    Stanford Tops The List Of The Best Business Schools For Getting Rich

    Plenty of young people tried to wait out the recession in graduate school, and if they attended a top MBA program, that turned out to be a pretty good choice. Students who graduated from top b-schools in 2010 have seen their salaries double, according to The Financial Times. Of course, those students attended the top 100 MBA programs in the world, which represent a tiny subset (less than 1%) of all MBA degrees awarded. But it's an indication of the extraordinary earning power a top degree still affords. In its annual ranking of international business schools, in which Harvard comes out first and Stanford second, the FT also ranks schools by the average salary of their alumni three years after they graduate.…

    Why you need to make time to tweet

    If you're not making the time for social media...here's why you should be. Tweet success: Small businesses turn to social media marketing to build brands   REACHING OUT TO MOMS: Joanne Vivero, left, owner of R & J Baby in Doral, with Marirose Mardeni, R&J’s vice president. THE MIAMI HERALD BY CINDY KRISCHER GOODMAN It's mid-morning and Michael Mendez snaps a photo of the new beer he has just stocked in his convenience store. Within minutes, he posts it on Twitter to his 7,000 followers. If the response is typical, customers will stream in by late afternoon, asking for the rare brew. Mendez strategically has branded his four Miami-area fuel stations as much more than places for a fill-up. Using Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, he has created buzz…

    3 Ways to Handle Being Blindsided at Work

    With 20+ years as a corporate outplacement professional, I’ve seen them all. Being blindsided at work is the ultimate ugly, cowardly way for a company to decide they no longer need you. They will walk in your office, shut the door, sit down and with a sincere face (that ‘s not really sincere) tell you they’re sorry, but your employment with them ends immediately. Or they may call you into an office and tell you the same words. The rest of the plan follows: They walk you to the door, past your colleagues and then after you’ve gone home, box-up your personal items to be delivered by a courier. That’s the reality. Here are the guide lines for how you should…

    Research Says: We Need More Working Women

    Study:  The Business Benefits of Gender Diversity and Working Women on the Front Lines (Gallup, Badal, 2014) Finding: The study of more than 800 business units from two companies representing two different industries — retail and hospitality — finds that gender-diverse business units have better financial outcomes than those dominated by one gender.

    23 CEOs To Watch In 2014

    After what some would call a "lost year for tech," which also saw once-great American retailers fall from grace, we're thinking of 2014 as a glass-half-full kind of year. Apple CEO Tim Cook has promised big reveals, including the launch of the iWatch. Google's Larry Page will likely continue to explore the "Internet of Things," scooping up start-ups along the way. And there's really no telling what's up Elon Musk's sleeve. Other companies will need saving, such as Eddie Lampert's Sears, which shuttered hundreds of stores and had net losses as high as $1.4 billion last year. These 23 CEOs are leading companies on the brink of greatness, or extinction, and will be the ones to watch this year. Disclosure: Jeff Bezos is an investor in Business Insider through his…

    Voice of Experience: Yvonne Downs, COO Futures Division, Jefferies & Co., Inc.

    This week The Glass Hammer is profiling successful women in the derivatives industry. By Tina Vasquez, Managing Editor Yvonne Downs is COO of Jefferies LLC futures division, though her 30-year long career in the futures industry began after she graduated from college and began looking for a job in accounting/finance. “A friend suggested I consider joining the Chicago Board of Trade in their compliance department auditing firms who were users of the futures markets. I went to the interview and found that it was a fast-paced business that was in a constant state of change. I was hooked immediately,” Downs said. The COO says that when she entered the industry, it required making decisions quickly, having a deep knowledge of the intricacies of business…

    Career Management: Top 10 Career Limiting Moves

    Good career management is a key factor in success. If you’re reading this, you probably don’t need to worry too much about bad decision making or judgment. Most of the time, people who amble through life are barely making it, and give as much “thought time” to their behavior as a cow does. Nevertheless, it’s good to occasionally think about this issue before you seriously trash your future. I would point out that there are things that don’t show up on this list, like leaving the microphone on while you discuss top secret information, simply because they are so rare. Career Management: Top 10 Career Limiting Moves This list is all about the CLM’s (Career Limiting Moves) that are most common. 1. Lack Of Real…

    How To Stand Out At A New Job (And Fit In Too)

    You got the job! You’re ready to begin and excited to get started. Here are a few tips to make sure you start your new job on the right foot. Understand The Culture First, take time to get to know the culture of your new company. The best way to do this is to schedule meetings with your team – both those who will be working for you and with you. Ask them questions about how they get their work accomplished and how easy or difficult it is to implement new ideas and initiatives. This will give you a good feel for how adaptable (or how slow) the company culture is to change. Identify Key Stakeholders Next, find out who the key stakeholders are for…

    How to Deal with Difficult People

    One of the great lessons I learned in life was to stop focusing on other people and to focus on what I could change about me. I only wish it had happened twenty years earlier. I especially wish I knew how to deal with difficult people in my life. I have made every mistake in the book and then some; but after all those mistakes and writing hundreds of articles about resolving conflict in the workplace, dealing with bullies, and trying to improve the health and wellness of the modern workplace, I finally got it. There are some common characteristics of difficult people but every single difficult person that we encounter is different. That makes it harder to prescribe a simple remedy…

    The benefits of getting a sales certification

    Getting a certification in sales is an opportunity to distinguish yourself among others in this competitive industry. Many people go through their life with one sales job, one sale at a time, but for those who want to make a career out of it and be the best they can be, a sales certification course might be just the thing to take them to the next level. Currently, a number of certification courses and certificate programs exist. To find the best course or program for you, look for credibility, accessibility and reliability. Certifications offer an immediate return in the form of increased sales and credibility, as well as a long-term return in the form of new and better habits, ultimately leading to…

    Changing a Toxic Work Culture – Ask HR Bartender

    With all the talk about employee disengagement and 2014 being the year of the employee, this reader question really hits home. I’m an HR Specialist (only three years in the industry, and I love it). Since I’m so low on the totem pole, I am usually not taken seriously when I discuss our company’s low morale and toxic work environment. More than one-third of our staff have expressed their concerns to me. My immediate boss (the Director of Human Resources) is completely gung ho about the ideas I have discussed with him, but when we take them to Company President, we are completely shot down. I feel completely powerless, and as there is absolutely NO regard for the employees and their well-being.…

    Two Steps to Living the Life of Your Dreams

    Photo by Alan Cleaver By Michael Connell “Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.” – Wayne Dyer “How do you do it?” He asked. I was at a party and this guy had just heard I was a stand-up comedian. Like a lot of people I meet he wanted to know how I’m able to make a living in a notoriously difficult field like stand-up comedy. A lot of people have a passion – something they’d love to do with their life. They want to be a painter, or a musician, or travel the world. But they put off these dreams because they seem impractical. When they find out I’m following my passion they want to know my secret.…

    Five traits of high earners that will make you not want to be one

    I am in the car about forty hours a week. I hired a driver. She won’t drive all they times I have to drive. Of course she won’t. Her life would suck. It doesn’t matter. I have to be in the car for so much anyway. I can’t ditch my son’s therapy appointments. I need to be there to say, “Of course nose picking is like cutting.” I’m an expert on cutting. Digging out eyebrow hairs so they bleed or tearing cuticles so they hurt all day. I need to be there to translate for the therapist the world of comfort through pain. And the kids can’t learn their instruments if I’m not with them for lessons. Suzuki is about the parent being a fucking…

So, you’ve just been promoted or taken on a new leadership role in a new department or company. The excitement can quickly wear off when you realize that suddenly, things are not going as smoothly as they used to.
