Jennifer - to your question - by increasing my self-awareness and focusing on becoming authentic and true to my talents, behaviors, and values - in all that I do. Very nice post, yes extraordinary by any other name, is worthy of pursuit. Thanks for posting on BizSugar.com"
Meredith - great overview and detail. I run a small job placement company. We do not charge applicants for job searches. We do charge for resume development if a full rewrite is needed, yet for the most part applicants can be given good recommendations, make the changes on their own, and not be charged. Our company is in business to get people jobs and to satisfy employer job needs. Correct that there are some disingenuous, unscrupulous folks out there. Let the buyer beware applies. Interview your job search services before you buy anything. Ask for references. We do a lot more, but that would warrant a full post:). Thanks for posting on BizSugar.com"
It is great, John, that you are using a social platform to stimulate a debate on communications. Whether Occupy, Arab Spring, terrorists using social to subvert, or politicians using social to campaign it remains a growing (and ever changing) communication form. Your MDEC model is a solid effort to harness the potential for marketers. To me, it matters not whether I agree with the content or format of the communication - it is the ability to communicate and the capacity to do so at an ever more rapid pace that influence thought - and eventually thought influences and affects action. As social media continue to evolve consumers will determine the utility of the medium, as they have always done, and the social media will adapt. "
