Nothing Good Happens After Midnight
by Suzanne Bates - Aug, 2011
The mother of a friend of mine always used to say, "Nothing good happens after midnight." After reading the August 1st WSJ article about the Allstate insurance executive who got fired for unflattering remarks about his boss, I would only add "...at the company off-site meeting." The fellow who undoubtedly wishes he had stopped at one (martini, scotch, beer) is Joseph Lacher, the now former president of Allstate's home and a...
Are you walking the talk?
by Hallie Crawford - Aug, 2011
On a recent career group coaching call my client, Tracey, said something brilliant. In the previous week she had been working on becoming more aware of her behavior by observing herself more to understand if she was walking her talk. She has been talking about staying committed to her job search and remaining open to new ideas. Well she realized that some of this was just lip service and she wasn’t actually walking her talk!...

Leaders: An Idea to Kickstart the Week
by Andy Robinson - Aug, 2011
I have a couple of executive coaching clients who share a great Monday morning habit -- one that really sets the tone for a positive week. It's a great way to kickstart the week and inspire your team members. It involves four simple steps: 1.Write down the names of all of your direct reports on a blank piece of paper -- no particular order, just a simple list with a few blank lines between each name. 2.For each person o...

When you think about personal branding, most of the time, you consider things like, what does my personal appearance say about my professionalism? Or what does my web site say about my innovation? Or what does my speech say about my work ethic? What gets forgotten, or really not even consider, is what does my office say about my company? And I mean physical office. Not your wonderful co-workers and superiors, but rather the...
Forgotten Forms of First Impressions
by Valerie Sokolosky - Aug, 2011
A crucial component of your professional image is your first impression. Your word choice, your tone, your appearance and your body language communicate a particular message to the person that you are meeting. Your entire relationship is built on this first interaction. Even if we don’t do a good job of preparing for this first meeting, most of us know that first impressions matter. We remember the offhanded comment said by...

Even in our world of 140-charater tweets, 160-character texts and txt msg spk, most people make the mistake of talking and writing way more than is necessary. Here are some reasons why concise...

Top 10 Tweets... Untwisted
by Kimberly Schneiderman - Jul, 2011
Twitter is a great tool for coaches like me. I can give off the cuff bits of advice and insight in just a few seconds to all my followers on Twitter, fans on Facebook, and contacts on LinkedIn. As a general rule, I tweet about 3 times per day Monday through Thursday. Sometimes you’ll even see a tweet on a Friday or a Saturday if I come across something really good. The only problem is, well, I’m limited in space and someti...
How are you asking for help?
by Dawn Bugni - Jul, 2011
I received the following via email a few Fridays ago: “Good Afternoon, I am currently unemployed and for the past few months I have been trying to present better ways to get my resume points of view across to recruiters.
