New learning experiences and new opportunites  may make you feel uncertain at best and incompetent at worst. Remember that those feelings are temporary and a prelude to greater professional ability.

Rim Riahi's curator insight, January 28, 2014 11:27 PM

Why is it that so many smart, ambitious professionals are less productive and satisfied than they should or could be? Why do so many of them find their upward trajectories flattening into a plateau? In our experience—Tom’s as a business school...

The Failure Of Social Media

The Failure Of Social Media | Management | Scoop.it

Social Media doesn't work for the vast majority of small businesses.

That was the main message in the USA Today article titled, Study: Social media a bust for small businesses, published on April 17th, 2013. From the news item:"About 61% of small businesses don't see any return on investment on their social-media activities, according to a survey released Tuesday from Manta, a social network for small businesses. Yet, almost 50% say they've increased their time spent on social media, and only 7% have decreased their time. What businesses are trying to get out of social media: 36% said their goal was to acquire and engage new customers, 19% said to gain leads and referrals, and 17% said to boost awareness. Facebook was most cited as the hardest to maintain social-media platform, according to the survey." There is a big lesson in this data...

 

What you want from social media may be very different from what it is.

Sony A7 Review — First Impressions | ItsJustLight

Sony A7 Review — First Impressions | ItsJustLight | Management | Scoop.it

I’ve had the 24 megapixel Sony A7 full frame mirrorless camera for about a week now, along with the Sony FE 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Lens, Sonnar T* FE 35mm f/2.8 ZA Lens, and the Sonnar T* FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA Lens. I’ve got to confess that I’m not a big reader of the manuals that come with new cameras — I tend to shoot in full-manual mode most of the time and appreciate when a camera is designed with intuitive controls that are easy to figure out. As long as I can find the controls for the shutter speed, aperture, and ISO without too much difficulty, it’s usually smooth sailing with a camera. As soon as I had the Sony A7 unboxed, I was able to head outside and start shooting with it immediately. As with any new camera, the layout of the controls takes a bit of time to get used to, but they are relatively easy to figure out.....

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.

Why Good People Can't Find Jobs -- What You're Up Against - Vault: Blog

Why Good People Can't Find Jobs -- What You're Up Against - Vault: Blog | Management | Scoop.it

There's a serous disconnect between companies and potential employees in the United States—one that may be holding our entire economy back. And, contrary to the conventional wisdom, it's a problem that has been caused—and can only be cured by—companies. So says Peter Cappelli in his 2012 book Why Good People Can't Get Jobs. 

 

In Cappelli's view of the state of the modern employment landscape, there are several issues preventing companies from finding the talent they need—and none of them are related to the conventional cries from businesses and the media about a lack of talent in the pool, or the failure of the American education system to turn out people with appropriate skills.

Jacob Maddox's comment, May 11, 2013 10:35 PM
Cappelli's view is right on. The HR systems of most US companies, which could be also said of global international businesses is riding the fast train to failure. Computers will not allow a fantastic potential employee to get in front of the decision makers of the position, if their resume does not match the computers screening process. In my opinion we need to get back to old fashioned screening of meeting either in person or through live web session to analyze and determine the capacity and skill sets that matter to the company.
