II. Mishmash of Value:

Introducing What is New to Help You in 2013

When Bill Gates said, "Never before in history has innovation offered promise of so much to so many in so short a time" I doubt he was talking about the improvements in my social media outreach. That however, does not stop me from applying his vision to my news. The innovations I have made to my website and social media are solely to give you the promise of information when you need it-in many different forms- to catapult you over a communication challenge.

I am pleased to announce these additions and improvements so: #1 You will know help is here when you need it. #2 To challenge you to add the innovation of social media in some way to your career, your business, or your profession. #3 To offer additional value.

We are using this month's newsletter to offer to you more value in 2013 than ever before. Perhaps it is to prove that 13 is a lucky number . . . listen, follow the links and watch the new content as it rolls out each week and it will be lucky for you!

1. My YouTube Channel

New this year is our new video series, When Leaders Speak, on my YouTube channel, Leslie Ungar. Each brief video answers "in the time it takes to walk across a room" how to excel at different spokes of the communication umbrella. Subscribe to my YouTube Channel here.

Lesson Learned:

Remember when making videos or being on video that perfection is not your goal, being effective is your goal. Are you holding yourself to a realistic standard?

2. Podcasts to Help You

3. New Look to My Blog

New this year is our revised, updated, beautiful and easy to navigate new format for my Blog, Leaders Need to Speak. I see the world through the lens of communication and connect the dots for you to learn communication lessons from current events. Come with me and see my current, relevant and cutting edge blog.

Lesson Learned:

My blog allows me to comment in different ways than other channels of communication and in real time. We live in an era when newspaper reporting is late compared to a website and a weekly magazine is just plain irrelevant. Are you taking steps to stay current?

IV. The Natcha Journals

Natcha has to ring the bells attached to the back door when she wants to go out. She rings the bells and then is to sit. The other day she had her favorite bear in her mouth when she tried to ring the bells. But she had to choose: the bells or the bear. She could not do both. I could watch her struggle with the decision. There are times when we have to let go of one, to move ahead to the other.
