Credibility Builders: 9 Things To Pay Attention To | Coaching Car People | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are interested in improving your credibility / reputation online here is a good list of recommendations from John Follis at SmallBizTrends.

 

From the original article: "Whatever your business, product, or service, credibility is key. It’s also true with your personal reputation.

 

On that note, the information that appears, or doesn’t appear, whenever your name is searched on the Internet is a litmus test of your personal and professional credibility.

 

It’s called G-cred.

 

To help with that G-cred, here are 9 things you can do:"

 

Recommended. 8/10

Qualunque sia la vostra attività, prodotto o servizio, la credibilità è la base della vostra reputazione personale. In tal senso, le informazioni visualizzate o non visualizzate, ogni volta che il vostro nome viene cercato su Internet, sono una cartina di tornasole della credibilità personale e professionale. Si chiama G-cred .

The Strategic Plan is Dead. Long Live Strategy. (SSIR)

The Strategic Plan is Dead. Long Live Strategy. (SSIR) | Coaching Car People | Scoop.it

Creating strategies that are truly adaptive requires that we give up on many long-held assumptions. As the complexity of our physical and social systems make the world more unpredictable, we have to abandon our focus on predictions and shift into rapid prototyping and experimentation so that we learn quickly about what actually works...

 

 

 

...Instead of the old approach of “making a plan and sticking to it,” which led to centralized strategic planning around fixed time horizons, we believe in “setting a direction and testing to it,” treating the whole organization as a team that is experimenting its way to success.

donhornsby's curator insight, February 2, 2013 8:22 AM

(From the article): The skills and mindset for today’s strategic planning will come from continuously asking ourselves these questions about our organizations, programs, and initiatives. Once we accept Dwight D. Eisenhower’s sage advice that “Plans are useless, but planning is everything,” we will be ready to adapt to whatever curveballs the twenty-first century sees fit to throw.

Peg Gillard's curator insight, February 2, 2013 10:01 AM

Thinking and planning in this type of growth oriented mind-set could set public education on an entirely different course of growth and innovation.

Maya Mathias's curator insight, February 2, 2013 3:01 PM

Plan, then experiment and be fluid to changing course.  Adaptive strategy is THE way to succeed in the 21st Century economy.  Thoughts?

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, February 13, 2013 7:26 AM

From the article:

 

A Warm-Up Exercise for Your Listening Skills

Find a friend and try the following activity:

Conduct a conversation where the only rule is that you and your communication partner must begin each sentence with the last word of your partner’s sentence.

 

Let this run for about three minutes or, until one of you bursts into laughter with some of the resultant silly sentences.

 

 

The payoff from this simple “active listening” activity courtesy of Val and Sarah Gee writing in “Business Improv” (check out my Leadership Caffeine podcast with the authors) is to remind you how difficult it is to stay in the moment and remain focused on the words of your colleague. It takes deliberate effort to silence the symphony (or cacophony) in your mind.

 

 

While you might drive everyone nuts if you practice this technique without them knowing the rules, let the activity serve as a reminder of your obligation to listen harder and seek to understand.

Essential Elements for a Functional Team

Essential Elements for a Functional Team | Coaching Car People | Scoop.it

We have all heard the phrase “There is no I in team” over and over, but what does it really mean?  A team can only truly succeed if its players put others on the team ahead of themselves and thrive on the common purpose and performance of their goals. 

Being selfless and focused on the team goals is not easy to do all of the time, but it is necessary to do in order to have a triumphant team.
