Leader and Social Media

Most of your employees are familiar with at least one social media site, whether that’s Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, LinkedIn, or another. Understanding how to use these platforms to build relationships with new and prospective customers—and even colleagues—is essential these days.

Social media is more than a collaboration and marketing tool; it also can be a tool to develop leaders.

INDUSTRY INSIGHT: STRATEGIC ONBOARDING—HELP NEW HIRES BELONG AND DELIVER RESULTS

When new hires choose your company as “the one,” it’s a big deal for them and you. And it’s personal. There’s nothing they want more than to belong — to fit in, understand their role, learn the ropes, and add value to the organization right away.

Because it’s personal, one-size onboarding isn’t going to work. Organizations should look at the new hire onboarding process as a complete experience. In fact, onboarding should begin from the moment the candidate says, “Yes.” That means personalizing the offer letter and pre-boarding experience and creating more than a task checklist about workspaces, computers, and paperwork. Strategic onboarding rapidly engages enthusiastic new hires into the life of the organization and keeps them continuously engaged with every career move or transition.

Why is it so important to get onboarding right?

Are You Contributing to Employee Depression?

Hyper-stressful, competitive workplaces may be penny wise and pound foolish. You might—possibly—achieve short-term financial gains, but at the long-term expense of employee mental health and an inability to retain your workforce.

Social Leadership Requires Emotional Intelligence More Than Ever!

In a world of technology, social media, and virtual relationships, the need to recognize and manage our own emotions, and connect to and influence the emotions of others has become more important than ever in order to bring people together, collaborate more effectively, and drive innovation.

The New Office I’m Looking Forward to—Maybe

Open-plan office spaces are billed as greatly loved by creative types, but is that true? Even if it’s tiny, there’s something psychologically helpful about a cubicle that’s yours alone, and comes with three walls shielding you from sight.

Case Study: Training that Drives Exceptional Results

Formal training planned and managed from a corporate office or administrative headquarters is valuable, but should consume no more than one-third of the available training time. Give lower-level managers and supervisors the time and resources to conduct training specific to their people and their team’s particular roles in the overall organizational mission.
