Leading in a Social World is an unexpected look at social media through the lens of leadership. Social capital–measurable, manageable value that’s accessed and shared through social networks–has become an undeniably valuable resource for people and their organizations. But contrary to what many of us marketing people will tell you, socially connected systems reject marketing. They are communities that need nurturing, not audiences for conversions. Leading in a Social World encourages anyone who’s using the social web as a way to influence and move people that they need to stop social media marketing and build social capital–a leadership skill–instead.
James O’Toole, a Leadership Excellence Magazine Top 100 Thought Leader and author of The Enlightened Capitalists said this of Leading in a Social World: “This important–and timely–book demonstrates the potential of social media to become a powerful vehicle for creating social capital. It offers original and useful advice for the next generation of leaders in all fields whose platforms will increasingly be digital in the years to come.”
- Shed biases: When it comes to building committed communities around your brand, social media marketing data shows suspect results at best, brand-damaging results at worst. Surprised? You may need to unlearn some social media marketing biases.
- Learn a better way: Learn why some brands are successfully motivating others within social networks (and how they’re doing it).
- Elevate your approach: Learn how to use leadership acumen to build communities who give back to you, your brand, and your cause.
