Sprinting to the Starting Line

Finish-Start-RoadCelebrating 2015 and preparing for 2016.

As we approach the 2015 FINISH line, we run straight into the START line for 2016. There should be a break between finishing this year’s holiday dash to New Years Eve before the pistol fires signifying the start of the New Year, but alas, this year’s FINISH line and next year’s START line are one and the same on life’s racetrack.

As we look back on 2015, we also look optimistically forward to what 2016 holds for us, but too often with a fragile determination. It’s difficult to keep our resolve throughout the year – keeping up a frantic pace through the whole race. One of the problems is that we tend to sprint right out of the starting blocks – a pace that is not sustainable for the entire 365-day dash. We become disheartened when we start to lose our breath, and after a few unexpected obstacles re-route the course that we had rehearsed in our minds, it’s too easy to throw in the towel.

Runners have a race strategy. They pace themselves and are prepared to adjust their game-plan as needed. Here are some strategies for running your race – whether it be personal, professional, or a combination of both:

  1. Celebrate what you’ve already achieved. Take time to reflect on your successes over the past year. Reflect and acknowledge what has gone well. Start the habit of a positive outlook – viewing successes and victories. Look through your calendar and list the highlights. If you have had performance reviews from your workplace, look through them and take note of your progress, your accomplishments and achievements. For those of you who tend to focus on the negative, suppress that tendency…for at least a moment – celebrate what went right! Enjoy the progress that you’ve made.
  2.  Visualize your finish. Have you ever watched athletes visualizing at the top of a ski run or the beginning of a gymnastics routine? They pre-rehearse in their minds every step of their performance. They are visualizing success, not what could go wrong. Many will also visualize themselves on the podium, seeing themselves as the victor. What does your victory podium look like? Where do you want to be 1 year from now – next New Years Eve? What specifically would you like to have achieved? What does it look like, sound like, feel like? Don’t worry – your visualization isn’t cast in stone, but it does serve as a motivation for striving forward. As Steven Covey exhorts in his book 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, “Start with the end in mind”.  Know where you want to go, then you’ll have a better chance of actually getting there. For you, it could be mastering a new skill or area of knowledge. It could be obtaining certification or earning a promotion.  MAKE SURE YOUR END-GOAL IS MEASURABLE! It isn’t very effective to set vague goals like, “I want to exercise more”, or “I want to keep my desk tidier”, or “I want to be more generous”. Instead, make your goals measurable:  ”I want to be able to do 100 push-ups, 200 squats, 300 crunches and 5-minute planks in one workout, and run 25 kms per week”; or “I want to keep my desk tidy for 90-days straight”; or “I want to have donated $3000 to various charities by the end of the year”. Those are concrete and measurable. With concrete goals you can track your progress and easily determine when you have succeeded.
  3. Break your end-goal into smaller goals. Standing 365 days away from your end-goal can feel overwhelming, especially if it is an ambitious goal. It’s hard to see your progress and stay motivated when when you are only focused on a distant ambition. If you want to improve your sales numbers by 100%, merely measuring yourself against that end-goal will most likely make you feel frustrated if you only achieved 9% during the first month – “only 91% to go…arghh!” But if you break your goal into smaller chunks, in this example months, you would realize that 9% is well on the way to SURPASSING your end-goal, which would only require 8.4% per month to be reached. Take whatever your year-end goal is and determine what sub-goals would be required to achieve the end-goal? What would you need to achieve in the first month? Second month? If you stumble and miss a milestone, you can make it up by the next milestone. Don’t let yourself be syched out by the how far away the end-goal is – focus on the next interim goal!
  4. Have an accountability partner. It’s easier to maintain momentum when someone is either working with you or is helping to stay accountable and on the desired path. My wife and I exercised for a year-and-a-half together. When one didn’t feel like getting up early to start our routine, the other would push (or pull) the other out of bed. Just hearing my wife get up and start to get ready had a magical pull on me to get up and get ready even though I didn’t feel like it. You might notice that I am speaking in past tense! When our schedules changed and we started working out individually, it didn’t take long until neither of us were working out. (I can assure you that getting back into shape is on my list of goals for 2016!)  Your accountability partner isn’t necessarily someone who will roll you out of bed in the morning, but rather someone who you can meet with on a regular basis and report your progress. You want them to be encouraging, understanding, helpful and a cheerleader. When you miss an interim goal, they can help you refocus. When you make an interim goal, they celebrate with you. This could be anyone: a spouse, a friend – especially if they have similar goals, a boss, a colleague,…or a perhaps a career/leadership coach (a shameless plug).
  5. Re-evaluate at each milestone. At each milestone briefly ask yourself, “do I need to adjust my end-goal?”; “Do I need to adjust my interim goals?”  Perhaps you need to INCREASE your end-goal objective? Or maybe it’s more realistic to lower the expectations if you’ve missed a number of interim goals in a row. Each milestone is a natural place to adjust and re-focus if need be.
  6. Celebrate along the way. Don’t wait until you’ve reached the end-goal to reward yourself. As you meet your interim goals, ensure that you celebrate your successes. It will help propel you through the next interim goal. Enjoy the journey!

