Never heard of it - must be worth sharing :)

Robin Good's insight:Introducing content curation to someone who doesn't know anything about it is not always an easy task. There are so many different articles, opinions, definitions and recommendations about content curation that it is quite difficult for someone just getting familiar with the topic, to easily find out where to start and what to trust. To help out anyone needing to support the explanation of content curation to others, here are five comprehensive resource collections I have put together over the course of the last year. 1) Content Curation - Definitions a collection of the best and most useful definitions of what content curation is http://bundlr.com/b/content-curation-definition 2) Content Curation - What is it? Video Intros 30+ short video clips that introduce the need, practice and purpose of content curation http://huzzaz.com/collection/content-curation-what-is-it 3) Content Curation Visualized 110+ infographics, visuals, illustrations and diagrams explaining what content curation is www.pinterest.com/robingood/content-curation-visualized/ 4) Content Curation Tools Directory - Tools Directory 100+ of the best content curation tools organized in a directory for immediate access http://contentcuration.zeef.com/ 5) Content Curation Tools Supermap - Tools Collection 600+ content curation, discovery, filtering and publishing tools organized by categories for doing content curation http://bit.ly/ContentCurationToolsSupermap All free to use and share.

Protect Your Startup: 5 Steps To Create Effective Business Processes

Protect Your Startup: 5 Steps To Create Effective Business Processes | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

Many startups overlook the importance of establishing business processes. In a founding team’s scramble to develop a product or service and go to market, developing structure often (understandably) takes a backseat to other priorities. However, growth and long-term success demand processes, and it is never too early to focus on building them.

For venture investors, a startup's social-media efforts are a big deal

For venture investors, a startup's social-media efforts are a big deal | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

Better put your best foot forward on Twitter and Facebook. An investor might be watching.

A growing group of venture capitalists are taking social media into consideration before they decide to pour millions of dollars into a startup. They're checking how many online followers a company has, and how fast the numbers are growing. They're looking at the unfiltered consumer feedback companies get and how they respond. And they're assessing how creative startups are about managing marketing campaigns and leveraging their presence.

An impressive social-media effort, investors say, can show that a brand has a unique and appealing voice—and that it knows how to grab customers. And it can be the tipping point in the decision to back a startup.

Quantum computing and quantum communications; these concepts were invented just 30 years ago, after scientific journals refused to issue earlier publications regarding these subjects because it looked more like science-fiction. Nowadays, quantum systems really do exist, with some of them reaching the stage of commercial sales. Quantum computers raise and answer new questions in the security field, primarily in cryptography.

Leadership With Simon Sinek: Serving Those Who Serve Others

Jonathan Fields of Good Life Project spent close to an hour in deep conversation with Sinek discussing the impact of leadership, and how we should all be pushing ourselves by asking more questions and demanding that these questions be answered in a much simpler way.

An insight-packed chat with Simon Sinek!  Worth your time!

Richard Dillard, PMP, SSBB, ABD 7.1's curator insight, October 12, 2013 1:23 PM

"The worst leaders are the ones that think they have to know as much or more than the poeple who work with them." - Simon Sinek

 

Simon may be on to something basic here, in spite of his misplaced reference to evolution, his misunderstanding of the human mind when it comes to self-preservation (the first law of nature), his miscomparison of human beings to animals and the obvious implications of overlooking the moral law giver when it comes to right and wrong (the first law of human nature).  In other words, while there is nothing in evolution that explains the imperative to tell the truth as apposed to telling a lie or accounts for developing an "attitude of giving" or a wllingness to sacrifice for others, we can and should take seriously this idea of accepting that we, as leaders, don't (and can't, by definition, if you accept that teams outperform individuals even when that individual is the team lead) know more than those who work with us and every time we act as if we do, it signals the beginning of a demise and our failure as leaders. 

 

We should also altogether support Simon's rejection of the leadership of Jack Welch (GE) and his veneration of the leadership of Jim Sinegal (COSTCO). 

 

In fact, many of the ideas presented by Simon in this interview are consistent with the things I wrote about in my latest book, but we'd likely differ on the cause (whether the first or most proximate) of a Leadership - Culture - Performance connection in producing the effects being endorsed.  The obvious question now is, does it really matter where we ascribe the cause of right and effective leadership?  I believe it does matter and provide the rationale on pages 96 and 97 of Real Leadership! Are You Ready?
