    David's Saga: a continuing series about work today. Episode 7: For the sake of the marriage

    At the end of the previous episode, Susan agreed to let David take a month for "planned serendipity: " exploring what sort of work he might pursue and giving himself the first real break from work in his 19 years of working.But after a month of Sierra Club hikes, photography classes, dog-walking meetups, and a seven-day juice-fast meditation retreat, David was still clueless as to what to do careerwise."Susan, I need another month or two."'David, our savings are starting to dwindle. It makes me nervous. If you haven't found your calling in all this time, another month won't likely help.""I'm not looking for my calling. Only clerics and guests on Oprah have callings.

    Whose Customer Is It, Anyway? 3 Ways to Balance Individual and Organizational Roles

    Have you ever had employees in your organization argue over customers? I was recently working with a client in Toronto where one of the company’s salespeople was emphatic that a certain customer “belonged” to him, not to the organization. The organization, on the other hand, tried to get the employee to see that while he did serve this particular customer, others in the organization did, too—not only other departments within the company (finance, project managers, shipping, etc) but also other salespeople in other geographic areas . The bottom line is that a customer can “belong” to both the employee and the organization.  Let me give you a perfect example of this.  While staying at a hotel, I ordered room service for dinner.

    How Sexual Equality Increases The Gap Between Rich And Poor Households

    IN “MAD MEN”, a series about the advertising industry in the 1960s, women are underpaid, sexually harassed and left with the kids while their husbands drunkenly philander. Sexual equality was a distant dream in those days. But when Don Draper, the show’s star, dumps the brainy consultant he has been dating and marries his secretary, he strikes a blow for equality of household income. Nowadays, successful men are more likely to marry successful women. This is a good thing. It reflects the fact that there are more high-flying women. Male doctors in the 1960s married nurses because there were few female doctors. Now there are plenty. Yet assortative mating (the tendency of similar people to marry each other) aggravates inequality between…

    4 Ways To Ensure A Successful Business Trip

    Organizing trips can be challenging enough when you are travelling for leisure. When travelling for business, though, the stakes are higher and the workload increases twofold. However, business trips offer the opportunity to display your versatility, resourcefulness, and capability in working outside your comfort zone.

    Parental Leave Policies [infographic] – Friday Distraction

    You don’t have to be a parent to understand the importance of parental leave. In the U.S., there’s a growing conversation about parental leave. Why? Because we don’t offer it. Over 188 countries offer paid maternity policies. The United State is one of 8 countries that does not. That’s why I thought you might find today’s infographic from Mercer interesting. In the search for talent, companies will have to compete globally. This means thinking about how your company compensation, benefits and work environment compares to the world, not just your backyard.

    One Time It’s Better to Take Your Eyes Off the Prize

    If you are a leader on a mission to focus the actions of your people this year, would you be surprised if I suggested having your people focus on something other than the actions you wanted them to take? It may feel counterintuitive, but the key to taking action is to shift your focus from the actions on your list to the values linked to those actions. Let me give you an example of what I mean. If you were a poor listener, most people would immediately recommend you take a class on developing listening skills. In that class you would learn the behaviors that go into being a better listener. At the end of the day, you would have a much better…

    What Do You Do If You Don’t Get Along With Your Boss?

    By Dianna Booher, TLNT Contributor So what if your boss is the person you don’t get along with? It’s like we just don’t click, and neither of us is talking about it. Should I be the one who brings it up? Wait until my boss does? Or just go look for another job?” These questions about communicating with the boss are some of the most frequent issues our trainers hear from learners in our interpersonal skills programs. The answer? Like so many other things, it depends.  Here’s the qualifying question: In most situations, does your boss seem like an emotionally stable person? If so, then give open, direct communication a chance to work. The following guidelines provide a process that can repair many strained relationships —…

    Why Failing To Set Short-Term Goals Is A Recipe For Disaster

    If you're starting a company or launching a new initiative, it can be tempting to give your team space to shoot for a long-term dream goal rather than ask them to drill down on the smaller goals along the way, especially if you're not yet sure what those steps might be. But according to Jody Greenstone Miller, CEO and co-founder of the Business Talent Group, failing to set specific, short-term targets can derail your project and overwhelm your team. In an interview with The New York Times, Miller said that when she first started her company, she was afraid to put metrics down for her team because she wasn't sure what they were going to be.

