  • What makes a good leader? Looking at my own personal growth at SAP, I have found that the Holy Grail of leadership today is engagement. It’s only through truly engaging customers that we’ve increased profitability, and only through employee engagement do we increase productivity. I have been lucky enough to work with an executive coach who truly understands how leaders can inspire teams and foster engagement within both their organizations and their customers’ organizations. This is some of the insight I’ve gained from her on engagement, people management, and leadership.   Build a team of your own personal challengers   A recent article in the Economist claimed that as technology continues to become more intelligent, the role of the leader will center more and more on innovative thought leadership. In order to prepare themselves for this reality, leaders must continually nourish their minds with complex problems, new ideas, and divergent perspectives. To this end, everyone needs their own group of personal challengers; external experts who fulfill that part of their development and growth on an ongoing basis. This could be mentors, coaches, business advisors, or just friends who work in different industries. While it takes some work to assemble and practice, it’s a critical element to developing your breadth of thinking and continuing your growth.   Convene and intervene   A very helpful leadership philosophy that I have learned is to convene and intervene. On one hand, part of being a leader is cultivating growth which entails convening people under a common purpose and allowing ideas to flourish. On the other hand, it’s about knowing when to jump in and steer the ship which entails helping the team take their ideas and shape them into something meaningful and executable. The leadership philosophy of convene and intervene allows you to be more present in a meeting by taking the onus off getting to the answer and instead focusing on the process of watching ideas grow and then simply shaping them. Not only does this help people feel engaged in the process, it also helps you learn a lot about the people you work with.   Two-to-one   Traditional thinking says that when coaching people, be sure to balance things that are working (positives) with lessons to be learned (negatives). Recent thinking suggests that the magic ratio is not 1:1, but in fact, 2:1. The 2:1 theory is that by emphasizing the positives, you create more buoyancy, leaving people feeling bullish and supported while at the same time having something constructive to work on. It’s so easy to jump right into the issue, especially in a company like ours where urgency can sometimes rule the day. I find myself needing reminders to adhere to this simple 2:1 rule of thumb, but when I do, I am stunned by the results.   Flying high and diving deep   Leadership in a sales driven organization requires an interesting balance of skills: the ability to help refine the details while simultaneously understanding the business with enough breadth to shape the strategy. The balance of knowing when to ‘fly high’ and ensure the overall health of the business, and when to ‘dive deep’ and run right alongside the teams, is a careful balancing act that is imperative to master for the sustainable health of both the business and the team. It can be really unnerving for people when a leader moves from one to the other quickly, which happens when leaders have both skills. Over time, and with amazing support, I have learned that announcing the switch – in a deliberate way – can help people understand what you’re doing. It ensures that people know they’re still trusted even though you need to understand the finite detail, and it allows them to understand that you also see the big picture and are looking out for their long term wellbeing.   Give, give, give, gone   Because there is never enough of it, time is the most valued gift we have to give. I’ve learned that when you have time with someone, give them everything you’ve got – your absolute undivided attention. If you say you’ll do something for them, do it there and then. Make the phone call, find them the document, send the email – but when they leave, move onto the next thing. This means you can always be true to your word, people get from you what they need, and you’re fresh and available to do it again when you move on to your next meeting.

