This excellent article, suggests that authentic written communication will cement your brand in the customers mind and establish a loyal base of customers for your business, and it offers five tips to follow to ensure that your written business communications come across as authentic and lead to greater connection with your chosen audience.

Pasquale Abiuso's curator insight, December 4, 2013 12:31 PM

5 MIGLIORI CONSIGLI PER COMUNICARE IN MANIERA AUTENTICA E CREARE UNA COMMUNITY.

 

1) Scrivi come se stessi parlando nel tuo stile di sempre. Non cercare di essere diverso quando scrivi.

 

2) Tutti possono scrivere. Lascia andare la tua paura. Raccogli i pensieri e inizia a buttar giù nero su bianco. Conosci sicuramente l'argomento.

 

3) Sii molto chiaro e diretto. Scvrivi in modo semplice e lineare in modo da farti seguire dal tuo pubblico. Non sembrare sofisticato.

 

4) Sii onesto. Se vuoi persone appassionate al tuo prodotto/servizio devi dire la verità, devi ammettere qualche debolezza. Se c'è stato un problema ammettilo e dai prova di come l'hai risolto.

 

5) Crea una comunità. Se hai seguito i 4 punti precedenti, riuscirai a creare una comunità intorno alla tua azienda/prodotto/servizio. I tuoi clienti diventeranno tuoi fans.

Researchers Have Found The Personality Type That's Most Linked To Success And Happiness

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's curator insight, August 25, 2013 7:26 PM

Are you a "glass half-full" or a "glass half-empty" kind of person?


As it turns out, some people can be both. So-called realistic optimists combine the positive outlook of optimists with the clear-eyed perspective of pessimists, new research has found.


These realistic optimists may get the best of both worlds, using their realism to perform better at work and elsewhere, but aren't getting bogged down by unhappiness, said Sophia Chou, an organizational psychology researcher at National Taiwan University, who presented her findings at a meeting of the American Psychological Association in Honolulu, Hawaii earlier this month.


Optimists and Pessimists


Past research has shown that optimists value thoughts that make them feel good about themselves, whereas pessimists prize a more truthful vision of themselves. But a clear-eyed view can be bad for pessimists' well-being, as they tend to be more prone to depression, Chou said. Optimists tend to live longer and be healthier overall.


After several years working in business, Chou noticed there were some people who were both optimistic and realistic, and that they tended to be very successful. She wondered whether realism and optimism were really diametrically opposed.


So Chou administered a battery of personality surveys to about 200 college and graduate students in Taiwan. The surveys tested how many "positive illusions" the students held, as well as whether they were more motivated by self-enhancement or reality.


Realistic Views


The optimists sorted into two camps: the realists and the idealists.

"Realistic optimists tend to choose accuracy over self-enhancement; the unrealistic optimists tend to choose self-enhancement," Chou said.


Interestingly, the realistic optimists also got better grades, on average, than their less grounded peers — probably because they didn't delude themselves into thinking they would do well without studying or working hard, Chou said.

Traditionally, a more realistic outlook is paired with poorer well-being and greater depression, yet the realistic optimists managed to be happy.


To understand why, she dug deeper into the personality assessments.


John E Jenkins's curator insight, September 6, 2013 10:25 AM

It's good to know that a realistic recognition that challenges exist, does not mean you are a pessimist.

Digest...

 

The reality is that these attributes should have an impact on messaging, particularly conversational messaging.   Context is always important for communications, and personality types provide signficant context, when you can get that information.

 

To put it simply, tailoring communications based on personalities is critical for more effective communications.  Where possible, capture personality details in your segmentation efforts.   Coach marketers and sellers on personalizing messaging or discussions based on these attributes.   It may not always be possible, but as buyers get deeper into their buying cycles, it could set you apart from the crowd.

Five Ways to Create a Culture of Innovation in the Workplace

Greg Lustig's curator insight, October 17, 2013 11:22 AM

In order to create a culture of innovation in the workplace,an organization must empower their employees to engage in independent thought processes.In  order to do so, employees must first be fully engaged and vested in the success of their company.Open discussion between all levels of the organization must  be encouraged.Companies need to be transparent in order to make their employees feel that they are an integral part of the business process.Lastly,employees must believe that their opinions matter.

