    Balancing Teamwork and Individual Recognition

    January 4th, 2012 1 Comment

    In today’s workplace, there is an ever-increasing emphasis on teamwork. However, the economy is harsh and competition is fierce. In many companies where job seniority is not a factor, the system is set up to compare employees against one another. Ranking sessions determine your bonuses, salaries, promotions – or even whether you’ll keep your job. It is no longer adequate to just do your job well, or even very well. But how do you stand out as an individual contributor,

    We are continually reminded that relationships drive business. Building relationships brings us customers, building relationships leads us to new job opportunities. A crazy thing I’ve always told my job search clients is that if they play golf, they should play a lot of golf during job search. They are thrilled that it is really a job search activity. I even had a client who barely finished his resume before he was offered a job through a friend of a friend


    Listen, Think, Exchange Thoughts and Be Heard!

    Many of us have been through a job search in the last few years. There are so many issues to deal with in career transition, not the least of which is what to do next? Go after the same sort of job? Does that job still exist? Even if I manage to land a similar job by some good fortune, will it exist for long or for long enough? How long is long enough? Do I still like the work?

    By January 23, 2010, Toyota, the world’s biggest automaker had recalled a total of 9.0 million vehicles after defects came to light, resulting in sudden unintended acceleration (SUA) of Toyota vehicles, allegedly causing 37 deaths. Three major recalls of Toyota vehicles were triggered by (1) accelerator pedals trapped by floor mats, (2) accelerator pedals with poor design problems causing them to stick, and (3) Prius brake problems.

    “Race to Nowhere”, the Movie by Vicki Abeles

    February 14th, 2011 No Comments

    This was a very sobering and thought provoking movie, as it was meant to be. This documentary systematically demonstrates that education these days is no longer about learning. It is more of a system where teachers are required to teach to the test, and performance is a check-off list. Creative thought is not encouraged in our schools. When I think of the skills valued in our workplaces; I think of  critical thinking, creativity, problem solving, and curiosity. I also think

Taking a risk implies the possibility of partial or complete failure. So how can we decide what risks to take, and how can we encourage the identification of those risks and the willingness to go forward with them, i.e., institute a culture of risk-taking? One of the most important factors in encouraging risk-taking is the “freedom to


    The Art of Talking Small

    As we are out and about meeting people and building our networks, there is often a need for a bit of small talk to start off our conversations. If you are stuck for something to say to break the ice, here is an acronym that I remember to work off of. Think of the word CHAT and use that to help you ask a question to begin the dialog. C – Career What do you do for a living? What
