To Temp Or Not To Temp - That Is The Question
by Debra Wheatman - Nov, 2009
Working in a temporary position or on a contract assignment can be a great way to dip your big toe in the pool to see if you actually want to go for a swim. Frankly, I like the idea of temping – it’s try before you (potentially) buy. You can really get the ‘lay of the land’ and avoid buyer’s remorse that sometimes happens when you accept a position and then shortly thereafter decide that you hate it and made a mistake. You sho...
Dangling Carrots Wilt
by Nan S. Russell - Nov, 2009
"Red tape. Infighting. Office politics. Employee morale. Can't get things done. Lack of communication. Layers of bureaucracy. Not valued. Rude, difficult people. Indecision. Lack of support. Inconsistency. No clear direction." These are sample answers from readers to a Winning at Working survey that asked about the biggest problems at work. And then we wonder, as supervisors and managers, why employees aren't motivated? Wor...
What Nobody At Work Will Tell You
by Elizabeth Freedman - Nov, 2009
Here’s a workplace rule we all know, but sometimes forget: Don’t Assume They’ll Just Tell You That There’s a Problem. Whenever I deliver any kind of seminar, whether it’s about communication, business etiquette, or anything else for that matter, there are always a couple of cranky folks in the audience who provide the same feedback: “I don’t need this! I’m fine! I would never show up to work wearing or doing anything unprof...

Be Who You Want to Be
by Alexandra Levit - Oct, 2009
In high school, you probably had a friend whom all the parents loved. You remember the type: good student, athletic team star, community volunteer, kind to children and animals, etc, etc. This kid never got in trouble and always did everything that was expected of her. And every time your mom or dad praised her, you would feel a little twinge of envy. A part of you wished you were that kid. The part of us that wants to be l...
Which Generation is Losing the Career Fight? (It’s Not Who You Think)
by J.T. O'Donnell - Oct, 2009
I recently attended a dinner party where the attendees ranged in age from 23 to 68. Not surprisingly, the conversation turned to the recession and horrible job market. The more ’seasoned’ workers at the table started to rant about their circumstances. The dialog drifted from the lack of raises given out at their companies to the various friends whose spouses had lost their jobs and how it was making finances tight in their hou...
Are You Ready To Stop Wasting Time on Company Politics?
by Sharon Melnick, Ph.D. - Oct, 2009
Salary.com does a survey every year of time wasting in the workplace. The 2008 report revealed that 75% of employees engage in time wasting behaviors, and half of those surveyed stated that they waste time dealing with office politics. The faces of politics are many. It might take the form of someone holding onto turf by “throwing you under the boss”, a boss who doesn’t “get you” or promote you, or colleagues or bosses who ...
Are These Career Myths Holding you Back?
by Marcia Robinson - Oct, 2009
There is really no one right way or one path to achieve the career happiness or the "career nirvana" many of us seek. All of us know that multiple factors affect the career decisions or life choices we make at any given time. If we are exploring a career makeover during this recession or changing careers, we must explore and debunk any career myths or perceptions that might be holding us back. As Olivia Crosby says in her a...

by Nan S. Russell - Sep, 2009
When young children misbehave, many parents, teachers and caregivers insist on a time-out. Think how much better your workplace would be if you initiated the same approach. No, not for your boss or coworkers, but for yourself. It's hard to be amenable to reason or hear a contrary point of view when we're stubbornly clinging to our position. It's hard to hear a new idea when the change that's being suggested will negatively ...
