Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's curator insight, October 3, 2013 8:15 PM

As the convergence of digital technologies drives unprecedented levels of change in global marketplaces, it is very much a reality that a company must, as Bill Gates put it, “innovate or die!” In the race for relevance to future customers, the greater a company’s innovation capacity, the greater its chance of success.


So how does a firm build its power and agility in innovation? The answer is simple and, to my mind, obvious – yet, it is not the direction in which most innovation-seeking firms seem to be channeling their efforts.

The Six Things That Make Stories Go Viral Will Amaze, and Maybe Infuriate, You

The Six Things That Make Stories Go Viral Will Amaze, and Maybe Infuriate, You | Business and Online | Scoop.it

"When Jonah Berger was a graduate student at Stanford, in the early aughts, he would make a habit of reading page A2 of the Wall Street Journal, which included a list of the five most-read and the five most-shared articles of the day. “I’d go down to the library and surreptitiously cut out that page,” he recalls. “I noticed that what was read and what was shared was often different, and I wondered why that would be.” What was it about a piece of content—an article, a picture, a video—that took it from simply interesting to interesting and shareable? What pushes someone not only to read a story but to pass it on?"

I think this sums up social media quite nicely:

"The irony, of course, is that the more data we mine, and the closer we come to determining a precise calculus of sharing, the less likely it will be for what we know to remain true. "

The Uses (and Abuses) of Influence - Part 1

The Uses (and Abuses) of Influence - Part 1 | Business and Online | Scoop.it

Robert Cialdini, considered the leading social scientist in the field of influence, was initially drawn to the topic because he saw how easily people could step over an ethical line into manipulation or even abuse. His 2001 book Influence, which laid out six principles of persuasion, was eloquent about the dangers of persuasive techniques in the wrong hands. A best-selling article he wrote for HBR the same year, “Harnessing the Science of Persuasion,” looked at the positive side of persuasion: how managers could use those principles to run their organizations more effectively.

 

Cialdini is the Regents’ Professor Emeritus of Psychology and Marketing at Arizona State University and the president of the consulting firm Influence at Work. In this edited interview with HBR executive editor Sarah Cliffe, he drills deeper into everyday uses of persuasion inside businesses and describes new research on the ethics of influence.

World Class Performers Unplug Differently

World Class Performers Unplug Differently | Business and Online | Scoop.it

 

In their pursuit of being the best in the world, how do world-class performers -- from Olympic athletes to Forbes-list business moguls -- manage the effort behind their particular tasks? How do they get so much out of themselves when they're plugged-in to their activity? And how do they unplug afterwards?

 

After spending over a decade with world-class performers, a very clear pattern has become evident: They seem to know and accept that stress is an inevitable part of life -- that it's necessary for growth and optimal performance. They also seem to understand that the recovery from stress ("unplugging") is equally important.

Marie-Brigitte Souci's curator insight, March 3, 2014 5:44 PM

It seems the more educated we become the harder it is to hold good relationships and it should not be this way. A relationship should be simple, you talk to me and I talk to you, sincerely it is that simple, maybe too simple for some.

 

We have complicated our ways with endless formulas for every aspect of life. Stop trying to lord over and control people, no one owns anyone, simply appreciate people and respect their boundaries, people do not need to like the sport you engage into nor the places you attend, simply converse without ulterior motives, sarcasm, do not unleash an avalanche of advices if not requested.


Just tell me about you, what you do, your business, the groups you belong to, what you like and dislike, you can take a whole hour to tell me about you and more, but after telling me all of this about you there should NOT be any expectation that I will do what you do nor engage in your activities  and your beliefs, and this does not mean that we cannot be friends, we can meet once in a while to catch up. It is that simple, is this too hard for some to maintain?


This is the biggest key for good relationships >>> DO NOT FORCE PEOPLE TO BECOME LIKE YOU. Control is taboo in any and every relationship, don't people know this?


The reason why relationships fail is a lack of respect, many do not have a choice but to walk or breakaway from individuals and groups.


It is very sad that the most technologically savvy and most civilised and educated generation has so many relationship issues. I hope it changes.

Forget that title! Introverts who perform are most welcome in modern workplaces. They need to ensure they are spending time building relationships and are getting their views heard by others. At the same time, extroverts need to ensure they are not hogging all the space in the conversation or dominating groups when they lack sufficient knowledge. A modern workplace also is an inclusive one.
