  • 2 Big Opportunities for Incredible Change!
    by Marshall Goldsmith - June 28, 2017
    Recently, I had the opportunity to do an online session with my friend Ben Croft for the WBECS 2017 Summit. Ben is president of the World Business and Executive Coach Summit and founder of Ethical Coach and he asked me to talk about my pay it forward project 100 Coaches. I jumped at the chance to do this and I am excited to share the video webinar with you in this week’s blog. In the webinar Ben and I talk about two w...
  • How To Land Your Dream Job: Take Proactive Control
    by Michelle Dumas - June 28, 2017
    You're having that dream again. You know, the one where you forgot about your job interview and you're not prepared in the slightest. You've shown up wearing faded pajamas and fuzzy slippers, and to your horror, your resume is written in purple crayon. Don't panic. As challenging as your job search is, it's unlikely that even your worst interview will measure up to this nightmare. But it does open the...
  • New Ways of Managing Time
    by Carole Kanchier - June 28, 2017
    Are you always jamming your schedule, feel you can't waste a second? Do you allow the clock to manage you? Or, do you feel comfortable trusting your intuition to guide your time? To better manage time, we set priorities and schedule our days and months. But we often still feel pressured, lack total control. The conventional approach to managing time was appropriate for the Industrial-Age, but is this effective in th...
  • 5 Core Reasons People Resist Facing Reality Instead Of Changing It
    by Kathy Caprino - June 27, 2017
    In talking this week with a friend with an extremely narcissistic spouse, something became even clearer to me than ever before: When we're in an unhealthy, manipulative or demeaning relationship or situation but keep saying to ourselves 'I can't believe this is happening to me!” we keep ourselves stuck in pain and victimization. Our disbelief and/or resistance to the situation prevent us from taking the brave act...
  • Working Hard And Being Eager Don't Cut It Anymore
    by Debra Wheatman - June 27, 2017
    I recently had a very telling conversation. I was speaking with a man at a networking event. Let’s call him David, for the sake of this story. David regaled me with the story of his professional life. He graduated from an Ivy League university in the late 1970s, with a bachelor’s degree in philosophy. Upon graduation, he moved to New York to pursue his dream of becoming an accomplished stage actor. As expected, rol...
  • Are You a Multiplier or a Diminisher?
    by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - June 26, 2017
    From academia to the non-profit arena, as well as the corporate world-of-work, I have had many clients who complained about bosses who were ineffective leaders. Were their leaders intelligent and talented people? Yes. But, were they able to lead a team, motivate others, and empower success in their colleagues? No! I have come to believe that while some leaders are born, most are developed and our current professional market...
  • How To Leap Into Extreme Leadership
    by Steve Farber - June 26, 2017
    The world is full of people who call themselves leaders, but woefully short of Extreme Leaders. Perhaps you think that’s OK. Extreme Leaders, you might reason, are only needed for extreme circumstances – a soldier taking fellow troops into battle, a Sherpa guiding climbers up Mount Everest, or a quarterback directing a potential game-winning drive in the Super Bowl. Everyday life, you might say, requires only every...
  • Good Business Etiquette Can Pay Off
    by Carole Kanchier - June 22, 2017
    At a recent business luncheon one of the guests blew his nose in his napkin. Another guest wore jeans and a sheer blouse. Are these appropriate business behaviors? Do you practice such basic courtesies as returning messages promptly, and greeting people when they enter your office? Does your organization have uniform policies regarding emails, punctuality, and kitchen use? Good manners are good business. Many potential...
  • The Trap of Non-Specific Feedback As a Replacement For Coaching
    by Kris Dunn - June 22, 2017
    If you look around long enough in your life - especially if you have kids - you'll see a pattern emerge. People are trying to coach others as much as they can, but they default to non-specific feedback that is unhelpful at best and counter-productive at worst. Want some examples? Sweet! Here you go: 'Try Harder' 'You Just Need To Work More' 'Focus' 'Be Patient' 'Give Them What They Want' Read that...
  • How to Build True Friendships in the Business World
    by Steve Farber - June 21, 2017
    Heshie Segal is my friend. I don’t mean that as a disclaimer, but as a prime example of what you’re about to learn from her. British anthropologist Robin Dunbar famously estimated that humans can maintain a social circle of no more than 150 people, with no more than five people in our “closest layer” of friends. For entrepreneurs who depend on networks of relationships, that might seem a bit disco...
