LinkedIn's Mindfulness Lead Branches Out To Cultivate Inside Out Leadership – Forbes

After a career as a customer-facing executive, Scott Shute designed and took his dream job, as Head of Mindfulness and Compassion Programs at LinkedIn. On the eve of his departure from LinkedIn, we spoke about Scott’s approach to leadership, which he describes as inside-out. This approach, based in compassion, has never been more critical than now amid the Great Resignation and so much other stress and tumult for employees within and beyond the workplace. Nell Derick Debevoise: You talk about Inside-Out leadership – what does that look like? Scott Shute: One of my favorite quotes is from Rumi: “Yesterday I was clever, and I tried to change the world, and today I am wise, and I'm working on myself.”  These days, we can open the virtual newspaper, and think wow, the world is a messed up place, and I'm not even sure which world I live in, based on which browser I opened. In that context, I could spend energy trying to solve any of those problems, whether climate or social justice or race or education. But I want to spend my energy on consciousness. And compassion.  I've had two tracks in my career: a giant part of my life…

Brief information: Pegasus, LinkedIn, PayPal, Holzhaus – Market Research Telecast

Apple updates close the Pegasus gap Apple surprisingly presented new operating system versions on Tuesday night. The central innovation is the fact that the group has apparently finally succeeded in closing a “Zero Click” security hole exploited by the security company NSO Group, with which the Pegasus spyware was distributed via iMessage. The exploit, named FORCEDENTRY by the security organization Citizen Lab, gave Pegasus all-round access to Apple devices – including microphone, camera and all the data they contain. FORCEDENTRY was not only possible on iPhones. According to Apple, the underlying loophole was also in iPadOS, macOS and even watchOS. In all of these systems it has now been remedied with the new versions. LinkedIn discriminates against job applicants LinkedIn algorithms apparently have problems dealing with the EU’s fundamental right to free movement. According to the regulation, citizens of the community are allowed to work and live in any of the member states. According to a report by the organization AlgorithmWatch, however, the “Recruiter” service offered by the social network to maintain and initiate business contacts automatically classifies people who apply for a job in another EU country as “unsuitable”. Experts see this as a violation of European law. Our…

LinkedIn Says Analytics Company In Scraping Battle Is Out Of Business 09/15/2021 – MediaPost

by Wendy Davis  @wendyndavis, 4 hours ago LinkedIn has told a federal judge that analytics company hiQ Labs, which has been fighting a high-profile battle against LinkedIn since 2017 over its scraping policies, actually went out of business three years ago.In those three years, the companies have taken their fight over scraping to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which upheld an injunction that prohibited LinkedIn from blocking hiQ, and the U.S. Supreme Court, which returned the case to the 9th Circuit for further consideration. Neither of those courts appeared to have been notified that hiQ allegedly ceased operations.“LinkedIn learned in the past few weeks that hiQ went out of business three years ago,” the Microsoft-owned platform wrote Friday in papers urging U.S. District Court Judge Edward Chen in the Northern District of California to lift the order that prohibits LinkedIn from blocking access by hiQ.advertisementadvertisement“hiQ shuttering its operations is precisely the kind of changed circumstance that eliminates the risk of likely irreparable harm and compels dissolution of the injunction,” LinkedIn writes.A LinkedIn lawyer elaborated in court papers that an hiQ attorney disclosed on August 20 of this year that the company had ceased operating in August or September of…

LinkedIn Shares New Insights on the Benefits of a Combined 'Brand and Demand' Approach …

An article from Should you focus on building your brand on social, or driving direct response? Each element has its place, but according to LinkedIn, it’s branding that will deliver the best results in the long run - so long as you take an intentional, sustained content approach. As per LinkedIn: “Evidence is mounting that loading budget into performance marketing without a brand strategy to support it risks diminishing returns. Research by the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising (IPA) shows the impact of demand marketing declining quickly over time, while an investment in brand keeps on giving. That’s why IPA data suggests that the optimal marketing mix gives 60% of budget to brand, compared to 40% for demand.” In other words, you should be looking to establish relationships with your social media audience over time, through a focused content plan, which reinforces your brand ethos and approach. At the same time, however, you also need to be promoting your latest products. A combined approach, factoring in the importance of each element, will help maximize your results – though it does take time to establish your brand, and that requires foresight, a strategic map to establish clear expectations, and investment, especially early…

LA Angels. (Photo by Douglas P. DeFelice/Getty Images) The LA Angels have been absolutely ravaged by injuries this season.Our franchise player has been out since Mid-May, expensive Justin Upton got hurt and hasn’t been any good since, Max Stassi has been on the IL for a few different stints, Dexter Fowler got hurt right away, 2021 All-Star Jared Walsh missed time, No. 2 starter Alex Cobb hasn’t played since July 23rd, No. 3 starter Patrick Sandoval is out for the year, and $210 million man Anthony Rendon has hardly played at all this year. No team other than the New York Yankees has had the type of injuries we have this season. Even then, they at least didn’t have the best baseball player of the last decade out almost all year.It appears this is really getting to the Angels however, as it looks like they’ll take anyone nowadays.Are the LA Angels so depleted by injuries that they’re going after used car salesmen these days?If true, the LA Angels have reached an all-time low.In all seriousness, though, it appears that this is what happened:(it would appear that LinkedIn messed up a listing from a company called Angels Auto Mart in Ormond…

Letter to the editor: Alicia Crank not my choice for Edmonds City Council

Editor: I will not be supporting Alicia Crank for Edmonds City Council. I am a Hispanic woman and wanted to support her two years ago when she ran for Edmonds City Council. But for the same reasons I did not support her then, I cannot support her now. According to Alicia’s website and her campaign mailer, she is currently serving on six boards, commissions, and committees. While this may look great on her resume or LinkedIn profile, it does not describe her role or work products produced as part of serving on any of these organizations. Simply being an “attendee” doesn’t cut it. Alicia wrote an article, found in LinkedIn, when she served as Corporate Relations Officer for the YMCA Seattle/King/Snohomish, May 27, 2014. In this article she discourages folks from being on multiple boards. Alicia writes, “There is nothing wrong with being on more than one but if your (you’re) replicating non-participation, it’s not good for anyone. A few years ago I became a ‘hot commodity’ and ended up being on five non-profit boards. A few months in, I realized that I could not give as much as I wanted to or as much as they deserved. I made…
