How to Make Better Business Decisions | Social Media Today

How to Make Better Business Decisions | Social Media Today | Ignite Leadership Now | Scoop.it
Flexibility, agility and adaptability are the new competitive advantage in a business environment where change and unpredictability are the norm.
Catherine Rocheleau's insight:

Michael offers an interesting perspective in this article.  I agree that organizations large and small must better process and adapt to the information they receive to be competitive.  I also believe that sound processes and systems within the business are fundamental for the organization to be efficient.  Marrying the two concepts together is how you can manage change more effectively and quickly.  When you know the steps you take, you can easily review and adjust to achieve a different outcome.   What are your thoughts?

Facebook has already made two big changes that impacted users' privacy in 2013 and one more big change is still pending. First it was Graph Search and then it was making teens able to be publicly found.

The 4 Ways You Can Use Body Language To Influence Success

The 4 Ways You Can Use Body Language To Influence Success | Ignite Leadership Now | Scoop.it
If you see someone frowning, head bowed, shoulders slumped, it’s a fair bet they’re feeling low in confidence. But which came first: the slumped shoulders or the bad mood? 

Your body language doesn’t merely reflect your emotions, it’s often the cause. By learning some of the principal ways that your own posture, gestures, facial expression and even tone of voice affect your mind, you will be more aware of the factors influencing your mood, and give yourself an edge in presentations and negotiations.

Don Cloud's curator insight, October 24, 2013 4:32 AM

Catherine Rocheleau's insight:

Business owners and managers are well served when they hone their public speaking skills.  Good delivery engages your audience and ensures your message is heard.   There is nothing worse than sitting in the audience when the speaker isn't in touch with the audience and delivers their message poorly.

Leadership: Five Situations where Emails Fail

Leadership: Five Situations where Emails Fail | Ignite Leadership Now | Scoop.it
We just cannot imagine our life without emails, can we ? But sometimes, emails just don't work. We have to work around emails to deal with these situations .

Via Prof. Hankell
Catherine Rocheleau's insight:

Great points.  A good leader is prepared to face the tough topics in person to build the trust factor.  Email leaves so much to misinterpretation.  Three tips for dealing with sensitive situations:  role play the discussion with a Coach or trusted colleague, have notes so you stay focused on the key message (especially if emotions could rule), and use active listening techniques to ensure you are truly hearing the other person.

The Real Truth Behind The 80-20 Rule of Content Marketing - Heidi Cohen

The Real Truth Behind The 80-20 Rule of Content Marketing - Heidi Cohen | Ignite Leadership Now | Scoop.it

Want the REAL truth behind 80-20 rule of content marketing? Read Derek Halperin, Mark Schaefer, Jay Baer & Sander Biehn's input. With 7 content tips....The truth is that there’s more to the 80-20 Content Marketing Rule debate than content creation versus content distribution. The reality is that marketers can no longer place the same piece of content across multiple media entities the way the Mad Men did with traditional advertising.To this end, content must be contextually relevant to the platform and device upon which it appears to break through today’s content explosion when prospective readers choose to consume it to ensure it attracts attention. This requires more than just promotion! The information must be adopted and modified to meet the needs of each media entity.As a result, each piece of content needs additional creation to adapt it to its specific medium and device to maximize readership and consumption when, where and how people seek your content. This means that the 80-20 Content Marketing Rule is closer to a 50-50 Content Marketing Rule....

How to Effectively Segment Your Database for Lead Nurturing

How to Effectively Segment Your Database for Lead Nurturing | Ignite Leadership Now | Scoop.it
There are a thousand ways to skin a cat. Although the saying is rather grotesque, when applied to segmenting your database, it rings nothing but true. A person in an executive role, for example, requires a different piece of content than someone in an intern role. What resonates with one audience doesn’t necessarily resonate with another. I imagine that an email that would resonate with an executive would look like this:
