Taking Vacation? Its Career Value Is In Your Sound Bite
by Dawn Lennon - Jul, 2011
Nothing is more glorious than time off. When we get hired, our burning question after salary is usually about vacation days. That said, it’s been written that Americans often don’t take all their vacation time. In some cases it’s because we: Don’t want to fall behind Worry that things will go wrong in our absence Are reluctant to delegate Lack confidence in our job security Haven’t developed motivating interests outs...
BOOSTERS & DRAINERS
by Nan S. Russell - Jul, 2011
Like huge anchors on cruise ships, other people can hold you down. Not intentionally, but their negativity impacts you. It's hard to be winning at working when you're anchored in place; hard to see the next great idea and enthusiastically embrace it when you're feeling a sticky heaviness; and hard to think creativity when you're feeling empty. Like a balloon with air pouring out, deflated and flat at the end, I hung up the...
Executive Wisdom - The 8 Traps of High Achievers
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Jul, 2011
I was recently working with one of my San Francisco Bay Area executive coaching clients – the president of a professional services firm. We talked about how he was driven to achieve his goals and addicted to perfection. My executive coaching client and I discussed how it is more important to focus on success and fulfillment than perfection. I am coaching my client to overcome the eight traps of high achievers, and focus mor...

by Randy Enochs - Jul, 2011
Recently Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker signed the concealed weapon bill which allows residents 21 years and older to carry a concealed weapon – a handgun, electric weapon such as a taser, knife (other than a switchblade knife), and billy club – almost anywhere in the state, including most places of employment. Wisconsin will issue licenses to carry concealed weapons, subject to background check and training requirements. Sin...
Speak up or shut up – How do you make a graceful exit?
by Hallie Crawford - Jul, 2011
Remember a year ago when the JetBlue flight attendant jumped out of the plane on the inflatable escape slide…and by doing so how he made such a public spectacle of his unhappiness at work and reasons for leaving his job. I was reading about the departure of Richard “Chip” Lutton Jr. who’s been Apple’s chief patent officer who up to this moment, hasn’t cited reasons for his departure. What’s more appropriate? How do you k...
3 Ways to Leverage a Well-Earned Executive Reputation in Your Resume
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Jul, 2011
Spent the majority of your career building a successful operation or business, only to find that you’re now in the job market due to unforeseen circumstances? If your executive reputation has always carried you from job to job, it can be difficult to explain your stature to those outside your circle of influence. Many executives in these unprecedented times never even expected to need a resume, much less convey the magni...
7 Phrases to Strike From Your LinkedIn Profile
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Jul, 2011
An interesting practice seems to have cropped up among self-written social media profiles, where the phrases that have been taboo on resumes (like “self-motivated team player”) are creeping back into lists of job hunter credentials on LinkedIn. Unfortunately, these mundane, dry, and redundant phrases can make it difficult for you to maximize the power of LinkedIn as an executive job search tool. It’s also challenging for...
LinkedIn adds new sections targeted to students
by Miriam Salpeter - Jul, 2011
LinkedIn just launched a new initiative aimed at students, a group sometimes slow to join the growing professional network. Many students believe “LinkedIn isn’t ‘for’ them,” since they may not already have much professional experience and probably do not have large professional networks. Now, LinkedIn offers sections to allow college students to showcase their accomplishments, as reported on LinkedIn’s blog: Projects: It’s...
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. I have been trying to co-mingle value based information and actual job duties that I have done. When I do that it seems to create sort of a “laundry list” of my duties and I am trying to stay away from t...
