LinkedIn Identifies Worker Weakness

April 23, 2018

I read “LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner Just Revealed Employees Lack This 1 Surprising Job Skill More Than Any Other.” I found the write up amazing. The table below identifies the steps one must take to become an effective communicator. Note that there are two columns in the table. I have commented on each of the “tips” with a reference to LinkedIn’s own service, used by an estimated 200 million professionals. How is LinkedIn doing? Decide for yourself.

Weiner Tip Addled Goose View
Really listen LinkedIn does its best to distract via annoying notifications, a “dark” interface, and obscured functions
Exude confidence How many “contacts” do you have? You need more. Without more, your confidence will suffer.
Be a non verbal ninja Nothing is better than zero feedback from LinkedIn regarding issues with its system
Be concise Nothing is more concise than zero way to reach LinkedIn staff
Start from a place of respect Nothing shows respect than zero user support

Can you locate a list of groups so that you can find those which interest you? Start there. Oh, don’t forget to sign up for the monthly “real” service. A combination of Microsoft and LinkedIn—an ideal couple.
