How Does the Workplace Culture Affect Performance?

How Does the Workplace Culture Affect Performance?

The workplace is somewhere that we will invest a lot of years in our lives. We start out as entry-level employees and climb up that ladder of promotion and success. Or you’re someone who gathers experience from different companies to boost your resume. The thing is, we will spend most of our adult lives working, and the workplace culture is something that we cannot avoid. Workplace culture is the one of the most important things a leader or CEO must manage. If not, there is a tendency will be someone who will stir up a different culture that might be detrimental to the overall productivity and performance of the company. More than the revenue and reputation, CEOs must closely look into their employees and the culture that they are in. Amazon has been under fire for the past weeks and months for their alleged workplace culture. People have been coming out and testifying how they are treated, and almost all of these stories are negative. Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos denied these attacks and said that they have zero tolerance on such kind of attitude in their company. He may know it or not, but some CEOs tend to be blind on what their workplace culture really is. When his presence is in the office, people would tend to mask themselves for them to not lose their jobs, but go back to who they really are when he is not there anymore. Michael Stallard presents three kinds of cultures (he describes them rather as subcultures) in the workplace on a relational perspective: control, indifference, and connection. In control, people tend...

Fixing a Bad First Impression is Possible. Here’s How.

Fixing a Bad First Impression is Possible. Here’s How.

Having a good first impression is important in building relationships, whether it’s  in the office, classroom, or with friends. Unfortunately, most of the time, many of us fail to deliver that good first impression. We could have been nervous or not confident at that time so we could not express ourselves. This leaves the person a sense of doubt and aversion with you, which can last for a long time. All of us had some bad first impressions from others. Who hasn’t? But the good news is it can be fixed. First impressions may be fast, powerful and lasting, but it can change and evolve through time, interaction, and a few other factors. Here are some tips you can do to fix that bad first impression. Be convinced that first impressions can change. You may have started bad in that relationship with your boss or colleague, but through multiple interactions, impressions can and will change. Your perception for each other will grow the longer you know each other. Never let a bad first impression be an excuse for you to not invest in that relationship. Change happens when you first believe in yourself that it will happen. Do everything to make that change, whether big or small. After convincing yourself, you act on it. Do even the smallest things to increase the person’s trust. Remember that the smallest things are the most neglected yet the most important in fixing that bad impression. It signifies humility and value towards that person. And through time, you will build a comfortable atmosphere with that colleague. Be consistent in these things. Ask the person for advice. By...
Does Being Overweight Affect Your Career?

Does Being Overweight Affect Your Career?

Do my colleagues take me less seriously since I’ve gained weight? This question is something I’ve asked myself in the darkest corners of my mind. Ever since I gained about 30 pounds over my “happy weight,” I’ve known that I’m not portraying myself in the best light possible. This feeling of apprehension over how I present myself does certainly bleed into what I do professionally, especially when it comes to speaking at conferences. There’s an article that came out a few months ago that has been sticking in my mind ever since I read it. It was an interview that Business Insider did with Michelle Mone, a British multi-millionaire who owns several of her own companies. She claims that after she lost weight, her businesses became more successful. Here line of reasoning is this: “How I look reflects on my brand,” Mone told Business Insider in an interview…”I can’t go out there with greasy hair, spots, no makeup, and [as a] size 22. A brand can’t sing from the rooftops if the owner is walking around looking horrendous,” Mone said. While perception certainly differs from person to person, there has been some studies to back up the suspicion that people are going to judge or stereotype you based on your weight. This is a proven fact, and one that affects men just as much as women: Just take a look at this WSJ article from 2010: Separate studies of 11,253 Germans and 12,686 U.S. residents led by Timothy A. Judge of the University of Florida found very thin women, weighing 25 pounds less than the group norm, earned an average $15,572...

I’m Speaking at #Pubcon 2015!

I’m happy to announce that I’ll be speaking at Pubcon again this year! I’m covering Video and Podcast Marketing on Thursday with Greg Jarboe, Robert Riggs, and myself presenting. Because I’ve run the Marketing Nerds podcast for almost the entire last year (the first year of its existence), I feel like I’ve learned so much about podcasting. Video has also been something we are experimenting with with Search Engine Journal’s webinar series and we’ve even tried native video on Facebook. The description of our Pubcon session is, Optimizing for multimedia is vastly different from text-based content optimization. This session will look at the special problems and opportunities of optimizing for audio, video, flash, and other embedded content. We will look at listings for various sources, including traditional search engines and multimedia engines, such as YouTube. Each presenter will have 10-15 minutes to do their presentation, followed by a Q&A. Here’s a working outline of what I’ll be covering: “Your Media Guests and Audience Are Your Best Social Network,” where I discuss tips and strategies on how to best leverage your podcast/video guests’ networks to get more exposure for your content. The other part will focus on making social sharing and outreach as easy as possible for your audience, so they will become impassioned promoters of your content. Want to Come?

How to Improve Your #Marketing With Hashtags

How to Improve Your #Marketing With Hashtags

Hashtags have become an integral part of our modern culture. Twitter introduced this as a keyword search feature in 2009. Now, it has become very popular in social media and it can be seen in people’s posts everywhere. It acts as a conversation starter and unifies people who talk about the same idea. Also, it organizes similar content, enabling people to search similar ideas using the keywords in the hashtag. Companies have utilized and optimized the use of hashtags in their engagement in social media. Simply Measured, a Social Analytics company, made a study on the world’s top 100 brands (Interbrand 100) and their Twitter activity. They found out that 67% of their tweets contain at least one hashtag. Through this, they let their consumers create a community centered in their product and effectively increase the scope of their market. It cannot be denied that hashtags have become relatively useful in marketing. If you are an entrepreneur who is just starting out or you have been in the business for a long time, you cannot ignore social media marketing as a large part of your market can be found online. Here are some tips to improve your exposure and engagement with hashtags: When creating a brand hashtag, use either your company name, your most popular product, or a tag line that you want your consumers to be familiar with. Make sure people can remember your brand hashtag with ease. You can also use this to interact with consumers’ inquiries. Monitor trending hashtags and use them to creatively market your product. Find out what your market is talking about. Use common...
