Winning the Generation Game - Crossing Over

Winning the Generation Game - Crossing Over | Practical Influencing: Trust Me | Scoop.it

“WHY do you pander to them?” This question kept being put to Marian Salzman, the boss of Havas PR, by her older workers in the days after the firm launched its latest recruitment ad..."

 

...A recent survey by Ernst & Young, which asked American professionals from each age group their opinions of each generation, found significant differences, not all of them predictable.  (Chart in original source.)

 

 ....To get them to work together ...[Ernst & Young] is encouraging them ...do voluntary work in cross-generational teams. Millennials may be cool with this; their older peers not so much.

Connect the dots, from the article - Baby-boomers, GenX and Millenials.  Which group is seen as:

  • hard-working and productive
  • best team players
  • good at tech stuff but truculent  & work-shy?


This piece shares research and raises state-of-the-practice questions about how to work across generational differences.

Great post and free e-book from leadership expert Karin Hurt from @LetsGrowLeaders.    I totally agree with Karen's views on Parenting and Leadership.  Here is just one example:


It’s interesting to see leaders who take their servant leadership philosophy seriously at work, but have a more hovering approach when it comes to their children. In an effort to protect and scaffold, they actually overlook natural opportunities for their children to emerge as leaders.


The best way to learn the piano is to practice.


The best way to learn to do a flip-turn is to get in the pool and get some water up your nose.


The best way to learn leadership is by leading.


Our children surprise us when we stop looking for perfection and see the leaders that they are becoming.

So many times we allow our assumptions to deceive us.  


Leadership and self mastery requires us to question the lies our assumptions may be telling us in order to avoid unnessesary conflict.

Pinterest Rolls Out Business Accounts: How to Set Up Yours

Pinterest Rolls Out Business Accounts: How to Set Up Yours | Practical Influencing: Trust Me | Scoop.it

Pinterest announced that it's now allowing users to set up business accounts (as opposed to personal accounts), along with releasing business-specific terms of service, separate from the TOS for regular folks.


Pinterest cited the contribution of quality content from the business community as a reason for launching these business-specific accounts


Great job HubSpot for sharing this useful piece, including converting personal accounts to business accounts (those that are already mostly business accounts anyway!)

 

 

Excerpts:

 

How to Convert Your Personal Pinterest Account Into a Business Account

 

Step 1: Go to business.pinterest.com, and click the red 'Convert your existing account' button.

 

Step 2: Next, select your 'Business Type,' and update your 'Contact Name,' and 'Email Address,' if necessary.

One Simple Thought That Can Improve Every Relationship

One Simple Thought That Can Improve Every Relationship | Practical Influencing: Trust Me | Scoop.it

 

I’ve often wished for a magic wand that I could wave to fix my relationships with others – especially after there has been a confrontation and we’re hanging on by our fingertips or just simple awkwardness because of something I said.

 

Twenty years ago, a woman named Lexi passed along something to me that her father had said to her. “It is more important to be loving than right.” It struck me like a lightning bolt! “It is more important to be loving than right.”

 

I immediately began to recall the many situations in my life where I felt the need to demonstrate to others that I was “right” (thereby leaving the other person “wrong”) on subjects ranging from baseball scores to scientific theories. Did proving myself “right” make me feel superior? Even if it did, what impact did it have on the other person? What affect did it have on my relationship with the other person, especially someone very close to me?

 

We all know the answers. It didn’t make the other person feel good about me and it adversely affected our relationship.
