What Employees to be More Engaged? Involve Them in Strategic Planning

What Employees to be More Engaged? Involve Them in Strategic Planning | How Collaboration Can Keep Your L>C | Scoop.it
It’s no secret that employees are more engaged when they know their work is meaningful.

Via ValerieMalaval
Tom Hood's insight:

I think Sandy Carter from IBM said, "Culture eats strategy for lunch." Connecting your employees (I prefer team) to your strategy is a critical part of building and strengthening your culture. It is truly the flywheel effect that Jim Collins talks about. SWOT is definitely one way, we have developed our own process we use ourselves and with our members and their companies and organizations. It is called i2a:Insights to Action and is modular which allows for engagement and alignment at different stages. I think the key takeaway is that you need to think about how you can engage your team in your strategy. 


With over 100 strategic plans and the future forums for the AICPA CPA Horizons 2025 Project, let us know if your oirganization needs help with strategy?

Social Media Has Changed What It Means To Be A Leader | How Collaboration Can Keep Your L>C | Scoop.it

Despite its increasing popularity with employees, consumers, and as a source of competitive advantage, many leaders still shy away from social media. They fear making a mistake, the lack of control, and being overwhelmed by information.

Hello. My name is Youga Fally Mbengue. I am Senegalese, 30 years old. I have discovered this wieb site and I see that I have found what I was loooking for. I followed English studies and I graduated in 2009 in American Literature and Civilization. Since 2009, I have been unemployed because of this wrong governmental system. For 4 years I have been looking for a job, in vain. I come now to discover to web site, I read the testimonial of successful work partners and I became convince by the possibilities you offer.
I am among the rarest Senegalese people who master the English Language and who are aware of the worldwide technological development. My love for the English Language, My lust for a job, and my understanding of the new world order are my assets to work with you.
I confess, I have no experience in Marketing, or Sale and I have never had a bank account but I really wish to work with you nomatter how. I send you attached the scanned copy of my passport to prove my words and make sure that I am not a scammer as there are in African countries.
I need someone to guide me step by step, hoping that I will be the first Senegalese to ever become a millionnaire working online.
Thank you for your assistance.

The emerging workplace is both a space and a place. We no longer need to be side-by-side, but it does not preclude this from happening. Too often, people use digital technology to send a message when they could walk down the hall.

This educator describes how Scoop.it can be the tool by which you teach students to gather, manage, and evaluate information. I 100% agree with his caveat at the bottom that Scoop.it doesn't do the teaching but because it is so simple and seamless and allows for so much interaction and feedback between student curator and instructor, it is the perfect medium for it.

Imagine getting all of the key notes of the thought leaders in the conference pushed to you in real time. That is why we love Twitter with our conferences.

 

We have found twitter to be a great learning augmentation and support tool for conferences and key leanring events. We use a hashtag and then produce a tweetbook post conference and share with attendees. These community notelbooks are great to recap conferences in blog posts, share learning with people unable to attend, and extend the insights from the conferences.

My Voice National Student Report 2012:


Via Mary Perfitt-Nelson

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, February 4, 2013 6:27 AM

My Voice provides educators with a powerful tool for understanding both what motivates and inspires students to achieve, and how well students believe their school is meeting those objectives. My Voice is a powerful tool for initiating innovative, meaningful school reform.  

 

Global summary:  

 

Student-teacher relationships, which can be powerful contributors to student engagement
and academic success, are in need of improvement; moreover, perceptions of studentteacher relationships appear to weaken, rather than strengthen, through the middle school
and into the high school years.
– At all levels of secondary education, students need to be more engaged—and trends across
the grade levels suggest this problem gets worse, not better, the longer students are in
school; and
– While learning in school in general is perceived as important, it is not perceived as
particularly relevant to many students’ lives, and this perceived relevance generally declines
as students progress through school.

 

This document needs to be read and read well for those looking to change the culture of their building.

Your Network: Professional Context vs. Personal Context | How Collaboration Can Keep Your L>C | Scoop.it

What Reid Hoffman writes in this post might be obvious to some but it's a fundamental point I see others overlook more often than not. Context is really important both in real life and on social media.

If you extend that train of thought, you realize that the topic you're addressing also changes the context. Which is why bringing curation with the right context under a topic-centric model is so important.

You bet. But informing his decision is the knowledge that he is a constant learner. His participation in several online communities, including Khan Academy and P2PU, the online peer-to-peer university, is helping him sharpen technical skills he hasn’t used recently.

Leaders need to think about failure as a process we go through rather than an event to avoid at all costs.

 

I crashed my car recently. It was about 8 a.m. I was in a rush (what else is new?) to get to a meeting for a nonprofit I belong to. I learned how to drive in Thailand, so I’m rather proud of my driving reflexes — even pride myself on holding my own with the cab drivers in New York City. The car in front of me stopped. Unfortunately I didn’t.


The good news is that I emerged totally functional (or at least no more dysfunctional than usual). The other piece of good news is that the experience taught me some lessons on how to fail well. It taught me that we need to think about failure as a process we go through rather than an event to avoid at all costs.

"This 72-page booklet that seeks to develop a universal framework for people of all ages and cultural backgrounds to tackle big problems in their communities.

Social Media Changing Us, Society & the Power of the Human Connection

Social Media Changing Us, Society & the Power of the Human Connection | How Collaboration Can Keep Your L>C | Scoop.it

This wonderful piece was written by Milas Page - it is inspiring, it is true and it's what's is happening to many people as a result of interacting in social media.

 

The author talks about the "social mindset" connecting as human beings is what gets you in the door......

 

Here are some highlights:

 

**The Social Mindset sees the value in collaboration

 

**The Social Mindset cares about others – be it your customers, your employees, or your partners

 

**The Social Mindset lays the groundwork for the importance of listening

 

**The Social Mindset leads you to realize you can help – therefore makes you open to helping when an opportunity arises

 

**The Social Mindset surrounds you with positive thinking and empowers you to realize you can make a change

 

What's the point, she asks? I'm quoting Milas because I couldn't have said it better..........

 

An interaction like the she refers to in this piece is between her and another person whom in the past she would have closed the door  but social media has made her see people in a different light.

 

"Tirelessly one door at a time, trying to activate communities. Now an interaction like that can not only reach me, it can reach you.

 

Messages amplified, reach expanding.Making the human connection is what get’s you in the door."

 

** "Then think about the implications this has in our world, I believe it has many and it’s a good thing. Companies and people who embrace social as a mindset will change this world, one person – one cause, one workplace at a time"

 

How has it changed you?
