How One Simple Change Can Make You A Better Listener

How One Simple Change Can Make You A Better Listener | cooperative intelligence | Scoop.it
It sounds easy, but it's surprisingly hard for most of us: To become a better listener, stop focusing on what you'll say next.

Via Anne Leong
Ellen Naylor's insight:

Excellent article on listening, which will give you a competitive advantage regardless of your profession. Effective listeners put themselves in a thinking mindset. This gives you a chance to really try to understand what is going on around you. Taking the thinking perspective is the conversational equivalent of the carpenter’s saying "Measure twice, cut once." The ability to extract what people mean from a conversation is one of the most important attributes of any leader. It requires curbing your natural tendency to jump right to a solution to people’s problems.

The pdf list that this curator has provided is amazing!  You can use this document to one stop shop for a degree / certificate program in almost any field of intelligence (national, global, geospatial, business, competitive, etc.).  This volume of programs on this list is a testament to the growth in the intelligence field!  The only item it sadly lacks is a Doctorate program in intelligence.

Is Competitive Intelligence Ethical?

Is Competitive Intelligence Ethical? | cooperative intelligence | Scoop.it

competitive intelligenceIn the past decades, there have been many infamous incidences of competitive intelligence gone astray. However, not all intelligence-gathering practices are unethical. There is a definite line between competitive intelligence and corporate espionage, and it’s important to know what constitutes what. Competitive intelligence may have gotten a bad name from those who have chosen to act unethically, but it’s actually a very worthwhile way to gain pertinent insights about current market standards and practices. Of course, we are probably all familiar with the benefits of market research, but because competitive intelligence falls in the murky middle ground between market research and corporate espionage, how do you know define what practices are ethical or not?


Via Bonnie Hohhof
Ellen Naylor's insight:

#Competitive #intelligence continues to be a murky profession, since it's not clear what practices are ethical. While #SCIP has ethical guidelines, as do other professions like #AIIP or #SLA, you need to decide what feels right as an individual and follow your company's ethical guidelines.

Getting to know your competition is a must before developing any business or marketing strategy.

Protect Your Business From Competitive Intelligence

Protect Your Business From Competitive Intelligence | cooperative intelligence | Scoop.it

The term "competitive intelligence" is the process of legally gathering information about one's competitors to gain a strategic advantage in the marketplace. Large corporations will have strategic intelligence experts as a part of their marketing department. These experts specialize in discovering promotional activities, sales figures, and other information about the company's competitors. Ideally, strong competitive intelligence enables a company to predict the strategy of a competitor and adapt with a strategy of its own that will result in an advantage in the marketplace. The good news is that small and medium-sized businesses are not usually the targets of professional competitive intelligence experts. However, a business owner would be wise to protect itself from amateur intelligence gathering by its competitors. Competitive intelligence gathering begins by identifying the strategy of your own business and how your competitor's strategy will interfere. Then the intelligence gathering begins.
