Free Tech Tools for the Digital Economy

StrategyDriven Tools for Professionals ArticleWhether you are a veteran of technological sophistication, just beginning one’s career in IT or technical communication, or even a novice player in the digital economy, there are many free technologies that can be used to complement, enhance, and simplify one’s technical tasks, business processes, documentation, as well as enrich and restructure workflows. These free tech tools can be directly applied in a work role or used simply to build one’s creative and technical skills. Furthermore, as technical, analytical, and even customer service work roles become more competitive, the catch-22 for those just entering the workforce is: no one will hire an individual without experience, but one cannot gain experience if no one will hire her or him. While having the right education is an essential asset in today’s cutthroat job market, it can become difficult to obtain a position without experience using various applications and technologies that enhance and amplify one’s resume. However, by just tinkering with some free technologies, one can add to her or his resume new technical skills and experience, and put one just a step above the rest in the competition for a position. More applicably, using these technologies will develop one’s technological skills, methodological knowledge, and subject matter experience, which is an asset to one’s career. Put these four technologies in your tech toolbox.

Key Leadership Strategies to Identify, Manage, and Prevent Office Idiocy

Office Idiots are those individuals whose actions, inaction, antics, and ridiculous behaviors generate widespread dissatisfaction and undercut the performance and productivity of fellow employees near and far and at any job level. Importantly, an organization’s leadership plays a critical role not only in terms of identifying office idiocy, but also from the standpoint of taking corrective and preventive action. The overarching theme is that when management ignores, tolerates, or even enables office idiocy, the outcome is destined to be a continuation and expansion of these counterproductive antics.

Not surprisingly, when managers and leaders act like office idiots, the population of office idiots in their departments tends to increase. There is no question that employees learn from their managers, and it is well understood that managerial behaviors and actions serve as models for the employees to emulate. As a result, when you find a manager who sits in meetings while texting and surfing the Internet on his smartphone, you will also find that his or her employees are far more likely to engage in the exact same idiotic behavior. And what should you do if you are trying to have a serious discussion with your manager or colleague and he or she is texting, glancing at the computer screen, and pecking away at the keyboard at the same time? You should say something, lest you are actually enabling this behavior. Tell this individual that you need his or her attention in order to discuss an important matter. And if the glazed look continues, simply suggest that the two of you meet later. In terms of the bigger picture, leadership assertiveness is a key element in dealing with most forms of office idiocy.
