4 Ways To Stop Being A Control Freak

This post originally appeared on Careerealism   I’m the first person to admit I’m a control freak. It’s not like I can hide it anyway. If you’ve known me for even a short period of time, chances are you’ve seen me in action. And no, I’m not proud. Being a control freak isn’t a good thing. In fact, some might call it downright annoying. I used to make excuses for it: “I can’t help it!” I’d say. “That’s just the way I am!” But, ya know what? That’s not altogether true. I know when I&rsqu

3 Reasons You Are Not Getting Promoted

This post originally appeared on Career Enlightenment   Have you ever been surpassed for a job promotion by people who are not better than you? If so, you know how it feels. It hurts. It makes you feel disappointed. Sometimes even angry. It also makes you wonder why you spent all those extra hours working. The question is: why do some people get promoted while others don’t? Is it merit, or luck, or self-promotion? After working with ambitious professionals for over a decade, I started to see patterns. There are common reasons why most people get passed over

Employers ignore almost everything on your application–except this

This post originally appeared on Career Enlightenment   It’s the holiday season, and millions of people are about to get a flood of unsolicited career advice from older relatives. Most of it will be useless. You don’t need to be told that a resume should be clear, uncluttered, and typo free. (A good summary of common, deal-breaking mistakes comes from Google HR head Laszlo Bock.) But don’t obsess over format and wording, which have rapidly diminishing returns. Nor should you winnow stacks of job ads to find the one that you fit perfectl

Here are five great reasons to send out your resume this holiday season: 1) You Could Be Firs

The Importance of Determined Leadership

With the accelerating rate of global innovation and change the dedication of an individual to solving a problem by drawing on the resources within a group is more important than individual genius. Many of today’s complex challenges will take dedicated collaborative practice over time to solve. I have dedicated my life’s energy to bridging the gap between intellectual and emotional intelligence. This is the other kind of smart we were never taught or incentivized to develop. The development of emotional intelligence is essential for us to be able to manage our amygdales fight,

10 Things Your Boss Won’t Ever Tell You

This post originally appeared on Position Ignition   The relationship we have with our boss is, as long as we’re working for them, fundamental to our world. Sometimes it can be a very simple, honest, open and healthy relationship. Sometimes it can be quite complex. The complexity comes from the very nature of human relationships where both of us might be quite complicated people and we are not completely open and transparent with each other about our work and our wider life. We don’t share our emotions very much either. Within this context it is quite possible your boss

Surviving the Holiday Blues

This year, I entered the holiday season in a funk. At work and at home, I felt pulled in too many directions. I received some health news that weighed on me. I'd given a lot of personal time and energy into an election season where most of my candidates got whooped. Everything taking place on the news -- from Ferguson to the hostage situation in Australia -- made me feel helpless. The thought of the holidays seemed overwhelming, and if I'm being completely honest, I really just wanted it to come and go without having to participate at all. I didn't want to admit this to anyone

#1 Mistake 99% Of Employees Are Making In Their Careers

This post originally appeared on Careerealism   There’s a big mistake that 99% of employees are making and they don’t even know it.   This mistake is being made primarily by people who are new in their career, but it’s also being made by veterans who see the writing on the wall but are ignoring the signs and symptoms.   The big mistake is the false sense of security employees are establishing in their careers.     It’s not their fault, though.   As kids we’re asked in Kindergarten, “What do you w