Connecting with the decision makers in one’s field of interest is far more effective than sitting at home applying to job boards. Career professionals have noticed, and widely agree, that the vast majority of current job opportunities are found in the “hidden job market”. Most people do NOT find their jobs through postings but rather through their personal and professional networks. Furthermore, thanks to the internet and job boards, the jobs that are posted are often bombarded with applications, making it increasingly difficult for your application to be recognized amongst hundreds, if not thousands of others. We will show you how to create an effective networking strategy.

Job Search During the Summer?

Man with umbrella on beachIn the months leading up to summer vacation time, I hear many of my clients say, “I think that I’ll take it easy on the job search during the summer. People are on vacation, it’s harder to reach employers, etc….”. I would like to argue that while the hiring process can take longer in the summertime, summer is an opportune time to kick your job search strategy into gear! For a few reasons:

1) Companies DO hire during the summer! I don’t think that it’s a coincidence that in the past week I’ve talked to two different individuals who have both found significant jobs during the summertime – and not summer jobs. Many organizations are “tooling up” during the summer so that they can hit the floor in full force during September after vacation time is over. This means that if these organizations need to hire, they would be hiring… during the summer! Hmmmmm!

2) There are fewer job seekers during the summer. Over the years I have encountered enough job seekers who have wanted to stop or ramp down their job search during the summertime that I believe I have an ample sample size for this conclusion: there are fewer job seekers out there who are actively searching during the summer. What this means to the avid job seeker is that there is less competition!

3) Networking is ideal during the summer. One mantra of most every career professional is, “Networking is the best way to find a job”. What a better time to network than over a Venti Skinny Iced Caramel Macchiato? (Baristas out there, did I get that order right?)  When I say the word “networking”, the vast majority of my clients succumb to an expression of fear and intimidation. While many fear the idea of networking, networking is NOT the same as “smoozing”. The idea of smoozing causes ME to succumb to an expression of fear and intimidation! I teach my clients how two break networking down into simple, easy steps. A simplified version of my steps: 1) Identify your specific need or questions; 2) Make a list of your friends, family and colleagues who can potentially help you or introduce you to those who can help you; 3) Call in order of “safest” (those closest to you) to the least safest (those you don’t know as well). By ordering your calls this way, you will gain confidence and momentum as you work through your list. If you need some inspiration, I’d recommend reading “Never Eat Alone” by Keith Ferrazzi. And while you’re at it, treat your friend to a Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino and see if that doesn’t get you somewhere.

It is natural and important to take some time to enjoy the summertime, but PLEASE don’t stop your job search. The summer represents a time to look for opportunities when the picking is ripe, there is less competition and the networking can be more relaxed and enjoyable.

FROM GOOD TO GREAT! Attracting and Keeping Clients

Client HandshakeLast week I had the privilege of co-presenting a workshop with Wayne Pagani (W.P. Consulting & Associates) at CANNEXUS 2014 – the National Career Development Conference in Ottawa. The title of our workshop was “FROM GOOD TO GREAT! – How to Attract and Keep Clients”.

As a group, we first did some brainstorming, listing the general characteristics of POOR service delivery along side the characteristics of GREAT service delivery. We later applied these lists to our own field of Career Development. Here are some of the points that we explored:

POOR SERVICE
GREAT SERVICE
  • Rude
  • Impersonal
  • Shows no interest
  • Feel like a number
  • Service provider appears to be more interested in $$$$ signs
  • Inferior content or product
  • Sold something that is not a fit
  • Gives excuses
  • Doesn’t listen
  • Focused on self or the company
  • Inconsistency of service
  • Delays in fulfillment
  • Caring
  • Listening
  • Acknowledgement
  • Good followup
  • Going out of one’s way – above and beyond the call of duty
  • Smiling
  • Competent in service
  • Friendly
  • Kind
  • Consistency of service
  • Treated as an individual – not as a “client clone”
  • Communicates appreciation for client’s patronage – sometimes by simply saying “thanks” and sometimes in concrete ways
  • Responsive to complaint or concerns
  • Do what they say they will do
  • No waits

 

Someone at the workshop summarized “great service” as, “Treating the client the way that I would like to be treated in that situation”. I think that’s a wonderful rule of thumb – basically the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. Who of us wants to be served in the manner represented by the left column? In contrast, who would not be thrilled to be served in the manner represented by the right column?

