Kare Anderson taught me to actively seek out people who are startlingly different than me, and why this matters so much.
Kare Anderson wonders whether YOU are capable of finding win/win opportunities with people who are very different from you. She describes this unique and powerful skill as being an Opportunity Maker.This role involves three fundamental steps, none of which you can skip: Finding shared interests with others Creating trust Establishing a joint commitment to build on shared interests In all honesty, it took me months to fully grasp what Kare was say...

You want to do something special in life? Bring out the talent in other people.
The best talent is bringing out talent in others, but what if it is very hard to SEE the talent in someone?

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had a great comment about how seeing the light and helping bring out the talent in others will help bring out the best in us all.

“Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality.”

Sage advice Bruce. Best business advice I ever got was to niche my business to small audience and develop authority on the subject. With the Internet being a gigantic filter and a little SEO can go a long way in finding the right traction.

Leadership, in the fewest words possible.
People have written gazillions of words about leadership; that is not my intention. No, my goal today is to provide you with the shortest, simplest path to becoming an effective leader. Once you get past all the bluster about leaders having vision, voice, guts, charisma and numerous other superficial characteristics, leadership [...]

The secret of life, no kidding. Pass the word.
Since most LinkedIn readers are over the age of seven, here's a quick reminder of how a seesaw works. You sit on one end, and another person sits at the other. You use your feet to push your side up in the air, which makes the other person's side go down. Then the other person does the same, and your side goes down. You keep taking turns until one of you gets bored, falls off, or has to go home and take a nap.Every healthy civilization, organizat...
