Are You Leveraging Big Data Effectively?
The data deluge has arrived, and the world is overflowing with new and potentially valuable information. Yet, we are at a crossroads. Organizations have access to big data that can transform their cultures for the better, but they don’t know what to do with it. Far too often, potentially insightful data is ignored out of fear, ego or pure disorganization. Data doesn’t lie and tends to reveal unpopular truths. Humans performing the analysis often pass over what they don’t want to see. Before we go further, let’s define big data. According to David McJannet, vice president of marketing for Hortonworks, in an article for Information Week, here’s a practical take: “Big data is about building new analytic applications based on new types of…

There’s a common thread among the highest-achieving scientists, artists, and novelists: They’re more open than the rest of us. Psychologists have determined that the single most consistent variable in creative achievement is a trait called openness to experience. In short, the more open you are to experience, the more likely you are to do great creative work in your career. One of the Big 5 personality traits — along with conscientiousness, agreeability, extroversion, and emotional stability — openness to experience speaks to how much or how little you get excited about new information. At a neurological level, canada goose pink jacket burlington on on sale has a lot to do with dopamine, the feel-good neurotransmitter. “The essence of the whole domain has to do with a particular kind of dopamine projection,” says…

Not even the best ideas can put you on the path to success if no one will listen to you. Speaker and author Julian Treasure gave a popular TED Talk last year that explained how anyone can speak effectively, whether in a conversation or in front of a crowd. How well you influence others is as much about you do say as what you don’t. Here are the bad habits you need to avoid if you want people to listen to you, which Treasure calls the “seven deadly sins of speaking”: 1. Gossiping Speaking badly of somebody else seems to have a chain reaction, Treasure says. If you engage in gossip, you can give yourself a bad reputation and inspire others to start gossiping…

Before Brian Williams was the Emmy-winning anchor and managing editor of NBC “Nightly News,” the 55-year-old struggled to even find a job after dropping out of college. Now earning a reported a $10 million annual salary, Williams went bankrupt in his early 20s after “a failed experiment in local news.” It wasn’t until a news director in Washington, D.C. took a chance on him that Williams resumed his on-air career years later. MediabistroTV spoke to Williams about his big break and success after failure.Growing up in New Jersey, “It was very clear all along that I had to work, I had to support myself. I was working a series of jobs and I had an epiphany [after dropping out of GWU] that I had to at least…

“Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win” ― Sun Tzu, The Art of War I was trapped behind my ambition. I knew the supreme importance of exercise and how it would benefit me so much, and yet I couldn’t do it consistently. I’d often think, “I can’t do my 30-minute workout today because [excuse]. I’ll do it tomorrow.” The benefits we gain from exercising are unreal. When you exercise, you improve your health, circulation, body, stress levels, moods, mental sharpness, willpower, libido, and more. Singling out any one of those makes exercise an exciting and worthwhile pursuit, but we get them all. Knowing The Benefits Isn’t Enough Why is it some people…

On several occasions, I’ve asked my son a question only to realize he’s glued to his smartphone screen and hasn’t heard a word I’ve said. It’s hard competing for a teen’s attention when his entire social circle can be access by a few touches on a screen. One of the struggles with work life balance today as a parent is making time for our kids when our kids want to make time for us. My guest blogger today is Jamie Goodman (no relation to me). Jamie’s parents got divorced when she was 2 and her brother was 7. The kids now live in St. Louis. Over the years, her father, Rick Goodman of Pembroke Pines, he has talked to his children…

Most people read your body language to decide whether you’re likeable, trustworthy, and competent, among other things, within one second of meeting you. “You may have heard that you only have a few seconds to make a first impression,” says Bernard Marr, an author and global enterprise performance expert, in a recent LinkedIn post. But the truth is, the other person’s brain has made up its mind (so to speak) about a you “within just milliseconds.” “Until we get to know someone,” Marr says, “our brain relies on snap judgments to try to categorize the person, predict what they will do, and anticipate how we should react.” One way to hack this split-second judgment is to be aware of your body language, he says. Whether you’re applying…

In order to make good decisions, we have to get information. Correction – we have to get good information. Sometimes, I’m amazed at the decisions people make without information. I’m not talking about ordering dinner without hearing the daily specials. People make decisions about their personal and professional lives without finding out all the good information they need. I’m not naive. There are times when we will never get all the info we want to make a decision. There are also times when we will have to make decisions without all the information, like in the case of an emergency. But plenty of situations allow us to step back, ask ourselves a few questions, and make sure we have all the information…

“The beginning is the most important part of the work.”—Plato When we speak, we have about 60 seconds to capture our audience’s attention, establish credibility, orient them to our topic, and motivate them to listen, says Darlene Price, president of Well Said, Inc., and author of “Well Said! Presentations and Conversations That Get Results.” If you waste those precious opening seconds with a joke, an agenda, an apology, housekeeping details, a string of thank-yous, or a rambling pointless paragraph littered with “ums” and “uhs,” your audience’s minds are likely to drift, and you may not get them back. “You, your message, and your audience deserve much more,” Price says. “You need to put the art in the start, the most important part of the work.” That’s…
