5 Things Great Bosses Never Do I recently described what remarkable bosses do. A number of people emailed and asked, "That's a great list, but flip it around: What things should I not do?" Glad you asked. As a leader what you don't do can sometimes make as much or even more impact than what you do. Here are five things remarkable bosses never do: Say, "I've been meaning to apologize for a while..." You should never need to apologize for not having apologized sooner. When you mess up, 'fess up. If love means never having to say you're sorry, leadership means always having to say you're sorry. Deliver annual performance reviews. Annual or semi-annual performance appraisals are largely a waste of time. Years ago my review was late so I mentioned it to my boss. He was right.

Content Curation: definition and generation. A lot has been already talked about Content Curation, meant as the capacity of filtering and adding value to the content we receive and are exposed to everyday from all the online sources (Search and Social). Content Curation is certainly more necessary than ever, a critical task in the business environment, not only in Marketing, Communications or Advertising, but it is especially so in areas such as Product, Innovation, Customer Service or Human Resources. Its impact goes far beyond the content we may generate. Really it is a state of mind affecting the monitoring, research, investigation and the way we listen to people and are able to discern what affects us what not. But what could be a definition of Content Curator? A content curator is a critical knowledge broker who seeks, collects and shares on a continuous base the most relevant content in her area of expertise. Initially, the term is attributed to Rohit Bhargava, who developed a Content Curation Manifesto in which he states:

Retoriksidan The One Skill All Leaders Should Work On - Scott Edinger by Scott Edinger | 11:30 AM March 29, 2012 If I had to pick one skill for the majority of leaders I work with to improve, it would be assertiveness. Not because being assertive is such a wonderful trait in and of itself. Rather, because of its power to magnify so many other leadership strengths. Assertiveness gets a bad rap when people equate it with being pushy and annoying. But that shouldn’t stop you from learning to apply it productively (that is — in service to your strengths). Here are some specific ways in which assertiveness complements a wide range of the critical leadership skills you may already have: • Creating a culture of innovation: A couple of years ago I conducted a study to determine the characteristics of the most innovative leaders in one of the largest companies in the world. • Being customer focused: We typically think of service or business development professionals as being good at, and focused on, building relationships.

Content Curation Primer Photo by Stuck in Customs What is Content Curation? Content curation is the process of sorting through the vast amounts of content on the web and presenting it in a meaningful and organized way around a specific theme. The work involves sifting, sorting, arranging, and publishing information. A content curator cherry picks the best content that is important and relevant to share with their community. Content curation is not about collecting links or being an information pack rat, it is more about putting them into a context with organization, annotation, and presentation. People and organizations are now making and sharing media and content all over the social web. Content Curation Provides Value from the Inside Out What does that mean for nonprofits and the people who work for them? For some staff members, content curation can be professional of learning.

tala Jag planerar för nästa arbetsområde som är retorik, dvs konsten att tala övetygande, samt etos, patos och logos som är ett tals olika delar. Vi ska alltså analysera talen samt skriva egna.

Become a Content Curation King Sean Carton | August 29, 2011 | 18 Comments inShare79 Nine ways to make curation work for your brand. "Curation" is a buzzword (even if it isn't technically a word…unless you count the 14th century French definition meaning "to cure") that's smokin' up the interwebs these days. Curation has now come to mean the act of sorting through the vast amounts of content on the web and presenting it in a coherent way, organized around a specific topic(s). If you're a web veteran, you're probably wondering how this is any different than what people have been doing online for years. So what's the big deal about curation? NYU Professor Clay Shirky provides one of the best explanations of the role of curation in today's web in a Fast Company article from a year ago: "Curation comes up when search stops working…[and] when people realize that it isn't just about information seeking, it's also about synchronizing a community."
