Today's #HBRogue  at 1pmEDT is on "Strategic Planning." The post, questions, and moderation were completed by +Jake Willis. Hope you will join us!

If your professional experience is anything like mine, you probably find yourself spending more time on daily issues than you would like. And this pattern probably prevents you from doing the long-term planning that would make your job easier in the future.
Organizations often experience this potentially crippling dynamic as well. With so many people focused on putting out the “fires” of the day, it can be difficult to dedicate the time and resources necessary to plan for the long-term and develop strategic direction for the organization. Unfortunately, without a winning strategic plan to guide it, any organization is likely to flounder in the wake of quickly shifting priorities. http://www.walsworth.com/blog/key-components-winning-strategic-plan

 
Simply put, strategic planning for an organization determines; where it is going, how it will get there, and when its goals are reached. Unlike business plans, which focus on a particular product, service, or program, strategic planning focuses on the entire organization. http://ncjp.org/saa-deskbook/elements-of-strategic-planning#sthash.x9UgVr1m.dpuf

You've encountered an obstacle. Time to decide. Are you staying put, going around, over, or through?

Today's #HBRogue  chat on Twitter at 1pmEDT is on "Listening" The post and moderation today are from +Jake Willis Hope you'll join us!

Listening is one of the most important skills one can have.  How well you listen will have an impact on your personal and professional relationships, and how well you do your job.  When we listen we can gather information, we can learn, and/or we can listen to understand.
“Listening involves hearing the speaker’s words, understanding the message and its importance to the speaker, and communicating that understanding to the speaker. The apparent problem is, of all the communication skills, listening is the earliest learned and the most frequently used, yet it seems to be the least mastered.” http://coachcampus.com/coach-portfolios/research-papers/claudia-meza-bellota-active-listening-an-essential-skill-for-coaching/


According to research we remember between 25% and 50% of what we hear.  That means when we are listening to our spouse, our friends, our boss, or our customers we are missing between 50% and 75% of what they are saying.  SEVENTY-FIVE PERCENT of what someone says?  For every minute we are only listening, we only hear between 15 and 30 seconds.  Think of your favorite song; how bad would it be if 50% or 75% of it was missing.
Hopefully, you were hearing during the most important parts of what your spouse was saying; and if you were not …

#HBRogue Q1: What does it mean to really listen?
#HBRogue Q2: How can you reinforce listening with nonverbal communication?
#HBRogue Q3: How do we encourage face-to-face communications?
#HBRogue Q4: What are some ways you can draw people out?
#HBRogue Q5: What are some barriers to listening in other countries?

Saw this post in +Hoda A Kamel 's stream today. There are many ways to think about diversity. If you're working on a company strategy, getting the diverse views of people in the company & customers can be a real eye opener. We've seen that as we're exposed to different ways of thinking about things gives us greater depth in how we create things. Has diversity worked for your creativity?
 
I was doing some research on #Innovation and found this article on how #diversity encourages creativity. Diversity here refers to the broader sense of #inclusivity of people from diverse backgrounds, genders, political ideologies, ethnic background, etc. The power of #teamwork leads to more creativity and innovation with a more diverse group.
Being around people who are different from us makes us more creative, more diligent and harder-working

You may not think about it this way; but, you can choose your attitude. What attitude will you choose?

Yes, we know it's not until tomorrow; but, we just couldn't wait! Happy Spring! Tomorrow is also a Supermoon & a full solar eclipse!

You may have noticed that we are experimenting in a variety of different styles. This style is from multiple "How to Draw" series for children. We're having fun bringing in different types of drawing styles.
