De España me traje un libro de Damián Frontera, llamado “El Arte de dirigir empresas” El estímulo incesante, donde cuenta la historia de su carrera profesional en un empresa que en sus comienzos fue una empresa familiar de Chacinados y que luego pasó a manos de una multinacional norteamericana y en otro momento a una multinacional alemana, hasta ser adquiridos finalmente por Campofrío. Realmente atrapante y muy interesante la historia.
Pero rescato como para compartir y reflexionar en decálogo que el propone de ¿qué es dirigir?.
Si tuvieramos que definir la palabra Dirigir diríamos que es hacer todo lo necesario para alcanzar los objetivos con la colaboración de otras personas. La clave en esto es ser eficaz haciendo hacer a otras personas. Leer más “¿Qué es dirigir?”

Have you ever come across people that you’ve tried calling and emailing for hours but failed to receive any response from them? However, when you text them, they almost immediately reply.
To be honest, I’m not that big on texting; with an average of about 300 plus texts per month. This number is miniscule compared to my 19 year old sister who averages about 1,000 plus texts per month. Compared to her fellow friends, she is not unusual at all.
According to Nielsen Mobile, in the first quarter of 2009, the average U.S teenager made and received an average of 191 phone calls and sent and received 2,899 text messages every month. By the third quarter, the number of texts jumped to a whopping 3,146 messages per month. This is equivalent to more than 10 text messages per hour.
At the beginning of 2007, these numbers were only 255 phone calls and 435 text messages. Preteens on the other hand, receive about 1,146 texts every month. Leer más ““Text me, don’t call me.” Sounds familiar?”
This morning, I stumbled upon this rather interesting post by Inc. on the steps to make money on Twitter. It’s refreshing to see clearly thought through strategies being posted rather than just telling someone to do this and that. Leer más “Online Media Gazette”

The next table of analyst tweeters will be published very soon. If you were not included in the previous list and believe you should be mentioned please let me know.
Note – all calculations will be done via TweetLevel on Friday 18th February. Even though this tool is dynamic, I will only be able to report a static list on this blog.
Algorithm and Methodology
Following – Twitter lists the number of people each user follows. The tendency for most celebrities is to only follow a few individuals. The more people that someone follows, there is an increased likelihood of them actively participating in conversations with the community instead of simply broadcasting to it. Following ranges were determined (i.e. more than 20, more than 30, etc.) and each range was assigned a number (0 to 30) that was used as part of the algorithm. Note: Twitter opened its API to TweetLevel so that data could be sourced easily and quickly to benefit the user. Leer más “Top analyst tweeters (coming soon)”

Here are things that you can now avoid:
- The annual review
- The annual sales conference
- The big product launch
- The grand opening of a new branch
- Drop dead one-shot negotiation events
The reasons? Well, they don’t work. They don’t work because big events leave little room for iteration, for trial and error, for earning rapport. And the biggest reason: frequent cheap communication is easier than ever, and if you use it, you’ll discover that the process creates far more gains than events ever can.
The top six social media tips to know before you leave the office.
As social media use continues to grow – particularly throughout the business world – it can be difficult for companies to identify where best to focus their limited resources. After all, there are hundreds of social networking sites around today, and few companies have the bandwidth to properly engage on all of them.
With over 80% of Americans involved on at least one social networking site, the importance of corporate social media engagement cannot be understated. When correctly utilized, social media provides unparalleled opportunities for reaching new audiences, strengthening relationships with current customers and supporters, and building goodwill should you ever need to draw on it during a crisis.
Before diving into social media, every company needs to carefully outline its goals and consider which platforms are best for achieving their desired results. This week’s Six @ Six outlines six of the most important questions each company needs to ask when considering a social media presence.
