Jedi Mind Tricks at Work

Complaints at work. We’ve all got ‘em, we’ve all heard ‘em. Some of this might sound familiar. Susie is always late. Bob talks too much. Joe makes a lot of mistakes and no one does anything about it. Anne uses her cell phone even though it is against policy. The complaints go on and on .

Hiring is Heating Up. Are You Prepared?

With each passing month, 2011 is looking more and more optimistic. News reports indicate unemployment is declining, the worst may be over for the housing market (in most parts of the country at least), and consumer confidence is slowing returning. In the business world, the turnaround means many of us who were forced to reduce

Love… at Work?

No, not that kind of love! The month of February brings to mind Valentine’s Day and everything from love, your spouse, family, significant other, to those who are close to you. When we hear the word “love” we often think of our personal relationships; however, let's look at this word in a different context. Love

Love is in the Air!

February is the month of love! At least that is what retailers tell us as we walk the aisles and see nothing but a sea of red and pink cookies, candies, flowers, cards, and gifts created to help us celebrate the "holiday" and remind us to show our "love" to those who mean the

Interviewing: First Step in Improvement? What is NOT working?

In my last blog post I shared that while there are some managers/execs who truly are interview pros, most of you aren’t trained in interviewing.

What Employers are Looking for as the Recovery Continues

The economy may be slowly recovering from the recession, but what does that mean for job seekers? You need to be aware of what makes you marketable and what makes you stand above the rest so you can highlight that experience. Take a look at this data from a survey of 2,700 hiring and HR professionals

What Not to Wear…to Work!

It is amazing how the warm weather can cause even the most sensible people to make the worst wardrobe decisions! We hear more complaints this time of year on dress code violations, both from employees and supervisors, than any other time of year. Yep, that means that your co-workers may be complaining about you!

Interviewing: Do you really know what you are doing?

Why selecting the best candidates NOW may define the future of your company. Last month, Elizabeth Ambri, Branch Manager of Celebrity Lincoln and I conducted a workshop exclusively for Celebrity Staff clients on why managers should step back and evaluate their interview skills. We explained how doing so could benefit their company and offered specific

LOYALTY – A Celebration of 20 Years of Service

Loyalty and tenure: two words that rarely describe employees in today's businesses. These qualities were once commonplace in a time when pensions were common and identities were associated with a company, not a career choice. Ten, fifteen, twenty years were expected and anything less was frowned upon.

Does your January need some sun?

For those of us in the Midwest, the beginning of the year hit us hard with mounds of snow, in some places over two feet, and freezing conditions. With a little warming, we are now in a constant state of fog and gray. It is amazing how much the sun, or lack thereof, can impact one’s
