Dear Parents...

(04/20/2017) Help your Graduate Avoid this Top Interviewing MistakeThere’s this weird sisterhood that takes place between two complete strangers in the women’s dressing room. Similar to the dressing room scene in the movie, Keeping Up with the Joneses starring Isla Fisher and Gal Gadot, I found myself standing in my underwear before three complete strangers giving advice on how to dress for an interview.I was trying on some new dresses at my favorite clothing boutique when I overheard a woman say, “My daughter is graduating from college and she has her first job interview on Monday.” The sales associate assured her that her daughter looked beautiful in the very pricy outfit and went on to say the outfit was perfect for an interview. I thought, no wonder 75% of hiring managers believe the top interviewing mistake millennials make is wearing inappropriate attire (according to a study done by recruiting firm, Adecco.)Although I was trying to mind my own business, I couldn’t help but wonder what type of job and what kind of company would find a black and white striped mini skirt with a matching cropped bomber jacket to be appropriate attire for a job interview. Is she a model, I wondered? Or perhaps a singer or going into some other type of creative field? My curiosity got the best of me so I asked, “What type of job is she interviewing for? “Engineering,” the mother replied.Where I didn’t want to contradict the sales associate or block her sales commission, I could not keep silent and let this well-meaning mother lead her daughter down the wrong path. So, I spoke up and shared with her what I teach my career coaching clients.What I know for sure is that how you dress for an interview matters. It matters because our physical appearance is a form of non-verbal communication. It is the visual impression that accompany your ability to speak the right words with the right emotion while being intellectually convincing. To communicate well on a job interview, the candidate must bring all four—intellect, emotional intelligence, non-verbal, and verbal communication—of these factors together. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “What you are speaks so loudly that I can’t hear what you say.” When job candidates bring more than a college degree to the interview they are more likely to succeed.If you’re a parent wanting to help your graduate prepare for the interview, check out this video on professional dressing.I'm here for you,Yvette------------------------------------Yvette Gavin has coached individuals into higher paying jobs, more rewarding careers, and personal spiritual growth.

The John Maxwell TEAM

(04/05/2017) Six years ago I called the John Maxwell Company and asked for 10 minutes of John’s time. Where that may sound bold and courageous, I didn’t feel bold at all. I felt totally out of my element and the fear of rejection was huge. I made the call in spite of the negative thoughts and feelings that were trapped inside of me. I was finally at the place where my dreams had become bigger and stronger than my fears. I was no longer willing to allow the comfort of a six-figure income to limit my potential of achieving a more mission-driven life. This photo of John and I was taken last month at the International Maxwell Live Event in Orlando, FL. It is much more than a photo with the world’s leading leadership expert; it is the physical manifestation of a dream realized.Transitioning from a corporate IT leader role to a Leadership and Personal Growth Coach, Trainer, and Speaker didn’t happen because I wished for it. It happened because I became intentional about living my dreams. James Allen, author of As a Man Thinketh. said “People are anxious to improve their circumstances but are unwilling to improve themselves; they therefore remain bound.” I took this one quote to heart and began to focus on my own personal growth. Today I’m continuously growing and one of my greatest forms of joy come from knowing that I am helping others to grow and achieve their dreams.In 2014 my client Barbara (not her real name) came to me for career coaching because she was frustrated with being undervalued at her current company. She was crystal clear about what she didn’t want but as clear as mud about what she did want. I started her with a vision exercise and within three months she landed a fulfilling position with a fortune 500 company that more than doubled her previous income! She went from $70,000.00 to earning over $170,000.00 within three months of working with me.  Barbara and I continued to meet after she landed the position and worked on positioning her for future growth. It’s almost 3-years now and she’s still passionate about her work.In my next blog post, I'll share more about how I've helped others grow personally, professionally, and spiritually. Also, I'll provide more tips on how you can achieve your personal and professional dreams. In the meantime, checkout my website for free materials like the vision plan template I am using with my current clients.  I'm here for you,

17 Ways to Balance and Recharge Your Life

(03/01/2017)   Your family and career are important parts of your life. If anyone believes that, I certainly do, and the reality is that most of us spend more time at work than we do at home with our families. Yes, your job and your family are, and should be, an important component of your life. But wait. There’s more. There’s you. I work long hours and when I’m in the office, I’m on. I am also a wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and a friend. Nevertheless, I’m quite clear on the fact that I also have to take care of myself. I have to practice the kinds of healthy self-care habits that help me find peace and reinvigorate me so I can be my best self for my family, for my employees, for my clients, and for me. There are times I get out of balance, but I have specific strategies to rebalance myself.Here are a few restorative practices that can help you manage the stress of a demanding career and family life: Read a BookMeditationPrayerDeep breathing exercisesLong soaks in the bathJournalingGratitude journalingRegular exerciseHealthy food choicesVacation timeSufficient sleepVisualization exercisesGardeningArts or craftsUpbeat or uplifting musicTime spent in naturePlay or recreation of any kind Anything that takes your mind off work or personal issues, especially done with a meditative state of mind, is wonderful for reducing stress and allowing you to rebalance. As I write this, adult coloring books are all the rage, and the publishers’ marketing angle is that coloring is a great way to relax. Some people bake or clean when they need to unwind. Others watch comedies and laugh away the stress.Figure out what you can do that will leave you feeling renewed and make it a regular practice. Recognize that when you feel so overwhelmed you think there’s no way you can find five minutes for any of your relaxation techniques, that’s the time you most need them.Do you know of some other great ways to balance and recharge? Please share it in the comment section and I’ll add it to our list. Yvette Gavin has coached individuals into higher paying jobs, more rewarding careers, and personal spiritual growth.
