  • How to Answer Interview Questions About Conflicts
    by Thea Kelley - September 19, 2018
    Some of the most common interview questions are about conflict management.

  • 4 Things I Learned About You from My 2018 Reader Survey
    by Melody Wilding - September 18, 2018
    Recently, I asked you (my readers!) to take a survey so I can learn more about what you struggle with when it comes to mentally and emotionally thriving in your career. I like to do this because it’s one of the best ways to get real, helpful feedback from the people I care about serving the most: you. This year I decided to do things a little differently. Instead of asking you boring, surface-level demographic questio...

    by Mark Gorkin - September 18, 2018

  • It's Not About Me, It's About The Job
    by Marshall Goldsmith - September 17, 2018
    My great friend, Chris Cuomo, journalist and news anchor on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, has some ideas about a concept I use in my coaching. I call it “showtime.” What it means to me is exemplified by some of the greatest leaders I’ve ever met. These great leaders show up rain or shine. They don’t complain and whine, but like a kid on Broadway show up and do their part. I was curious to hear what C...

    by Marshall Goldsmith - September 12, 2018
    “The great majority of people tend to focus downward. They are occupied with efforts rather than results. They worry over what the organization and their superiors ‘owe’ them and should do for them. And they are conscious above all of the authority they ‘should have.’ As a result they render themselves ineffectual.” - Peter Drucker You can make a positive difference, even when you do not...

    According to a 2017 CareerBuilder survey1 of 2,250 U.S. hiring managers and HR professionals survey, companies lost an average of $14,900 on every “bad hire” in the last year, and it's a common mistake — nearly three in four employers (74 percent) say they've hired the wrong person for a position and that half of these bad hires have quit within the first six months of employment.