Ciara Turner's curator insight, October 24, 2013 1:23 PM

 

Albert Einstein had it right when he said: “We cannot solve our problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”  With that being said it is time for entrepreneurial and small business owner of companies to step up their innovation creativity.

 

We have big dreamers and ideas that are always seem too left behind. In this article companies and small business revaluated how they allow their employee to make contributes to building a better brand. The question that was explored by most CEO's is, How to make this work environment a more engaging involvement for idea.

 

Well, some companies do this by creating a designated space where employees can be creative. Most office spaces, which are normally a sea of cubicles, have little room physically and emotionally where creativity and innovation can flourish.

 

From a PR stand Point that is brilliant idea because for those companies that still have their employee work in cubicles is only limiting them to that confined space. Also making that change in the office space can build a better bond between employee and employer. Provide an opportunity for employee to shine.

 

In relations to the book this can relate to Chapter 3 employee relations.  Employee Relations involves the body of work concerned with maintaining employer-employee relationships that contribute to satisfactory productivity, motivation, and morale. Essentially, Employee Relations is concerned with preventing and resolving problems involving individuals who arise out of or affect work situations.

 

So for those companies and business that have your employees still concealed to their cubicle and office space re-think and evaluate the amount of new and creative ideas that your employees produce for the better of the company.on page 33 in the Adventure book Kathryn Yates of Watson Wyatt,  stated "that a business function that drives performance and contributes to a company's financial success,".

Is Trust the Answer to Employee Motivation?

Daniel Watson's curator insight, November 28, 2013 9:57 PM

 

Most small businesses that employ staff, find that the level of motivation in individuals can vary remarkably, and even for individuals their motivation levels can rise or fall dramatically over time.

 

Sometimes it is hard for business owners to understand what motivates or demotivates their employees, and given the complex science behind motivational theory, it is not surprising that articles on the subject can be very weighty and at times incomprehensible.

 

This excellent article, suggests that trust is the key factor in determining staff motivation, and it provides a simple infographic that very neatly sums up the whole subject to allow a better understanding of the basics of employee motivation.

Six Scaffolding Strategies to Use with Your Students | Edutopia.org

Six Scaffolding Strategies to Use with Your Students | Edutopia.org | MGT 307 | Scoop.it

What's the opposite of scaffolding a lesson? It would be saying to students something like, "Read this nine-page science article, write a detailed essay on the topic it explores, and turn it in by Wednesday." Yikes -- no safety net, no parachute, no scaffolding -- just left blowing in the wind.

 

Let's start by agreeing that scaffolding a lesson and differentiating instruction are two different things. Scaffolding is breaking up the learning into chunks and then providing a tool, or structure, with each chunk. When scaffolding reading, for example, you might preview the text and discuss key vocabulary, or chunk the text and read and discuss as you go. With differentiation, you may give a child an entirely different piece of text to read, you might shorten the text or alter it, and you may modify the writing assignment that follows.

 

Simply put, scaffolding is what you do first with kids, then for those students who are still struggling, you may need to differentiate by modifying an assignment and/or making accommodations for a student (for example, choose more accessible text and/or assign an alternative project).

 

Scaffolding and differentiation do have something in common though. In order to meet students where they are and appropriately scaffold a lesson, or differentiate instruction, you have to know the individual and collective zone of proximal development (ZPD) of your learners. (As education researcher Eileen Raymond states, "[T]he ZPD is the distance between what children can do by themselves and the next learning that they can be helped to achieve with competent assistance.")

