Got Ideas? Become a Thought-Leader. Oprah Did.
by Dawn Lennon - Jun, 2011
Ideas have extraordinary power. They're the basis of the opinions, principles, and convictions that drive us. They underpin the plans we make and actions we take. The more universal the idea, the more promise it evokes, and the more compelling the spokesperson, the more likely we are to adopt it. You don't have to be a big shot to have valuable ideas. You just need a following of colleagues who think your ideas have me...

Predictions about the Future of Gen Y at Work
by Lindsey Pollak - Jun, 2011
As another cohort of young professionals enters the workforce this graduation season, I’ve been pleased to see some more positive articles about Generation Y appearing in the media. Sure, the members of this generation are still young and have a lot to learn, but, these articles assert, maybe they’re not as “entitled” and “coddled” as older generations feared. Finally some good press for today’s twentysomethings! I’ve be...
Want to Serve on a Non-Profit Board? Put Your Business Hat On.
by Dawn Lennon - Jun, 2011
It lifts us up when we do "good" for others: Help our neighbor, donate money to charity, volunteer at an event, or serve on a non-profit board. Non-profit board positions are platforms from which we can lead, engage support, and help more people. Some people "collect" board appointments to look important and influential. Others can't get beyond operational details to focus on the long-term. Many are so uncomfortable wi...
Rattle The Cage in Your Career Transition
by Hallie Crawford - Jun, 2011
In my career coaching I use the concept of Gremlins with my coaching clients to help them define and begin to overcome their fears, negative thoughts or obstacles about making a career change. The concept comes from a book I highly recommend called Taming Your Gremlin by Rick Carson. I’ve found over the years is that when your fears intensify, it can be a good thing because it means you are making change. You are doing some...

Career Advice: Should you lie to your boss?
by Hallie Crawford - May, 2011
One of my career coaching clients, Robert, recently was wondering if he should tell his boss how unhappy he was at work.

Almost all of my clients deal with this question. I will give you the same advice that I gave James. Being up front about your discontent at your job rea...
