  • 5 Ways to Keep Your Career on Track During Life Crisis
    by Melody Wilding - August 2, 2019
    You’ve made your career a top priority. You strive for excellence and may have even made sacrifices to advance in the workplace. When life throws you a curveball, it can be challenging — and somewhat disorienting — to stay on track. Major life crises, like a family member being diagnosed with cancer, financial troubles or other life events can (rightfully) consume a lot of your time and attention. If yo...
  • Generation Z: What Every Leader Needs to Know
    by Lindsey Pollak - July 31, 2019
    While Millennials in the workplace have dominated our thinking about generations for years, it’s time to acknowledge that they are no longer the “newbies” in the workplace — in fact, the oldest Millennials are now aged 38. So, while decoding the Millennial mindset is still an important part of the work I do as a multigenerational workplace speaker and consultant, much of my clients’ attenti...
  • Narcissistic Leaders—The Destructive Lies They Tell Themselves and Others
    by Kathy Caprino - July 29, 2019
    When I was working in the corporate arena years ago, I had the great misfortune of reporting to and working with a number of extremely toxic colleagues and managers whose behavior hurt me and was also a complete mystery to me. I couldn’t understand their raging, their defensiveness, they inability to be challenged or questioned, or their penchant for drumming people out who were not obsequious and total “yes&rdq...
  • How to Put an End to Chronic Complaining
    by Steve Farber - July 22, 2019
    I just happened to be walking past the TV not too long ago and saw the Today show’s third hour, the one where they deal with less serious topics. The anchors were talking about something they were doing all week, a “complaint cleanse.” Turns out, they were inspired by a social-media post from a poet. That poet, Cleo Wade, you might say, complained about complaining: “Complaints have no magic,”...
  • Millenials and Gen Z Are Changing the Culture of the Workplace
    by Debra Wheatman - July 12, 2019
    In the bygone era, prior to the late 1980s, life in corporate America was good. It was comfortable. Predictable. Secure. All you had to do was go to college (or not), get a job, work your way up, and then, 40 years later, retire with a full pension. By 1988, “downsizing” had come into favor as a quick way to boost both shareholder value and earnings per share. In 1993, IBM, which had previously never reduced it...
  • 3 Assertive Communication Techniques to Earn the Respect You Deserve
    by Melody Wilding - July 10, 2019
    Aggressive people are hostile, adopting the “my way or the highway” stance. Passive people give up their power and are easily taken advantage of, which creates a surefire recipe for burnout and resentment. You want to be a happy medium—an assertive person and assertive communication. Assertive people seek out win-win scenarios and make their desires and beliefs known. Confident and assured, they approac...
  • Procrastination Is An Excuse, Not A Reason
    by Sherri Edwards - July 9, 2019
    One of the biggest factors I see impacting many people’s pursuit of their employment goals stems from making excuses for not getting things done on time — or, in some cases, ever. When asking someone why they didn’t carry out their objectives for the week, I’ve heard everything from the usual “my dog ate my homework” to “I couldn’t do it because I had to take my dead cat to th...
  • Summer Solstice - Put Fresh Life Into Your Job Search
    by Carole Kanchier - June 24, 2019
    Friday, June 21, 2019, was the Summer Solstice in the northern hemisphere. It was the longest day and the shortest night of the year, and the beginning of summer. The summer solstice is honored in several cultures as the union between heaven and earth. As we emerge out of spring, where we were in a period of renewal, birthing new ideas, and shedding icy layers, we slowly grow into summer, a time of manifestation and ripenin...
  • Don’t Be a Work Loser – Take All Your Paid Time Off
    by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - June 18, 2019
    As a recovering workaholic, I strive regularly to integrate life and career to honor my personal relationships and my professional ambition. My life often resembles a roller coaster with ups and downs of activity and never a steady balance. This reality check has allowed me to navigate the ultra-busy career times and offset them with precious down time for me. I’ll admit that in previous years, I have not taken al...
  • 4 Things Newly Promoted Leaders Need to do Right Away
    by Steve Farber - June 14, 2019
    When the company taps you on the back, don’t look back. Think about what you need to do (and what not to do) to make yourself successful in your new role. If this scenario hasn’t happened to you, or not recently, it is surely something you dream about. You’re called in to the boss’s office for a meeting. There, you get the happy news that you’ve been tapped for a new role at your company, po...
