The New Business As Usual by Euan Semple

This recorded webcast is part of the 2012 C7group Business Thought Leadership Series: Euan Semple leads a presentation about driving business, leveraging social media and the culture and workflow changes that are required. Watch Euan’s presentation below or read more about his background:

Euan Semple is one of the few people in the world who can turn the complex world of social networking into something we can all understand. And, at the same time, learn how to get the most from it. Ten years ago, while working in a senior position at the BBC, Semple was one of the first to introduce what have since become known as social media tools into a large, successful organization. He has subsequently had five years of unparalleled experience working with organizations such as Nokia, The World Bank and NATO He is a one-man digital upgrade option for us all to download. This world is changing fast, but he makes sense of it because he understands that the core basics remain the same: community, learning, interaction. He is a master story-teller who offers a host of practical tales about how this new world can work for real people in the real world.

Culture: Your Organization’s DNA and How It Drives Everything Else

Organizations must transform their culture in order to become collaborative social businesses.  It’s no longer a debate that culture and values are the winning components of the business of tomorrow.  Technology is leading us in terms of what we must do with our workflow and behavior but it is not the central component. Technology tool selection happens after a proper strategy and roadmap are formed or the road to change and adoption are difficult or doomed.   Further, public image and brand value are now at the mercy of your organization’s character, responsibility and “humanness.”

Papa John’s Pizza recently experienced the brand damage that can be caused by one single tweet. That tweet of a photographed receipt containing an ethnic slur spread to millions of people in days. The digital social web has connected us. Social media marketing and digital PR efforts pale next to today’s real-time magnification of behavior no matter where or when it takes place.

Marissa Levin, Founder and CEO of Information Experts, Inc., and author of the recently released “My Company ROCKS!” Eight Secrets to a Growth-Driven Culture That Keeps Employees Happy & Engaged,” identified eight cultural strategies that her book expands upon:

  1. Commitment to a Non-Toxic Environment
  2. Commitment to Fun
  3. Safety Outside the Comfort Zone
  4. Employee Input
  5. Join for one position, stay for another
  6. Continuous Learning
  7. Responsible Flexibility and Work-Life Integration
  8. Employee Empowerment & Accountability
Culture is how an organization makes sense of the world, a set of assumptions internalized by all its members. Marissa Levin, with seventeen years of experience growing a successful business, has an outline worth sharing and a valuable conversation that will inspire you.  You are welcome to join her for an online webcast with the same title as this blog post, “Culture: Your Organization’s DNA and How It Drives Everything Else,” on Tuesday, March 13, 2012.

What is Social Learning?

Social learning, or Learning 2.0, is a general name given to multiple collaborative online tools for sharing knowledge, building relationships, and interacting with content and with other members of the online community. These tools allow learners to learn independently, more quickly, and more efficiently, and to be more productive and effective as a result. Most of the content in these systems is user generated and user rated for interest, relevance, and helpfulness. The tools most commonly used by organizations for social learning purposes are wikis and social networking tools such as discussion boards, blogs, video uploading platforms, and podcasting. (more…)

Become A Business Change Agent: Thought Leadership Webcast Series

Image: hand deposits coin in piggy bank on grass outside with cloud backgroundSocial business requires change in more than your marketing department, are you ready?

There is a fundamental change in how we do business. Driven by the networked communication tools flourishing on the web, tools like YouTube, Facebook and LinkedIn, how we communicate with those who benefit from our services and how we organize ourselves productively are changing.

Being aware of these technologies is a very different thing from understanding them, actually using them, and knowing how to get the best out of them. This is before we even begin to touch on the subject of how to use them in a business context and how to “manage them”.

There is a genie that has been let out of the bottle and, just as with the invent of the wheel, the printing press or eight-Printing Press transition to social technology and social business workflow and culturetrack tape, there is little doubt that things will ever be the same again.

So given that this change is happening, and is almost certainly already beginning to happen inside and around your organization, what are you going to do about it? Are you going to revert to “business as usual” and continue to run your business in a conventional command and control way and talk to those you serve as passive consumers? Or are you going to embrace this new networked world, learn the ropes, and get ahead of your competition by getting those conversations with your staff and your customers started as soon as you can?

C7group is proud to present the 2012 Business Thought Leadership Webcast Series featuring foremost experts with leading perspectives about the social tools, technology and changing workflow in business today.
