Workshifting: it's a movement that's gaining a lot of momentum and inspiring an equal amount of discussion. 

Seen as a big part of the #FutureofWork, workshifting was the subject of a recent summit held in Ottawa and led by municipal and business leaders like Mayor Jim Watson.

The WORKshift Ottawa: #FutureofWork Summit hosted delegates from both the public and private sectors. They gathered to discuss WORKshift as a strategy for reducing costs, improving employee productivity, retention and morale, boosting business resiliency, and decreasing an organization’s overall environmental footprint: http://sqz.co/No32CtT

As the work world changes and adapts to shifting attitudes and technology, the people behind [+WORKshift Canada] offer a vision and a dedication to promoting and accelerating the adoption of flexible work, letting companies across the country know the benefits for employees and employers.

Mobile technology, in its various forms, has come a long way from the days of stringing together two tin cans. 

In just a few short short decades, mobile has gone from being a costly, hard to come by technology to an everyday, ubiquitous thing that we take for granted — and occassionally drop in toilets. What we shouldn't take for granted is the power small business owners can harness from intelligent use of mobile in areas like sales and marketing. 

From the Motorola Dynatac (yep, that's Zack Morris' trusty brick of a mobile phone) to the sleek new smartphones that easily slide into our pockets today, this infographic takes a look back at the history of mobile and its impact on businesses: http://sqz.co/Ja29WcT

Of course your business wants to attract new customers — so how can you use mobile to make that happen?

GoToMeeting spoke to entrepreneurs, innovators and experts to find out the best practices for using mobile to increase conversions.

The first step, says entrepreneurship guru +Rick Spence, is to make sure you've got your message mapped out — and that it's tailored to the audience you're aiming to reach. Next, you want to make sure that you take a "holistic" approach to mobile, says tech TV host +Mike Agerbo. That means making sure your message stays consistent across all platforms (social media vs. email, for example). 

You can't rely on just one tool to communicate with customers either, says +Marcus Daniels, CEO of VC-backed accelerator program Highline. Instead, take advantage of everything mobile has to offer.

Over the past year, GoToMeeting in Canada has travelled across the country to meet the most innovative startups and successful entrepreneurs. Canadian entrepreneurs are playing a role in the future of work and their vision is helping to shape the new economy.

Canadian Entrepreneurs Are Changing the Future of Work

“Entrepreneurs are usually very determined individuals and they’re usually people that don’t take ‘no’ for an answer,” says Kathy Smart of Live the Smart Way.

Mayor of Ottawa Jim Watson recently announced National Entrepreneurs' Day to celebrate Canadian entrepreneurs, startups and business owners. Ottawa will be the first Canadian city to mark National Entrepreneurs’ Day, which is will launch on November 19, 2015.

What does it take to make it as an entrepreneur? What are some of the biggest opportunities and what are the most common mistakes? GoToMeeting in Canada spoke to +Rick Spence, a National Post columnist and entrepreneurship expert to find out. http://sqz.co/Nn6f4FH

There’s a lot of opportunity out there for people who want to start a new business. In fact, according to Spence, there’s never a “bad time” to start something new. “The outlook is always favourable for entrepreneurs,” Spence says. “They see new connections that become opportunities.”

But just in case you take that declaration to mean that you should get started on that idea of yours, consider this: Spence warns that being an entrepreneur means being “prepared to work harder than ever before. You have to think about business 7 days a week.”

He also shared some valuable advice that those looking to start their own business should keep in mind:

- Stay innovative; stay curious. Ask, why are things done this way? What other solutions would work better?
- Find like-minded people to brainstorm with. What’s not working? How could we do it better?
- Always look for fast, easy, cheap ways to test your ideas, theories and solutions. Test, test, test.
- If you're a business owner, encourage staff innovation. Reward ideas. Give people resources to test theories.
- As Silicon Valley guru Steve Blank says, startups aren’t businesses — they're research labs testing new ideas.

What are the building blocks that make up a top-notch sales team? And once you've put that team together, how do you keep them motivated and performing to their highest potential?

Creating a world-class sales force is no small feat but these tips from +Velocify CEO Nick Hedges are an excellent start: http://sqz.co/s4EDq9c

A sales expert himself, Hedges recommends that leaders focus on celebrating competition and recognizing success wherever they find it. He also advises that managers set reasonable quotas while ensuring that the the team is running at full capacity. These ideas may seem to contradict one another but there is a balance to be found between overwhelming your salespeople with unrealistic goals and making sure they're doing everything they can to close deals. 

And one more thing: you don't ever want to put a cap on commissions. Why would you want to encourage your top performers to slow down and put their feet up? If they keep succeeding, keep rewarding them. Your bottom line will be rewarded in return.
