Here We Go!

It’s a new year. I have to admit that I get a little “down” this time of year. The holidays are over (my favorite time of the year) and now things are starting up all over again. This down feeling has sometimes caused me to delay getting things moving forward as much as I should. Then the next thing I know, I’m behind on getting all the things I need to get done, which leads me to feel even more out of it. It’s an unwelcome cycle that I have decided will not happen to me this year.   ... Read more

INTJ: Words or phrases that best describe each MBTI® type

16-part blog series by Catherine Rains, M.S., CPP Professional Services Solutions Consultant. Over the next 16 weeks, I’m going to share some of the descriptors the participants shared with me for their own type.

Most people would agree that the most comprehensive and accurate definition of each the 16 types is published in the Introduction to Type® booklet. But suppose you didn’t have time to read a full-page description of someone’s type, or wanted the “CliffsNotes” list of a type’s characteristics?     Read previous blogs here.   ... Read more

Techology … the Next CFO Responsibility?

Should CFOs yield the technology responsibilities that come with making faster data-driven decisions to a new C-suite officer? Or, does the Finance Leader need to own that decision-making process? Is there room at the executive table for another C-suite executive … and enough financial bandwidth to cover another executive compensation package?     ... Read more

You Have Something to Say…Say it!

Some people LOVE to network. It’s natural to them. These extroverts thrive on meeting new people, traveling to new places, and engaging in storytelling. Communicating with others fills up their energy tanks. Others look at networking as a burden. Or maybe you are just an introvert that deals with people all day and wants the peace and quiet of solitude after work. You know networking is the right thing to do for your career, even if you aren’t looking for a new job. You get the importance of building relationships for the long-term, but prioritizing these actions hasn’t been, well…a priority. For those of you in the second camp, there’s another approach to getting yourself out there.
