5 Steps to Optimize Your LinkedIn Profile

I confess I am a LinkedIn Evangelist! Guilty as charged! You can see me often using my iPhone and being deep in my thoughts while reading news from various posts during my short breaks throughout the workday as I am switching between projects or long meetings. I find this to be enjoyable and relaxing as well as educational. Further, I feel connected to the world at any time, anywhere! To me, this is absolutely priceless.

Some changes we found to be unpleasant or uncomfortable while others were fun, exciting, and worthwhile. If you happen to be one that never experienced any change as of yet, I would love to have a word with you! The fact is that a transformation is a specific kind of change that we need to understand thoroughly and tackle on a team level through consistently evolving paradigm shifts. Transformations are complex, and they require leaders’ perspective as well as input from others in response to transformation to ensure it is not only successful but that it is indeed effective.
