Think Big! Be Nice! Have Bold Visions of the Future!
I have been listing to 3 very inspiring women. Frida Boisen – Elaine Eksvärd – Darja Isaksson. It was all under the combined meet-up of IT-Solutions Expo and HR Summit Väst. They all gave 3 different views on the society, that is toppling the old industrialised economy. It’s called The Connection Economy. In a way it has always been about who you knew in the old society too. The difference was that it was only available to a selected few, who was in the right circles and that did know who to make friends with. Now with the power of the digital dimension and an emerging number of people who has studied both old and modern knowledge and science, there is paradigm shift already on the way.
So in honor of the 2015 International Women’s Day theme “Empowering Women, Empowering Humanity: Picture it!” I give you:
The Power Girls
Frida Boisen talkas about here own experience in using Social Media as Editor-in-chief at GT.

@fridaboisen [Frida Boisen] – Social Ninja – Be Nice
Frida gives a very interesting and funny talk about her experience as Editor-in-chief at GT. She gives us 10 things about then going online.
Is Viral important? Can we only reach impact if we go viral? Both yes and no. Viral is important to get reach. On the other hand getting real connection with people one on one is now more possible, quicker and easier than ever before. It all depends on your message and your agenda.
The one thing to think about: Use your comedic talent. On the web and in presentation and talks. Humor always has a way to get into your heart. And satire has proven again and again through the ages to be a very effective tool to put the spotlight on anything fishy in society.
Ask yourself: What is in your heart?
1. Spread love not hate online
Touch someone. Reach out. Be honest and real. All people have a heart to get through to.
2. Tell it first
In a way we humans always look to someone who is the fastest to deliver important news.
3. Tell it best
If you are not first to say something then say it better
4. Like and share
Be generous. All of us likes kindness
Use congratulations [Grattiseffekten]. We all know how good it feels to be flooded with kind words on our birthday or another important day on Facebook.
5. Connect first
Show someone you care about them. Tell them what you feel. Be then one who reaches out and shows initiative.
6. Join in on popular conversations and Hashtags
Be where the heat is.
7. Ping people.
Lift them up. Don’t gossip about them. Everyone likes be thought about in a good way.
8. Find your audience
Find your tribe. The Long Tail is becoming true. If Your trying to please everyone you will end up pleasing no one.
9. Replay back
Follow back. Don’t feed the trolls. Be active in constructive conversations.
10. Look after your brand
Be positive. Talk about your successes.
We must never accept online-hatred and Toxicness. We must talk about what Code of Conduct we use both online and in the flesh. It’s never okay do harm to one another.
Laugh at the trolls
1. Start a fire. Find your values. Talk to the heart.
2. Be top of mind. Follow! Like! Be generous, be everywhere.
3. Chose a small arena. Use micro targeting. Visit a Café.
Be bold. Be Daring. Be Vulnerable
Think Big. Tell Stories. Share Your Vision.
It’s Your Turn!
@ElaineEksvard [Elaine Eksvärd] – Rhetoric Ninja – Train Your Communication Skills
Elaine has so much to say on how we communicate in todays society. I’ll sum up below some of her important points.
Use the first 90 seconds of any encounter to define and make sure everyone you meet get the right picture of you and not a internal one filled with clichés and preconceptions. This is especially important for people like me who have chosen to wear my residual self image full out in the flesh of “The Matrix”.
Communication is a skill and muscle that you must train every day.
Think about how you sound and what tonality you are using.
What is your posture and what body language are you using. If you don’t know, find out.
When someone are trying to portray their thoughts and opinions as facts there is an easy way to disarm them. Just say: Oh, that’s how you are felling? [Jasså, så känner du?] 🙂
Words and communication are power and we all need/want more influence (power).
So keep practicing your skills.
Get more social power and influence!
1. You have more power.
2. You can get more power.
3. Much More!
Be nice! Be vulnerable!
And do plant a dream in every child you meet!
@darjaisaksson [Darja Isaksson] – Digital Ninja – Join The Digital Dimension
Darja is a new friend of mine that have met threw the new networked society. She raises some very thoughtful ideas about the present and the future. Things we all need to act or react to in one way or another. Or passively not at all. It’s choice we make. Adapt or surfer the consequences.
The World has changed forever. We are now in a new Communication revolution. The transition to the relation and connection economy. A participatory culture.
The ability to write down and share our thoughts has never been greater and the need has never been more dire. We are face with some enormous challenges as a human race and the better and faster we start collaborate around new ideas the better chance we have in solving them. With all the new technology we have today we great opportunity to be active members of creative society. It’s like Matthew Taylor say in his spectacular adress last year. Every citizen has the #PowerToCreate.
Our expectations evolve with an ever faster tech explosion.
Get ahead of the curve!
We want frictionless
We also want experiences
Visual consumption has started to affect our behaviours
Blogs are the new stores.
Both Physical and Online Merged in a great way are the winners
What happens all products have their own soundtrack?
We must talk about the future like never before
We must own the present and have bold visions for the future
Many companies under-deliver about our expectations and the possibilities.
Are you one of them?
Do you know your customer?
Do you have speed?
And do you use #TheDigitalDimension?
We see you in #TheDigitalDimension
@darjaisaksson wants us to wake up and talk about #TheFuture!
As do I!
Holistic Thinking Ninja
And then we have the 2 guys Kalle Möller and Alexander Bard who I also met. They will get their room in a coming blog 🙂
