Zoom Is Maybe the World’s Worst Business Idea Ever

OK, I finally have to say this: What’s with everyone leaving their camera on during Zoom sessions

Look, back in the days when we all went into the office, meetings were the worst part of the day. So boring and so useless that people used to go through all kinds of contortions to make them barely tolerable.

For example, when I worked in a real office, I quickly learned how to appear utterly fascinated while thinking about something else altogether. My eyes would go wide, I’d lean forward and nod occasionally. Meanwhile, I’d be daydreaming or planning my day or whatever.

Speakers used to thank me for being so attentive when in fact I’d barely heard a word. I was all: “You’re welcome. That was a great presentation about… a very important topic.”

And then there’s the art of checking your phone during a meeting. You don’t want to

After a nearly 30-year career in acting, Matthew McConaughey has learned the art of pitching an idea. His tips will help you sell your next idea or product.

McConaughey recently joined the faculty at Moody College of Communication at the University of Texas, Austin. He participated in a video series that covered topics in advertising, marketing and public relations.

McConaughey packs a lot of information in his video titled, “Crafting a story to sell your product.” Here are three points that stood out for me.  

1. Know your audience.

 When McConaughey pitches a movie, he explains it differently to his wife, a studio head or his kids. “Pick your target, study your target and sell your product the best way they will understand it,” he says.

The Change Maestro’s Management Tip – When offering solutions to improvement issues, think out of your comfort zone

As Daniel Kahneman suggests in his book Thinking Fast and Slow, the human mind tends to take the easiest path when trying to resolve issues and make a decision. This never more true when we are trying to solve process problems.
