"Coworking is not about desk, but about the people"...

Along with the rise of coworking also comes the question, what coworking and its culture really is. The platform GoodCoworking is on a quest for answers.

9 Subtle Traits Of The Most Talented Leaders: HR Human Resources

Good bosses look good on paper. Great bosses look great in person; their actions show their value. Yet some bosses go even farther. They're remarkable—not because of what you see them do but what you don't see them do.

The idea of a circular economy, of circular product life cycles, will inevitably catch on. It's a good phrase and good thinking. How can we make it happen faster?

In business, the online and offline worlds follow the same rules. It has always been about the needs of audiences before businesses’.

 

Will 2013 be the year when all businesses wake up to this reality?

 

“In our Outlook 2013 series, a colleague of mine, Jacques Bughin, had an interesting piece about customer experience. He made the excellent point that in a time where people can check prices easily and use all sorts of third party platforms to research products, customer experience is becoming an important way to differentiate yourself and get (and keep) more customers.”

(From the article): Be genuine about who you really are.

 

The days are long gone when customers were impressed by an illustrious corporate name or a fancy job title. Customers are more likely to respect you if you present yourself as an individual rather than a plug-and-play "representative." The moment you pretend to be more (or other) than you really are, your credibility flies out the window. Be authentic, even if all you bring to the table is your enthusiasm.

The End of a Job as We Know It

The End of a Job as We Know It | Mid-Week Mentor | Scoop.it

The concept of a job, as we know it, is starting to go away.

 

Over the last year I've been speaking with many corporate business and HR leaders and have heard a common theme:we need our organizations to be more agile. We need to redesign the organization so we can learn faster, communicate better, and respond more rapidly to change. This quest for the agile organization has changed the nature of what we call a job.

Yes David, a long time ago that things have changed ... finally happily. I think you gave good advice to your children, who will always be on the safe side if they focus on life and relationships.
Martin Gysler's comment, January 16, 2013 4:43 AM
@ Don - I read an article last week on the same subject and I think you say right that deep skills are (or should be) the currency of the job. More and more companies have understood this reality today.
Martin Gysler's comment, January 16, 2013 4:54 AM
@Trumans - Yes, I totally agree with you. Relationships and our network is more important than ever. It is sometimes simply complicated, for me, to set a limit ... :-). Your training seems to be great, if you can put together five acronyms and if those who follow the training understands the strong message sent.

7 Simple Ways to Be a Positive Influence As a Leader

7 Simple Ways to Be a Positive Influence As a Leader | Mid-Week Mentor | Scoop.it

Do you ever wonder what other people think of you?  One of my greatest sayings is “People tell you who they are”  This is so true in day to day interactions.  If you are irritated, impatient, or just downright fed up, you are telling people who you are because as you remain in that state you radiate it out to the world, whether you are aware of it or not.

(From the article): Being glad for others for most of us is quite easy.  It’s great to see people doing well.  Showing you’re glad means actively helping them to celebrate their successes.  When someone gets that qualification or loses that 6lb, find a way to help them celebrate.  Buy a bunch of flowers or send that card, or take the time to drop an email, pop your head round the door and tell them “Well done”.  Too often in our fast paced lives, even though we may be glad for others, we fall short of showing we are.
