The Future of Leadership

Posted By Sara Hope, Wednesday, October 26, 2016

Leadership in the future requires much more than operating skills, technical understanding or financial expertise. While functional skills make you a more efficient manager, they don't necessarily make you a better leader.

Thank you to Nina Amjadi, Director of Tailored Learning, at Hyper Island Interactive for helping attendees to gain insights about future trends, events, and factors that shape the expectations of a leader including defining our personal leadership purpose and style.


We mastered the following:

• Conflict resolution
• Active listening
• How to lead diverse personalities, cultures, generations, and work styles
• Building trust and influence with others

Thanks to all of you who attended, and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

Check out the Future of Leadership Powerpoint to learn more.

Motor City West 2016

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, October 11, 2016

Motor City West 2016 was sold out, and it's easy to understand why. The best-of-the-best were on stage to discuss auto marketing and how the industry has had to progress to stay ahead of the curve. We learned that the traditional ways of selling have been flipped, going from an average of four dealer visits per sale to just over one. Auto companies are morphing into selling experiences, and mobile use for research is continuing to grow at a rapid pace. Social media, from shares to sales, is a key focus now and going into 2017. The way TV is consumed has also changed how we target our customers, and understanding the connection between offline to online will become more powerful. AI and data are now center stage, and the ability to harness and utilize that information to help sales will be the illuminating ingredient for 2017.


Big thanks to our speakers who shared their insights and expertise this year at Motor City West:

Legal Issues in Advertising

Posted By Sara Hope, Friday, September 30, 2016

On Sept. 27th, we discussed social media advertising, clearance issues, UGC challenges, and copyrights and music law in advertising. We learned when launching a social campaign to anticipate a range of consumer reactions. 

A few key takeaways:

  • Be sensitive to social and political issues
  • Determine all the ways your company plans to use your content
  • Have appropriate protections and response mechanisms in place before you begin
  • Take advantage of the federal laws that were enacted to protect you
  • Monitor content and refuse to post content that violates your terms and conditions
  • Copyright protects expression, not ideas

A Brief Look Info Mindfulness with ThinkLA

Posted By Sara Hope, Tuesday, September 27, 2016

Research shows us that there are mental and physiological perks to mindfulness and meditation. People who practice mindfulness might actually sport a little more grey matter (which is a good thing) than their peers who shy away from trying. Mindfulness can improve our creativity, build skills needed for peak performance and dynamic leadership, and even help us sleep better. Who couldn't use that?

On Sept 7, ThinkLA hosted their third Mindfulness workshop at Team One with InsightLA instructor, Allen Weiss. Watch our video recap to learn more about the benefits of everyday mindful practice.

Career Advice We Learned at This Summer's Intern Summit

Posted By Administration, Thursday, July 21, 2016
Updated: Thursday, August 4, 2016
  1. Make updating LinkedIn a priority. It's your professional profile; it should look like your resume. Take time to write out your current job description and what you're looking for.  
  2. YOU are your biggest advocate. Let people know what's important to you so that they can help you achieve your goals.
  3. Staying authentic can help with work/life balance and overall happiness. Authenticity begins with self-awareness: know who you are—your values, emotions, and competencies—and how you're perceived by others.
  4. Emails: use spell check, draft it without recipients until it's ready to send, don't start with lower cases, use correct pronunciation and grammar, ask a coworker to proof it.
  5. Focus on the most difficult tasks early in the morning.
  6. Take time to focus on you. You can work hard, but make time for yourself, however small.
  7. In many jobs, there is no on or off switch. Try to set boundaries and stick to them.
  8. In a perfect world, we would work for eight hours, sleep for eight, and enjoy life for eight. But finding fulfillment through work you love can make all the difference toward achieving that balance.
  9. Don't just network when you need something, it's a mutual exchange - offer to help first.
