    Asking for a Pay Raise? These Tips Will Help You Negotiate the Salary You Deserve

    Asking for a pay raise from a manager is never easy, partly because it’s hard finding the right words and partly because it’s hard to gauge what the right amount to ask for is without under- or over-selling yourself. But unless you review how much you’re getting paid, you’ll never be in a situation where you’re paid your worth. (Click here to tweet this thought.) Having that conversation doesn’t have to be an ordeal as long as your approach is well-informed and justified. Here are six easy steps for negotiating the salary you deserve: 1. Do your research It’s important to know what the going rate is before you decide whether or not you’re being underpaid. Carry out job searches for similar roles…

    How to Get the Best Employees to Stick Around

    Get ready to say good-bye to some of your best talent this year.According to new RainmakerThinking research, employees are unhappier than ever and Founder Bruce Tulgan believes that it could lead to a “sudden spike” in turnover as the job market improves.In the words of Scooby Doo: Ruh-roh.Specifically, the survey finds that 46% of employees report that in the last year they’ve felt “stuck” in their jobs and have an unfulfilled desire to head for the exit. In addition, 90% say they’re less committed, are less productive and are less willing to “go the extra mile” or “contribute their best ideas,” Tulgan says.One of the biggest gripes by employees? Being required to do more work with less support and resources. They also…

    We’re excited to publish Mary’s next lesson in leadership – about influence! Influential leadership is one of the most important – and difficult to master – leadership skills any of us can hope to use. Mary provides some practical insights into how to become an influential leader. – InPower Editors I learned the art of influential leadership by participating in projects using Agile software development methodologies. Daily during a planning meeting (i.e., scrum), we would talk about what people were doing each day and what was a block. By openly talking about the blocks, I learned a key lesson: if you personally can’t move a block, you need to find a way to influence someone else how to do that. This was…

    How Reality TV Can Help You Better Promote Your Brand

    It’s OK to admit it. You’re not the only one. We’ve all fallen victim at some time or another to the mind-numbing hold that reality TV can place on us. “Did she really just say that?” “What on earth is he doing?” “Are you kidding me!? They’re about to eat that!” Millions of viewers around the globe have uttered these phrases from their couches, sucked into the vortex that is reality TV. Luckily, the hours you spent watching greased up guidos from Jersey were not in vain. (Click here to tweet this thought.)

    3 Easy Ways To Give Your Brain A Break During The Workday

    The eight-hour workday became the norm when the Ford Motor Company found that number resulted in maximum productivity at its factories, explains Jeff Stibel, an author and the CEO of Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp., in a recent LinkedIn post. But, the problem is, the human brain is not meant to focus on the same task for hours at a time. “The idea of an eight-hour day with a short lunch break is based on the most effective formula for physical labor, not mental work and certainly not creative mental work,” Stibel says. “Evidence shows that the brain cycles from highest attention to lowest attention approximately every 90 minutes. This suggests that you should hit the reset button about that often.” This…

    Foods that help you de-stress? Who knew?

    It's tax day and that might have some of you stressed out. But of course, we're always stressed. Last week, I spoke at a luncheon and asked how many people in the audience had experienced stress in the last week -- to the point where they said out loud, or in their heads, "I'm so stressed!" Almost everyone raised their hands. Including me. We have so many things that we're balancing that most of us feel close to the breaking point on any given day.  So, I read with interest an article in The Miami Herald this morning that said there are foods that contain nutrients that nourish the adrenal glands, which produce cortisol and adrenaline, our stress hormones.  Nutritionist/Dietician Sheah Rarback lists a…

    How James Patterson Sells More Books Than J.K. Rowling Or Stephen King

    According to Nielsen BookScan, James Patterson has sold more books in the past decade than any other writer — more than Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling or horror master Stephen King. To date, Patterson has sold 300 million copies of 130 novels worldwide.  Previously a creative director for the massive ad agency J. Walter Thompson, Patterson published his first novel in 1976. Though he now writes across genres, he started in thrillers. Patterson puts the turn into page-turner — quickly paced plots with short chapters, crisp sentences, and a gruesome murder here and there.  To allow for his outsize output, Patterson has shifted from the standard method of publishing, where one author writes a given book. Instead, he treats his Alex Cross, Women's Murder Club,…

    Wall Street CEO: Successful People I've Seen Share Two Traits

    After spending forty years on Wall Street building a global investment firm, Perella Weinberg, Joe Perella has seen people come and go. In an interview with financial career site OneWire, he shares what he thinks gives people real staying power — the power to build a successful business and brand in an incredibly competitive industry. “I think successful people work harder than the average person,” Perella says. “They’re all smart—there are a lot of smart people in this world that aren’t successful. Luck enters into it—I call it serendipity. But you make your luck by really working hard…beyond your maximum level.” Even more than that, Perella says, successful people don't have a maximum level. That is to say that they're always pushing for…

Fuel50 is their web-based SaaS solution that allows companies to deliver career engagement to every level of the business.

According to the 2013 Talentkeepers Global Talent and Retention Report, 65% of all organizations budget for engagement initiatives. Don’t get me wrong, engagement is important.

    How to Juggle a Full-Time Job AND a Successful Job Search

    We all the know the expression, “Looking for a job is a full-time job,” but what if you actually have a full-time job? Working 40+ hours a week while trying to lead a successful job search can be challenging to say the least. Here are four tips for juggling work and a grueling job search: 1. Make the time, and use it wisely I know it seems like there are not enough hours in the day, and that means something’s gotta give. Whether it’s giving up an hour of sleep, your Sunday brunch or your spin class, that time has to come from somewhere — but don’t worry; it’s only temporary.