 

So let's get to some scaffolding strategies you may or may not have tried yet, or perhaps you've not used them in sometime and just need a gentle reminder on how awesome and helpful they can be when it comes to student learning:

Ways To Raise Your Emotional Intelligence (EQ)

Ways To Raise Your Emotional Intelligence (EQ) | MGT 307 | Scoop.it

We all probably know people, at work or in our personal lives, who are great at listening and helping us feel more hopeful and optimistic. Like me, you probably know people who are masters at managing their emotions. You find yourself in awe, and wish you had the ability to control your emotions too. Your emotional awareness and ability to handle feelings can determine your success and overall happiness in all aspects of your life. Raising your emotional intelligence has a direct and positive effect on your level of energy and consciousness.

 

Definition of Emotional Intelligence

 

Emotional intelligence is the ability to recognize your emotions, understand what they’re telling you, and realize how they affect the people around you. People who function at a high rate of emotional intelligence have the ability to adjust their behaviors and are more effective at recognizing and managing their own emotions as well as the emotions of others.  Ergo, emotional intelligence equals interpersonal effectiveness; the more effective you are with others, the more successful you’ll be.

 

The Six Pillars of Emotional Intelligence

 

If your desire is to raise your emotional intelligence, here are six pillars of emotional intelligence to incorporate into your life:

 

1. Self-Awareness

Serving as the core area of emotional intelligence, being able to identify how you feel throughout the day, as well as who you are, helps you make important life choices. One way to raise your emotional intelligence is to use present language to help focus more on the present moment. Put your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs on paper. By doing this, you’re able to put things into perspective, which helps you become more aware of who you are, what you want and why. Learn to increase your emotional vocabulary by using it to describe your full range of emotions.

Knowing how to express your emotions can often help you manage them in a proper and healthy way. Don’t be afraid to give yourself the gift of silence and meditation. Reconnect with your inner self and watch your perspective and your life transform.

 

2. Empathy

Empathy is extremely powerful and essential to raising your emotional intelligence. Increasing your ability to empathize can help you get closer to others, gain their support when you need it, and potentially defuse high-charged conflicts in your professional and personal life. Empathy is recognized as the second-most important emotion to acquire, since by showing someone that you understand where they’re coming from, you’re able to gain their respect. Be aware and listen carefully to what they are telling you. You know you are becoming more empathetic when you’re able to decipher and recognize the feelings of others.

 

3. Self-Regulation

All humans share the desire to have intimate relationships with a few trusted people. However, part of growing as a person involves acquiring new skills while experiencing new relationships. By learning to control and manage your emotions, especially your impulses, you are able to prepare yourself for emotional self-management.

People who self-regulate think before they act, have the ability to say no, and shift their thoughts to prevent their emotions from controlling them. They are self-aware enough to know their strengths, weaknesses, and are willing to look at themselves honestly. Emotionally intelligent people aim for assertiveness, appropriately sharing their emotions, thoughts, and beliefs with the right people at the right time as a means to let others know where they stand.

 

4. Motivation

Willing to defer immediate results to establish long-term success, emotionally intelligent people are generally characterized as motivated. People are often guided by their emotional knowledge, which results in a flawed impulsive decision. People who are emotionally intelligent, however, are excellent decision-makers, and they know when to trust their intuition.

 

Susceptible to criticism, they take it well, and know when to use it to improve their performance. Emotionally intelligent people know when to stick and when to switch their emotional attachments. They are motivated to look at a problem and find a resolution in a calm and rational way. When it comes to their careers, motivation drives emotionally intelligent people to be more productive and passionate about succeeding.

 

5. Social Skills

Another way of raising your emotional intelligence is being able to easily talk and connect with others. Being socially responsible demonstrates that you really care about others and not just about your own personal gain. Individuals who focus on the development of others rather than their own, practice emotional intelligence as well as humility. Humility can be a wonderful quality to possess because it indicates to others that you’re able to take responsibility of your actions while still participating and being a team player. Having a high emotional intelligence gives you the social skills to manage the emotions of others too.

 

6. Happiness

Raising your emotional intelligence involves knowing when to be happy, sad, excited, anxious, or even vigilant. Unfortunately, very few people know how to manage their happiness as it is frequently associated with material goods or gifts they receive from others.

