Career success rarely happens by accident. You need to place yourself in the position to get lucky, not wait around hoping for luck. That means drafting a career plan, initiating steps to advance along the pathway you've created and learning to identify and pounce on opportunistic detours.
A mentor can help you make sound decisions along the way. Sometimes, however, you'll need to mentor yourself. And that's when you must diagnose situations clearly and respond decisively to propel your career forward.
Have you sent a search party to find your desk? A messy desk is funny, and yet it isn’t: Statistically a cluttered desk will cost 20% of your efficiency. That is 400 hours per year, or one day per week in lost time due to clutter!
And yet, an empty desk is neither realistic nor optimal.
You are invited to join us for a 60-minute audio conference with a light-hearted approach to winning the battle against clutter and keeping your desk organized, efficient and a pleasure to work at instead of a shame to behold.
There's nothing more frustrating: You know what needs to be done, you know how to get it done, but you don't have the authority you need to make it happen.
The solution? It's not a promotion or a new title.
It's about how you act in relation to authority, how you ask for the resources and autonomy you need and the credibility you bring into the office every day that makes the difference between helplessly watching your work stack up around you, and getting it done.
So much of our workplace success depends on the co-operation of others. Wouldn't it be wonderful if you had the power to have everyone simply do what you want them to do without constant pushback and resistance?
Helen Wilkie's presentation, "How to Get People to do What You Want without Bribery, Blackmail or a Magic Wand!" will give you the psychological tools to do just that.
