by Tai Goodwin - Feb, 2010
If you work full time – do you realize more than 1/3 of your day revolves around work? Consider the time you spend preparing for work, traveling to and from work, and then actually at work. That’s a lot of time -too much time in my opinion if it is all about just a paycheck. There are periods of time in almost everyone’s career where we work to live. But wouldn’t life be a whole lot more meaningful if you could enjoy the work ...
Too Many Words
by Suzanne Bates - Feb, 2010
Okay, so the other day, I opened up a presentation with this photo. It was Storytelling for Sales Professionals. The caption read, ”Let’s look at the underbelly of your preparation for customers - how do you REALLY get ready for a sales meeting?” Yea, they laughed. (I was so grateful. Isn’t it nice to get a laugh?) The point I hoped to make was that the more experienced you are the less likely you are to prepare becau...
How to Get Through a Big Change Without Having a Cow
by Louise Fletcher - Feb, 2010
I haven’t blogged for quite a while. That’s not because I ran out of things to say (My husband will confirm that I never run out of things to say) or because I just got lazy and spent the last month eating chocolate and watching reruns of The Golden Girls. I haven’t blogged because our site was being redesigned. Once the blog content had been moved, I had to wait for the new site to go live before adding any new posts. A fe...

Got a Job That’s Crushing You? Start To Lift The Weight
by Dawn Lennon - Feb, 2010
Oh, boy, it’s exciting to get a new job, especially with a new company. Everything looks so promising. We feel really good about ourselves–validated, reinforced, and successful. It’s amazing how our careers can start out in one place and morph to another. It’s all so gradual that we hardly know it’s happening until one day we realize that we’re someplace that we don’t want to be. Or, more often, a place that’s crushing ...

Frustrated About Your Performance Appraisal? Time To Take Control
by Dawn Lennon - Feb, 2010
Here we go again! It’s time for the annual performance review, an experience that creates either euphoric satisfaction or stunned disbelief. Anything in the middle feels like a dull thud and doesn’t amount to much. Once we get our rating news, we’re left with several options: reach higher, get better, give up, or hide. Performance reviews often feel like verdicts by a one person jury. That’s because the process for ev...

How good are you at giving “constructive feedback”? Is the feedback you give truly constructive? Whether giving someone feedback or expressing your opinion, do you do it in a way that communicates: A) “You’re a fool” or B) “Here’s my perspective.” I was just reminded of this while reading responses to a question posed in a speakers e-newsletter I received. One of the members asked fellow members for their perspective ...
Fact or Opinion?
by Nan S. Russell - Feb, 2010
"You ain't going nowhere, son. You ought to go back to drivin' a truck." What if Elvis believed this Grand Ole Opry manager's critique after his l954 performance? Or the Beatles listened in 1962 when Decca Recording Company responded, "We don't like their sound. Groups of guitars are on the way out." What if Rudyard Kipling quit writing when the San Francisco Examiner told him, "I'm sorry, but you just don't know how to use...
Want To Get Promoted? Do Less - Delegate More
by Tai Goodwin - Feb, 2010
Have you ever noticed that it is those who have mastered the ability to delegate that often get opportunities for top projects or promoted? This is where words speak louder than actions - where doing instead of delegating can keep you from moving forward in your career. For many of us at work, when a crisis arises we rush in cape blowing in the wind intent on saving the day. And for some of us, it doesn’t have to be a cris...
