For example, how can you become indispensable at work or how can you stand out from the hundreds of job applicants? What unique contribution can you make based on your talents, experiences and skills? What is an effective resume? Knowing how to create the right opportunities is key to creating a great career and finding lasting success.

What Do You Want to be Remembered for at Work?

Tuesday, August 18th, 2009

Since the beginning of the month of August I’ve done two webinars addressing topics to help people better manage their careers, job security and stress. The first webinar focused on how to rethink your job and become indispensable at work.

In the second webinar last week, I spoke about the stress people are feeling in these turbulent times, especially as companies downsize and remaining employees face the challenge of doing more with less. Stress, of course, is a part of our lives even in stable times and we all need to learn how to create balance in life or we risk losing ourselves to mounting distractions and burnout.

Next week on August 25, I will present my final webinar of this series. I will be talking about how you can make a unique contribution at work and how to tap into your skills, passion, talent and energy. As yourself: what do I want to be remembered for at my job?

Hope you can join me. For registration information Click Here.

Got Job Security?

Monday, August 3rd, 2009

In the U.S., unemployment is reaching close to 10%. Many people and families are feeling devastated as they lose their jobs. Others who have jobs feel the fear of losing their jobs or becoming irrelevant at work.

In response to this employment challenge, I am conducting a career webinar series.
If you or someone you know is concerned about job security or career advancement, I invite you to join my webinars. In these webinars you will learn the mind-set and skill-set necessary to not only survive but thrive in today’s turbulent times.

The first webinar on August 4 will focus on Employability: How to Keep Your Job, Secure Your Future, and Become Indispensable at Work. The key to achieving this is becoming a solution to your organization where you proactively find ways to create value and become a problem-solver rather than just an employee. This requires a new way of thinking and approaching your job.

I would like to hear from you…what are you doing to secure your job?
