The New Tao of Leadership - John Maeda

The New Tao of Leadership - John Maeda | Actualidad Express | Scoop.it

What's the Significance?

 

For Maeda, learning to be a creative leader has been a process of experimentation within these two roles, leading to a balance that enables him to be tough and also to be nurturing, depending on what the moment and the audience demands.

 

Gust MEES:

 

One needs to find the balance between authority and being too friendly, but every time being adaptable to any situations, a problem solver! This can ONLY be achieved when having the right knowledge, Life-Long-Learning! Knowledge in different Topics, that takes years to acquire, but worth to learn it...

Best 15 Free Video Conferencing Tools 2012

Best 15 Free Video Conferencing Tools 2012 | Actualidad Express | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are looking for a free video conferencing solution, here is my selection of the top 15 (and more) solutions available right now online.

I have personally checked each one of them, and while you may not like each one, they all guarantee the ability to video conference with more than two people (FlashMeeting is the only exception I have included) without you needing to pay anything for it.

 

Some, as good as Vidyo or Zoom.us may provide HD quality video and even full support for mobile platforms. Others, like MeBeam or Sinfor offer bare-bone ad-supported solutions that have zero frills but can do the job if you need an immediate, zero-cost solution.

 

Check it out here: http://pinterest.com/robingood/top-15-free-video-conferencing-tools-2012/

 

P.S.: Feel free to suggest tools you know that should belong in this collection.
