CBT means different things to different people
useful if you follow CBT related pinboards of interest to you
a powerful curation tool

Social media can give employees a chance to
listen to what communities are saying
and feel closer to them, often without having to leave the office.

Using social media as channel for your organisation to
just broadcast news is a big mistake.

Hearing the people that we really work for
can deepen the ways that we relate to the people we serve.

We can
identify with ‘the people’
, not just the corporate order givers.

Social media can help
you and me bring our hearts to work
. Get on your corporate home feeds for a few minutes a day and begin to know your people!"

Support others to learn at work
