Share The Bad News

Eric Jacobsen Blog

Naturally, it's much easier to share good news with your employees, but it's perhaps even more important to share the bad news. And it's only when they have the full picture -- the good news and the bad news -- that they can rally together with you to brainstorm possible solutions. Don't give them a false sense of the situation by sharing only good news. You'll gain their respect when they hear the bad news directly from you. Bad News Leadership

Facebook Updates News Feed (Again)

NCE Social Media

Facebook has updated its News Feed algorithm again. Almost one third of people use Facebook to get their news. Personally, I don’t like the News Feed default and prefer the All Friends feed. What does this mean for you? It means that they want more people to know what is going on around them…and by pushing more stories with the most comments, the most shares, and the most likes to the top of your feed, they believe you will want to see that story.
