    Impressive, attempt, @John White, MBA. IMO, Millennial bashing is a "they said, they said". Our younger people, no matter what generation, have to find their way. They are dealing with different struggles and a more complicated world. Just because they are not like us, doesn't mean they're wrong.

    I would say that participation trophies that had you accomplish tasks and requiring you earn it (I.E. I attended an active shooter workshop months back and had to complete a number of exercises) are worth having because they show that you're being productive and you're interested in learning something new. Frequently, once you have achieved the goals of that exercise, you'll be motivation to push yourself further.

    The one thing that does irritate me with the younger half of my generation is that many of them have been taught that 'simply being a warm body' is sufficient for recognition. Then, there's the other side of the spectrum where parents will drill it into their kids that anything less than first place is unacceptable. I understand the competitive spirit behind it, but I feel this is the same mindset that teaches young adults that getting an A- in a class is unacceptable.

    #14 Note that each Toastmasters Club is an individual private members club

    Madrid Toastmasters is an English speaking club in Madrid. There are also bilingual clubs such as Nova Commuication

    Nova Communication - Madrid

    Here is a Toastmasters article about this bilingual club

    Madrid Toastmasters - Speaker from 4 years ago

    The great thing about Toastmasters is that one is not limited to existing chartered clubs, beBee can charter its own club requiring 20 people to start a club. With chartering a club, the benefit is that one can find out the Toastmasters way from scratch and build a club that everyone develops an affinity together i.e. as a learning lab.

    This is information how to start a Toastmasters Club

    Indeed you can get help from Nova Communication and Madrid Toastmasters in setting up a club because Club Coaches is a Leadership credit in the Toastmasters program - but best of all - it can be a way of practicing English, formulating speeches about beBee and creating a corporate club - so there is plenty of ways to look at this !

    This is why I advocate Toastmasters and here is information regarding Madrid

    Toastmasters Madrid

    There will always be two areas where I will remain a fish out of water and those areas are :

    1. Networking Events
    2. Speed Dating

    It is not simply because they require impromptu speaking but because of who I am and my values fit with these forms of tribal dance. Where we want to get a better handle on our communications, then the practice area for that is a different kind of network - one based on learning rather than being put in a sell situation.

    Networking is selling, so if one wants to be a better at sales then improve persuasion competency. Speech is relationship, so if one wants to be better at communication then here I pick a learning lab approach, which is what drew me to Toastmasters and what drew me to beBee. Close

    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.

    Kudos @Juan Imaz. It's ME who aspires to become WE, effortlessly and seamlessly. In doing so, ME remains authentic and effortlessly united with WE. 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.

    @Kristen Maslanka I feel you nailed everything in your phrase, "it is not who you know, but who know's YOU." This world today is all about relationships, especially online. Every click is a person. We have to view them as that. If we view every lead we ever get in whatever type of lead funnel we use as statics, we'll never truly succeed. It is possible but it will take probably 1000 times for traffic. Great tips you left.

    Clarity is something i can always improve on!

    Oh really?! Nothing beats an old fashioned book. I still end up with an entire floor of reference books open in a circle around me. I joke and call it my summoning circle of knowledge. (( if you like older books on foreshortening- Andrew Loomis' books particularly his book on illustration is a great reference))

    Goodness, that is exciting! I can't wait to see what you post with it. Yeah i was using an intuos for years before i upgraded to my cintiq, but I couldn't do without it now!

    It's the most convenient guitar for a student to keep without taking up too much room in the plane and in their apartment! I never thought of it that way, but that's a stunning way to view the instrument- I can look at my hohmer in a whole new way. The blues...golly. So beautiful. Ever check out Susan Tedeschi? That girl has a voice like no other. I like pretending I can cover her songs.

    If you ever want to jam some time i'm always open!

    #17 Yes, I will let you know if we can do some collaborating. That would be cool. I'm sure I would learn something. Designing is to me, a simplified art form. Yes, for spectacular design, there is much time and process invested, but the real trick is clarity. One can't sacrifice the message, or content, for the design. Or it's a fail. Remember, we work in the boundaries of a 3 second attention span. haha It needs to be Boom! There!

    I have a small collection of art books from the seventies. So darn cool. I still reference them for brushin' up on fore shortening and what not.

    I am getting a Galaxy Tab A 10.1 and s-pen Tomorrow! So excited! It's no Cintiq, but plenty worthy for what I need. I've been using a Bamboo pad and it's challenging enough. Time to upgrade woo hoo!

