When Representing Your Company, It Can’t Hurt to Ask

……………….Rejection can be tough. Some of us learn after years of being cut from teams or losing school elections that it’s safer not to put yourself out there. But work is different. You represent your company and securing the best terms with a client, a consultant or a vendor is your job. Of course it’s…

You’ve Been Screwed at Work, Now What?

……………………A few nights ago I had a great conversation over Skype with the Isenberg Women in Business Society at UMass Amherst’s Isenberg School of Management. They raised interesting questions, but one in particular reflected a universal dilemma all of us face one time or another. What do you do at work when you feel like…

What To Do When Your Mentor Leaves the Company

……………………………The following is an article I wrote recently for The Daily Muse: There’s nothing better than having a mentor at work—someone to offer you guidance in your career, give you advice on your day-to-day responsibilities, and help you succeed within the organization.

Coalition Building With Your Colleagues and Clients

Now that the election is over, we can all be happy there are no more snipey political ads, no more intrusive political phone calls, and; no more annoying candidate diatribes.

Considering the pressure put on students to obtain the perfect job after college, it’s surprising that the majority of them leave their work within the first two years.

Ask or You Shall Not Receive

 It’s time to come clean.  I was, or am, (not really sure… once one, always one?) an investment banker.  I was in hiding for a while, especially during the early days of the recession. Neither Capitol Hill, the news media, or…well, really anyone… seemed to like my type.   But as an investment banker, I gained a lot of…

Maintaining Senior Relationships

Through your early career, it will seem like everyone you work with will be senior to you. They will be. And damn it- sucking up to them is unfortunately part of your job description.  It would be so nice to scrunch up in your office chair, just you and your half-caf double latte, hold the foam. …
