Comments27/04/2017 #46 Phil Friedman#42 I agree, Michael, but would caution that, as the number of participants grows, the harder it is to herd the cats. They not only have to leave their egos at the door, but also the their propensity to speak without first reading and seeking to understand. Giving a "moderator" the tools to keep a discussion approximately on point would be essential to achieving success. IMO. Cheers!27/04/2017 #45 Javier 🐝 beBee@debasish majumder you can call it as you want. beBee publishing platform will be casuing trouble and therefore stopping something from continuing as usual ;-) Humans are social animals and bees show a great sense of teamwork and collaboration ! bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz27/04/2017 #44 debasish majumderi don't think it is disruptive, rather most appreciative, collaborative and true affinity based plat form where humility, amity and uniqueness is the key to make it the most distinct platform where without physically knowing each other, we have developed a unique bonding, waiting with alacrity when our endearing will offer us with delectable honey. lovely insight @Javier 🐝 beBee! enjoyed read and share. thank you very much for such lovely post.27/04/2017 #43 Javier 🐝 beBee#42 @Michael O'Neil I can tell you. Our collaborative publishing platform is going to be AMAZING !!!!! CC @Alberto Anaya Arcas @Federico 🐝 Álvarez San Martín @Noël De Castro García @Raul Duque Montánez @Rafael García Romano GO GO !!!! SUPER TEAM vamossssssssssssssssssss27/04/2017 #42 Anonymous#40 Phil, what this platform can evolve to is what you and Jim have demonstrated with your collaborations. If you generalize this two person collaboration to an interactive collaborative platform, rather than a sequential comment capture platform, then who knows what would emerge. One of the (implicit) rules has to be "leave your ego at the door". What I have seen in the collaborations between you and Jim has been impressive. The evolution and refinement of an idea by the contributions of two people. Scale that and the value generated could be huge. Toss in a problem. Ideas are thrown in. A practical, implementable solution begins to emerge. Crowd sourcing a solution with every contributor participating with good intent, ego set aside, to deliver the best possible solution.
Javier, that would be pretty awesome.26/04/2017 #40 Phil FriedmanAs one of the co-authors of one of the longest running collaborative content efforts on LinkedIn and later on beBee, I can assure you that both my co-author @Jim Murray and I applaud your decision to provide a tool for collaborative content development.

And that's what I admire here. You enter a hive and you perfectly know that bees there will be interested to listen and learn and share their thoughts with you. I have a new description for beBee: Elevating EVERY business.. I met great people here and I talk to them almost everyday. That's the main goal of networking: Sharing same interests and grow together.25/04/2017 #28 David B. GrinbergThank you, Javier, for another brilliant and buzzing blog post. This is most definitely an exciting time to BEE on beBee in general, and writing on the Producer publishing platform in particular. I personally established beBee as my home base for blogging in April 2016 and I've been thrilled with the results ever since then. I'd go through the list of reasons why, but you already offer numerous exemplary explanations above, in addition to highlight two of my posts about why beBee is beneficial for bloggers.
Many thanks to you, @Juan Imaz, @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood, @John White, MBA and the entire team of worker bees for creating such a wonderful social media experience via this award-winning startup with unlimited potential. The buzz is growing louder every day!

