You might wonder sometimes, perhaps after an especially inane quarterly job review, what it would be like not to have a boss. Or, after that same job review, not to be a boss. What if we were all workplace equals, with everyone possessing the same privileges and the same authority?...

The Idea of the Customer comes first, then the plan to pull them into your market

Ray Beauchamp's curator insight, December 28, 2013 4:23 PM

"the purpose of business is to create a customer, the business enterprise has two–and only two–basic functions: marketing and innovation. Marketing and innovation produce results; all the rest are costs".

An Online Network Supports The Growing World Of Young Female Entrepreneurs

An Online Network Supports The Growing World Of Young Female Entrepreneurs | Business Development for the Entrepreneurs | Scoop.it

When Washington State native Jennifer Donogh was recruited out of college by her parents to take an ownership stake in Ovaleye, their cloud computing and web hosting company, she discovered that the conventional networking model--cocktail parties and conferences stocked with middle-aged business owners--was of little benefit for her. “I was 22 years old, this girl at the networking events, where people were like, ‘Oh, are you here for your mom?’” she remembers. “It was really uncomfortable. I’d always leave feeling horrible about myself.”

 

Frustrated, Donogh went out looking for her peers, and found a girlfriend who was hosting an all-female meetup group in her living room for five or so young women who had made the decision to leave the corporate workforce and strike out on their own. When the friend had a baby, Donogh took over the group’s leadership, and coined its new name: Young Female Entrepreneurs. “I changed the name to make it very black and white: This group is for women in their 20s and 30s that own their own businesses,” Donogh says. “We moved into the boardroom of a local co-working space [in Seattle], and about 12 or 15 people would show up. It was growing in popularity. But I live out in the rural Northwest, so to drive into the city for in-real-life stuff was just silly.”

 

Luckily, thanks to Ovaleye, Donogh had the resources to move the community online, launching the YFE website at the beginning of 2011. “That’s when it really took off,” she says. “People would search for ‘young female entrepreneurs,’ and of course we would pop up. I had people in New York contacting me and asking, ‘Why can’t we have YFE here?’”...

I'd add to this....share with customers what you know about them...without telling them directly -- naturally.  It's important to let your market know you understand and feel their pains.  It's great when you share there pain.

What's the Difference Between Leadership and Management?

What's the Difference Between Leadership and Management? | Business Development for the Entrepreneurs | Scoop.it

Management and leadership practises were once just a subject for TV sitcoms – the Office's David Brent, a master of 'management speak', was celebrated as an example of all that is bad about bosses.

 

But recent scandals, such as those concerning the BBC, NHS and the banking sector, have forced the debate about management and leadership up the agenda. Employers and politicians alike are now asking how our public and private bodies should be organised – and how we can prepare the next generation of leaders.

 

Key to the problem is understanding the difference between management and leadership, says John Kotter, Konosuke Matsushita professor of leadership at Harvard University. He fears that too often, employers use the terms synonymously.

The turth is, we need both leaders and managers. One cannot exist without the other. Too often wwe look for ways to segregate ourselves along artificial lines. The key is to build bridges that unite and define, not barriers that divide and deminish.
