The 9 dumbest ways to measure social media

The 9 dumbest ways to measure social media | Adult Education and Organizational Leadership | Scoop.it

By Kent LEWIS

 

There are a host of issues created by meaningless metrics, which include but are not limited to: wasting time, wasting money, and making bad decisions based on inaccurate, incomplete, or incomprehensible data.

 

More depressing than being easily gamed by humans is the fact that Klout scores have been vulnerable to manipulation by robots and related tools. As such, it's dangerous when companies use it to make decisions, from hiring to assessing the "influence" of fans and rewarding (or ignoring) them accordingly.

Leadership and EQ - RealTime Leadership | Adult Education and Organizational Leadership | Scoop.it

In the past, it might have been true that leaders could succeed simply because they were smart. But that’s no longer all it takes. While technical skills remain important, our emotional intelligence (referred to as EQ or EI) is just as important as our IQ. In fact, research shows that a leader’s emotional intelligence has a direct impact on the success of an organization.

 

Daniel Goleman, a thought-leader on the topic of EI, says this about emotional intelligence:
