Specifically the data that comes from your enterprise use of technology which includes nowadays mobile phones, M2M, SaaS, GPS, VPN access, landlines and so much more. It is great to have access to all of this data, but it is not so great to actually know what to do with it and make sure you can reap the benefits from all that stored data. Basically Big Data, on its own, is noise. Until this noise starts being cleverly orchestrated in reports and paired with action. Actionable Data Analytics is what enterprises use to find new operational efficiencies and reduce costs.

6 Key Leadership Virtues You Need to Master in Order to Work Smarter

on February 11, 2015 7:00 AM By | Henry Cheang | 0 Comments | Core Values Company Culture Work Smarter Tips Best Practices Leadership
In our fast-paced environment, a person who can listen, motivate, direct, and delegate while balancing energy and humility is an invaluable asset to any company. The thing is, not everyone who is a great leader was born that way (obviously, some people have a natural predisposition to lead well). Most everyone can develop (or at least improve) those skills. So what does it take to be a good leader? Here are 6 leadership virtues that great leaders should possess. Develop them in yourself, and become more than just a leader, become an amazing leader! 1. Humility As a famous quote states, “Confidence is silent. Insecurities are loud”. That couldn’t be truer. An insecure leader will most probably be an attention seeker that is constantly looking for credit or praise (even when it’s undeserved). Oddly enough, putting your ego aside and being humble improves leadership, both on a perception level and as a matter of substance. The more you brag, the more it seems like you are trying to cover up a lack of self-esteem. Insecurities can also lead to feelings of jealousy when faced with competition or others’ success, and the decisions taken with this mindset can wreck the company. Setting aside ego is easier said than done, I know. But if you make a solid, honest effort at putting it aside, you’ll better manage your employees and notice their needs. It’s one of the best ways to empower them.
