Facebook, Instagram Are Influencers' Favorite Social Platforms - eMarketer

Facebook, Instagram Are Influencers' Favorite Social Platforms - eMarketer | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

Influencers use different social media platforms to help promote and get the word out about the brands they are working with. Nearly a third of US influencers who currently work with brands cite Facebook as being the best platform for influencer marketing, followed closely by Instagram, per July 2016 research from SheSpeaks, a female-focused engagement network, which polled 347 US influencers who have an active blog, and are active on social media.

It’s not surprising that Facebook and Instagram were considered to be among the best social media platforms for influencer marketing, especially given that most influencers use photo and video content when marketing on behalf of brands. What is surprising is that only 10% of influencers cited Pinterest, a content sharing service that’s all about images and videos. In fact, more respondents considered Twitter to be the best social media platform, and they can only use up to 140 characters within that platform to promote a brand. What’s more, Pinterest even has more users than Twitter in the US as of this year....

How to Build Trust on Your Cross-Cultural Team

How to Build Trust on Your Cross-Cultural Team | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
One of the most essential characteristics for a high-functioning team — perhaps the single most important characteristic — is trust. Anyone who has worked on a team knows that team members must be able to trust each other to get the job done, and be committed and dedicated to the overall welfare of the group. In any group of individuals, trust is challenging to create and sustain, but in the case of a multicultural team it can be especially difficult for a variety of different reasons.

We may graduate from school, but we never stop learning. New jobs, new roles, new relationships: all require the acquisition of new knowledge. To stop learning is to stop improving.


Despite its importance, so many of us develop bad habits and faulty techniques that undermine our ability learn effectively, says Nate Kornell, an associate professor of cognitive psychology at Williams College who studies learning strategies.

Below, Kornell outlines three fundamental principles to learn by. 

 

1. Embrace discomfort

2. Stop cramming

3. Make connections

Visible Thinking

Visible Thinking | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
Visible Thinking involves several practices and resources. Teachers are invited to use with their students a number of "thinking routines" -- simple protocols for exploring ideas -- around whatever topics are important, say fractions arithmetic, the Industrial Revolution, World War II, the meaning of a poem, the nature of democracy. Visible Thinking includes attention to four "thinking ideals" -- understanding, truth, fairness, and creativity.

There Are Actually 3 Kinds Of Listening--Here's How To Master Them

There Are Actually 3 Kinds Of Listening--Here's How To Master Them | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

"We associate listening with our ears. The Stoic philosopher Epictetus observed, "We have two ears and one mouth so we can listen twice as much as we speak." But there’s lots more to listening than opening our ears and hearing what somebody says. It involves our full being—good listeners have a physical, mental, and emotional presence, and they know how to integrate all three. It's not as difficult a balancing act as you may think, but it does take a little more deliberate thought than most of us bring to the activity. Here's how to brush up."

A First-Time Manager’s Guide to Leading Virtual Teams

A First-Time Manager’s Guide to Leading Virtual Teams | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
In the past, new managers often had the luxury of cutting their teeth on traditional collocated teams: groups of people, sitting down the hall from one another, who met up in conference rooms to hash out what they were trying to achieve and how to get there. Unfortunately, today’s increasingly global work environment does not always afford that luxury. Many first-time managers find themselves assigned to a team of subordinates scattered far and wide.

These 4 Hobbies Can Actually Improve Job Performance

These 4 Hobbies Can Actually Improve Job Performance | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
 While downtime of any kind can help relieve stress, there are several science-backed ways that let you enjoy life outside of the office while improving your productivity within it.
 

Research conducted by Kevin Eschleman, an assistant psychology professor at San Francisco State University, suggests hobbies that are less relevant to one’s career are paradoxically more beneficial for it.

 

"Whatever the activity is that you're doing in your free time, it becomes incredibly more valuable if it is different from what you've been doing most recently in your work environment," Eschelman told Fast Company in a previous interview. "People need to be mindful and aware of what resources they're using in the work environment to realize which resources they need to protect and refuel in their free time," he said.
