No matter the flavor of the feedback – positive and yummy or negative and hard-to-swallow – there are a few very important things that you absolutely must do when you ask for feedback: Say “Thank you” to those whom you asked to provide the feedback Share highlights of what you learned Set goals and make commitments to address the areas identified in the feedback Do something – take action to achieve your developmental goals and honor your commitments - See more at: http://chatsworthconsulting.com/2014/02/27/caution-dont-ask-if-you-wont-act/#sthash.ogxokMIr.dpuf

5 Trends That Will Drive The Future of Technology

Today, we’re on the brink of a new digital paradigm, where the capabilities of our technology are beginning to outstrip our own. Computers are deciding which products to stock on shelves, doing legal research and even winning game shows. They will soon be driving our cars and making medical diagnoses. Here are five trends that are driving it all.

1. No-Touch Interfaces

We’ve gotten use to the idea that computers are machines that we operate with our hands. Just as we Gen Xers became comfortable with keyboards and mouses, Today’s millennial generation has learned to text at blazing speed.  Each new iteration of technology has required new skills to use it proficiently.

That’s why the new trend towards no-touch interfaces is so fundamentally different.  From Microsoft’s Kinect to Apple’s Siri to Google’s Project Glass, we’re beginning to expect that computers adapt to us rather than the other way around.

The basic pattern recognition technology has been decades in the making and, thanks to accelerating returns, we can expect computer interfaces to become almost indistinguishable from humans in little more than a decade.

2. Native Content

While over the past several years technology has become more local, social and mobile, the new digital battlefield will be fought in the living room, with Netflix, Amazon, Microsoft, Google, Apple and the cable companies all vying to produce a dominant model for delivering consumer entertainment.

One emerging strategy is to develop original programming in order to attract and maintain a subscriber base.  Netflix recently found success with their “House of Cards” series starring Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright.  Amazon and Microsoft quickly announced their own forays into original content soon after.

Interestingly, HBO, which pioneered the strategy, has been applying the trend in reverse. Their HBO GO app, which at the moment requires a cable subscription, could easily be untethered and become a direct competitor to Netflix.

(From the article): Expressing gratitude effectively is an art form. If done correctly, gratitude generates positive energy that benefits the employee, you, and your organization as a whole. Gratitude doesn’t have to be extravagant as long as it’s sincere. 

Ron McIntyre's curator insight, March 31, 2014 12:56 PM

There is great power in authentic gratitude!

Steve Holmes's curator insight, June 7, 2017 1:48 PM
" People don't quit companies first, people quit people first," The Radical Leap, Steve Farbar.  How do we engage gratitude at a corporate, Team or individual level?  We should start with ourselves. " Attitude controls your altitude" the fundamental truth to this quote lies in the fact that we must rise above ourselves to see from where we started and reflect on  the joys, pains, and pitfalls we, as Leaders, have experienced along the way.  Out of 86,000 seconds in a day a simple "thank you" takes less than 2 seconds.  If we reflect and acknowledge our journey with an attitude of gratitude then we can never lose touch with the employee that collectively makes up our Team, company or organization. Find a key employee, or tenured employee that consistently models the character, culture, or credibility of your brand and "thank" them.  The act of gratitude does not need a major corporate announcement, most of the time, but will hit the mark when you choose to engage your employee during their daily routine, when you step into "their" world.

CHURCH: Multisite Evolution ~ What should be the 'new normal' for multisite churches?

CHURCH: Multisite Evolution ~ What should be the 'new normal' for multisite churches? | Leaderlifter | Scoop.it

By Ed Stetzer of Lifeway Research

 

No longer just a new trend, they now number more than 5,000 churches-- and growing -- some profitable, some not.

 

As we saw in some the megachurch research, multisite churches defy a large number of the stereotypes with which they are associated. The facts from the study are clear. Multisite churches:

 

> Reach more people than single site churches.

> Tend to spread healthy churches to more diverse communities

> Have more volunteers in service as a percentage than single site churches

> Baptize more people than single site

> Tend to activate people into ministry more than single site.

How Successful People Cure Their Blindspots

Do you know what your leadership blindspots are? It’s a trick question because, by definition, blindspots are areas where you lack awareness of your weakness. Many coaches casually refer to them as “derailers.” A leader continues to advance and climb the career ladder until an unknown weakness suddenly derails her career. Robert [...]

It's always interesting to discover that something was in front of you all the time. 

Cruise Line Class's curator insight, April 15, 2014 6:39 AM

Really enjoyed this article!

 

As an Executive Coach one of the greatest aha moments comes when b.lindspots are revealed.  Leaders will say things like "this is the first time I have ever heard this, or I have never been told this by anyone else." 

 

We all have blindspots, and as soon as we uncover some old ones new ones will certainly surface.

 

Enjoy the article.

 

Until next time...PS - Live on Purpose!

Emeric Nectoux's curator insight, April 21, 2014 6:37 AM

In this article, Kevin Kruse summarize some of the blindspots describes by the Robert Bruce Shaw in his new book, Leadership Blindspots: How Successful Leaders Identify and Overcome the Weaknesses That Matter


As short extract, here are some of my favorites: 

  • Overestimating your strategic capability. This is often the blind spot of leaders who have strong operational backgrounds, but then get promoted into higher levels of the organization where their role is more strategic.
  • Valuing being right over being effective. This blind spot occurs when a leader thinks she already knows the correct answer or best course of action, and is therefore unwilling to spend additional time listening to others. She may even interrupt people, or call conversations to a conclusion. Her followers quickly learn that it’s a waste of time to raise contrary opinions and ideas.
  • Failing to balance the what with the how. This blind spot occurs when leaders focus only on the measurable results of the organization. In extreme situations this can lead their followers to short-term thinking, or worse, unethical behaviors.
  • Avoiding the tough conversations. Leaders who struggle with crucial conversations send mixed messages to individual reports, which leads to unresolved issues, and in turn can frustrate other high-performing members.
