Ted’s Top 10 Posts of 2013


I love the living lab aspect of blogging more than I can tell you. You put something out there, share it a little, and watch what happens. Sometimes a post you think is a dud really resonates with your audience, and it seems to gain a life of its own. Other times, you pour your heart, soul, and brain into something only to watch it… just… sit there, ignored.

If that were the end of it, well, maybe never mind. But it isn’t! The reaction to each post – in comments but also in social sharing and, occasionally, in reposting and pingbacks – is priceless fodder for learning! “Oh, I guess the community hates that topic,” you can say. “Better scrap the plans for a four-part-series and a book.” Or if it takes off, maybe you’ll think, “Hmm. I wonder what else I have to say on that subject.”

All of which is to say a great big THANK YOU! for sharing the posts below. In descending are my top posts of 2013, as determined by your social sharing. Hmm. I wonder what else I have to say on good karma in social media…

Ted Coiné is a Forbes Top 10 Social Media Power Influencer and an Inc. Top 100 Leadership and Management Expert. This stance at the crossroads of social and leadership put him in a unique perspective to identify the demise of Industrial Age management and the birth of the Social Age. The result, after five years of trend watching, interviewing and intensive research, is his latest book, A World Gone Social: How Companies Must Adapt to Survive, which he co-authored with Mark Babbitt. An inspirational speaker and popular blogger, Ted is a pioneer of the Human Side of Business (#humanbiz) movement. He is also a serial business founder and three-time CEO. When not speaking at conferences and corporate functions, Ted advises CEOs on how to become Truly Social Leaders, or “Blue Unicorns” as they put it in A World Gone Social, in order to bring their companies into the Social Age. Ted’s advice: “Change is only scary if it’s happening to you. Instead, bring the change your competitors dread. That is something only a Social Age business leader can accomplish.”

    There’s a more human way to do business.

    In the Social Age, it’s how we engage with customers, collaborators and strategic partners that matters; it’s how we create workplace optimism that sets us apart; it’s how we recruit, retain (and repel) employees that becomes our differentiator. This isn’t a “people first, profits second” movement, but a “profits as a direct result of putting people first” movement.
