How to Be a Better Boss
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Mar, 2011
Ninety percent of us work for someone else, regardless of our seniority or status. As with great works of art, we have learned to recognize good bosses when we see them, but their specific qualities may prove difficult to define. The word “boss” is often used interchangeably with “leader,” “manager” or “supervisor,” and it conjures up memories of the good, the bad and the ugly ones we’ve endured throughout our careers. The...
Killer Bosses are Worse than Killer Bees
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Mar, 2011
Most of us can tell horror stories about the boss from hell. He or she might have been a micro-manager or so work-driven that employees didn’t have a life. The boss was unhappy and took out his/her frustration on employees. Bad bosses can be more destructive than those nasty “Killer Bees”. Killer Bosses Stanford University management professor Robert I. Sutton, PhD, author of the New York Times bestseller The No Asshole Rul...
The Trust Voucher
by Steve Farber - Mar, 2011
Unfortunately, the word “empowerment” has, for many, become nothing more than a tired, old cliche–something that I’ve been teasing people about for years. Even though the value of empowerment is, ostensibly, conventional wisdom by now, it’s still the rare leader that does it and does it well. Most get caught up in a faulty, self-sabotaging thought process that goes something like this: Empowerment = I give them control =...

by Valerie Sokolosky - Mar, 2011
“What we can do – what America does better than anyone – is spark the creativity and imagination of our people. We are the nation that put cars in driveways and computers in offices; the nation of Edison and the Wright brothers; of Google and Facebook. In America, innovation doesn’t just change our lives. It’s how we make a living.” ~ President Barack Obama, State of the Union Address 2011 Those are some big shoes to fil...
Don’t Be A Negative Nellie – It Doesn’t Help
by Hallie Crawford - Mar, 2011
We’ve all been through tough times; whether they’re related to our careers or even our personal lives. We commonly hear people giving advice with things like, “You just have to stay positive….” or “Keep a positive attitude…”. When all you really hear is “Blah blah blah”. Sometimes when we hear this advice, all we want to do is tell them to go pound sand. I understand these feelings because I’ve been there too. There are day...
Focus doesn’t mean you can’t be multifaceted
by Dawn Bugni - Mar, 2011
A resume client recently asked for some guidance in making a decision. He had several career paths he could travel. As with many job seekers I meet, he wanted to carry all his “luggage” down each path; placing equal weight on his entire skills set for each opportunity. I explained how an “I can do anything and everything” approach would not work in this market. I told him his message had to be tailored to speak to a potenti...
How to Re-think your job search
by Miriam Salpeter - Mar, 2011
If you’ve been looking for a job unsuccessfully for a long time, you are not alone. However, just because you haven’t landed yet doesn’t mean a job isn’t just around the corner. One adage that is true for job seekers? If you’ve been doing the same thing, over and over again without achieving the results you want — it’s time to try some new things! This month, the Career Collective (a community I co-coordinate with my collea...