    Now I know what a guitalele is. How did I not know what that was? Sounds like an awesome instrument. Harmonica is the instrument of the soul. Think about it. Our very life's breath powers that little machine, and it has a spiritual sound like no other instrument. I love the Blues, maybe one of my favorite genres.

    Quick Fact: Anyone, and I mean anyone can learn how to sing in some capacity. The vocal cord is operated by muscle. Muscles can be built and trained. With practice and proper instruction, anyone can learn to carry a tune. :)

    That's very cool that you sing and are musically inclined. It's lends a great balance to our visual arts interests too. Gotz to have my audio!

    I will check out Pascal Campion's art. Sounds great!

    You sound like you're going places. Anyone with as much passion and commitment and enthusiasm as you have, is going places. All of the interests that you have are healthy, happiness generators that make you a winner and anyone worthy will be lucky to put you on their payroll. Just felt like sharing that with you. :)

    For starters -- right here on beBee -- take a look for the various Hives. I belong to Career Management and Career Development. And then you can take a look at the people there. For books, the classic "Knock 'Em Dead" series by Martin Yate* can't be beat.

    I do volunteer career coaching with Greg Johnson** - a good resource.

    Bob McIntosh*** is another career coach I admire.

    #10 Well it's never too late to improve those talents, and if you ever want to collaborate on an illustration, or you are looking to improve your talents, I'd be happy to help critique or point you to some amazing reference books. ( I used to be a librarian, so reference is in my blood!)
    Are you kidding me?! Designing is just as hard as illustration! It takes a keen eye to develop those aesthetics to see the entire picture. I learned that in making my own comics- the aesthetic of the whole page and the organization of that page, that's hard stuff! Kudos to you.
    Tablets are great! I use my cintiq and I adore it but it would be nice to be able to bring it with me wherever I go. One day i'll have to invest in a portable tablet. Which one did you end up getting?

    I play the guitelele....sort of. My father is particularly musically inclined and I really can't play much on the guitar save a few riffs here and there and the occasional easy "smoke on water" tablature, but I can play a mean harmonica and I can sing!
    Vaudeville?! That must make for some rich stories!!!!!!! I'd love to hear more!

    How adorable! That's wonderful to hear. Family is very important, and make for some wonderful inspiration. (Check out Pascal Campion's art if you want some warm fuzzy family illustration)

    Oh goodness, I'm passionate about storytelling and art in general- so yeah that lends me to a lot of passions. I adore history, so I'm constantly pouring through books- particularly regarding the victorian era and the Rococo. I embroider, and I love cooking. I write- both poetry and fiction, and as my page suggests, I'm also a film enthusiast, so once I get my 35 mm camera's up and running again I'd love to pick that up once more and do some traditional editing/splicing! I also enjoy hiking and playing with my bordercollie.

My last name is a gift and a curse, when people give me special treatment because they assume I'm related, its great, however I do get asked a lot lol, I just enjoy the mystery of leaving people suspenseful as to my actual relation to the family.

    Hi @Kristen Maslanka, what a refreshing read! You wrote, "Asking them open-ended conversation starters, getting to know them as individuals, and inviting them to know more about you opens more possibilities than the one door you open when you simply ask them for advice," I couldn't agree more, when you reach out to others they are usually happy to help or offer advice. It's also a great way to begin new friendships on many levels.

    i don't know much about digital platform and how it flourishes, but, to me, those people, who are continuously striving to enhance the popularity and accordingly contributing with their articles to popularize this platform with their buzzes needed to be appreciated and acknowledged with due regards.; their honest endeavor are of great paramount, as per their sincere contributions are largely being surfed and they do make prolific efforts to popularize this unique platform. wish beBee, the leading social networking should take necessary measures to hold their potentials, making this site truly the best across the world. after all, present world is the world being influenced and dominated by the digital media and new media. i personally believe, their contributions should be heeded with due gravity and they should be treated with certain incentives to retain their talents and serious engagements.after all, it is serious encouragements, which can bring out more valuable contributions, making this site a distinct one across the world. modern consumerist world only means business and we must be focused to enhance our business too. as far my opinion, beBee is the only networking site across the world, which may change the definition of social net working site by redefining the site with a separate magnitude, utterly different from the rest of the social networking site. wish beBee may dazzle the sites of social networking sites with its distinctive acumen, for which, it may curve a niche as the best site with a distinctive flavor. my cordial appreciations and aspirations are always with beBee.

