Have You Considered Fishing in an Alternative Spot?

Last Monday, one of my employees came into the office telling us about the 18-inch pickerel he caught in a local state park over the weekend. Of course, he's one of those holdovers who still doesn't have a smartphone, so without visual evidence, the size of his catch was met with some skepticism around the office. After all, no one wants to be told a fish story!

But one look at the enthusiasm on Will's face when he talked about his catch and I was a believer. Not having much personal experience fishing, I was curious what went into landing the fish, so I asked him some questions. While I listened to his answers, I realized he very easily could have been talking about ExecuNet members looking for their next challenge. I asked him:

How to Start a Conversation You’re Dreading

I anticipated that the conversation would be difficult.

Shari* and I had worked together for many years, and I knew she was expecting me to hire her to run a leadership program for one of my clients, Ganta, a high-tech company. But I didn't think Shari was the right fit for Ganta or, frankly, for the role of running the leadership training. In fact, I had become increasingly critical of her recent performance, though I hadn't mentioned anything to her about it yet.

That was my first mistake. I should have said something before it got to this point.

What you Need to Know About the Future of Work

 
The way work gets done seems to have changed at light speed over the last 20 years. There was a time when the fax was revolutionary and no one worked from home. Now, we can get through an entire productive day without touching a single sheet of paper, a pen or a phone. We can even be at work without seeing another person! Because of the huge technological advances of recent years, the very nature of work has changed dramatically. With that change has come some significantly different required skill sets for business leaders.

Six-Figure Hotline: Changing Industries

 
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 Ken Cole, an executive search consultant, and a member asked us, "What's an effective way to change industries in today's job market? I find that recruiters are recommending me to search committees, but they opt to consider only those with industry experience. I am surprised that there isn't more cross-pollination between industries."
