    E14 – 3 Steps to Start Overcoming Impostor Syndrome

    E14 – 3 Steps to Start Overcoming Impostor Syndrome

    In a society where humility is mostly key, and where most corporate cultures tend to overindex on their employees’ development areas and shortcomings, celebrating successes becomes harder and harder. It’s especially difficult considering that the nature of the brain has a preference for remembering the bad things over the good ones…

    When all of this culminates, some of us are prone to experiencing extreme low self-esteem and the feeling of utter incompetence. This phenomenon has been coined as the Impostor Syndrome by researchers in 1978 and has been studied ever since.

    What sounds like a bad ailment is fortunately just a counter-productive mindset. In other words: it’s a mindset that can be changed! In today’s episode I’d like to propose 3 easy tips to help you with restoring your self-confidence and overcoming Impostor Syndrome.

    E13 – Successfully kickstart any Recruitment Process (for Recruiters & Hiring Managers)

    E13 – Successfully kickstart any Recruitment Process (for Recruiters & Hiring Managers)

    Personally, I could spend hours talking about the all the right ways to unearth talent as a corporate recruiter, or about how to best approach candidates, and how to get them sold on a new job opportunity. But all this technical know-how wouldn’t even mean a thing to the best talent hunter on the planet if they don’t really know what profile they are looking for and if the value proposition of the role they are hiring for is unclear.

    Whether you are a recruiter or a hiring manager – both experienced or new to hiring – you must understand that preparation is half the battle. And there’s nothing better for kicking off a successful recruiting process than a state-of-the-art in-take meeting (aka: briefing meeting or kick-off meeting). This will clearly determine the organization’s setup and hiring needs, and help you establish a strong sourcing (and selling) strategy from the get-go.

    So to find out exactly how to set the foundations for any upcoming recruitment processes, and how to structure a good intake meeting, just give this new episode a go!

    E12 - High Achiever? Stop Self-Sabotaging! (with Vikki Louise)

    If you’ve ever told yourself things like "Now’s not the right time for that" or "I’ll never be good enough", then this episode with Anxiety & Procrastination Coach and Time Hacker Vikki Louise will be perfect for you! Vikki is helping people to regain back control when their biggest enemy (their own brain) is bringing them down and keeping them from achieving their goals.

    In this episode, we’ll talk about Vikki’s career and her coaching program, but also about anxiety, guilt, impostor syndrome and the very paralyzing fear of failing. Those are some very common traits that high-achievers are exhibiting when the stakes are high both professionally and personally. And all of this has been heightened by the circumstances brought about by the current pandemic.

    So if you want to learn more about how to efficiently deal with all those, then tune in!

    E11 – 6 Simple Habits to Boost your Productivity

    E11 – 6 Simple Habits to Boost your Productivity

    Wouldn’t it be wonderful if your work week didn’t feel like you have to scramble to get everything done in time? How wonderful would it be if we had an extra day a week to get everything done? Or even better – wouldn’t it be great to simply get the hang of getting more work done in less time, so that you could use the time you ultimately save on more value-creating tasks?

    What if I told you that increasing your daily productivity is actually not that difficult? It takes just a couple of habits that you need to build in order to get the right workflow going! I’d like to let you in on a couple of habits I have built over the course of the last years. Those have helped me tremendously when it came to keeping up with a pretty heavy workload in high-pressure environments. And contrary to what you might think, multitasking and relentlessly ploughing through work aren’t on the list, because it’s all about working smarter – not harder!

    E10 – Everything you need to know about Equity Compensation (Stock Options, RSUs, etc.)

    E10 – Everything you need to know about Equity Compensation (Stock Options, RSUs, etc.)

    In the last two episodes, I told you everything you needed to know about Job Offers and Salary Negotiation. Those episodes actually prompted quite a number of questions around stock-based compensation, a.k.a. Equity.

    So in this episode, in order for you to feel more confident with this topic, I’ll try to cover everything you need to know about Equity Compensation, including the wonderful world of Stock Options, RSUs, ESPPs and SARs – and which fine print is associated with each of those stock types. We’ll also cover why more and more companies are shifting to stock-based compensation, and explore the philosophy behind this idea. Last but not least, I want to make a point around the difference between stock issued by private companies (non-listed or pre-IPO companies), and public companies.

    E09 – The 8 Worst CV Mistakes That Could Cost You a Job

    E09 – The 8 Worst CV Mistakes That Could Cost You a Job

    It takes recruiters less than 7 seconds to decide whether your CV will be moved on to the next stage of the recruiting process, or whether it will be thrown to the proverbial bin. Needless to say, a well-formatted and well-articulated resume is a real must in order to secure the job you want! But many candidates still underestimate the weight of the CV in the recruiting process, and they often have to learn that the hard way!

    That’s why I’d like to dive a little deeper into the 8 worst CV mistakes you could possibly make in the format and in the content of your CV. And of course: I’ll talk you through how you can successfully avoid them. As a little extra, I’d also like to provide you with 4 “bonus” mistakes! Those errors aren’t talked about as often, but they can negatively impact your credibility just the same!
