You’re only as good as the people you work with and the people you work for,” Casey Kasem, renowned actor and radio host, once said. It may seem logical to keep to ourselves and try to outperform others in the race for a promotion. But our coworkers need not be seen as competition – in fact, they are one of our greatest assets. There are multiple ways that we can rely on our coworkers to give us the boost we need towards career success. Here are some of the best ways we can utilize the talent, knowledge, and expertise of the people we work with, to help each other in a way that makes everyone win. Honest FeedbackThere’s no one who can give you a more accurate assessment of your strengths and weaknesses than the people who work next to you every day. While it may be difficult in particular to ask about your flaws on the job, ultimately it’s the criticism that will help you grow the most. Solicit feedback from a wide variety of coworkers in the company, so you can be sure that the feedback you’re getting isn’t clouded by one person’s subjective bias. “People often hesitate to ask others for help or advice because it requires admitting they don’t know something important. So instead they work in isolation, redoing something that their colleagues may have already done or making similar mistakes,” writes Christopher G. Myers, professor at the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School. By asking for honest feedback, you’re doing everyone a favor. What to Do When You Get Negative Feedback at WorkVisibility Through CollaborationIt’s important to find the best people to team up with on projects, so that you can work on projects with eye-catching results, and learn from your high-performing coworkers along the way. At the same time, keep an eye out for projects where you can take the lead and show your coworkers (and management!) your leadership potential and drive. If you can prove yourself, your coworkers can serve as a potent reference in advocating for your leadership strength. Leveling Up Your SkillsSurrounding yourself with coworkers who have expertise and good work habits can be one of the best ways to boost your skills, and make you a more attractive candidate for a promotion. In fact, a recent study by Cornerstone OnDemand, a cloud-based employee management company, showed that employees can be more productive just by sitting near a high-productivity employee. “The effects were driven by a combination of inspiration and/or peer pressure from sitting near high-performing workers,” wrote the authors of the study.7 Skills to Develop Now To Become An Awesome ManagerAdvice From the ProsAnd by pros, we mean those who have already been promoted. There’s no better source of advice on getting a promotion than someone who’s already done it themselves. While every situation is different, you may find a common roadmap among coworkers you speak with. Additionally, if you schedule a coffee chat to pick a coworker’s brain on promotion, you are implicitly sending a signal that you would like to be promoted, and your coworkers will take note. Building Your NetworkYour coworkers are your greatest asset in building a professional network. While you may not know everyone in the company, the network you have access to is larger than you think, if you just take advantage of the connections that your coworkers have. By meeting new people in the company, you increase your visibility, and also open yourself up for new opportunities to join projects or find mentorship. And of course – you can do the same for your coworkers, introducing them to the people you know. Mutual collaboration is key to mutual success.7 Two-Year Degrees That Can Help You Score High-Paying Jobs Senior Caregiver undefined Mission Viejo, CA 5.0★ Senior Auditor American Tower Boston, MA Senior Laboratory Technician Master Fluid Solutions Perrysburg, OH See more Senior jobs
A healthy work-life balance is a laudable goal that most people aspire to. In fact, a flexible schedule has become one of the most sought-after elements of a job.Part of this flexibility includes the ability to work from home — something 76 percent of women say is necessary for companies to retain long-term staff.There are many reasons women want to work at home — increased flexibility within their current position, to take care of children and save on daycare expenses or even to be their own boss or start their own online company.12 Companies That Let You Work RemotelyNo matter the reason you want to get away from the cubicle world, it’s absolutely essential to create a designated work space that, well, works. Here are five factors to consider when creating your own at-home office.1. Determine What Type of Space You Need The beauty of working from home is that you get to create your own work space and a