Micro-moments: Putting content at key decision points

So many “micro-moments” in a day…comeinwereawesomesign

I want-to-know moments, I want-to-go moments, I want-to-do moments, and I want-to-buy moments.

These are the decision moments that consumers encounter throughout the day when they experience a want or perceive a need for themselves.

Think with Google writer Sridhar Ramaswamy says,

Today’s battle for hearts, minds, and dollars is won (or lost) in micro-moments—intent-driven moments of decision-making and preference-shaping that occur throughout the entire consumer journey.

For example, you check into your hotel in an unfamiliar town, and you’re hungry. You don’t know what’s available, but you’re looking out the window and you notice a “restaurant open” sign. You wonder what they serve, and if it’s any good. Suddenly, you turn your head and notice that there’s a brochure on your hotel nightstand with that restaurant’s menu, which proudly mentions of its five-star rating on TripAdvisor. You’re a consumer. You’re hungry. And this is a decision moment. Guess what you’re doing for dinner!

These micro-moments can be game changers in the capability-building world, too.

Think about it. Learners are consumers, too. And learners have countless decision moments…I-want-to-understand moments, I-want-to-know-how moments, that drive their choice to engage, or not, with your content.  How can you design and deliver your content so that it’s available at the point of need—the precious micro-moments when your learners are ready and looking?

Leadership Elastic …Now that’s Fantastic!

I love this article by WordPress blogger, LeadershipFreak:

Stretched, Not Crushed

Every time things start going wrong we look to the leader for solutions. Beware! The pressure to provide solutions crushes leaders. When solutions come from the top, organizations crumble from the bottom.

A C-level leader recently said, “When I wake up stressed out over problems in the night, I know I’ve forgotten it’s about the team. Things go better when I include others.”

Stretching others: Leaders who can’t ask people to do hard things can’t get hard things done. Meaningful contributions require deep commitment and effort. Weak leaders assume others can’t or won’t step up. They rule out before they ask.

Ruling out: That’s too hard for them. Making it easy prevents people from stepping up. Give people the opportunity to do hard things. I’m not suggesting you intentionally make things hard for others.

  1. They already contribute so much. Translation, they can’t make meaningful contribution in new areas.
  2. They wouldn’t be interested.
  3. They’re too valuable where they are. If anyone says that to you, update your resume’.

The big ask: The big ask is about values before programs. Programs, methods, and techniques are small things when compared with the power of shared values. Align shared values before making the big ask.

It’s the team:

Carrying the load alone crushes;
carrying the load together stretches.

Shared values are magnetic; they pull people together. Success is always about people before it’s about programs and initiatives. People committed to shared values make deep commitments to each other. Connections sustain and energize when things get hard. Blame separates and defeats.

How do you ask others to do hard things?

What should be in place before you ask for deep commitments?
