    3 Things Startup CEOs Can Learn From Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson

    This Sunday, over 110 million Americans are expected to tune in to watch a 6'5", 250-lb. passing legend duke it out against a 5'11", late-pick upstart. Experts are divided over the outcome, but most agree it will be a pretty fantastic game to watch. For the executives and entrepreneurs in the stands, it will also be a great opportunity to see two completely different leadership styles in action. The current Super Bowl storyline getting attention in the press is the match-up between Peyton Manning — arguably one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game — and the Seahawk's defense, ranked first in the league in nearly every category.  But according to former NFL quarterback Tom Flick, the real wildcard in this year's Super…

    5 Kinds Of Brilliance You Didn't Know You Could Have

    Do you think of yourself as brilliant? You know you’re different than everyone else in some way, but you’ve had a hard time putting your finger on it. And it’s not that you’ve got the kind of brain that publishes the next bestseller, drafts a peace agreement, discovers a particle or finds the largest prime number. People think about intelligence in many ways. There’s that supposedly objective measure called IQ. And there’s the theory of multiple intelligences — the idea that several different types of intelligence (including musical, visual, verbal, etc.) exist rather than a single generalized cognitive ability. And there’s wisdom, usually acquired through experience. Brilliance is a certain kind of personality that sees humor where others don’t, tragedy where others are…

    What Drives Us to Be Workaholics (Even If We Hate Our Jobs)

    We as a society tend to work ourselves too hard. How many people do you know who’ve dragged themselves into work with the flu, checked business email on vacation or even put off taking a vacation to put in more hours? You may be guilty of this yourself. Whether you love your job or it’s just a paycheck, chances are you’ve felt the pressure of our collective drive to work harder and longer and to put our careers before other parts of your life. But what is it that drives us to be workaholics? According to a recent article by Dorie Clark on Harvard Business Review, the answer is manifold. Whether it’s fear of the competition, a desire to impress others or…

    The 13 Top-Paying Cities In America For Tech Workers

    Silicon Valley isn't the only place where prospects in tech are booming. Average salaries of tech workers topped $90,000 in 13 cities across America last year, according to a new report from jobs database Dice.com. Meanwhile, the average salary for tech workers nationwide rose to $87,811 in 2013, an increase of more than $2,000 from the previous year. "All companies are becoming tech companies," says Shravan Goli, president of Dice, which analyzed responses from more than 17,000 employed tech professionals in its latest report. "Industries like retail, commerce, or even publishing are all investing in technology and looking to create that competitive edge by taking advantage of the data that's in front of them." Not surprisingly, Silicon Valley remains the most prosperous metropolitan…

    10 Inspirational Quotes for Women (& Men!) for 2014

    We thought we’d round out this first month of 2014 with some great quotes for women – and men! – for the year ahead. Emily has a way of getting right to the point. Happy 2014 (for the last time!) – InPower Editors Twelve years ago my then-fiancé (now husband) was transferred to South Carolina. This of course meant I was being transferred too. It was a tough move away from family, friends, and a job I loved, but the impact was softened a bit by a gift from my boss (and future coauthor) Skip Lineberg. On my last day at work, after the obligatory cake and “best wishes” card from the team, he gave me something I still cherish all these years later. It…

    5 Things You Should Do In Your Last Semester Of College To Prepare For The Real World

    Colleges and universities across the U.S. are entering the final 100 days of their academic calendar this week, and for many seniors this can only mean one thing: It's officially time to panic. While a lucky few receive job offers at the end of their junior summer internships, the vast majority will begin their last semester of college without a post-graduation plan. According to a 2013 Accenture poll, only 39% of the classes of 2011 and 2012 had jobs lined up by the time they graduated; for 2013, just 16% had job offers a month before their commencement. Thanks to recent job gains and record highs in the stock market, however, those numbers have a good chance of turning around this year. The…

