I’m Sorry, You Have Two Minutes
by Suzanne Bates - Mar, 2010
“I feel that luck is preparation meeting opportunity.” - Oprah Winfrey Imagine this. You’ve worked for several weeks to prepare a 30 minute presentation. You’re feeling pretty good about it. You hope it will be enough to make an impression on your board, senior team or client. You walk into the room and they say, ”Listen, sorry, we’re really behind, uh...can you cover this in two minutes?” Freeze. Smile. Nod. OH...

Focus First, Network Second
by Thomas J. Denham - Mar, 2010
The number one reason clients work with me is because they lack focus. A typical client may have been tossing around a few ideas in their head for a while, but are just not sure. Sometimes, they’ve been on the Internet seeing what’s out there with little or no luck. Without a sharply defined focus, this process quickly becomes scattered leaving them feeling confused, discouraged and at-risk of giving up any hope for change....
Career Question: What Do You Have at Stake?
by Kris Parfitt - Mar, 2010
Considering a career change? Thinking of going for that promotion? Looking for a job? Something is motivating you to consider your options, but have you asked yourself the one question which once answered really identifies what would happen if you didn’t pursue the change? That question is simple in content yet profound in context: What do you have at stake? In other words, what do you have to lose in your life if you do NOT s...
The Four Day Week: Lessons Learned From Taking Fridays Off
by Rebecca Ryan - Feb, 2010
In January 2010, we shrank our work week from five days to four, giving everyone Fridays off. The idea was born of economic necessity; Fridays off seemed like a way to give something back to our teammates in exchange for the salary sacrifices they were willing to make. Our teammates loved it! On Fridays they sleep late, have lunch with friends, start long weekends with their loved ones, and pursue their hobbies. It’s been a...
There's Always A Reason Not To Do Something In Your Career
by Deborah Brown-Volkman - Feb, 2010
As a career coach, people are always talking to me about their careers. We discuss their dreams, wishes, and future plans. But when I ask some of these people how they will implement their plan, their reasons for not moving forward begin to flow. Their reasons vary. Some people tell me they are too old. Some are too young. Some have the wrong education or not enough. Some have too much experience, while others don't have a...
Customer Service as Horror Story - Give It The Boot
by Dawn Lennon - Feb, 2010
Ever wonder if really bad customer service is a conspiracy? Or is bad service just about poor leadership? I had to break my foot to find out. On a very hot summer morning, I was trying to teach a strong-willed colt of mine to walk nicely when being led. Instead he’d take two steps and rear. I would dodge his feet and try again. Well, my luck ran out. Up he went and down he came, digging his hoof into the outside of my le...
Three Ways to Tame Your Email (and get back in the zone)
by Rebecca Ryan - Feb, 2010
Since so much email is poorly contructed, it becomes our job as recipients to distill the meaning of the email. (Am I the only person who’s annoyed that anyone can send me an email, and then it’s my job to figure out what the hell they want?) Email’s not going away, so we may as well learn to domesticate it, so that it purrs like a kitten in our lap. Here are three ideas to help you tame your interoffice email. 1. Use...
When is the Right Time to Tell a Secret? (Shhhh don't tell anyone)
by Gary Cohen - Feb, 2010
How can you be telling me this now? I was counting on you! If you had only told me this when you first knew! I can't believe you waited this long! It's never fun learning a secret that's been kept from you. It's not fun holding onto a secret either that will leave others (coworkers, friends, loved ones) disappointed and, in all likelihood, angry. When, if ever, is it a good idea to keep secrets? And when is the best...
