Writing Your Bio – Tips To Succeed
by Claudine Vainrub - Feb, 2010

Google the name of your favorite celebrity, visit their website and you’ll probably find a bio with his or her accomplishments, career beginnings, areas of expertise and much more. Well, you don’t have to be famous to sell yourself like a celebrity. The beauty of a bio is that it helps you tell your story in a way that sells you well. 1. It’s like dating – First I...
Three Ways to Tame Your Email (and get back in the zone)
by Rebecca Ryan - Feb, 2010
Since so much email is poorly contructed, it becomes our job as recipients to distill the meaning of the email. (Am I the only person who’s annoyed that anyone can send me an email, and then it’s my job to figure out what the hell they want?) Email’s not going away, so we may as well learn to domesticate it, so that it purrs like a kitten in our lap. Here are three ideas to help you tame your interoffice email. 1. Use ...
When is the Right Time to Tell a Secret? (Shhhh don't tell anyone)
by Gary Cohen - Feb, 2010
How can you be telling me this now? I was counting on you! If you had only told me this when you first knew! I can't believe you waited this long! It's never fun learning a secret that's been kept from you. It's not fun holding onto a secret either that will leave others (coworkers, friends, loved ones) disappointed and, in all likelihood, angry. When, if ever, is it a good idea to keep secrets? And when is the best ...
Winning Support for Your Ideas
by Suzanne Bates - Feb, 2010
The other day I was working with a client who is about to roll out a two year strategy for her functional area in the business. She and her team have worked for six months to put together a beautiful plan. It’s incredible -on paper. The program design considers the most current thinking and research in the field. It will set a new course for the company and make them the envy of their competitors. And, if they roll it out...
The Number One Secret to Writing a Great Resume
by Louise Fletcher - Feb, 2010
Search the web for ‘resume help’ or ‘resume advice’ and you’ll find lots of pearls of wisdom. All of which are true. But all of which are ultimately misleading. Most resume advice articles will tell you to focus on achievements not responsibilities, or to use lots of action-oriented words, or to be sure you communicate your ‘personal brand.’ I’ve written these articles myself and I meant well, I really did! But all of this ...
The State of Your Resume
by Debra Wheatman - Feb, 2010
Just recently I did a webinar regarding “Creating a Killer Resume.” Before the event we conducted an impromptu poll. Respondents were asked to rate their own resumes; they were given the following choices: 1. Below average 2. Average 3. Pretty good 4. Perfect This is what we found... More than half of the people (56%) selected average, in other words more than half of the respondents felt their resume was OK. Let...
Three Keys to Time Management: Prioritize, Decide, Set Boundaries
by Tai Goodwin - Feb, 2010
How often have you said, “If I only had more time, ” or, “I wish there were more hours in the day.” We say that often intending to imply that if we only had more time then we would get the rest we need or slow down to a more normal pace. But chances are that if we did have more hours in the day, we would immediately fill them up with more things to do instead of creating the space we need to take a much needed break. We don...
We’re All Connected Somehow...
by Dawn Bugni - Feb, 2010
I was going to title this, “It’s a small world after all”, but then “that song” would be stuck in our heads all day and I didn’t want to do that to us. I’m reading Malcolm Gladwell’s The Tipping Point. In it he recounts Stanley Milgram’s small world experiment, the original study about six-degrees of separation. (Which of course lead to the Kevin Bacon’s six degrees of separation game...but I digress.) This experiment real...
How About A Heads Up?
by Nan S. Russell - Feb, 2010
It didn't take long while on safari in Botswana, to begin to recognize the animal calls heralding a predator roaming in the area. What intrigued me was the pass-along path those calls took, from animal group to animal group. The shrieks of baboons, the trumpeting of elephants, the screams of francolins, the cries of impalas were picked up by adjacent animals and sent out for as long as the threat remained. In that predator-...
Don’t Underestimate The Power of The Thank You Letter
by Rosa Elizabeth Vargas - Feb, 2010
Have you ever felt frustrated after an interview? Sure you have! I know you’ve mentally gone over your interview answers and…you remember what you DID NOT say and you realize you missed an opportunity to REINFORCE your candidacy. Well, this is why you write a strategic Thank You letter, which will position you back in the “game.” Of course, it all depends on how badly you’ve screwed things up. Sometimes, there is no backpe...