An important point we observed is that GREAT SERVICE DOESN’T FINANCIALLY COST OUR BUSINESS ANYTHING! It’s a mind-set and way of treating people as important individuals! It might cost a little bit of time and effort, but I’m sure that most everyone would agree that the benefits greatly outweigh the costs.

While those who deliver poor service likely have excuses that seem good to them (a bad day, excessive pressure, I hate my job, the processes are cumbersome, etc.) in the end there is a cost to the business as well as to the individuals themselves. As a business, we lose repeat business from each dissatisfied client, and likely all the other potential clients that this individual will warn about the poor level of service. As an individual, if we allow ourselves to slip into the habit of delivering poor service, we also hurt ourselves – developing bad habits and attitudes that will hamper us in our professional growth and advancement. So let us all put aside the excuses! Get to the root of the problem and resolve it! There is no good excuse for poor service!

The benefits of great service are many. It provides a professional experience that the customer will likely want to come back and experience again. For those bean-counters who are focused on the bottom line – repeat business means increased revenue! And if the client is thrilled with their service, they will want to tell the world about the great service they received – meaning even more revenue! Our business relies on word-of-mouth referrals, and you can’t buy advertising like that! On a personal level, those individuals who practice great service are more likely to be recognized for their level of service and have more opportunities to advance professionally. They are also creating great personal habits (being friendly, being competent, honouring one’s commitments, etc.) that will help them in any walk of life.

As Career Development Professionals, we challenged ourselves in some practical ways for delivering GREAT service:

  • Ensure that the client’s FIRST ENCOUNTER with the organization, usually a phone call, is a great experience – friendly, no waits, prompt followup
  • RELATE – use language and vocabulary that the client will understand throughout their experience with us
  • EMPATHIZE with their situation – relate to them as an individual
  • LISTEN to their accomplishments, achievements and “proud moment” stories
  • Become your client’s BIGGEST FAN – provide encouragement
  • Find your client’s VALUE PROPOSITION for the marketplace – show competence as a Career Professional
  • Find OPPORTUNITIES and LEADS for your client – look for opportunities to open new doors for them
  • Be a strong ADVOCATE for your client – speak on behalf of your client where possible
  • THANK your client for their patronage! Thank them in concrete ways for referrals (gift cards, etc.)
  • Embrace CONTINUOUS LEARNING – maintain and grow your competencies
    • Read industry-related books, news, articles and posts on career strategy topics
    • Join a peer-mentorship group
    • Find a mentor who can help you address your specific issues
    • Network and share ideas with other professionals – LinkedIn, forums, etc.

At the workshop, our final challenge was, and it’s a challenge that I leave with all my Career Development colleagues out there, what one or two actions can YOU take to improve your organization’s client experience? You don’t have to solve all the issues at once – just one step at a time. If you are a front-line service professional, what single point above can you improve that would have the most impact? What are the barriers? How can those barriers be addressed? What is your next step?

If you are not be on the front lines – an administrator, executive or middle manager – what impacts do your policies, procedures and processes have on your front-line service providers and their ability to deliver GREAT service? How can you make it easier for your front-line staff to achieve some of the points above?

I would be amiss if I didn’t point out that Career Professionals of Canada is a great association that provides many of the professional development opportunities mentioned above for Career Development Practitioners – peer-mentorship, tele-conferences, forums, social networking, training, awards, career development resources and a members’ service directory. I highly recommend checking it out if you haven’t already! www.careerprofessionals.ca

TEDx Youth: For Students and Everyone Else – What Path Are You Paving For Yourself?

Here’s a TEDx Youth Talk for students that I think everyone should watch.

http://youtu.be/29tJAgc54RA

There are some great questions in this video for young people who are contemplating their post-secondary path…AND some good questions for the rest of us to ponder as well!

  • How well do you know yourself (your Personal Capital)?
  • What do you know (your Intellectual/Skill Capital)?
  • Who do you know and who knows you (your Social Capital)?
  • Who knows that you know what you know (how well do you “brand yourself” and communicate your “value proposition” to society, which leads to Financial Capital)?
  • What road are you paving for yourself?

Some quotes from this video:

“Your (college/university) MAJOR might not matter; get a MASTERS in SELF.” – know yourself!

Your degree is…”an INVESTMENT in your dream, not a GUARANTEE of a job.”