  • Cyber scrooges utnytte alle typer digitale enheter, sosiale medieplattformer og mobilprogrammer utnytte brukernes distraksjon under denne travle tiden av året. For å opplyse offentligheten og bedrifter på de mest populære måtene kriminelle svindel brukere i løpet av ferien når de surfer deres digitale enheter, kom McAfee opp med en liste over 12 ting å være oppmerksom på.   E-handel salg er forventet for å stige mellom 8 til 11% i år til mer enn $105 milliarder, 56% av smarttelefonen eiere skal bruke enheten mens shopping. Med fire av fem amerikanske husholdninger med Internett banktjenester transaksjoner online, og fleste av bedrifter som støtter BYOD, er å være årvåken om sikker brukeratferd viktigere enn noensinne.   "Som folk butikk, bank og dele mer mens du er på farten, de åpne seg opp trusler fra kriminelle som ønsker å stjele personlig informasjon," sa Gary Davis, sjef forbruker sikkerhet Evangelist hos McAfee. "Forstå hva å passe på og hvor å riktig sikre sine enheter gir brukerne tilleggsinformasjon å beskytte sine digitale liv."   Her er topp 12 svindel:   1. Du har fått Mail! Som ferie salg fortsette å migrere online, øker risikoen for shipping varsel og svindelforsøk. Om malware er en helårig risiko, siden mange mennesker gjør ferien shopping på nettet, brukere er mer tilbøyelige til å klikke en shipping-varsel eller phishing e-post fordi de tror det er legit.   2. Villedende reklame: Alle søker etter stjeler og avtaler i ferier. Være skeptisk når online shopping for årets mest ettertraktede produkter. Farlige koblinger, falske konkurranser på sosiale medier og falsk gavekort er bare noen av måtene svindlere prøver å stjele informasjon.   3. Chilling veldedighetsorganisasjoner: Tis sesongen for å gi. I feriene gir mange tilbake ved å donere til sin favoritt veldedighet. Vær på vakt mot falske veldedighetsorganisasjoner som kan komme via e-post, eller deles virally gjennom sosiale medier.   4. Kjøper Beware: Det er bare noen svindel som brukere har ingen kontroll over. Poenget med salg malware som fører til utsette kredittkortinformasjon faller i denne kategorien. Pass på å sjekke kontoutdrag nøye og bo på nyhetene for å være oppmerksom og forberedt.   5. iScams: nye mobile apps for Android og iOS enheter er lagt til hver dag. Pluss med fremskritt innen teknologi, mobilenhet kan Kontrollere temperaturen i hjem, holde brukere som er koblet til sosiale medier og legge til kule filtre til feriebilder, for eksempel. Selv de offisielle ser eller festlig apps, men kan være skadelig og tilgang til personlig informasjon.   6. Få kardet: Digital e-kort til å spre ferie hurrarop er morsom, enkel og viktigst, gjennomtenkt. Men noen "Julehilsener," er egentlig "Merry Malware!" fra hackere. Velkjente ekort nettsteder er trygge, men være skeptisk til potensielle svindel som kan spørre en nedlasting av malware på enheten.   7. Ferie reise svindel: Fake online reise avtale er overflod, men det er også risiko som finnes når ankommer for destination inkludert spyware tilgang nformation gjennom logge på infiserte PCer på stedet.   8. Bank Robocall svindel: Når ferie utgifter øker og brukere er klar over misbruk til bankkontoer og kredittkort, hackere bruke dette som en mulighet. I de fleste tilfeller forbrukere får falske ringer fra en av disse institusjonene fra en automatisert (eller ikke) "Sikkerhetsagenten" om at brukerkontoen har vært utsatt, og ber om personlige opplysninger inkludert passordet, gjøre endringer.   9. ATM Skimming: Kriminelle får informasjon i minibanker av installere skimming enheter å stjele data fra en kortet magnetstripen og enten bruker et videokamera eller tastaturet overlegg for å fange PIN. En enkel løsning: se nøye på ATM for noe mistenkelig og dekke tastaturet når du skriver inn PIN-koden.   