The bridge Easily Burned - thank you for the amazing comments
I recently got a note via Twitter from a colleague. He had noticed I unfollowed him on Twitter, and with a vaguely hinted tone of ill-will, he had forwarded me a short article called "Never burn a bridge, never".After some soul searching, and a bit of research, I recalled the reason I had stopped following him. It was after he shared an article filled with largely exaggerated facts about an organization I highly respect, The World Economic Forum...

Los puntos ciegos de las empresas @competia  http://wef.ch/1JG6OZy via @wef
 ·  Translate
En un auto, los puntos ciegos son las zonas del camino que no se pueden ver por el espejo retrovisor o los espejos laterales. Un conductor siempre debe tenerlos presente y ser consciente de los peligros potencialmente mortales que pueden esconder. Las empresas también pueden tener puntos ciegos, y pueden resultar igualmente costosos, haciendo que …

Les entreprises ont de nombreux angles morts, ces zones non visibles d'où peut provenir le danger. Elles peuvent pourtant s'en prémunir. par Estelle Metayer, professeure adjointe à McGill University.

Excellent, excellent article, +Estelle Metayer . 
I think this is the number one reason why businesses fail by "unforced error". To me, it's inexcusable.

When is the last time you burned a bridge ?

There was a time when I totally subscribed to the 'burn no bridges' rule; however I found myself in a situation a couple of years ago where I realised that the only way forward was to prevent any chance of return. Whilst there have been some awkward consequences it has largely been the best decision I ever made.
The issue of our reaction to online activity is important and I like your observations.

Story
Tagline
Competia. I work with CEOs and boards to avoid strategic blindspots. Governance. Competitive Intelligence. Social Media. Trends.
Introduction
I am an expert in Competitive and Strategic Intelligence. My research focuses on how managers, CEOs, and board members build and improve their strategic planning and/or competitive intelligence function to avoid strategic blindspots.

I am a public speaker ( I presented in 2012 in Davos on "Sensing Weak Signals").

A former consultant at McKinsey & Company, I gained first-hand practical experience while managing competitive intelligence, business development and strategic planning at CAE Inc. My career began at ING Bank in the Netherlands and in Poland, studying the financial risks of expanding into emerging countries.

As adjunct professor at McGill University, I teach with Henry Mintzberg. I am also a guest lecturer at International Masters Program in Practicing Management led by Lancaster University, McGill, the IMB (India) and INSEAD and regularly teach at IMD (Lausanne). I was the recipient of the Arista Sunlife Award for „Entrepreneur of the Year – 2000“ and was a finalist in 2001 for the Award „Women of Merit“ from the YWCA.

I am a past board member of World Youth Canada and the Grands Ballets Canadiens.
