Aggressive and Defensive: The Right Way to Drive Your Executive Career

Thursday, 9/28 was my 23rd wedding anniversary, and my hubby and I went out to a local comedy show and dinner to celebrate.

The headliner of the evening was a comic named Joe Conti.

Salt-of-the-earth Jersey guy with the funny but somewhat typical poke-fun-of-Jersey-but-love-Jersey humor.

Joe started to joke about NJ drivers.

He said, “New Jersey drivers are the best in the world. We drive in one of the most compact people per square foot locations. But the main reason why we are such good drivers is we are aggressive and defensive at the same time.”

He went on to describe how we are pissed off when anyone cuts us off and goes slower than we do, but in the same breathe we are yelling at the guy behind us for riding too close to the bumper and being “up my a**”.

Funny… An old comedy line in NJ, but it’s true and it still makes me laugh.

We are aggressive AND defensive.

I think that’s why I have an awesome job search consulting company.

I teach clients to be aggressive (proactively promote yourself) and defensive (always be ready for what the world throws your way).

Sometimes you have to plan and execute to go after a promotion.

Sometimes you have to react to getting an unexpected layoff – to land what you equally had (or better) in a short period of time.

Aggressive and defensive.

Manage your executive career like the best drivers in the world… According to Joe.
