The 15-Minute-a-Day Habit That…

If you’re interested in an easy way to improve your job performance and boost your career, it’s time to start a writing habit. from Harvard Business School tested whether taking 15 minutes at the end of a work day to reflect on that day’s work improved their performance and found the participants tasked with daily written reflection did 22.8 percent better on an assessment than the control group. But wouldn’t internal reflection by itself be enough to bolster performance? “My speculation would be that writing things down would be more beneficial as the act of writing imposes a discipline on us to stay focused,” says paper co-author , an associate professor of operations at the University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School. Reflection forced people to process their days, find patterns and link actions. Some people might think the experiment focused on the successes of the day, but Staats says the parameters of the experiment when explained to the journaling employees didn’t specify giving the reflections a positive or negative slant. “What we wanted was for them to reflect more on whatever they thought was most important from the day,” Staats explains. “The positive/negative point is a great question, but not one we looked at here. In other research, Francesca and I have explored how individuals struggle to learn from failure, but when they accept internal responsibility for their actions..

5 Signs You'd Make…

It takes a little something extra to be a manager, and not everybody has it. If you’re thinking about moving up the ladder at your organization, see if you have any of these five signs that you’d make a great boss. You’re there for people. If you feel you can stand up for your team, that can serve you well as a boss, says Dave Popple, president of Corporate Insights. A good boss will “focus on employees first, customers second,” he says. “If the majority of what the boss says is focused on customers and sales and little is said about employees, they will not stand in the gap for their employees when things get stressful and the best employees will leave.” You're observant. The best leaders prevent problems, says Kathleen Brush, and to prevent problems, you have to be observant. “An employee fidgeting while giving an update that Project X 
is on schedule, an employee that gives an update on a project that is inconsistent with past updates, a sales person that is very confident of a needed sale that doesn't add up with other available data are all indicators that deserve follow up -- now.” Leaders who accept the reports that there isn’t a problem even when the evidence says otherwise won’t succeed for long. “Someone who is observant and follows up on what they have seen and..

3 Ways Your Personal…

Quick: What does your personal brand say about you? If you can’t answer this question quickly, then you aren’t in control of your brand and it could be harming your career. “But,” you’re saying to yourself, “I don’t have a brand! I’m just me!” Wrong. If you haven’t been consciously developing your personal brand, then you’ve been unconsciously developing one that you may -- or may not -- like. Your personal brand is the sum total of your appearance, demeanor, professionalism, the way you treat your friends and coworkers, and the way you present yourself online. If you come to work looking schlubby, are constantly complaining of a headache, and your Facebook wall is nothing but drinking photos, your personal brand is that you’re a party animal. If you come to work polished, actively participate in projects with co-workers, and constantly tweet relevant industry articles and pictures from conferences, your brand is that you are confident and interested in your industry. Which of those people do you think gets promoted? If you’re not sure which employee you’re more like, consider these three ways your personal brand could be hurting your career. You Have an Overly Crazy or Critical Online Image “Nearly 80 percent of employers Google an applicant's name at the start of the evaluation process,” says Mary Rigali, director of career services at . What they find when they..
