Karen Ostenried's curator insight, March 12, 8:09 PM

Remember people learn from you in 3 ways, audibly, visually and kinaesthetically. Which is why what you do with your body including your face is also so critical. 

Dave Wood's curator insight, March 14, 6:58 PM

The first 2 sentences of this article sum it all up:

"On average, your readers will only read 28% of the words on a page.

Can you tell your whole story in 2-3 sentences? Probably not."

 

As graphic/visual coaches this reinforces the value of recording and working through visuals to support and enhance  the normal  talking and  note taking.

The 7 Top Social Media Sites For Business (and why you want to use them) - Viralheat Social Media Strategy Blog | Social media and social engagement | Scoop.it

There is a lot of social media sites out there, but what are the differences between these platforms and why would businesses want to use each specific one? Depending on your industry some might work better for you than others, but I believe that all businesses should be using these top social networks as much as they can. Today, people are no longer turning to the yellow pages to find the services or products you offer, but instead they are doing a quick search online. Making sure you have a positive presence in the top social media sites is important. These are my personal thoughts and opinions on the seven top social media networks (by user base) and an idea of what type of content you might see and want to use on each one....

Jonathan Martin's comment, May 2, 2013 2:05 PM
As always, most people tend to fear acting on something they do not fully understand. I make it my priority to start them with the basic (1 network) and build their social presence one step at a time.