routine that are suited to your needs, style and schedule. No more uncomfortable chairs or required clock-in times. But before you begin revamping your home office, ask yourself this question: What type of environment works best for me?You know yourself better than anyone else, so it only makes sense to design an office space that meets your needs. When decorating, determine if you’d like to use a standing desk or work from the kitchen table. Do you want your desk to face the window’s open views or would you rather face the wall and avoid outside distractions? Consider whether you work better while listening to music or if ambient noise is a better fit. What components of the environment increase your productivity and energy? Design your space according to those needs.2. Create a Schedule and Plan for DistractionsAlthough working from home has many perks, it’s easy to get sidetracked. You see a pile of unfolded laundry out of the corner of your eye, want to get in a quick workout, or feel the pull of important family errands.However, it’s wise to treat your at-home office time as you would a set schedule in a brick-and-mortar space. During working hours, you are unavailable for anything outside of your job duties. Create an action plan to deal with distractions and stay organized when working from home.Additionally, consider establishing cues for your roommate, spouse or other family members. Maybe a closed door means “do not disturb,” or certain hours are quiet hours in the home. Whatever your plan is, communicate it to others to minimize distractions.3. Incorporate Elements You Love Into the DesignMost corporate offices don’t allow you to decorate your space. You might get to have a family picture at your desk, but not much else.At home, though, you are at liberty to decorate your office any way you like. One great place to start is by painting the walls. Color is an easy and effective way to boost your mood and productivity. Colors can impact the way you think, behave, and perform, and the right color could have subtle effects on the overall success of your work.You may also consider bringing in greenery, artwork, and unique furniture to your space. Consider purchasing a treadmill desk or yoga ball chair. If the space makes you feel good, then you’ll want to spend time there. And the more time you spend in your office, the more likely you’ll be to get more work done.16 Companies With Jaw-Dropping Offices4. Incorporate Tech and IoT FeaturesThe Internet of Things (IoT) is the latest craze in technology. Putting it simply, it’s the act of connecting everyday items to the internet, and employees are increasingly connected to everything on their smartphone, tablet and computer.Use smart technology in your new office by installing smart lights and a smart thermostat. If you connect these features to your smartphone, you can change the hue and brightness of your lights and temperature of the room while seated at your desk. Now you don’t have to freeze at your desk because the office air conditioning is blasting. Instead, you can control the space and adjust it to meet your exact needs and even the particular project or kind of work you’re engaged in at the moment.5. Create a Home Safety PlanIn a traditional office space, you’re surrounded by people all day. But when you work from home, you may be isolated much of the time. Make sure to safeguard your space and take proper precautions. Here are a few security tips to consider when working from home:If you sell things as part of your business, never meet a stranger at your home.Install security cameras or a smart doorbell so you can see who is at the door.Communicate your schedule with a trusted friend or family member so people know your whereabouts.Be cautious when posting to social media. Don’t let strangers know you are home alone and don’t give them a clear view into your schedule.This article was originally published on DailyWorth. It is reprinted with permission.

There’s more than enough advice out there about what you should do when you land a job and want to jumpstart a successful career: Show up on time, do what you say you’ll do, and be curious (among other great suggestions). But have you ever wondered if there was a list of things you definitely should not do?As it turns out, your HR manager has a list like that! And to get some insight on what’s likely on that list, we connected with Kate Kastenbaum, seasoned HR Director at Certain, Inc. If you’re trying to figure out which behaviors will get you ahead at work – and which you should avoid at all cost – here’s a list of six things you should never do on the job: Never hold a grudge or let a problem fester“If someone wronged you and you hold a grudge towards them, you tend to avoid them,” says Kastenbaum. “That can make it