We're talking w/ John Sumser of HRExaminer - the accepted 'definitive' word on 'Influencers' in the HR Space - on why influence matters (or not) in Business, HR, & Recruiting today.
Here's the questions we'll be covering:

Q2. What are some ways influence can be used to benefit an organization before & after an 'Influencer' is recruited? #TalentNet
Q3. How many 'Influencers' should any one organization try to recruit - can there be a case of "too many chiefs v indians" w/ influence? #TalentNet
Q4. Should an individual put a concerted focus/effort on becoming 'more influential' & how/why would they? #TalentNet
Q5. Can 'influence' grow/reach a point where it snowballs & actually damages the individual or the brand they serve? How? #TalentNet

As much as we claim to want social media, the fact is that most people are loathe to make the changes this newfound marvel requires—especially organizational leaders. They've set up cultures and processes to protect brands from from the silly things employees do by defining organizations that, while imperfect, are stable. They've defined succession plans that depend on predictability and consistency... not individuality. Social Media? Makes that complicated.
Join guest Jason Seiden, CEO of Ajax Social Media as we talk about tellingour personal stories, employee engagement, the realities of social media, and how much we can let our individual 'freak flags' fly @ work on 7/24 4p PT | 6p CT | 7p ET!
