Nelson Mandela’s Legend: 7 Leadership Lessons

Nelson Mandela’s Legend: 7 Leadership Lessons | Social Media News,Technology News | Scoop.it

Karin Sebelin's curator insight, June 26, 2013 10:34 AM

Article by +Steve Tappin - The CEO Guru 

We have heard that Nelson Mandela is critically ill in hospital and close to his passing. In a world where people frequently express their disillusionment with politicians and their inability to make a difference, he’s a shining star.

The article sees seven profound lessons that CEOs and leaders can learn from Nelson Mandela:

(1) Master your meaning and your emotions

I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul,” Mandela likes to quote from W. E. Henley. When his African National Congress (ANC) had been banned by the apartheid South African government in 1960, Mandela had advocated that the party abandon its policy of non-violence, leading to a sentence of life imprisonment. Keeping his emotions in check, relations with his captors improved as he sought to “communicate with them in a message that says I recognize your humanity”.

(2) Treat the losers with dignity and turn them into partners

Mandela understood that in a negotiation, both sides have to gain. There must be no winners and no losers. Learning the lessons from Germany at end of the First World War, he believed, “You mustn’t compromise your principles, but you mustn’t humiliate the opposition. No one is more dangerous than one who is humiliated.”

(3) Shift perspectives through symbolism and shared experiences

CEOs should learn to acknowledge the past and draw a line under it. Then, through shared experiences, they must forge a powerful new purpose that people can connect to and believe in.

(4) Embody the spirit of Ubuntu

In 2007, in partnership with entrepreneur +Richard Branson and singer Peter Gabriel, Mandela founded ‘The Elders’. Composed of former heads of state, revolutionaries, peacemakers and chaired by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, The Elders work as a small, dedicated group of individuals, using their collective experience and influence to help tackle some of the most pressing problems facing the world today.

In the launch address, Mandela talked about bringing “the spirit of Ubuntu: that profound African sense that we are human only through the humanity of other human beings.” In a thread that defines his whole life, he said, “I believe that in the end that it is kindness and accommodation that are the catalysts for real change.”

(5) Everybody feels bigger in your presence

Time and again people comment on Mandela’s strong personality, saying that he has a aura about him. Leaders and CEOs who have this x-factor succeed. 

(6) Build a sustainable fellowship around your cause

CEOs should develop a true fellowship structure that devolves responsibility and brings on promising talent.

7) Bottle the dream for future generations

Mandela showed us how one person with humility, a dream and a connecting cause could magnify himself and inspire us all. He should take great pride in the legacy that he leaves behind, as it continues to ripple across the world and through future generations. Nelson Mandela: a true legend.

This article is dedicated to +Nadine Hack who knows Nelson Mandela personally.

Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus: Deadly piglet virus spreads to nearly 200 U.S. farm sites

Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus: Deadly piglet virus spreads to nearly 200 U.S. farm sites | Social Media News,Technology News | Scoop.it
A swine virus deadly to young pigs, and never before seen in North America, has spiked to 199 sites in 13 states - nearly double the number of farms and other locations from earlier this month.

 

Iowa, the largest U.S. hog producer, has the most sites testing positive for Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus: 102 sites, as of June 10. The state raises on average 30 million hogs each year, according to the Iowa Pork Producers Association.

PEDV, most often fatal to very young pigs, causes diarrhea, vomiting and dehydration. It also sickens older hogs, though their survival rate tends to be high. The total number of pig deaths from the outbreak since the first cases were confirmed May 17 is not known.

Researchers at veterinarian diagnostic labs, who are testing samples as part of a broad investigation into the outbreak, have seen a substantial increase in positive cases since early June, when data on the PEDV outbreak showed it at some 103 sites nationwide.

The data was compiled and released last week by Iowa State University, University of Minnesota, Kansas State University and South Dakota State University.

The virus does not pose a health risk to humans or other animals and the meat from PEDV-infected pigs is safe for people to eat, according to federal officials and livestock economists.

But the virus, which is spreading rapidly across the United States, is proving harder to control than previously believed. In addition to Iowa, Oklahoma has 38 positive sites, Minnesota has 19 and Indiana has 10, according to the data.

