    Look closer at LinkedIn survey results and there’s more evidence that too many businesses are simply paying lip service to sales and marketing alignment: only half have mapped out their buyers’ journey – and only just under a quarter are consistently working together through all stages of it.

    Is your business just talking the talk on sales and marketing alignment?

    The destructiveness of the tweet is dependent on the reach of the user. You can have a following of 200, but if your position in life is someone who is 'important,' your tweets could mean more than say, if I did.

    On the other hand, I with just over 400 followers could tweet something (and I have recently), and I get nothing. Not only do I not have much of a network to connect with, but I'm honestly not that important to anyone.

    Depending on WHO produces the tweet- eg, Twitter Verified, A Person posts a breaking news story, A person with a large following, the short answer is YES. One tweet can go viral. Say a verified tweet goes out that we aren't going to pay our National Debt as another example... Now that would be highly unlikely that that tweet would go out on twitter before the news reports it but that would cause our Market to drop quite fast if the news was true. There are many tweets that could wreak havoc and have. If a President tweets information to the Country (which other countries see) before the news grabs it and that tweet is RE: National Security (one of the worst case scenarios) - again, that's problematic to put it politely. Tweets can be destructive.

    I read or heard a few years ago about our "quick memory". The theory went that we have a section of our brain that stores approximately 10 seconds of our current senses. Senses are kicked out as new ones come in. The premise was that in order to get things from the ten second section to long term memory we had to do something to make it transfer. Write it down or say it out loud or some form of recognition beyond just sensing the information.

    I would think the rule of threes allows for this to transfer from this ten second memory chip onto the hard drive easier. A rhyme if you will.

    Good stuff.

    #49 I thank you dear @Jeet Sarkar for your mind-challenging questions. As I said before in a response to a comment here, sometimes having many choices may be confusing to the mind. The birds utilize fixed facts to take fixed directions such as the position of the sun and the magnetism of the earth and this way they may use simple rules in this complex world. We need sometimes to have fixed rules to follow to limit down our options and find a simple direction to follow.
    We may also recall that the magnetized beaks, for example, are not permanent magnets; in fact hey are only magnetized under certain conditions so that the molecules within may be magnetized under certain conditions. How about a similar thinking? We are not magnetized, but creative enough to learn from nature.

    Followed by sounds and then smell.

    I say smell as the third because if you observe the 24 HR cycle, rarely do both nostrils operate simultaneously in a lifestyle where we are usually seated in AC environment.

    But eyes and ears usually operate together.

    If we equate with the human body, why do we assume sight as one input, why not assume two parralelly functioning eyes...I compare it with operational and accounting double entry...In strategy we look at accounts but often are lazy to view operational entries simultaneously... The linkages behind the numbers.

    Similarly two ears not exclusive in inputs but outputs...Factual and hearsay...Outputs being same..Outlook

    2 nostrils, for risk and opportunity simultaneously...One is marketing dept and one is planning dept...Don't isolate...Structure and simplify functioning 8 hrs in office is an extremely long time..These things can be done in under 20 mins with practice.

    And yes, practice to sharpen the senses.
    Devesh Bhatt
    17/01/2017 #50 Devesh Bhatt
    Talking about paradoxes

    Evaluating inputs of our senses is done by the brain. This evaluation is not within the realm of our conscious rationality, but serves as an input.

    Our body evolves as per experience, senses improve with higher variations in the environment, and rationality improves with sensory inputs and practicing rationality.

    So the best method of sharpening senses is through varied experience, which can be natural or experimental as prescribed by rationality.

    The very discussion of senses tilts our evaluation towards the rational side and we are conditioned to assume rationality and sensory inputs as exclusive and a matter of choice and not complimentary.