really difficult to get your day-to-day job done because you’re naturally less productive when you’re busy creating work-arounds.”The solution? Deal with your issue face to face. Put personal feelings aside and focus on the work: “You may not personally like everyone, but you have to be willing to work with everyone,” Kastenbaum continues. “People want to work with a team player. Avoiding the problem shows a lack of maturity and difficulty handling challenging situations.”Don’t avoid your bossIf you’re more inclined to be open and honest with your peers, that’s a mistake. Your boss writes your performance reviews and often decides how much you get paid. She can be your advocate for your career – but only if you have a strong relationship. “It’s one thing to let a problem fester with a coworker you rarely see, but it’s damaging when it comes to your boss,” says Kastenbaum. “Open and honest communication with your manager is vital. If you have an issue and don’t bring it up right away, you’re not using your manager for what they’re there for, which is to help you navigate problems and guide you to the answer.”The Career Mistake That Still Haunts MeDon’t ask your coworkers for drugs Before you laugh, it’s a true story! While many company cultures work hard to build a close and friendly team, sometimes that can lead employees to feeling a little too friendly. Don’t let feelings of closeness blur the professional boundaries that must always be present when working with managers, coworkers, and clients. “It’s the season for holiday and event parties, and it’s natural to want to go out with peers and have a good time,” says Kastenbaum. “But even if you feel relaxed with your coworkers, remember that there’s always someone watching. Don’t get drunk, abuse drugs, or abuse the situation you’re in because the truth will come out and your career and work relationships will pay the price.”Never say “You’re wrong!”The customer may not always be right, but there’s never an appropriate time to flat out tell a manager, coworker, or customer they are wrong. Even if the person you’re working with is obviously mistaken, mediate the situation by assuming that the problem is real or the error is a mistake. “Always assume the customer is right, and give your coworker the benefit of the doubt,” Kastenbaum elaborates. “ As you work through the solution you can clarify or help them realize where the error is, but if you start the conversation off with an accusation you won’t get very far in the discussion.”8 Things You Should Never Say In A MeetingNever make a habit of being arrogant or disrespectfulYou can be the best of the best in your field, but if no one wants to work with you, you won’t get much done. While even the most well-intentioned among us can have a bad day and be too short or too egotistical with a coworker or boss, it’s in your best interest to not make it a habit. “No one wants to work with the kind of person who has his nose in the air or frequently disrespects others,” says Kastenbaum. “No matter how prestigious your background or important your project, you’ll build much better relationships if you show respect and humility in your interactions with others. Frankly, if you can’t get along with the janitor, then you won’t get along with the CEO either.”The Brilliant Career Advice from Deloitte’s CEO in One SentenceDon’t leave your personal career development to your bossDon’t be afraid to talk to your boss about how you can make a difference and grow in your career – and don’t expect your boss to be the one who initiates that conversation. “Your manager can help you, advocate for you, and look out for opportunities, but your manager does not own your career,” says Kastenbaum. “If you don’t initiate those conversations about what you want to learn or where you want to go in your career, they may never happen.”Sometimes what not to do is just as important as what to do. Use this list to double-check that you aren’t making any of these mistakes in your own career.

Little kids ask us how we get so tall, and it’s a real joy to see their awe-struck faces! 2. Why did you decide to go freelance? I wanted to be able to be involved in many different types of projects, and to meet lots of different people. 3. What tip would you give to a new freelancer or someone who is considering going freelance? Keep good records! 4. What is your favorite spot in the city in which you live? Especially at this time of year, Brooklyn to me equals the Red Hook public pool. It’s so refreshing to jump into the water and instantly become a kid again. ** 5. What is your inspiration?** The potential for human collaboration and creativity. I like to watch and listen to people for the ways in which we relate to each other. We are so stupid some times, and other times so wise.
