Compassion in the Workplace- Immanual Joseph on #MindfulSocial

This week I’m talking with Immanual Joseph, PhD, about compassion. In the workplace, at home, for others and for ourselves. On the podcast Immanual said: “Compassion is fierce. In the workplace it involves standing up to popular opinion, Standing up to your co-workers and friends to do the right thing. It’s also being vulnerable, Compassion is the opposite of weakness. Compassion is courage with wisdom.” I couldn’t agree more! Listen to the podcast and add your own insights in the comments...

On the ROI of #compassion in the workplace. #MindfulSocial with Lisa Murfield

Time for a mind-shift?

Change can be hard. Often it’s harder when we make a shift from something we are comfortable and successful at. The longer we have done something, the more impetus we need to get out of our rut and make change happen. I’ve been known as a digital marketer for well over 20 years. Social media is an amazing marketing channel and I love the challenge and constant learning curve. I’ve often coached people in how to take a mindful approach to how they market and run their businesses. Not so many have...

Working with difficult people

We all have difficult people to deal with at one time or another. At home, at work, at the grocery store. People have bad days. We have bad days. And that, right there is the thing. At the end of the day, we are all just people, trying to do the best we can from our own level of consciousness. Those of us who feel mindfulness is important can still have an unconscious moment. When we blurt out something we didn’t mean to, or we simply ignore the signals we are getting from others about their fee...

My New Year Gift to You- 30 Days of Mindfulness

The mindfulness training I’ve engaged in over the last few years has significantly changed my life. I’m less reactive in difficult situations, adapt to change more quickly, actually get more done because I’m more able to focus, and my friends tell me I seem both happier and calmer.  Mindfulness practice has enriched my life, personally and in business. Looking back on the many, many times I tried to develop a practice I was overwhelmed by the options and frustrated with the lack of tangible ben...

Working with Empathy

While it’s general policy to train your team in the technical elements of their job, you may be leaving out a crucial component; empathy. You probably already know empathy is not something that comes naturally to everyone, yet this skill is essential to a modern, conscious business. Without empathy skills, conflicts can flare up from simple misunderstandings. Lack of empathy can lead to isolation and alienation, divisiveness within a team, highlight diversity issues and cause a brand to make cat...

Hating on Social Media – #NOTOK

Recent activities in Charlottesville and Seattle have been widely reported in the media and particularly on social media. What I have read and heard the last few days sickens me, and I agree with many that it is important,–no, vital–that we stand up and say in a clear voice, “Hate is not OK!”. Not OK in our communities, on our streets, and not OK on social media. In order to say that, we have to look into our own hearts too. Are we guilty of helping this hate storm grow? Hate reflected back on ...

Social Media Listening – It’s About Emotions

Let’s face it, most of us make purchase decisions emotionally, rather than logically. But much of the research we do when marketing products and services is focused on big data, filtered and sifted, often to get the results we are looking for rather than to divine what the customer wants. For decades, brands have focused on selling the product on hand rather than identifying and filling the needs of the consumer first.  We see an opportunity and attempt to fill it, often in our own little vacuum...

Marketers, what’s your story?

As marketers, we often have an idea of who we believe our market to be, what they want, and what kind of messaging will work for them. But are we really just talking to ourselves? We can be too close to the product and too specific about details our audience doesn’t understand. Maybe we know […]