    Hence the first step as reflected in your posts ..Is rational acceptance of our senses, The second step hence must be experience of the senses, effective modules for sharpening our senses...The easiest being sight

    Evolution is the key by virtue of which fins of a fish are able to modified into the wings of a bird, this evolution makes the aves group very special. They have some outstanding abilities. The comparison and the metaphors you used are as usual beauty of your post. But I wonder if the human eyes and nose , two critical sense organs, are magnetized then what will happen about viewing and sensing the the decisions and strategy? How human beings will reciprocate it?because magnet can only work with the limited number of metals. An intriguing post by the way sir @Ali Anani I must say! enjoy reading .

    #46 This is the irony @Alan Culler- we are still not sure of how birds do it. How birds sense their direction? As I mentioned in the buzz- nearly all the methods you summarized in your thoughtful talk. I myself believe like molecules send messages in our bodies, there are also molecules in birds that make them aware of direction. How? I am still trying to understand. The journey is a long one my friend.

    In the US a few months ago we were treated to the annual migration of the Canada Geese - a great 'V' of birds in the sky flying South. It is tempting to thing that they all follow a leader at the point of the 'V'. On further observation, one sees that the point position is rotational -the leader drops back to the position on one of the wings of the 'V."

    The ornithological hypothesis is that the point position encounters greater wind resistance and is therefore very tiring -therefore the rotation. But how do the geese all know the direction?

    Is it visual based upon landmarks?

    Is it sound based -communicated by that incessant honkink as they fly overhead -or when the gaggle mills about chaotically on the ground?

    Or does the magnetism of the poles and lines of longitude and latitude speak to them all?

    Or is it memory -individual and species memory that directs them?

    Or all of these things?

    And how would we as humans learn from this -seeing -feeling- connecting- talking -joining and moving together.

    Thank you, Ali -I always enjoy the mental adventures you lead.

    As usual, Ali Anani a beautiful post tapestry with so many threads:
    Personal purpose, inner direction and vision direction

    Strategy -understanding direction and over-coming the "conflicts and frictions" that will get in the way of execution.

    The how of purpose or vision detection -Magnetic perceptions -. or sense driven -sight and sound -more concrete -but just as hard to understand.

    And the collective behavior of the flock -all moving in the same direction.

    I'm thinking a lot about that -Thank you.

    #39 Dear @Mohammed Sultan- thanks again for engaging my mind. When scouts of bees find a good resource they waggle dance to let other bees find out the new location and the direction how to get there. The bees need to know not only where to go, but also the direction how to get there.
    As for birds that migrate to the same place annually they know the destination well ahead of time. They could travel more than 1000 km to get there. They need now more the direction how to get there because they know the destination.
    So, I agree with you and your son if birds were to migrate to different places they need first to find the destination. This what bees do as they scout different flours . They send scout bees to find a new source. The destination in this case comes first.
    Mohammed Sultan
    16/01/2017 #39 Mohammed Sultan
    Birds immigration or businesses journey is not set for specific direction,so both need focus to dwell in promising areas that worth the energy and attention given to their long journey.Setting a proper direction without focusing on what you do better than others will keep you floundering or at best just a runner.The journey often comprises a set of milestones with objectives,and with ever stopping a new direction may need to be set.Just as people may become lost,adrift,and aimless once they have reached a goal.My son, a diplomat, has once told me that- we are like the immigrating birds, every year in a different duty station, so many of us suffer from what we can call it an "arrival syndrome" or "immigration syndrome".It's not the direction itself that's important.it's the challenge to find what you thrive for.

    #34 I thank you heartedly dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit for writing a lovely comment. Till now scientists are not sure how birds do it. We know birds and animals do it, but how is still a challenging question in most cases.
    You bring two hugely relevant points. Yes, Serendipity has played a major role in our lives and has led to great discoveries. So many chemical and other discoveries weren't planned for; through serendipity they emerged. X-ray is one example.
    As for the rational thinking of man- yes, and this is an asset the man forgets to use and I feel sometimes it is better than have it and neglect it is worse than not having it at all. As I mentioned in my response to @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman how much rational thinking goes in the stock markets when greed becomes a dominant force and all lessons and data are burnt by greed.
    Inner compass and inner motivation- and now inner compass and outer compass- a great point to expand on my friend.

