Here's an article that came out today on Why Leaders Should Use Social Media http://bit.ly/1t8V1wD This list is a good start: Show More Character, Making Connections, Engage in Conversations, Create Your Own Content, Create Communities, Promote Collaboration --my only addition is TO LEARN. Leaders oftentimes don't do enough to expand their knowledge base or connect with worlds outside their own. IMHO, they are missing opportunities this way. Just because "you made it" doesn't mean you should stop striving to develop. I may have mentioned a question I posed at a conference to some top corporate leaders, about the "what now?" when they "got there." Their answers told me they didn't put much thought into this question. Social media is an easy way to get access to tons of information. In fact, it almost finds you if you let it. My experience with writing a book has shown me that it takes a lot of work to do research. I've also been lucky to find some really great leads by following Twitter or LinkedIn feeds. These are gifts that I happily accept, and you should too.
