Suppose you don’t have any LinkedIn recommendations that showcase who you are and what you do. In that case, you are missing an opportunity for your network, along with recruiters and hiring managers, to know you better.  One of the biggest mistakes I see when looking at LinkedIn profiles is that people aren’t giving enough recommendations to people in their network! We should only provide recommendations for people with who we have an in-depth knowledge of their work and can communicate where they add value.  In this episode, I will show you why you need to be writing more LinkedIn recommendations to serve your network better and why those recommendations will make you stand out better to more recruiters and hiring managers.  Key Topics & Time Stamps: ·      Introduction (0:05)·      Personal Update (1:08)·      Book – Your Mid-Career GPS (1:46)·      The Purpose of LinkedIn Recommendations (3:12)·      You Must Approve All Recommendations (4:48)·      How Recommendations Serve Your Network (6:12)·      How Recruiters and Hiring Managers Use LinkedIn Recommendations (9:35)·      Give Five to Get Five (13:45) List of Resources:·      Your Mid-Career GPS – Four Steps to Figuring Out What’s Next by John Neral·      SHOW UP - Six Strategies to Lead a More Energetic and Impactful Career by John Neral Calls to Action: ·      Get your free Mid-Career GPS Resources that include a job search tracker and reflection questions at https://johnneral.com. ·      Join the “Your Mid-Career GPS Private Facebook Group” here and be part of a fantastic group of like-minded professionals navigating their career paths just like you. ·      Get notified when new podcast episodes drop.

If you’ve watched Shark Tank, you know that entrepreneurs pitch their products to a panel of experts, hoping that someone will invest in them and their product. Pitching comes from a place of want. And while that works great in the Shark Tank, it’s not the best move to pitch when it comes to your career.  Throughout my career and coaching my clients, I know that coming from a place of value and service will help you exponentially accelerate your career to achieve your goals. While many heart-centered leaders and professionals struggle with pitching, I want to offer you a better way.  In this episode, I’m teaching you how to create your “Unique Professional Value Statement.” You’ll use this statement to help you communicate how you can help someone based on your expertise and do it without feeling as if you are bragging or boasting about how great you are.  Key Topics & Time Stamps: ·      Introduction (0:00)·      April Book Deal (1:50)·      Why Do We Pitch?

You don’t like your boss. It frustrates you that you HAVE to work for them. You believe they are blocking your career, and you don’t like going to work every day. You wish you worked for someone else, or you wish you just worked somewhere else – and could move on so you never have to work with this horrible person again.  Every time they open their mouth, you want to cringe. You loathe opening an email from them. They don’t care about people. You find them to be cold-hearted and insensitive. You wish they would leave, or you would go first.  To be clear, any boss or person, for that matter, who is harassing, bullying, or discriminating against any of their employees should not be tolerated and immediately reported. If that is the case, you have every reason to hate them, but that is not the topic of this episode.   Not liking your boss is a normal part of your career journey. You will have an opportunity to work for many people, and it’s only natural that you will like some of them, and not like others. But if you feel as if your boss doesn’t like you, won’t promote you, or is always shutting you down, I’m going to share with you a few tips and tricks to help you navigate these tumultuous or contentious relationships with your boss or supervisor so you can SHOW UP at your best and never let them beat you down again. Key Topics & Time Stamps: ·      So, You Don’t Like Your Boss (0:08)·      Can You Help Me?

Mary Jo Rathgeb's successful 30-year career in media marketing saw her at companies like Playboy and Disney, but always knew it wasn’t where she would stay. Mary Jo focused on her career while transferring her skills, leveraging her strengths, and finding ways to contribute and add value.  When Mary Jo’s husband passed away in his early 40s, she found herself at a pivotal point in her career. She wanted to help people through significant life transitions and events – even death.  Today, Mary Jo is a 5x contributing author, speaker, and coach who helps people learn to accept and value themselves – the good, the bad, and the ugly – so they are free to be who they are -- not someone they think they are supposed to be. While I was going through my coach training, Mary Jo Rathgeb was my success coach. I wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for her thoughtful and intuitive coaching.
