    Encore: Finding Out of Office Inspiration

    Encore: Finding Out of Office Inspiration

    A few weeks back on the show, we were talking with our own Coach Larry about what to do if you base your entire identity on your job. Which unsurprisingly, is NOT the healthiest way to live.

    One piece of Larry’s advice was to make sure there’s “something else” in your life other than work, including creative pursuits. But how do you work an extra passion project into your busy schedule? And what if you don’t even think of yourself as especially creative?

    Today’s guest Laura M. Holson has some ideas. She’s a longtime writer for The New York Times and authored the article, “Forget a Fast Car, Creativity Is The New Midlife Crisis Cure.” Holson also started “The BOX Sessions,” a “creative gathering” that will happen in February 2020. Holson shares her personal story of finding creativity (and a knack for doing voice-overs), as well as some tips for starting a creative journey when you’re strapped for time.

    Then we’ll hear from listener Steven, who spends Monday through Friday as a steelworker and moonlights as a DJ. He needs some advice on how to leave his day job for a career he’s really passionate about.

    Liz and Rico will also chat with listener Carly who wants to know the best way to create “psychological safety” at work -- A.K.A. an environment where people aren’t afraid to speak up. 

    And later, listener Karen was put in a tough situation at work when a whistleblower showed her some damning work emails, all written by management. Our favorite lawyer Laura Lawless writes in with some advice on the legal implications of those messages, and what Karen can do with them.

    Encore: How to Work Smarter Without Working Harder

    Encore: How to Work Smarter Without Working Harder

    We get a lot of questions from folks about how to quit a difficult or stressful job. But perhaps our favorite task here is to help you become better and more efficient at your current gig--so maybe you won’t have to quit, or resort to anxiety meds.

    And to that end, Liz and Rico are talking to one of their favorite guests: Morten T. Hansen. Hansen is a management professor at the University of California, Berkeley, and author of the book, “Great at Work.” He’s here to explain a research-based list of “work smarter practices,” including shaking things up at meetings.

    Then, in this week’s Bad Advice segment, Liz and Rico parse whether a knock ‘em dead interview performance really matters.

    And later, listener Michelle gets some solace from Liz and Rico, and some strategies on how to deal with a nightmare of a supervisor in her Ph.D. program.

    Finally, we’ll hear from listener Kate who’s thanking us for getting her more money at work! And with her permission, here’s the letter that got her that salary bump (all names have been removed to protect the innocent ;) !

    Hi, XX. To follow up with our conversation this morning about my contract, I wanted to lay out what I’m thinking for you since I know you’ll have to take my request up the chain to get an answer.

    I am asking if there is any flexibility regarding the salary amount that was offered. I’m assuming that $XX is the standard salary that is offered to recent college graduates at XX, but I feel that my skills, work experience, and accomplishments are worth more than a typical college graduate just entering the workforce.

    My prior work experience with helping to make decisions at XX and my experience there and at XX is particularly helpful in this position since I’m already familiar with the flow of business operations and common applications many of our clients use, and I understand where they’re coming from when they approach us with questions or needing assistance. I’ve also demonstrated strong leadership skills both in my personal and professional life, but also recently with the different things I’ve been involved with at XX. I served as Vice President of the XX there, and will be President of the XX chapter this fall... As you know, I ran that XX program there this past season, and it was a great success – we won the XX award, I think for the very first time. In December I’ll be graduating at the very top of my class with honors.

    We’re putting this contract in place pretty early. In seven months when this contract goes into effect I will have worked here for a full year, and will be even more valuable to the firm than I am now. I’ll be very familiar with the flow of information and will have completed all of the trainings available. I think that puts me in a different category than most new hires. Everyone I’ve spoken with for career advice in school tells me that the starting salary for XX students after graduation is in the $XX range. I imagine that is more typical for the larger [companies] so I’m not surprised that XX’s normal starting salary is lower than that, but I was hoping for an offer that was in the higher range because of my experience, skills, and accomplishments.

    I love everything about working at XX. I can tell that it’s a [company] that truly cares about both its clients and employees. I’ve been impressed with all of the departments I’ve worked with from HR to training, to my manager/partner and coworkers. I’ve done well here so far, and I expect to perform even better once my attention is no longer split between working here and managing a full load of classes & school responsibilities. I’m ambitious and I do good work, so I expect to hit the ground running in January. I want to make sure my salary reflects that, so I hope the firm will consider starting me at a higher salary.

    Encore: Staying Connected to Your Team Outside of the Office

    Encore: Staying Connected to Your Team Outside of the Office

    We’ve talked a lot on the show about ways to stay sane as a remote worker, but managing a remote team is a whole different animal. So we’ve called on David Deacon, author of “The Self Determined Manager: A Manifesto for Exceptional People Managers,” to shed light on how bosses can help their employees feel like part of the team, even from halfway around the world. 

    Then, Liz and Rico will chat with listener Jenn, who just stepped into a new role at her company, but can’t escape her terrible boss. And we hear from listener Stephanie, who’s been building up her side hustle and wants some advice on how to inject that gig into her resume. 

    Finally, Liz and Rico talk to listener Sarah, who wants to know how to get job security at a cannabis startup where she’s been dubbed “Wonder Woman” for her impressive job skills.

    Encore: Keeping Sane in Your Home Office

    Encore: Keeping Sane in Your Home Office

    Kat Boogaard, staff writer at The Muse, joins us to talk about the surprisingly challenging aspects of working from home, plus she gives us her tips on how to tell if you’re the kind of person who could responsibly handle working remotely (if you have a predilection for watching Vine compilations on Youtube, working in an office might be better for you). Then, Liz and Rico help listeners Samantha, whose new job is being ruined by major changes at her company, and Amanda, who’s struggling to connect with her coworkers at her office in China. And we debate company cards, staying late, and calling your boss on vacation in today’s Mind the Gap.

    You can read more of Kat’s writing on freelancing, working remote, and all sorts of topics at her website: https://katboogaard.com/
