    A Memorial Day Message to Employers

    It is our duty as employers to understand the value of our Veterans and the career challenges they face.

    This Memorial Day, as we take a solemn moment to reflect on those who have served us and the price they have paid, I wanted to take this opportunity to remind employers of the tremendous skills and qualities our veterans bring to our businesses once they leave the military; specifically Junior Military Officers.   A Junior Military Officer (JMO) is typically someone who has spent 3-6 years in active duty as a commissioned officer in the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines or Navy.  These...Continue reading

    Can you fix a broken employee?

    Is your boss doing a good job as your mentor?

    Do you feel like your boss has your best interest in mind when discussing your career path? Does he or she listen to what you want to accomplish, and work with you to help achieve your goals?  OR is the disconnect between what you are doing today, and what you want to be doing, driving you insane?    If you feel like you are on a different planet at work, like you are not being heard, and you see things differently than your boss…you are not alone.  Often times we expect our...Continue reading

    Three Steps to Stop Your Boss From Micromanaging You.

    Can’t get your boss off your back?

    How annoying is it when your boss constantly tells you how to do your job, or even worse, when he tries to tell your employees how to do theirs, bypassing you altogether.  It is very hard to stay motivated or focused when you have someone standing over your shoulder.  And it is difficult to manage others when they are think someone higher up is looking at them.  So how can you get your boss off your back AND get them to listen to what you have to say?   Step One:  Get your act...Continue reading

    Is your company innovative? Are you doing your part?

Does your company have an R&D group that appears very busy to everyone, spends millions of dollars, and never seems to roll out any success stories?   Do you wonder how other companies manage to stay one step ahead of yours in the marketplace? Do you have a “follow the market leader” strategy since you don’t have the finances to invest in your own innovation?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, then...Continue reading
