Respondents were asked to rate their own resumes; they were given the following choices: 1. Below average 2. Average 3. Pretty good 4. Perfect This is what we found... More than half of the people (56%) selected average, in other words more than half of the respondents felt their resume was OK. Let...
Three Keys to Time Management: Prioritize, Decide, Set Boundaries
by Tai Goodwin - Feb, 2010
How often have you said, “If I only had more time, ” or, “I wish there were more hours in the day.” We say that often intending to imply that if we only had more time then we would get the rest we need or slow down to a more normal pace. But chances are that if we did have more hours in the day, we would immediately fill them up with more things to do instead of creating the space we need to take a much needed break. We don...
We’re All Connected Somehow...
by Dawn Bugni - Feb, 2010
I was going to title this, “It’s a small world after all”, but then “that song” would be stuck in our heads all day and I didn’t want to do that to us. I’m reading Malcolm Gladwell’s The Tipping Point. In it he recounts Stanley Milgram’s small world experiment, the original study about six-degrees of separation. (Which of course lead to the Kevin Bacon’s six degrees of separation game...but I digress.) This experiment real...
How About A Heads Up?
by Nan S. Russell - Feb, 2010
It didn't take long while on safari in Botswana, to begin to recognize the animal calls heralding a predator roaming in the area. What intrigued me was the pass-along path those calls took, from animal group to animal group. The shrieks of baboons, the trumpeting of elephants, the screams of francolins, the cries of impalas were picked up by adjacent animals and sent out for as long as the threat remained. In that predator-...

Don't Be Mr. or Ms. Negative
by Debra Wheatman - Feb, 2010
You have met them; you have been annoyed by them; you may have suffered because of them. They are the folks that always find problems; they tell you why it won't work; they always have an excuse for something that hasn't even happened yet and might never happen at all. These folks just bring down the energy of the room when they walk in the door. • They complain about the free food and drinks the company or coworkers pro...
