What High Performers Do When Things Get Tough

What High Performers Do When Things Get Tough | Avoid Abatement | Scoop.it

The last decade of entrepreneurship has taken place within a rapidly changing environment of growth, struggle, triumph and confusion. The cornerstones relied upon in the past for small business stability and growth have crumbled, leaving an expensive hodgepodge of misguided efforts and bipolar business strategies. 

 

Fundamentally, sales and marketing behaviors are no longer the same. Technology changes have made accurate access to complex business answers easier than ever. Data systems are faster and more people have smarter phones with faster access to the internet. Things we used to wonder about are now quickly answered by an audio search on Google. Business is no longer about having inside access to sales information.

Business is now about having rich conversations with global audiences. Here are four winning attitudes for success at a time of great change.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 15, 2014 9:15 PM

Creativity is a chaotic place to be and for managers this is not where they want to be. They want certainty, but the real certainty is in uncertainty. This requires conversations and embracing the uncertainty along the way. Consider the way we hold curriculum as a plan that leads to learning. When learning does happen, it is because the classroom is a chaotic places where great conversations happen and bring meaning and life to inert outcomes.

John Michel's curator insight, April 16, 2014 7:56 AM

Social changes make it easier than ever to build and maintain relationships that matter. External boundaries such as time zones, location and means of communication have rapidly evolved. People can now share pictures, video, quick thoughts or even their current location with thousands of individuals with just a few clicks of a button. Business is now about rich conversations with an audience all over the world

7 Habits of Highly Emotionally Intelligent People | Avoid Abatement | Scoop.it

It has increasingly become accepted that emotional intelligence is an important factor in our success and happiness, not only at work, but in our relationships and all areas of our lives.


So what sets emotionally intelligent people apart? Here are seven habits that people with high EI have:


1. They Focus on the Positive


While not ignoring the bad news, emotionally intelligent people have made a conscious decision to not spend a lot of time and energy focusing on problems. Rather, they look at what is positive in a situation and look for solutions to a problem. These people focus on what they are able to do and that which is within their control.

What The Happiest People Know About Work

What The Happiest People Know About Work | Avoid Abatement | Scoop.it

Study, work hard, and you will be successful.

 

This was the mantra repeated by educators throughout my youth. None of them added "be happy" to the success equation.

 

But a growing body of research in positive psychology and neuroscience is demonstrating that happiness is the secret ingredient to success. It turns out, our brains are more engaged, creative, productive, and resilient when in a positive state.

 

All this unhappiness comes with a high price tag to businesses, costing more than $550 billion a year in lost productivity. In his book, Donovan identifies 60 simple steps individuals can take to improve their happiness and get back on the path to success. Here are six of the top things happy workers do:

Doing what you love can make you happy-- finding a way to make money while doing what you love is even better! 

Graeme Reid's curator insight, April 10, 2014 7:55 PM

If you don't enjoy what you do it is very difficult to be successful.  There are ways to re-frame the way that you look at things to help you focus on what is important to you.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 22, 2014 11:01 PM

Avoiding energy sappers is what led me to retire from teaching. It was not the students and parents. It was the bureaucratic and technocratic nonsense that went on in school which passes itself off as education.

Forget Work-Life Balance, This Is More Effective and Doable

Forget Work-Life Balance, This Is More Effective and Doable | Avoid Abatement | Scoop.it

If you haven't eaten dinner with your family in the past week, haven't taken a day off in over a year, and feel like you still don't have enough time to finish your work, you're doing something wrong.


Ivan Misner, founder and chairman of global networking organization BNI, knows how unbalanced life is while running your own business.


Misner has written 20 books, runs BNI offices across the world from North America to Asia, and has a wife and kids. If you ask him, he'll tell you he doesn't live a balanced life. He'll also tell you that you'll never achieve balance either. But, that doesn't mean you can't lead a healthy life.


"Do you want to know the secret to balance? Forget about balance, you'll never have it," Misner told me recently. "You cannot have balance as an entrepreneur, but you can create harmony."

Are Women Better Social Media Marketers? Answer: Yes

Are Women Better Social Media Marketers? Answer: Yes | Avoid Abatement | Scoop.it

I love this debate and come down firmly on the side of women (lol). Women are more socially gifted in general. Yes I know that is stereotypical thinking, but I keep finding DATA to support the idea. At one point I wanted to write a book.

The Feminine Future was going to gather data to prove that women are more gifted and social media and social media is the future of marketing so women = the future of marketing. I haven't been able to write that book, but the truth of it feels even more true now.

What do you think? Are men or women better social media marketers?

Social Media Marketing's Party Has Started!

Social Media Marketing's Party Has Started! | Avoid Abatement | Scoop.it

Tackling a social media marketing plan is a bit like eating an elephant - you gotta do it just one bite at a time. 

Marty Note
Great starter advice here such as:

Steer clear of divisive topics. Sharing strong opinions on sensitive topics – from politics to parenting – can alienate potential customers. Especially if they have nothing to do with your business, keep opinions away from your social media.

Share and share alike. If you want to grow your network, take the time to provide feedback to people you network with. Share comments on posts in Google+ circles, “like” things on Facebook, take the time to retweet. Oftentimes people in your community will respond in kind.

Add insight. Providing tips or insight to your network gives your business credibility. Take the time to share information that your customers may value.

Master the #hashtag. 

If you haven't come to the realization social media IS your business never too late to get with the program. Get started with social media.
