Michael Wilcox's curator insight, March 2, 6:29 PM

The value and service of client base is paramount to business success yet too often considered as a cost centre rather than the profit centre it can be. Social media increases the reach of both good and bad customer services and experience - in the long run, it pays to take care of current clients.

8 Ways Neuroscience Can Improve Your Presentations

8 Ways Neuroscience Can Improve Your Presentations | Small Business Marketing | Scoop.it

Over the past few decades, enormous amounts of effort (and dollars) have gone into understanding how the mind works. This is good news for you, especially when it comes to public speaking, which requires getting into the minds (and hearts) of an audience. Neuroscience research offers loads of insights that every business person ought to apply to presentations.

 

Here are eight rules, based upon conversations with Stephen M. Kosslyn, former chair of the psychology department at Harvard University, and what he knows about the brain.

How To Use Your Intuition To Get Ahead

How To Use Your Intuition To Get Ahead | Small Business Marketing | Scoop.it

“Intuition is real; it comes from memory,” he says. “The brain is always searching for things you’ve known or experienced that are similar to what you’re experiencing now. When it identifies one, it gives you that feeling of intuition or deja vu.”

 

But the memory could come from anywhere, including a past experience, a friend’s past experience, or even the plot line from a movie, says Duggan. “If you think the feeling through, you might be able to identify where it’s coming from,” he says. “If it’s coming from a science fiction movie you saw when you were 13, it might be a bad idea to listen to it.”

Linking Knowledge Management to Content Strategy | Tallyfox | Small Business Marketing | Scoop.it

Dr. Dan:  This article, I believe, serves as a good example of not understanding what Knowledge Management and what Content Management both are, as well as the differences between them and their overlaps.

Dr. Dan Kirsch's curator insight, April 14, 7:53 AM

Best sound bite for demonstrating that the author clearly lacks an understanding of what Knowledge Management and Content Management are:  "Recently, I've come to realize that knowledge management and content strategy are almost two sides of the same coin. The former is for an internal audience, the latter is for an external audience."


Some mistakenly use the term Knowledge Management when they really mean Content Management (or perhaps even, Document Management).  And I think that it's good to revisit this discussion every couple of years.


Here's a neat definition/explanation of what Content Management is: 

"Content management, or CM, is the set of processes and technologies that support the collection, managing, and publishing of information in any form or medium. When stored and accessed via computers, this information has come to be referred to, simply, as content or, to be precise, digital content. Digital content may take the form of text (such as electronic documents), multimedia files (such as audio or video files), or any other file type that follows a content lifecycle requiring management."


And here's a post by Nick Milton which discusses the overlaps and confusion between CM and KM.


I'll let you pick and choose your own definition of KM, but clearly Content Management is not the other side of the same coin as Knowledge Management, and to suggest that KM is somehow simply or only (collecting, managing and publishing - as a process) and for an internal audience is quite a bit myopic.


When you need KM, you need KM.  Not CM, or DM, or IM.  KM.


Perhaps the question is whether you see that overlap, or do you perhaps see CM, DM, or IM (individually or collectively) as a subset of KM or just connected to the KM picture?

10 Timeless Leadership Lessons to Help Expand Your Influence

 

#leadership #management #business

donhornsby's curator insight, May 22, 6:14 AM

Leaders must take more time to stop, reflect and assess their own thinking, capabilities and aptitudes. 

 

 

(From the article): As leaders, you must begin to look beyond the obvious and open your eyes to see the opportunities previous unseen.   Leadership requires you to have circular vision and when you begin to grow complacent, you only see the obvious details before you – rather than those they lie around, beneath and beyond what you seek.  In fact, your mindset becomes stagnate because you are not stretching your perspectives enough to see more than you want to.

 

When you fall into this trap, it’s time to reshuffle the deck, and map out the internal and external factors that are influencing your thinking. You must begin to identify areas that can be improved –  such as relationships, workshop culture, networking, how you are investing in yourself (or lack thereof), etc.

 

It’s not experience, but rather opportunity that is the true mother of success.   Be more mindful about how you manage opportunity before it begins to manage you.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 22, 7:41 AM

The first lesson is a good place to begin. We become so busy we do not look up and from side-to-side. Leaders need to be present and aware of what is happening and not happening. They need to be aware of who is best served to take the reins in a given situation.

 

In School, leadership and management should be intertwined. Quite often, I found that the latter was used almost exclusively and leadership did not exist.

Life-cycle inventory analysis of concrete production: A critical review

Life-cycle inventory analysis of concrete production: A critical review | Small Business Marketing | Scoop.it

Concrete is one of the most widely used building materials with a global consumption rate approaching 25 gigatonnes per year. Consequentially, its environmental burden is significant in terms of resource use and environmental emissions. There is a diverse audience of decision makers and manufacturers who are interested in understanding and lowering the environmental impact of concrete and other buildings materials, which requires a life-cycle assessment (LCA) approach. A critical first step in any LCA is the compilation of a credible life-cycle inventory (LCI), upon which subsequent life-cycle impact assessment (LCIA) can be based. This article reviews the strengths and weaknesses of concrete LCIs to date, and offers a research roadmap to improve the quality of future cement and concrete LCIs and meet the needs of major LCA users.

What Separates The Successful From The Unsuccessful?

What Separates The Successful From The Unsuccessful? | Small Business Marketing | Scoop.it

The concept of success can be somewhat subjective. After all, what you define as “success” in your career or personal relationships, for example, can be quite different from what I deem to be successful. But in general, there are some conventional characteristics that we can generally attribute to successful people: a strong sense of self-awareness, a desire to improve, and an ability to delay gratification, to name a few. These characteristics are innate in some, but like most skills, can also be learned or honed. But inevitably, these are what separates the successful from the unsuccessful.
