Confrontation...Compromise or Combat?

If you lead a company, a property, a kitchen, or a team of any size, you do not have the luxury of being “non-confrontational.”  If you are working toward a goal, that means you and your team are being stretched to perform at higher levels.  That will produce stress and expose weaknesses.  As the leader you cannot allow such stresses to keep you from achievement, and therefore you will have to…ahem…confront them.

Confrontation does not have to be a combat.  It shouldn’t be.  You can…

Claiming Your Leadership Position : Achieving Success Beyond the Team

After reading Kathleen Wood's inspiring post, "Are you on a job or a career journey?" I was motivated to add my own continuation to the calling I had heard earlier in my career.



It is as true now as it was then,



"To claim your stake as a successful leader, it's not good enough to be, just part of the team."



1. You may be part of the most productive and… Continue

What is a Great Work Environment?

What is a great work environment? Most people would mention a good relationship with supervisors and coworkers. Others would say working in a place where they look forward to starting their shift. While these things are important to the hospitality employee, their answer may be more industry specific than for other workers in different career tracks.



The hospitality industry is heavily based in a strong dedication to a pleasant environment and friendly interaction with others.… Continue

Team time

We all work in teams. Generally I’ve had great experiences with them. Everyone has unique skills and experiences that they bring to the table, thus making the outcome of all the collective efforts just grand.



However, sometimes our teams encounter ruts. I know I’m not alone here. What do we need to do to bring back that special spark? (Cue the romantic music.)



As I’ve said… Continue

Leave the recruiting to Generation Y

People often ask me "How can we do a better job recruiting Generation Y?". My reply "Let them do it."



Not to long ago I was on a Career Panel at a local university. In addition to mine, there were three other Companies represented on the panel. The first recruiter presented a very boring overview of their company's structure, open positions and benefits.



I started to nod off. Luckily, a Gen Yer (and soon-to-be college grad) got my attention when she asked the recruiter a… Continue

My Blue Hair, Leaving a Great Team

The Ultimate Career Lifestyle is having a team that accepts you… blue hair and all.



Sitting at my favorite salon I decided to dye my hair blue. (Nothing permanent. Temporary. Two weeks max.) Not twitter blue, but a sexy, dark, ‘barely noticeable’ blue.



The color’s not taking. Should I take this as a sign?



Against my better judgment, I tell the stylist, “let’s try again.”

(Check ‘blue hair’ off of my bucket list. Remember, two weeks!)



Ok, so much… Continue

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
