"Planned Obsolescence" cartoon | Tom Fishburne: Marketoonist | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
Every time I buy a new technology product, I wonder how long it will last. I salivate over anything new from Apple. But, I've had a number of Apple products fail recently.

 

This iw why I have always hated Steve Jobs :-). But Guess what ? I have an itouch, an Ipad 2 and an HTC (I had to return the first one as it was dead after less than a year, no cost but still !) and of course my husband as even more of those gadgets as I undertand men are more lured by the word "NEW" in technology.

 

Are we responsible consumers? Imagine the waste of natural resources and polution to make those futile things. Billions of people worldwide especially in growing markets may not have enough food but may have an iPhone !

Greatness is a choice | Mannaz.com | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

 

Some companies and leaders navigate in turbulent and chaotic times exceptionally well while others struggle fiercely to maintain a high level of performance. Ten years ago Jim Collins and Morten Hansen – two of the world’s most renowned management thinkers – embarked upon an ambitious journey to find out why.

 

Their findings were recently published in the book Great by Choice that praises for corporate evolution over revolution.

 

In a conversation with Morten Hansen journalist Kenneth Mikkelsen explores the leadership qualities that is needed to stay ahead and sustain success in the long run.

Arbitron Case Confirms Flaws in Minority-Audience Ratings | The Big Tent - Advertising Age

Arbitron Case Confirms Flaws in Minority-Audience Ratings | The Big Tent - Advertising Age | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

A settlement between Arbitron and the California attorney general is a wake-up call to users of media ratings: figures for minority audiences are too low.

 

The absence of a definable set of standards for multicultural research means that the media buyer is likely to encounter inaccurate ratings that result from questionable industry practices.

How Gogol* Explains the Post-Soviet World (*And Chekhov and Dostoyevsky) - By Thomas de Waal

How Gogol* Explains the Post-Soviet World (*And Chekhov and Dostoyevsky) - By Thomas de Waal | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

How about skipping the political science textbooks when it comes to trying to understand the former Soviet Union and instead opening up the pages of Nikolai Gogol, Anton Chekhov, and Fyodor Dostoyevsky?

 

This is not just a thought experiment; the works these authors wrote in the 19th and early 20th centuries turn out to be surprisingly applicable to today's politics.

Leaders Help Team Members Build a Professional Network

Leaders Help Team Members Build a Professional Network | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

While there are many articles on how to network, there are few that provide a framework for how leaders can help employees network. 

 

I would add that managers should learn how to network using socila media because the GenYers may know better than the babyboomer boss how to build effective social networks via Facebook or Twitter and Linkedin for example.

The Top 10 Time Management Lies We Tell Ourselves

The Top 10 Time Management Lies We Tell Ourselves | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

Time, as we all know, is a finite resource and some use the time we have available far better than others, with the result that they achieve more, and obtain a greater share of the spoils of success.

 

There are also an infinite number of suggestions, that one can find to pursue, in order to improve one's time management. Sometimes these will not be effective unless we first overcome our own self talk we use to justify why we don't effectively use the time we all have available.

 

This good article, outlines a whole litany of lies some of us tell ourselves, and it suggests that those who continually deceive themselves through these lies should question them every time they find themselves using them. 

 

Thanks Daniel Watson.

Twitter for Business |Are you boring your Followers on Twitter? | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

Twitter for Business:  I generally find that businesses when using Twitter focus in on one of the 3Cs

 

What is my 3C Twitter Philosophy?:

 

-Community | your current customers, potential customer and sleepers

 

-Call to Action | this is not a buy one get one free message or buy now. It is a Tweet that focuses on positioning your business so your followers are clear on what your business provides

 

-Content | these Tweets are what’s known as the added value they are generally articles that sit close to your business. That other industry leaders have written that you share with your followers that you know they are going to be interested in..