    GREAT JOB AGAIN HERE @John White, MBA, IT WAS VERY WELL WRITTEN. I feel that anyone that is in school or in business should read it 7 can learn from it. We all have a personal brand. By having a strong online presence, she or he will create the space for individuals to get a better understanding of who you are and what a person stands for. Depending on your company and industry, a large footprint may be difficult or even unnecessary to accomplish, but you need to know that having a solid online presence translates into credibility and leads in the workplace. Please remember be kind to all people you meet and try to help people. Good deeds go a long way & will pay benefits. If I can help anyone reading this note here feel free to call or email me. I do like helping people & its been in my DNA over the past 15 years.

    Simon Sinek on Millennials in the Workplace
    Simon Sinek on Millennials in the Workplace Excerpt of Simon Sinek from an episode of Inside Quest....


    CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    08/01/2017 #6 CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    #5 This is the thing, not everybody with millennial kids shares the same experiences he is talking about, but first when I watched this - I thought maybe our family is just an exception to the rule. As I went out exploring this I discovered he has exposed a home truth about a particular parenting style, but one cannot paint all millennials as a result with the same brush - and if anything the usefulness of this video is to discover at the same time the truths that go into a stereotype or a label.

    There is a problem with social media but it applies equally to all generations whether they be boomers or millennials, which is how quickly we take it at face value. It is not that we are not individually intelligent enough to understand it, but that we move on quickly to the next piece of social media before we have absorbed and tested this in our own context or given reality.

    Ironically when I first heard him speak, his powers of persuasion were immense, he had me convinced that he had found the great truth and I had to check myself spouting this as I thought "Wait, why not ask a millennial - the one's I know, the one's we parented".

    In the cold day of light, it is a great truth that pertains to a specific demographic with a specific conformity of cultural values. As Bugs Bunny might say, "sometimes it just feels-white", (I mean right).
    Antoine Prager
    08/01/2017 #5 Antoine Prager
    This video is super important and very interesting, anyone with kids should first watch it, reflect on it and then watch it and discuss it with their kids. Because social media are a great thing but managing social media is now part of parenting. Don´t you think so?
    CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    06/01/2017 #4 CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    What I am going to focus on most is Simon Sinek delivery and presentation style. He speaks with great authority and assurance, only problem is that I have yet to find a millennial who I have talked to that actually matches up with the kind of millennial group he is talking about. Then again, I have not talked so far to white middle class parents who buy into all such entitlement and spoiling.

    He is addressing a sub-group and if he was Clinton's running mate, he would probably get her another million votes in California and lose the Rust Belt of America by an even bigger margin than Clinton lost it - maybe even 5pts compared to Clinton's 3.5pt under-performance from the last election. Whatever the actual facts of his content, he is a compelling speaker and I am not surprised by the viral nature of this video, it speaks to 100% Sinekism or Cynicism about rich white people.

    Millennials look at companies as the paths of their thoughts and when these thoughts are blocked or not addressed and expressed,they reach a premature end.Millennials,so,quit their jobs either because they don't have the power or the patience to bend with the conformity trend or because their pockets,time and hearts are filled.Generally,considering millennials as loyal assets is a welfare or a fantasy that goes beyond the business logic and the well established economic theories.

    Trump Statement: "Whether it is our government, organizations, associations or businesses we need to aggressively combat and stop cyberattacks.The methods, tools and tactics we use to keep America safe should not be a public discussion that will benefit those who seek to do us harm. Two weeks from today I will take the oath of office and America's safety and security will be my number one priority."

    Many thanks for your incredibly valuable feedback, Zacharias, which is most appreciated. You make several excellent points for which we should all pay attention. I'd be interested in your take of an article from today's NextGov.com on the issue per a report by the non-partisan Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity (except below):
    "Advancing our nation’s cybersecurity posture must be a key priority for the Trump administration, especially if we are to maximize the benefits of digital transformation...while there are many potential benefits of a more active role for the federal government in the global standards arena, this activity should be closely tied to the promotion of international, industry-driven standards. Using market-based approaches allows technology companies to focus resources on enhancing innovative security solutions for the global market, rather than on compliance with distinct requirements in different countries."
    Zacharias Voulgaris 🐝
    04/01/2017 #28 Zacharias Voulgaris 🐝
    It seems to me that the issue with cybersecurity is a bit more complex than that. In a nutshell, we have all these issues because we simply don't care enough to seek more secure solutions. The technology is there is ensure a practically perfect encryption end-to-end in all our communications, yet people still prefer to use A or B because they are either popular or they're used to using them, even if there is an option C out there that is 1. secure, 2. free to use, and 3. as easy to use as options A and B. So, please, don't make this non-issue into an issue. If we really wanted to have secure communications, for example, we wouldn't hesitate to boycott options A and B until they comply with the security standards laid down by the scientists and engineers who have spent countless hours developing them. The science and the technology is there, so we really don't have an excuse.