    Creating a website is only the beginning. It's useless if nobody knows it exists. It needs to be promoted.
    It's not a "Field of Dreams," where you simply "Build it and they will come."
    It needs to be continually updated, too. It can be a central command. Think of your LinkedIn, Twitter, beBee and/or Facebook pages as allied products.
    Link them to your website and vice versa. The content can be virtually identical, reinforcing your message.

    It's a great idea to use beBee as a positioning platform for job seekers and for the employers who are seeking a synergy with employees passion and core interests.This idea can encourage everyone to stick around the idea of branding themselves.Branding doesn't mean presenting your core skills or core interests but instead positioning the output of both and sticking it in the hiring manager's mind.Unlike presenting your past ,positioning means telling your story from the employers point of view .Here, I understand that HR are going to treat employees as brands and therefore will be headed by Chief Employee Experience Officers! That's a great concept with good payoffs on both sides.Thank you @Juan Imaz.

    I held my stomach when I first saw Brand You 20 years ago but I can certainly live with it today. There is room in the 21st Century for 20th Century marketing because people readily identify with it and it is a perpetuation of a belief system which one can argue voraciously for. I am a heretic when it comes to personal branding but I am also a student of what brings us to embrace image and where we can find safe harbour and refuge from a society that is very image bound and where identification is important.

    Tom Peters - Brand You [1997]

    The Church of Personal Branding has grown substantially in the last 20 years so as a positioning device it works and will continue to work over the next few years. I recognize the rise of branded properties and acknowledge the 'great brands" and also superstars who deploy branding strategies to manage their public image, but Brand You is "personal brand" for the masses.

    I neither wish to view myself as product, nor do I see value in my subscription to what can amount to a personal idolatry, At the individual level "brand you" can turn into a virulent form of group-think because it is an idea virus, and in that form it is well worth studying as a social and group phenomenon.

    At a personal level personal brand has never been a personal requirement but it is worth playing with because social ideas are playthings that are seeds for personal innovation. Personal brand is required as a form of control since we are still evolving as a human society, and as long as we remain living in a broadcast culture - this evolution will be the slow path towards renaissance.

It is a social transformation that will change the reality and lives of all of us for the better. This is the process, but not like Kafka's process. What is important is the time. This is more like the creation of a new value by WE and not just a personal brand by itself. Future leadership is about social complexity with a growing trend of social encounters and exchanges. You are the one and we'll be back.

    #28 In "time leadership" we help the leader investigates h/his relation with "time and decisions" in a different way based on h/his "core interests" not his "core skills".The time horizon of time leadership will be stretched more beyond the traditional leadership tasks of operational visioning to the philosophical part of their org vision which includes its identity and purpose.Time leadership will lead to the emergence of a new set of an organizational "core competences" based on the common interests of its people and rooted in the success moments in which they have done things differently.Time leadership,at the end ,will help create an org "common intuition" and expand the cognitive span of its executives beyond the norm and the logic of the traditional leadership tasks.

    #29 Aurorasa, not saying that training is completely irrelevant. However, it is well known that practitioners who are successful with one approach in a coaching or clinical counseling field are very often successful using other approaches as well. While some are not successful using the same approaches, no matter what. Leading to the conclusion that the contribution made by the practitioner him- or herself is often the key to success. When it comes to dealing with human needs and frailty, you can't just read a book or take a course, and, wham bang, become good at helping people. In your case, for example, I personally perceive a level of empathy and sympathy that cannot be taught but must be nurtured and developed.

    After your "coach the coach" class you have to go out there and find clients to gain experience. After a while, what you have learned in theory and praxis will melt together into "your thing".

    #19 I think I was more aiming at the delivery (including follow-up) than the quality of coaches.

    I have to say that I started coaching only 3 years ago (and not exclusively executives) so that I have definitely not seen it all or know it all.

