Why We Don’t Get the Leaders We Say We Want
Sept. 16, 2015 - By: Jeffrey Pfeffer
“The state of workplaces can only be described as dire. Moreover, there is no evidence that things are getting better over time. What gives? And maybe more importantly for those people worried about companies and their people, is there any hope for a better future?”
Why Grit is The New Black
Sept. 16, 2015 - By: Linda Kaplan Thaler & Robin Koval
“Grit is the most accurate predictor of success in achieving life goals. Grit is about sweat, not swagger, character, not charisma. Grit is the result of a hard-fought struggle, a willingness to take risks, a passionate pursuit of one’s goals, and the perseverance to continue against all odds.”
Political Savvy is a Leadership Skill
Sept. 16, 2015 - By: Bonnie Marcus
“Imagine for a minute, a workplace where everyone is aligned with business objectives; where everyone understands the value they contribute; an environment where people actively seek to build mutually beneficial relationships across the organization. In other words, a workplace of politically savvy individuals.”
Thinking Our Way Out of the Darkness
Sept. 16, 2015 - By: Angie McArthur & Dr. Dawna Markova
“We take for granted that intelligence occurs within our own minds. We don’t realize that it also occurs between us. What keeps us from tapping into that intelligence and communicating effectively is that most of us don’t know how to think with people who think differently than we do.”
The Self-Disruptor’s Manifesto
Sept. 16, 2015 - By: Jay Samit
“All disruption starts with introspection. Self-disruption is akin to undergoing major surgery, but you are the one holding the scalpel. Most people avoid this painful process because they are not willing to risk what they have built for the opportunity to have something better.”
Solving The Wrong Problems: Why Behaviors Don’t Change In Organizations
Sept. 16, 2015 - By: Todd M. Warner
“Organizational success seems to breed inertia and a status quo that is self-destructive. The stability that organizations establish in the name of efficiency and operating protocol domesticates employees, and sets in place a web of factors that conspire against behavioral change.”
How To Be More Valuable Than Machines: Developing Our Most Essential Human Abilities to Survive the Rise of Computers
Aug. 5, 2015 - By: Geoff Colvin
“We’re entering an era in which the skills that make you valuable are not only changing—they comprise a fundamentally different kind of skills from those that have made people economically valuable up to now.”
We Are All a Bit Delusional
Aug. 5, 2015 - By: Dan Gregory & Kieran Flanagan
“Unfortunately, most of us can’t be above average—the math just doesn’t work. Now clearly, some people are aware that we’re below average in some areas of our lives, even believe that we’re below average on the whole, but overwhelmingly, human beings are a little delusional when it comes to their conception of their own competence.”
A Manifesto for Planet and Progeny
Aug. 5, 2015 - By: Henry Mintzberg
“The dogma of Communism was exorcised in Eastern Europe in 1989, only to be replaced by another one. Today the world is haunted by the spectre of an ‘economic man’ and his form of capitalism, seen as the be all and end all of human existence. We shall have to stop the be all before it becomes the end all—of our planet and our progeny.”
Social Drive: How You Can Create Positive Change, Right Now
Aug. 5, 2015 - By: Paul Shoemaker
“I don’t want to do anything to deter anyone from believing there is power in the group, in the network. I’m not a fan of false, egotistical, self-centered ‘heroes’ either. But I do believe that the positive social impact one person can create has never been clearer, stronger, and more urgent.”