If you need help with figuring out your dream or your value proposition to society, or know someone else who needs help in these areas, this is what I do as a Career & Leadership Coach. I’d be happy to help!

Thankful for a Career Choice!….

Remembrance Day poppiesI wanted to take a brief moment to remember the fallen, the Veterans and those currently serving in the Armed Forces who have fought and sacrificed so that we can have freedom – freedom to vote, to speak, to worship, to live without fear,…and to choose what career path we walk on. Until today it had never struck me how our freedom to choose the career we want was won on the battle fields. It is easy to take for granted what we have – that we even have a choice in which career we pursue and that the concept of “meaningful work” even exists. So a special “Thank You” to those who have fought over the generations so that we can have these freedoms!

Canadian National War Monument - OttawaI want to encourage you to attend a Remembrance Day ceremony this year. I have the great privilege of living in Canada’s capital, where the official national Remembrance Day ceremony is held. It wasn’t until my daughters started singing in the choir that performs for the national ceremony that I was first so moved by the parade of Veterans – some of the Veterans walking frailly or being wheeled by in wheel chairs. As they pass by every year, the crowd starts heart-felt applause and shouts of “Thank you!” It’s at these ceremonies that it becomes real to me. Those battles and missions aren’t history book stories, but real experiences of real individuals taking on selfless, heroic responsibility for the sake of others. In the parade of Veterans, THESE are the ones who fought and who represent those who died for our freedoms. I’m usually fairly reserved and not very demonstrative, but I find myself uncharacteristically applauding loudly and shouting out “Thank you!” during the parade of Veterans. It’s a moving experience!

If you haven’t attended a Remembrance Day ceremony recently, I encourage you to attend one in your area, and in some meaningful way find a way of shouting out a “Thank You!” This year I was considering not attending the national ceremony because of a cold that I am recovering from; but then I was shamed thinking of the horrific conditions and situations that these men and women endured for us. So, okay, I’ll be there in spite of my minor symptoms! If you’re not able to make it out to one of the many ceremonies around the nation, you can look for me on CBC TV 10am ET; I’ll be in the crowd of several thousands at the National War Memorial…wearing a poppy…applauding loudly and shouting out “Thank you!”

Once again, “Thank you Vets and Armed Forces personnel!”

…3…2…1…Launching Your Dreams

Rocket Launch

I’m pleased to officially launch Cardinal Career Management Services! So the journey begins!…

Every great company, every great product, every great conquest starts with an idea. Before the first steps are taken, the concept is born. The idea then takes shape, is analyzed, is reshaped, analyzed again and eventually a plan is formed.

Many of us have great ideas, thoughts and dreams floating around in our heads, but when they are stalled in the ideas stage or the planning stage, we don’t even get off the launch pad. It is only when we EXECUTE the plan that our dreams take flight.

What stalls our ideas and dreams? Why do we tend to think and plan and dream, and then stop short of pursuing what we want? My wife has put a saying on the side of our pantry: “DOUBT kills more dreams than failure ever will”. Many of my clients have had great ideas, but also have had a difficult time getting past the doubt to pursue their dreams. I have stood in those shoes myself many times, so I understand the crippling power of doubt and fear.

Cardinal Career Management Services started with ideas…and doubts…and fears. What has helped me through the doubt and fear has been the support and encouragement of those who aren’t as affected by my fear as I am – objective, third-party, knowledgable individuals who I know have my best interests in mind. My wife, foremost, has been an incredible support through all my scary decisions. I’ve had a great professional support group through Career Professionals of Canada, which has provided seasoned, sound advice that I know I can trust. Without their support and encouragement, I know that I would still be sitting on the launching pad…if I would have even got that far.

1. What are your dreams and ideas for moving forward with your career? What ideas are floating around in your head? They may be good ideas or maybe not-so-good ideas, but what are they? Get them down on paper or record them somewhere.

2. Who is your support network? Your support network can provide some good objective perspective regarding the feasibility of your ideas. They likely can help come up with additional ideas as well!

3. What is the plan? If your idea survives your support group, then what? You don’t have to chart out the whole course, but at least know what the next steps are.

4. What are you going to DO about it? A theme that you will see throughout my blogs, my website and my coaching practice is, “From ideas to action”. That’s the scary part – taking the risk to hit the launch button – but it’s also the exhilerating part too. By stepping out with proper planning, due diligence and support, you will discover that you are capable of much more than you feared! You will grow both personally and professionally!

So I encourage you to think about your ideas and dreams, seek support, create a plan…and ACT!

If you need help implementing your career plans or executing a job search, give me a call. I can give you a quick assessment of how I can help. I’d be happy to be part of your support system!
