Surfing, texts, emails, and Tweets serve as clutter catnip for procrastinators.
In the wired world of business, one social-media authority suggests that professionals unplug, stop texting, and take a nap. Digital Leader: 5 Simple Keys to Success and Influence (McGraw-Hill/Available now), includes author Erik Qualman’s counterintuitive strategies for high achievers looking to distinguish themselves. Interestingly, many of his insights have little to do with technology; his view of meaningful connectivity has more to do with leadership by example and human interaction than Tweets and power apps. Those who can make positive impressions and engage, the author contends, will thrive in both real and virtual settings. Qualman is an author and founder/owner of socialnomics.com, a top social-media blog, as well as an MBA professor at the Hult International Business School. For more about the book, click here.
