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...

Gaming Mindfulness

  In case you’re not familiar with the term, gamification is the process of using gaming elements like scoring, competition, play, and rewards to encourage action. It works particularly well with problem-solving where badges or scores indicate competency. Gamification is certainly not a new way to engage us and create good learning habits. In fact, a Russian scientist named Dmitri Mendeleev may have been the first to use gamification as a learning tool in the 19th century. An avid card player, ...

Living With Resilience – a Webinar

Stress is part of our modern lives, every single day. Some days just getting out of bed can be a real challenge. Living our lives with resilience can seem pretty far away. Whether it’s a change at work or at home, caring for a loved one, the news around the world, a temporary setback or a major life change, we can all be overwhelmed and not see the way to bounce back.

Marketers are freaking out about Facebook

By now you’ve probably heard the recent announcement from Mark Zuckerberg about engagement on Facebook. It’s a bit long, but here are some highlights from his post: “…recently we’ve gotten feedback from our community that public content — posts from businesses, brands and media — is crowding out the personal moments that lead us to connect more with each other.” “Since there’s more public content than posts from your friends and family, the balance of what’s in News Feed has shifted away from t...

Facebook Headache #6? We have a cure.

Have you been having issues editing link previews, titles or descriptions when you create a link post on Facebook? Or maybe you chose not to add Open Graph tags to your website because you didn’t want to deal with managing that extra code and update the markup all the time? I feel you. But your struggle may soon be over. Facebook stopped allowing users to customize these elements when you post on your page a while ago. They likely did this because fake news and scammer sites were adding images a...

Hacking isn’t something new to Twitter, but it’s generally been easy to get your account back through Twitter tech support, though not always quickly. For most accounts it’s not much more than embarrassing and annoying. For brands, of course, it can be a bigger deal. HBO was recently hacked, and the hackers threatened to release scripts from popular shows like Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, Vinyl and others. They also posted tweets like  “let’s make #HBOHacked trending!” on the HBO account. So...

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...
