Welcome to TheCAREERMaker.com
Hi, I’m Ed Murphy and I’m the Co-Author of The Effectiveness Guide and the Founder of TheCAREERMaker.com.
In 2014, I created this site to provide you with the best in class knowledge, wisdom, and advice on how to maximize your true career by becoming absolutely essential to any employer, becoming a better Leader and Follower tomorrow than you are today and how to Find and Build the career you were meant to have.
That same year, with the help of my two partners Lee O. Lacy and Jason Bowne, we created The Effective Leader’s Guide, to help employees who are currently in leadership positions to enhance their careers.
In 2016, I finally completed The Effectiveness Guide, with the slightly different focus of helping those young people in today’s job market who have a strong desire to maximize their true career potential and become more effective tomorrow than they are today.
I do this by teaching you how to become absolutely essential and irreplaceable to any employer, consistently produce excellent results, treat others with dignity, respect, and kindness; and to identify, measure, and enhance your value added to your career, company, team, and community.
I believe Coach Paul “Bear” Bryant, Alabama’s legendary Football coach, had it right when he said,
“It’s not the will to win that matters—everyone has that.
It’s the will to prepare to win that matters.”
So, how can you become absolutely essential to any employer? By learning, using ,and teaching the proven Tactics, Techniques and Tools that employer’s expect you to know, but are not taught anywhere. Until now, these skills were only learned through decades of struggle, trial and error, and mistakes. But now there’s a better way.
I’m only able to do this because I was the lucky one. Over the past 5 decades, I’ve been privileged to work with some of America’s most exceptional men and women, who were real game changers, self-starters, and effective Leaders and Followers. I willingly followed, served, and emulated them for all the right reasons. They knew how to treat others with dignity, respect and kindness.
After graduating from West Point, I served 23 years as a US Army Officer, from Viet Nam to Desert Storm, where I learned a great deal about Leadership and Followership. I also learned how effective leaders influenced others by the skillfully use the 10 Core Competencies of Effectiveness, which are
After leaving the military, I was blessed to work as an Executive Coach in Corporate America for the next 21 years, for four of the largest consulting, outplacement and e-cruiting companies in Seattle, San Diego, and Kansas City. It was here that I learned a great deal about Business Management and Operations, Career Development, and Job Searching.
I also learned that to become absolutely essential, you must be perceived as someone who can be counted on to consistently produce excellent results, create the Conditions for Success, while treating everyone with dignity, respect and kindness.
Thanks to my effective Leaders, I’ve collected thousands of Tactics, Techniques, and Tools that constitute the minimum level of fundamental knowledge, skill and ability needed to maximize your career by becoming absolutely essential to any employer, becoming a more effective Leader and Follower tomorrow than you are today, and Finding and Building the career you were meant to have.
