Physicians’ Reputation- do you encourage positive reviews from patients?

Our finding shows that most doctors worry about negative reviews posted about them on review websites. Physicians’ know that it’s just the mouthing off unhappy patients. Review website often doesn’t take the responsibility to ascertain the negative reviews are baseless and fictional. For example In one case we found a “review” that was demeaning beyond belief, the so-called patient was an ex- girlfriend of that physician and she had a personal agenda in doing so. But not everybody will realize the quality of such information and the significant impact it has on the physician.

How to avoid accidental social media disasters

Do you have an active social media life? If the answer is a ‘Yes’ you need to be reading this post.

Post the ‘Weinergate’ incident, when an accidental tweet with an obscene photo that should have been made via direct message to an on-line girlfriend went public on Rep. Weiner’s timeline forcing his resignation, it is time to list out ways to avoid such social media disasters.

Armed with Android smartphones and numerous social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter is by itself a challenging situation. So you have your personal Twitter and Facebook account, and your companies’/clients’ both on a computer and sometimes even on your smartphone. Juggling these daily is daunting to say the least.

The other aspect is your own social life and how you conduct yourself in social circles, what pictures you post on Twitter and Facebook and so on. Ask around and you’re sure to know quite a number of people who have suffered the ‘Freudian slip’ or in this case the ‘Freudian click’ sending the wrong message to an ex-flame/spouse. You end up dealing with not just the horror of such a predicament but also the sinking feeling that it could have been easily avoided.

FIFA Prove Existence of Parallel Universe

Contemporary physicists have proposed a theory of the multiverse: that our universe is just one of many. Sceptics of the theory only need only look at FIFA and its president Sepp Blatter to realise that there must be some truth to the theory, because whatever universe Sepp Blatter inhabits, it is certainly not this one. FIFA has long been byword for corruption, back-handers, opaque processes and the steady drip of scandal. Even by their tawdry standards, this last week has been utterly awful with senior members suspended and now the most farcical of “elections” with just one candidate planned for this Wednesday.

How to become even more unpopular

Did the board of directors of RBOS know about his affair? That is the most fascinating question arising from the lifting of the injunction on reporting of Sir Fred Goodwins affair with a colleague. CEO’s are frequently high profile individuals whose persona is stamped on the company they run. Think Virgin and Branson or Apple and Steve Jobs.
A recurring criticism of Goodwin was that he ran the company like a personal fiefdom with an abrupt and arrogant management style that seemed to encourage flunkies and discourage criticism and internal scepticism. The next few months will be interesting as we read more about the affair and how it impacted his decisions at the bank.
Board directors should pay attention: managing the company’s reputation is a board matter and if the CEO and company are inextricably linkedthey need to reassure themselves that their CEO is behaving with the utmost probity if it is not to impact share prices.
As for Sir Fred: well, he is already one of the most unpopular people in the UK. He has just shown us how to be even more unpopular.

Know Thy (Social Networking) Self

They say imitation is the greatest form of flattery. They say that impersonation is a form of imitation. Ergo, shouldn’t impersonation thus be considered flattery? Well, no – not really.
