Organizational Changes Can Offer Great Opportunities for Advancement
by Liz Handlin - Jan, 2009
Practically every time I turn on the news these days I hear about how “bad” the economy is. I am not sure if the economy is officially “bad” unless you are in the mortgage business but it is most certainly a time of change. There have been lots of notable mergers and acquisitions recently which are good for my business because as soon as employees get a whiff of major changes in management they hurry to update their resumes. K...
Catching People at Their Best
by Rebecca Ryan - Jan, 2009
I once got a lovely email from one of my staff members. Her son was sick, and she chose to work from home so that she could look after him. In her email, she thanked me for 'birthing' NGC and making it the kind of place where people can do their work from anywhere. Felt good. Really good. When I saw her that morning, I acknowledged receiving her note. She said, "You thank us all the time, and it occured to me that you prob...
They Asked if They Could Have 5 Minutes...
by Rebecca Ryan - Jan, 2009
It seemed nonchalant. One of the YPs in the audience came up to me after my presentation and asked, "Could we just have a couple minutes of your time? We'd like to talk to you about something." It had that cryptic, keep-this-on-the-DL tone to it. I was intrigued. We sat down. There were six of them, elbows on the table, learning in like the eager, committed YPs they are. Then it started. "In the last two years, half...
How To Handle The Stress Of Success
by Ramon Greenwood - Jan, 2009
Suppose you reach your career goals; your hopes and ambitions for success in your work have come true. Could you handle the stress of success? There's a myth that achieving your career goals - whether defined as money, prestige, power or more leisure time - provides peace of mind and happiness, fame and fortune. Truth is success is not an unalloyed panacea. Success almost always produces stress and pressure of one kind o...

"Weren't you afraid?" This is a common question friends ask after seeing pictures of how close we were to lions, elephants, leopards, and hippos. After all, our safari into the African bush wasn't Disney's Animal Kingdom, and watching a lion pride hunt and kill its prey made that apparent. But I never was fearful. There were times when adrenalin heightened my awareness, but the trust in our trackers and guides transcended my f...
Why Leadership That Counts is Needed Now, More Than Ever
by Chris Makell - Nov, 2008
Lehman Brothers, AIG, Bank of America buys Merrill Lynch, the housing crisis, mortgage mess, fuel and food costs, on and on… While it looks dire, the times are creating opportunities for more people to become true leaders – not just in business, but in their lives. Let’s examine leadership from the two perspectives, personally and professionally to see where you can gain the most from these changing times. The current Wa...
Creating Engagement — An Action Plan For Managers
by Joe Feest - Nov, 2008
In MRA’s “Leading An Engaged Workforce (LEW)” series we define employee engagement as, “The extent to which employees are committed to their job, organization, manager, co-workers, and working both harder and smarter rather than merely showing up to do what they’re obliged to do. Engaged employees contribute discretionary effort in accomplishing their objectives.” Then, in our LEW series we identify the seven drivers that mana...
Don’t Want Management’s Job? That’s Okay, They Don’t Think You’re Right for It
by J.T. O'Donnell - Nov, 2008
Two weeks ago, BusinessWeek, offered some interesting survey results in reference to Bosses Day which was celebrated nationwide on October 16th. (What, you didn’t get the memo?) One was from national staffing firm, Adecco, which says 69% of 1500 employees surveyed said they wouldn’t want their boss’ job if offered to them. The reason why? The ‘pressure to have all the answers’ was listed as a main concern, but I’m here to tell...
Evaluating Quality of Hire: Can’t Get There From Here
by Dr. Wendell Williams - Nov, 2008
Time and again I read recommendations for evaluating quality of hire. Ask the managers, ask the employees, ask an astrologer. None of these things will ever give you more than a subjective opinion about the kind of information you need to improve the quality of hire. Here’s why. Imagine advertising for superheroes. There are a dozen steroid-pumped, ego-centric applicants sitting in your waiting room wearing masks, capes, an...
Creating a Retention Culture
by Barbara Giamanco - Nov, 2008
Holding on to your valued workers doesn’t end with a competitive paycheck. It requires an environment of great management, open communication, empowerment, and recognition. While the U.S. economy may be growing at a rate of 3-4% each year, employers are seeing a corresponding decrease in the availability of bright, talented 35- to 45-year olds. When you combine that with the idea that at any given time 75% of the employ...
