12 emerging internal communications trends for 2015 - The Future of HR - Medium

"Internal communications as a profession is moving slowly. Maybe too slowly. Very often the internal communications people are more followers than leaders. More pleasers than challengers. More change watchers than change agents."

Hmmm.  While I do agree that internal communications is moving slowly professionally, I'm not too sure that I agree with all the comments about the role of internal communicators.  I'm seeing more internal communicators in power positions and taking on key roles in change management.  Maybe that varies based on industry or region?

Emoticons Strongly Influence How We Respond to Written Communication - Big Think (blog)

Emoticons Strongly Influence How We Respond to Written Communication - Big Think (blog) | Enlightened home buying and selling | Scoop.it
Because the tone of a conversation affects how we react, and because physical cues help set tone, emoticons are much more than cute or trite. 
ZenExchange's insight:

Emoticons, initially the preserve of teens-texting, are going mainstream.

 

As communication becomes increasingly device based, short form and fast turnaround, the context of communicators' intent is often missing or, much worse, misconstrued.  

 

This study points out that Emoticons, whilst childlike and cutsy, play a critical role in today's world as an efficient and effective way of people signalling how they're feeling when working remotely. 

 

On reflection, considering that 90% of communication is visual, it seems off that it's taken this long to catch up in the business world.

 

And considering dogs have heckles; cats, fur and fangs and baboons the colour of their bum cheeks - I think I'll happily take lurid coloured icons.

When you don't follow this rule, you may gain in the immediate term but in the end, you'll always get bitten. Hard.

Joseph Preston's curator insight, November 15, 2014 8:21 AM

If the market is showing an opportunity for home buyers to invest on an ideal home/property now, how many potential buyers are out there who would grab it? And then there's the question of the sellers/owners' willingness to give in to how much their prospective buyers would offer to purchase the property. The market only shows us an ideal perspective on it, and yet again, everything still depends on how much the buyer will offer and how low the sellers are willing to accept. Is it enough that we are given an idea how the UK Housing Market goes from time to time? I reckon we need to still do our homework in terms of finding an ideal property to buy in a location where it's reported to have a sudden decrease in price. The pointers are helpful though. Just remember that number 1 needs a lot of careful thinking and planning. And shopping around. Ask for details and look for the best deals. Buying a home is a rather massive financial commitment.

One day recently I worked out of, quite possibly, the best office I have ever been in. Granted, this is not a high bar for a cubicle drone like me. Still, the design touches were lovely: It was a glass ...
