Church leaders - Pastors, especially!!!  -- need to pay careful attention to this critical part of growing your ministry.  DELEGATION builds the team, makes the Pastor more effective-- not only because many hands lighten the load, but equally true that the reallocation of time and internal peace is what many Pastors need to remain revitalized, effective, and not burned out.  Trust in your team is what builds a great organization!

We know the Title play a key role since it impacts so many seo metrics and that by having the same H1 Title with congruent content and context on multiple social channels → this  reinforces the notion that the sum of the parts is greater than the whole especially if your title looks something like this;

Daniel Watson's curator insight, April 1, 2014 6:29 PM


Hiring mistakes can be very costly for business owners, yet businesses continue to hire the wrong people over and over again, despite the fact that there are ways to reduce the number of bad hires made in staffing a business.


Apart from making hasty decisions without due consideration of process and role requirements, the main cause of bad hires is not learning enough from the applicants during the interview process, resulting in the hiring of individuals who are wrong for the role itself and/or are a bad fit for the business culture that prevails.


This excellent Slideshare presentation, suggests employers need to get a good handle on applicants personalities and life values to be able to make better hires, and it offers a framework in which business owners can operate to achieve this end.

I wish it were that simple, but it's not. If you want to build authority, focus on a single topic, spread that knowledge through frequent updates and posts to Groups, and grow your network. That takes a bit of focus that goes beyond 15 minutes.

חשוב להתיחס למדיה כמו למקום עבודה - התדמית שאתה רוצה להקרין במקום עבודה - תקרין במדיה חברתית.

מומלץ לבחור טוב את תמונת הפרופיל, שהתמונות המפורסמות יהיו הולמות ורצוי לא להתבדח יתר על המידה.

10 Timeless Leadership Lessons to Help Expand Your Influence

 

#leadership #management #business

donhornsby's curator insight, May 22, 2014 9:14 AM

Leaders must take more time to stop, reflect and assess their own thinking, capabilities and aptitudes. 

 

 

(From the article): As leaders, you must begin to look beyond the obvious and open your eyes to see the opportunities previous unseen.   Leadership requires you to have circular vision and when you begin to grow complacent, you only see the obvious details before you – rather than those they lie around, beneath and beyond what you seek.  In fact, your mindset becomes stagnate because you are not stretching your perspectives enough to see more than you want to.

 

When you fall into this trap, it’s time to reshuffle the deck, and map out the internal and external factors that are influencing your thinking. You must begin to identify areas that can be improved –  such as relationships, workshop culture, networking, how you are investing in yourself (or lack thereof), etc.

 

It’s not experience, but rather opportunity that is the true mother of success.   Be more mindful about how you manage opportunity before it begins to manage you.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 22, 2014 10:41 AM

The first lesson is a good place to begin. We become so busy we do not look up and from side-to-side. Leaders need to be present and aware of what is happening and not happening. They need to be aware of who is best served to take the reins in a given situation.

 

In School, leadership and management should be intertwined. Quite often, I found that the latter was used almost exclusively and leadership did not exist.

Top 3 Tips From A LinkedIn Expert

Top 3 Tips From A LinkedIn Expert | Good Growth | Scoop.it

 

I’ve been a user and fan of LinkedIn for several years and am currently enjoying reading The Startup of You by LinkedIn co-Founder Reid Hoffman. Although it has its detractors and plenty of room for improvement, LinkedIn has become perhaps the most widely used business tool since email itself.

 

And yet even if it’s used, how many of us use it correctly, or to its full potential? Many people set up a profile, connect with some friends, and then leave it at that. Another class of LinkedIn users are much more active, but perhaps too active, spamming their connections and LinkedIn groups with get-rich-quick schemes or articles, the posting of which is designed more to bring attention to the one doing the posting than to provide any true value to LinkedIn users.

 

Recently I met Alex Pirouz, a successful entrepreneur and author. In talking with Alex I learned he was featured in the book Getting Your Business LinkedIn, so I asked him to give me his top three LinkedIn tips. Here they are, in Alex’s own words:

5 Ways to Create New Prospects in LinkedIn

5 Ways to Create New Prospects in LinkedIn | Good Growth | Scoop.it

B2B Marketers know that LinkedIn is a gold mine of potential to create relationships, manage customers, and stay in touch with colleagues. But have you ever considered LinkedIn as a prospecting tool? Learn 5 ways to create new prospects, right in LinkedIn.


1. LinkedIn Answers

Take a look at your 1st level connections that you’d like to develop more, and see if there is a common thread that occurs in their recent activity. Write a LinkedIn Answers question on their challenges, frustrations and roadblocks and invite these connections to respond. Likewise, you should be answering other peoples questions, while mining the connections on your LinkedIn Answers, and Groups.


2. LinkedIn Groups

As mentioned in a previous post, LinkedIn Groups are a great place to see and be seen. It is an opportunity to ask questions, respond to others, and create relationships. Be careful not to get too salesy in your questions or responses. You want to add thought leadership, insight and value to the conversation. If someone is impressed enough with your response or even your question, they can peruse your profile to learn more about your company. Create groups around clusters of people with whom you can relate, add value, and gain trust in order to develop those relationships into prospects. The added bonus of a Group is that you can email members directly on a weekly basis.


3. Introductions

Take a look at your 1st degree connections’ connections. Does anyone look like a potential prospect to you? If you have a great rapport with your 1st level connection, ask them for an introduction to their 1st degree connection (and hence, your 2nd degree connection). Be smart about these requests, and enlighten your connection on how this introduction may be beneficial not only to their connection, but to your connection as well.


4. Recommendations

Look through your updates for anyone your connections might have recommended recently. The person recommended is in the limelight, so why not share the love? Strike while the iron is hot and ask for an introduction to this newly recommended connection.

 

5. Companies

Say you want to get to the decision maker at a company, but aren’t sure how to get there. Take a look at the company profile and search through the employees. Are you a 1st degree connection with someone there? Can they expand your connections with introduction to other employees in the program? While these people may not be the decision maker, they can be your advocate giving you important company information and insight.


A word of caution: be smart in how you use LinkedIn to prospect. Overdoing blind connection requests or pestering someone with too many introduction requests can work against you in this social media outlet. As my mother always said– and I think this can apply to LinkedIn behavior — treat others as you would have them treat you.
