Adapting to Change, Leader Lessons From Jeff Weiner, CEO of LinkedIn - Forbes | Life etc. | Scoop.it

Jeff’s leadership style keeps the company focused on growing at the rate of two new members every second  while reducing the business mantra to just two words: “Next Play.”

 

Leadership lessons lists abound on-line.  Jeff's list of 10 lessons, however, is tied to a large, successful virtual platform company with real staying power, connected to jobs and career growth - LinkedIn.  

 

He's obviously trending in the right direction as his inspires his "Next Plays" among his staff.  ~  Deb

 

Excerpts:

 

_____________________________

Today, 16 months after the LinkedIn IPO, employees continue to talk about their Next Play and stay focused on delivering results.

_____________________________

 

Weiner described how powerful the phrase, "Next Play" has been for the company.

 

On the day LinkedIn became a public company, employees received a black T shirt with the company’s name and stock ticker written across the front and Next Play emblazoned on the back of the shirt. Even today 16 months after the LinkedIn IPO, employees continue to talk about their Next Play and stay focused on delivering results.
1) Define leadership : At LinkedIn, Leadership is the ability to inspire others and achieve shared results. ...to create economic opportunity for the 3.3 billion people in the global workplace by matching skills with job opportunities.
3) Prioritize your business goals: ...if we could only do one thing, what would it be? This is a lesson Weiner learned from Steve Jobs and practices every day. 

6) Customers first: ... anytime the LinkedIn product team considers new enhancements the first question revolves around: Is this putting our members first, or is this putting the company first? “If it benefits members, it will ultimately benefit the company.

 

7) Remember To laugh: ...Weiner says he values his team members’ sense of humor and sometimes, on a tough day, that can trump their talent and expertise!

Measuring the impact of content | theOutsourcing-guide.com | Life etc. | Scoop.it
By Mark Atterby In recent years there has been a dramatic growth in content marketing. Spurned on by their Social Media initiatives, marketers are now producing more content than ever before. However, few to no standards exist that adequately capture the impact of content on the business, whether from a reputation, revenue, operational or brand perspective. In this age of digital data driven marketing and analytics it’s important to measure results. But that’s the problem with content marketing. Compared to a direct mailshot or telemarketing campaign or some other form of hard selling technique – measuring the effectiveness of content marketing, in real dollar terms, is difficult. Recent research from Altimeter, highlights how content strategists and digital marketers struggle to select the right metrics and frequently opt for measuring volume rather than impact when impact metrics are too complex to measure, or the required data or tools are not available. Tying metrics to real

"Critical Thinking" may sound like an obnoxious buzzword from liberal arts schools, but it's actually a useful skill. Critical thinking just means absorbing important information and using that to form a decision or opinion of your own—rather than just spouting off what you hear others say.
