How to Build Your Presence on Social Media as a Leader or Organisation
On today’s show I’m looking forward to talking to you about something that is a constant conversation with many of the leaders and businesses I work within, which is the presence as a leader and/or an organisation on social media.
I’ve been asked by Michael Howard – Director of Human Capital International (with whom I’ve had the pleasure of working with, along with some of his team members many years ago), to shed some light on how I've built my branding for my business, and my personal brand.
In this week's episode, I share how to build your presence on social media, including:
Ideas and tips and tricks on how I’m building my presence on social media;
How whether you’re an entrepreneur, a leader, or a business owner, it’s no longer optional to have a social media presence; and
How to leverage Linkedin, Facebook and Twitter, social media scheduling tools, and much more.
I have a passion for developing the capabilities of leaders.
Working with individuals and teams, often in a workshop environment, it is very satisfying to foster and hone skills that contribute to personal and organisational success.
My time working in the financial services sector was pivotal my own leadership development. I thrived on the challenges as I moved through several different areas – Learning and Development, Product Management, Business Planning, Sales and Regional Management.
I still draw on my corporate experience most days; it gave me a great understanding of the issues that organisations and business leaders are challenged with every day.
Humility: An important quality to becoming a Limitless Leader™ – Part 2
Following on from Part 1 of our interview with Maria Palazzolo, CEO of GS1 Australia, we continue this week with part 2.
To recap, Maria Palazzolo joined the organisation 35 years ago as a return-to-work mother after taking the previous 6 years off to have her children and be a full time mum in their preschool years.
With just a few people in the business and limited understanding of the business and the industry they operated in, Maria and her team have been able to build GS1 into a now 170-strong team, with a membership of 20K Australian companies, which they are proud to serve every single day with their barcoding and scanning technologies.
In this week's episode, Maria shares:
The one mistake in her career that has been the most valuable lesson;
The single trait a company needs to attract and retail talent;
The leader that has most impacted her, and why?
Why ‘listening’ is such an important skill.
And, finishing the show with our Quick Trivia questions:
What is your favourite word?
What sound or noise do you love?
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Maria joined GS1 Australia 35 years ago as a return to work mother after taking the previous 6 years off to have children and be a full time Mum in their preschool years.
The organisation consisted of only a couple of people and was in a business that she did not understand or have any previous knowledge.
Known then as the Australian Product Number Association it had been set up by industry to introduce into Australia the very misunderstood technology of bar codes and scanning at the point of sale in supermarkets.
Today of course, it would be hard to find any supermarket, or retail store, warehouse or hospital, or thousands of other different environments where bar codes are not present. Every consumer, patient, worker is in some way positively impacted by the information that is accessed by scanning the humble bar code.
Today GS1 Australia has 170 staff, and a membership of 20 thousand Australian companies that we are proud to serve every single day.
