  • With internet-based search tools, expertise is incredibly easy to find. Clarifying your expertise is critical to finding a positive match between your expertise and an organization’s needs. Consider how your expertise is visible to organizations. Language matters – consider the language of those whom you seek to connect and attract.
  • Consultants/high value employees make sense of ambiguity for their clients. They provide bod pathways forward and solutions to mission-critical challenges. How are you a consultant to your current or future employer?Always draw a “hard line” between your efforts and SROI – your efforts and success will ultimately be judged by how they improve SROI. The customer depends on this focus and therefore so too does the institution.
  • Generallyspeaking, for-profit or not-for-profits that are not institutions operate in a world of “fee for service”. That is, organizational sustainability and growth is highly dependent on the activities of these organizations’ employees. Therefore, these organizations have some differences that are worthy of consideration.
  • While organizational mission is often seen as far removed from day to day activities, it is worthy of consideration prior to committing one’s effort and career. If mission is important to you, as it likely should be, then alignment of one’s own mission and the institution is important for long term value – both for you and your employer.
  • “Data-driven decision making, big data, evidence-based management”, etc. is beyond trite and buzzy. While using data to inform management and leadership is certainly a required practice, balance data with experience and skepticism. One data set can “tell” us much, but to not question data is to potentially ignore nuance, context, and limitations.
