7 Instant Messaging Rules for the Workplace reprinted with permission from the HP Small and Medium Business Website
Because of its efficiency and speed, instant messaging, or IM for short, has become a valuable interoffice tool for employees to exchange information and collaborate in real time.
The advantages of IM are clear. But there are drawbacks too. IM can be distracting; employees can waste time using it for personal conversations; and IM technology is often not secure, leaving corporate networks more vulnerable to viruses and attacks. And because of the informal nature of IM, it can sometimes lead to embarrassing or serious mistakes.
By following these seven rules for appropriate IM use, you can avoid common pitfalls and make the most out of this effective and convenient communications tool.
Presenting with PowerPoint: 10 dos and don'ts by Jeff Wuorio reprinted with permission from Microsoft Small Business Center
Cherie Kerr knows how PowerPoint can be both provocative and persuasive in a business meeting.
She's also aware that precisely the opposite can occur.
"It can be the very best friend you have," says the Santa Ana, Calif., public relations consultant. "But you have to use it right."
Kerr's two-sided view of Microsoft's popular presentation and graphics program mirrors a debate coursing through business and academia. While many embrace the values of PowerPoint as a potent business tool, there are others who contend that it's a drag on effective interaction — that it confuses, distorts and even strangles communication.
But, as Kerr points out, any discussion of PowerPoint's merits and miscues merely illustrates the importance of using the program to best advantage.
