How to Make Thanksgiving Every Day

Posted By: Mark Anderson
Filed Under: mark anderson, networking, thanksgiving
 
Another Thanksgiving has recently come and gone, and as I sat around with family and friends, I found myself reflecting on just how fortunate I am in so many ways, personally and professionally.

I believe it's essential for people to embrace the gifts in their lives. Those who recognize all the wonderful people who have contributed to their success — the people they meet along the way and those who they meet each day — those are the people who are truly happy.

As part of ExecuNet membership, I conduct a bi-weekly teleconference called Six-Figure Hotline where members call in to ask the questions keeping them up at night, and to gain market and trend insight from the career experts who join me in talking about issues that are important to executives today.

In one such teleconference, I was joined by Tony Palmer, a recruiter with Stanton Chase International, and a member asked us, "When I was in a C-level job it felt like recruiters were coming to me frequently; now since I am in between jobs, I feel like the network has vanished. Do recruiters see executives through different lenses?"

Scaling the Career Jungle Gym

We always talk about "climbing the corporate ladder" but that way of thinking is for an era long past. These days that ladder has morphed into something more akin to a jungle gym.

I know, ladders are for grown-ups and jungle gyms are for kids. But the metaphor fits. Gone are the days of getting in on the ground floor at a good company, being there for decades and working your way up over time. Nowadays, we have short stints in different roles at different companies. The path is not linear.

 

 
Hunter Lovins, author and promoter of sustainable development, talks with ExecuNet's Tony Vlahos about doing the right thing, trust and curiosity in business leaders. Hunter believes the next 10 years are more important than the next 10,000 years. "We're up against in on climate change; we're up against it on loss of species; we're losing major ecosystems around the planet and we have all the technologies we need to solve all these problems. We can avoid the worst of the disasters that are coming at us out of climate change and do so at a profit." She believes there is a tremendous amount that companies can and must do in terms of human and natural resources. "Doing the right thing is always good business," she said.

In one such teleconference, I was joined by Patricia Romboletti, an ExecuNet networking meeting facilitator and executive career search expert, and a member asked us, "Is it possible and appropriate to introduce yourself to the posting recruiter or company if you see a job posting that isn’t quite right?"
