Emotional Intelligence Predicts Job Success: Do You Have It?

Emotional Intelligence Predicts Job Success: Do You Have It? | CSUCI MGT307-04 Spring 2014 | Scoop.it
The best salespeople and leaders have a high EQ. Daniel Goleman, the man who coined the term, pulls apart the aspects of emotional intelligence.
Jonnathan Alfaro's insight:

Consider cosmetics giant L'Oreal, which has started to factor emotional intelligence in their hiring process for salespeople. Those who were recruited for their high EQ outsold their peers by over $90,000. On top of that, the high-EQ employees had 63% less turnover than the typically selected sales folk. As this and other studies show, emotional intelligence predicts success for people and the companies they work for.

HSBCVoice: Is Your Business International?

HSBCVoice: Is Your Business International? | CSUCI MGT307-04 Spring 2014 | Scoop.it
The financial and regulatory criteria that define a business as "international" can be confusing at best. But once you're aware of your business's status, there's plenty of upside to be found.
Jonnathan Alfaro's insight:

Being classified as international requires a company to comply with local workforce regulations when doing business in other countries. Governments around the world are paying closer attention to the use of local workforces by foreign businesses. As a result, businesses that fail to follow local labor and employment laws now face repercussions that are far more severe than in years past.

How Social Media Can Help (Or Hurt) You In Your Job Search

How Social Media Can Help (Or Hurt) You In Your Job Search | CSUCI MGT307-04 Spring 2014 | Scoop.it
What’s one way for hiring managers to learn who you are outside the confines of the résumé, cover letter and interview? Scanning your social media profiles. Here's what you'll want to do with you social profiles--and how to find a job on those sites.
Jonnathan Alfaro's insight:

Career transition and talent development consulting firm Lee Hecht Harrison asked hundreds of job seekers via an online poll, “How active are you on social networking sites?” Forty-eight percent said they’re very active on a daily basis, while 19% said they log on about two or three times per week. Another 22% said they use social networking sites one to three times per month, or less. Only 11% of job seekers said they never use social networking websites.



CareerBuilder also asked employers why they use social networks to research candidates, and 65% said they do it to see if the job seeker presents himself or herself professionally. About half (51%) want to know if the candidate is a good fit for the company culture, and another 45% want to learn more about his or her qualifications. Some cited “to see if the candidate is well-rounded” and “to look for reasons not to hire the candidate,” as their motives.

Japan is the second largest international market for the automaker behind Canada, accounting for 10,751 unit sales in 2013. However, the company’s unit sales rose only 1% year-on-year, while revenues decreased 11% in the country due to unfavorable currency translations last year. The launch of the Tri Glide and the Street series in Japan this year could provide an impetus to Harley-Davidson’s ambitions in the country.

Disneyland Paris celebrates 20th birthday €1.9bn in debt

Disneyland Paris celebrates 20th birthday €1.9bn in debt | CSUCI MGT307-04 Spring 2014 | Scoop.it
Theme park made losses of €55.6m last year despite charging each of its 15.7 million annual adult visitors €60 minimum a visit
Jonnathan Alfaro's insight:

On its opening day on 12 April 1992 motorists were warned of massive tailbacks near the park, then called Euro Disney, in Marne-la-Vallée about 18 miles east of Paris. The French government reckoned that up to half a million people were planning a visit on the big day. In the event the huge car park complex was only half full, suggesting only about 25,000 people turned up.

Perhaps Disney's biggest misunderstanding of its customers was a ban on wine, with staff in fancy dress only allowed to sell soft drinks and non-alcoholic "mocktails" just moments away from the world's best champagne vineyards.

The booze ban was swiftly lifted, visitor numbers began to increase and the company recorded its first quarterly profit in 1995. But rumours quickly circulated that the park was on the verge of bankruptcy and Walt Disney, which owns almost 40% of the company, and its banks were forced to bail out the park. Saudi billionaire Prince al-Waleed bin Talal also owns a 10% stake.

HSBCVoice: Navigating A New Market: Why Culture Is Key

HSBCVoice: Navigating A New Market: Why Culture Is Key | CSUCI MGT307-04 Spring 2014 | Scoop.it
Globalization is about more than just translating documents or introducing cookie-cutter systems into new geographies. The heart of a successful international expansion is an understanding of local culture.
Jonnathan Alfaro's insight:

"One way that companies can prepare for hyper-growth is through strategic hiring. Besier noted that in the case of technology companies, product research, development, operations, finance and IT can remain in the U.S.

“But when face-to-face customer interaction comes into play, local resources become critical. Functions like sales, support and local marketing execution are much more effective with dedicated local resources.”

Besier’s perspective centers on the importance of understanding regional culture. “Execution must have a local emphasis, or there is a risk of alienating customers and partners.”

Skills Needed to Survive and Thrive as a Scholar in the
21st Century: Information, Knowledge, and Publication
Management

 

 

Abstract: The changes in the way our work
is created, published, and disseminated have
implications for our own professional development
and require us to be aware of the necessary skills.
In this article, I identify three important skills
scholars need to have and tools to be effective,
efficient, and productive scholars in the 21st
century: information management, knowledge
management, and publication management.
Keywords: knowledge management, information
management, publication management, scholar
skills, adult educator

 

 

Me: I think this article highlights the scholars of the 21st century and sets up a good foundation for those scholars who are not familar with management in this era.