 

Generally, people who possess high emotional intelligence are happy people. The really happy ones are those who always give. Happiness, for clarification, feels like a warm, steady glow harbored inside your body. Because happy people accomplish more tasks than those who are sad or depressed, it is important to note that the emotionally intelligent have the ability to control their mood to serve their purpose, motivating them to find more solutions to problems. Remember, it costs nothing to spread happiness, and what you receive in return is priceless.

 

In order to raise your emotional intelligence, it is essential that you try to incorporate these six pillars into your life. Not only will you no longer feel like a slave to your emotions, you’ll be able to create and maintain more meaningful and intimate relationships in your professional career and personal life.

Could ethics exist without religion?

Could ethics exist without religion? | MGT 307 | Scoop.it

Does our moral behavior derive from religion? Is it possible for us to be moral without being part of any religious group? One thing that is certain is that Western culture is based on Judeo-Christian philosophies. Almost every aspect of Western Culture is based Judeo-Christian beliefs from our legal system to our mores. However, our moral behavior did not all derive from religion. Social mores all derive from what is best for the collective. If everyone kills one another or steals from one another then it would be a detriment to the society. Therefore, governments exist not only to protect people but to punish people who violate basic social mores.

For NFL, what is the price of integrity? | MGT 307 | Scoop.it

Via ESPN:

 

What is the price of losing your integrity?

 

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and the league's owners are being challenged to answer that question on Tuesday after replacement referees affirmed the controversial, last-second touchdown that gave the Seattle Seahawks the win over the Green Bay Packers in Monday night's game.

 

While the call might have shifted up to a $1 billion for gamblers worldwide, there has been little actual cost to the league using replacement referees. Television ratings remain robust and attendance hasn't been impacted while the league continues to negotiate with the referees' union.

 

But just because it isn't easy to pin down an actual cost doesn't mean the league hasn't hurt itself.

 

"The reason why the NFL and other major sports are so popular is because major league sports are seen as a legitimate competition in which strategy and talent will win out and will not be undermined in any way," said Adam Galinsky, the Kaplan Professor of Ethics and Decisions in Management at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. "Legitimacy is what makes people consider the NFL a sport and wrestling an entertainment vehicle..."

Ethics in the Public Relations field are extremely important and the only way to maintain a good relationship in this field is to ensure that each party has the same values and understandings. When it comes to the social media it is important that these ethics are followed because things travel so fast through the web that one it is sent out, its impossible to take back. Anyone in the industry of Public Relations, marketing, politics and so on has to keep in mind that anything and everything that is posted from their accounts are being viewed and most importantly they are being judged by everyone they are working with.

Ashleigh Dawley's curator insight, September 30, 2013 4:22 PM

Really loves how this article addresses the idea of ethics in our media driven society. Not only has this become an issue  in more recept years because literally EVERYTHING can end up online, but also how we can address. Because conversations have become more and more public, the idea  of how that has changed how we view ethics needs to be revisited.

Bryce Wettstein's curator insight, October 28, 2013 2:16 AM

This article involved a interview with Dr. Shannon Bowen, an Associate Professor in the School of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of South Carolina. She talks about how it is becoming increasingly more important in this age of social media to be conscious about how ethical we as a society need to be regarding posts on social media. It mentions that we need to consider three angles: "responsibility to moral principle, maintaining the dignity and respect of all publics, and proceeding with good intentions."

How I Hire: There Is No Lone Genius; Hire a Team With these Four Types | LinkedIn Blog | MGT 307 | Scoop.it

There’s something romantic about the idea of the lone genius. The early success of GE is often attributed solely to the inspiration and perspiration of Thomas Edison. But experience and research both tell us that lasting success is built by teams that drive each other through collaboration, different skill sets and, yes, tension. It’s difficult to imagine the stratospheric successes of Steve Jobs without Stephen Wozniak or Mark Zuckerberg without Sheryl Sandberg. Edison had many collaborators and competitors who drove him, including the engineering genius Charles Steinmetz.

 

Diverse teams drive more innovation. Hiring people with different styles, backgrounds and experience increases the success of teams. My sense of what makes a successful team is constantly evolving, but these days I look for these four types when I hire.
