When I abutting LinkedIn, I did so because I capital to arrangement with added professionals and added my career. But instead, LinkedIn has become a go-to abode for guys to bawl at me about my looks rather than my portfolio.

I’ll elaborate.

Here’s a LinkedIn bulletin a acquaintance of abundance accustomed endure week. My acquaintance is an adorable blonde, UCSB graduate, and tech recruiter in San Francisco. She had never met or heard of this guy afore – this bulletin was absolutely out of the blue.

Subject: Beautiful Smiles

What a beautiful smile you accept on actuality (on a nice profile) you attending beaming in such a way that intrigues anybody that angle your profile. I was in fact browsing through the account of my access if I came above yours, pulsed and couldn’t abide to say hi accepting apparent such different beauty.

I aboveboard apologize for autograph such claimed bulletin to you as I accept that this Able Networking website prohibits it, but just like I said, I couldn’t abide to say hi.

If this had been said in the workplace, it would be classified as animal harassment.

While abounding of us will apparently just beam it off, why amusement a able networking website any beneath able than the workplace?

Females accept formed harder and appear so far to be advised appropriately at work.

Now, this isn’t to say women aren’t hitting on guys on LinkedIn, too. And not all men are awful LinkedIn nerds. This is just my claimed experience. However, afterwards speaking with a few accompany of mine, I KNOW this happens consistently with a lot of women.

Guys (and girls), if you acquisition yourself absent to hit on someone, that’s a-okay. We all charge love.

Troll as abundant as your affection can handle

See how abounding alternatives there are? They are sites in fact advised for dating. Unlike LinkedIn. Hell, OKCupid even has a clarify so you can acquisition anyone aural a specific assets bracket. See, it’s a lot easier to accumulate the online dating letters aural an online dating site.

Unless, of course, LinkedIn has a “hot woman” and “at atomic an 8 out of 10″ filter. Possibly that’s a Premium feature?

And of course, if you wish an even added dependable section of advice, GET OFF THE COMPUTER! Hit on a babe in person. As continued as it’s affable and funny, we adulation that shit!

One endure little thing

Hence, to prove my point, I did a little agreement of my own.

Simply by announcement one clay account of myself already a day for the accomplished 5 days, I accept accustomed over 1600 new affiliation request. ALL FROM MEN! My contour angle went up from 200 a day to able-bodied over 1,000 a day. And of advance the absolute aweless letters I accept anytime apparent in my lifetime! It is above deplorable. But hey, at atomic all-overs are consistent!

Effective Business Management Unites Education and Training with Corporate Coaching

Business management spends billions of dollars in corporate training and education. According to a report released in early 2006, the U.S. corporate education and training market exceeded $46 billion. Additionally, business management and leadership training captured the largest percentage of program dollars with developing new and existing management along with succession planning. (Source: Bersin & Associates)With training budgets increasing and the additional focus on leadership and management development because people do not leave organizations they leave managers, achieving higher levels of positive return on investment (ROI) makes sense. Research supports that to increase training ROI begins by including coaching as an effective tactic.In a 2001 study completed by Dr. Merrill Anderson, of MetrixGlobal, for a Fortune 500 company coaching can produce a 529 per cent ROI. Additional studies since that time confirm the positive affect of coaching. Business management executives are now employing a new learning strategy that combines education and training with coaching. This is initiative is corporate coaching. So what is corporate coaching?

Simply speaking, corporate coaching extends existing learning or what some call training by infusing one on one executive coaching within the education, training and development sessions to achieve performance improvement that generates a positive ROI. Corporate coaching is always aligned with the strategic plan and the organization’s current goals and provides a vehicle to reinforce current learning as well as a way to make necessary course corrections through both individual and team perspectives. Corporate objectives are achieved much quicker allowing for a better competitive advantage.NOTE:What corporate coaching is not – any program that cannot be aligned to the strategic plan and lacks a structured process that does not focus on pre-determined measurable results.How does corporate coaching work? The answer to that question is “that depends.” Corporate coaching is flexible and may be included within the training schedules or upon completion of the training. The real issue is to find a corporate coaching process that is results focused and uses proven tools that build the What’s in it for me (WIIFM) leading to the What’s in it for us (WIIFU). Effective corporate coaching works to further internalize the identified learning objectives and quantifies those efforts on a regular basis through consistent goal achievement.

How do I find a corporate coach? That is a very good question since many coaches whether a certified coach or not are now offering corporate coaching services. Possibly, the best way is to find a coach who:
Is results focused
Has a demonstrated record of success that is quantifiably measurable
Has both proven developmental processes and tools that work with the strengths of your organization.
Remember, companies win because of their strengths not their weaknesses. Corporate coaching allows you to further capitalize on those very strengths that made your company what it is.

Flavor Pairings: Why Grow Herbs For Cooking, Cocktails, And Culinary Crafts

I remember my first herb class on growing herbs for culinary and creative crafts. I left that annual herb sale with young fragrant plants, with just enough knowledge to be dangerous wielding a trowel, and a perpetual enthusiasm that all contributed to help me form my first edible garden oasis.After a trip to Home Depot, I was armed with shiny silver tools, bags of potting soil to house my foliage friends, fertilizer to make them grow, and the inner drive to begin digging my way to becoming a green thumb farmer girl!Now, 20 years later, it’s hard to imagine my kitchen without a bunch of basil on the counter, herbs drying on racks, and jars of dried oregano and chocolate mint within easy reach at each meal. From summer’s juicy ripe berries, peaches, and tomatoes to fall’s vibrant harvest of squash, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes, onto holiday turkey and ham feasts, and into hearty winter stews and casseroles, herbs enhance every season’s fare!

I’m still thrilled to witness the miracle of propagation each time with every plant. I shelter them in stormy weather, talk to them while watering, trim their leaves, and weed their beds. In return, I’m rewarded with savory, spicy, and fruity aromas, a relaxing hobby, a healthy method of adding flavor to food and cocktails that lasts all year long, and great natural photography backgrounds!Do you have herbs and are looking for ideas on how to use them?
