The Evolution of Social Business


Forward-thinking and agile organisations have learned that in a connected world, business-as-usual is no more. They understand they need to listen to, engage and connect with the marketplace. That is why we now see HR departments connecting with potential talent on Facebook, Customer Service departments helping clients on Twitter or Business Development departments putting out thought-leadership pieces on the company blog.

7 Lessons Everyone Can Learn About Leadership From Game Of Thrones

7 Lessons Everyone Can Learn About Leadership From Game Of Thrones | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Game of Thrones is set in a medieval world of knights, dragons, and magic, characterized by long, cold seasons, and populated with White Walkers. This most amazing and compelling TV series has captured the hearts and minds of people around the world. In the history of mankind, never has a TV series been so downloaded and watched, so are there leadership lessons we can take from this series?


Before I answer this question, I will tell you a story; I run a training company, after all. A man in a hot-air balloon realized he was lost. He reduced the altitude and spotted a woman below. He descended a bit more and shouted, “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.”


Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

Sex, murder, dragons, warring leaders, and a wall impossible to scale. Does this sound like any corporations you know today? Perhaps, but I am talking about Targaryens, Lannisters, Starks, and Baratheons in Game of Thrones.

Why Saying This Four-Letter Word Can Transform Your Productivity

Why Saying This Four-Letter Word Can Transform Your Productivity | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Perfectionists are often reminded that "done is better than perfect." But it turns out there’s another reason we should all try to create more "done" moments in our workdays.

Saying the word done can help you get more accomplished on your to-do list. "Telling ourselves that we’re done creates not only an emotional reaction but a physiological response as well," says Leslie Sherlin, a psychologist, neuroperformance specialist, and the cofounder of the brain-training company SenseLabs.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

A neurochemical shift happens in your brain when you say "done" at the end of even the smallest tasks.

When we are mentoring someone who has a pattern of being overwhelmed, helping them to see that a task or project is done and declaring that it is done is a very powerful tool.

3 Easy Ways to Improve Your Efficiency

3 Easy Ways to Improve Your Efficiency | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

When it comes to many of the people who we think are hardworking, we're really just misinformed. For instance, it is a common thought that people who work late are hardworking. Why? Because the assumption is that they have so much work to do that they must burn the midnight oil to get it done. Another example is when we see people who always seem like they are busy all the time. Again, they have taken on so much work that they must work all the time.

In truth, most of these "hard workers" are just inefficient. Look closely and you'll see they use these methods to produce the same results as everybody else. And while it can be argued that these people are disciplined because of their work ethic, more of a focus should be put on productivity. And to produce more results, you don't have to work longer, just smarter.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

Most people who we think are working hard are mismanaging their time.

How to Be More Resilient When Things Get Tough

How to Be More Resilient When Things Get Tough | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

It's human nature to resist change--particularly when it comes in the form of adversity or challenges. But change is inevitable, and developing the trait of resilience helps us not only survive change, but also learn, grow, and thrive in it.

Resilience is the capacity to cope with stress and adversity. It comes from believing in yourself and, at the same time, in something bigger than yourself.

Resilience is not a trait that people are born with; it involves behaviors, thoughts, and actions that can be learned and developed in anyone.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

The choices we make every day determine how resilient we can be when things go wrong. Discover the secret to thriving in challenging times.

This May Not Surprise You: Only 10% Of Managers Have What It Takes To Be Managers

This May Not Surprise You: Only 10% Of Managers Have What It Takes To Be Managers | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

If you interact with managers at work, this may not surprise you: A lot of people aren't good at being managers. They lack the skills, the poise and, above all, the ability and willingness to engage. And we all know how this affects you, the worker. A bad manager can be disconnected and uninterested, leaving you alone but failing to help you grow. But the situation can be much, much worse.


Just how common are these bad bosses? A new report from Gallup, based on extensive polling, finds only 10% of managers have what it takes to be "a great manager."


"Great managers possess a rare combination of five talents. They motivate their employees, assert themselves to overcome obstacles, create a culture of accountability, build trusting relationships and make informed, unbiased decisions for the good of their team and company," says the report. "The majority of managers are miscast."

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

It's actually really, really hard to be a great boss. And the qualities that make people great bosses are not how we decide who gets promoted.
