7 Tips To You Put Your Best Speech Forward in Your Career
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Dec, 2014
Over the years, a number of my coaching clients have expressed a desire to improve their public speaking abilities – especially if they’re being called upon to make presentations at work. For many, speaking in front of a live audience is a daunting proposition. Some clients have admitted to feeling like “a deer in the headlights” when speaking to groups. As someone who gives presentations regularly, I can say, from exper...
Give your customers a break and become a ROCK STAR
by Connie Pheiff - Dec, 2014
If you’re like me, you’re on overload with all the ads, blogs, and post coming at us from the digital world of marketing. I hear coaches saying you need to “blog at least 3 times per day.” “Respond to other blogs at least 25 times per week.” The inter-coastal digital highway feels like sitting in a traffic jam on I-10 in Los Angeles during rush hour. UGH! Stop just sending out BLAH, BLAH, BLAH and limit the number of times...
In Praise of the Walking Meeting
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Dec, 2014
I always appreciate a well-run meeting, and, these days, many of the meetings I attend are not only well run, but well-walked too. I’ve recently become a devotee of walking meetings, and I join an ever-growing contingent dedicated to getting up and out of the office to meet on-the-move. Feet First, a website that promotes walkable communities, traces the walking meeting back to Ancient Greece and Aristotle’s peripatetic...

Career Advice I’d Give My Younger Self
by Bernie Frazier - Dec, 2014
I officially started my career on June 13, 1989 (wow, I can’t believe it’s been that long…and I remember the date!). I worked as a Sales Representative for an international Consumer Packaged Goods company. Shortly after I began, I was placed on a recruiting team. For the next almost 25 years, recruiting, training and speaking played major to exclusive roles in my work. During this same 25 years, my career weaved from co...
Career Change: Is Now the Time?
by Georgia Adamson - Dec, 2014
Recently I published a post about midlife (or other) career change. Related to that is the situation that too many people face–being in a lousy (read: toxic) work situation that clearly isn’t going to get substantially better soon, if ever.