Keep buzzing!19/04/2017 #24 Pamela 🐝 Williams#9 Thanks for the tag Stephan! I was on my phone when I saw it but unfortunately the signal was weak and it locked up on me! I had to wait to get home to read Juan's wonderful post. I'm excited about the collaborative posts! That could be huge fun but especially help develop some very creative posts. We have some great thinker bees in the hive and I would love to see what develops in an actual back and forth 'conversation'. @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, @Sara Jacobovici @CityVP 🐝 Manjit, you three could blow the roof off the hives!
Just imagine some of the fictional stories that could develop. I always feel uncomfortable writing long comments when a post truly inspires thought. With collaborative posts; some great writing teams could develop. beBee is the most innovative social media site in existence and I'm so glad to be a part of the platform.19/04/2017 #23 Franci🐝Eugenia HoffmanSuperb buzz and excellent advice. I am impressed by beBee's positive attitude and continuing endeavors to please its users. #13 Worthy comment @CityVP 🐝 Manjit - reminds me of a comment I read today "be yourself because the original is worth more than a copy" - IMO, this statement is motto worthy.18/04/2017 #20 debasish majumderGreat insight @Juan Imaz! it is truly inspiring that beBee is flourishing, giving leverage to many by creating contents and getting audiences, enabling to make a niche with distinction. wish in near future it alone will enjoy at the apex of social networking site as all bees are working hard to make it a distinct one. nice share. enjoyed read. thank you very much for sharing such inspiring post.18/04/2017 #17 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador#15 If at least we could compare them... but bebee has got is own path. Iam confident about the future days, because in a certain way bebee Can only evolve towards avenues the other SM missed completely. SM is an ecosystem, and bees are crucial to it.18/04/2017 #13 CityVP 🐝 ManjitbeBee as a publishing platform is a bonus. For me it is an expression platform where I am a personal editor.
There is money to be made on the web as a publisher but the traditional line of media was between editor and publisher. That line has been crossed over and over in the online media world, until we are all marketing agents because our principal instruction and learning is from marketers and not journalists. The revival of the human mind will be found through an appreciation for journalism and praising the quality mind of great journalists.
This is the spirit of Edward Murrow talking and not Donald Trump. Trump is a fine marketer, he has shown that through marketing alone one can ascend to a position of great importance, but until we become aware that an editor is different from a publisher, we will continue living in the world as if its only a marketing fishbowl. Great profits in the short-term but no long-term societal value.
beBee therefore is a fantastic expression platform and I welcome my marketing friends to explore it as a publishing platform - but don't buy me, think for yourself - that is also the same message the Beatles gave decades ago https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKchPO4kzCk and even as the Beatles were well marketed they were also great personal editors - a.k.a. their songwriting ability https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9H8zp72dxg Don't follow me, be you.18/04/2017 #11 Javier 🐝 beBeeMore Reasons why you should use beBee Producer

I actually miss beBee when I'm not able to be as active as I normally am on here. Thank you to @Susan 🐝 Botello for the mention too! I really hope to meet you one day soon. It doesn't appear I will be in Cali this month but I'm definitely finding a way to get out to Cali this coming year. When I do, we can meet up!

This platform has helped me to be more open in public and in return I have received more open doors in other networks and with my brand in general.

Comments07/04/2017 #75 Lori Mullins-JohnsonThis is great to hear, but I have seen, even today, someone named anonymous, with no photo on Bebee. It seems to me it is easy enough to set up a fake account, with a name and a photo, how will you determine if it is real? I was connected to, on another networking site, by a man who claimed to be a CEO of a non-profit, I did a little research and discovered that he had used the profile of the actual CEO, put another photo and location into it, and was trying to connect. How do you prevent that on here? It seems on the other site, I could block and report, but I was never notified as to what they did with his account. It would be nice to have follow up if you do encounter something odd.07/04/2017 #68 Yedu 🐝 PanickerFinally, you have come up with a great decision, because, these days, we can witness numerable fake accounts dominating the social networking platforms. I would like to give you a suggestion of mine - Kindly make it mandatory to verify the user account through mobile OTP/Call during the Sign-Up stage, as it will be beneficial in eradicating fake accounts. cc @Javier 🐝 beBee @Federico 🐝 Álvarez San Martín

Never mind newer cityvp pages at https://trello.com/cityvp and https://cityvp.slack.com/ which accomodate new forms of work method that are unique to these more project based sites.
Also it is no longer about being at http://ca.linkedin.com/in/cityvp https://www.facebook.com/cityvp or https://twitter.com/CityVP - and that is the impact of beBee for my own particular case, which is why I think of beBee as a personal branding site as being personally very self-limiting. How others use it is there business, but the reality is that developments in online media do not stop and end with the rise of any particular site. Users as they get familiar with safe and validated sites can choose across a myriad of networked realities.
The irony is that since I presently find mobile to be an inconvenience to my learning journey, when I do get back to the world of smart phone, that brings into play all the networks that I am not interacting with, among them being snapchat etc. That is what my learning journey is about and I that is why I am thankful to having beBee - it fullfills a major one-stop learning network need. Close30/03/2017 #28 Franci🐝Eugenia HoffmanSuperb buzz, Javier. Different networks serve different purposes. However, for my lifestyle, beBee is my main squeeze. I am not a Facebook fan, LinkedIn is only to see what my contacts are doing and to promote beBee, Google is for my email, Printerest I don't bother with, Twitter is a buffer layer, Youtube is for music. I have a few other networks that I use to promote my blog however I am not very active.

