We're All Millennials Now

We're All Millennials Now | Leadership | Scoop.it
I can’t help but chuckle when I hear people complain about Millennials. I'm sure you hear the same things I do: “They’re addicted to technology." “They’re always texting." “They’re constantly on social media." Are you thinking what I’m thinking?
Ximena Adamo's insight:
Yes, we all play an important role and somewhat have "millennialist" in us. Technology has made it easier for brands to communicate and engage, the problem here is that the lack the knowledge to do so effective. Most brands focus on "communicating" an idea, product, or brand and the key is to "engage" into that idea, product or brand. "it’s not just Millennials running their lives on their mobile phones. It’s everybody. And that means every business must embrace it."

Want To Become A Great Leader? Here's The Key

Want To Become A Great Leader? Here's The Key | Leadership | Scoop.it
Today I am sharing some research that should give you pause when you’re tempted to focus on your faults instead of building upon what’s going right.
Ximena Adamo's insight:
Business culture has long focused on weakness prevention. While we are busy trying to fix ourselves and others, we often minimize or completely overlook our most powerful asset- OUR STRENGTHS. Strengths are one's innate talents, things we do well naturally. Everyone has them, and when identified, nurtured and channeled, they can have a dramatic effect on one's job performance, satisfaction and affect bottom-line performance of others.

4 Ways Leaders Can Create a Candid Culture

4 Ways Leaders Can Create a Candid Culture | Leadership | Scoop.it

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 14, 2014 7:44 PM

Don's point is well-made: sacrifice ego. Too often, bosses want to talk and not listen. Sometimes stepping back and listening is important. It allows the other person to share their complete thought rather than only half which might not be enough.
