by Beverly Jones - Feb, 2016
It's well understood that upbeat and highly motivated employees achieve more than their negative, disgruntled peers. Recognizing the link between attitude and job performance, human resources experts used to talk a lot about the need to enhance "employee morale" and build "job satisfaction." In recent years, however, the buzz has been all about increasing productivity and innovation by promoting "employee engagement." Defi...
 
  We all have "customers." And customer service is a key part of your job.
by Beverly Jones - Jan, 2016
Because I spend long hours talking with clients on the phone, good quality, comfortable headsets are among my most valued tools. A few months ago I needed new ones, but I dreaded shopping because of past hassles, like being stuck with equipment that didn't work with our telephones. I searched on-line and elected to place a phone order with Headsets.com, whose website invited me to "Call our Headset Advisors." My call was pr...

by Beverly Jones - Nov, 2015
"Sophie" was a busy manager working long hours in a competitive environment. She had just received a modest promotion, which meant that her small team of analysts would grow from three direct reports to five. She had wanted this broader responsibility, but now she wasn't feeling good about her expanded role. Sophie told me that she had already been operating at full capacity. So how could she possibly handle the additional wor...

  Being aware of your time focus can boost your career
by Beverly Jones - Nov, 2015
I felt refreshed at the end of a phone call with a client I’ll call “Mark.” It wasn’t just because Mark, like many of my clients, is smart and likeable. What made the conversation energizing was listening to a person whose orientation to the continuum of time is so nicely balanced. Mark is comfortable with his past and has fond memories of growing up within a big family. Of course, he has experienced career bumps over the y...

  You Can Become More at Ease With Criticism of Your Work
by Beverly Jones - Sep, 2015
You Can Become More at Ease With Criticism of Your Work During my first coaching session with "Jodie," a talented scientist, she expressed frustration about not getting the challenging assignments she thought she deserved. She theorized that she might be a victim of gender discrimination. Or perhaps she wasn't respected because her Ph.D. was from a university some regarded as second tier.
