Dave Gardner’s “Thank God It’s Monday” 08AUG11

“Thank God It’s Monday” is to help companies thrive!

This week’s focus: business execution

When it comes to social media, Michael Dell encourages companies to have big ears. Dell has become an exemplar in this space.’

When I was at Dell headquarters for a Customer Advisory Panel meeting, one gentleman asked, “Why should a company bother with social media?”  The answer to me was clear:  A company should only worry about social media if it cares about its brand.

Social media is like the canary in the coal mine. Paying attention to what others are saying about you can help your company thrive.

Thought for the week:

“There is no scarcity of opportunity to make a living at what you love; there’s only a scarcity of resolve to make it happen.” – Wayne Dyer