Last night’s volunteer thank-you event was a good-time-had-by-all kind of party, and not just because we saw a certain tall, sunglasses-wearing basketball celebrity in the elevator on our way up to the lounge. There was a mix of volunteers old and new, from people who’ve probably worn through a pair of sneakers on our campaigns to people who are just lacing up for action. In case you missed out on all the action, here’s a preview of the three upcoming campaigns we discussed at the event:Clients who don’t pay (making them pay)Voter registration (no voting, no power)Endorsements (because every year is an election somewhere)
I don’t know about you, but I’ve got rules in my life that I adhere to for no apparent reason. I don’t know where they came from and if they are – or ever were – based on scientific fact.Examples:You shouldn’t put Teflon in the dishwasher because the heat makes the Teflon flake off, eventually killing your entire family.When it’s cold out, you must always let your car warm up for at least 60 seconds before driving away.If you stay up late watching The Daily Show and wake up your wife Linda when you come to bed, she’ll be angry. (I’m pretty sure this one is true.)And so when my brother-in-law, Holly, told me about a new book he was reading – one which dispels many long-held exercise myths – I went out the next day and picked up a copy.I don’t mind unnecessarily washing a Teflon frying pan or two by hand, but if I’m wasting time – or worse, doing something damaging – while exercising, I figure it;s worth knowing about.The book, The First 20 Minutes, Surprising Science Reveals How We Can Exercise Better, Train Smarter, Live Longer, is written by Gretchen Reynolds, a health and fitness journalist and columnist for the NY Times.It was enjoyable and, as anticipated, myth-busting regarding many of the rules I had been blindly following, such as:Stretching: “In the past decade, a growing number of studies have shown that static stretching not only does not prepare muscles for activity; it almost certainly does the reverse.”Water: “[There is] no credible evidence for the widespread belief that we need to drink eight glasses of water a day.”Running Shoes: “Over the course of three large studies, the researchers found almost no correlation at all between wearing the proper running shoes and avoiding injury.”Yikes. Nothing in there (unfortunately, in my case) suggesting that a cluttered basement will eventually lead to rock-hard abs, but much to think about, nonetheless.But it was this insight, the one which inspired the book’s title, that really stayed with me:“Almost all of the mortality reductions are due to the first twenty minutes of exercise … there’s a huge drop in mortality rates among people who haven’t been doing any activity and then begin doing some, even if the amount of exercise is quite small.”In other words, and as the book explains, if you already exercise, doing more (even significantly more) doesn’t yield nearly the same health improvement as does moving from doing nothing at all to doing just a little bit.The biggest gains, it seems, are in getting started.Well guess what, my rock-hard-abbed friend… marketing works the same way. It’s not so much the fine-tuning that yields the biggest benefits, it’s the act of doing something – even if it’s not perfect.Which means that:If you believe in the value of staying in touch with your existing contacts (and if you don’t, you’re reading the wrong newsletter), then stay in touch with them. Even if the way you do it is unsystematic, sloppy and incomplete.Sure, it’s better to have a system in place that works perfectly – I’ve become a big fan of Contactually (affiliate link) in this regard – but don’t let not having it perfect prevent you from keeping your network alive.If you believe in the value of creating and sharing content, then write something and put it out there … even if it’s not the best thing you’ve ever done.Waiting six months (or forever) to launch your newsletter, blog or free giveaway because it’s not yet perfect, on the other hand, is a losing strategy. Here as well, the biggest gains come when you move from publishing nothing to publishing something – not from improving on what you’re already doing.Here’s the bottom line. Am I saying you shouldn’t be fine-tuning your approach and tactics? No. No more than the book is saying you should reduce the amount you exercise.What I am saying, though, is that if you’re doing nothing in the areas of your business that you know to be important, you’ve got a fantastic opportunity in front of you. Get off the metaphorical couch, and break a little sweat.The biggest gains are in getting started.

