Using Learning to Engage, Compete, and Succeed
Sept. 19, 2018 - By: Kelly Palmer & David Blake
“If you aren’t ready and willing to learn every day and keep up with a rapidly changing world, you can’t and won’t stay competitive. Gone are the days when you could graduate with a four-year degree and feel secure that you had learned everything you needed to know to stay relevant for your entire career.”
Business Must Make Life Better
Sept. 19, 2018 - By: Richard Hardyment
“We desperately need a more human form of capitalism that places people at its heart—whether that’s farmers supplying raw materials, factory workers creating goods, or shoppers buying and consuming products and services. We need business to embrace a wellbeing purpose with an audacious ambition: to make life feel better.”
What Makes a Change Maker a Change Maker?
Sept. 19, 2018 - By: Amy Radin
“Economic and social stability depend upon innovation. The friction of capital and information, and the impediments that used to be caused by distance, time, and space are gone, but getting from imagination to execution continues to be full of challenge. Change makers close the gap between napkin-back idea and real-world impact.”
Lessons From The Road: Bringing Musicianship and Performing Into The Office
Sept. 19, 2018 - By: Todd Pasternack
“Have you ever looked at the way bands and music artists operate—at various levels of success—and found parallels to the ways that businesses need to constantly innovate, grow and empower their teams to get the best out of them? … There are more connections than you may think.”
Why Routines Matter
Aug. 8, 2018 - By: Todd M. Warner
“Most people who work in large organizations do not have the ability to design their own habits, or routines; their work lives emerge from the environment that they work in, and the forces—operational, hierarchical, and functional—that exert themselves on their daily lives. Successful people in these environments, we’ve found, have routines that are distinct to their social systems, and these routines differentiate their performance.”
Finding Your Lodestar: Long-Term Thinking for a Short-Term World
Aug. 8, 2018 - By: Mark Miller & Lucas Conley
“In 1968, Andy Warhol proclaimed, ‘In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.’ With the advent of memes and viral videos, we now live in that future—one in which any trending joe (or his grumpy cat) can make a quick buck. So why is all this short-termism leaving so many of us feeling shortchanged?”
Breakthrough Technologies Don’t Create Transformative Growth. Breakthrough Business Models Do.
July 11, 2018 - By: Mark W. Johnson
“Adding digital capability to a product or to an entire business may improve it and make it more profitable, but technology alone is not enough to propel the kind of sustained growth that can transform your whole enterprise. The business model that goes with that technology is absolutely key to its success or failure.”
A Boss Life
July 11, 2018 - By: Emily Thompson & Kathleen Shannon
“No matter how you’ve come to entrepreneurship, you may find yourself needing some direction. You’re just trying to figure it out as you go, and guess what—so is everyone else! This manifesto is here to give you the guidance you crave and to let you know we’re in it together.” 
Doing Ethics with Our Brains
June 13, 2018 - By: John Hooker
“We are told that we live in a post-truth age. We can’t reach consensus because we no longer acknowledge a rational basis for resolving disputes. Ethics was an early casualty of this retreat from reason.”
Resolving the Green Paradoxes: Thriving Under Energy Transition Uncertainties
June 13, 2018 - By: Ricardo G. Barcelona
“The default policy mantra, 'Subsidize your way to decarbonize the economy,' seldom delivers, yet lenders follow suit by limiting funding to coal-fired power assets. With these twin actions, one would think we would have the wind and the sun energize our economies—but they do not.”
