Stories, Storytelling, Story-Selling in Business
Feb. 12, 2009 - By: Tom Nies
"Good stories fascinate us all. They always have. They always will. At this moment in our nation’s history, we are seeing two epic stories evolving—in terms of our new President, and in the state of our economy.

A World Without Surprise
Feb. 12, 2009 - By: Andy Nulman
"The ChangeThis instructions read: 'If you have a book… please use it only as a jumping-off point from which to isolate a particularly intriguing idea.' Well, I have a book. It’s called Pow! Right Between The Eyes! And its particularly intriguing idea opens mouths, pops eyes and, may I say, whups ass. While potent and influential, it is also the most bullyi ...
Self, and Importance. A Call to Reflection and Action
Feb. 12, 2009 - By: Scott Ballum
"When we align ourselves with the opinions of others without examination, we are robbing ourselves of the opportunity to analyze our own preferences and desires, to determine our own solutions.

The Other Climate Crisis
Jan. 15, 2009 - By: Ken Robinson Ph.D.
“One climate crisis is probably enough for you right now. I think there is another one.

I think of this as the other climate crisis. […] The fact is, ...
This is Your Buyology
Jan. 15, 2009 - By: Martin Lindstrom
“I have spent years talking with brand fans; from obsessed Harley Davidson riders to young Japanese Hello Kitty admirers (one of whom, incidentally, owns more than 12,000 pieces of Hello Kitty merchandise), to devoted Irish Guinness beer drinkers. I’ve, time after time, been struck by the apparent parallels between the power of religion and of brands over fo ...

Don’t Script, Improvise!
Jan. 15, 2009 - By: Mike Bonifer
"Businesses built to operate in the Networked World are as different from the Industrial Age models as a computer is from a multi-plane camera.

Better Than Free
Dec. 4, 2008 - By: Kevin Kelly
"The Internet is a copy machine. At its most foundational level, it copies every action, every character, and every thought we make while we ride upon it. In order to send a message from one corner of the internet to another, the protocols of communication demand that the whole message be copied along the way several times. […] Yet the previous round of wealth in ...
Smart Networking: End the Resistance, Prepare for Success and Get 24/7 Results Without the 24/7 Effort
Dec. 4, 2008 - By: Liz Lynch
"Though it may be hard to grasp, networking is much easier than you think. Forget the myth that you need to be an extrovert to network well. You don’t. Or that you must network nonstop. Absolutely not. Or that networking is all about working the room at a big event with a big fake grin p ...
