If you are looking for additional reasons to include and manage social networks in your organization think about this…

 

The Nielsen rankings help networks and advertisers determine the value of a show – how much to invest in it – how much to charge advertisers – how much to pay the actors – basically everything. The Nielsen ranking is the “standard” for determining popularity which equals income.

Steve's HR Technology - Journal - The Wisdom of Jeff Van Gundy - Part VI | Symbolist - Recognition & Reward Compendium | Scoop.it

Organizations talk a lot about leadership development, building leadership pipelines, and the importance of leadership in the modern age. And while formal leadership capability is certainly important, I wonder if informal, in the trenches, and demonstrated by example leadership from those key players on the team that don't really have formal leadership titles or responsibility is equally important.

 

NOTE FROM ME:  this post is about leadership and basketball - but it is also about where people get their motivation - not always from a program.

Incentives Don’t Work If Behavior Isn’t Decision-Based « I2I – Incentive Intelligence | Symbolist - Recognition & Reward Compendium | Scoop.it

One of the least obvious and possibly the most important reason changing behavior is tough is because we don’t really understand just how much our environment – and the routines we impose on them – influence our choices. We think behaviors are in our heads. We think our behaviors are decisions we make and therefore we can control them. We believe behavior is all about will power and choosing to do something different. Not always.

9 ways to sink employee engagement

9 ways to sink employee engagement | Symbolist - Recognition & Reward Compendium | Scoop.it
Over the past few weeks, I’ve seen several articles outlining ways to boost worker motivation. Many of the ideas are worthwhile—such as asking employees for their input, and truly considering it. But experts have been sharing this counsel for years, and surveys show that employee engagement continues to decline.

 

I’d like to take a slightly different approach in this post and focus on nine specific things that damage engagement. Most of these fall in the category of “it seemed like a good idea at the time.”
