Walk AWAY in Your Value – The Go-Giver Way

Walk AWAY in Your Value – The Go-Giver Way | Building the Digital Business | Scoop.it

In this post by Certified Go-Giver Speaker/Coach and Ninja Selling Instructor, Dennis Giannetti, he takes a phrase we often use in terms of applying Go-Giver principles, “Walk In Your Value” and he provides a totally different angle. And, as is always the case with Dennis…he makes a LOT of sense.

Enjoy Dennis’ wisdom! – Bob Burg

“People often ask me: How do you balance Noble Purpose with the need to make a profit? My answer is, you don’t balance Noble Purpose against profits. Successful organizations make more profits because their Noble Purpose drives their business decisions.” Lisa Earle McLeod

Intelligence is Important but Integrity Matters More - Lolly Daskal | Leadership and Personal Development

Intelligence is Important but Integrity Matters More - Lolly Daskal | Leadership and Personal Development | Building the Digital Business | Scoop.it
Integrity is not a process or a practice, but a principle that leaders treasure when they know what matters.
Amy Melendez's insight:

From the article: Expertise is significant but humility is honorable.

Humility of heart is the first step toward both virtue and wisdom. A lack of wisdom and intelligence can be compensated with scrupulous integrity, but without humility you leave yourself no room to learn and grow.

    Integrity is the most important of all the virtues.

It’s a requirement for accomplishing anything of value. When you become a leader of integrity, you leadership is clearly defined and meaningful.

    Integrity is the sum of who you are. Guard it, nurture it—and lead with it.

Lead From Within: Integrity is not a process or a practice, but a principle that leaders treasure when they know what matters.

Sharon Burton brought this to my attention, as she stated on Facebook that she was getting a demo on it. It does look like an interesting tool. I don't know anything about it other that what's on the page, but any new tool like a CMS for tech documentation is worth sharing. 

 

If you know anything about this tool, let us know what you think in the comments!

Anders Svensson's comment, January 9, 9:47 AM
Hi Danielle,

Thanks for scooping this! I am the CEO and co-founder of the company behind Paligo, (Expertinfo). It would sound rather biased to tell you what I think about it in any objective way :-) But I am very happy to hear you find it interesting, and what I can tell you about it is that it is brand new, it was just launched at the end of 2014. We are very excited to be able to offer this as a new alternative for companies looking for a powerful and user-friendly CCMS to move to structured authoring. It is XML-based, supports topic-based authoring, and usability is a top priority. I won’t go into the features here, that would take too long. Anyone interested in seeing it for yourselves is very welcome to check out the web site (it will be more extensive soon) and sign up for a web demo, or just contact me here and I’ll set it up!

Seven tips for breaking into the world of Instructional Design

Seven tips for breaking into the world of Instructional Design | Building the Digital Business | Scoop.it
What does an instructional designer do when he or she is at work?

He hobnobs with clients who may be life coaches, entrepreneurs, healthcare professionals, owners of production units, real estate magnates, or banking professionals.

He gets to read on and learn about a mindboggling array of subjects—self-development tactics, new software systems, fire safety, managing diseases and medical emergencies, flying an airplane, food packaging, and everything else under the sun.

He shares office with creative graphic designers and illustrators who make scenes and people come alive with their images, wordsmiths who paint pictures with their words, and maverick programmers who bring together the words and the pictures to create exciting courses.

He looks for inspiration in movies, video games, books, and toys.

There's never a dull moment at work for the instructional designer. And he gets paid to have the fun!

Jan Bergmans's curator insight, December 22, 2014 5:41 PM
Provide yourself an exit strategy

Some day, you're not going to want to do it any more. You're going to want to move on from this project and try something else.

I was told recently by a very wise colleague that the first thing that you should do, on assuming an important job, is to identify the person that's going to replace you. Some day, you're going to move on from that position, and much of what you've invested into the position will be lost unless you are actively taking steps to ensure that your impact outlives your own involvement.

Some folks, of course, strive to make themselves irreplaceable. They do this by hiding information, by ensuring that everything depends on them, and by actively scaring off anybody that might take over. Some people do this intentionally, while others do it instinctively, out of desire to protect their position. But by actively looking for your replacement, you create a culture of openness in which people won't be trying to oust you, so the other goal is accomplished, too. (Publicly documenting everything you do is another huge part of that, and an article for another day.)

By mentoring your replacement, you remove so much of the stress of carrying the entire operation yourself. You can begin to delegate things. You can spend more time thinking about the future, and less time fixing things that are broken that only you can fix.

And when the time comes to depart, you can rest assured that you're leaving things in hands that will continue your vision.

Leave a legacy that actually matters

Open source is code. Code gets refactored, forked, and deleted. When you leave that project, your impact will dwindle as your contributions are gradually patched away.

The time that you spend mentoring people will endure. It will stretch into other projects, other industries, and other decades. Every moment that you invest in another person will extend your impact a little further past your own direct influence.
