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?

As professional change facilitators, we take on many roles when performing our duties: SME, educator, counselor, philosopher, etc. In my opinion, one that is among the most important in our profession, but not used nearly as much as it should be, is the role of provocateur.

Leaders Hold The Power to Engage

Leaders Hold The Power to Engage | Business change | Scoop.it
Attracting and keeping a skilled and engaged workforce is not something that can be addressed solely through recruitment and retention strategies.

 

I recently came across an article in my local newspaper, The New Zealand Herald, entitled 70% of Workers Thinking of Quitting. 

 

In it, a local recruitment company quotes a study they carried out with 10,000 employees in Australia and New Zealand in which 70% of employees say that they are considering moving jobs.  About 60% of respondents also say they feel they deserve a salary increase. The article seems to hint that employee salary expectations and thoughts about changing jobs are linked.

 

 Accompanying the article, the NZ Herald put an online poll, for which the question was “How do you feel about your salary?”  I couldn’t help thinking there was something missing.

10 Ways Customer Stories Help Companies Sell

10 Ways Customer Stories Help Companies Sell | Business change | Scoop.it
10 Ways Customer Stories Help Companies Sell http://t.co/3JwGufQB via @Savvy_B2B...

 

Woo hoo! If there was any doubt about the necessity for crafting and promoting your customer's stories, then this quick post will dispell them all.

 

Customer case study specialist Casey Hibbard shares some research from Gartner about the impact of customer stories on sales, and then lists specifically how customer stories can lead to business growth.

 

As I'm rebuilding my website, I'm taking Casey's advice -- and hope you do too. 

 

Oh -- but make sure you are actually writing customer stories to share and not testimonials. Testimonials are critical -- yet they are mostly valuable opinions from customers about their experience with you. That's part of your 'story' but they often are not really stories. 

 

Soooo -- write mini-stories or storied case-studies about your work with customers to receive the full impact of your customer stories!

Neuroscience proves stories trump facts -- free download

Neuroscience proves stories trump facts -- free download | Business change | Scoop.it

"So, if people are more likely to respond to a story, why do salespeople try to persuade customers with facts and figures?"


Hey folks -- if you want a quick and easy-to-digest post (and free download) of the neuroscience of storytelling, then go grab this article and mini e-book.


Author Michael Harris has put all the salient material together for us. It's perfect for trainings and workshops.


There are times when you audience does want facts. Just know that the order goes story first, facts second. That way you'll avoid endless debates, as Michael also points out.


If you want to dig into this topic more deeply, then read Kendall Haven's book Story Proof for all of the specific studies on storytelling and the brain.


Enjoy the rest of your day!

Starting is the Most Important Step

You probably have something you want to start.

In fact, it may have been on your mind for a long time.

Some people go a lifetime without starting......
