Who Moved My LinkedIn?

Don't even start. I get it. They changed everything about the LinkedIn User Interface (UI). Stuff got moved features removed, you're not happy. My best advice? Deal with it.  

I once had a client who complained so much I had to deliver an intervention, "I work with winners, not whiners". Three years later at the company Christmas party he thanked me, "Best advice you ever gave me." We all knew changes would be coming when Microsoft bought LinkedIn. For many business executives, the biggest contributor to their productivity came from the time invested in complaining about the change.  

I've got a resource link to share with you. Before I do, let's take a moment to adjust our attitudes, starting with a quote from Charles Swindoll

"I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you. We are in Charge of our attitudes."

 

Before tearing your hair out, consider this:

  • Both you and your competitors are struggling with LinkedIn. Let your competitors complain while you use this as an opportunity to sharpen your skills.  
  • This is the best opportunity you will ever get to press pause and invest in training for you and your team.
