Getting Your License | Career Angles

When we learn to drive in the United States, we receive a learner’s permit with limitation about when and where you can drive. Usually, a learner has to drive with an adult who has a license; in my state, they can’t be on the road after a particular hour and, even after they pass their driver’s test, there are restrictions on what they can do for a year.

My son was 16 when he passed his driver’s test and often I would go out on the road with him. He made mistakes. He would drive slower than he should; sometimes, he would stay in the left lane after passing and, of course, there was the speeding ticket.

But, after a while we (and he) learned his lessons and started driving without us in the car and did very well. You can see the lessons he learned and how he has internalized them. He’s anxious about some things but he does darn well.

Many of us work as though we only have a learner’s permit. What’s keeping you from taking your road test, getting your license and heading down the road?

Becoming an Expert | Career Angles

We are in a world of experts who know very little but have hired people who have elevated them into expert and success status. They run organizations and they create change all from the vantage point of being seen as the expert at what they do and what they have done. What can you do to launch yourself as an expert?

  1. Write articles. Writing articles doesn’t always have to be in major publications (although it helps). You can write from LinkedIn and sharing with your connections, with the public, and in groups. Google indexes LinkedIn articles very well. Get yourself to write at least once per month.
  2. Host a podcast. Podcasting is very easy these days. You can host a podcast on anchor.FM and have it automatically uploaded to Apple podcasts, Spotify and other platforms. You can do a monologue for a few minutes weekly or host a show where you interview someone. It is pretty easy to get guests.
  3. Create video for YouTube. You may not be the most handsome or attractive person on the planet but you know something. Talk to the camera but use a real microphone.
  4. Speak to small groups. Speaking to a group and having the group or you promote the engagement online, done over time, will put you in the position of Google finding you and your expertise for people looking for someone like you.
  5. Write and self-publish a book. Amazon makes publishing easy. Think about your expertise as well as stories to relate to your successes. Get to work!
  6. Be interviewed on TV, podcasts and elsewhere. There are so many platforms available and so many people hosting shows who need experts to speak with in order to fill their schedule. Reach out to them.
  7. Speak at a conference. Present at the conference. Your expertise can translate very well in front of an in-person audience. The first time I did this I remember being nervous as I walked out on stage but once I got past a first few minutes, I perform like the All-Star that I am. The same thing will happen to you to. Before doing this, go to a few Toastmasters meetings, join and get involved. Practice speaking there in front of a supportive (and small) audience.

Start small. Work your way up. Don’t stop. Make the time. The more senior you are the more important it is to demonstrate your expertise and have it easily found by the people you want to attract.

Start now.

What You Can Learn About Career Management from Kitchen Nightmares | Career Angles


Because my son is starting at a culinary arts school in NYC, I’ve started to watch some shows and found that fascinating. Every episode of Kitchen Nightmares is the same AND provides great lessons for you and managing your career.

Summary

My son is starting culinary school and, thus, I've started to pay more attention to some of the cooking shows on TV. One is an old series apparently called "Kitchen Nightmares" where Gordon Ramsay goes into different restaurants that are having problems. Let me dissect the plotline of every episode.
A terrible restaurant. No people in the seats. Food is awful. Chef in the restaurant doesn't know what he or she is doing. I've only seen "he's" so far but I'm sure there'll be some female chefs that are involved. The places are mismanaged. The owners don't know what they're doing. Ramsay walks in, calls attention to all the problems, comes up with a simplified way of addressing the menu and packs the place in one way or another and they go off happily. Now, so far every restaurant I've watched has since closed but that's not important to the story.
What's important to the story from a career management standpoint . . . you are the amateur here, just like the owners of these restaurants are really amateurs. They don't know what they're doing. They allow themselves . . . I don't want to say they get taken advantage of, but they're being taken advantage of by people who don't care as much as they do about the success. They give away their power to everyone in the restaurant. Suddenly they're going through a crisis where they're losing a lot of money and close to closing,
Think about your career for a sec. Who's the amateur here? You! You're dealing with people who are professionals. The professionals can be the recruiters that you're dealing with you; you change jobs once every couple of years. Even if you're a consultant that changes once every couple of months, by comparison, experienced recruiters are handling job changes all the time,
With regard to what I see on the show, time and again, people make it too hard on themselves, or they surrender their power to the so called expert. The expert takes advantage of the situation. This starting to sound a little familiar? Even in your current workplace, you give away your power to the people who are running the organization to look out for you. Instead of managing your own career. This is where it keeps breaking down for people.
You need to take charge of your career, talk to people who are further along, bring in experts to help you. Like I don't claim to be an engineer and to have the knowledge of an engineer, but I know how to help people be more effective in the workplace, in a job change, with hiring and a couple of other areas. So, if the issues a skills issue, you look for a way of simplifying sit o you get down to a core element.
For most of you, that's not going to be the factor. The factor is everything around the process of career management. You don't have a lot of knowledge and you don't make the time to learn anything. You don't make the time to ask for advice hence, why I'm calling you an amateur.
Don't act like the folks on these shows. Act like professionals do. Whether you hire a coach like me, or you've talked to people just from the standpoint of understanding how your career could go, Don't just talk to two people and think you've got it all mastered. Do it continuously.
Talk to people who are further on, further along in their careers than you about how they got there. Talk to leaders, talk to people who are just four years ahead of you and do it regularly. Make a point every other month, every third month, to have an appointment set up for the rest of your career. I know it sounds overwhelming.
Do you know what's more overwhelming? When you wind up doing crap work because your boss doesn't really care and just assigns it to you. Or your ownership starts passing you over because they start to take you for granted and you haven't really done anything to network. Continue to network and start planning for your future. Don't be like the folks on Kitchen Nightmares act like a pro instead of an amateur.