10. År i gjennomgang feller: mange nyhetstjenester kapitalisere på ferier ved å utvikle "År i Review" artikler. Selskaper bør advare sine ansatte om risikoen ved å klikke på disse typer koblinger fra deres arbeid e-post fra ikke-klarerte kilder. Koblinger fra falske kilder kan infisere og akkord sikkerheten av selskapet enheter.   11. BYO...Enhet: Med en økning i reise aktivitet (boblende!) over opptatt ferien, folk er mer sannsynlig å glemme sine smarttelefoner på offentlige steder. Mens det er upraktisk for dem, er det også vei for hackere å få tilgang til sensitive personlige opplysninger og forretningsdata hvis riktige sikkerhetstiltak ikke er på plass.   12. Dårlig USB Blues: I løpet av ferien, kan det være en økning i Gavekurver fra leverandører som ønsker å fortsette å gjøre forretninger med der selskapet i det kommende året. En av de mest populære varene i disse kurvene omfatter merkede USBs. Vokt dere for tillater ansatte å bruke disse som undetectable malware er noen ganger forhåndsinstallert på dem.   Bli beskyttet   Forske: Om online shopping, donere til veldedige organisasjoner, eller sporing gaver, forske for å sikre at selskapet er lovlig. Gå til selskapets hjemmeside til sikre at det er en ekte business stedet for å klikke en kobling i en e-post for mye shopping, besøk nettstedet direkte   Analysere Apps: Før du laster ned en ny app, gå gjennom den for å sikre nøyaktig hva som skjer på enheten. Bare laste ned programmer fra en offisielle app store og ikke en tredje part. Hvis programmet ber om mange tillatelser, ikke Last ned. Det kan be om tilgang til informasjon på telefonen eller tavle som er privat, og er sikkert mer enn programmet må utføre. Bruke antivirusprogramvare.   Bank noye: Folk bruker mer penger i løpet av ferien enn de gjør hele året. Cyber kriminelle kan prøve og bruke dette faktum til lettere svindel forbrukere. Hvis en bank kaller informasjonsforespørsler, henge opp og komme tilbake gjennom offisielle hjem telefonnummer. Det er viktig å snakke til banken gjennom offisielle antallet å vite det er legitimt. Når uttak av penger, være oppmerksom på omgivelsene. Hvis alt ser galt, lar. Inspisere ATM for løse ledninger eller maskindeler som kan ha blitt forfalske med. Dette kan indikere hackere prøver å fikse maskinen for deres fordel.   Oppholdet informert: Høytiden eller ikke, cyber svindel og identitetstyveri skje veldig ofte gjennom hele året. Nå som shopping sesongen har begynt og faren er økt, er det viktig å hele tiden være klar over nye cyber-angrep eller trusler i markedet. Følg nyheter nyheter for nye sikkerhetsbrudd være våkne og være på toppen av spillet. Bare Kjøp ferie gaver til forhandlere som ikke har blitt kompromittert. Sjekk kontoutdrag ofte.   Utdanne dine ansatte: Kontroller at ansatte vet hvordan å beskytte seg og sine enheter som kan inneholde eller koble til sensitive Selskapsopplysninger-hele tiden, men spesielt i denne hektisk ferie reise og shopping sesongen når enheter er mer sannsynlig å bli feilplassert og folk la vakt. Sikre enheter er sikret med komplekse passord til smartphones, tabletter eller bærbare datamaskiner. Dele de vanligste svindel som finnes rundt høytiden med ansatte slik at de vet hva du være på utkikk etter og hvordan å holde seg beskyttet.

    The new Alienware Graphics Amplifier (AGA) looks very nice. In fact, it'd be very good if it supported Alienware 17 and 18. I think Dell should add AGA port on future Alienware 17 & 18.Is it possible to utilize the Mini DisplayPort on current Alienware 17 and 18 as a Thunderbolt port? Existing 17 and 18 have to be able to enjoy AGA too.AGA has to support multiple cards for SLI & CrossFire and giant graphic cards. Hence, users will be able to enjoy desktop SLI and CF performance on Alienware laptops.Different PCIe slots (e.g 1x and 4x) have to be present too. The fact that sound card option won't be available on Alienware laptops (alright you win, Dell) is ok. Yet I'd be very happy if AGA supported PCIe addon cards. Thus, users will be able to install different PCIe cards such as sound card and SSD.
