Winning at Working: Blurred Lines Require New Skills
by Nan S. Russell - Feb, 2015
Instead of an early start, with time to read the news, check key messages, and write uninterruptedly for a pending project, I spent it down a rabbit hole. What I expected was a five or ten minute interruption to answer a client’s email, marked with one of those urgent exclamation points, but it took me over an hour. Before I could even send the requested information, I got an email telling me, in essence, “never mind,” the dir...
What is Your Time Culture?
by Alexandra Levit - Feb, 2015
In her book The Culture Map, global workplace expert Erin Meyer talks about one particular keynote speech she had to give to an audience in Brazil. Her remarks were slated to last 60 minutes, but the client said she could take all the time she needed. Meyer didn’t quite believe him. After all, during just about any keynote address in America, you can expect a firm index card countdown: “10 minutes remaining” “5 min...

by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Feb, 2015

Is Your Fear Of Changing Jobs On This List?
by Stacey Lane - Feb, 2015
Let’s talk about the other F word. Fear. As you can probably imagine, there are days when I need a Teflon suit to deflect my clients’ fears. Even the most self-aware clients have moments of sheer panic. Fear shows up. It’s just part of careers. It’s that simple. On good days, I’m a curious and non-attached observer of fear. On bad days, I get sucked into the fear vortex and find myself obsessing about my own career success...
Being Busy Is Making You Sick: How to Recover as an Office Martyr
by Melody Wilding - Feb, 2015
Last week, I shared the concept of “office martyrdom” and explained why it’s an easy trap to fall into yet potentially very destructive. The office martyr considers themselves a victim, taking on extra work, staying late at the office, and giving nearly everything for their career, all the while complaining about the extra burden they supposedly have to bear. This can quickly turn into a vicious cycle of victimhood and alie...
Help! My Male Colleague Thinks I'm Too Emotional!
by Alexandra Levit - Feb, 2015
Here's my final DailyWorth.com question. Hope you all enjoyed this feature! "I called a senior-level manager to find out why one of my team members did not pass a board certification.

I said I was fine and asked another question, and th...

by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Feb, 2015
If you’ve ever struggled with perfectionism, you’re not alone. I’ve talked to countless women, through my coaching and travels, who’ve set the bar so high, in terms of their goals and aspirations, that they’re afraid to make any move at all. Author, Elizabeth Gilbert, calls perfectionism “…fear in really good shoes”. This fear that is perfectionism can often be traced back to early childhood messages – being valued purely f...
It’s My Prerogative
by Connie Pheiff - Feb, 2015
I’m working with a new client that reminded me our emotions could quickly and easily derail our goals. Mix your emotions together and you come up with a lethal cocktail. “There are four emotions sure to undermine our goals: fear, uncertainty, doubt, and shame.” ~Michael Hyatt Seasons of life change often. Each season of life brings new events. Such as job change, divorce, sickness, or something else. Our emotions a...
Stuck in lots of meetings? Make good use of that time.
by Beverly Jones - Feb, 2015
Sharon wanted the chance to lead a team. But Jenny, her mentor, warned that some senior colleagues felt she wasn't ready to be a manager. Sharon complained, "If I didn't have to waste so much time sitting in their useless meetings I could really show them what I can do." Jenny countered, "You can't get out of those meetings, so why not make better use of them? That's where people see you in action, so think of those se...
