3 Small Steps to Better Integrate Millennials Into Your Workplace
by Lindsey Pollak - Mar, 2015
One of my major business goals for this year is to continually improve my keynote speeches. So far, this has involved signing up with a respected speaking coach, taking several high-level online classes and watching a ton of other speakers work their craft. It has also meant improving the specific takeaways my audiences receive. In every presentation, my hope is that every participant walks away with both high-level inspira...
You Are What You Accomplish
by Bob Roth - Mar, 2015
It is not how hard we work at something; rather, it's all about the results we achieve. Employers hire people who can get things done well. Because activity without results amounts to little, we know that results are more important than activity alone. Example: Let's say that you volunteer to lead a fundraising drive for your favorite charity. You and your team work sixteen hours a day for twenty-one straight days, in an...

The good news is the syndrome is quite curable. Here are five strategies to help you out: Know that it’s normal. Especially as a...
Are You Setting New Managers Up for Success?
by Lindsey Pollak - Feb, 2015
Last winter I started doing yoga. As someone who is not naturally coordinated, calm or interested in chanting, I had no idea what I was doing at the beginning. So I took some lessons. Then I worked my way up to classes. And now, a year later, I can occasionally hold a crow pose for three or four seconds and, according to my favorite teacher, my chaturangas are starting to “open up.” I’m getting better and I love it. Here’s...
College Students Have Many Obligations
by Bob Roth - Feb, 2015
To be successful, every college student has a long list of obligations that he or she must be willing to fulfill. Since these obligations are not always made clear to students, many end up falling short in several important areas.

The Millennial CEO
by Lindsey Pollak - Jan, 2015
I recently attended a party hosted by a startup run almost entirely by millennials. I had the opportunity to chat with the company’s twenty-something founder and CEO, who gamely answered my probing questions about his leadership style. (“So, you study people like me?” he asked politely.) What struck me most was the CEO’s lack of angst about issues that leaders of other generations often find controversial. Here were some...

Good Grades Are Not Enough
by Bob Roth - Nov, 2013
College students should be aware that employers look for much more than just good grades. Employers believe that well-rounded students who have had a broad range of on-campus and off-campus work and learning experiences tend to perform at a higher level than students whose experiences and performance were limited to classroom. The best employers seek students who have proved that they can excel in more than one environment....
A Letter to My 20-Year-Old Careerist Self About What Really Matters
by Karen Vitale - Mar, 2013
It’s a classic Catch-22—with a careerist twist. When facing big decisions early in your career, you don’t have tons of real-world experience to draw upon. And by the time you’ve actually racked up a decent supply of workplace wisdom, you may feel like you no longer need career advice. If only career tracks came with fast-forward and rewind buttons. (Or a blue police call box, for those who like to time travel in style.) Wh...
