So you or your candidate needs a job And is frustrated!

Does this title resonate with you?  If so, it’s probably because you’re either looking for a job or recently spoke to a candidate that is really frustrated by how long they’ve been looking.  In either case, it makes complete sense for someone who has been out of work for a while to be feeling frustrated, angry, hopeless or depressed. 


Let’s start with a candidate scenario. While trying to find the perfect candidate, you come across a beautiful resume. You get the person on…

The Makings of a Great Leader

This past weekend I attended “Energy Leadership” hosted by iPEC, where I’m training to become a Certified Professional Coach.  Their website is http://www.ipeccoaching.com/ if you want to look into coaching or Energy Leadership.  The reason I wanted to become a coach was two-fold: first it would give me an opportunity to work with people one-on-one in a non corporate setting, and second it would give me an opportunity to add value to my existing…

Check Yourself

I originally was going to title this blog “Got Attitude” as my intention was to write an editorial on a blog by that title featured on INC magazine’s website. Then I thought copying the title might be some type of copyright infringement, so I went with Check Yourself, as in “you better check yourself before you wreck yourself,” like my man Ice Cube once famously rapped.
