by Judith Lindenberger - Jul, 2011
Have you ever wondered what makes the Millennials tick? So did we, so in the fall of 2011, we interviewed Millennials and their managers to learn more about this generation. Because many of our clients struggle with how to best integrate Millennials into the workplace, we interviewed Millennials and their managers through face to face and telephone interviews.

by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Jul, 2011
I was recently working with one of my San Francisco Bay Area executive coaching clients – the president of a professional services firm. We talked about how some members of his leadership team didn’t share information throughout the organization. They lacked social intelligence and the motivation to connect with people unlike themselves. In our increasingly connected business and social world as evidenced by social media and g...

Should You Tell Your Boss You Are Pregnant?
by Alexandra Levit - Jun, 2011
I recently had my second child, and so lately I’ve been a bit more active on birth boards, or online discussion forums related to pregnancy, childbirth, and child rearing. One question that pops up all the time on these boards is: “should I tell my boss I am pregnant, and if so, when?” I’m not going to beat around the bush on this one. Although we’re lucky to have the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, which states that emplo...

“Check it out,” said my husband as we zipped out of a parking space past a gaggle of cars. “What!!?” (I always miss these things). “That window sticker, didn’t you see it? Who Rescued Who?” If you don’t own a dog, or more accurately, aren’t a member that exclusive little club that has RESCUED a dog, the humor might not be obvious. There happens to be a category of people that wear this badge of honor; we are extremel...
Uncomplicated Leadership: Make it Easier to Get the Job Done
by Elizabeth Freedman - Jun, 2011
Unfortunately, making things complicated is easy to do. Take something pretty straightforward, like weight loss. I don’t know about you, but if you gave me a donut for every time someone said, “All you have to do to lose weight is eat less and exercise more,” I’d be up to my eyeballs in powdered sugar. I’d also hate to admit that something so challenging has a pretty simple solution, particularly after spending time and money...

I was recently working with one of my San Francisco Bay Area executive coaching clients - a president in a Silicon Valley high tech company. We discussed how culture change begins with getting clarity on desired results. My executive coaching client and I further discussed how the culture that got them to where they are won’t get them to where they want to be. I am coaching my client on how to change the company culture by...
Better life@work Tip: Be a Good Delegator
by Heather Mundell - May, 2011
Delegation is an art that requires practice and commitment, and therefore time. Many of us feel that we don't even have a spare minute to pet the dog, so delegating remains a pipe dream. Don't confuse delegating with dumping. Dumping work involves taking your most tedious or least appealing projects and handing them over to someone with little thought or explanation. Dumping work gives you the illusion of efficiency, until...

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.
