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...

Your fork is not a shovel: Business etiquette for the 21st century
by Elizabeth Freedman - Jul, 2010
After attending many a business lunch, corporate event, dinner outing, and more under the guise of “work fun,” (raise your hand if you think that’s an oxymoron ) I feel compelled to write the following, rather obvious statement: Your Fork is not a Shovel. And while we’re on the subject, I might also mention that your knife is not a saw and that your napkin should not be waved around like you’re heading off to a bullfight late...

Chances are that you have a career switch in your future. Maybe changes in your professional field will force you to look for something new. Or maybe you will elect to step off the treadmill and find a career that is less stressful or more personally rewarding. Perhaps, like me, you’ll keep things interesting by reinventing your career several times. If you are beginning to think about a new career direction, but don’t know...
Giving Feedback To Gen Y Employees
by David Lee - Jul, 2010
"Giving Gen Y Employees Corrective Feedback: What Can Video Games Teach You?" One of the biggest complaints I hear from managers about their Gen Y employees is how defensive they get when given corrective feedback. You can dramatically increase how receptive your Gen Y employees are to feedback if you borrow from the world of video games. In video games, feedback is an essential part of the game. It’s how you know you...
What Would Bill Clinton Do?
by Suzanne Bates - Jul, 2010
I’ve never met Bill Clinton but many of my friends have, and all say the same thing about him. He’s so...in the moment. When he shakes your hand he focuses on you like you’re the most important person in the world. For that fleeting moment – 30 seconds or a minute- you believe you’re his nhew BFF. Even if you’re a Republican. That got me wondering – what would Bill Clinton do if his cell phone rang while he was locked i...
