Be Willing to be Fired - Now

It is amazing the change you can make when you act is if you are willing to be fired.
Just like you, I was fed up with politics.  I was in a job I loved that was being made much too difficult by people playing games.I wanted to do a great job.  Was that too much to ask? Let’s find opportunities.  Help me help you be awesome. Let’s create great things together.  These were my …

Collaborative vs. Controlling Organizations with +Mark Babbitt 

Another excellent discussion with Mark Babbitt.

This is one of the VINJONES Podcasts on Employee Engagement found at http://www.vinjones.com/vinjones-podcasts/

Mark Babbitt blames the Millennial generation for stirring up the workplace - and thanks them for it. He discusses what a collaborative workplace acts like, how we hire differently, and why we need to focus more on creating a human workplace than trying to control it.  Then, he says, you need to unlearn everything you have learned, and start fresh.  Find out why...

Mark is the president of Switch and Shift (http://switchandshift.com/), the CEO of YouTern and the author of "A World Gone Social." (http://www.amazon.com/World-Gone-Social-Companies-Survive/dp/081443326X)

10 Millennial Mindsets That Aren't New (but everyone acts as if they are).

I'm a bit tired of hearing about new the Millennial mindset and how they want to work differently.  Haven't we all?  

But, finally, a group breaks through!  It's about time...

"Hack Yourself" with the ever wise +Luis Suarez.  

For you to love your work, you need to hack yourself.  Hack the way you do work, your behaviors, your mindset, and why you do your work.  You need to find your purpose and challenge the status quo.

For us to be successful, these are only some of the things Luis Suarez challenges us to do.  His wisdom is valuable for everyone to hear, to be reminded of, and to heed and act upon.

Sometimes we need to throw in a wrench to see if an org is awake. Their reaction will speak volumes of where they are.

I have never noticed, but there is emotion in a watch. How can it be designed to play on that?

Social Business Failure #2: Rely on Stats
vinjones.com

To show ROI we are forced to give stats – yet the stats don't move to action and only tell part of the story.

We slept at a different BW last night and it was decent, nicer than this one and $60 cheaper. Not sure why this one is more expensive besides different town. Not too impressed. For $15 less (times two rooms) we have stayed at Little America (which is close). Sure, no breakfast was included, but the rooms and hotel overall were MUCH nicer. In addition, the internet is VERY slow here. I'm trying to work right now and am having a very difficult time doing it. Rooms are cramped, but fine and clean for a quick stay.

I'm from out of town and Expercom was recommended. Friendly, quick and honest, they fixed my MPB. I thought two things were wrong, and they said that one issues was creating the other and all they had to fix was the first. Wish we had the same people/store in my home town.

The prices here for the food are VERY reasonable. We love coming here. Good food (especially the croissants with the honey glaze - they are to die for), good atmosphere, and I can't complain - except... It is so popular that there is usually a long wait to get in. Come no later than 5pm if you want to get in any time soon. Service is good. We did have an incident one time, but the manager more than made up for it. They are very generous here.
