10 Ways for Managers to Prepare for Interviewing a Job Candidate
by Alvah Parker - Aug, 2010
Many attorneys and other business owners start interviewing people for a job without clearly understanding what kind of person would best fit into the organization. Hiring is often done out of desperation. The attorney or business owner has a large amount of work to complete and knows he/she can’t get it done on time alone so he/she looks for someone to help. Good hiring decisions are made with planning. Here are some ways...

by Lou Adler - Jul, 2010
I’ve just written a recent companion piece on ERE (July 30, 2010) on my top ten favorite networking techniques for recruiting passive candidates. There were actually more than 20, but here are the next five. Caution: there are two prerequisites when using any of these techniques.

Fierce Emotionally Intelligent Conversations - Emotions Have a Bad Rep
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Jul, 2010
. “No one has to change; everyone has to have the conversation.” —David Whyte In her two books, Fierce Conversations and Fierce Leadership, training and development consultant Susan Scott explains that the word “fierce” doesn’t imply menace, cruelty or threats.

A “Survivor” in the Corporate Jungle of Meetings
by Suzanne Bates - Jul, 2010
I used to be a devotee of the CBS show “Survivor.” It’s fascinating the way that human beings adapt and live through horrible, if contrived circumstances. In the corporate world, the equivalent of Survivor is the dreaded business meeting. You don’t have to be wearing a loin cloth and eating worms to feel like a contestant. Running from meeting to meeting, you must learn to outwit, outlast and outplay. Like travelers in a...
Career Management In The New Workplace
by Leslie B. Prager - Feb, 2010
The work world of today is dramatically different than the workplace was when I began my HR career back in 1980. Those were the days before the social media phenomenon, blackberries, the internet, virtual meetings, etc. The issues facing professionals today include the “new workplace”; fast-paced, on-demand staffing; a multi-generational, cross-cultural workforce; demographic trends such as the aging workforce and baby boomer...
by Nan S. Russell - Aug, 2009
The room was lovely, the bed inviting, the architecture interesting, and the philosophy appealing. That was my impression as we checked into a newly minted green-hotel in a resort town where we were eager to spend time relaxing. But when we checked out, lovely wasn't on my mind. Protective glass on the combined soaking tub/shower looked terrific, but giving a child a bath was impossible; oversized ultra-modern faucets made...

by Kris Parfitt - Aug, 2009
To borrow from a well known quote about training employees: Mentor them and they will leave; don’t mentor them and they will stay. Like any quote, it only holds merit if the cause and affect are compatible. However, managers across the board have seen a trend where if they spend the time and resources providing development initiatives for their employees, the ones who develop into leaders leave for more challenging oppor...

Sexual harassment in the workplace takes many forms and is not always obvious, particularly to those who are not properly trained on this type of harassment prevention. 4 To...

Take A Look At Mentoring
by Barbara Wulf, MS, CPCC - Feb, 2009
Throughout the ages, people have sought out the wisdom and counsel of those more experienced. Could you benefit from having a mentor? Does your employer encourage mentorship? Mentors provide their expertise to less experienced individuals of all ages in order to help them advance their careers, enhance their education and build their networks.