    Toot Your Own Horn (Without Sounding Like Kanye)

    I am Shakespeare in the flesh. Walt Disney, Nike, Google. Now who’s going to be the Medici family and stand up and let me create more? — Kanye West Yes, that’s a real quote. Love or hate him, Kanye West is the master of tooting his own horn. Though Kanye may love to talk about all things Kanye-related, his boastful remarks often have the rest of us rolling our eyes and shaking our heads. True, horn tooting can go wrong. There’s the humblebrag (“It’s so hard for me to write sometimes because I have so many great ideas”) or the boastful third person (“Erin thinks this example perfectly demonstrates boastfully talking about herself in the third person”). But when done properly, a little self-promotion…

    How to Ensure We’re Not Having The Same Conversation About Women in the Boardroom in 2014

    By Jennifer Keck Sheila Ronning, President & CEO of Women in the Boardroom, does not mince words when it comes to the topic that gave her organization its name. “Research for the amount of women serving on corporate boards is only being done for the Fortune 500 and those boards are still mainly only looking at CEO’s in F500 to fill those spots. So yes, we know there are a lack of women sitting at the helm of those companies,” Ronning said. “Mid cap and small company boards are also a great place for women to take a seat at the table and there are thousands and thousands of women who are more than qualified for these boards.

    Working Too Hard Could Sabotage Your Career

    Did you know that getting promoted is your company’s way of saying, “We’re betting on your future potential and your increased value as an employee and contributor to the company”? But before you can secure your promotion and big fat raise, a few things need to happen. You need to understand your worth to your company You need to be confident in your abilities to deliver and get the job done, at your level and at the levels above you. You need to build up your circle of influence, your relationships and your allies. And as you do the above, you need to send a subtle message that you won’t stick around if they don’t compensate you accordingly. Are you doing this? Or are you too…

    How I Invest in Stocks

    I am not a licensed investment adviser and so cannot give financial advice. However, I have, for decades, been a successful investor without any advisers and with minimal effort or stress so I thought you might find it useful to know what I do. As they say, do your own due diligence, for example, consulting a trusted professional adviser before making any investment. It's very tough even for pros to beat the market so, every time I have an extra $1,000, I don 't try to time the market but simply put the money into a low-cost mutual fund. That gets me diversification at low cost and I automatically end up buying more shares when prices are cheap. That's called…

    How to delegate effectively

    I am the poster-child for the saying “You have to spend money to make money”. I make a lot of money but I spend most of it on people who help me to do things so I can keep making money. For example, I have an assistant, a driver, a nanny, an editor, and a research maven. None are full-time but all make my life much better. I think I make their lives better, too, because I’m good at delegating. Here are three delegating rules I live by: 1. Don’t think of it as delegation. Think of it as customizing jobs. The reason driving nearly put me in the mental ward is that I can’t stop looking for new things to think about. Which…

    Boomers: How to Work with a Team Younger Than Your Kids

    Baby boomers everywhere are lamenting the same workplace development. All of a sudden, the people working in their offices are younger than their children, who are now approaching the ripe age of 30. And somehow, the same millennial traits of self-assurance and eagerness that were cute in their kids have become annoying in their teammates. If you are in this boat, fear not. Here are a few ways to work effectively with those twenty-somethings without losing your sanity: Be a Parental Figure This one may be controversial because many people believe parents (even surrogate ones) have no place in the work environment. But twenty-somethings want an office culture that feels like family, and they want to have someone older to whom they…

Workplace Drama: 10 Reasons You Aren’t Getting Ahead

0

One of the biggest things that professionals are often blinded by are actions that lead to workplace drama. Workplace drama is typically so heavily frowned upon by management that even a high-performer, who might be labeled as a “troublemaker,” will often be one of the first fired during downsizing or organizational realignment.

While I think you should try your best to avoid drama, it’s almost impossible to totally prevent it. Therefore, you must effectively manage your emotions and actions. Your ability to recognize and effectively navigate workplace drama is something that will add value to your career.

Here are 10 self-defeating workplace behaviors that can lead to drama, and actions you can take to combat these personality or interpersonal flaws…
