  • Are You Ethical at Work?
    by Carole Kanchier - June 18, 2018
    Every day, we're faced with situations that require us to make decisions that have ethical implications.

Ethics is the branch of philosophy dealing with values relating to human conduct, with respect to the rightness and wrongness of certain actions and...

    Technology makes a wealth of information available to us. That provides the modern job seeker with many advantages. As we learned in a previous article, job seekers can feel more prepared than ever before for a job interview, make sure the job they are considering is the right fit, and connect with others who work in that capacity. However, technology also presents job seekers with unique challenges that didn’t exist...
  • Stop Making Random Efforts and Conduct an Effective Job Search
    by Sherri Edwards - June 12, 2018
    In my last post, I covered the reasons why a passive job search typically does not produce the desired or longer-term results. An effective job search begins with taking a controlled approach, which is very much the same as building a business. You need to know what you want to accomplish, who your target market is, what they need and if you can supply it (for the right price). Once you have established what you want, you can...
  • You Can't Coach the Uncoachables
    by Marshall Goldsmith - June 12, 2018
    Even if you are the best coach in the world, if the person you are coaching shouldn’t be coached, the coaching isn’t going to work. My friend Chris Coffey, who along with Frank Wagner, leads the Stakeholder Centered Coaching® certification in the U.S. and has trained thousands of coaches himself, understands this and it is one of the first things he teaches in every workshop. He puts it to his students very sim...

    'I quit my job by email since that's how I normally communicated with my boss. But I've been thinking that quitting by email may not be appropriate...!' Have you had enough? Is quitting the right option? If so, resign with class. But first, know why you're leaving. Do you have patience with customers or co-workers?

    by Lindsey Pollak - June 7, 2018
    We all know the “it” words for leadership qualities today, those buzzwords that pop up over and over to describe the qualities leader aspire to. Frankly, I’m totally over words like “ninja” and “guru.” But there are several words that are common in today’s management vernacular that really do describe great leaders. If you’re a leader or aspiring to be one, I hope you&rsquo...
  • 4 Ways to Stop Hating Networking and Make it More Fun
    by Lisa Rangel - June 6, 2018
    Fact: I used to despise networking. A sense of dread would come over me. I would do it, but I hated it. I established routines to network regularly, but I would fall off the wagon and have to start over again. I dreaded starting over even more, but I would do it. I have come to learn this is a common vibe among a lot of us. Regardless of the need to network – need a new job, drum up business, update ski...

    by Steve Farber - June 5, 2018
    The summit of Denali (formerly known as Mount McKinley) is 20,310 feet above sea level, and Werner Berger was 200 feet from the peak. Just another 20 minutes of climbing and he would cross the tallest mountain in North America off his list. The weather, however, had turned nasty. And rather than risk getting caught in a whiteout, Berger’s group turned back. “Everybody was so disappointed for me and wondered how...
