How to Create an Infographic in Under an Hour [+10 Free Templates] | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

Wouldn't it be great if creating infographics was just as simple as writing regular ole text-based blog posts? Unfortunately, the reality is that making visual content like this usually takes a lot more time, effort, and let's face it -- skill -- than the written word. 

 

Usually.But considering the popularity and effectiveness of visual content in marketing today, you can't just afford to throw in the towel. That's why we decided to take all the pain and suffering out of infographic creation. 

 

Seriously -- don't throw in the towel just yet. You, too, can create professional-looking, high-quality infographics ... quickly! And I'm going to prove it. First things first ...

The Trouble With Stock Compensation

The Trouble With Stock Compensation | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

Paying outside board members with equity grants is becoming increasingly popular. Unfortunately, new research suggests that it leads to companies with less socially responsible behavior. This investigation comes at a time of public outcry over business actions that have had a negative impact on societal and environmental interests, including BP’s oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 and the 2008 financial crisis.

 

Research into social performance ratings and director compensation data for more than 1,100 U.S. public companies between 1998 and 2006 showed that while companies with high levels of outside director stock compensation in a given year exhibited higher financial performance in later years, “they also showed lower levels of responsibility to communities as measured by their charitable giving, relations with indigenous peoples, community employment and economic development, and support for basic public services,” write Yuval Deutsch and Mike Valente (both of Schulich School of Business, York University). A similar effect was evident with environmental performance and with human rights measures.

 

The findings suggest that paying outside directors with stock incentivizes them to ignore other stakeholders.

How to Lead in Ambiguous Times

How to Lead in Ambiguous Times | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it
A glance at today’s headlines leaves little doubt that we have entered a new era of geopolitical turbulence. Acts of terror and violence, humanitarian crises, and public health emergencies are rarely localized events. Instead, these shocks transcend borders, presenting global challenges. Just as one crisis fades, another rises to take its place. Adding further complexity, today’s enemy (unlike in that previous period of great geopolitical uncertainty, the Cold War) is often unseen or unknown.

This survey shows people recognize the importance of improving their software skills and staying safe on the web, and are motivated to master new skills and make themselves more digitally literate.

However, they are discouraged by time and cost restrictions, not knowing where to turn for help and feeling too embarrassed to admit inadequacies—even though they know these skills could help improve their lives.

CEO cuts his own pay by 90% to give every employee a huge pay rise

CEO cuts his own pay by 90% to give every employee a huge pay rise | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it
A chief executive has announced plans to raise the salary of every single employee at his company to at least $70,000 (£47,000) – and will fund it by cutting his own salary by 90 per cent.

     

Mr Price, 30, has gone one step further, after telling ABC News he thought CEO pay was “way out of whack”.
    

In order not to bankrupt the business, those on less than $70,000 now will receive a $5,000-per-year pay increase or an immediate minimum of $50,000, whichever is greater.
    

A spokesperson for the company said the average salary was currently $48,000, and the measure will see pay increase for about 70 members of staff.

    

...

“My pay is based on market rates and what it would take to replace me, and because of this growing inequality as a CEO that amount is really high. I make a crazy amount.
     

The New York Times, which was invited along for the Wolf of Wall Street-esque announcement, reported that after the cheering died down Mr Price shouted: “Is anyone else freaking out right now?”

If you own an e-reader you often can only buy e-books from the bookstore that is bundled on your device. Many of the budget e-readers out there don’t even have a bookstore that is accessible by users and many people are left to fend for themselves to load content on it.

Here is a comprehensive free e-book resource catalog online. All of these books are hardware agnostic, which means they are not locked by DRM (Digital Rights Management). All you have to do is simply download a title and load in via the USB cable from your computer to your e-reader. Many of these sites also provide the books in more than one format, so they will work with your Amazon Kindle, Kobo, Barnes and Noble Nook, Sony e-reader and hundreds of others.

The Iceberg That Sinks Organizational Change

The Iceberg That Sinks Organizational Change | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

Some aspects of organizational culture are visible on the surface, like the tip of an iceberg, while others are implicit and submerged within the organization. Because these ingrained assumptions are tacit and below the surface, they are not easy to see or deal with, although they affect everything the organization does.


Via Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor
AnnC's insight:

We need to discover the hidden variables that affect the change process in order to fully understand the task before us.

more...
Expressworks International's curator insight, March 16, 5:26 PM

At an industry conference this week attendees agreed that one of the issues that concerns them most is culture. This is not a surprising outcome since the industry has seen the entrance of many other competitors and a disruption to business as usual. 

 

Using the iceberg model we can illustrate why complex change like cultural transformation is so difficult. There is widespread knowledge that this kind of endeavor takes time and a lot of resources.  Why?  Because the heavier lifting needs to be done “below water” to ensure that there is complete understanding of impacts/challenges that the new normal poses to shared assumptions, perceptions, values, beliefs, traditions and feelings. Then plans must be created and implemented to support the learning and adjustment required for the new norms, traditions and procedures that come with transformation. This is not a quick program because under water is where we deal with the emotional and sometimes “messy” side of an organization. A good change program anticipates and prepares for the journey of transformation using the whole iceberg.  Leveraging a good change partner is a common strategy that allows the organization to focus on the “above water” activities while the partner helps with the “under water” challenges.

 

If you’re thinking about culture change, know what you’re getting into and that there are no short cuts. However, if you’re dealing with disruption in your industry, and a strategy of improvements is no longer good enough, you may well want to ask yourself, “Can I afford not to undertake culture change to meet my business goals?”
