On the Job: Introverts win in the end

On the Job: Introverts win in the end | Interesting topics | Scoop.it
Extroverts aren't the most successful in the long run at work; instead, the quiet, neurotic, introverted employees who often fret about what others think of them come out on top, according to a new study.

Marja Wouters's curator insight, January 25, 2013 6:20 AM

Marja Wouters's comment, Today, 11:52 AMI am still very skeptical about crowdfunding becoming a factor of importance in The Netherlands. Think there will be major changes needed both in the giving culture of it's citizens as well as in the tax laws of our country. And most important: the politicians need to change their negative attitude towards the arts before anything towards a different system of investing in the arts can and will succeed.
Lalita Krishna's comment, January 25, 2013 8:00 AM
I am also skeptical. I think it puts another burden of content creators to keep track of funds and be accountable. In Canada we have a lot of issues on Taxes and what is considered a grant versus a donation.
Therese Lemarchand's comment, January 27, 2013 3:33 PM
In response to previous comments, in any kind of funds, taxes are an issue, as are production costs to a creator. Crowdfunding allows to enlarge the basis of funders, and I am convinced it will become of great importance for institutions, and especially in France where the state disengages.

Internews Humanitarian Media Roster

Internews Humanitarian Media Roster | Interesting topics | Scoop.it

Internews is looking for professionals to join the Internews Humanitarian Media Roster to respond to crises and emergencies around the world.

During humanitarian disasters people affected by the unfolding tragedy need more than physical necessities. They also have an urgent need for information. In the aftermath of a crisis, from earthquakes, to armed conflicts, survival can depend on knowing the answers to essential questions. Should I stay with my family or go for help? Where is the nearest health facility? What is the extent of the damage? Where can I get clean water? What are the symptoms of cholera? Is it safe to go back home?

To strengthen its immediate response capacity in emergency situations, Internews’ Humanitarian Information Project (HIP) has created a standing roster of humanitarian communication experts and media professionals.

Need some ideas on ways you can use your customer stories?


This is a handly list that will get you started. There were a few I hadn't really considered before.


If you've got customer stories and want to leverage them better, then grab this list.


If you haven't started collecting customer stories yet, then use this list to create a plan -- then go get 'em!

Karen Dietz's insight:        

OK -- this article is super quick. But I curated it because I really like the 3 questions it poses to make sure your corporate storytelling is on the right track.

 

The article is written for those in large enterprises. But these questions could work just as well for small businesses and entrepreneurs, also.

 

Pay attention to these 3 questions and you will be on the road to success. All 3 are right on.

Have trouble telling your founding story? Then this article will definitely help.


Written for nonprofits, it is just as relevant and helpful for for-profit businesses.


I really like how the author, Nancy Schwartz, lays out the steps.


If you need to create your founding story, or beef up your existing one, there are good tips here to get you on the right track.

streetsmartprof's comment, January 17, 2013 8:10 AM
Some day I would love to hear some stories of your past life as a journalist and how you moved from structure to the flow of story. What I like the most of a good news article, (written by a decent journallist), is the lead. In the B2B world, "having a point" is missed far too often and replaced with fluff words, such as state of the art. In this way, even though both news and B2B content march to a different drummer, as Simon Sinek points out, start with why, the rest will follow. Yet I also firmly belief a good story needs to follow the right flow to connect with and move the listener. On re-invent, no fear, we violently agree, it is a metaphor us engineers use all the time. To re-invent implies we are using things of the past, such as a wheel...
streetsmartprof's comment, January 17, 2013 8:12 AM
Small clarification, on start with why, I do not mean the story starts this way. As Simon points out, the why is in all things one does and helps us build what it is we are trying to achieve.
Karen Dietz's comment, January 17, 2013 4:39 PM
Hi John/Ken -- I love these comments! I was able to move from structure to story flow by taking oral storytelling classes with some of the top folks in the story performance arena. I could myself very lucky to have had those experiences and encourage everyone I can to take some oral storytelling classes. And creating writing classes along the way sure helped too! As you say, lead-ins are so important and so many folks I coach/train struggle with how to open a story. I think my training as a journalist definitely helped there. I totally agree with your points about fluff and starting out with why, and flow. LOL on the re-invent! Great minds think alike :)
