Flipping the Switch: How Reverse Mentorship Can Drive Social
Tue, Mar 31st 2015 1:20p   Colleen Burns
It’s no secret that valuable mentoring relationships can have a formative impact on one’s career, vision of success, and performance within a company. Mentors are critical to networks, huge reservoirs of resources, and a perfect complement to the ambitious. For these reasons and more, companies are investing in formal and informal mentoring programs, typically pairing up knowledgeable and experienced practitioners with younger employees who are eager to learn.

The Thread of Social Media and Real-Time Data

Kudos TED Talks, kudos! This past week I had the pleasure of attending their annual event, TED2015 in Vancouver, BC and nobody walked out of there without having their mind blown. Never before had I been a part of such a who’s who list of thought leaders, social advocates, political figures, artists…the list goes on. Although the speakers’ topics varied greatly, there was one common theme that could’ve easily gone unnoticed: business as it used to be don

Anyone who has experienced the SXSW Interactive festival in Austin, TX knows that there is an almost unmanageable number of events, parties and sessions to choose from — and you can’t possibly attend them all … so when IBM hosted the New Way to Startup Pitch Party last Monday night, I was delighted to see a room completely filled with excited young entrepreneurs, tech enthusiasts and unfamiliar faces. It’s no secret that Big Blue has been doing some

How To Implement The Future of Work Culture Successfully #NewWayToWork
Thu, Mar 26th 2015 10:07a   Colleen Burns
When postulating the future of work culture, we need to examine our proposed ideas and compare them to current (and proven) best practices. There will always be trends, but trends can be fads, and it’s a very expensive proposition to turn the culture of a company on a whim. Attempting to make a major changes in procedures, for example to adapt to millennial needs, may be fruitless. There will always be maturation in methodologies and conscientious planning must be implemented. Ye

IBM, Twitter and Digital Engagement
Mon, Mar 23rd 2015 10:04a   Colleen Burns
Digital engagement was a hot topic at SXSW 2015. Last week I blogged about an employee advocacy roundtable where IBM’s Amber Armstrong and others spoke of the need to trust employees to be the voice of your brand. That theme came up again in the “IBM and Twitter: The Future of Digital Engagement” panel moderated by Maria Winans, CMO, IBM Commerce, MobileFirst, Social Business and featuring guests Will Mayo, Senior Manager, Data Partnerships, Twitter; Bryan Kramer, C

How Social Business Leaders Are Shattering the Traditional Workplace

Inspiration. A powerful word that awakens our imagination and maybe even causes a bit of “what-if’ing.” Inspiration truly does come in all shapes, sizes and forms – as evident from the stories shared with us by 25 Global Social Business Leaders. Their inspiring stories lay the foundation that is shifting our thinking of social business as a verb, rather than a noun. Last year, on behalf of IBM, I had the pleasure of teaming with The Economist Intellig

Paco the Chihuahua is one savvy dog. On the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show on Tuesday night on ABC, Paco and Kimmel’s loveable sidekick Guillermo schooled a meeting room full of suit-and-tied corporate professionals on a New Way to Work. Speaking through dog whisperer/entrepreneurial hipster Guillermo, Paco the Canine Consultant displayed an impressive amount of business acumen for a five-pound pup as he talked—uh, barked—about the necessity for the harried execs to get
