Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin I've been stuck at the same level for the past 8 years and would love to learn how to push beyond that and be considered for roles at the next level (both internally and externally). I often am pursued by recruiters for roles that I've done in the past, which makes me believe that the work I am showcasing on LinkedIn and my resume is not reflective of where I want to go. – Rebecca, tech lead 1 – Stop worrying about your resume and LinkedIn profile (till Step 4) In general, your best bet for growth in the immediate term is your current employer, rather than some outside recruiter discovering you. You do want an updated resume and optimized LinkedIn profile that showcases your potential and gives prospective employers enough compelling information that they’ll want to talk to you. But these documents are just a start in a long vetting process for senior roles. As a first step, get your current employment … [Read more...] about 5 Steps To Take When Your Career Has Stopped Growing

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Quick quitting is becoming a fast-growing trend, according to LinkedIn’s new Workforce Report . The data from LinkedIn indicates that workers in the United States are leaving their jobs after only being with the company for a short stint of time. Many are quitting in just under a year. Silicon Valley is well-known for people switching jobs quickly, as the tech hub has the highest employee turnover rate . Workers in this dynamic sector learn as much as possible, forge new relationships, move on to other roles elsewhere and repeat this process multiple times. As they move around, they earn more money with each job switch, build more extensive networks and learn new skills that empower them to grow faster than their peers who remain at the company for long periods. LinkedIn’s report shows that Silicon Valley isn’t an isolated phenomenon. People in an array of other industries, such as the arts, recreation, media … [Read more...] about ‘Quick Quitting’ Could Offer More Money And Faster Career Growth
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Dreamers and visionaries launch companies and disrupt industries. Well-run, enduring businesses need execution, efficiency and resiliency. The personality types most apt to accomplish each are often polar opposites. Elon Musk seized headlines and re-ignited an old debate when he joined the long list of entrepreneurs questioning the value of the MBA . Since I am a business school professor, you may think that I would disagree. I do, but not for the expected reasons. Musk’s point holds for corporate culture, but collapses at the function level, especially IT. The problem with Corporate America is not the MBA, it’s entrenched functional expertise. Too many big company employees are specialists still stuck in status quo silos. Technology, not technologists, will drive the future of the business. That’s exactly why CIOs, in particular, need more MBAs on their teams. Competencies, not credentials Well-trained … [Read more...] about CIOs, Ignore Elon Musk. Here’s Why MBAs Are Invaluable To Your Teams.

Today, GHOST is one of the fastest growing brands in the industry across a multitude of categories. I sat down with Dan and Ryan to learn about their unique approach to brand building and how GHOST convinced brands like Chips Ahoy to work with them early on. Dave Knox: What is GHOST and how are you different than other sports nutrition products on the market?

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Amazon recently announced plans to more than double its maximum base pay for corporate and tech employees from $160,000 to $350,000. Those higher salaries, coupled with lucrative stock and bonus compensation, keep pace with fellow tech titans and ratchet up the pressure on other industries desperate for IT talent. Many c-suites reflexively blame staffing shortcomings on tech leaders’ prestige and the allure of innovation hubs such as Silicon Valley and Austin, Texas. In reality, there’s ample talent — it’s rudderless digital transformation HR strategy that’s the problem. Chasing pay premiums inevitably proves futile. Rather, to remain competitive, companies must devise and implement cohesive human capital plans that address board governance, executive leadership capabilities and frontline resource needs. Boardroom focus Serious tech talent strategies start with board composition and oversight.

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Digital transformation has topped corporate agendas in recent years. However, unanticipated costs, delays and underperformance leave many boards quietly wondering whether these projects are really more hype than help. KPMG’s 2022 Global Tech Report surveyed over 2,200 executives and found that digital transformation adopters are quickly bifurcating into leaders and laggards. Executives expressed high confidence in capitalizing on IT investments, with two-thirds of respondents characterizing their organizations as either “extremely or very effective at using tech to advance their business strategies.” Yet, to date, only 7% reported profitability or performance improvements of 11% or better. When asked about the drivers of the tepid ROI, talent and culture concerns far outranked traditional tech success barriers such as funding and technical debt. That’s why digital transformation needs compelling and … [Read more...] about KPMG Survey Pinpoints Digital Transformation’s Fatal Flaws — Talent Gaps And Stubborn Culture

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Shutterstock Law is seldom associated with entrepreneurs. Lawyers are a cautious bunch focused on precedent, risk containment, and tend to be reactive—not innovative. Entrepreneurs are a different breed. They create new business models in response to market voids, deploying risk capital to achieve customer satisfaction and scale. Entrepreneurs require passion, knowledge, vision, process, resources, expertise, execution, results, performance metrics, constant improvement, collaboration, transparency, scalability, and access to capital. A raft of entrepreneurs is entering the legal space. They are tapping into latent demand for access to legal services as well as expertise-differentiated, efficient, cost-effective, predictive, digitized, and scalable legal products and services for corporate legal buyers. Entrepreneurs are melding legal, technological, and process expertise—and capital—to reengineer legal delivery … [Read more...] about The Golden Age of The Legal Entrepreneur — Why Now and Why It Matters
