How to Keep Your Team Creatively Inspired

The Huffington Post - 5 Nov 2015 03:13
How to Keep Your TeamOne of the biggest challenges CMOs face is ensuring that their teams continue to deliver fresh thinking for their brands. Though many brands lean heavily on their agency partners for great creative,... this is a skill that should never be entirely outsourced. Even if the extent of the creative skills you want in brand managers is for them to simply recognize great creative when they see it, they will be ill-equipped to do so if they aren't regularly flexing those muscles. Depending on the size of your team or company culture, these strategies can help shake things up and set your team on a path to greater creative thinking: 1. Inspiration missions: Doing the same thing day in and day out can breed complacency and stale ideas. Encourage time away from desks and screens with inspiration...

How to learn a new language,If you had hours of free time every day and thousands of dollars to spend on tutors and classes, of course you could learn a new language.  Unfortunately, that's not the situation most adults... find themselves in. As a result, many people assume they've got no chance of ever mastering a foreign tongue. But that's where they're wrong. Just ask opera singer Gabriel Wyner, who achieved fluency in four languages — Italian, German, French, and Russian — in the span of just a few years. (He's currently learning more.) In his book "Fluent Forever," Wyner shares the techniques that helped him maximize his time and resources on the route to polyglotism.

How To Keep Customers' TrustIn a digital age, companies must earn their customers’ trust. The thoughtless click of the “agree” box isn’t an agreement in any meaningful sense. It may protect... companies from legal harm; reputational harm is another matter. Users may not have read the agreements, but many know acceptable behavior. The attitudes and preferences expressed in our recent survey of more than 900 U.S. consumers underscore the trust issue. Most survey respondents know their data is being used in one way or another and that it has become a currency. In this infographic, we look at  how companies can keep their customers' trust while learning from their information.

How to Be Happy When Things Aren't Going Your Way

The Huffington Post - 5 Nov 2015 05:03
How to Be Happy When ThingsAmbitious people have drive. Drive is a deep motivation to have a better life, do bigger things and achieve all you desire. Drive makes you do stuff. And that's good. You make progress by doing stuff.... But here on planet Earth, you've surely discovered by now that stuff doesn't always work out how you want it to.

Not the same things (that would be insanity), but different things; all along knowing many of the things you do may not work out how you want. This part stops a lot of folks.

The 22 unhealthiest,The Legatum Institute, a London basedthink-tank released its annual Prosperity Index this week. The index is a massive survey which ranks 142 countries in terms of their so called... "prosperity". Prosperity may mostly be used to talk about money, but the Legatum Institute thinks that there is more to it than that. It takes into account 89 different variables, ranging from indicators like a country's unemployment rate, all the way to asking citizens how much political freedom feel they have. The data is then broken down into eight sub indexes — economy, entrepreneurship and opportunity, governance, education, health, safety and security, personal freedom, and social capital — each one is given a score, and the prosperity of countries is calculated.
