Benevolent Capitalism 4 Day Class by Gary Douglas, Steven & Chutisa Bowman, Dr Dain Heer in Venice, Italy

Houston, USA, May-26-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — Business innovator, Gary Douglas warns, “You cannot afford to ignore the demand for benevolent business.”

International speaker and vocal advocate of Benevolent Capitalism, Mr. Douglas is concerned that many individuals and businesses are stuck in an outdated idea of capitalism, and are failing to adapt their practices to better meet the new consumer mindset:

• 96% of consumers believe it is important for companies to have good social and environmental policies. (Digital Reason)
• 33% of all consumers actively seek out and purchase goods because of responsible corporate practices. (Unilever)
• According to the Unilever CCO, “This research confirms that sustainability isn’t a nice-to-have for businesses. In fact, it has become an imperative.”

Mr. Douglas is teaming up with some of the world’s leading Benevolent Capitalism experts to bring the concept to business leaders and other individuals around the world, through a series of public and live-streamed seminars.

“Capitalism has been relegated to ‘where’s my share of the pie?’ and ‘how I can get what I need when I need it’. This is a very destructive way of manipulating capitalism”, Douglas explains. “Consumers have noticed, and are becoming more particular in their spending choices, as a result.”

“I hear a lot of people say ‘Can capitalism really be benevolent?’ but this is because of the limited points of view business has been operating from recently”, Douglas says. “When capitalism was first created back in the 1700’s, it was supposed to serve the masses; to create more for all of us. In fact, capitalism is really about how to create more money and more possibility in our life.”

“When we return to that viewpoint of more possibility and choice, it becomes a different narrative”, he adds. “Now is the time for all of us to recognize the power of capitalism and how it can be a catalyst for positive change and different possibilities.”

BUSINESS OWNERS: KEEP THIS CRISIS CONTROL DIRECTIVES IN YOUR FILES: LESSONS FROM UNITED AIRLINES

San Diego, CA, 2017-Apr-18 — /EPR MANAGEMENT NEWS/ — Every company has a crisis from time to time. If the company is small or medium in size, one crisis can take it off the map. Here are some directives that will get you through your next one; share it with your senior staff and don’t read it ‘after’ the event occurred, this should be in memory lest you compete with United for news space.

1. TRY TO RESOLVE IT WITH SOMETHING THAT COMES EASILY TO YOU, THAT YOUR CUSTOMER VALUES. Whatever business you are in, you get your goods or services wholesale (free flights, even on a standby basis). Try to resolve the problem by offering something that has a high perceived value but is not so dear to you that it creates a large loss. The customer is ‘not’ always right, but the customer can write something about you on Yelp and, as it hurts you more to respond, they will ‘seem’ right to the public, who will only read one side of it all.

2. AVOID CALLING THE POLICE (of any kind) FOR A NON-CRIMINAL INCIDENT. Once you try to make the police force your own, and they step in with people who are trained to control others, you will have alienated your client past the point of no return. Worse yet, if the person flails and touches a police officer, he or she now gets a criminal record thanks to you and believe me, you will pay dearly for that. As stupid goes, this is the most stupid move a company can use against a client when the company is not at threat. A disagreement is never resolved when one party is fully armed and the other is afraid of arrest.

3. SHOW THEM WHO THE MANAGEMENT REALLY IS, AND DEMONSTRATE COMPASSION FOR THE SITUATION. If your story makes it to social media, the first response from the CEO should be an instant public apology. The public needs to think of him or her as a nice, warm, empathetic individual who just had the bad luck of hiring someone who had no common sense. Mistakes happen. The public forgives you. If, on the other hand the CEO makes a bad impression or supports his or her staff, regardless of their poor choices, then people will fear the company and avoid it all costs. Do you understand?

