Join us for this month’s free webinar on the topic of “Strategic Career Management Fundamentals.”
Successful careers don’t just happen; they are the result of an intentional, strategic process. It’s about more than just setting goals—it also involves actively managing your behavior, engaging in continuous self-reflection and improvement, tracking your progress, and keeping an ever-vigilant eye on your next steps.
All too often, professionals fail to truly embrace the principles of Strategic Career Management. Many set goals, and some even create plans for achieving those goals. But few actually follow a structured path for getting there. As a result, they lose focus and motivation.[Read more…] about Strategic Career Management Fundamentals (Webinar)
During my monthly webinars, I often hear a handful of the same questions. A common one goes something like this: “The people I work with think my job is inferior. They look down on me (and my role). How do I get others to value my work more?”
This question hits particularly close to home for administrative professionals. As a proud former admin myself, I know what it’s like to feel that your work isn’t valued. I feel strongly that, regardless of role, everyone should be treated with respect at work. But when it comes to getting others to really value your contributions, that’s a different story. If you want others to value your work—to see it as important and necessary—it really starts with YOU. Below, you’ll find 3 simple strategies to help get others to see the true value of the role you play at work.[Read more…] about How to Get Others to Value Your Work
These days, people talk a lot about adding value in the workplace. Specifically, everyone wants to know how to become a more valuable employee. After all, when you add more value at work, you should (in theory) receive more value as well. It’s only natural; contributing at greater levels should enable you to earn at greater levels too.
In my newest book, The Invisibility Cure, I cover this topic in depth. I also offer a comprehensive training program called, “Know, Grow and Show Your Value,” which has proven to be one of my most popular programs in recent years.
So, my point is, I’m passionate about the topic of adding value at work—and I have a lot to say about it. In this article, I’ll be highlighting a few key concepts for those just starting to consider this question of value. If you find the information here enlightening, grab a copy of The Invisibility Cure to learn even more how to become a more valuable employee.[Read more…] about How to Become a More Valuable Employee

No one goes to work with the intention of performing poorly. Yet, it happens. Quite frequently, I hear from people who have been put on a formal Performance Improvement Plan (or PIP) and they’re wondering how to handle it. The process can be overwhelming and emotional. However, if managed well, a PIP can actually lead to some important personal and professional discoveries. As hard as it is to believe, it can actually be a good thing.[Read more…] about What to Do When You’re Put on a Formal Performance Improvement Plan