Bad Managers and Good Employees | Career Angles

The statement is often made that good employees don’t leave bad companies. They leave bad managers.

Who said they were a good company?

The financial press?

Their PR department who is there for no other purpose than to promote how wonderful they are?

Your friends?

Your colleagues?

Your neighbors?

I know. Your parents decided for you that they were a good company.

Here is a fact.

That company, its people and its systems hired that person and put them in the position to manage you. They do a lot of incompetent things. Don’t believe me?

Here’s a list of services Google has shut down.

Facebook Failures

Fines imposed upon Goldman Sachs and its business units

 

Those look like a lot of failures!

Why do we think of them as good companies given how much they fail?

Stop thinking of good companies except as a brand that advantages you Everything else is BS.

Stop Comparing Yourself With Others | Career Angles

I visited someone’s home yesterday. It was high on a mountain with beautiful views, large and fitting its environment beautifully. As large and lovely as my own house is, mine looked far less opulent than this one did AND he is going to add on to it!

At work, I know I would compare myself to others there.

Her sales for the month were better than mine.

His client is more active than mine.

On and on, I would make comparisons that concluded with me being inferior to others.

Comparing yourself with others doesn’t make you happier. Usually, it makes you less happy.

You need to give everything you’ve got for yourself . . . for yourself and not make the comparisons. They are irrelevant.

The Culture of Negativity | Career Angles

When I used to work for a particular search firm, management used to start every staff meeting like the Seinfeld episode about “Festivus (if you haven’t seen it, find it online)” with the airing of the grievances.

Once I learned that this was how every meeting would begin, I made the point of arriving late. Who would want to sit through that?

Even when they tried to change (at my urging) to talk about one or two good things that had happened, the meeting quickly shifted into collective criticism. It was as though the praise was given with an enormous “BUT” in the conference room. Like a chopped meat blend, it was 1/3 complimentary and 2/3 criticism. We took the compliments as insincere. Collectively, we stopped listening.

 If every meeting has the airing of the grievances, people feel like old horses being whipped. Eventually, their spirit is broken and management wonders why ideas stop flowing from the bottom up, mistakes become more frequent and the business/office/team/business unit takes on an air of negativity.

Stupid Career Mistakes: Read The Tea Leaves at Work | JobSearchTV.com


Follow Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter on Facebook
http://www.facebook.com/NoBSCoachingAdvice

So many people ignore the obvious and then think they are the victim when they chose to ignore the teal leaves