Comments26/03/2017 #88 John Marrett#86 A question @Javier 🐝 beBee: when I open up beBee, is there any way to get beBee notifications to notify me when someone I follow has written a new article? I get an email, but I generally stay away from social media except early AM and early evening: guzzles up too much time!26/03/2017 #85 John Marrett#83 Thanks @Javier 🐝 beBee. As mentioned before, I am not a writer nor in a design field so cannot see the value is spending much time here. Also, the only reason I pay LinkedIn is because I do so many searches (like the ones I cannot do here) that I quickly break what LI calls the Commercial Use Limit!26/03/2017 #84 John White, MBA#81 @John Marrett: Yes, you can use both! You don't have to choose one or the other. I love LinkedIn and beBee! Clearly, LinkedIn has more of your target market for business. So, I would suggest you keep using it for sales and prospecting. But don't forget about us here. We are growing and more users are coming on everyday.26/03/2017 #83 Javier 🐝 beBee#81 @John Marrett the answer is too obvious. You have to pay and seek them on LinkedIn !! Of course.
My mesage is "keep linkedin but explore beBee"
Again, both are very different. beBee is a platform for building, showcasing and sharing your personal brand.
LinkedIn is a huge directory for jobs and business.26/03/2017 #81 John Marrett@John White, MBA, please explain how I can overcome my issue 4 (#53) here on beBee:
4. Professional Networking: I am on LinkedIn to find people I can help and to find people who can help me. I cannot do that on beBee!
I am working with a product that is of interest to management consultants. Here are the results of my searches today:
Management Consultants: 246
Management Consultants in Canada: 1
I can only search by Hive, Country, Language
Management Consultants: 2,286,252
Management Consultants in Canada: 107,471
I can filter further by:
Connection Level: 1st, 2nd & 3rd (Groups are available in Sales Navigator)
Locations include not only countries but large cities
And there are several other ways to filter in LinkedIn, with quite a lot more in Sales Navigator
So am I going to look for prospective clients on LinkedIn or on beBee?26/03/2017 #79 John Marrett#78 I've been doing it since 1991 @John White, MBA, LONG before beBee and LinkedIn!
And even before I started my first business in 1991, I was on CompuServe back in the mid 80's as a database developer and Novell Netware System Administrator, where I helped people with their issues ... and others helped me!25/03/2017 #75 John Marrett#74 In the days of Google and social media @John White, MBA, I don't consider location to be personal information. As an example, I know that the current weather in Fort Collins is slightly cloudy, 12 C (53 F) ... which is why you could go for ice cream as your summer has started and the dregs of winter are still here in Montreal!
I have been involved in complex B2B sales since 1991. One always has to develop relationships with people: both the vendor and the buyer need to feel comfortable with each other. But that doesn't mean that I want to open up to the whole world *before* we have developed a relationship!25/03/2017 #74 John White, MBA@John Marrett, interedting responses. You just shared with me on LinkedIn where you live and that it is snowing there. Thise are aspects of your personal life. Also, when yiou do business do you get to know the people you do business with or is 100% business. My approach to doing business is that it is done best when you build relationships and get to know each other. For me, I don't like to do business with people that won't make any effort to get to know me. If all they are intersted in is closing me, I will take a pass.

