    Proactively Design Your Career Path Career Resolutions:  What’s on your list? by Adriana Trevino, Kraft Your Success Partner   The beginning of a new year is often a time when people reflect on the past year and make one or multiple resolutions.  Some familiar themes are related to health such as exercising more (I have to wake-up at what time to work out…4:30 a.m now?!), losing weight (ugh, still?!), or moderating the consumption of our favorite indulgences such as chocolate, beer, wine, or sugary lattes (Booooooo!).  Some people have elected more creative solutions such as

  • We are human beings, not human doings

    by • on Jul 27, 10 • in Career, Creativity & Innovation, Emotional Intelligence, Leadership, Self Awareness • with No Comments

    In this crazy, fast-paced work environment that we’re all part of it’s hard to remember that the “how’ of getting something done can be just as important as the “what”.  We are, after all, human beings not human doings. But the doing takes over doesn’t it?  We rush around trying to get it all done.  We schedule, reschedule, check email, send email and go from meeting to meeting.  At the end of the day, we look at our to-do list and wonder:  What did I get done today? I’m posing that there’s another important question

  • 3 Steps To Creating More Success in 2010: Step 2 – Identify Lessons Learned

    by • on Jan 6, 10 • in Coaching, Professional Development, Time & Productivity • with No Comments

    In my last article, we discussed “closing out” 2009 by reflecting on the year. This is a great first step.  But equally as important is the learning that comes from it and what you do with it.  These are the next critical steps to building more success. Step 2:  Identify lessons learned in 2009. List 6-8 lessons learned that you want to carry into 2010. For example, “I learned that I work best when I star t my day earlier.” “I learned that I’m more productive if I schedule most meetings in the morning.” &#

  • Focusing your time: What’s really important to you?

    by • on Dec 14, 09 • in Time & Productivity • with No Comments

    I had the great honor of speaking to a group of senior advertising agency media executives at the iMedia Summit last week. The presentation was entitled:  “Maximizing your brain and energy at work.”.  The engagement and feedback around this topic was incredible.  No surprise, because we’re always trying to find ways to be smarter and more effective with how we spend our time at work (and in life).   But what struck me most was how many people talked honestly and humbly about how they’ve lost connection to what’s important in their work – simply

    by • on Nov 9, 09 • in Career • with No Comments

    I remember when the Berlin Wall came down.  I was in an Irish bar in Australia.  I didn’t believe anyone until I saw it on TV.  It seemed surreal. Growing up in the U.S. with a father who had escaped from East Germany, I was always very aware of the impact the war and the wall had had in his life.   30 years ago or so my dad took our family to Europe for a month.  We spent about 2 out of  4 weeks of that trip in East Germany.  I remember it feeling like

  • Changing Your Thoughts and Actions

    by • on Jun 30, 09 • in Professional Development • with No Comments

    Right now is a very interesting time for us in the world. I’m sure many of you can think of different words than “interesting”. Let’s see…what are the words we’re hearing: “Downturn”, “crisis”, “loss”, “doom”, “things will never be the same” or “this is just the beginning, things are about to get worse”. Everywhere we turn we are inundated by messages and comments that are all based on fear and lack. We’re being run by it. Someone said to me recently, if unemployment is at x%, that still means that x% are employed. Yes, unemployment

    Multi-tasking? It’s becoming pervasive in our culture and in the work place. Our jobs seem to require handling multiple tasks at one time and our bosses and organizations often even encourage it. In fact, who has tried one of these tactics? Are any of these familiar to you? · In a large meeting, you place your blackberry or other device carefully under the table while you attempt to type and listen at the same time. Occasionally you direct your attention to the presenter or other employee in a very pensive, contemplative manner. While you know
