I share your view about hourly rate. I faced this years ago and it did take some time for customers to adapt to it. New customers sometimes struggle with it because it seems to have become a default or norm in the world.
Having said that, my customers like the fact that with a "value" price they actually get a better price and more value. i spend less time tracking my time and thus have more attention for the real work.
Great post and I think it will help many explore this topic.

Your post touches on a very hot topic. As social
media and technology have united to make everyone instant reporters, it
has also heightened the need for old world etiquette. Odd yes?
Just because we can take pictures doesn't mean we should take them
without asking permission. Years back (before social media) I was
giving a keynote and the event was *not to videotape me. During the
talk, someone stood up with a video camera (they were large enough to
see back then) and started to video me. I stopped and very nicely asked
him to turn it off.
His answer spoke volumes: "Oh don't
worry, You are doing fine. Keep going." I thought, Huh? He really
didn't get it. He believed he could walk through life doing whatever he
wanted without any regard for the impact on others.
Every action we take in this world affects someone else. Social media
and technology have not changed that basic rule of humanity.
Let's remember to ask before we take pics, attribute intellectual
capital to the source, and use social media and technology for the good
of all while showing respect for all.
Regards and thanks,

#7 on your list (I don't know how) caught my eye for sure. My mother had an answer for that one when I was a child --- "look it up". And there was no Internet back then.
My parents had high expectations of us in daily everyday behavior. It built a strong work ethic and can do attitude that has stood by me. When I started my biz many years ago, it was my belief that I could learn anything and work hard that overcame my fears.
Thanks mom and dad.
And thank you Emelia for this great post.

Love your post for it brings into focus a simple human truth -- people connect through positive feedback. When we engage others with honest communication, the potential is limitless.
When leaders, communicate the positive they also guide on what is important for the organization and engage more of that behavior.
Here is one post that expands on this with:

I think @MeghanMBiro and @TalentCulture can also contribute to this with their strong focus on employee engagement.
Many thanks for a great post!

AmyMccTobin I am inclined to agree Amy. By using them on a regular basis we strengthen them for use whenever we *really need them. Thanks for your comment and the feedback.
ellenfweber Hi Ellen, That's a high compliment coming from you. Your "brain" posts stretch all readers and even tap our imagination.
I am so glad this post is touching so many people's brain power!!
dbvickery Thanks for the compliment! What's really nice is that you coached a "new grad" as I call them in ways that will grow and sustain his career. You have my applause for taking the time.
Have a great weekend,
Martin D Redmond Hi Marin, Love your reference to Alvin Toffler quote. Although I hadn't thought of it when I wrote the post, it does fit.
Those who can adapt to change -- and for me it's easiest to do it through learning -- find all kinds of pathways to happiness they never imagined.
So pleased that you took time to tell me and all the readers what thoughts the post sparked in you.
Many thanks and I hope you will comment on any post I write here on 12most.com or my own blog.
Excellent list that shows a depth of insight on what leaders must face. For me as The People-Skills Coach, I predict that leaders will have to invest far more time in learning about diversity to succeed.
Global collaborators alone raises all the issues of intercultural differences. Generational differences, knowledge differences, etiquette and effectiveness of virtual collaboration (mobile etc..) -- all require leaders to focus in on their people-skills beyond what they have done so far.
I am ponderous about the scope of these challenges and excited to be around to help!
