Got Ideas? Become a Thought-Leader. Oprah Did.
by Dawn Lennon - Jun, 2011
Ideas have extraordinary power. They're the basis of the opinions, principles, and convictions that drive us. They underpin the plans we make and actions we take. The more universal the idea, the more promise it evokes, and the more compelling the spokesperson, the more likely we are to adopt it. You don't have to be a big shot to have valuable ideas. You just need a following of colleagues who think your ideas have me...
Losing Your Shirt and Other Consequences of Career Naiveté

The good guys and the bad If we’re lucky, we work with...
Predictions about the Future of Gen Y at Work
by Lindsey Pollak - Jun, 2011
As another cohort of young professionals enters the workforce this graduation season, I’ve been pleased to see some more positive articles about Generation Y appearing in the media. Sure, the members of this generation are still young and have a lot to learn, but, these articles assert, maybe they’re not as “entitled” and “coddled” as older generations feared. Finally some good press for today’s twentysomethings! I’ve be...
Want to Serve on a Non-Profit Board? Put Your Business Hat On.
by Dawn Lennon - Jun, 2011
It lifts us up when we do "good" for others: Help our neighbor, donate money to charity, volunteer at an event, or serve on a non-profit board. Non-profit board positions are platforms from which we can lead, engage support, and help more people. Some people "collect" board appointments to look important and influential. Others can't get beyond operational details to focus on the long-term. Many are so uncomfortable wi...

Corporate Culture and Accountability – Achieving True Accountability
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - May, 2011
I was recently working with one of my San Francisco Bay Area executive coaching clients - a managing partner in a growing company. We discussed how the managing partners are held accountable for achieving goals and delivering results. My client’s company is led by a leadership team where several members lack emotional intelligence. My executive coaching client and I further discussed how the culture that got them to where...

MAKE THAT NET-WORK
by Wendy Adams - May, 2011
The old adage of its not what you know, but who you know will never go out of style. We see it daily represented in almost anything publically displayed in the media. Now that media is currently most strongly held in the hands of the people, there is no shortage of proof that power is grown by the more people you know; the greater the access you have to these people and by the diversity of people you know.

Many years ago as a young, single professional, I got this idea that I should put down roots. Although I was a carpet bagging television reporter moving from city to city every two or three years, I found a condo in Tampa that I loved and couldn’t afford.
