Kimberly Bower's insight:

From article: "Gail, saw your report. Let's all remember not to call major clients Big Kahunas" – takes only a moment to compose and lets managers stay on top of performance in real time."

 

Would you really tweet this to give an employee real time job performance feedback? I wouldn't.

Play and Learn Islands

Play and Learn Islands | Librarians Out Loud | Scoop.it

One of the winners of the 2012 Bright Ideas Harvard University:

"Babies and young children learn through play. It is their source for information about the world. As part of the the Rancho Cucamonga [CA] Library’s mission to foster life-long learning, we now offer opportunities for young children to play while building skills for learning and literacy in all stages of life.

In the spring of 2010, we welcomed four Play and Learn Islands™ to the libraries, providing a new and unique way to bring play and learning to the youngest members of our community."

How to kill a library, By Kitty Pope

How to kill a library, By Kitty Pope | Librarians Out Loud | Scoop.it

"[...]there are more than a few ways to kill a library.

For example:

√ Stop believing in the libraries mission. Do we really believe in the freedom to read, learn and discover?

√ Spend less time with the board. The ideal public library board would meet 4 times per year and agrees with everything the CEO recommended.

√ Stop talking to your customers. What do they know any way? And on the same topic, stop consulting staff. It is a huge time waster.

√ Don’t worry about the future and how you will get there. Sustainability is not an issue with which libraries need to be concerned. After all, we’ve have survived for hundreds of years.

√ Stop telling the library story. Everyone has heard our story.

√ Accept that the library building is old and you don’t need to keep renovating, painting, and updating it. It is what it is.

√ Accept that just like instant coffee killed the coffee bean, the e-book will kill the printed book.

√ Stop promoting the product; everyone knows about literacy and lifelong learning.

√ Stop empowering staff, and stop training them. They should come to us fully trained.

√ Stop all this talk about innovation. It just makes for more work.

√ And, for heaven’s sake, stop changing the rules and our traditions. It’s annoying!"

On blogs, format is king, not content. Without reading a word of content, 94% of people distrusted a site based on its format according to research of online health sites by Elizabeth Sillence, Pam Briggs, Lesley Fishwick and Peter Harris.

Here are thirty-one elements to get your blog on track while ensuring your 360° brand is integrated into every aspect of your blog structure and content....