Klout has been edging along with social analytics and scoring for a while now and now rolling out it's enterprise features. I wonder if they have as yet gripped enough serious social afficionados for this to work?

Martin (Marty) Smith's comment, July 1, 2013 6:23 AM
I think Klout scores for brands could work since there is no definitive way to connect top of the funnel (traffic generating) activities to bottom of the funnel conversion. Klout becomes a de facto standard where perhaps nothing else provides an accurate look at the importance or trends within Social Media Marketing. I wrote a piece not long ago about why Klout matters and most of that logic applies to grands and companies as well as individuals.
Michelle Gilstrap's curator insight, July 2, 2013 9:14 AM

Some consumers still don't understand Klout, but if you are a business, you need to understand it and know how to use it.

Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified four susceptibility loci for epithelial ovarian cancer

Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified four susceptibility loci for epithelial ovarian cancer | Social Media News,Technology News | Scoop.it

Evidence from twin and family studies suggests an inherited genetic component to epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) risk. Rare, high-penetrance alleles of genes such as BRCA1 and BRCA2 account for about 40% of excess familial risk, and GWAS have recently identified common risk alleles at 9p22, 8q24, 2q31 and 19p13, with two additional loci at 3q25 and 17q21 that approached genome-wide significance. However these alleles only explain 4% of excess familial risk, and more risk loci probably exist.

 

A study group therefore recently pooled the data from two GWAS to inform the selection of SNPs for a large-scale replication. The North American study comprised 4 independent case-control studies that included 1,952 cases and 2,052 controls. The second study was a 2-phase multicenter GWAS that included 1,817 cases and 2,354 controls in the first phase and 4,162 cases and 4,810 controls in the second phase.

 

The researchers carried out a fixed-effects meta-analysis from the two GWAS for ~2.5 million genotyped or imputed SNPs. They selected 24,551 SNPs associated with the risk of either all-histology (11,647 SNPs) or serous (12,904 SNPs) ovarian cancer on the basis of ranked P values. They designed assays for 23,239 SNPs and included them on a custom Illumina Infinium iSelect array (iCOGS) comprising 211,155 SNPs designed by the Collaborative Oncological Gene-environment Study (COGS) to evaluate genetic variants for association with risk of breast, ovarian and prostate cancers. They then genotyped these SNPs in cases and controls from 43 individual studies from the Ovarian Cancer Association Consortium (OCAC) that were grouped into 34 case-control strata. These included most of the samples genotyped in the initial GWAS. An integrated molecular analysis of genes and regulatory regions at these loci provided evidence for functional mechanisms underlying susceptibility and implicated CHMP4C in the pathogenesis of ovarian cancer.

How to Setup a Social Media Business Strategy

How to Setup a Social Media Business Strategy | Social Media News,Technology News | Scoop.it

Social media: learn how to successfully achieve your business objectives and reinforce your messaging and engagement with your audience.

 

With planning, your small business can use social media effectively.

 

Here are seven steps to a social media strategy for your business.


1. Determine Your Business Objectives for Social Media

How do you want to use social media to help your business? What goals do you want to achieve?

2. Know Your Audience

Determine the prospects and customers with whom you want to engage on social media. This is your target audience.

3. Choose Your “Hot Buttons”

Target your three to five main topics. These should be categories or words you want to place for in search optimization. Create content around these topics for which you want your business to be known.

4. Stake Your Social Media Turf

Create a presence on all major social media platforms.

5. Set Your Social Media Engagement

Be strategic with your social media time usage. It’s easy to spend more time than you need to on social media. A social media plan—together with a strategic approach—will help you find the right balance.

6. Plan Your Resource Use

For many small businesses, the concept of planning resource utilization may be new. Even if you’re a solopreneur, you must take a strategic view of your time. If you don’t, you’ll find that you’re running from one online emergency to another.

7. Measure Your Social Media Results

Don’t forget to set up everything you’ll need to measure your results. The metrics you’ll want to track will be based on the business objectives you defined.

Even if your job is just that, you can learn from other channels and the data they provide. If your client or company does more than just search engine optimisation, then they they need to be tracking as much of these efforts as possible.With a new Analytics module now live in DistilledU, this post serves as an introduction to tracking different marketing channels such as:- Organic search- Paid search and display- Email marketing- Social- Conversion rate optimisation...
