The Correlation Between Drinking With Coworkers And Success

The Correlation Between Drinking With Coworkers And Success | Healthcare technology | Scoop.it
We now have data on that creeping notion that the "cool kids" in college were more popular because they knew how to party harder.A new study, with the fitting title “Drinking To Reach The Top,” found that more frequent drinking is linked to higher social status.For both sexes, more drinks in one outing meant higher social standing. Binge-drinking is defined as having five or more drinks in one sitting for males, or four or more for females.With more young people going on to take leadership positions, how does this look in the modern workplace?

Why Pope Francis Is So Effective: 8 Lessons for Every Leader

Why Pope Francis Is So Effective: 8 Lessons for Every Leader | Healthcare technology | Scoop.it
Pope Francis has approval ratings any leader could envy: 88 percent of American Catholics think he's doing a good job, and nearly three quarters of Americans in general view him with favor. What is he doing right?To answer that question, business author Jeffrey A. Krames examined His Holiness's approach from a leadership perspective, and the result is Lead with Humility: 12 Leadership Lessons from Pope Francis. Though a non-Catholic, Krames was inspired to write about the pontiff because he is the child of Holocaust survivors, he explains. "When I saw Pope Francis, I thought he was the anti-Hitler."Here are some practices that make Pope Francis so effective--and that any business leader could use:1. Reach out to non-customers.

Lesson 1 'reach out to non-customers'

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, August 4, 2014 12:24 PM

It is clear that the  Pope has been quite effective as a leader.  He has excelled at managing change, at aligning the Catholic Church with it core purposes, at creating processes and procedures that have helped the Church work better, and at engaging Catholics more comprehensively in their Church.

Sales Leaders - Take note.  Leading a 1.2 Billion size organization is no easy task.  Take a moment to see how it can be replicated for any size organization.

Is Being A Good Parent And A Good CEO Impossible?

Is Being A Good Parent And A Good CEO Impossible? | Healthcare technology | Scoop.it
Max Schireson, the CEO of database giant MongoDB, is stepping down after four years with the company, citing his desire to spend more time with family. "I cannot be that leader given the geography of the majority of the company in New York and my family in California," he writes in a blog post titled "Why I am leaving the best job I ever had." "I decided the only way to balance was by stepping back from my job." While "spending more time with the family" is often a euphemism for "the company is pushing me out," that does not appear to be the case for Schireson, who is staying on as vice chairman.We're accustomed to women citing family as a reason to pull back at work, but it's much rarer to hear men admit to the same, as Schireson points out:

TOWS, the next step of SWOT analysis

TOWS, the next step of SWOT analysis | Healthcare technology | Scoop.it
No, TOWS is not just a rearrangement of SWOT. One leads into the other. Several of the responses to my SWOT entry recommended using a TOWS approach. Sensing an opportunity to create a similar entry, I looked at all the ways that you could display a TOWS analysis. Alas, there seems to be only one main way, so here is a quick look at TOWS analysis. For a detailed background on TOWS and its implementation, read the 19 page original article on TOWS by Heinz Weihrich in Long Range Plannin. [Hohhof article]

Is Integration the Key to Google Fit and HealthKit’s Success?

Is Integration the Key to Google Fit and HealthKit’s Success? | Healthcare technology | Scoop.it
As tech giants like Apple, Google and Samsung compete over dominance in the healthcare market, with their latest platforms and apps, the question remains will any or all of these innovations truly tap into the greater realm of consumer health? Aside from the buzz now emanating from consumers’ pockets, is there a real signal being sent out here about how to change healthcare, or will these latest consumer-concentric technologies add nothing more than noise?
Welltok's Scott Rotermund explains that what we really need from Google Fit and HealthKit is an integrated approach that not only collects data, but also meshes with the current healthcare ecosystem.What lessons learned from the disappointments associated with the consumer use of FitBit and others tell us about behavior change?We’ve learned two things:1. A cool gadget is not enough – The novelty will wear off along with the use of the wearable. In my experience, most people lose interest in their tracking device after a month – they learn their sleep patterns, know average steps, etc. To maintain usage, we’ve tied tracking devices to challenges, participatory incentives and personalized action plans with defined goals.2. Relying on the consumers to take action – With the startling statistics associated to preventable diseases like obesity and diabetes, it’s safe to say that we cannot expect consumers to take action on their own. These big tech giants are treating health activities as they would consumer electronics – the same rules don’t apply. To move beyond early adopters, they need to tie into programs that provide personalized guidance on how to use the trackers and the resulting data, and align those defined actions with the right incentives to get people moving.more at http://hitconsultant.net/2014/07/22/is-integration-the-key-to-google-fit-and-healthkits-success/
