The following are some tips you can use for having fierce conversations at work, particularly difficult conversations that have to deal ...
...and then “shut up.”
by Dawn Bugni - Jul, 2010
Back in the late 70s, early 80s I attended a Careertrack seminar. I don’t remember the name of the seminar. I don’t really remember the exact topic, but one story the presenter shared stuck with me all these years. The presenter, (we’ll call her Sue) traveled across the US doing seminars. Because of a hectic travel schedule, Sue spent a lot of time in airports peopl e watching. One day, she noticed a woman in an absolutely ...
Lessons from the Coach Seats
by Suzanne Bates - Jul, 2010
You learn a lot from the savvy traveler who has to fly coach. Of course they all carry on; and they’ve learned to stand as close to the miserable airline representative collecting boarding passes as is socially acceptable. This way they are positioned to sail forth with alacrity onto the jetway when their row is called. This is critical because it guarantees a prized overhead luggage spot - you’re two steps ahead of the v...

As you can probably tell from reading my blog, I love lists. Top 10 These. Absolute 5 Thats. Well, I recently came across a fantastic list of 10 Everyday Super Foods, described by WebMD as “multitaskers,” such as nuts, blueberries and salmon, that are packed with multiple nutrients to help you stay healthy, promote wellness and weight control and taste good, too. This got me thinking: What are the “Everyday Super Foods” for...
Have You Compromised Your Values?
by Barbara Giamanco - Jul, 2010
At the core of what I believe about success in life is personal accountability and responsibility. This is certainly true in sales. If you are not hitting quota, have you taken the time to evaluate your own actions, attitudes and beliefs? Or, as so often happens, are you blaming the economy, the local market, your boss, the crappy CRM system that was installed, or maybe the prospective buyer who doesn’t call you back? It is ea...
Wanted: High Flying Career. Will Work Without a Net! Risking Failure for Success
by Dawn Lennon - Jul, 2010
High wire acts. Acrobats. Human cannonballs. Circus careers come with big performance expectations and high stakes. The consequences of failure can be dire. Successful circus performers are masters of precision, flexibility, teamwork, and consistency. They own every move they make for their own good and the safety of others. Flying through the air on a trapeze with no net below is the measure of a career that you own. Wh...
How to Communicate Across Generations
by Alexandra Levit - Jul, 2010
In every talk I give at a corporation or conference on intergenerational communication, someone raises their hand and says that people of different generations don’t vary in their styles and that it’s all in my head. If you’re tempted to think that, here are some examples of the types of remarks I’m always hearing: Born before 1945, they’re the loyalists, the ones who spent a lifetime at the company and expect to be reward...

Come to the Rescue or Let ‘Em Squirm? Your Call! The Value of Leadership Intervention
by Dawn Lennon - Jul, 2010
Ever been in a tight spot at work? Over your head? Out of your league? I sure have. Terrible thoughts start to take over: • I’ve lost all credibility. • My career is toast. • I’m going to hear about this. • This is my last shot. If we could yell, “HELP!” we would. But would anyone throw us a rope? “Hey, Boss, I’m over here.” If we’re lucky, we work around leaders who are willing to step forward when we’re in ...
Reflecting on Career Mentoring – 4th of July Raspberry Picking
by Julie Walraven - Jul, 2010
Yesterday, I picked raspberries at my father-in-law Bob’s house. The raspberries are early this year. In other years, the raspberries were at their peak during the week of the fair in early August. But spring came early and so did the raspberries. No ordinary raspberry patch Bob has no ordinary raspberry patch with just a few bushes. It feels like a jungle in there. I picked for over an hour, emptying my container severa...
