  Any Road Will (Not) Do: 6 Tips for Successful Career Management
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2012
One variation of the saying goes, “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will do.” Or, as another puts it, “If you don’t know where you’re going, you’re likely to wind up somewhere else.” When applied to establishing a successful career, not knowing where you’re headed or how you’re going to get there spells trouble with a capital T. Sometimes people luck-out and easily get what seems like a good job early in life...
 
  Discrimination: How to Handle It
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2012
It’s Illegal—and It Happens Laws have been passed to make employment discrimination based on numerous factors—such as race, religion and age—illegal. Those laws have been around for a while now, and no company can claim ignorance as an excuse. But discrimination happens—sometimes because of poor training, but too often because companies have gotten sophisticated about how they do it. One of the most common concerns rela...
 
  Find the Courage to Leap To a Great New Career
by Deborah Brown-Volkman - Nov, 2012
It takes courage to pursue a career you're passionate about when you're already immersed in one you dislike. When I started my first marketing job in Manhattan in the early 1980s, I loved the pace, big-city excitement and the high salary I was earning. I excelled at my job. Wall Street was booming. As my career progressed, I ran sales and marketing programs for large and small companies. But gradually I began to feel as th...
 
  How To Become Memorable
by Deborah Brown-Volkman - Nov, 2012
What do you want to be remembered for? Think about a few top executives whom you admire. Ask yourself what makes them memorable. It’s likely you can think of specific qualities, expertise or accomplishments for each. Now, think about your own career. What are you admired for? As an executive, you have already accomplished a great deal in your career. But not every executive is influential within their own industry or hi...
 
  Pitfalls of Career Typecasting
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2012
Avoid Career Typecasting You may have heard the term typecasting in relation to actors, who sometimes get pigeon-holed for a certain type of role and find it difficult, if not impossible, to land other types of roles. For example, someone who has always done comedy might face rejection from film companies that are casting for a drama or action-adventure movie. What does this have to do with careers? It's not uncommon fo...
 
  Plan to Succeed
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2012
Whether you’re an entrepreneur, business manager or employee—or currently unemployed—you need a plan in order to achieve your goals. As the saying goes, “Failure to plan means planning to fail.” That’s not to say that plans are carved in granite and can’t be changed. In the chaotic situation that affects most of the world today—from the global view down to issues faced by our own local communities—change and unpredictabili...
 
  Six Tips for Fessing Up to Your Mistakes
by Deborah Brown-Volkman - Nov, 2012
It happens to the best of us: We make mistakes. Whether it is blowing a crucial deadline, mismanaging a project, missing an important meeting or copying one’s boss on an unflattering e-mail, we have our blunders, and sometimes we get called to the carpet for them. It's no wonder we make mistakes. Today’s stressful workplace expects perfection. This quarter’s numbers have to exceed last quarter’s numbers. Market share has t...

by Miriam Salpeter - Nov, 2012
News of events related to the scandal involving General David Patraeus and his affair with his biographer Paula Broadwell reminds us that even the powerful and successful succumb to poor professional judgment. What’s one important lesson for “regular people” to learn? It appears as if inappropriate emails created a paper trail that led to this story breaking in the news. Some agencies reported that Patraeus and Broadwell might...
 
  Should I Hire a Career Coach?
by Alexandra Levit - Nov, 2012
From humankind’s earliest days, mentors and coaches have been a significant ingredient in the careers of many accomplished individuals. As they reported in Fast Company in 2006, Jim Bolt and Brian Underhill conducted a study that found that 56 percent of surveyed companies emphasized coaching as a major learning method, and two years later, 51 percent of the same organizations said that the use of coaching had increased....
 
  10 Tips To Survive A New Boss
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Nov, 2012
It has been said there is but one constant, and that is change. Some live for it, while others fight it tooth and nail. Change can be at once exciting and frightening. Amazing how often those two words interconnect, isn’t it? When that change involves a new supervisor, don’t fret.
