What Are We Thinking?

Posted by borellidesigns
on October 27, 2010

Recently in our Seminar:  Building Your “Personal” Brand we discussed the things you do everyday that feed your mind and make you who you are.  The goal was to:

1.    Make you aware that you feed your mind everyday . . . all day

2.    Demonstrate how much you control this input

3.     Get you to direct it in a positive and nurturing direction

A great place to begin is in how you talk to yourself everyday.  We talk to ourselves more in one day than anyone else.  Positive self-talk can change your attitude and, therefore, change the environment around you.  It can be the difference in how people react to you . . . the difference of drawing people to you or driving them away.

Here is a simple, yet very effective exercise to get started that you can do while you drive to work:

1.    What do you think about as you drive?

2.    What do you listen to?

3.     What feeds your mind as you drive?

Become aware, be present and in control of how you start your day.  After you have evaluated it, how can you improve it to create a more positive and nurturing environment to start your day?

Do it and let me know if you decide to change anything.  Your input is always welcomed.

Social Networking & The Workplace

Posted by borellidesigns

As promised in the previous blog post, today we will discuss the answers to the questions:

1. Why are 54% banning Social Media in the workplace?
2. Why are ONLY 54% banning Social Media in the workplace?

The list of reasons that follow have been assembled from various sources, direct conversations, and our own experiences here at TSI. Let’s Connect an e-book by Jan Vermeiren and Web Marketing by Stephanie Diamond are two sources that are very informative. So let’s get started.

1. Why are 54% banning Social Media at work?
    (Here are some of the reasons various sources provided.)
     A. Effect productivity, increase mistakes, and jeopardize security.
     B. Clogs the bandwidth other employees are using to conduct legitimate business.
     C. Feeds and leads to Social Media addiction (approximately 14% of users are addicted).
     D. Hackers are 10 times more successful on social networking sites.
     E. 5 million workdays lost per year (WOW!).

The list goes on, but you get the idea. So after reading this, the second question remains . . .

2. Why are only 54% banning Social Media at work?

     A. The #1 answer is moral. People view it as an attack to their freedom, and right or wrong, are offended or personally insulted.
     B. Leverage . . . the social network value of the employees and their relationships.
     C. Discover what is being said about their business . . . good or bad.
     D. Create communities, welcome participation, and appear more human than an impersonal business.

The choice is difficult. The rewards or failures nebulous. Everyone feels they have rights, but with these rights, remember, comes responsibilities and consequences. Personal responsibility on the one hand is great, but risky. Control and constricting policies on the other hand improve security but at what cost to moral, culture, and discovery of what is being said about your company on the internet.

The question is not should Social Media be happening during business hours,
but rather, who should have access, for what reasons
and what results are expected?

Social Media is a potential business tool for:
     Networking
     Research
     Public Relations
     Brand Defense
     Recruiting
     Instructions
     Selling
     Communications

Learning to live with it could prove to be a profitable and productive choice. All comments and opinions are welcomed and appreciated.
