Do You Have a Personal Philosophy That Drives Your Life and Career?
by Dorothy Montgomery - Jun, 2014
On my desk at work is the philosophy of Charles Schultz, the creator of the “Peanuts” comic strip. I’ve had a love affair with the Peanuts cartoons, books and greeting cards for a long time now, so you’ll always find Charlie Brown and the Gang around my home and office. Did you know Charles Schultz struggled in his career? This cartoonist had every cartoon he submitted rejected by his high school yearbook staff. Even af...
The Poets, the Nerds, and the Suits
by Anthony Mills - May, 2014
In the ancient world, there were three roles of influence that tended to engage one another… the Prophets, the Priests, and the Kings. These three danced a tenuous dance… at times at great odds with one another, often over accountability matters, and at times in aid of one another. One might say that it was a love / hate relationship… one that at times ended with the Prophets losing their heads to the Kings (and the Priests ke...
Asking For What You Want
by Dorothy Montgomery - May, 2014
One of the things I always struggled with in corporate America is asking for what I want. Like many women I worked hard, kept my head down during numerous recessions, and endured 15--right sizings, down sizings and dress sizes too. I grew up with my mother’s attitude of “just be glad you’ve got a job” so I watched while others got promotions, and attained pay increases. I hoped that someone would figure out I was deserving...
Take It In, Let It Go
by Dorothy Montgomery - May, 2014
Recently I interviewed Eva Nelson a remarkable Talent Consultant for my internet radio show: Breaking the Glass Ceiling, Going Beyond Expectations. We talked about her career in corporate America and her lessons learned for breaking the glass ceiling. Eva shared this workplace tip, “don’t take things too seriously”. Eva’s point about not taking things too seriously is really about taking in and being opened to feedback an...

How to Lose a Job in 10 Days
by Mindy Thomas - Apr, 2014
I never cease to be amazed how the same people who can talk themselves into a new job can also walk themselves out of that very same job. First impressions may be important, but so are second ones! Following are eight fatal mistakes to avoid when you have a job offer signed, sealed, and delivered: 1. Showing up late for training. A millennial client of mine who just landed a job with a bank recently told me that 3 out...
Seven Trust-Diminishing Habits to Avoid at Work
by Nan S. Russell - Apr, 2014
When it comes to building or diminishing trust at work one thing is clear, there is no little stuff. Everything matters. That includes routine actions, casual habits, and how, what and to whom you communicate. Too often, the speed of work causes us to quickly craft a message or reply without awareness of its trust-diminishing or enhancing dynamics. But, you can improve your trust-building odds by eliminating common trust-di...
Toxic Work Environments
by Georgia Adamson - Apr, 2014
This isn’t the first time I’ve blogged about toxic work situations–including toxic bosses. However, it was prompted by a recent comment from a new client that was fairly disturbing. He indicated that even though he’d had a successful record over the past three years, he was very concerned about the situation in his company. Many people had quit, including his last two bosses, and a number of others had been fired. He...
Bored at work? Then do something!
by Beverly Jones - Mar, 2014
Boredom isn’t productive. So make some changes! As I waited in a Post Office line, I watched the clerk. She looked to be so deep into the doldrums that she could barely hear her customers. It seemed that, when she finally took in a request, she’d move in slow motion, lethargically searching through stacks of paper with her eyes half closed and her mouth half open. As the minutes ticked on, I became annoyed. T...
Why Entry-Level Hires Should Not Telecommute
by Alexandra Levit - Feb, 2014
Telecommuting is the future. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that about a quarter of employed Americans work from home some hours each week. In a recent study by the Families and Work Institute, 63 percent of employers said they allowed employees to work remotely in 2012, up from 34 percent in 2005. Even Marissa Mayer, the new Yahoo! CEO who banished telecommuting from company policy last year, can’t stop this t...
