career success

On the April 12, 2015 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I'll describe 12 things that make employers want to get rid of an employee. These distill what my many manager/leader clients have said to me over the years in the confidentiality of my office. I'll also offer some easier-to-implement ways to improve your time management. Plus, you can call in for a Workover: Whatever career problem is besetting you or someone you care about, I can usually help.

On the April 5, 2015 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, my wife, Barbara Nemko and I will say  what we'd do to help ensure our success if we were starting over.

Plus, you can call in for a Workover. Whatever career misery ails you or someone you care about, we can usually help.

Guilt at Work

Jan 27, 2013

Many people feel guilt about what they've done or didn't do in their worklife: from knowing teammates will pick up their slack to guilt-tripping a romantic partner into earning all the income. And then there's lying on a resume or stealing from your employer: exaggerating hours billed for, padding expense accounts, taking sick days so you can see the Giants play, fooling around on the Internet for a couple hours at work, etc.

I will have made five presentations during the Commonwealth Club's month on The Future of Work. In the Sep. 2, 2012 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I distill those presentations into one hour on:

  • under-the-radar careers for 2013 and beyond
  • ahead-of-the-pack strategies for landing a good job
  • not-obvious strategies for getting ahead (or at least not laid off)
  • how to beat the odds against successful self-employment.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard Sundays from 11 am to noon on KALW, 91.7 FM, San Francisco.