    Nevertheless, this was an enjoyable article to read, since it's easy to lose touch with the social and political aspects of the matter and the issue it becomes when technically inept individuals are asked to deal with it. Let's hope at least that the people these individuals hire to sort this out are more adept at understanding and dealing with the challenges at hand.

    #19 Thanks very much for reading, commenting and sharing this post, @Ali Anani. I echo your concerns. My informal understanding is that intelligence communities of various countries are indeed trying to recruit cyber criminals to work for those governments. However, strategic intentions will vary between democracies and authoritarian regimes. Let's hope the good guys can win over the bad guys and make cyberspace a safer place.

    Excellent topic that certainly needs more attention, especially beyond the political hacking we hear so much about. The Sony incident is a great example of corporate espionage, blackmail and brand management. While many in the DC area know to never put in writing something you don't want on the front page of the Washington Post tomorrow, that philosophy doesn't carry as much outside the beltway. Be careful of what you say and do.

    I think for those of us who are the little guys/gals, we need to remember that nothing is sacred in terms of the Internet. The old advice of not writing/saying/posting anything you wouldn't want to see on the front page of the NY TImes still holds.

    I am on a nonprofit board, and although we meet every month, occasionally we discuss stuff via email. Makes me crazy because sometimes it's about a person. I never add to those messages with anything other than the most general terms. I would much rather we have conference calls, but they are hard to schedule.

    Scary times, David! And no easy answers. Timely post, and thanks!

    Cyber security is a difficult task. Even with the most sophisticated systems the downstream is not initiated regardless of how much training. Upstream, those who host websites and other outside services are another risk. Our IP address got hacked and used and became part of a federal investigation, it was hacked at our service provider.

    As our dependency grows on tech so will the sophistication of those who would hack. Hacking is similar to selling bootleg movies. On the surface it seems victimless, but in reality becomes a stepping stone that builds across networks.

    The dependency will be vetted in just a few years. Today cyber crime is treated, within the masses, as a mere nuisance. What happens when a persons brand is destroyed and that is their livelihood. How will the CJS see this? I know we always link cyber security to national security to expand the seriousness of the matter. But what happens when middle class Joe gets slammed by the thousands with brand deformation.

    We need to take the threat seriously. Great discussion.

    And for years, people have had to find hat gives them energy outside of work. they may not be in a leadership position, but they love initiating things, so at home they are the leader of a charity, or something they love. Today, if the organization is innovative, that very same person can lead something at work, no matter whether in a leadership position or not. This is tapping into the potential of people - this is letting people use their passions at work. This is the future. We are becoming whole people at work and at home. This is being authentic. BeBee is creating the context for people to be more of themselves. thank-you BeBee.

    well said @Javier 🐝 beBee - My work has always included the personal and the professional, but, it is as if it has been undercover! For example, When coaching people in workplaces, I felt like an undercover agent. Some-one may have a challenge with their manager. I find out they also have a problem with their partner in a similar way. We work on understanding the pattern in both the person's personal and professional life. The person may be open about what they are changing at home, but, they may never have to speak about what they are doing wit their manager, yet what they change in their personal life positively affects the relationship with their manager. It has been an artificial split. when something arises so called not related to work, and we have "worked on it" - yet, it has had just as much working on making that relationship better as working on the relationships at work.

    Thank you, Javier, for sharing more important words of wisdom about personal/professional branding and how beBee makes it blossom. Also, kudos on all of your exemplary work and for finding the time (somehow) to engage with bees and users of other social platforms.
    I wish you, your family and the entire beBee family all the very best in 2017. I know beBee will continue to break new ground with more buzz and honey, making 2017 an especially sweet New Year!
    Thanks again for all YOU do -- and ditto that for the beBee team.

    Building your personal brand means taking a look at all of your interests, how they relate and putting them to work for you.

    The entire philosophy of personal branding I work with is about the full person. A fundamental aspect of the Reach 360 Personal Branding Assessment I use is to look at your brand in different areas of your life - work, family, friends, clients. The best brands are the same in all aspects of their lives and so you need to build an integrated brand of professional and personal interests. When you understand this better you can also see how your personal and professional interests over lap more than you might think.

