Q9: What if your company does not foster social collaboration? What can you do to change this?
Start small and screenshot the small wins to show value and build a portfolio of awesomeness.. #ScreenshotAwesomeness
Look for a new job? That company is going down! :)
A9; Update your resume.
A9 Just do it on your own, Look at how Comcast did it or scoble, be the first, take initiative @IBMSocialBiz
Do what you can, where you are. Do it now. Don't study it, or think about it, or kick it upstairs. Just act.
Invest in your personal brand and digital footprint as that's the new resume! RT @MarkSBabbitt: A9; Update your resume.
A9 been there done that as well @JimCanto and yes, move on to someone that gets it
My coauthor's point, "Update your resume?" I hope employers are listening in. The top talent has the most options. They leave first.
Your personal brand depends on your willingness to embrace the Social Age. Lead by example. Start a trend.
A9 will initiate the change and see what happens
@MarkSBabbitt Wait...what?!? What's a resume?? I fell right in that little trap. Ha.
Educate your leadership. Define the ROI and provide case studies that support your goals. See what your competitors are doing.
If change was easy, anyone could do it. Lead the way.
Not working for a social brand.. Start with these tips: http://www.slideshar...

Take the initiative to change by using your own skills to improve the companies social collaboration
Often by showing the big wigs what social is capable of, how it can help the company by helping your team, ears perk up.
A9 one problem is social shows your true personality. What, as bill cosby said, you are an Ahole? Work with it, there are people that like that in their teams. @IBMSocialBiz
@calliensor If I have to "sell" them the value of social... I'm with the wrong company. IMO
Do it yourself! If your company isn't on board with #socbiz, they're probably not savvy enough to stop you from adopting your own sociz tools!
A9: Try to get buy-in for social by showing the ROI and be a catalyst for the change. If rebuffed repeatedly it is time to move on as life is too short.
Any company that will not collaborate is looking to shun innovation... Not cool.
@MarkSBabbitt Good point Mark I'm listening
Do NOT wait for permission. Go social. Track your progress. Show quantified results.
Sometimes just starting to do the right thing yourself and with colleagues is enough - eventually they'll get the message. If not, it's your choice as to what you do next.
RT @jill_rowley: We're living in the Age of the Customer; no longer Age of the Seller. Customers have choice & voice #SellerBeware
RT @jcufaude: This. RT @skap5: Collaboration isn't reaching across silos 4 something U need, its recombining capabilities to create new value. #SocBizChat
Collaboration creates an opportunity for employees to share their ideas, good and bad. Some of those bad ideas could turn into great ones using collaboration.
Demonstrate the business value to offset the perception by some that social is trivial and frivolous.
I disagree @LindsaySkarda thet are not shunning innovation, just not being receptive to outside information. Different items. And it is not black and white. Look at Apple, no one blogs, tweets, tec.. @IBMSocialBiz
@MariaWinans Love that Maria... The good and bad ideas being shared have so much value in building teams!
Show them how it can be effective with qualitative results based on what other people are doing
@iSocialFanz Totally agree that is why a great and easy customer experience is huge!
A9 As @iSocialFanz @calliensor and @tedcoine said, demonstrate ROI to show executives why #social is important
@LotusEvangelist Interesting. would like to hear more about Apple behavior...
@LotusEvangelist That may be true. But does that mean that they are not socially collaborating internally?
@MariaWinans The greatest inventions were created by leveraging old or bad ideas, and adding that additional "idea/concept" that made it take off! Social collaboration allows innovation like this to happen much faster!
You can look it up, try to find anything beyond videos ever posted by Apple anyone @Korenlis
Also once upon a time, RIM was VERY against it all. May have helped killed them too. @Korenlis
Maybe they are, maybe they are not. I don't think they do it as much as people would think @LindsaySkarda
@LotusEvangelist Agree to Disagree. :)
@LindsaySkarda that's fine. Remember if Jobs didn't like it, nothing was green lighted. Not very collaborative
