How A Social Media User Becomes A Social Media Leader - What You Need To Do

How A Social Media User Becomes A Social Media Leader - What You Need To Do | Lead Without a Title!!! | Scoop.it

This article was written by Dave Larsen for Kissmetrics, he has some very good advice and takeaways.

 

Excerpt:

 

As you build your reputation as a leader, your reputation will begin to take on a life of its own.

 

"I abandoned my twitter account months ago. My abandoned account got tens of thousands of followers anyway. It was an incredible lesson to me. Many people even kept tweeting personal recommendations of the old account name until they figured out the change.

 

Because it was on tons of list, recommended in many, many blog posts, etc., people attracted to the reputation just kept arriving.

 

****And all I did was start by helping. Done right, helping is the highest quality and most efficient interaction possible, as it also creates connections, and builds reputation.

 

****Everyone can help someone.

 

****If you can help one person, you can help two, and if you can help two, you have already started building a community, and creating your reputation as a leader in that community.

 

Don’t lose sight of always creating quality interactions and making quality connections.

 

****Use the quality scale and be ruthless with your time, and you too can quickly be acknowledged as an awesome leader yourself!"

Seven Things Great Employers Do (that Others Don’t)

Seven Things Great Employers Do (that Others Don’t) | Lead Without a Title!!! | Scoop.it

For most people, paid work is unsettling and energy-sapping. Despite employee engagement racing up the priority list of CEOs (see, for example, The Conference Board’s CEO Challenge 2014), HBR's research into workplaces all over the world reveals a sorry state of affairs: workers who are actively disengaged outnumber their engaged colleagues by an overwhelming factor of 2:1. The good news is that there are companies out there bucking the trend, and they have discovered how.

 

Over a five-year timeframe, HBR studied 32 exemplary companies (collectively employing 600,000 people) across seven industries including hospitality, banking, manufacturing, and hospitals. At these companies, the engaged workers outnumber the actively disengaged ones by a 9:1 ratio. To understand what drives that tremendous advantage, they looked for contrasts between them and a much larger set of companies they know to be struggling to turn around bland and uninspiring workplaces.

10 Steps To Effective Listening

10 Steps To Effective Listening | Lead Without a Title!!! | Scoop.it

In today’s high-tech, high-speed, high-stress world, communication is more important then ever, yet we seem to devote less and less time to really listening to one another. Genuine listening has become a rare gift—the gift of time. It helps build relationships, solve problems, ensure understanding, resolve conflicts, and improve accuracy. At work, effective listening means fewer errors and less wasted time. At home, it helps develop resourceful, self-reliant kids who can solve their own problems. Listening builds friendships and careers. It saves money and marriages.

  2. Be attentive, but relaxed.
  3. Keep an open mind.
  4. Listen to the words and try to picture what the speaker is saying.
  5. Don’t interrupt and don’t impose your “solutions.
  6. Wait for the speaker to pause to ask clarifying questions.
  7. Ask questions only to ensure understanding.
  8. Try to feel what the speaker is feeling.
  9. Give the speaker regular feedback.
  10. Pay attention to what isn’t said—to nonverbal cues.

....and so many businesses don't see it this way. 

Debra Walker's curator insight, March 6, 2014 4:23 PM

I recently read an article that was describing corporate culture as lunch provided everyday & free beer on Friday.  If you take away those superficial connections for an employee - which are merely non cash components of a compensation plan and not a long term contributor to organizational culture - an engaged employee will remain committed to excelling in their role and for the organization.


An unengaged employee will be more impacted by that removal, resulting in connecting with that employee becoming even harder to achieve.


Engagement is multi-layered and more complex than being provided a sandwich so that I can continue to work through what should be a period of refreshment called lunchtime.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Digital Enterprises

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Digital Enterprises | Lead Without a Title!!! | Scoop.it

The age of experimentation with digital is over. In an often bleak landscape of slow economic recovery, digital continues to show healthy growth. E-commerce is growing at double-digit rates in the United States and most European countries, and it is booming across Asia. To take advantage of this momentum, companies need to move beyond experiments with digital and transform themselves into digital businesses. Yet many companies are stumbling as they try to turn their digital agendas into new business and operating models. The reason, we believe, is that digital transformation is uniquely challenging, touching every function and business unit while also demanding the rapid development of new skills and investments that are very different from business as usual. To succeed, management teams need to move beyond vague statements of intent and focus on “hard wiring” digital into their organization’s structures, processes, systems, and incentives.

Sarah Frame's curator insight, March 31, 2014 5:00 AM

Love this! Especially like the bit about what is said in a funeral eulogy. I am mindful though that it isn't always easy to make adjustments 'for a better life' when we are striving to keep jobs, meet targets, stay afloat financially, make relationships work etc. When I was juggling bringing up a young family and building a career, the last thing I really needed was someone saying I needed to make time for me too! But at least be kind to yourself, stop expecting more of yourself than you do of others, accept you will make mistakes and celebrate being able to pick yourself up, admit it and move on,sometimes the best we can do is muddle through. I often didn't recognise that good enough was in fact good enough.

Your business team is like family and should be treated with dignity and respect. Your team, if focused on obtaining a common goal and proud (not to mention excited) to come to work each day, is what makes an organization successful. This is accomplished through defined goals, clear strategy, clear communication, and working well with others. As my dad used to say (a very successful businessman who worked his way to President of his company), there are 3 rules to live by in the business world: 1. Love what you do; 2. Love the people you work with; 3. Love yourself.

Why Good Managers Are So Rare

Why Good Managers Are So Rare | Lead Without a Title!!! | Scoop.it

Gallup has found that one of the most important decisions companies make is simply whom they name manager. Yet our analysis suggests that they usually get it wrong. In fact, Gallup finds that companies fail to choose the candidate with the right talent for the job 82% of the time.

 

Bad managers cost businesses billions of dollars each year, and having too many of them can bring down a company. The only defense against this massive problem is a good offense, because when companies get these decisions wrong, nothing fixes it. Businesses that get it right, however, and hire managers based on talent will thrive and gain a significant competitive advantage.

Wonderful article from HBR, definitively worthing the few minutes needed for free registration ;)


Here is a short extract:


"If great managers seem scarce, it’s because the talent required to be one is rare. Gallup finds that great managers have the following talents:

  • They motivate every single employee to take action and engage them with a compelling mission and vision.
  • They have the assertiveness to drive outcomes and the ability to overcome adversity and resistance.
  • They create a culture of clear accountability.
  • They build relationships that create trust, open dialogue, and full transparency.
  • They make decisions that are based on productivity, not politics."

12 Sentences To Improve Your Communication | Lead Without a Title!!! | Scoop.it

This is the age of instant communication, and a good example of it is how within the reach of a click, we can “skype-dive” into the room of someone else, living thousands of kilometers away. Businesses flourish everyday, coming out of networks of collaborators, scattered in many countries and geographies, permanently engaged in constant processes of communication, via Skype, Whatsapp, Twitter, Facebook, mail.

 

Due to constant technological innovation, it is now extremely easy to speak to others,  regardless of where you are. Who doesn’t recognize this  scene: you are seating at your desk, having in front of you your laptop. To your right side is your iPhone, on the other side, your tablet.
