Cultural Intelligence: The Key to Global Leadership

 

We live and work in a world that is an integrated entity, increasingly influenced by external cultural factors. For those in leadership positions it is now not only necessary to have a high IQ and EQ (emotional intelligence), but strong Cultural Intelligence (CQ) is also increasingly regarded as a necessary skill to succeed in today's global business community.

How can a social media guru help educate students, faculty & families. Social Communities

How can a social media guru help educate students, faculty & families. Social Communities | language and technology | Scoop.it
In today’s day and age, we often look towards the younger generations for advice on how to use technology. Having trouble with your new smart phone? Ask any teenager on the block, they can give you a demo.

 

Here are four things that schools can do to educate students, families and faculty on proper social media usage, and serve as a go-to resource for their communities:

 

1.    Set a Social Media Policy for the School

2.    Designate a Social Media “Guru”

3.    Hold Social Media Workshops for the Students and Parents

 

4.    Offer “Social Media Tutoring”

This is a great article and every school should follow that example!

 

The basic idea here is to keep your community educated and informed. The more you know and can share with your constituents, the better it is for the entire community.

It's important to note that once you post something on Facebook, or any other social network, it's no longer private, period.

 

While Facebook makes it fairly easy to control with whom you share information, the best way to keep your information private is to not post it anywhere in the first place.

And if the poster uses the command, "Retweet" rather than "RT", the retweet rate increases twelve-fold...! Remember, less than 100 chars means +17% engagement, too. More than 2 +hashtags reduces this again by 17%!
