Last year we experimented with a ning platform, a twitter account and a few videos. In ning, there is a new application which is called member-mix. Last year we've experimented with various social media to improve a sharing event for about 100 participants (for more details see my older blogpost ).

Command-and-Control Leadership vs. People-Centered Leadership

The Performance Improvement Blog

Command-and-control leadership remains pervasive throughout business, government, and nonprofit organizations. Given the large number of books, articles, blogs , and nings written about employee engagement and people-centered management, you’d think that the command-and-control style of leadership had gone   the way of the ivory-billed woodpecker. Business leaders today are exposed to every management theory and best practice.
