Leadership is a lonely road, but it's a path that many have experienced. We can learn from each other.

Competition creates productivity, but it can stifle creativity. This is the difference between industry science and academic science. Faster is not always better.

I love the passion and drive of this show pitch. Grant Cardone is an international sales expert who's taking to television/video to add some formulaic reality editing to the sales industry and the job seekers mission.

While this show has many potentials, the show is injected with Cardone's unique personality which is the overall entertainment value proposition. He's right, where the audience lies, is within the millions of unemployed and disenfranchised talents across the country.  They will be motivated by the passion of the show and they will learn from Cardone and his team the strategies they use to succeed.

As far as its applications in the scientific field, scientists have a unique DNA in their drive through scarcity. In the world of independent research and science business, ingenuity and determination are the resources that move the discoveries. The lessons that can be learned in sales and negotiations can also be applied to building bridges between the scientific field and the rest of business and politics. Science could use a little more financial support from business and more policy support from government. The way to do that is through selling.

Sales is not a dirty word or representative of the used car salesmen of the 70s. Its a necessity of human societies. Check out Daniel Pink's new book, To Sell is Human, to see why this is true. And while you're checking his book out, check out Grant Cardone and be motivated by his own stories in sales.

A+ Students vs B+ Students; scientists vs managers; mathematical science vs social science. Rather than compete against each other, what can they learn from each other?
