    5 Secrets to Sparking Your Creativity

    Gretchen Rubin, the author of the highly successful book The Happiness Project spent a year trying to figure out what made her happy. One of her conclusions was that following her passions, instead of curbing her impulses to be creative, brought her much closer to that elusive goal. In order to do that, she designed several ways to help spark her creativity on a regular basis. They include taking notes and making random lists, poking around the Internet and visiting strange locations that seem to attract her. You can spark your own creativity by trying out some of her ideas, or maybe some of these five other ways to get your imagination and creativity flowing.

    Q&A with Lindsey Pollak: Next Level Leadership

    Without doubt, there is an important transition in your career from being the “newbie” at the office to taking on more responsibility and evolving into a more seasoned role model, and even leader, within your organization. Many millennials are becoming leaders and even more want to step into leadership roles. I sat down with my friend Lindsey Pollak, millennial workplace expert and spokesperson for The Hartford’s My Tomorrow campaign, to hear about how employees can move on to “next-level” leadership. Alex: What are some tips you can offer to individuals who are looking to gain their first promotion at work? Lindsey: Try to go from asking the questions to answering them. Here is one way to practice: When there is a new…

    Performance Management Process Gaps: New Research and Four Action Steps

    Performance planning, coaching, and review are the foundation of any well-designed performance management system, but the results of a recent study suggest that leaders are falling short in meeting the expectations of their direct reports. A survey of 470 human resource and talent management professionals by Training magazine and The Ken Blanchard Companies found gaps of 24–39 percent between what employees wanted from their leaders and what they were experiencing in 10 key areas (see chart.)     Performance management is a key leadership responsibility. This survey suggests that significant gaps exist between employee expectations and what they are experiencing at work. Left unaddressed, these gaps represent a drain on overall organizational vitality through lowered employee intentions to stay, endorse, and apply discretionary…

    9 Tricks For Waking Up Earlier

    Not only does the early bird get the worm, but he's generally happier and has a higher overall satisfaction with his life. "We don't know why this is, but there are a few potential explanations," writes researcher Renee Biss in a study conducted by the University of Toronto. "Evening people may be more prone to social jet lag; this means that their biological clock is out of sync with the social clock." While there's a strong argument that this bias is a holdover from when we were a farming society — research shows that people have naturally varying sleep profiles, also known as "chronotypes" — the fact remains that modern society is shaped around the early-bird ideal.  For those of us who aren't naturally early risers, we've…

    How far should you go in de-cluttering

    Yesterday, while throngs of South Floridians were at the beach or enjoying the cool indoor a/c, I was in my hot garage cleaning out the junk. It's amazing how much clutter a family can accumulate from one summer to the next.  Our garage has become the entry to our home. So every time I come in and out of it, I feel cluttered. As much as I tried to pretend otherwise, seeing clutter around me -- in the car, garage,  desk -- affects my psyche. Having clutter around me makes work life balance seem more elusive. Cleaning the garage was a process. Not only did I weed out what I considered junk, but I had to get my husband and kids to…

    How to Know If You're a Toxic Sponge

    Are you the one that colleagues or your boss turn to when there is a crisis or they just need to unload their negative baggage? Do you then feel pressure to fix whatever is going wrong – as they walk away feeling better from having unloaded their troubles on you?If so, you may be a toxic sponge.While others find your calm demeanor and attentive presence reassuring and comforting, the reality is that you can only absorb so much negativity. After a while, you will begin to pay a price for a willingness to take on the troubles of others, and it may start to impact your own work or personal life.The key is that you have to set limits.

    How Fame, Sex, Money, And Your Boss Make You Unhappy

    Unhappiness isn't the "opposite" of happiness — they're related, but different, psychological states. So while we might obsess over the pursuit of happiness, knowing how unhappiness works is important for our well-being, too. In an op-ed for the New York Times, American Enterprise Institute president Arthur C. Brooks explains the difference:  As strange as it seems, being happier than average does not mean that one can’t also be unhappier than average. One test for both happiness and unhappiness is the Positive Affectivity and Negative Affectivity Schedule test. I took the test myself. I found that, for happiness, I am at the top for people my age, sex, occupation and education group. But I get a pretty high score for unhappiness as well. I am…

