CareerCoach, my new weekly blog for
It seems like theres a real interest in the subject matter I intend to
address each week an article Id written that was featured in September
called 10 fatal flaws of a doomed employee compelled over 65 folks to make a
comment about what I said.
objective with this new blog is provide you with real hands-on, field tested
tactics you can use immediately to move your career into a higher gear. This is
what I already do every day in my coaching practice with my clients. Some of
the ideas I will discuss in this blog are going to cause a few hearts to race;
and others may simply be common sense to you.

Simple. Just not easy.
intention with this blog is to help you have a better career. Regardless of age, position, or gender,
within the obvious constraints of a short weekly blog, I intend to help you to
have a better life. Most of the time I
will provide solid information you can use on the job; but some of the time,
you may come here and find me merely contemplating issues. Either way, you wont find this blog boring.