    He invited me to a party once in the mid-eighties after helping somewhat with his hiring of some Japanese flight crews. Was very surprised to be able to meet a lot of acts on the Virgin label, like Kate Bush at the party. I thought he was mad going into the airline business, but he proved us all wrong!

    Such a great role model @Javier 🐝 beBee, Sir Richard Branson! I have admired this man for a long time. It's apparent you admire him too. I actually thought of him when I saw some of the fun things you incorporate within the company, beBee- passions, fun, laid back atmosphere, professional and hard work. A very good mix!

    #1 Así es @Henri Galvão! No se trata de "acumular" contactos como cuando coleccionábamos cromos de pequeñitos, sino de hacer un regalo sincero y desinteresado de lo que cada uno pueda aportar y de cómo yo puedo ayudarte a crecer. Y de alguna manera el efecto boomerang te devolverá ese "favor" aunque no venga directamente de la misma persona a quien tú se lo hiciste.
    Yo podría escribir un libro sobre experiencias de ese tipo, y todas tremendamente positivas!!! 💫

    @Javier 🐝 beBee posted "This is not an issue on beBee, Inc. , the platform for personal branding, where you can showcase your entire personal brand" and that is great as there are lot's of users on LinkedIn that expect some flexibility like I wrote before nobody talks business 24/7 , that is why companies have water-coolers :) Anyway , The way I see LinkedIn vs beBee is like "Suit and Tie" (LinkedIn), beBee is "business casual outfit" and I would always prefer "business casual outfit" over Suit and Tie but that is me.

    #12 That is what I see my kids doing, video is an interesting study in anthropology, this also includes visual uses for work life, even if what we may observe is being used for fun. All good stuff and we are not even thinking of Facebook or LinkedIn when we get fully immersed in this user experience :-)

    #3 Three things are important

    1. End value to user determined by how users actually use the platform and value as they see it

    2. Ability to pivot if purpose for the user has changed - Facebook's pivots are varied as sometimes their purpose is stretched a.k.a. pivots away from privacy concerns or too strong on purpose for internet.org (Free Basics)

    3. Adoption of sharing by sites - where the share button appears is an indicator of adoption and awareness - sharing is the ultimate touchpoint, it is one more indicator that a platform is becoming a "way of life".

    I like the fact that @Juan Imaz is keeping an eye on Snapchat - Snapchat even created Snapchat glasses as they focus on innovative tests and explorations, which is a measure of how much value does a person using snapchat hold for it as a part and parcel of their daily life and activity. This goes well beyond what their core value proposition is. It is a smart and interesting action learning from user experience.

    beBee can't really be compared with Linkedin. beBee is a blog posting platform encouraging stranger interaction above all. There is no real way to interact amongst contacts. beBee's heavy traffic on blog posts is caused by highly motivated pollinators. This model may not be sustainable long enough to morph into a traditional social network. I would do things differently.

    #1 @CityVP 🐝 Manjit comparison is inevitable since everybody is doing it. beBee is making a lot of buzz ! :-) All we know both platforms have different purposes. LI is seen as a huge professional directory , to sell and find a job, and beBee is the most complete platform to build your entire personal brand, engaging professionals through common interests - can be personal can be professional. BE PROFESSIONAL, BE PERSONAL, BE SUCCESFUL !

    "Is there a beBee button present or is it mainly LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest etc " yes, there is ... this button is all of the bees 🐝, we users in other platforms can be the "ambassadors of beBee", the comparison works in showing there is an opportunity to be grab in the market, users who are looking for something between LinkedIn and Facebook , that sweet pot (honey) is beBee , so like a business outfit, it is very possible to do business without "tie and suit" approach even where I sit (Japan) #1 @CityVP Manjit

    It is should never be about what we are not, it is should be about what we are. The key progress in social media is the share button. Is there a beBee button present or is it mainly LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest etc - it is therefore to focus on how one becomes one of the Big Five, rather than comparison shop, because then the mindset is of a wannabee and not a mindset of innovative disruption.

    If I focused on comparing myself with Flavio Souza, do you think I can ever be you. It is when you wake up one day and you want to be like me, that the story begins - why alert the tiger, when the real art here is to turn the tiger into a pussy-cat.

    Look at Walmart, they used to be this small group of rural stores that K-mart underestimated http://www.retailwire.com/discussion/tpma-outlook-where-did-kmart-go-wrong/ Walmart just kept on with its business, kept its eye on the prize, and its pedal to the metal. Look at it now :-) K-Mart is now the pussycat, Walmart is the Tiger. Walmart looked at its own data.