    Through Her Death I Learned to Live

    Photo by Casey Muir-Taylor By Robyn Adams It was Christmas Day 2011. A day that my life changed. Forever. It started out as any ordinary Christmas Day. The only difference was I wasn’t bringing anything to the Christmas family dinner that day. By request. My son and I were getting over the stomach flu and really….no one wanted to eat anything we had to offer. I had to chuckle to myself. Great timing on my part! We piled our 2 boys (ages 5 & 7) into the car and drove the 20 minutes to my mother-in-law’s house. Just like any other Christmas. Our kids were bubbling with excitement over the gift exchange. I secretly wondered what my stomach could handle after my stomach could handle after…

    3 Tips To Be Healthier At Work

    Looking for ways to keep yourself fitter at work? Office design company turnstone recently teamed up with Jamie Russo, chief of work and wellness at co-working space Enerspace, to find out how employees can incorporate health and fitness goals into their work days. The advice ranges from changing your desk chair to taking more walks throughout the day — basically anything you can do to enhance your normal movements. Here are a few strategies that Russo uses to stay healthy that anyone could benefit from. 1. Switch up your posture throughout the day. If possible, trade your desk chair for a yoga ball or a standing desk, or hold conference calls as walks. The extra movement will do you a tremendous amount of good. 2.…

    Mark Zuckerberg's Goal For 2014 Is To Write A Thank-You Note Every Day

    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says he wants to write a thank-you note every day this year, we learn in a profile in the latest issue of Businessweek. Every year Zuckerberg chooses a new goal. In 2011, for example, he vowed to only eat meat from animals he slaughtered himself. He's also tried to learn Mandarin and meet a new person every day. Here's how he described his thank-you note resolution to Businessweek: “It’s important for me, because I’m a really critical person. I always kind of see how I want things to be better, and I’m generally not happy with how things are, or the level of service that we’re providing for people, or the quality of the teams that we built.

    Voice of Experience: Kim Taylor, President, CME Clearing

    This week The Glass Hammer is profiling successful women in the derivatives industry. By Jessica Titlebaum Kim Taylor, President of CME Clearing, said that the automobile industry is to Detroit what the futures industry is to Chicago. Taylor moved to Chicago from the Detroit area to work for Sprint, managing 25 telemarketers. One year later when the firm moved her function to Kansas City, Taylor started looking at job ads in the Chicago Tribune. Taylor received two offers: one was for a newspaper called The Hammond Times, and the other was for a senior analyst position at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME Group). The Hammond Times position was a better opportunity, she said. “The other job was a management position and had a better…

    Problems With Coworkers? Learn to Diffuse a Potential Career Landmine

    Have you ever had to confront a colleague or teammate? How did you manage to express yourself? Was the result as you expected? Communication is everything. (Click here to tweet this thought.) Your career can be shaped by how you deal with a dispute, confrontation or crisis. Spontaneous, heated squabbles damage your credibility and respect. While you can share your message in a number of ways, some can obscure what you’re saying. Instead, people will be busy deciding how to react to your innuendo. Language is a strong conductor of messages and catalyst of emotions, and your choices of expression are vast. Choose wisely. The most common sins we commit when we’re annoyed with a coworker: Criticizing in public. “Before we conclude the meeting,…

    How to Share Your Awesomeness with the World

    When I was in fourth grade, I developed a habit of telling every adult I met all the things I had accomplished. Not only that day or that week, but literally everything I had ever accomplished. As I was a still somewhat adorable nine-year-old girl, this behavior — although not idealized — was tolerated, and even supported at times. However, when I was still doing at 15, all it made me was unpopular. It wasn’t until I was applying for my first post-college job that my mentor at the time explained to me that being busy wasn’t the same as accomplishing something. I was shell-shocked; how could she sit there and tell me I hadn’t done anything? I knew that I…

    Is It Worth It to Go Back to School?

    When people consider ways to get a better job or a boost in salary, one of the things they think about is whether they should go back to school.That decision becomes more difficult as the average undergraduate student loan debt hits $25,000 and some jobs don't offer better paychecks with more education.PayScale, which collects information on salaries, finds that those in finance, computer science or economics may see a salary increase if they have a master's degree but not those in history, English or art, lead economist Katie Bardaro says.Those in a pickle because their professions demand a master's degree but don't see it translate into better pay are those in psychology, social work and education, she said.To further complicate…
