It’s no longer enough to simply know the tools of social media, organizations need to know how to apply them strategically to gain a sustainable, competitive advantage. Humanize , new from Que Publishing, provides proven strategies for using social media to create comprehensive change and opportunities for growth.

Authors Maddie Grant and Jamie Notter draw on their extensive experience working with organizations to focus on four elements of “humanness” that social media can help promote: becoming more trustworthy, open, generative, and courageous. Throughout the book, they identify the roles each employee can play, working together to become more social, more human, and more effective.

NEWS FACTS:

Humanize will help readers to:

  • Change organizations from the inside out
  • Address critical elements of organizational behavior, process, and culture
  • Move beyond social media buzzwords like transparent, decentralized, and open – and actually make them happen
  • Promote forms of “generative” success that go beyond profit and loss

Quote:

Humanize offers practical content and insightful thinking that will help businesses make the deep changes needed to thrive in today’s social world,” said Mike Smith, President of Forbes.com and author of Matchpoint.
