4 Simple Tips for Reputation Management

Great Tips for Reputation Management!

It is said that reputation will make or break you. While it is true that results matter, great performance one time doesn’t overcome a negative history. Your reputation develops over time. Your friends, associates, and coworkers are willing to trust you with their concerns and tasks when you have a positive history with them. Your reputation is something you work on, something you treasure, and something you protect.

You can think of your reputation as a product. Just as there are certain companies that you trust and work with, people are continually making decisions […]

From Ideal Employee to Newest Manager

In the workforce, we all have that one desire: to get to the next level. Whether it’s the job itself, nicer paychecks, more comfy seats, or a view from your new office window, we all want that next thing. In most cases, you work hard and apply yourself as best you can to each task you are given, all in the hope that we will get noticed for our efforts.

What many of us know and might have experienced in the workplace is this: Seniority doesn’t always win.  The hardest worker doesn’t always get the promotion. And sometimes, […]

Having Your Best Year Yet

Having your best year yet

As we begin another year, many of us have created a list of resolutions we are bound and determined to accomplish before the ball drops next December. We use this list we’ve made as a way to measure our own personal growth and to prepare us for the rest of our lives, one step at a time.

Learn to Trust Again

If your trust has been broken, you may think you will never allow yourself to trust again, let alone be able to trust. If you are ‘once bitten twice shy’ it’s easy to believe no one is to be trusted. Don’t try to protect yourself by being mistrusting – all you’re doing is putting up a wall between yourself and others. Don’t live a lonely and unfulfilled life without meaningful relationships! You CAN move past the heartbreak of broken trust. Even if you’ve been deeply wounded or if you’ve experienced traumatic and repeated episodes of betrayal, you don’t have to let another […]

Building Confidence

Self-esteem is affected by physical ill-health, negative life events such as losing your job or getting divorced, deficient or frustrating relationships, and a general sense of lack of control. This sense of lack of control is often particularly marked in people who are the victims of emotional, physical, or sexual abuse, or of discrimination on the grounds of religion, culture, race, sex, or sexual orientation.

Sometimes poor self-esteem can be deeply rooted and have its origins in traumatic childhood experiences such as prolonged separation from parent figures, neglect, or emotional, physical, or sexual abuse. If you think this is a particular […]

Loving Yourself First

He or she is the most wonderful person you have met. Everything seems perfect, nearly too good to be true.

You are truly happy; your glow is visible from miles away. All of your friends love this new person in your life, aside from one or two skeptics. Regardless, you try to convince yourself that the naysayers are wrong.

Time passes and the relationship has begun to plateau, even decline. Over time, the thoughts of those skeptical friends begin to resonate even more deeply. Still, something in you is crying for you to hold on, to not give up just yet.

Ten Signs You’re In Love

Falling in love is one of the most exciting, rewarding and scariest things you could ever do.

Once you’re in love with someone, it’s hard to remember how you lived without him or her. Of course, you were alive before you met this person, but you really didn’t start “living” until the two of you met.

Everyone experiences love differently, and at different times. Even the meaning of love is extremely subjective, but I say for certain that anyone who’s experienced it knows it’s the best feeling ever.

Here are 10 ways to know if you might be in love — rather than […]