4. DO NOT ANGER A CUSTOMER AND THEN ACCUSE HIM OR HER WITH BEING BELIGIRENT. This is a common tactic used by the police to arrest persons. Lawyers use it at trial all the time. You say something inflammatory, the person reacts, and you try to show the jury how unreasonable they are. This is dangerous behavior. Unless you have the powers of arrest, you shouldn’t do something to further anger your customer. If you have an angry customer, you should do everything you can to get them to a reasonable and calm state. The easiest way to do so: Offer something up front, then dine or have drinks with him or her in a casual manner and work out the rest. Using this system you may create the most loyal customer (who refers you business) when you are finished. People understand errors occur: it’s how you handle them.

5. IF YOU CAN’T SAY ANYTHING EMPATHETIC KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT. A client/customer may upset you. They are in a heated state due to what happened. Don’t get offended. Many of them don’t even mean what they say in the heat of the moment. If you can avoid internalizing the person’s comments, try to mentally experience the situation from their point of view. The easiest way to do it is not to think of them, but to think of one of your parents, your spouse, or your best friend having gone through this and how you would respond. Now do this with your client.

6. BE CAREFUL WITH YOUR WORDS AND POSITIONING OF YOUR FIRM.
It’s easy to say and do what you want when you have a golden parachute. However, a corporation’s reputation is largely based on the philosophies of the CEO when it comes to customer service. Remember the corporation took care of you and your family when you were looking for a career or opportunity. Now, it needs ‘you’. Do everything with all the integrity the company deserves, even if you have to bite your lip in doing so.

7. MAKE CONTACT WITH THE AGGRIEVED PARTY ASAP. Call the person, arrange a personal contact and work things out. Do not let it get to the media or to a lawyer’s office. Let the person hear from you and know that you care. The difference it will make is phenomenal. It does not matter that you are on vacation when it takes place or even sleeping. You are better off losing a night’s sleep than months of sleep in the future while your and you company’s reputation are in the balance. Don’t just contact the party, make this up to them. For example, in the United Airlines’ case, I would have put Dr Dao on a private jet asap, with a limousine waiting at the other end. The scenario would have turned out very differently.

8. WORK IT OUT BEFORE IT BECOMES A LAWSUIT.
If a situation is so out of control that a lawyer has been hired or litigation is threatened, resolve it immediately through opposing counsel. Negotiate and work out a settlement or understanding of some sort. Keep the settlement confidential if you have to, or be generous and go public with it; especially if you are in the wrong. The worst thing that can happen in this case is what happened with United Airlines: the lawyer was enjoying free national airtime to say what he wanted.

If a lawyer has been hired, you did not follow the rules above very well. Once the legal game is in play, in will only serve to infuriate the customer more and the legal game is all about sides. At this point, hope the party has a reasonable lawyer as you can no longer directly communicate with the person. Litigation is one of the worst diseases a company can catch, avoid it at all costs.

We hope your next crisis is averted rapidly and wish you the best!

About Me International takes aim at rising employee stress

It costs employers billions of dollars annually.

It’s been called a “global epidemic” by the United Nations’ International Labor Organization.

And it’s a source of miscommunication, employee conflicts, absenteeism, complacency, turnover, low morale, declining productivity and other workplace problems every day at organizations worldwide.

Employee stress is a growing threat to employers, and it’s a threat that is squarely in the sights of About Me International, a provider of workforce evaluation, employee engagement and leadership services.

Joe Kiedinger, president and CEO of About Me International, is leading the Green Bay-based company in its drive to guide organizations in overcoming the negative effects of employee stress.

To assist clients with managing this challenge, About Me International has created the About Me Card. This practical tool is designed to reveal each employee’s inner drive and preferred communication practices—two elements that according to Kiedinger are essential to their fulfillment and effectiveness at work.

Kiedinger says employers can use this tool to minimize if not eliminate misunderstandings and mistreatment, which often are a source of employee stress and can quickly lead to negative emotion and negative energy.

“The danger for employers is that negative energy, if left unchecked and allowed to spread, can have a debilitating impact on an organization’s creativity, innovation and productivity and ultimately impact its bottom line,” Kiedinger says. “Employees can use information from the About Me Card to effectively manage workplace interactions and relationships by literally changing negative emotion to positive energy,”

Kiedinger says that two of the main challenges for employers are to determine whether they wish to invest in solving employee stress and, if they do, how to go about it.