Our personal brand builds credibility for our selves and the services we sell . I'm positive that beBee provides greater opportunities and success. For professional and personal branding beBee has laid out the perfect platform. Thank you @Juan Imaz 🤗🐝🤗22/03/2017 #19 CityVP 🐝 ManjitJust because I am in a different space does not mean I can argue against this, this is the reality of the market of mass attention and I accept it as condition of this age, so it is that I make the following proposition.
I will seek to bring a student to beBee who is absolute and total in his dedication and mindset to personal brand.
In doing so, what he represents in belief and investment in personal branding, will also become the bridge for me between this learning space at beBee and my offline learning space at HMC.
I will provide an introductory buzz about him, but I also welcome all of my friends at beBee now to ask some questions and then I will present an interview with him and at that point, he will become a part of this community.
How does that sound? If you are all agreeable message me your questions you want this fervent student of personal branding to answer and I will begin to initiate the introductory buzz and then the interview buzz and then with him in person here as an active beBee member.22/03/2017 #16 Mamen 🐝 DelgadoGreat Producer @Juan Imaz, I like to say we are selling even when we are buying... 😉
It is a way of being on Earth, the way we move, we talk, we act and react... And overact sometimes...
And that is so because we never stop communicating, even on our owns we communicate with ourselves which is the primary relationship.
Thanks for sharing this gift!! 😘22/03/2017 #14 Gert Scholtz@Juan Imaz Thank you for an excellent post Juan. I find it very interesting that leads coming from social media activities are seven time more likely to convert. There are a number of Bees that have mentioned their activity on beBee has resulted in more business opportunities and sales.22/03/2017 #13 AnonymousThank you @Juan Imaz for sharing your consistent educational approach.
You are right, Social Media is not the enemy, but can be one of the greatest tools to People, advancing themselves personally and professionally. beBee engages all users in realizing that their branding / social media usage should be the story they want to share about themselves for the world to see. That lasting impact, beyond all existing virtual walls, enlights our own relevant and singular commintments to make us more approachable to others. Well done ! :)22/03/2017 #4 Tausif MundrawalaBranding oneself is not an easy task to achieve. It needs regular nurturing in order to put oneself forth in front of an entire world.

No pressure AT ALL. I know you are a busy man and you will get to it when or if you can. No worries. I wish I had emojis on my PC! Nice buzz @Sara Jacobovici, I think there is room for all... as far as synchronicity and controversial topics which we've all seen not everyone will agree upon. Myself, I prefer to not get caught up in heated topics and I think you along with @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee have proven it's possible to converse and disagree without a topic becoming heated. Everyone differs with their style of writing and I respect that. I'm very excited to see what will be rolling out soon. I'm sure it's more than we expect considering what Juan and Javier have already produced. What a nice buzz Sara!17/03/2017 #18 Javier 🐝 beBeeThanks @Sara Jacobovici ! We are excited about the new platform.
"beBee is an organic environment, an integrated environment, that encourages us to engage in both the personal and professional. You can’t succeed as a business professional without the experience of being a successful human being."17/03/2017 #16 CityVP 🐝 ManjitSimply getting to "human being" is a transformative step for our world as it is, and it is far from that state of evolution. A cousin of mine in California does not feel successful even though his business is profitable and his revenue has topped $5 million, but he resides in a neighbourhood in California where his neighbours have greater net worth. It is pointless for me to convince him what the baseline word "successful" means, this is how he has chosen to live his life.
Boomers like him have a massive amount of disposable capital but we also have massive national debt being placed on the shoulders of successive generations. How did we get into this situation that to bankroll "successful" we sold out future generations?
The change that will happen is simply in the passing of an old guard to a new era, and that old guard is whoever is set in their ways and their ways will go with them as they begin passing and the new generation evolve. This is how change actually happens without bloody revolutions. In the 20th Century the bloodless revolution was a marketed one and people like Edward Bernays were instrumental in knowing how to utilize the powers of marketing and that has informed HR practice also.
This change once required manifesto or open letters or proclamations or revolution, today is conversation. This is a natural transformation at the end of a big hockey stick power law that effects population, climate, wealth and markets. It is a change one individual at a time, minus those who are set in their ways. As I have said before, we are either the last of the prior millennia or the first of a new millennia. It isn't something we decide, it is something we are and hopefully one day will be.17/03/2017 #14 Lance 🐝 Scoular#8 Hi Ho @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee
I think a millennial 🐝 would be more adept and accurate than an old codger like me.👾
🐤Twitter and 👻 Snapchat is where I picked up up using emojis as well as 🐳 Linkedin's customised ones.
Perhaps I will do a video down the track.
@Lisa 🐝 Gallagher is still waiting for me to do a Snapchat video tutorial - requested months ago.😞

