  • Sometimes Great Teammates Decide To Let Co-Workers Live With The Consequences of Stupid Decisions
    by Kris Dunn - September 6, 2017
    Sometime after your first year with your company, you start to settle in. All the onboarding is complete, the honeymoon is over and you've accurately assessed your job as a mix of positives and negatives. If you're still there and not on the market after a year, that generally means you're content. Hopefully you're learning and things are starting to click related to your role and how you can have success....
  • Weird In A World That's Not: A Q&A With Author Jennifer Romolini
    by Lindsey Pollak - September 6, 2017
    Read the original post on Lindsey's blog. She had me at “weird.” I couldn’t wait to dig into Jennifer Romolini’s brand new book, Weird In a World That’s Not: A Career Guide for Misfits, F*ckups, and Failures. After all, who among us hasn’t at some point felt totally out of place, especially in a work setting? I recently had the opportunity to chat with Jennifer about how the book c...

    by Lindsey Pollak - September 1, 2017
    Read the original post on Lindsey's blog. We’ve all heard so many myths about millennials. And, of course, they’re mostly super negative.

  • Nag, Nag, Nag
    by Sherri Edwards - September 1, 2017
    A recent discussion prompted a deeper look into nagging and/or micromanaging. Both behaviors have negative connotations, although each may actually be necessary due to someone else’s unresponsiveness or bad behavior. So why do the naggers get the bad rap while the people who prompt it continue on as if they aren’t part of the problem? Let’s start with an analysis of one the problems. There seem to be diffe...
  • Can You Take A Risk?
    by Carole Kanchier - August 31, 2017
    Most successful people have learned to risk. The good feelings that result from taking a risk can be incredible. You see yourself as a survivor.

    by Lindsey Pollak - August 29, 2017
    Read the original post on Lindsey's blog. Is there anything more satisfying than checking things off of a to-do list? I didn’t used to think so.

    by Kathy Caprino - August 29, 2017
    Every day, I hear from professionals who desperately want to change their careers. They typically have at least one or a combination of these key reasons for desiring change: - They have stopped finding any value, meaning or enjoyment in their work - Their work, colleagues, or environment have become toxic, exhausting and negatively impactful - They no longer feel well-suited to the work they do day in and day out...

    by Marshall Goldsmith - August 28, 2017
    In our book Lifestorming, Alan Weiss and I discuss that one of the most important elements in life’s journey is granting ourselves permission.
