This is another post in the NoFearHR project between Mike Vandervort and myself.
I think we've done a good job thus far in differentiating how the initial approach to social media can take place in different size organizations and departments. The work you've done at your company is nothing short of phenomenal. I can only imagine having that much success with our initiatives.
The eight steps you outlined in your last post clearly lay out a macro-level view of the steps necessary to get the buy in at the top before a social media initiative kicks off. Today I'd like to go a little deeper and discuss the internal behind-the-scenes reality of even beginning to discuss the steps you laid out. How does the HR practitioner begin the conversation about the value of social media to an executive team that still uses the term twittering?
What do you think Mike? I'm so focused on the power of relationships in the workplace, that I think this piece needs some discussion before we take implementation any further.