Comments16/03/2017 #35 Rodric LeerlingGreat article! Every time I talk to people about their online presence, they start realizing it's in fact Google who says who they are. Even before they were called for a meeting. With a strong online reputation business opportunities will grow significantly. Thanks for creating BeBee!15/03/2017 #22 David B. GrinbergThanks so much for this excellent advice, Juan, as always. I've tweeted and shared this post. I would reiterate your message to those who haven't Googled themselves. That is, do it ASAP and assess the results (especially first page). You need to know what others are seeing because, as Juan, @Javier 🐝 beBee @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood @John White, MBA and others have noted, your online content helps define your personal brand image. Thus, make sure you're getting the SEO results that are best for you. I suggest Googling your full name (in quotes) at least once a week. And, yes, leverage beBee at every available opportunity to build on and improve your Google SEO results. Or, in other words, keep buzzing -- and loudly!15/03/2017 #21 Wayne YoshidaExcellent information and advice, @Juan Imaz. I learned this "trick" a while ago when I discovered the hiring managers and co-workers at one of my previous companies used Google to examine and verify potential employees and their resumes and profiles. And very glad to see Google "likes beBee."
Online personal brand = reputation.14/03/2017 #19 CityVP 🐝 ManjitI want my personal google to keep enriching my learning journey and I want to focus on my personal privacy to ensure I don't make google personal. That then becomes a personal dynamic rather than personal linearity. Technology as an extension of ourselves is the creation of the system owner, but technology as an extension of our insight and humanity, that is recognizing the current limitations of the system. The system continues to drive behaviors. Unfortunately.14/03/2017 #18 Preston 🐝 Vander Ven@Juan Imaz Great Buzz and Tips. For every site that you do want your Target Market to see, Make sure that you name is a SEO KEYWORD. Allow the sites you want to been seen to come up first. For example, my goal is for my blogs to always appear on the first 2 pages of Google when someone types my name in the Search.14/03/2017 #17 Franci🐝Eugenia HoffmanI found my name, Franci Hoffman, on Google only related to my LinkedIn profile. Otherwise, I don't want my personal profile on Google because I had a troll for a while. However, my WP sites and posts appear under amanpan.com, BrewNSpew, Millionaire's Digest, etc., which works for me.
- Producer12/03/2017Then I remembered BebeeNot longer than a year ago, I created my profile on Bebee, I remember a mixed of feelings because it was something so fresh, a platform linking employees and employers for a social connection in a much more personal way than any other web I had seen...
Comments13/03/2017 #11 🐝 Fatima G. Williams"The way you decide to use to achieve your goals will be a very important factor too. In this case, beBee gives us the chance to create a professional profile in an easy and friendly way, while creating a professional network. " Love this statement @Iris Serra To think like this at 23 and understand that the ways we use to achieve our goals is vital, I'm impressed my dear. Keep exploring and learning #Stayawesome always. beBee is everything in a bundle to you , you just need o know which way to look :)13/03/2017 #7 CityVP 🐝 ManjitHi Iris, the best thing I like about your buzz is that you talk about friends and not millennials. Friends is the reality that I see on an everyday basis. I have not heard a single 20 something in my own tribe ever describe their friends as millennials, they know their names and they are connected by digital means whether it is snapchat, whatsapp, facetime or houseparty.
When we are talking about friends we are talking about names and faces that we know and not people. Technologies that make connection simple and direct are welcome and technologies that cannot get out of the mentality of placing people in containers, will be eventually be replaced by systems that treat relationships as sacred.
So when the people at LinkedIn actually made things more difficult around groups, if there is a simpler alternative, then I will pursue it. BeBee is a nice hub and it is adaptable to my needs. The simplicity here is great.
The jobs feature will probably get better over time but when it comes to jobs that is currently actually a strength of the LinkedIn system and I have actually seen roles that feel pretty tempting to apply for. The point is finding a job is not what I do every weekend if I have one, so the service that commands my attention will serve the various adaptive needs I have any given week. That is where beBee is a home run for me.
Small group interactions is still the chief challenge for me and I would use Slack, except it is difficult to get new people to use it and Slack focuses on being everything rather than simple. For the everyday learning journey I follow, beBee has proven to be brilliant. If I get a job through beBee that is for me a bonus.13/03/2017 #3 Ken BoddieI'm glad you remembered us, Iris, and that you find the beBee platform easy to use for your professional purposes. Being an affinity based hive system, however, beBee offers much more! We have so many prolific writers and poets who love to interact on every subject under the sun. We love to have new blood and stimulation. Why not also try a few non-work related hives like Café beBee and let your friends know?13/03/2017 #2 David B. GrinbergThank you @Iris Serra for sharing your important insights as a Millennial and part of the a new generation of leadership. Your valuable feedback about beBee is appreciated by all on this platform. Keep buzzing here and inviting your friends to help grow this platform. I'm sharing this on three big hives, "College" and "Students" and "beBee in English." I'm also following you.
Best wishes, David, beBee ambassador USA (one of many)