Summary

I've been coaching someone for not all that long and he just described a situation to me at work and I just want to hit them. I'll just simply say, "that's my stuff," because I've listened to this same story in different forms many many times. Here's what he's gone through. Him him him
He works for an organization. A new manager comes on. Now, this guy's reviews have all been extremely good. Everyone says positive things about him. New manager comes on. Starts hiring his own team of people from his last organization and this guy's just forced to hunker down. He's trying real hard.
It's kind of like in the restaurant business. You know, a new the owner is going to come in and suddenly the restaurant staff is in a frenzy. They are all trying to put on a good show for the owner who runs multiple restaurants and you pause for a second and go, "If you're worried about the restaurant, close."
Your performance on this one day, is it going to make a difference? The decision's already been made. Well, the same thing exists here. If, regardless of the person's performance, that decisions already been made. What he chose to do is hunker down and do a good job and not really focus on the relationship with his boss or with the fact that his boss was hiring people that he already knows.
So, I just want to point out to you some of the insanity that many of us do, and I know I've made this mistake myself. It's part of the reason I can recognize this and, you know, I learned my lesson years ago about this.
The first thing you have to do really is pay attention to your relationship with the boss. Even in an existing organization where there has been no change in your relationship with your manager is really pivotal because they dictate whether or not should get the plum assignments, whether you get support and moving up, moving ahead, things along those lines, If they are trying to hire from the outside,it is an indicator there that you don't really have a future here and, thus, it's time to start looking. at. So, always focus on your relationship with your manager.
Also think in terms of those, your manager does your managers manager think of you, as the expert experts often are seen as indispensable?
I always think in terms of what can you do to present yourself as "world class." Now the notion of being world class can't suddenly start when you feel threatened. You have to always think in terms of your organization and how you're perceived. How you're seen .
As a result, to not see yourself in that way, you're leaving yourself vulnerable or because if you don't see it, they sure don't.
Then, you have to ask yourself a question. The question really is, "why should we keep you?" What is it about your performance that makes you unique in the organization . . . and it's not just to simply say, "I'm a good worker, I'm always there on time. . . . and words to that effect. There are a lot of good employees out there who will also be there on time. What can you do that's special? What makes you world class and distinguishes you from others? If you can't answer that question, you are dispensable and it's no surprise that this individual who I coach suddenly finds himself on the outside.
And, really the only thing that you can do at a time like this is start hunkering down. And then go to your boss and say, "I've got to apologize to you. I've been off my game for a little while. But if you haven't noticed, I feel like a back again, and giving you the kind of effort and results that you've been expecting. I apologize for this period of time. I've had some struggles outside of work, and I took it out in the workplace. But, at the end of the day, I just want you to know I'm back and I hope I could resolve these things."
Back to the initial thing about reading the tea leaves at work, you have to notice how you're being seen. You have to notice what's going on around you. All you can really do is your best. And once you start to notice that these things are going on around you, you have to be out there networking to try and find alternative situations where you're appreciated.
Again, someone I coached recently works for a small firm in the city I live in, and he's been frustrated at work. He's tried working hard, it hasn't really worked and you start to reach out to people who've already left this firm and got to someone who has already found a position, introduced him for a role and he starts in a week.
Remember, statistically, your network is always going to be the place where you're going to get the results. It may not be directly from them, and that they may not be the ones who hire you, but they may introduce you to someone who will be the one who hires you. So I just want to remind you to pay attention to the signals around and, yes, you want to be putting in great work but don't ignore what's going on and ensure . . .
The classic example is the person who eats at their desk. They never go out to lunch. They never talk to people in other departments. They never talk to people outside the organization. As a result, when they're suddenly let go in situations like I outlined, they're completely unprepared. There's no resume. No up to date LinkedIn profile. No network in place to help.
You don't want to be caught short like this. You've got to pay attention to all the tea leaves at work and all the signals that are going in and take action to protect your interest. After all, you're the Chairman of the Board of your organization. You have shareholders--Your wife, husband, partner. Kids whomever, you are a corporate entity in and of yourself and you have to protect your show shareholders.

Developing Authority at Work | Career Angles

There are so many ways that people allow themselves to be seen as small, rather than enormous. Every time you present yourself as small, you signal that you are not worthy or deserving.

Here are three ways to start stepping up and commanding more respect.

  1. Expect to and ask for more information. Many businesses conduct themselves like my family did when I was growing up—The House of Secrets. They relinquish information on a need to know basis and grudgingly. Start to ask for what you need. If you are asked why you need to know, answer, “It affects what I’m doing.” “How?” Then stare at them for a full five seconds. “In the amount of time this discussion has been going on, I could have received what I needed and moved on back to work. If I’m missing data, I may not connect the dots you want me to connect and miss things because you tried to keep a secret.” Then ask your question again. Slowly. Softly. No anger. Firmly.
  2. Build alliances and relationships at work. Network up and not across or down. Create positive impressions with leaders and never EVER complain. You are at worst trying to figure something out.
  3. Drive revenue. People who make rain have more clout than people who are an expense. Figure out how what you do helps your firm make or save money

Easier | Career Angles

We all claim to want to do things easier and then take on jobs where we don’t ask for or receive support.

“It will be easier if I do it myself,” we rationalize to ourselves.

LIAR!

Is doing it forever really easier?

We sometimes persuade others of this lie we tell ourselves but it isn’t true.

Figuring things out on our own is “a time suck,” a way that we cheat ourselves out of portions of our life. Our improvement at work is limited because our time is occupied with tasks we can offload.

I did a video about time management where I pointed out that what we need to do is focus on our highest priorities each day and that the things that land on our desk from others is usually someone else’s less important priority that they are offloading to you.

Things can be much easier if you focus and work with others collaboratively.

There is no need to make excuses.

Just do it.
