Concerned about the habit gaps in your life and career?

Want to build a habit? Great.

Want to kill a habit that has been slowing you down or harming you? Great.

#career #law #eLearning #lawsikho #habits
You need to understand how habit gets created and how they are perpetuated once the behavior is learned at the level of a habit.

It all starts with some kind of awareness.

Let’s say it’s a cigarette addiction. How is it going to start? I can speak from personal experience.
The first trigger is the awareness and the universal availability of cigarettes. Being aware of the existence of cigarettes is easy. Everyone knows. Cigarette companies make sure of that, through all sorts of promotional activities.

Do you know that many recent graduates with exceptional grades may still struggle to obtain entry-level jobs because of a lack of portfolios full of the right skill sets and lack marketable abilities?

#CareerTalkWithDrAddy
Recently, I started my mentorship program and 90% of the participants have clear concerns about how to map out a successful career from their degrees. In other cases, they have questions on how to get successful careers out of their current jobs...

#CareerTalkWithDrAddy
...as they don’t feel fulfilled or don’t think they are making a good living. 

During my visit to Toronto in August, I sat with an old friend from my University of Saskatchewan days who literarily burst into tears while explaining the fears of her degrees not being enough...

Late Last year, i took personal charge of preparing CVs for my fiancee and applying for jobs on her behalf. I even did the online exams on her behalf. Her mails were linked to my phones. She just get emails and is like "What is this about biko"
And i say "Nne you have an interview, Here is your brief" Sometimes i even drive her to the venues. The bag must be secured. Finally, she got three offers.. and she decided to follow the Corporate Sales Career Path. Apparently i had to allow her follow her dream
Now she earns pratically more than me, she has been to places where i have never ever been and events where i only attend in my imagination. Sometimes, All we need to do is to stick our neck out for those we love.

IBM is accused of firing older workers. This is really about money - and doesn't just apply to IBM. Many companies sneakily create practices, communications & policies (like not subsidizing family health coverage)to discourage hiring older workers.

Age discrimination is especially common in #tech, where appearing "cool" carries a premium for recruiting top grads & younger talent.

In most careers, there comes an inflection point where junior employees can do the same job (or ~80% of it) for way less.

Sadly, to companies we're no more than "human resources," so employees must make themselves indispensable, esp. as their salaries creep up.

How?

1) Develop a unique expertise: be known for it. Could be anything from a coding language to ideas generation to great #design.

One question I often get to answer from early career professionals with keen interest for #HR is;

How can I develop myself to start a #career in HR?

I'll share briefly.

Skills & knowledge to develop to kick-start a career in #HumanResource.

A THREAD! #careeradvice
I believe what I'll be sharing will be relevant to you, whether you’re kickstarting your career in #HR or you’re a seasoned HR professional.

I'll share some of the most important HR skills and offer advice on how to cultivate them. #careeradvice
Averagely, there is a common misconception that HR professionals are often unprofessional and tend to abuse power - as much as I don't align with this, I believe those that have been culpable represent themselves and not the profession.

#HR is one of the best careers to pursue.

"Did you ever sit down and plan your #career?"

If I ever did, it didn’t go to plan. I did well at school and university because I didn’t realise not doing well was an option. After university there was a moment - when you’re meant to use your degree to get a serious #job ...
with a big company - and I just didn’t. I did a masters in political philosophy, went to New York, moved to Paris, got a taste for not living in England and then moved to Berlin. I was doing odd jobs along the way to pay rent. I worked in shops selling bacon
sandwiches. I worked for a Royal silversmith in London. As a student I studied politics but worked as a classical singer for the BBC. Arriving in Berlin, I did English interviews for German publications and was writing, translating and working for magazines. I left Berlin

[Short Thread] So I just went to drop my car off for a service, then jumped in the courtesy bus to get a lift back home.

The guy looked like he was having a bad day so what did I do?
I told him a few jokes to break the ice, then he started telling me about his son & where he's taking his #career.

His whole mood completely flipped up on it's head as we drove through the city - it was incredible!

So how can you take this into your life? Well..
Instead of always making things about yourself, let OTHERS speak.

Analyse how people think, then give value

See I took the time to listen to him & it literally turned his day around - that's what really makes a difference - just listen to people and let them tell their story 🎉

It's time for my 2018 #design recap! Less writing, more @ideaplatz speaking and podcasts, and a job transition to boot. I expanded my public talks to include not just VUI but conversational UI, artificial intelligence, and improv for creativity. Here's my year... 1/
My first 2018 post was aimed at #VUI #design job seekers. Rather than reply to a series of 1:1 inquiries, I look for patterns to inspire published pieces. A VERY common question: "Any tips for my Amazon/Google/etc voice design interview?" #voiceFirst medium.com/@muppetaphrodi… 2/
In February 2018, I had the honor (+challenge!) of following @MrAlanCooper on the #Ixd18 mainstage. In my early days on the #EchoLook, I daydreamed about speaking to @ixdconf attendees about that product #design process. A literal #ux dream come true. 3/ vimeo.com/254533851

I wanted to share my experience on an important topic that I have been asked about a few times, organizational mobility for career advancement.

#mentoring #career
What I mean is joining an organization in one role (maybe not your ideal one) with the idea of moving internally to a better role over time.
If you are looking to transition to a new role, this can be a viable approach. I am not saying it will work for everyone, but it was my story and one I have seen over and over.

Let's start our #GEMChats this week. The topic of this week is #student #entrepreneurship!

We'll discuss these three factors in the poll options below as well as replies to the poll 🧐🧐🧐 Let's take this forward!
#Students? And #entrepreneurship? Is that even a good combination?

Especially when you read that the famous student entrepreneurs like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg are all dropouts!!!

Can students not only run a #business while studying but also be #successful at it?
Taking a different perspective at this is that while these billionaires are college dropouts, the #idea for the #business all came about when they were in #college! As a young #student, your ideas have a chance at being fresh and can be developed through stringent planning!

YOU WILL HAVE MORE THAN ONE IDEA | I spoke to a young man recently about a business deal. He was more concerned about the money he would make than the opportunities he would gain. #Thread #Ideas #Entrepreneurship #Career
Sometimes when I talk to entrepreneurs, they seem obsessed with people stealing their ideas. They assume they will have only one good idea in life. They think a single deal will be their only source of prosperity.
Employees do the same. They hold on to jobs desperately. Some embezzle funds because they are not confident of another chance to "hammer".

Twelve years of trying to grok #strengths approach and helping others apply it to their #career situations has taught a few things that others seem to miss or be misled by other flavors so here is a thread
I like to call it the Buckingham-Gallup strengths approach as elucidated in two books: Now Discover Your Strengths (NDYS) and Go Put Your Strengths to Work (GPYSTW)
I am not super-impressed by the credentialing around this by Gallup or other variants from Marcus. There are two other flavors that are very different and not as useful for career thinking
