I heard someone say recently that the difference between networking and not working is one letter. I'm amazed how many LinkedIn requests are indiscriminately sent to acquaintances or strangers without even personalizing the generic message.
What a week. After eight years, Mark Zuckerberg takes Facebook public at a $104 billion valuation. His longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan gets her medical degree from the UC San Francisco. He has his 28th birthday.
Slowly emerged, but it’s already showing its effects: it is the connectivity revolution, as someone already called it. At the beginning was the Cluetrain Manifesto (1999) to advocate this revolution. Subsequently, with the development of social networks from 2006, Chris Anderson, Erik Qualman, David Meerman-Scott and especially Seth Godin provided the foundations for this revolution (all quotations of this post come fromSeth Godin’s blog).
The BBC's Economics correspondent Andrew Walker explains what and how important the BRICS countries are.
Since those countries recovered faster than Europe or US from the 2009 financial crisis, the economic growth will continue. Around 7% for China for example.
[In my opinion there are still great opportunities for international workers and expats to find much better jobs in the BRICS especially at executive levels or highly skilled engineers compared to Europe or North-America-Anne Egros]
How many leaders do you know (yes, please count them and let me know!) have the ability to understand another person's point of view? What happens at your boardroom table when it comes to differing perspectives?
By the age of two, children normally begin to display the fundamental behaviors of empathy by having an emotional response that corresponds with another person. Sometimes, toddlers will comfort others or show concern for them as early as age two.
So, why do adults in the workplace show little or no empathy to others? Many executives seem to have no concern for the people that work with them, in fact, their emotional response sometimes is more like a two year-old having a tantrum. What happened to their cognitive capability for empathy?
Understanding that people don't buy things because of their demographics — nobody buys something because they're a 25-30 year old white male with a college degree — but rather, because they go about living their life and some situation arises in which they need to solve a problem... and so they "hire" a product to do the job. This is a big "ah ha" to many folks when they first hear it; but when you really boil it down, the true power of this is in giving people in business a frame with which to exercise empathy. In fact, both Akio Morita of Sony and Steve Jobs were famous for never commissioning market research — instead, they'd just walk around the world watching what people did. They'd put themselves in the shoes of their customers.
Serious people will regularly dismiss empathy for the more concrete and defensible virtues of rational analysis. You'll get no argument from me that this absolutely has its place. However, depending on it alone to form your opinion can cause you to miss six billion other very valuable sources of insight.
