Commentaire intéresssant à propos de la curation.

Ivo Nový's curator insight, December 19, 9:46 AM
Guillaume Decugis's insight:

When we started working on Scoop.it, we had a lot of questions on why we even needed tools for content curation. Some were questioning the purpose or the effectiveness of curation, others were convinced it was a valuable practice but challenged the need for a tool. "I don't need a tool to tweet links, right?" or what Julia McCoy refers to as Myth #10 in that great post. 


She does a great job debunking 12 misconceptions which are still quite common about content curation but which luckily are starting to die as content curation delivers more and more results and thanks to educational content like hers.

donhornsby's curator insight, December 20, 7:55 AM

(From the article): Myth #7: You Aren’t a Thought Leader If You Use Third Party Content. Truthfully, I can see why digital marketers would initially think this. When I first heard of curating content, I thought the same thing. However, I quickly learned that this could not be further from the truth. Curating third party content actually does make you a thought leader for several reasons:

 

You show honesty: you show your audience that sometimes your influencers can write something or present something better than you. You can’t always be the best at everything, and that is OK.You can actually connect with said influencer by mentioning them on Twitter when you link to their article or content piece and get them to potentially follow you, thus building a very valuable connection.You build credibility with that third party source, and possibly attract more third parties that want to share the content that you create.Curating influencer content helps build your brand, which can lead to gaining a new audience that respects your thoughts.

As you can see, curating content does not make you take a backseat. It is an opportunity to build credibility with both your audience and your influencers.

This article provides a useful guide to sharpen leadership skills based on these classic and popular models.

Roy Sheneman, PhD's curator insight, November 6, 12:46 PM

Amen....

Tony Adams's curator insight, November 6, 3:42 PM

I'm familiar with some of these models, but certainly not all of them.  There are a few other models that are not on the list.  I think the message here is that there are different leadership models for different situations.  


Whilst these models are all useful, don't get sucked into thinking that all models will work all the time.  Don't drown in buzzwords, concepts, famous names and complex theories...be prepared to step back, think about your team, your environment, your own skill set - and develop an approach that works for you.
