Social Media Changing Us, Society & the Power of the Human Connection

Social Media Changing Us, Society & the Power of the Human Connection | Business change | Scoop.it

This wonderful piece was written by Milas Page - it is inspiring, it is true and it's what's is happening to many people as a result of interacting in social media.

 

The author talks about the "social mindset" connecting as human beings is what gets you in the door......

 

Here are some highlights:

 

**The Social Mindset sees the value in collaboration

 

**The Social Mindset cares about others – be it your customers, your employees, or your partners

 

**The Social Mindset lays the groundwork for the importance of listening

 

**The Social Mindset leads you to realize you can help – therefore makes you open to helping when an opportunity arises

 

**The Social Mindset surrounds you with positive thinking and empowers you to realize you can make a change

 

What's the point, she asks? I'm quoting Milas because I couldn't have said it better..........

 

An interaction like the she refers to in this piece is between her and another person whom in the past she would have closed the door  but social media has made her see people in a different light.

 

"Tirelessly one door at a time, trying to activate communities. Now an interaction like that can not only reach me, it can reach you.

 

Messages amplified, reach expanding.Making the human connection is what get’s you in the door."

 

** "Then think about the implications this has in our world, I believe it has many and it’s a good thing. Companies and people who embrace social as a mindset will change this world, one person – one cause, one workplace at a time"

 

How has it changed you?

What is your social mindset?  


If you're afraid of using social media, does it mean you are afraid of living in the 21st century?

It Gets Better With Age

It Gets Better With Age | Business change | Scoop.it

“The average founder of a high-tech startup isn’t a whiz-kid graduate, but a mature 40-year-old engineer or business type with a spouse and kids who simply got tired of working for others,” says Duke University scholar Vivek Wadhwa, who studied 549 successful technology ventures. And “according to data from the Kauffman Foundation, the highest rate of entrepreneurship in America has shifted to the 55–64 age group, with people over 55 almost twice as likely to found successful companies than those between 20 and 34.”


Despite compelling evidence that we should be seeking out more experienced workers, we continue to put our eggs in the ‘younger the better’ basket. If we want an injection of innovation, it’s time we recognize that life doesn’t end at age 40.

Change Leader, Change Thyself

Change Leader, Change Thyself | Business change | Scoop.it

Organizational change is inseparable from individual change. Simply put, change efforts often falter because individuals overlook the need to make fundamental changes in themselves. Anyone who pulls the organization in new directions must look inward as well as outward.

Organizations don’t change—people do
Joyce Layman's curator insight, April 4, 9:25 AM

An American Management Association study of Fortune 500 companies found that “…less than 50% of changes in their organizations were successful, and that employee resistance was the main reason for failures.”  This is why it's necessary to focus on the person.

Susan Burnell's curator insight, April 4, 9:43 AM

"DATA NOW STREAM from daily life: from phones and credit cards and televisions and computers; from the infrastructure of cities; from sensor-equipped buildings, trains, buses, planes, bridges, and factories. The data flow so fast that the total accumulation of the past two years—a zettabyte—dwarfs the prior record of human civilization. “There is a big data revolution,” saysWeatherhead University Professor Gary King. But it is not the quantity of data that is revolutionary. “The big data revolution is that now we can do something with the data.” "

5G Will Change the Game Again

5G Will Change the Game Again | Business change | Scoop.it

Remember when we had 1G back in the 1980s? No? That’s because back then so few thought there would ever be something faster and better. And it took a long time to get to 2G, which finally occurred in the 1990s. It took the better part of yet another decade to get up to 3G. For those of you who noticed, it took less time to get to what most of us now use, 4G, and we all know it is much faster.

Why did the advancements take so long, and when will we get 5G?
