A business website needs to be a "work in progress" for it to remain effective...

WEDCBiz's curator insight, January 9, 5:27 PM

Building a strong online presence takes time and effort but is well worth the investment.

iMet Global's curator insight, January 10, 1:27 AM

Engagement. That is the keyword. And given that content is the very structure upon which all online branding takes place, it is vital to get it right on your website. The website is usually the first part of the online positioning kit for a brand.

Work smarter, not harder in 2014 to grow your business to record highs.

 

Focus on what your strengths and stick to your core business.

 

Eliminate distractions and get your tasks done. 

 

Get plenty of rest to support proper brain function and health!

Three excellent tips. I would add also consider being diligent in using a calendar and especially calendar reminders to alert you to items and tasks you deem important for the future. Set it and forget it, (for now), helps clear the mind in many instances!

The Evolution Of Strategy

The Evolution Of Strategy | Business, Economics, Sports | Scoop.it

Strategy needs to evolve.  As Rita Gunther McGrath explains in her new book, The End of Competitive Advantage, strategy is now a game that looks more like World of Warcraft then the game of kings.  You never actually win, but are always questing, gaining new skills and resources along the way and continually seeking the next challenge.Often, a vision has a shelf life. And that’s the problem with a vision, it’s almost impossible to distinguish it from a delusion. Furthermore, it is prone to survival bias—we remember the few that succeed, but the legions of failures are mostly lost to history..


Via Bonnie Hohhof
Marcellus Maxximus's insight:

I read this becasue Strategy is key in the business world, you always have to come up with different strategies to please different kinds of people. Its turning somewhat into survival bias, because we are only remembering the few that succeed.

Business becomes even more compact when you just have to take your phone with you. If the trends continue, about a year from now they'll be about 10 billion mobile devices being used in the marketplace and only around 9 billion people on the planet . The message becomes: If you don't know how to run your business from a mobile device, it's time you started learning because your competitors are.

Why Good Leaders Don't Always Negotiate

Why Good Leaders Don't Always Negotiate | Business, Economics, Sports | Scoop.it

With this erosion of strict authority structures in organisations, the question then becomes: If leaders and managers are no longer in the comfortable position of dictating policy, products or direction, how can they make effective change?

 

They have to win people over, that's how. They have to constantly persuade others to go along with their ideas. In short, leaders have to negotiate with practically everyone.

 

While negotiation may be the best way to work out differences, there may be times when you’re better off simply making a decision and acting on it. If you’re in a leadership position, this may mean doing things your way regardless of the concerns or interests of the other party or parties.


Via Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor
Marcellus Maxximus's insight:

I scooped this because I think of myself as a good leader and I wanted to see what some good leaders do. And to be honest I thought in business you always had to negotiate at some time or another.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's curator insight, January 7, 5:39 PM

As companies look to level their organisational structures, negotiating will be key but it's not always recommended.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 1, 6:15 PM

Hopefully, this flatter structure will move into public education.

10 Things to Do Every Workday

Ever feel as if, in the quest to get everything done, you're not quite doing enough?

 

 

For example, you've heard on various occasions (including once or twice from us) how important it is to keep in touch with former colleagues, whether you have strong ties or weak ones. But corresponding with old colleagues takes time--time that could be spent doing your actual job or bonding with new coworkers.

All business owners measure success in different ways, and all have different aspirations in terms of what constitutes ultimate success for them, but those seeking massive success need to chart a specific course.


Chasing massive success, requires a distinctly different mindset and a total focus on achieving the desired outcome, as well as the knowledge of how to succeed where most fail.


This excellent article suggests there are numerous examples of individuals who have completely transformed their lives, their relationships, their health, their businesses, and their income in surprisingly short periods of time, and it offers 12 tips that can be used as a blueprint by business owners seeking to emulate the massive success of others.