Comments10/03/2017 #5 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#4 Note what is written for Snapchat - "Stories"
Personal Story is HUGE.
Narrative rather than brand is the way of the 21st Century tribe. because It is more encompassing and relevant to 21st Century life whether that is work, home or play.
Marketing is a 20th Century invention and "personal brand" is a good word for marketers to use, but the 21st Century is "conversation" or in actual Cluetrain Manifesto words :
"MARKETS ARE CONVERSATIONS"
That is human voice.10/03/2017 #1 CityVP 🐝 ManjitThe power here is link by association and take one's rightful seat in the digital hierarchy. Then the irony becomes that the more people challenge you why you are in that group, the more you become a part of that group. Our education system does not drive massive competencies or abilities in reflective thinking, critical thinking or creative thinking, it drives branded thinking and what ignites the fire of that brand is group-think and a society where media and corporate power has become the Divine Right of Kings. Once we realize this, we can sit back, relax and smile - irony is amusing.

Comments02/03/2017 #36 David B. Grinberg#35 Gert, I just tweeted this blog post and pinned to my Twitter home page for easy RTs https://twitter.com/DBGrinberg I also thought of a few more reasons to add:
21) Leverage the “Live Buzz” video streaming app, exclusive to beBee, to promote your blogging and extend your reach.
22) beBee shares content on Producer blog posts on Twitter, Facebook and other social platforms to maximize your message.
23) Boost your online presence and SEO (so your blogs can easily be found in a Google key word search, for instance).
24) Drive more traffic to your standalone personal/professional blog real estate (WordPress, etc.) and website.

We're most definitely off to a good start, as more bloggers appear to Bee BEEcoming Bees."02/03/2017 #33 David B. GrinbergWow, Gert, this is brilliant buzz indeed! I echo the sentiments of all those below. I love how your points capture the essence and beauty of Producer, very nice. I will share this broadly via cross-channel pollinating, of course. In fact, I believe Producer has a one-year birthday/anniversary soon. Is that right @Javier 🐝 beBee, what's the date is went live? I fondly recall the first honey I produced back in April 2016 -- and it's been all sweetness since that time.
Also, Gert, regrets for being late on seeing this buzz, thanks very much for tagging me (that darn day job tends to get in the way sometimes, you know, the one that pays my bills. Otherwise, I would BEE the proverbial starving writer).
Buzz on Gert. Let's all make 2017 the year of producing the best honey yet. We're most definitely off to a good start, as more bloggers appear to Bee BEEcoming Bees from all the new buzz and faces I've noticed.02/03/2017 #25 Deb 🐝 HelfrichPerfectly pulled together list, @Gert Scholtz. This is one I am definitely going to put on my tweet rotation. The value proposition for blogging on beBee cannot be undersold. Which brings me to another very KEY benefit:
I am going to re-highlight what @Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza 🐝 in comment #2 said:
beBee as a company and many individual bees will cross-pollinate your work & your personal profile across all the established channels. It is the best kind of free PR. Mutually beneficial sharing.
Anyone who feels unheard in the vastness of the internet simply needs to try these hives.
We accept and celebrate all global voices.

