Should You Talk Politics at Work?

As the election approaches, political conversations become more frequent—including in the workplace. How can you keep conversations in the office civil and productive when politics come up? Hyatt-Fennell Executive Search’s own Cheryl Hyatt recently shared her insight on this topic. One piece of advice Hyatt offers is to know when to pivot to a new topic. She writes: “Just as vital as knowing how to engage civilly with a co-worker is knowing when to step away from a topic. There are times when a conversation will not be productive. Don’t be afraid to say something positive but direct, such as ‘I appreciate how passionate you are about this topic, but I try not to discuss politics at work. I d

A Model of Leadership in the New Normal:

Part 2 - Tenth in a Series by Jack Calareso, Hyatt-Fennell Executive Search The first article I wrote regarding leadership in the new normal was submitted for publication on August 13, 2020.  As I prepare to submit this follow-up article, it is now late August.  My introduction in Part 1 summarized the status of Fall semester instruction as of mid-August. Now two weeks later, all of the data collected by Davidson College in their report, “Crisis College Initiative” or “C2i,” required updating.  The major shift is the necessary movement from in-person instruction, fully and hybrid, to totally online instruction. National news has featured accounts of institutions, including the University of

A Model of Leadership in the New Normal: Part 1 - Ninth in a Series by Jack Calareso, Hyatt-Fennell

As I write this article, students are arriving on some campuses and the start of classes is imminent. According to the data collected by Davidson College, “Crisis College Initiative” or “C2i,” the approach to the Fall semester varies widely. While 26% of all colleges and universities (private, public, four-year and two-year) are still deciding, only 2.5% are trying to go fully in person, and only 5% are planning to go fully remote.

Cheryl Hyatt Featured in Business Insider

Preparation is fundamental to an interview. One way to make use of that preparation is through a cheat sheet for your interview. A cheat sheet can list items you want to be sure and include in the discussion. Cheryl Hyatt was recently featured in Business Insider discussing the role that notes can play in a successful interview. Hyatt notes that candidates often answer more successfully if they have notes with them. A cheat sheet is an even more viable option with many interviews taking place through Zoom. Hyatt cautions that your cheat sheet should be used as a tool, not a crutch. You want to be making eye contact with your interviewer—whether that’s mediated through technology or not—not b
