Did you know that visuals are processed 60,000 times faster than text? Or how about the fact that they are processed simultaneously?


Ever wonder why you can process visuals so much faster than text? This is because visuals are processed simultaneously whereas words are processed sequentially.


Did you know that visual imagery is more powerful than words alone when used to communicate a message to an audience. . .

 When you are open you are free to see things as they really are and to respond quickly and appropriately without the baggage of hidden agendas and ego trips.

  • Leaders who are open listen deeply, observing the spoken and unspoken communication.
  • Leaders who are open search for the truth, even when it isn’t safe or flattering.
  • Leaders who are open seek to understand reality before they act.
  • Leaders who are open are humble and flexible in their approach.
  • Leaders who are open accept criticism and failure as paths to learning.
  • Leaders who are open are willing to express their humanity.
  • Leaders who are open invite others to know them.

We all have bad habits in real life. Why can't technology help cure them? While technology should help us break bad habits, all too often it makes things worse.

Are you guilty of a bad tech habit? Here are 21 of the worst technology-oriented habits, plus potential fixes for all of them. (And we have a bonus at the end, on mending bad email habits.)

Don Dea's curator insight, May 12, 2013 12:53 AM

The ambiguous compliment. Let’s start with the case when your language leaves a little something to be desired: “A good meal from you is a rare treat.”  What you meant to say is that the meal was a treat that you rarely are ever able to have from anyone else, but instead it sounds like you meant that it’s rare for the cook to do a good job.  The problem is that “rare” can have more than more than one meaning, making it lexically ambiguous.  To avoid this type of inadvertent insult, make sure that you think about what you’re going to say, and possible double meanings, before you utter it. In general, this is a good rule of thumb in allcommunications, but especially when you’re discussing a sensitive matter.

Nonprofits always have an uphill battle — how to get the most value while spending very little money. After all, as much of the money a nonprofit can generate is meant to help the cause itself. Social media marketing is one low-cost tool that can help.

In this post I’m highlighting 3 cool platforms that are helping nonprofits get the most bang for their marketing buck on social media!

StayClassy

StayClassy.org
I met some of the team behind StayClassy a couple of weeks ago and was very impressed by both the people, and the platform. The company’s mission is to help leaders of nonprofit organizations build successful online fundraising programs & increase their overall impact.

Some pretty big names are already using StayClassy, including Oxfam and the National Breast Cancer Foundation.  I love their integrated approach to bring all fundraising efforts into one platform.  Nonprofits can accept donations from a website, create custom fundraising campaigns for marketing, launch peer-to-peer fundraising campaigns, and sell tickets or registrations to events.

Miscommunication

The challenge of communication isn't to never miscommunicate, it's to cut down the time between the interaction and the realization that the communication didn't get through.

Don Dea's curator insight, May 18, 2013 3:14 AM

Phone calls, for example, lead to less miscommunication than instructions sent by mail. A cycle of clarity is built into the medium. "Huh?" is a perfectly appropriate way to ask someone to refine a message. Conversations are more clear than marching orders, because conversations have built-in error detection and correction.

Organizations that are good at flagging the misunderstood internal messages are far more likely to move quickly, in sync, than the ones that assume that messages from on high are never to be questioned. When in doubt, ask.
