In managing the trajectory of your career, one of the most important assets you have is your reputation.

138. How to work online, remain productive, and connect with people.

6/13/2022
I am always giving my clients tips on how to work online. Here are the key complaints I hear from clients and friends: But, working online is now the main aspect of white-collar working life. Many office workers who, pre-pandemic, had to commute to work now can work remotely. Even if they go back to the office, you may find it empty, and most of the work you do is still in front of the computer anyway. So for transitional office-based companies, virtual companies, working for yourself, or...

132. When coaching doesn’t work.

5/2/2022
Engaging a career coach is considered by many professionals a difficult to make. They can't be sure of the results, and the investment is substantial, especially if you're between jobs and not earning a paycheck. It seems counterintuitive to spend money at the precise time when you need to be saving it. For me, working with a coach was always a no-brainer. I knew what I didn't know, and I was hungry to advance faster in my career. At every opportunity, I signed up, enrolled, and paid for...