    What you are saying about prices seems to be a good point. Maybe we should negotiate from the beginning on that follow-ups are necessary.

    #18 Well, that´s an interesting tax construct.

    I´m not saying that I think the quality of coaches is not good. Often it would help if there would be a follow-up after a training.

    What is difficult, especially if you can´t bill the time, is keeping people motivated to repeat whatever information has been shared until it became a skill or habit.

    Often, we go back to our stressful jobs and forget about the training/coaching right after it ended, even though we felt the content made sense and can help us.

    @Aurora Sima. The problem with leadership coaching is that many executives are trained on "core skills" not "core interests".Every executive based on his or her core skills wants to be a leader,but the question is ;are they really have deep interests in creative thinking and the instinct of taking risks rather than the ambition and the prestige of being leaders by the title?Nowadays, leadership training should go beyond "time management" to "time leadership" Executives are in a more need to be trained on how they conceive their leadership role for the future and in different boundaries.The more the coach can expand the cognitive power of the trainee ,the more the individual will be able to stretch his or her thinking beyond the norm, and the more the trainee will be able to pay attention to what's left unsaid or what else question? "Time leadership" training will surface the moments when the trainee has made something different.The more you analyze them you will find the themes or the threads that run through them, and the more you can help him/her to shape their core interests.Thank you for your insightful article.

    #20 Within each of the professional areas you highlight, there exists models and schools of thoughts that are student centred, client centred, and NOT practitioner centred. Of course, you'd have to have more than a passing knowledge about these disciplines to know that.

    #19 Pascal and Aurorasa, what People have to realize is that coaching -- like teaching, clinical psychology, and counseling -- is practitioner-centric. Methods, schools of thought, techniques all matter less than WHO THE PERSON IS who is doing it. Effective coaches grow organically, not made. And paying to take and complete a course doesn't turn someone into a coach. Of course, neither does standing on a rock and proclaiming oneself the leader of the next evolutionary level of mankind. Caveat emptor. Cheers!

    too many coaches are kill the coaching industry, in Ireland there is an abnormal ratio of coaches, consultants per square meter it is actually frightening. The excellent ones get shafted by the mediocre ones who offer great prices.....and average service delivery, they all worship gurus like Tony Robbins to a point of obsession.

    It is an industry that need to reset itself but is not homogeneous so maybe it is only a phase.... but I am tired and sometimes cynical when I hear the same things form interchangeable consultant. So to your quesiton, has it failed probably not but the edge is not too far either:-)

    One shoe doesn't fit all. It's not an excuse to deny core issues.

    It is derived from bad policies, bad processes, bad communication or bad people.

    I don't think it's a failure, it overperformed and is now normalising to the genuine people when people have become aware .

    They may not know your field but they certainly know how to evaluate coaches better.

    Funny thing in India, Hiring Executive coaches can save companies' tax but hiring an operations/business consultant gets both of us taxed. Clients want to hire an executive coach who teaches their manager operations in the guise of leadership. I don't pick up such assignments because the label would be very restrictive unless they mention my scope in the contract.

    @Aurorasa Sima It's great to see you active. Now, I don't know if it's IQ, EQ or FQ (careful pronouncing that last one) but I entered the professional working world in 1977. In the ensuing 40 years technology has made the great leap forward. From what I can see, human resource management (a misnomer if ever there was one) hasn't changed one goddamn bit except for the adoption of new jargon, lingo and buzz. For all of the corporate world's claims to care for the well being of their most valuable asset they continue to give short shrift to supporting the real humans who work for them. Wall Street, Bay Street, or The City - they demand quarterly results and if those are put in jeopardy by the collateral damage of human kind - too bad. Perhaps there are some shining examples that disprove this - Google, Aetna, Apple, Manulife? Not sure. That would be an interesting track to follow and maybe I shall for another day. In the meantime, thanks again for provoking thought in a meaningful way!

    Good point, Ian. Anything that has to do with changing your ressourceful brain is tricky. The approach you suggested would definitely be the way to go.

