Change on Social: How LinkedIn Has Turned Your Resume Into A Cash Machine: News, Discussion, Expansion

Change on Social:  How LinkedIn Has Turned Your Resume Into A Cash Machine: News, Discussion, Expansion | Change Management Resources | Scoop.it

Carving out the professional cocktail party, talent pool that is LinkedIn may be the smarter strategy:  a slice of something massive in all that is social.


You may have heard the analogies before e.g. LinkedIn is the cocktail party, Facebook is the backyard B-B-Q.  Here's how LinkedIn is making it work in social in the power of that professional party niche, circa 2012 with their current successes & future plans.  ~ Deb

Web over Wheels: Change in Trends, Connectivity rules as "Manager Knows Best" era is ending

Web over Wheels:  Change in Trends, Connectivity rules as "Manager Knows Best" era is ending | Change Management Resources | Scoop.it
To get a glimpse of what tomorrow's young global managers might be like as leaders, take a look at how today's young people think about communications.


A sign of a helpful, trusted advisor is to ask smart questions.  This article does that.

The trends, surveys mentioned are also harbingers of the need for highly adaptable, flexible approaches to managing and leading in an era of continuous change.


Excerpted, HBR blogs, Sujai Hajela, VP & general manager of the Wireless Networking Business Unit at Cisco:


Today's young people are devoted to connectivity.

In a recent survey of more than 2,800 college students and young professionals in 14 countries, Cisco found that more than half said they could not live without the internet, and if forced to choose, two-thirds would opt to have the internet rather than a car.


Companies will need to ask these hard questions:

  • What is the appropriate level of openness? Should employees be prevented from slamming their bosses' ideas, for example?
  • How much blurring of public and private life is too much?
  • Social media encourages people to mix work- and nonwork-related communication, but some workers prefer to keep their social lives strictly off-limits.
  • How can the company prevent abuse of social media?  (DN: Or mitigate, educate to help prevent abuse.)
  • Do employees understand what information is confidential and what is public?



As companies resolve these issues, management styles will evolve.


Managers will no longer be able to communicate with just a small circle of trusted advisers — they'll be expected to interact digitally with a much broader range of people both inside and outside the company.

Demystifying social media, change in big business trends & structuring - McKinsey Quarterly

Demystifying social media, change in big business trends & structuring - McKinsey Quarterly | Change Management Resources | Scoop.it

"A McKinsey trio of writers call out how the vast majority of executives have no idea how to harness social media’s power, as well as how senior leaders can harness it to shape consumer decision making more predictably."


This is relevant as a change resource, as is the commentary on the article, also illuminating, including these two:  


"B2B has certainly been a slow adopter but we’ve seen a dramatic shift in just the last year...."


and


...It is no longer about how your CMO [Chief Marketing Officer] uses social media. It is about “Is your organization social-media ready?“

 

Excerpted:

 

[Social Media] is much more than ...another form of paid marketing, and it demands more too:

  • a clear framework to help CEOs and other top executives evaluate investments in it,
  • a plan for building support infrastructure, and
  • performance-management systems to help leaders smartly scale their social presence.


Companies that have these three elements in place can create critical new brand assets (such as content from customers or insights from their feedback), open up new channels for interactions (Twitter-based customer service, Facebook news feeds), and completely reposition a brand through the way its employees interact with customers or other parties.


The article includes a series of five video narrations, by David Edelman from McKinsey's Digital Marketing Strategy group.
