What If We’re Wrong – 03

What If We’re Wrong – 03

Climate Change Now there’s an interesting topic! Of course there are at least two camps on the climate change thing. One is that the climate is changing and that mankind is causing or at least exacerbating the change. A second camp is that yes, the climate is changing but it’s a natural phenomenon and mankind […]

What If We’re Wrong?

We “See” What We Believe I’m not saying we are wrong. And I’m certainly not saying we should plan to be wrong. But what if . . . ? [I think this may well be an ongoing series of posts!] I’ve been thinking more and more about how we’ve gotten so much wrong. From the […]

Complexity and Transformation

(This is the final post in a four part series on how growing complexity is transforming our lives.) Continuous Transformation: The common lament these days is that the pace of change is on an exponential trajectory. We struggle to keep up. Knowledge (and of course data) is increasing by leaps and bounds every second. All facets of […]

Complexity and Forecasting

The Complexity Part: I find that neuroscience (trying to understand the brain / mind / body interdependence in sentient life) and quantum physics (specifically particle entanglement and uncertainty) are perhaps the most confusing, complex and barely comprehensible subjects I study. The more I read on those topics the more I realize that reality is in the eye […]

Leadership Imperative

Leadership Imperative

The past does not help predict the future. Why? It’s simple. Nothing is really quite the same as it was in the past. And, we like to lament, our world is getting ever more complex at an accelerating pace. We, the curious, hairless apes, seem bent on accelerating that complexity even faster. We cannot help ourselves—we […]

Leaders of Hope

The Swamp of Innovation It’s hard to remember that our task is to drain the swamp when the alligators of failure keep taking bites out of our hope and persistence. We all know the story of Edison and his 10,000 tries to find the right construction for the light bulb enclosure and filament. How does […]

Leading Forward

I’ve heard it said that if you aren’t moving your organization forward, you’re dying. There is no such thing as standing still. Can’t Go Backwards The reason that you can’t go backwards is simple. You are not the same person. Your organization is not the same organization. The marketplace has moved on. Your customers have […]

The Devil is in the Details

Yep, the devil is in the details. Meaning what, exactly? What are your intentions when you speak those words out loud or mumble them to yourself? If you’re reminding yourself that you haven’t thought this project through enough to understand what’s involved, then fine. If you’re sounding a cautionary note for me, as a would […]

‘Satiable Curiosity

IN the High and Far-Off Times the Elephant, O Best Beloved, had no trunk. He had only a blackish, bulgy nose, as big as a boot, that he could wriggle about from side to side; but he couldn’t pick up things with it. But there was one Elephant—a new Elephant—an Elephant’s Child—who was full of […]

There Is Never Enough

There Is Never Enough

I recently heard Garry Ridge, CEO of WD40, suggest that no matter what we do, “There is never enough Time, Treasure, Talent or Technology.” In other words, if we wait until we have all the “necessary” components fully in place we will never get started. As one politician put it, “You go to war with […]
