Career Stagnation: Why You Need an Exit / Re-Entry Strategy
by Dee McCrorey - Aug, 2010
"Why," you might be thinking, "Should I worry about an exit strategy when I don't plan to leave my employer?" With worldwide unemployment rates stuck at we're-not-out-of-the-woods-yet, people with full-time, decent paying jobs will likely stay the course (for now). However, many professionals are nearing burnout after 18 months of relentless stress about jobs, their financial situation, and quality of life. Burnout does...
7 Key Aspects of a Professional Business Philosophy
by Rob Taub - Aug, 2010
The dictionary definition of philosophy is “a set of principles, beliefs and aims, underlying somebody’s practice or conduct”. As such, a “business philosophy” can be both a guide to help you grow a business, and in the ‘business of careers’ it can be a guide to help you decide what to do…and where to do it. So, define what you consider important, and you can be on your way to uncovering your “best fit” job opportunities. I...
12 Steps for Climbing to the Top of Your Career
by Thomas J. Denham - Aug, 2010
I have been climbing mountains across this country for more than 30 years. There are plenty of analogies between climbing to the top of mountains and climbing to the top of your career. I recently returned from a successful summit of The Grand Teton in Wyoming. It was the most difficult and dangerous ascent of my career. Here are some lessons from the top. 1. Pick Your Peak Carefully. Be sure where you want to go is in...
Resiliency-How Do You Measure Up?
by Sherri Edwards - Aug, 2010
This has been a year filled with endings: banks failing, businesses closing their doors, homes going into foreclosure. Everyone has been impacted by the turbulence in the business world, and the need to adjust quickly is greater than ever. If we don’t learn another thing from the economic wake left behind, resiliency is a quality everyone needs to understand and develop to carry on in the years ahead. The initial thought f...
Executive Coaching to Avoid Bad Leadership Decisions
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Aug, 2010
A growing body of research reveals that our behavior and decisions are influenced by an array of strong psychological undercurrents, all of which are more powerful and pervasive than we realize. Like streams, they converge to become even more powerful. By charting these undercurrents and their unanticipated effects, we can identify our faulty thinking that lead us to make irrational decisions. Despite a great need for them,...
Stop telling us, start showing us your talents
by Elizabeth Freedman - Jul, 2010
Have you ever thought any of the following: I’m so bored with my job! I could be doing so much more for my clients…but they aren’t using me to my fullest potential! I know that I am capable of doing more than what I am doing and getting paid for. Why can’t anybody else see it? You’ve heard the expression, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. Here’s a new expression to consider: It’s not what you know, it’s who yo...
How a Vacation Could Save Your Job—and Your Life
by Brad Karsh - Jul, 2010
Question: Is it even worth taking a summer vacation? Conceptually, vacation is a great idea. In fact, that idea keeps many of us going. Work can be tough and even unbearable, but there’s nothing better than the notion of enjoying an entire week with nothing to do except relax on the beach--and getting paid to do it! Yet it rarely plays out that way. A much more likely scenario is one of frantic preparations and a virtu...
Start a Career Journal Today
by Andy Robinson - Jul, 2010
One of the ideas that I share with my career coaching clients is to start and maintain a "Career Journal" -- usually in the form of a three-ring notebook. The purpose of the Journal or Notebook is to serve as a placeholder to gather, collect and maintain relevant career development and career management material -- including items such as: 1.Your Professional Development Plan, 2.Your "Learning List" -- things you ne...
A Tale of Two Networkers
by Dawn Bugni - Jul, 2010
Networking. The mere mention of the word strikes terror in the hearts of even the most seasoned professionals. For some reason, the thought of connecting with fellow human beings has become more like something we have to do, instead of something that happens naturally. What used to be pleasant conversation and sharing morphed into to-do list entries and deadlines. We set specific dates and list relevant topics for planned cont...
Gutsy, Courageous and Fearless (Oh My!)
by Dee McCrorey - Jul, 2010
Some weeks back I was writing a blog post about an upcoming Big Dreamers guest, Allyson Tapin, who I referred to as fearless. It got me thinking about the terms we use interchangeably for outside-the-box behavior: brave, gutsy, courageous, fearless, chutzpah, risktaker to name a few. This reminded me of the classic 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz, where the Cowardly Lion hooks up with three pals in search of something differen...
