Mating and the Job Search

By Dolah Saleh | 20 November 2018 | Comments Off on Mating and the Job Search

Whenever I meet someone who needs to begin a job search, the easiest way to explain the process is to compare it to finding a suitable mate. The challenge is that most of us fail to engage in any formalized process to accomplish either. And therein lies what could be a problem. Most of us…

The North Sea, Belgium In my work as a consultant,¬†I see people in various stages of self-defined¬†happiness and success.¬†¬†And because of an assessment tool that I use to determine what an individual needs¬†and how they might best satisfy those needs,¬†I get to have interesting philosophical discussions.¬† I get to realize time and again how so…

By Dolah Saleh | 29 October 2018 |

When you are looking for a job you have a few places to access. One is the internet and these days it turns out that’s quite a good resource. We have social media, where we can upload our resume and have prospective employers take a look at our background and skill level. We can go…

Sensitivity, Sensibility and Respect

By Dolah Saleh | 27 October 2018 | Comments Off on Sensitivity, Sensibility and Respect

I can always get to the point in any given interaction, personal or in observing others, when three words strike me-sensitivity, sensibility and respect.  The quality of the first is in thinking before we speak.  It is being aware and responsive to another person’s point of view.  The second, similar but adding more discernment to…

Why We Don’t Listen To Ourselves

By Dolah Saleh | 30 September 2018 | Comments Off on Why We Don’t Listen To Ourselves

I am painfully aware of how often I hear “I knew” this or that, “I distinctly felt” a particular way about something ….but I chose to not heed that warning or intuition and (therefore) lived to regret it.  I myself have had this experience too many times.  And no matter how often it occurs, followed by…

What About Common Sense?

By Dolah Saleh | 15 September 2018 | Comments Off on What About Common Sense?

From where I sit, particularly from a spiritual point of view, separation of any kind is an illlusion. It is a thought of the ego, intended to cause dissonance.

Love is such a beautiful aspect of our human experience, why is it that so often we are too quick to push it into the background, giving “preference” to thoughts and behavior that have little to do with this awesome birthright-to remain and express from that space. So often we are judging and criticizing and…

The Cover Letter

By Dolah Saleh | 10 July 2018 | Comments Off on The Cover Letter

The Cover Letter It is evidently a common thought amongst job seekers to consider having multiple resumes, each appealing to a separate prospect, a unique job. My initial reaction to these folks is -why would you want to go to all that trouble? Would it not be a whole lot easier to first clearly identify…

We Spiritual Beings

By Dolah Saleh | 02 July 2018 | Comments Off on We Spiritual Beings

I just can’t help commenting on what is happening in our national discourse. The vitriol and lack of civility that we are showcasing to our own people and the world at large is at least unfortunate and at most shameful. In our humanness, I understand our fallibility, but mostly I hold out hope that some…
