IT Career EnergizerTo energize your career in IT you must do two things. First, those skills we used to call soft skills are actually essential skills. You must work to master them! Second, marry your career with your passion! Work for a company, work in an industry, that fuels your passion!

On the podcast, IT Career Energizer, host Phil Burgess and I dig into those two truths and much more. We discuss my worst career moment and my best, the best and worst advice I’ve ever received, and what gets me excited about today’s tech landscape.

Best Pandemic Ever - Virtual InsightsHosts Jared Nichols and Paul Toolan have created an irreverent, hysterically funny, and very insightful podcast about life in 2020, life in dealing with the pandemic. The Best Pandemic Ever looks at life beyond what you may be seeing in the media. They talk to real people about their real experiences, away from the lights and the cameras.

In this episode, our focus is supposed to be on technology. But, as you will hear, we cover non-technology topics like being a grandparent, the return of wildlife, and Sasquatch. Tired of being tied to Zoom calls all day? Take a break and give this a listen!

Ton - Your Working LifeYour Working Life, the podcast of the author and speaker Caroline Dowd-Higgins draws listeners from around the world.  Caroline’s own story of her career transformation led her to dedicate her career to helping other women transform their careers. I had the honor of being introduced to Caroline recently. In this episode of her podcast, we sit down to discuss my book Amplify Your Job Search.  Together, we dive into strategies that can guide professionals in their search.

Status Go - Exploring UncertaintyStatus Go – Episode 94

Business is filled with peaks and valleys. For many of us, the year 2020 has been a deep, deep valley. The year has been filled with challenges, the year has been filled with uncertainty. The future is uncertain, but it feels like the future ahead of us is more uncertain than ever. In this episode, we are going to explore that uncertainty. Who better to help guide us than someone who takes leaders into the face of that uncertainty intentionally. Matt Walker is a professional mountain climber who has scaled the largest peaks on earth and now uses that experience to help leaders overcome challenges in their professional and personal lives by adventuring in the world’s most difficult environments.

Matt leads us through an adventure of mountain tops, the secrets of self-care, and how to lead when faced with uncertainty. This is an episode you will not want to miss!

Status Go "What's Next? | Leadership & Career CoachingStatus Go – Episode 93

One of the most valuable things I did in my career was to hire an executive coach. Careers are complicated. Many times we are caught up in the currents and could use some guidance for finding the way forward. If you have read my book Amplify Your Job Search, you know I recommend hiring a coach multiple times. It is a career amplifier (see how I did that?)! 

Enter Brad Finkeldei, president of Career Confidence. Brad is a recovering IT professional turned career coach. Not surprising, his focus is on the IT pro. In our conversation, we discuss the importance of clarity, something important to any professional regardless of their industry. As we dig deeper, he talks about the most common roadblocks to career success: fear and false narratives. If you are stagnated in your career, you will want to listen to this episode!

Status Go "What's Next? ! Reimagining Work" Now what? What’s next? Where do we go from here? If you have not asked those questions yourself this year, you’ve been asked those questions…dozens of times. As a technology leader, do you have answers? Have you taken the time to reimagine your world of work? Work was changing long before the events of this year, they merely accelerated. Today’s guest has been reimagining work for over ten years as the CEO of Formstack. Chris Byers and Formstack have changed the way work gets done.

Chris and I tackle some of the tough questions imposed upon leaders by the shelter-in-place, remote work necessities brought about by the COVID pandemic. Through the Formstack story, Chris talks about the challenges, lessons learned, and solutions they worked through over the last eight years. We discuss the differences between in-office collaboration and virtual collaboration, communication issues, and launching new initiatives. 

If you are in the process of reimagining work in our new reality you won’t want to miss this episode.
