A recent study found that female leaders bested their male peers on traits like empathy, influence, and conflict management, and even have a slight edge when it comes to being self-aware.

This article contains facts about women and how they do not make up a large part of the work force and facts about how they are discriminated against in the workplace. This relates to HTS because the women in Saudi Arabia can't find jobs because the men do not want them working.

This article speaks of how women are speaking up and having a lot of leadership in the office and outworking the men.

Go for the tick: people are more likely to share some content over others because the emotion evokes us to pass it on.

Pierrick Fischer's curator insight, August 27, 2013 8:49 AM

Slightly overcharged infographics but it reminds you of the importance of creating emotional content on social media. I see many neutral posts/tweets on company pages. Yet I think this is another hint of how important it is to drive emotions (good ones of course) to expand your reach and make your content shareable, viral!

While there are many qualities that distinguish millennials from other generations, "One of the key things to remember, he [the author] said, is that millennials are highly collaborative."  However, collaborative doesn't mean they are skilled at communicating, at least outside of today's common social media forums.  Generation Y also appreciates transparency.  Good points to consider in today's blended workforce.

Responsive Web Design Infographic: Benefits and Pitfalls

Responsive Web Design Infographic: Benefits and Pitfalls | Social Media Feed | Scoop.it

People are increasingly using mobile devices like tablets and smartphones to browse the Web. The variety of screen sizes, resolutions, and platforms people use to access webpages has given birth to the rise of responsive Web design, where developers create one single site to function properly across all devices instead of producing multiple dedicated site designs to work with particular screen sizes and platforms.

 

While responsive Web design can be a great way for developers to ensure that their site is compatible with all devices, implementing it instead of targeted Web designs also comes with certain drawbacks. Here is an overview of the changing climate of Web devices, followed by tips for evaluating whether or not you should implement a responsive design.

The former DR told him that note kept him from quiting the team numerous times because he felt appreciated and valued.

5 Steps For Optimizing Your LinkedIn Company Page

5 Steps For Optimizing Your LinkedIn Company Page | Social Media Feed | Scoop.it

Search And Social Meets Content And Influence

 

On April 3, the New York Times reported that LinkedIn is one of many competitors vying for a piece of Google’s search traffic.With over 5.7 billion professionally oriented searches performed on the site last year, LinkedIn has made continued efforts to improve the search experience, adding new features like auto-complete, suggested searches, automated alerts and a smarter query intent algorithm.

 

Content marketing on LinkedIn puts you and your business in front of the people you want to see it. Just like with Google, there is a renewed focus on content at LinkedIn as the company strives to compete with other social networks.A great example of this is LinkedIn’s recent acquisition and integration of SlideShare, a service used for uploading and sharing presentations.

 

Add to this the launch of new products like LinkedIn Today, LinkedIn Influencers (where a hand-picked crew of 200 celebrity professionals present exclusive content), and Sponsored Updates (allowing brands to promote whitepapers and branded content), and marketers have a powerful platform that combines search and social and connects content with influencers.

Tom Wilson's comment, September 15, 2013 4:28 PM
At this moment, America politicians and journalists are nurturing a number of dangerous perceptions about Russia and the world that President Putin was brushing up against in his comments about "AMerica exceptionalism". Basically, America is the most dangerous nation in the world because nobody can really challenge us and we think out shit doesn;t stink. Iraq is one consequence, but the attitudes of most of Washington is totally Cold War and everyone pretty well holds the Conservative position that we vanquished Russia in a war and we are entitled to the fruits of the conquerer, when the fact is Gorbachev pulled the plug on a bad idea and joined our side. But my point is that this is a another example of a shared reality based on perceptions that are unchallenged. I believe Obama, who is as prone to this point of view as any American, has the moral courage to reconsider this reality and, as I say, I think Syria will validate him and Putin before either man leaves office while Bush is hoping History will vindicate Dick Cheney in 50 years or so.
Tom Wilson's comment, September 15, 2013 4:44 PM
As far as the connection between "likability" and "hassles" is that the perceived need to be likable and the need for mission focus are not entirely collateral agendas: likability is not on the critical path, but there is always an element in a population for whom likability is the essential competence. Very often, there is a covert agenda attached to this requirement, which is to say, the people who want you to be more likable want to exercise a controlling variety over your behavior by limiting your variety. That is where the hassle comes in,
Tom Wilson's comment, September 15, 2013 5:17 PM
I just read the Likable versus leadership article and it is a useful discussion. I agree with much of it. In the military context, one of your tasks is to create player subordinates who can take your place if you are killed. I know that seems extreme, but that dimension should always be an element of command. This article brushes up against this issue in its statement that the object is to get people committed to the mission and not to the personalty of the leader. But the little preamble to the article presents an issue that defines the whole issue: leadership is not a popularity contest. Now, for my money, Steve Jobs was just a bully and he reflected a subculture in the business embraced of the winning through intimidation ethos of the Corleone family. It is very popular among MBA's, generally, the Donald Trump Kick Ass and Take Names You;re fired management style. The fact is, management by fear is the dominant management philosophy in the American corporate culture, so it is hard to narrow the phenomena down to a specific coalition. As a Ranger, I was something of a kick ass and take names kind of guy in the military, but the military is a different culture and it never lasted very long.You got to get everyone's attention and change of command is always hard on everyone. But in the day intercourse of work, it is hard to be the simple courtesies and conventions of polite society to buffer whatever rough edges your circumstances may require. My dad, who was a colonel, never failed to thank his drivers and other orderlies he might be assigned during his travels when it was not at all required by protocol. My dad was likable, but he could bring both privates and generals up short when he felt the need to do it. But he was always a model of courtesy. George C. Marshall went out of his way to avoid any appeal to flattery or off-task sociability: he called Eisenhower "Eisenhower" after he became president and he refused to allow FDR to call him anything but Marshall or General. He was one of the greatest of the greatest generation. But he was never popular, in the Access Hollywood sense of the word. On the other hand,George W. Bush's role as president of the Texas Rangers was almost entirely defined by likability. Of course, he was surrounded by people who did all the heavy lifting. Nevertheless, he was a very effective element of the Texas Ranger's business plan.