How do you know when you are falling in love? Sometimes it’s easy to know, sometimes it’s not. Here are 13 signs that love is in the air!Starting a new relationship can be so great. You go on lots of exciting dates, you have first kisses, first sleepovers, you get wined and dined, and meet their friends. It’s all nerves, tension, flirting, and fun.But when do you move from just dating someone to something more serious? When do you know that this person is actually more meaningful to you? When do you know that you are falling for them and that love is in the air?Love is different for everyone, and there is no set of exact feelings that you will have that definitely mean you are in love. Only you know how you feel. However, with that said, people often do get very similar feelings when they start to fall for someone.If you are wondering whether you are actually in love with someone, or just want to tell the difference between true love and a crush or infatuation, then these 13 signs that love is in the air could help you figure it out!So, are you in love? Let’s take a look!#1 You wake up and think of them. If, as soon as you wake up in the morning, you think of your new love interest *in a good way, of course*, then it is a solid indication that you might be falling in love. This is particularly true if you think of them last thing at night too. Someone being always on your mind is a sign that love is in the air.#2 You daydream about them. If you find your mind wandering off, and you make up little scenarios about the two of you together, it shows that you are thinking about them all the time. It could be fantasizing about the future, or just the hot sex you are going to have later, but having daydreams shows just how strong your feelings are.#3 The thought of losing them is terrible. Do you well up at the idea of losing them, even though it is unlikely to happen? If you think about breaking up and it’s devastating *or even imaging losing them when the two of you are old and grey*, this shows how deeply you care for them.You now can’t imagine ever being without them, and know that they’ll always be by your side – this is truly a sign that love is in the air!#4 When you look at them, you get a rush of that “warm, fuzzy feeling.” The feeling you get when you are in love with someone is a kind of surge of positive emotion.It makes you feel like you could burst with happiness, but at the same time, aware of how vulnerable you are. It’s kind of like having butterflies, but more complex and intense than this – if you feel it, you’ll know!#5 You feel like you “get” each other. Being in love is about truly knowing the other person, and letting them know you too. If you have let each other in, feel as though you could tell one another anything, and understand each other completely, then it shows what a deep and special connection the two of you have.#6 You would do anything to make them happy. Being in love with someone makes you feel very selfless. If you feel as though you would do anything to make the other person happy, then it probably means you are in love with them.What’s more is that you also know just what it is that will bring a smile to their face, and so do your best to make that happen as often as possible!#7 You know their hopes and dreams. When you love someone, you want to know everything about them. You know what their aspirations are, from practical career ones, to their wildest fantasies.You are their biggest supporter and believe in them completely. You push each other on and try to help one another achieve as many of your dreams and goals as possible.#8 You get excited about seeing them. So, you only saw each other that morning and then both went to work, but the thought of seeing them again at the end of the day is so exciting. The rush you feel when you walk through the door and there they are is totally unlike anything else. You can’t explain it, but you just feel so happy to be together, even if you are doing nothing at all.#9 You feel more emotional than usual. As we said before, being in love can make you feel vulnerable and can make you look at the world in a different way. In order to truly fall in love, you have to give yourself to that other person completely, and doing so can be quite scary.Because of this, you are way more sensitive to your own feelings and theirs as well. They can make you cry with joy, but also with sadness much more easily than anyone else would be able to.#10 You have little secrets. Love is all about sharing things with one another, and letting that person see sides of you that no one else does. Inevitably, you end up having little secrets that only the two of you share.It doesn’t necessarily have to be big, “take this to the grave” type of secrets, but just little things such as the weird bedtime routine you have, or that you secretly find your boss really annoying. There are just some things that you keep just for the two of you, that no one else is privy to, and that’s what makes your relationship so special.#11 You completely trust one another. You can’t really be in love without truly trusting that other person. While it might be nerve racking to do so, love means you are able to put all your faith in that other person.You know that when times get tough, they will be there for you. You know if you have a big fight, it doesn’t mean you don’t care for one another or that you are going to break up. You feel safe and solid, even when you aren’t getting along as well as you should!#12 You accept each other’s flaws. Being in love is about totally understanding and knowing the other person. Often when we first start out in a relationship, we only let that person see the good sides of us, and we keep the bad part of us hidden from view.You can only truly love someone, and be loved, when you have shown one another all of your sides. Once you have accepted each other for who you truly are, then you can call it love.#13 They are your best friend as well as your lover. Being in love isn’t just about the physical side and the flirting. There is a great friendship underneath it all as well. Good friends depend on one another and support each other, but they also give each other space to grow and freedom to be an individual too.So, do any of these sound familiar to you? If so, it might just be that love is in the air and you are really falling for your partner – what a wonderful feeling that must be!Source

