The Fish Firm's curator insight, September 14, 2013 12:12 PM

The internet has radically changed the relationship between customers and businesses. This has forced especially small businesses into a new space where ‘business as usual’ must be done differently in order to get discovered, connect with customers and run effective promotions.

As we’ve been visiting with small businesses, we’ve found that most are using social media to connect with customers. But at the same time, most are unaware of the power online communities, that include a combination of Social, Local and Mobile media, can play in today's consumer’s purchase decisions.

This stat proves this to be true: "Peer recommendations drive sales. 70% of consumer said they were influenced by a friend or family member’s online recommendation, beating out in-person recommendation (61%), online articles (59%), ads (49%), or someone they follow online but don’t know (32%)"

It's got to be about Why, not How: How Great Leaders Inspire Action, Simon Sinek

"Why FIRST:  Communication and the Golden Circle:  Why, How, What?  Inspire where others do not.  Profit is JUST a result NOT a reason for existing."

 

Simon's examples include Apple (why so innovative?), Martin Luther King (lead major change, Civil Rights movement), and the Wright brothers (controlled powered manned flight that others did not achieve, tho' were working on.)

"The goal is to do business with people who believe what YOU believe." ~ Simon Sinek

_________________________

   

 

Apple:  NOT, What we do, great computers.  Want to buy one?

RATHER:  Everything we do, we believe in challenging the status quo, we believe thinking differently. The way we challenge the status quo is making products that are beautifully designed, simple to use & user friendly.  We happen to make computers.  Want to buy one?

 

Counterpoint Tivo, which (until a recent court victory that tripled its stock price) appeared to be struggling.

Will Your Leadership Improvements Stick? | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

This article points out that leadership is fundamentally about making changes, improvements or innovations and suggests that the best way for leaders to be effective is the use of a disciplined and focused approach to the changes they are making.

In working on leadership issues, I have essentially come to the same conclusion as the authors.  The approach I have developed provides a powerful and practical framework for leadership that simplifies the task of identifying the competencies needed to make and sustain the changes that leaders make. It focuses on a "purposeful" approach to leading. ( For an overview of the approach go to: http://www.slideshare.net/FJPapotto/purposeful-leadership

Each of these stages describes a valid response to change, but the model does assume a fixed sequence and that everyone starts at the same place. These assumptions are questionable.  My experience indicates that people and organizations vary in their initial readiness for and responses to large scale change. In fact, greater readiness to embrace change and more positive reactions to change most often characterize highly effective organizations.

Four basic conditions for large transformation to take place in an organization:A compelling story,Role modeling,Reinforcing mechanisms, andCapability building. In the seven stage developmental framework for leaders.. Torbert and his associates asserted that only in the last three of the seven stages of leadership development do individuals have enough reflective meaning-making to successfully drive transformational change.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, August 14, 2013 3:21 PM

This is a fantastic resource.

 

From the article:

 

Burns, the Grand Father of transformation leadership, defines it as a “Process of engaging with others in such a way as to raise leader and follower to higher levels of motivation and morality.” He contrasts this to,

“A false conception of leadership as mere command and control.

 

As leadership comes properly to be seen as a process of leaders engaging and mobilizing human needs and aspirations of followers, women will be more readily recognized as leaders and men will change their own leadership styles.”

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s curator insight, August 14, 2013 9:15 PM

Any leadership style has situational problems that have to be balance or more fluid with application and implementation.

Words Matter, Context Matters More | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

We have all heard the nursery rhyme “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”  Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it just ain’t so.  Words can hurt, and they can hurt deeply.  Our words can turn an enemy into a friend and a friend into an enemy.  Our words can lift someone up or tear someone down.  In fact, one of the most powerful things we have as a leader is our words.

"Words chanted, spoken and written are powerful incantations. They have the ability to heal as well as inflame, to unite as well as separate, to bring love as well as engender hatred."
- Mark Lamm

David Rathbun goes on to say "As powerful as words are, we must not forget that much of their power comes not from the words themselves but from the context in which the words are spoken. The gestures and tone we use with our words, the time and place we choose to speak our words, the way we put the words together, they all have an impact on how our words are received. So, choose your words with care, and choose the context in which your share them with even more care."

The article is written from a marketing perspective and makes some excellent points about engaging employees. But engagement should be a much broader effort than suggested here. Selecting people who believe in the company's mission, developing employee's capacity to contribute, treating employees fairly, and giving them sufficient autonomy and resources to do their work effectually are other essentials that effective, high performing companies do to support engagement.