This is a refrigerator door story where it should be printed out and displayed on the refrigerator door as an inspiring read to start the day. Rock on!27/02/2017 #53 Gert Scholtz@Juan Imaz Thank you Juan for telling more of how you grew up and of the formative people and events in your life. What I find most striking from the post and photo's is how you celebrate the mountains you climb, with family, friends and colleagues. Thank you @Mamen 🐝 Delgado for a fantastic interview!27/02/2017 #51 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#50 Dear Bill, I recognize from your comment that you understand this absolutely and more importantly the importance of understanding this. One of the worst things I learned from visiting an alcoholic anonymous meeting was worse than the stories of abuse that led many to drink away their pain, it was the few geniuses in the room whose pain was that they did not see their alcoholism related to capability and potential they never got to express.
Instead of understanding this linkage with their own capability and potential, they put the blame upon themselves that they had failed, when the reality is that it is a society and systems of work that failed to recognize their capability and to show them that they were normal in a crazy professional system. Our very work systems continue to be a great thief of human potential.
In these few geniuses drowned in their sorrow and darkness, all their craziness and drunken existence was in actuality massive potential with no outlet, where brilliance was raped by daily attacks of boredom and where this massive inner conflict was being expressed in a prison of hidden and ultimately lost human potency. A potential that simply exploded into something else - a life caged within itself - one that should have been virtuous, but now in revolved in the death-throes of a viscous cycle.
How is it that in what we cite as a century of innovative development that we lose people whose gifts we may never see or worse use up whatever innovation they had and not recognize them for this contribution, leaving them on a scrap-heap?27/02/2017 #50 Bill Stankiewicz, 🐝 Brand Ambassador@CityVP 🐝 Manjit: Hi CityVP #49 : I do agree with your recap here, " Fight alone is good, but one must learn is the flow in that fight. " I was fortunate to meet Steve Jobs early in my career, that will be another buzz of honey to post. Leaders of companies that are on the cutting edge like Amazon, Jeff Bezos & others do need at times need to have good mentors to help them to scale the business & succeed in business. I can remember working for a Stephen Dukker in Chicago that started a mail order company later that became the 3rd largest mfg. of pcs., called eMachines. I have been fortunate to have worked with some cool people like Jim Crane who started EGL Logistics, later sold to CEVA Logistics & 2 years later is now Chairman of Crane Worldwide & he owns the Houston Astros. Great talet at the top at times do need to have great mentors also. Best regards, Bill Stankiewicz, Supply Chain Executive, www.savannahsupplychain.com , Phone 1.404.750.3200, any bee can call me 24 x 7 :~))27/02/2017 #49 CityVP 🐝 ManjitWhat this interview shows me is why Javier and Juan are so good for each other, they complement each other like yin-yang. This is the same yin-yang I saw in the relationship of the founders of Hewlett-Packard, where William Hewlett is to David Packard, what Javier is to Juan. I see it in the relationship of Serge Bryn and Larry Page they too complemented each other.
The question that is important to me is challenge and fight and here Arnold Schwarzenegger is different from Oprah Winfrey. There respective fight is different, there respective challenge is different but both succeed in their respective worlds because they married challenge with capability. There experiences are different from Peewee Herman and Kaitlyn Jenner because each of these people's capabilities are different and when I look at Nelson Mandela and Mother Teresa again their fight is defined by the capability of their mind and their ability to carry challenge.
How we know what someone's capability and thought time horizon is depends on our ability to discern different capabilities and then from that discernment - relate it to what we find in the way people express themselves.
When Steve Jobs first went into business with Woz, his first break with Woz came when Jobs began to be mentored by people who he thought knew business. They did know business but at a level of capability that was not world changing and that was more fight vs flight than a business they could scale to global level.
With these people Jobs was not equipped to recognize that it informed his behaviour and when he hit the wall with his board, he had lost the company he founded. Second time around he chose mentors with broad vision like Packard and Bob Noyce . Packard and Noyce mentored him from major hurt to turnaround hero. Fight alone is good, but one must learn is the flow in that fight.27/02/2017 #45 Preston 🐝 Vander Ven@Mamen 🐝 Delgado I first want to thank you for this interview. @Juan Imaz Thanks for sharing your story. This love your system you shared. Your STEP 1 AND STEP 7 stood out to me the most. When I began on my journal, I had no clarity of my goals. Since I did not know what I truly wanted it was hard to create a working plan. I found for me, that I just needed to put my self in Action Mode, and associate with other People I wanted to be like. While I was in my movement, I had help finding what I really wanted, allowing me to me to your STEP 2.
