When Your Past Success Becomes an Obstacle

Posted By: Carol Kinsey Goman
Filed Under: leadership, carol kinsey goman, business change
There are two kinds of change — incremental and discontinuous — that are taking place simultaneously and constantly in today's business organizations. Incremental change is the process of continuous improvement — what the Japanese refer to as "kaizen." Discontinuous change is the kind of large-scale transformation that turns organizations inside out and upside down.

Getting it Right the First Time: The Art of Communicating Expectations

Filed Under: communication, productivity, laura stack
In general, people like to talk more than they like to listen. This causes enough problems in the normal course of human affairs, but in the workplace, poor communication can result in a loss of time and money.


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 Patricia Romboletti, an ExecuNet networking meeting facilitator and executive career search expert, and a member asked us, "When working with a recruiter, when is it okay to contact the company directly? I've had situations where I have gone to an in-person interview and then not heard back right away. I have used the recruiter for follow-up, but should I go directly to the company for additional follow-up or not?"

Confident people are self-motivated, have high self-esteem, and are willing to take calculated risks.

Here are five ways to build your self-confidence:
