by Lindsey Pollak - Jan, 2011
are most on my mind as we head into a fresh new year. Here are my thoughts: 1. The job market is not improving fast enough for most Americans. I have to agree with a recent New York Times op-ed by Bob Herbert, which pointed out that, while many data experts are painting a somewhat rosy picture of the economy in 2011, prospects for the 15 million+ unemployed Americans are still very grim.

by Miriam Salpeter - Jan, 2011
It may be unexpected advice from a job-search coach, but ideally, you should not be looking for a job. Instead, you should be looking for problems to solve and letting the jobs come to you. Confused?

by Todd Rhoad - Jan, 2011
Creating future leaders for business is on the verge of becoming a crisis. Three reasons reign supreme on the subject: it limits power and threatens the future, companies aren’t good at it and the qualities of tomorrow’s leader are nothing short of the modern day Da Vinci.

Who’s Encouraging You?

One of my lawyer executive coaching clients confided in me this week, that when she brings her little girl to the office hardly anybody even says hello to her child.