“In recent years, wellness programs have emerged as a way to help employees better manage their health,” Kiedinger says. “However, when it comes to the effectiveness of wellness programs in identifying, managing and overcoming employee stress as well as negative emotion and energy, there is no conclusive data that shows that these programs have a significant, positive and lasting impact on this workplace challenge.”

Richard DuBois, director of business development at About Me International, says the company is experiencing a strong response to the About Me Card.

“We are consistently hearing from employers of all kinds that they have seen enough of the destructiveness of negative emotion and want to address it,” DuBois says. “This tool gives them a practical solution that is generating proven results with organizations including small businesses and mid-size to large corporations, as well as non-profits including schools and health care facilities.”

About Me International has created a white paper, “Wellness and the workforce—are we missing the boat when it comes to managing employee stress?” which provides insights to employers on overcoming negative emotion and energy resulting from unresolved employee stress. The white paper can be downloaded at www.aboutmecard.com/whitepaper

About Me International provides assistance and training to employers with determining their employees’ inner drive and preferred communication practices to support employee engagement and leadership effectiveness. More information is available atwww.aboutmecard.com

Web Content Management Solutions Are Critical for Modern Day Business

Many organizations have hundreds to tens of thousands of pages of web content, which are becoming increasingly more critical to market competitiveness. Web content management solutions provide an efficient and effective means to make the problem of managing all of an organizations web material far more tractable.

Drupal content management systems (CMS) are open source solutions for addressing the problem of managing web content. Among the many reasons for Drupal’s success, its ability to alleviate technical staff members through the powerful and easy to use platform and its ability to integrate with pre-existing content management systems has made it a popular choice.

May, 2010 – databasepublish.com – When it comes to web content management solutions there is no silver bullet. Just as each organization has its own strategic goals and objectives, the various web content management systems on the market provide a broad spectrum of functionality and usability. As a result, it can be challenging to ensure that you are making the right selection for your organization.

For some organizations, a proprietary, out-of-the-box solution, or an out-of-the-box open source solution can work just fine. Other organizations may require varying degrees of tailoring. In either case, a web content management solutions consultant is highly recommended. Since an experienced consultant has worked with a variety of platforms and performed many implementations, that resource can help you reduce costly mistakes, f r o m product selection all the way through implementation.

With technical IT personnel liberated to focus on more technical organizational needs the content experts can directly manage blog posts, photo galleries, press releases, video, tagging, e-commerce and searching functionality. With all of these benefits, Drupal content management systems are a compelling choice.

The selection, migration, and implementation of the various web content management solutions is far less risky with the help of a qualified content management consultant. They can help to ensure that the goals of a stronger web-presence, improved website effectiveness, increased workflow efficiency, and organizational consistency are met and/ or exceeded.

A consultant that is familiar with implementing and tailoring not only Drupal content management systems but a wide-range of content management solutions can help reduce any bias that might arise f r o m a consultant who is only familiar with one type of system.

Web Content Management Solutions for the Modern Era

Sophisticated requirements demanded by organizations and the wide variety of web content management solutions on the market can create a puzzling problem for in-house personnel. This is due in part to the market differentiation of the various web content management systems and the inconsistent use of technical terms. As a result, content management consultants are typically called -in to assist in the selection process and then may be kept on to tailor and implement the resulting system.

Web Content Management Solutions for the Modern Era

Drupal content management systems (CMS) can fulfill many organizational needs. Its open source platform makes it readily customizable for a tight integration with other existing business systems.

Additionally, Drupal content management systems centralize organizational web processes while allowing multiple users to update multiple websites concurrently. This adds consistency while at the same time offering exceptional flexibility to fulfill web publishing objectives.

Similar to many other types of business systems, web content management solutions are only important to the organization if they provide value in terms of the organization’s goals. Determining which solution is the right fit for a given organization by only considering the out-of- box functionality may not lead to a satisfactory solution. However, it is often the case that some solutions, like the Drupal CMS, may be easily tailored to enhance the overall organizational workflow.

