Empathy... so true!

Yes, I totally agree.
John Rudkin's curator insight, April 18, 2013 5:48 PM

Leadership is all too easily manipulated to personal ends. There is always a personal competion going on. Sonmeone always wants what you have, and you yearn for "better".  Sad really.  Empathy cannot be learned, it has to be instilled.  It takes a certain sort of person to be a great leader - one who is led without recourse to demand leadership.

Good read and something to think about in our competition, conflict, challenge, and cost-constrained organizational climates. We need horizontal AND vertical empathy.

Is Your Business Monitoring What Matters On Social Media? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Is Your Business Monitoring What Matters On Social Media? [INFOGRAPHIC] | Zen Life | Scoop.it

A recent study revealed that almost half of companies are not monitoring their online social media communities.

 

More than one-third said that they only measure Likes, comments and interactions on Facebook, with fewer than one in four actively measuring the ROI of their social media campaigns.

Social media affects your bottom line; brands that are proactively using these tools see numerous benefits. And for those that aren’t, the absence of social media can also impact their bottom lines, albeit in a very different way.

This infographic takes a closer look at why the shift to in-depth social media monitoring is critical for the modern business.

The recent SEC ruling on Regulation FD may bring more attention to social media monitoring. http://sco.lt/5GMM1x

Drew Hodges's curator insight, February 19, 5:58 PM

This article looks at how we have almost become lazy with our sampling methods. For example when we look up keyword searches like a brand name, it is more effective to look at the whole conversation. Another common metric we use is using sample sets of data, although there is so much data it would be impossible to look at every single piece of data, it is important to set a sample size big enough so that the data has minimal outliers. For example a sample size of 10 might give you a totally different picture than a sample size of 100.  

 

What is not talked about in this article that was touched on in class was the idea of getting the whole picture. For example with software they may be using keywords like they say in the article but it may not have the typical connotation when read in context of the statement.

The sales process, is in itself an important part in getting to yes, especially in B2B sales where overlooking important steps in the process will result in a definite no.


New entrepreneurs and new salespeople can be extremely passionate about the product or service they are promoting or selling, and whilst this can be a positive trait, it can backfire for a number of reasons and effect the sales outcomes negatively.


This excellent article, explains why it doesn't pay to get to exited if you want to achieve sales success, and it outlines the four mistakes that too much passion can cause you to make in your selling role.

Monika D'Agostino's comment, April 25, 2013 4:18 PM
So true. Being too excited about the product often leads to eager decisions and keeps sales people from listening to the prospect's needs.