    I could see smaller companies with wise leaders adopting it. Large corporations, public companies not so much. It´s not easy to show the ROI on gratitude. Respect ends when sales targets are not met.

    And if companies adapt it ... I´m working on an article "mindfuless to go". Some companies ARE adopting mindfulness programs. But it´s more a play on the old game of increasing productivity and helping people who are suffering from too much pressure to endure even more.

    I deliver my EI training over a period of 30 days and then two more components on days 50 and 80. Supporting people after the initial motivations fades is the hard part.

    Functional, precise, understandable to those who suppress everything for rationality, I.e. curing the worst affected.
    The only extension to this is for authority to yield for the organisation, but if it doesn't , the employee should not feel suppressed to yield for the self.
    Someone must figure it and/or feel it and start applying.

I know there are many things I am passionate about - but this really is an area that I love and I sense is so significant in this era of transitioning from our beliefs that the rational is everything to sensing there is much more to being human and creating our world than the rational and logic, which is only one way of perceiving the world. thanks so much for sharing your passion for this area as well - as our passions ignite one another! :)

    Too often, humanity (and being human) has been disassociated from our organizations... Thank you Sara for the reminder that ultimately organizations are made up of people. In Christian scriptures, the church is defined as a body... made up of many parts, with different purposes, some hidden and others out in front, but ultimately each piece brings their value to the complete 'whole', working for a purpose larger than any one of the parts can independently accomplish. I think that metaphor has been extended well in your post.

    @Sara Jacobovici Can you please tell the whole world what you share with beBee. You should be doing some TED talks on this topic, Is there an e-book ?
    This is class from the beginning to the end. One cannot break it down more clearly than what you have . "Through seven figures come sensations for a man - Through these come knowledge or lack of it." This is the best corporate quote of 2017and the way you explain it with quotes is like a mind click to remember.

    We often only hear and forget to listen. We do it with the people around us, Managers to their team members, Teacher's to the students , husbands to the wives and vice versa. Don't hear BUT LISTEN and absorb and gain the sense of balance that is needed.

    If organisations were to have CEO's like yourself, then employees attrition rate will go down and productivity will go through the roof ! Thank you for an excellent buzz Sara You will be an asset to any organisation.

    This buzz is sheer beauty @Sara Jacobovici. I enjoyed reading it immensely. You gave sesses a "business image" by providing great examples supported with great logic, quotes and facts. I believe this ranks among your top buzzes. I find the flow of the buzz so smooth that I blamed myself to pause and select few lines from the buzz that captured my attention. Here they are:
    The irony is that our higher cognitive brain depends on information it receives through the sensory system.
    If a leader of a company or a team receives information which has been deprived in any way of his visual sense, then the information he passes on will be incomplete
    If the Corporate Body is not exposed to a variety of tastes; sweet, spicy, tart, bitter, salty and so on, then everything begins to taste the same. This bland experience prevents growth.
    The Corporate Body needs to experience the rough and smooth, the sand and the water, the soft and prickly. What we walk on, sit on, the door we grab when entering the building, the handshakes, the pat on the back.

    I haven't read a buzz as influential as this one relating senses to business. You did it beautifully. That I have a mention in your buzz is a source of pride for me. Sharing..

    @Mohammed Sultan. I completely agree on the more junior brand managers do make this mistake more often than not. On the other side of the coin, I have seen and worked with companies that start to show that the continue to implement older marketing ideas and not paying attention to where their current clients are looking and responding to their messaging.

    The ideas and saying of "Wheres the beef?" cannot be recycled and used in today's market. It's plain and simple. Today's customers (beating a dead horse here) are so informed and cannot be swayed with ideas that might work. This is what I have been seeing as of late. Companies messages, websites and other marketing collateral for themselves and not for their customers. This is why the Spaghetti Factor is not just used by smaller inexperienced companies but by experienced marketers that cannot pull themselves away from what made them successful in days of past.
