Are You Ready? The Value of Preparing for Meetings

Abe Lincoln* once said, "If I had six hours to chop down a tree, I'd spend the first four sharpening the axe." Whether or not you agree with the proportion of time that Lincoln would have you spend on preparation, it's hard to argue against the idea that doing your homework will serve you well. How do you prepare for big meetings or presentations? Has that changed over time, or do you...

Become a Student for Life

This time of year always reminds me of when I was a student and the excitement I felt when finishing up another year of school. I was a good student; I loved school and that feeling that I had learned a lot. I also loved relaxing over the summer and looking forward to the possibilities of the new school year ahead. Once you graduate and become an "adult," as they say, life is never quite...

6 Branding Tips for Job Seekers

Maybe you are still in school, or maybe you just graduated, but unless you're Taylor Swift, LeBron James, or Barack Obama, you probably don't think of yourself as a brand. In my experience, though, the most successful people do create and, in fact, become brands. Their brands are based on the experiences they promise and the values they live by and share. The chances are good that you, too,...
