Why Leadership and CSR Are Tightly Aligned

Why Leadership and CSR Are Tightly Aligned | Leadership | Scoop.it

Leadership and corporate social responsibility (CSR) are two separate issues that are increasingly talked about, though rarely in the same sentence. But you can't have one without the other. And both are regrettably in short supply.

Leadership, especially the CEO kind, is about five things:

• Setting and communicating a vision that takes into account and balances the short-term, the bigger picture, and the long view
• Making tough decisions in the short-term to protect and nourish the long-term
• Motivating and inspiring the troops to do the above
• Treating all stakeholders well (including employees)
• Creating an ethical culture to do the right thing

Why the New Search App “Jelly” Gets at the Heart of Private Online Communities | CustomerThink

Why the New Search App “Jelly” Gets at the Heart of Private Online Communities | CustomerThink | Leadership | Scoop.it

Have you heard of the new search app, Jelly? If not, get ready! It might be the next “big thing.”

 

Designed to function as a search engine that relies on your social networking contacts to answer questions you post, Jelly works on the basic principle that people want to help other people.

 

Perhaps the biggest indication that Jelly might be on the cusp of revolutionizing search is the creators behind it: Biz Stone, the co-founder of Twitter, alongside Ben Finkel, the CEO of Fluther.com. Stone says that they developed Jelly to create a search engine for the world they currently live in.

The new Jelly #app (@AskJelly) is a tool for #crowdsourcing questions and answers from your online community that you can use anywhere. It has the potential to disrupt the current search and wiki Q&A marketplace. However, it does have some drawbacks as the article outlines. Worth checking it out.

Step ahead of the game  by knowing these 3 game changers!  1st time leaders by @GillianDavies07. 

John Michel's curator insight, February 2, 2014 10:44 AM

Most leadership experts agree that the most important role of a leader is to effectively communicate the organization’s mission and vision. Every member of your team should understand how his or her role plays a part in the bigger picture of the business. There is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to being an effective leader.
