    [Marketing] The Misery Of Monetization
    " There's a bigger question here: do you think that consumers are as forgiving as a professional marketer? I'm willing to bet that marketing efficacy would be based less on those areas of concerns and much more on what the user experience is, and whether or not the marketing adds value (a compliment to it) instead of acting as an interference. professional marketing.

Strange when you look at our history of evolution - we love new things, when we don't want to feel in a rut and we normally like improvements around us. So why are we so anti change at work?

    For me empowerment is about trust in the talent of those around you to think, to innovate, to react to what the market requires. Empowerment and delegation are often confused within the business world. Giving  someone a task and trusting in the talent at your disposal are two different things.There are times when delegation is required, there are times when empowerment is a necessity.  . Empowerment is not about the loss of control, it is about gaining control through the loyalty of employee engagement. For me delegation is about a specific task or duty. Related articles.
