Building Trust Means First Setting Clear Expectations
by Dee McCrorey - Jan, 2010
"I don't feel that my team members have my back," one of my coaching clients, "Merrall", said leaning forward in her chair during our Skype call. Watching her posture and expression on the video screen, I could see her frustration with the current situation. "What does having your back look like?" I asked. "It means giving me a heads up about situations that could bite me in the backside when I least expect it." Le...
Skirting Around Risk Taking - Why Giving Voice to the Word Matters
by Dee McCrorey - Jan, 2010
I read the Harvard Business Review blog article "How Do Innovators Think?" with its focus on "inquisitiveness". A great attribute to have, indeed, and one that speaks to someone's curious nature. But as the authors discovered, inquisitiveness on its own doesn't always translate into action. And without action, curiosity is just another nine-letter word that never moves anyone to innovate. The six-year study surveying 3,000 ...
Stop Bad Career Habits
by Elizabeth Freedman - Jan, 2010
If 2010 is going to be your year, then get serious about fixing bad career and workplace habits that are dragging you down. Here are a few to think about: Bad Career Habit #1: Not Networking Let’s agree on one point – most of us would rather pull out our eyelashes than network. If you’re a networking champ, then skip this paragraph. Otherwise, consider the fact that one of the reasons you may avoid networking is si...
Layoffs Inflict Collateral Damage On Friends and Family
by Ramon Greenwood - Jan, 2010
The news media rarely skip a day in reporting the grim economic news and calculating the number of jobs lost in the United States since the recession started in December, 2007. But those reports do not take into full account the collateral damage caused among family, friends and co-workers of those who have lost their jobs. Survivors of the axe have to deal with a variety of emotions: mourning over those who have been ...
Workplace Communication Trends for 2010
by Suzanne Bates - Jan, 2010
I’ve been scanning the internet for 2010 workplace predictions and it’s got me thinking about how all these trends are going to change the way we communicate. It’s my birthday - and I remember when you needed a carbon copier between two sheets of paper in a typewriter to make two copies of my television scripts. Since I’m going out on a limb with predictions I’ll expect someone to haul these out next year and see whether I w...
Online Resume Help - What Not to Include?
by Joshua Waldman - Jan, 2010
Hi Joshua, I’ve been working at a high-end boutique in SoHo for about a year now while still trying to apply for corporate jobs. Should I put this retail sales (fashion) position in my profile at all? I’ve been told my having a retail job on my resume might jeopardize my career path. I’m a Communications major (1992) and have worked in sales/marketing in the past. I’m working on towards a marketing certificate at NYU’s S...

Thou Shall Not Slander
by Alexandra Levit - Jan, 2010
In the last few months, I have spotted no fewer than three examples of one person in our social networking community slandering another person in our social networking community. I use the word slander, although technically it's more like libel because the articles are written by bloggers who are read by thousands. I am not going to tell you who they are because A) I will not stoop to their level and B) that would send even ...
Making A Fresh Start
by Nan S. Russell - Jan, 2010
"How could that be?" I muttered silently as I reread the message. This was not a person I wanted to encounter as I returned from a holiday vacation filled with family, friends, and fun. And yet, there he was on my calendar. My first meeting of the New Year was scheduled with my nemesis. I wish I could tell you it was a good meeting, but it wasn't. I got exactly the difficult, irritating, frustrating event I expected. Now ye...
How Many Pages Should My Résumé Be?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jan, 2010
This has to be one of the most common questions we hear as professional résumé writers. My answer to our clients is that one size does not fit all. Traditionally, résumés are one, two and three pages. (In some industries and countries more than three pages are acceptable, even expected!). While I don’t have a concrete answer I’ll provide you with the information you need to decide which length works best for you. What works...
