Back to the ‘Kids’ Table’: Should Millennials Have Their Own Space?
by Lindsey Pollak - Jun, 2015
Remember being stuck at the kids’ table at family gatherings? In some ways, it was fun to be able to kick back with the cousins and avoid probing questions from relatives you barely knew about whether you had a boyfriend or what “hooking up” meant. (Or maybe that was just my family…) But, in a way, you also felt as though you were being segregated just for being a kid. Like you didn’t have anything to add to the grownup co...

With Ebola and myriad other diseases in the news and flu season just about to kick off, some people are calling for a ban on the handshake. Is that the right move for your business?

And, many of us believe that if we worry enough, we can control the outcome. Well, we can’t. No o...
5 No-fail Ways to Finally Start Your Next Big Project
by Melody Wilding - Jun, 2015
If you’re like me, you have a growing to-do list filled with big ideas to accomplish. Yet day after day, life gets in the way and our passion project falls by the wayside. We make excuses like “I’ll do it tomorrow” or “I’m not in the mindset right now”, waiting for the perfect moment of inspiration to suddenly strike. The funny thing is that “perfect moment” doesn’t actually exist. Maybe you don’t know how to start....
3 Ways to Shake Up Your Mentoring Program for Better Results
by Lindsey Pollak - May, 2015
Remember that old song we learned as kids, "Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other's gold?" It's a good reminder for the workplace. As individuals, we benefit from having a professional network comprised of both longtime connections and new workplace relationships.

Build a Strong Reputation – Communicate Minor Achievements
by Alexandra Levit - May, 2015
Build a strong reputation by making the most of minor achievements. In my seminars, I am fond of discussing the importance of perception. You could be the smartest, most talented individual your organization has ever hired, but if people don’t like you or value what you have to offer, you’re dead in the water. Fortunately, it is relatively easy to project a positive image. When you meet people in person, make sure you...

Do You Mistake Net Worth for Self Worth?
by Michelle Kerrigan - May, 2015
One of the largest confidence killers I’ve ever seen is when people confuse net worth with self worth. Net Worth = The value of your financial assets, minus your liabilities. Determined by the market, it is your external worth. It is an asset that fluctuates over time. It is fluid and quite vulnerable. Self Worth = Respect for yourself. Your value as determined by you.
