The bike that gets treated like a baby

A central premise of my Slingshot Framework is the need and power of connecting emotionally with your target audience.  Whatever business you are in, you must strive to fill not just a functional need, but also to capture the hearts of your customers.  Establishing and re-stoking such a connection has immense benefits:  It keeps you relevant and close to your customers, allows you to be positioned as a provider of lifestyle or workstyle enrichment and to command a premium price.

Earth calling: all 7 billion of us

Well, it was certainly inevitable.  But it’s still astounding how fast it happened.  This year the number of mobile phones will exceed the world population.  Think about that for a moment:

How does your brand show its playful side?

Workplace fun builds a company-wide emotional alignment and a foundation for open, creative thinking. It enriches the work experience and environment of employees. In turn, more content and more engaged employees serve to make the organization itself more successful.

Earlier in the month I wrote about April Fool's Day and the importance of honoring this ultimate holiday of creativity and fun. Now ask yourself this: Does your business have a sense of humor? Put another way, do you encourage playfulness and laughter among your staff and in your workplace? Or is your business environment rather serious, stiff, and bland?