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to Email AppEmail AppShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to MessengerMessengerShare to SlackSlack Scott Kirsner from The Boston Globe posted a video interview on his blog today with Gail Goodman, CEO of Constant Contact . We’re really big fans of Gail here at HubSpot. She is, as we say in Boston, “wicked smart” and an exceptional entrepreneur (ConstantContact went public last year). HubSpot is fortunate enough to have Gail on our board of directors. Oh, and by the way, Gail knows a thing or two about email marketing. ConstantContact has over 200,000 customers. Quick Tips From An Email Marketing Maven 1. It’s all about relevance. Be interesting. Don’t be self-serving.2. Keep it short and sweet so people read it immediately. “I’ll get to it later” is the kiss of death.3. Don’t revert to your “formal” voice when writing. You’ve got a personality, show it.4. Put a teaser in the email, and a link back to your website. Engage them there.5. Links in the email are great because they’re trackable. You can figure out what’s working.6. Once a month is about the right level of frequency for most small businesses.7. Two things that get your email opened: #1: “From” and #2 “Subject”. 8. Most important: Be Empathetic! If you “listen between the lines” in the video, you’ll see several times where Gail suggests asking yourself “how would you react?”All things considered, we’d rather you focus on inbound marketing . But, if you’re spending some energy on email marketing, you might as well do it well and get your messages read. Topics:
Topics: Originally published Sep 21, 2011 11:27:00 AM, updated October 20 2016 If you thought Facebook was going to sit back and just watch Google+ take over, you were greatly mistaken. Yesterday, Facebook announced two brand new updates, which enhance the News Feed by consolidating ‘top stories’ and ‘most recent’ stories into one single feed and introduces a completely new feature called Ticker.Here’s a quick look at Facebook’s newest features, including the release of the updated Friends List functionality and the new Subscribe button that were introduced just last week.Facebook’s New FeaturesAs we mentioned, Facebook has released two new updates:1. Changes to the News Feed: These changes combine the former two-tabbed News Feed (which displayed either ‘Most Recent’ updates or ‘Top Stories,’ depending on which the user selected) into one consolidated News Feed. The smarter feed now shows a user stories depending on how frequently that user visits Facebook, with the ‘top stories’ (marked with a blue corner) since a user’s last visit shown at the top:If you haven’t logged into Facebook for a while, you’ll see more ‘top stories’ featured at the top.If you log in frequently, you’ll see more ‘recent stories’ featured at the top.In addition, photos are now more easily viewable within the News Feed now that Facebook has made them bigger and more prominent.2. The Ticker: While the News Feed still claims to show you stories in real time, there’s still a slight lag, and it’s not exactly as “real time” as you’d think. The new Ticker solves this. Displayed in the top right corner of Facebook directly above the chat pane, like the chat pane, the Ticker follows you throughout Facebook, whether you’re on your News Feed or another user’s profile (or anywhere else for that matter).Ticker shows you similar stories to what are presented in your News Feed, but it displays these updates instantly, enabling you to quickly identify, jump in, and comment on a story as the conversation is happening. Users can easily click on stories that pop up in their Ticker, view the full story, and comment, all without needing to navigate to a new Facebook page. Additionally, users with larger screens have the ability to adjust the Ticker to show more stories, pushing the chat pane down as a result, if desired.Marketing TakeawayOver the few couple of months, we’ve seen Facebook and Google+ battling it out with the introduction of tons of new features in hopes of reigning supreme in the competition for social networking domination. While Google+ has been the first to roll out attractive new features, Facebook hasn’t exactly been sitting idly by, fighting back with its own new features in order to compete.All of these new changes Facebook and Google+ have been implementing mean a few important things for marketers: an emphasis on personalization, advantages in social search, and even more movement toward creating a truly real-time web.So what specifically should marketers do? First, understand that personalization in marketing is becoming even more important. As a marketer, make sure your posts in social media are relevant and personal for your target audience. Second, because public search is becoming more and more possible in social networks, be sure that every post you publish is both optimized with your target keywords and is made publicly available. This will increase the chances your content will get found in social search and reach a broader audience, surpassing just your direct network of fans.What do you think of Facebook’s new updates?