While organizations may have highly qualified IT personnel, it is often more beneficial to choose a third-party consultant that has extensive experience in tailoring and implementing a wide range of content management solutions. This choice can be extremely valuable to the organization as it can shorten the learning curve, ensure a robust and suitable solution, and guarantee a realistic and timely project schedule.

Web content management solutions like the Drupal content management systems are helping organizations take their web presence to the next level. Through the careful consideration of various products, organizations are able to tightly integrate pre-existing content management systems with a web content management system, greatly improving their overall market competitiveness.

Web Content Management System with High Reliability

Content management is playing an increasingly important role for organizations. For some organizations it is strictly due to the rising importance of a reliable and effective web presence. Drupal is a web content management tool that offers an exceptionally easy to use platform that is both incredibly powerful and reliable.

The web publishing responsibilities transition to the content experts while liberating IT personnel so they may focus on more IT related tasks.

Determining what web content management system is going to be the most reliable for a given organization can be a monumental task. Understanding the right questions to ask of vendors and assessing their ability to fit one’s current and future needs can be surprisingly challenging, even for some of the best in-house IT personnel.

As a result, several organizations choose a content management consultant not only to ensure that they obtain the right web content management tool, but also to gain additional insight as to how to fully benefit from the implemented web content management system. An experienced content management consultant can assist in all or part of the implementation process.

Some organizations are able to tailor Drupal implementations with the assistance of a qualified consultant. Drupal’s popularity among organizations is partially attributed to its customizability. Incredible efficiency can be gained by reducing web publishing cycle time and through the integration of a web content management system with a pre-existing content management system.

With the assistance of a web content management system consultant, organizations are able to combine the power of their print media content management systems with the flexibility of Drupal web content management tools. The result is far greater efficiency and reliability in the organization’s web content work flow.

This is especially true when one considers the need to migrate hundreds or thousands of web pages over to the new system. Web content management system consultants can greatly reduce the overall transition time to a new system and ensure the integrity of the migration.

Additionally, a web content management system consultant can be of great assistance in determining if a Drupal content management system is the right fit for the organization. This may be accomplished through the proper evaluation of technical requirements and administration of the request for proposals. Organizations often find that a qualified web content management system consultant is able to clarify the capabilities of the potentialweb content management systems by acting as an interpreter so each may be evaluated on a level playing field.

Oftentimes, an experienced professional’s insight can also result in increased organizational workflow. The combination of a Drupal content management solution and an experienced consultant can drastically change how an organization views content management. This is accomplished by the removal of pain-points and the addition of increased flexibility, control and integration of the web content management system.

Challenges And Solutions In Selecting A Digital Asset Management System

databasepublish.com – Digital asset management has become a center-stage issue for many organizations. With thousands of digital assets and oftentimes thousands of distribution channels, an effective and tightly integrated content management system has a strong correlation with an organization’s market competitiveness.

Challenges And Solutions In Selecting A Digital Asset Management System

Some organizations’ success relies on the support of a network of agencies and affiliates that are distributed around the world, which are responsible for promoting the products and services of that organization. The challenges that arise are many and may include the cataloging of photography and video as well as the quality assurance of consistent company branding strategies.

A digital asset management system may help in centralizing marketing efforts; however, new capabilities are often required in order to support growth. The growth may sustain a broader range of assets as well as increased flexibility for users.

A recommended course of action is to develop a content management system strategy that takes into consideration organizational needs and then matches the requirements with the appropriate vendor applications available. The concept is simple enough; however, the current state of digital asset management system products includes highly technical descriptions that can be difficult to put into layman’s terms or compare appropriately among vendors.

To compound the problem, it can be difficult to reduce the influence of vendor salesmanship when selecting a digital asset management package. As a result, several organizations choose to use a content management system consultant in order to more appropriately discern the right direction for their business. The consultant essentially bridges the gap between the vendor and the customer.

The greater the depth and breadth of knowledge of the content management consultant; including experience with web content management systems, multi-channel systems, work flow management systems, and digital asset management systems, the greater the opportunity is for the final product to meet or exceed the expectations of the organization.

