How Can I Help You?

What I Believe

I believe work can be fulfilling. I believe you can thrive in your career. I believe now is the perfect time to start your own business. I believe that risk of authenticity is worth it. I believe that leaders who replicate their own dysfunctional family dynamic are the biggest threat to a workplace.

I believe in speaking up.

I believe that change is a constant. I believe that fear is crippling. I believe that there’s no such thing as “perfect”. I believe that someone right out of jail without a high school diploma can be a great employee. I believe that someone with an MBA can be a great employee. I believe that all great employees need a mentor.

I believe that the simplest solution is the best solution.

I believe that people are generally good, and want to help others. I believe you never really lose when you make a mistake – you get to learn. I believe most companies don’t really know how to compensate or incentivize their employees. I believe some great leaders are born, and some great leaders learn. I believe that workplaces can become better places.

And that’s why I do what I do.

Beth Braverman at The Fiscal Times interviewed Michele about How to Land the Job You Really Want—Now.

Forget about “grabbing coffee.” One-on-one meetings have become rare. “With the pace of work today, a lot of people can’t spare the time to leave the office and meet you for coffee,” says Michele Woodward, a career strategist in the Washington, D.C. area. Instead, ask for a 20-minute phone conversation.

Dads Are The Sexiest Men On Earth

Silhouette Of Father Lovingly Kissing Child On Forehead At SunseKnow what makes a sexy man?

It’s not the size of his bank account or the length of his job title.

It’s not that he’s a road warrior with a fat frequent flyer balance.

It’s not his dark wavy hair, his fast, sleek car or the washboard appearance of his abs.

It’s none of that.

A man is so sexy when…he’s teaching his daughter how to light the perfect fire on an autumn night.

When he shows his son how to not only grow tomatoes and basil but then how to make them into a Caprese salad.

When he listens to his teenager’s worries.

When he accompanies his adult daughter to chemo.

When he drives the carpool, when he brings the snacks, when he springs for pizza, when he discusses the Peloponnesian War, when he cries at his child’s wedding, when he is fully and completely committed to his family.

That is pretty sexy.

And all men – those uncles, and brothers, and cousins, and granddads, and neighbors, and clergy, and coaches, and teachers, and mentors – all of them who take time to give of themselves to young people who need a father figure…well, they’re damn sexy, too.

Happy Father’s Day, you sexy devils.
