Interesting approach by Innoleaps: usiuseng lean methodologies not just to bring new offerings but also to motivate people. "With the challenges that are facing large corporates in attracting and retaining top talent, particularly amongst younger people, we at InnoLeaps think that introducing lean tools and methodologies to at least part of your organization will help make your company wildly attractive to those very people who will help the company stay competitive in the future." https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/5-ways-working-lean-motivates-employees-benefits-lauren-valbert

"Give back your heart to itself, to the stranger who has loved you all your life...Sit. Feast on your life."

-----
LOVE AFTER LOVE

The time will come
when, with elation,
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror,
and each will smile at the other’s welcome,
and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.

Business owners, here's the inconvenient truth we all face: our audience doesn't give a damn about our sales pitch. In today's hyper-social and collaborative world, people won't care about what we know until they know how much we care. So how do we go about creating content that's not just marketable but truly matters to our target audience? Join us on July 18 (Saturday) in Amsterdam and learn about the 5-step process I use to help businesses jumpstart the development of content that directly supports business objectives, while also creating real value for their target audience.

Time: 14:0-17:00

#Media Literacy 101: #Astroturfing 
"...is the attempt to create an impression of widespread grassroots support for a policy, individual, or product, where little such support exists. Multiple online identities and fake pressure groups are used to mislead the public into believing that the position of the astroturfer is the commonly held view."
http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2012/feb/08/what-is-astroturfing

"Astroturfing is the practice of masking the sponsors of a message or organization (e.g., political, advertising, religious or public relations) to make it appear as though it originates from and is supported by grassroots participant(s). It is a practice intended to give the statements or organizations more credibility by withholding information about the source's financial connection. The term astroturfing is a derivation of AstroTurf, a brand of synthetic carpeting designed to look like natural grass, a play on the word "grassroots." ...
Some studies suggest astroturfing can alter public viewpoints and create enough doubt to inhibit action.

Blast from the past. Still valid imho.
The social upheaval that exploded in Tunisia and Egypt is spreading across the Arab World. At the time of this writing, dissent is snowballing in Libya, Bahrain and Iran. In the wake of these extraordinary events, a myriad of discussions on the role the Internet and the social web has emerged. Cyber-utopians are praising Twitter … Continue reading Digital and social activism: no small change →

Innovation and creativity thrive in vulnerability. Entrepreneurship is in many ways about living with vulnerability and calling it friend. That while we may fail, we also dare greatly.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."  - Theodore Roosevelt

"We are never as kind as we want to be, but nothing outrages us more than people being unkind to us. There is nothing we feel more consistently deprived of than kindness; the unkindness of others has become our contemporary complaint. Kindness consistently preoccupies us, and yet most of us are unable to live a life guided by it."
Kindness is considered more a weakness than a measure of strength and success in the modern world. But you see, if there is too much of this 'invulnerability', then there is too much vulnerability needing to be nurtured. To be kind to oneself, to others, in work and business...to have kindness as a value proposition and a brand -- why not?
"Before you know what kindness really is
you must lose things, feel the future dissolve in a moment
like salt in a weakened broth.
What you held in your hand,
what you counted and carefully saved,
all this must go so you know
how desolate the landscape can be
between the regions of kindness." - Naomi Shihab Nye
I know. I know and so I take. And so I give.

Kindness in thought, word and deed is best done every single moment of each day. It is the heart of one's mindful and considerate brief passage in this life.

"In 2013, Ahmad, now 25, launched a phone app to encourage private companies and event planners to donate extra food. Feeding Forward is a not-for-profit service that allows users to arrange—on-demand— for Feeding Forward drivers to pick up leftover food and deliver it directly to areas and people that need it most. In San Francisco, the app has helped feed over 575,000 homeless people by redistributing nearly 690,000 pounds of excess food."

In a world filled with greed, hate, and negativity, there is still hope for generosity, compassion, and a brighter future.

The next time we tweet a fact in defense of our truth and feel smug about our own smartness, think about @Factbot -- a machine that lies -- and reconsider.

I help your brand evolve from Content Maker to Content Crusader -- to create content not because it’s marketable, but because it matters.
Introduction
I provide solutions in the overlapping fields of content, social, and business analysis.
  • I help your brand evolve from Content Maker to Content Crusader -- to create content not because it’s marketable, but because it matters. Empowering your target audience with compelling content that makes them smarter, transforms you into an authority in their eyes. My goal is to help you conquer content mediocrity and attract your ideal audience -- to nurture meaningful relationships with your audience by optimising content for discovery and conversion. Specifically, I'll develop and harmonise three essential elements of your social and online marketing: customer personas, relevant content offering, and touchpoints for engagement and conversion.
  • I’ll also help your brand become social by design: Social is not what you do -- it’s what you are. For that to happen, we need strategy, planning, and courage. I won’t stop at at making you better in social media -- I’ll help you become a better business because of it.
  • My passion for social and content is anchored by my solid experience in business analysis and requirements management. This enables me to apply an integrated approach to your projects and provide holistic solutions: you'll always get that extra value you deserve.
The work I’ve done in the Netherlands is a blend of both business and project-level functions. I can fulfil different roles in different phases of an online project. I can integrate strategic planning with operational execution.

In the Philippines, I taught political science, humanities, politics of gender and art appreciation, and gave trainings on community radio broadcasting and journalism. I was a copywriter for TV, radio and print, and was active in advocacy campaigns.

I blog on social media, politics, activism, education, and the Philippines. I also plan to revive my diabetes blog (Diabetic Hobbit). I'm a Filipino living in the Netherlands with my Dutch husband whom I met in the Two Towers MUD, and our just-turned-a-toddler Apprentice Wizard-Ninja-Capsuleer. I refer to myself occasionally as delunna and hobbit ;-p