The ultimate digital asset management strategy appropriately includes a request for proposal (RFP) process that is somewhat iterative. Oftentimes, proposals f r o m vendors use vendor-specific, verbose, and very technical descriptions of their products. It is up to the content management system consultant to assimilate the information, place it into layman’s terms, and normalize it for a more appropriate comparison.

This may entail additional clarification f r o m vendors to be presented in a normalized and summarized compilation for the most appropriate selection. Once the vendor finalists are distilled down, a choice can be made or a meeting can be held in order for the vendors to distinguish their products f r o m their competitors. The process helps to find the right vendor choice and assists in the determination of a more focused strategy.

Advantage in the marketplace. For the past 10 years, it has helped businesses in a wide-range of industries find the right digital asset management for them. DPCI has the professional and technical requirements necessary for consulting, providing, tailoring and completely implementing successful digital asset management system.

Leadership Failure Is Epidemic Claimed Will Marré, Leadership Development Speaker

Leadership failure is epidemic, claimed Will Marré, leadership expert and the author of a new book, Save the World and Still Be Home For Dinner (Capitol Books, Sept. 2009), at the recent Excellence in Workplace Forum in San Diego. As evidence, he pointed to the successive failures of corporate leaders and the demise or bankruptcies of companies ranging from Enron to GM as well as the bailouts of our global financial system. In his remarks, however, Marré inspired senior executives and human resource leaders to be apart from these leadership failures by embracing a new leadership framework.

Marré proposed that leadership development has been dominated by business schools over the past forty years which has led to a “dumbing down” of leadership to a set of skills and attributes. He proposed that reducing leadership to abilities such as decisiveness, discipline, vision and inspiration fail to distinguish the critical difference between Hitler and Churchill or Stalin and Roosevelt. “The core problem,” stated Marré, “is that we’ve abandoned the first principle of leadership which answers the question, what am I trying to accomplish? If we are going to have a sustainable future leaders must have a noble intent, a purpose beyond self-interest.”

Leaders want to make a change in how they do business. A recent global survey by McKinsey and Company reveals that over 70 percent of global leaders say they need to improve their performance in solving social and environmental problems but are not sure what to do.

Research reported by Ashridge Business School reports that 76 percent of CEOs and senior executives believe that it is important that senior executives have the necessary knowledge and skills to respond to trends like climate change, resource scarcity and doing business in emerging markets marked by poverty, corruption and human rights violations. Alarmingly, however, only 8 percent believe that these knowledge and skills are currently being developed very effectively by either their own organizations or by business schools more broadly.

Marré has the answer for this leadership development dilemma, his new leadership framework he calls REALeadership. He stated, “If we are going to avoid the massive potholes in our future – resource depletion, environmental collapse, trade wars, massive unemployment, market disruptions and corporate extinction – we need leadership of a different kind, now.” Marré’s REALeadership framework creates a new, three-dimensional business model that “REALeaders” must take on in order to thrive in the coming decade. To find out more about REALeadership, visit Marré’s blog, CSR and the 4 Ideals of Socially Responsible Leadership.

Marré truly believes that REALeadership is the only leadership for a thriving future. In “The Future of Work: Engaging Employees to Drive Innovation” Marré discusses how leadership in the 21st century workplace based on creating a sustainable future drives employee engagement and innovation based on shared values where value is added to both the future and the bottom line. Furthermore, in his leadership development workshops, Marré shows organizations how a future of environmental sustainability, increased world health, and educational and economic opportunity create the greatest business opportunity in history.

About Will Marré:
Will is an Emmy Award-winning writer, leadership speaker and coach. He is the co-founder and former president of the Covey Leadership Center (The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People) and CEO of the REALeadership Alliance where he helps leaders identify, communicate and implement new socially strategic business models. Will has been a personal leadership coach and advisor to multi-billion dollar global companies such as Disney and Johnson & Johnson. For the past 10 years he has focused on making corporate social responsibility strategic. His book, Save the World and Still Be Home for Dinner will be released in fall 2009.
