3 Steps to Becoming the Boss
by Lindsey Pollak - Sep, 2014
I like to define the word leader quite broadly, as someone who has influence over others, with or without formal authority. Even if you don’t yet have anyone reporting to you, or you work alone, or you’re a student, or you’re a stay-at-home parent — in my opinion you have every right to call yourself a leader. More than anything else, I believe leadership begins on the inside with the way you approach the world and your desire...
Questers Take Charge of Your Career
by Carole Kanchier - Sep, 2014
Are you a Quester? Would you like to become one? What are Questers, anyway? Questers have been around for centuries. Many have made significant contributions to humankind. Galilei Galilio, the Italian physicist, proved the earth revolved around the sun; and Dame Margaret Thatcher fought for the right of individuals to run their own lives. My research on occupational change, described in the 2014 edition of "Questers...
Will You Settle For What You Think You Deserve?
by Bob Roth - Sep, 2014
Many college students can recite a litany of reasons for why their performance is relatively average when it comes to college and career endeavors. They talk about their lack of resources, their family history and the disadvantages they have faced. Because these students focus on personal problems, shortcomings and failures, they are trapped in the mind set of someone who is likely to underperform. For most students,...
Entry, Mastery, and Disengagement: Where Are You in the Career Cycle
by Carole Kanchier - Sep, 2014
Do you feel moody, apprehensive, unhappy? Are you wondering what to do with your life? You know that something’s missing, but you can’t put your finger on it. My research on occupational change, described in "Questers Dare to Change Your Job and Life," suggest that growing adults experience cycles of discontent every five to ten years with the average cycle occurring every 7.5 years. These periods of dissatisfaction may...
Communicate with Power: Master the Unconscious
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Sep, 2014
Most communication is unconscious. You may think you’re delivering clear and consistent messages based on your words, but unconscious nonverbal behaviors are key to communicating with power. Startling advances in brain science have made it possible for us to gather and test evidence as we uncover the unconscious mind’s amazing strengths. While our conscious brains can handle some 40 bits of information per second, the unc...
What Does Labor Day Mean to You?
by Carole Kanchier - Aug, 2014
What do enjoy doing on Labor Day? What does Labor Day mean to you? Labor Day is so much a part of our culture that we rarely pause to consider its purpose and meaning. Labor Day is often more associated with fairs and a long weekend, than its original meaning – affirmation of the dignity and worth of workers. Labor Day began in Canada in 1872, when the Toronto Trades Assembly organised the first significant workers' dem...
Act Like A Business Owner To Advance Your Career
by Andy Robinson - Aug, 2014
Whether you work for a global corporation, a small business, or for yourself, it is absolutely essential you THINK and ACT like an “owner” if you want to advance your career. You need to “own” your job, own your role as a leader or manager, own your roles and responsibilities – put yourself in the shoes of a business owner, and think and behave as any owner would do. This is not new career advice; many of us have heard this...
Are You a Creative Employee?
by Georgia Adamson - Aug, 2014
If you think you aren’t a creative employee, you might want to think again. And if you aren’t being creative in some way, can you change that? The tendency is to think of creative employees in terms of fields such as graphic arts, marketing communications, and such–in other words, either visual or written creativity that’s an essential aspect of the individual’s job. Those of you who don’t work in such fields might be convi...
Stop the Busy-ness! Redefine Success on Your Terms
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Aug, 2014
We all love to talk about how busy we are. It means we’re needed. It means we have places to go and people to see, and it also means we may well be running ourselves into the ground. Blogger Guy Kawasaki went so far as to implore readers to ‘stop the glorification of busy’, and he’s so right. We wear our busy-ness like a badge of honor, and yet where does busy get us? Overscheduled, anxiety-ridden, tired and even sick. H...
Dressing Well for Work on a Budget
by Shun McGhee - Aug, 2014
I am the youngest of five children and grew up in what would be considered a lower-middle class family. While performing research for this blog, I found there is a large gap between lower middle class and upper middle class families. Rather than demonstrating the disparity with numbers, I thought it would be beneficial to describe using popular television shows. “The Cosby Show,” a house headed by a medical doctor and the othe...
