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

New chef taking over the stove at alizee-video interview

You know me, have Flip camera will travel and such is the case with this story. I was one of 16 food professionals and journalist at an exclusive dinner prepared for us at Le Bec Fin in Philadelphia*. News had already come out in Baltimore that Chef deLutis was taking over the top toque position of alizee bistro. Since we were dining together, I was inspired to have a personal interview with him and his partners in culinary crime.

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: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

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" positioned 50,000 km from a telescope to enable imaging of planets about distant stars. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
