In a research study conducted by Dr. David Kohl, professor emeritus at Virginia Tech, he discovered that 80% of Americans don’t have goals. Sixteen percent have goals, but don’t write them down. Three percent have goals, write them down, but don’t review them. Only one percent, the highest achievers, have goals, write them down and review them on an on-going basis. But do we really need to set goals to enjoy life? No, but...
When will your Ah-Ha! moment be?
by Hallie Crawford - Sep, 2011
I was had a career coaching call with my client Margaret a few weeks ago. When she got on the call she was on top of the moon! She had just conducted an informational interview with someone who owned his own law firm, which was one of the career paths she had been considering. The information she got from him, and what she learned validated her decision to move forward. He also gave her a lot of good things to consider in orde...
HOW DOES THAT WORK?
by Nan S. Russell - Sep, 2011
How would you respond to this question: "Are you one of the top 10% of performers in your company?" This question posed in a Business Week survey found that overall 90% of surveyed executives, middle managers, and employees from both large and small companies thought they were, indeed, in the top 10% of performers. I'm not a math major, but how does that work exactly? In my twenty years in management that wasn't my experien...
Managing Your Internal PR
by Joan Runnheim Olson - Sep, 2011
It’s important to manage your own PR within your organization. Consider conducting a quarterly review of the real players that influence your career. If you don’t have a list of those players, take a few minutes to generate one. Then every three months review this list which will most likely include your bosses, peers, subordinates and clients. “Bosses” are those people at a higher level who can influence your career, i.e., yo...

You’ve recently lost your management job and are frustrated with your apparent lack of progress in finding new work despite your best efforts to spend hours in front of your computer submitting resumes and applications to potential employers.

3 Simple Ways to Get More Feedback
by Lindsey Pollak - Aug, 2011
When I run training programs for companies on how to better manage their Generation Y talent, there is a certain complaint I hear over and over again: This generation wants too much feedback! According to many managers, Gen Y employees want feedback “on-demand”—they want to know how they’re doing after virtually every meeting, presentation, report, project or any other demonstration of their skills. Most Gen Ys don’t...

Do I Ever Think About You if We Aren’t Connected Online?
by Barbara Safani - Aug, 2011
My three closest friends don’t participate in any form of social or business networking. You’ll never find a business profile, status update, family photo, or even a poke from any of them on any online networking platform. While I ponder a “social media intervention” I continue to reach out to my friends on their terms which includes email and phone contact and an annual snail mail holiday card. I have to admit, it’s a lot mor...

Here are a few tips: Know yourself — know your leadership brand and what makes you different than other leaders in similar roles.

Are you looking in the right direction for your career?
by Miriam Salpeter - Aug, 2011
Last month, while walking in the magnificent Central Park in New York City, I saw a man taking a picture. As you can see in the photo I took of the man (to your right), it wasn’t that he was taking a picture that was striking, but HOW he was taking it — on his back, on the ground, pointing the lens up at the trees. His tripod (if that’s what you call it) covered his body like some sort of shield. Clearly, there was somethin...
