  • Twitter vs. Facebook • Facebook is primarily for strengthening existing connections (or re-establishing former ones.) For your friends. • Twitter enables you to connect with people who have common interests. For the friends you don’t know yet. 18
  • Twitter vs. Blogs • Twitter is a micro-blogging platform. • Limited length reduces writer’s/artist’s block • Blogs provide opportunity for more thoughtful reflection and development • Tweeting = great way to take notes on a live event • Blog = platform for review/synthesis • Twitter = great for spreading word about posts 19
  • 5 Reasons Twitter Beats Email • “Brevity is the soul of wit” - and of Twitter • No expectation to read and respond to everything • Conversations open and discoverable • Direct messages can reach recipients with priority • Blocking or unfollowing punishes abuses 20
  • Twitter Hashtags • Enable easy gathering, especially around an event, such as: • #hcsm • #MnAging or #MHA09 - TODAY • Follow in search.twitter.com or log into room on Tweetchat.com • Create a hashtag simply by using it in a tweet 21
  • Twitter Etiquette • Follow your interesting followers • Following not = endorsement • Auto d to new followers = Not Cool • “Protecting” updates also = Not Cool • Replying (@) = Cool • Re-Tweet (RT) to credit sources, help followers find interesting tweeters also = Cool 22

  • Stephen Covey’s “8th Habit” Going beyond effectiveness to greatness “Find your voice and inspire others to find theirs” 60
  • “8th Habit” Opportunity I can go to any group, and I do it all the time, all over the world, and I ask a simple question: “How many honestly believe that the vast majority of the workforce in your organizations possess more talent, more intelligence, more capability, more creativity, more resourcefulness than their present jobs require or even allow them to use?” Literally, almost everyone raises their hands…. Think of the loss of what we could call “voice,” of people’s intelligence, capability, creativity. And yet I can ask the next question: … “How many feel pressured to produce more for less?” and you know what, the same amount of hands go up. Now just put those two questions together: Here there’s this enormous capability and talent and intelligence, and also this great pressure to produce more for less, and they’re not able to even use it. -- Stephen Covey 61

  • Affirming our Employees Dear staff, This 4 minute video actually made me tear up…the patients mentioning our Judd Sessions, classes and pamphlets…in relation to their satisfaction with their care.
