No One Told Me...
by Dawn Bugni - Mar, 2010
No one told me... That was the response I heard when I asked a client about the monetary impact of changes she’d suggested and implemented. I pressed further. “Can you remember anything about how things changed after you introduced your idea?” Her response...a nervous giggle, then **crickets**. I’m not picking on her. It’s not the first time I’ve gotten that response. Pragmatically, we know no job comes with guarantees....
Face To Face

With one empty seat left, we were relieved and delighted when our friend Marcia unexpectedly appeared, exclaiming well, my day just got a whole lot bette...

Are You Getting The REALLY Important Things Done?
by Andy Robinson - Mar, 2010
One of the very common themes I come across when coaching my clients is the challenge of staying focused on the IMPORTANT at work. With so many "balls in the air" these days, the "magnetism" of the constant email "bell," the drop-bys in your office, the ringing telephone and the many distractions common to all of us, most busy professionals have a very hard time focusing their efforts on the things that are truly most importa...

The cyclical and now ubiquitously appearing phrase, back to basics, ignites supporters. The reasonableness of returning to previously successful principles, ethics, systems, accountability, approaches, or you-name-it, appears a tantalizing remedy for our individual or collective woes. Who can argue with the refocusing trend of business to trim waste or reconnect with customers, or an expert's approach to help income-starve...

Prepared for Randomness
by Gary Cohen - Mar, 2010
You work hard to become knowledgeable yet, admittedly, it is easier for some than for others. Even before you learn to speak a journey has begun. As a youth perhaps you begin to emulate some of your parent's beliefs regarding religion, politics, and culture. As time advances you move on to more complex ideas such as advanced equations, the teachings of early philosophers, and even how your system of government was designed to...
Who is Talking About You Online?
by Joshua Waldman - Mar, 2010
Your Personal Brand is not a static thing. It’s not a thing at all. Perhaps, a brand is best described as a process. Think of a candle. At first, the candle produces no flame.
