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.

Often, associates are afraid to step out of their comfort zone, and they remain in a static position out of fear of the unknown. Unfortunately, an opportunity may be passed by due to lack of self-confidence and fear of potential failure.
