Wendy Flanagan's curator insight, July 2, 2013 11:55 AM

The power of social is to engage the entire organization with the reach of its individuals. But how to control and direct the messaging is a marketer's nightmare!

Scott Span, MSOD's comment, July 8, 2013 11:54 AM
@Wendy - That is most definitely part of the challenge, not just for marketers, but also for those of us who are working to increase organizational communication and performance.
Wendy Flanagan's comment, July 8, 2013 5:05 PM
Employees as brand champions from each division based on their understanding of Vision, Mission, Values and ability to articulate such via imagery and written word. Those who don't meet the same criteria in their private social media activities should not engage on behalf of the company. The current state of Social, barring Vine and YouTube, is primarily focused on writing skills and thus can be reviewed and documented against brand standards. Training has to become part of the job for those in public-facing roles - training about corporate position, corporate secrets, online etiquette, the state of SEO, crisis procedures and time management.

10 Core Competencies of Servant Leadership

Servant-Leaders strive to become the best leaders possible each and every day. To do so means that they follow and are empowered by key characteristics that build a service-oriented consciousness (mind-set). Much of the research on servant leadership discuss the characteristics of a servant leader. Some researchers say servant leadership is seen as vision, influence, credibility, and trust. Others include emotional healing, creating value for the community, conceptual skills, empowering, helping subordinates grow and succeed, putting subordinates first, behaving ethically, relationships, and servant hood as key characteristics. One of my favorite researchers, K. Patterson, added another characteristic; Agapao love. She defined it as to do goodwill for another.

(From the article): LOOK FOR THINGS YOU HAVE IN COMMON

Regardless of our differences, if we look long enough, we will find something that we share with virtually everyone. If we find out what that is, we can develop stronger connections with the people that we wish to have a greater influence with. In preparation for meeting with someone, we can learn the latest in the area of common interest so that we both have something to get the conversation off to a positive start and flowing in the right direction.

donhornsby's curator insight, May 26, 11:08 AM

(From the article): Research shows that there’s a clear link between transparency and employee happiness. When you regularly ask your employees what’s on their minds and start measuring your culture, you’ll improve your culture, build mutually trusting relationships, and gain a competitive advantage. Most people want to make a valuable contribution, and feel great when they make progress toward doing so. So if management wants to attract, engage, and retain its top talent, you’ll invest in understanding what makes them tick. While you might not want to give up your salary or redistribute all your profits, you may want to get honest feedback for what makes employees happy and what areas you need to improve to inspire them to feel like owners.
