A Crisis Of Leadership - What's Next?

A Crisis Of Leadership - What's Next? | Social media | Scoop.it

Via Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor
Shakira A. Ali's insight:

Frankly, I think we're looking for leadership in all the wrong places. I saw an interesting comment by Neil DeGrasse, astronomer and scientist. He observed that more than half of congressional seats are filled by lawyers - people who rely on the SKILL of arguing a point as a means of WINNING a point. This has nothing to do with whether the points made are true, moral, ethical or move society forward in any way.  Maybe we should be looking among the "masses" - those people who are living and working everyday to make life better "on the ground," so to speak. Entrepreneurs. Community organizers and activitists. Those who sit-in and protest and work in food kitchens and community gardens. These are the people who are coming up with solutions on a daily basis, and are unconcerned with, "scoring points."

Our world is suffering greatly at the hands of people who have placed their desire to be right above the desire to achieve the right outcome. They confuse their need for an ego boost, their quest for power, and their thirst for greed with leadership. Many of the symptoms of poor leadership we’re seeing today may seemingly resolve themselves in the near term, but the greater problem won’t go away on its own.

No More Generalists in Marketing

No More Generalists in Marketing | Social media | Scoop.it

In the online world, rapidly becoming the only world that matters to many of us, specialists rule the day...Strangely (or not) entire cultures have grown up around the type of people who are Facebook users verses Twitter users, texters verses people who use voicemail. (I have a friend who says on his voice mail that he never responds to voicemail.)Culture is driving marketing because the mass in mass marketing is going away. That's not news, but what is replacing it, is. We're going from mass marketing to communicating among micro cultures.A fable: Recently I needed glasses. I decided to try Warby Parker, an online purveyor of glasses with a certain look to their website, a certain flavor to their images, a certain culture. For every pair of glasses a customer purchases, they donate a pair, after the one-for-one Tom's Shoes model. There exists an entire culture-class of glasses buyers who want style, a good price, and to feel like they've done something good. The culture of Warby Parker is as distinct from Lenscrafters as Four Barrel Coffee is from Starbucks....

This posts resonates with me. I am calling it Clusterized Marketing or Groups Marketing.

We've moved! Mass Communication no longer works. It's micro-cultures that count most.

The best advice I ever got from my mentor was: "you're spending too much time on the top line and notenough on the bottom line."

Lynne M. Williams BS, MA, ABD★'s curator insight, October 18, 2013 1:14 AM

Great advice!

harish magan's curator insight, October 25, 2013 11:03 PM

No man (or woman) is an island, and business owners need to seek advice and guidance from other successful business owners, if they themselves are to become successful in their respective endeavours.

 

One of the best ways to become better as a business owner, is to apply relevant advice that other business owners have successfully applied to their businesses, that they themselves received from others who went before them.

 

This excellent article, drawing on feedback from 13 successful Australian entrepreneurs, offers 13 great pieces of sound business advice that any business owner can take on board to improve the performance of their own business.

Have You Heard All the Hype About Content Marketing? The New 'Thing'? - Business 2 Community

Have You Heard All the Hype About Content Marketing? The New 'Thing'? - Business 2 Community | Social media | Scoop.it

Like, seriously. How many experts can simultaneously shout from roof-tops (virtually of course since rooftop shouting is so passe’ – just like billboards and newspaper ads – now it’s all about blog posts!) about the amazing new marketing method – #CONTENTMARKETING!!!!!

 

Have You Heard All the Hype About Content Marketing? The New Thing? Not only is the frenzy resulting in volumes of asinine content like press releases announcing klout scores, but it also fundamentally misses the point. Content marketing isn’t new. This great infographic that @JoePulizzi recently included in one of his posts shows that the practice is at least a century old, if not 4 millennium.So if it’s not actually new…Then what’s the hype? Fair question.

 

And the answer isn’t content, it’s ubiquity of high speed internet access and quality of search engine results....

Hilarious! 

Content marketing. Something that has been around for a long time. How we use it and why we still use it to this day.
