How Are People Really Using LinkedIn?

How Are People Really Using LinkedIn? | coaching | Scoop.it

Professional networking service LinkedIn blasted through the 100-million-user mark in March, making it even more powerful for finding a job, keeping up with colleagues and promoting your resume.

 

LinkedIn is growing so quickly, it's adding a new member each second. As the size of its network grows, LinkedIn is steadily getting more useful. But how are people really using the fast-growing service? Researchers at Lab 42 asked 500 LinkedIn users that question and many more, and came up with a variety of answers in this infographic.

 

Among the fun facts they uncovered: We found it interesting the way top level executives use the service in vastly different ways from entry-level workers. Let us know in the comments how you like to use LinkedIn, or if you don't use the service, why not?...

Tales of Bad Bosses and why they don't need to be

Tales of Bad Bosses and why they don't need to be | coaching | Scoop.it
Some bosses seem to completely lack empathy. Not only does this make life pretty miserable for their employees, empathy turns out to be very important to leadership success as well. The good news, we can increase empathy.

 

So why is it that some bosses are great and others are so bad? One big reason is an empathy deficit that seems to get worse the higher up you go in an organization. In Robb Smith’s TED talk he notes how CEOs have the lowest emotional intelligence in the entire workforce. Empathy, what Dianne Stober calls, “one of the most basic capacities required for understanding one another,” is often lacking in leaders. Oh yeah, and it matters to business success! Forbes notes that “the reality is that for business leaders to experience success, they need to not just see or hear the activity around them, but also relate to the people they serve.” We already know how important engagement is, and you can imagine how much engagement falls off around a lack of empathy.  Just think of the shift in engagement when being told to Skype in to a funeral!

 

With empathy so important, how does one develop this quality that seems elusive to so many leaders? In Ginny Whitelaw’s latest book, The Zen Leader, she describes how to boast empathy in her chapter on the flip From Controlling to Connecting. She describes how the energy patterns of FEBI can be a power tool to help summon real empathy that fully allows you to ‘become the other person.’

Well, let's look at it from another angle... there is a line of thougth (de Shazer, solution-focus) saying that everybody is always using the best coping  pattern he could... if the majority of the senior leaders show - in the workplace (!!!) - not or not enugh empathy, perhaps it's not accidental... perhaps the empathy was not needed from the college (perhaps earlier...) on, perhaps to the things/positions to achieve (what was the - said or not said - hoped target of the parents) the empathy was an obstacle, a weakening factor... why we do like we do not know that? 

 

There is a grand canyon between all these, very  benevolent trials, to write books for them (what they don't read or don't understand in the same way it was intended...) and  the harsh reality of the more and more competitive , very distressful  working environment... communication of the deaf...

 

Not to bomb them with the maximum requirement what is good for a coach, trainer but might be harmful (because  of the deviating, weakening effect) for the boss... help him to find his/her sweet point between being a "normal" boss and being inspirative  and  somebody worth to work with, to follow...

 

By the way it's also not true that the staff really like the too accomodating, very loveable boss who by the way is not enough decisive and assertive... 

 

I'd say: help them to find their (emphaty vs control)  sweet spot, the right balance and  forget this 100% empathy bullshit for the bosses if you want to be taken seriously by them...:-)))

My daily life at work and play so often involves Socratic questioning - I never get bored and constantly on a learning curve! Thanks for sharing this great resource!

There is an approach to solving a problem, by Guy Brousseau. It looks much like this process.And it works!