    Cinnabon President Kat Cole Shares Her Best Advice For Getting Ahead

    Most ambitious employees want to fast-track their way to the top — but the climb isn't always easy.  The New York Times' Adam Bryant recently interviewed Kat Cole, president of Cinnabon, a popular chain of American baked goods stores and kiosks, who started her career as a Hooters girl at age 17. Bryant asked Cole — who by age 19 was helping Hooters expand internationally — to share her best advice for ambitious employees who want to move up the corporate ladder. She offered three tips. 1. Be "incredibly coachable." This is especially true at a company like Cinnabon, where everyone gives each other feedback, she says. "If you want to move up, you've got to get as many inputs as possible to continue to develop,"…

    The Top 25 Companies For Work-From-Home Jobs

    Are you looking for a more flexible work schedule? Are you constantly distracted in the office? Do you despise your daily commute? If so, it might be time to start working from home. But while 50% of the workforce currently has jobs that can be done remotely, according to Global Workplace Analytics, not all employers are open to the idea. "If your boss isn't willing to offer you a more flexible schedule, it may be time for you to find a new job at a more telecommute-friendly company," says Sara Sutton Fell, CEO of FlexJobs, an online service for professionals seeking telecommuting, flexible schedule, part-time, and freelance jobs. FlexJobs has identified the 25 employers with the greatest number of work-from-home job opportunities right now.…

    Landscaping Entrepreneur Explains How Focusing Helped Him Grow Revenue 1400% Over 3 Years

    Kevin Knight, the founder and CEO of Knight Solutions, was honorably discharged from the Army due to a training injury, but he's found another way to serve his country: by employing veterans to maintain military cemeteries. Earlier this year, he won the U.S. Small Business Association's Virginia Small Business Person of the Year award for growing his contracting company's revenue 1,400% in just three years and for helping veterans transition to civilian life. From 2009 to 2012, Knight took Knight Solutions from a little over $1 million in annual revenue to $16.3 million. He credits the tremendous growth to a key decision to transform his general landscaping company into one specializing in recruiting veterans to renovate national cemeteries for fallen soldiers.

    What to Do When an Employee Rejects their Performance Review – Ask #HR Bartender

    I received this interesting question via Twitter. Sharlyn! For a post…if employee gets bad performance review and doesn’t agree with it, is there value in going to HR to complain? First off, let me say that I’m a firm believer than an employee’s performance appraisal should not be a shock to them. I don’t know if, in this case, the employee expected a poor performance review or if this was a surprise. However, in my experience, when an employee came to human resources to complain about their performance review, it was usually because their review was a surprise to them. Enough said. Also, in case you’re wondering, let’s briefly cover the legal aspect of this. I reached out to Jonathan A. Segal, a…

    3 Things You Should Always Do Before You Quit Your Job

    Quitting a job is never easy — even if you despise everything about it. But whatever your reason for accepting a new role — a fatter paycheck, more flexible hours, a better culture — you'll want to leave your current position on the best terms possible "You never know when you'll need a recommendation or when your paths may cross again," says career expert Annette Richmond in a recent LinkedIn post.   Here are three things she says you should always do before quitting: 1. Protect yourself. Before you quit, you'll want to make sure you don't have a non-compete agreement in place that will prevent you from accepting your new position, Richmond says.

    This Trait Predicts Success Better Than Your IQ

    We all strive to become smarter — whether by changing our daily habits or perusing a new website— with the hope it will make us more successful.  However, the trait that takes you from average to spectacular comes from your measure of cognitive control, not your IQ, says Daniel Goleman, author of "FOCUS: The Hidden Driver Of Excellence," in a recent LinkedIn post.  Cognitive control refers to abilities such as controlling impulses, managing negative emotions, and delaying gratification in pursuit of long-term goals, Goleman explains. He points to studies from the University of Pennsylvania to exemplify the importance of these skills: Students that earned the highest grades weren't necessarily the ones with the highest IQs, but rather those that kept trying despite setbacks…

Passion vs. Profit: Ladies, It’s Time to Get What You’re Worth Today

0

There are many reports of how women and men differ when it comes to asking for what they deserve in the job market, and it’s often said that we women accept less than what we’re worth. But why?

Some might say we’re simply less aggressive than men when it comes to negotiating or making the ask, or we don’t even know the tangible value of our skills. (And, I get it: Some of us have no problem with this. We strategically get what we’re worth or hustle to make up the difference for what we don’t get. But too many of us don’t.)

One NPR reporter brings up a different side of this coin by exploring the link between our choices in major or skill-building with our career choices. Lisa Chow recalls interviewing Georgetown University economist Anthony Carnevale on the subject and finding that women are “overrepresented among majors that don’t pay very well (psychology, art, comparative literature) and underrepresented in lots of lucrative majors (most fields in engineering).” She continues to report that even when women choose high-paying majors, they often don’t choose high-paying jobs.
