What stands out is our exceptional capacity for generosity and mutual trust, those moments in which we act like no species that has ever come before us.
Want to know what makes us stand apart from our ape cousins?Cooperation—no other animal does it quite like us. Developmental psychologist Michael Tomasello explains why if chimps had a self-help bestseller, it would be titled, How to Outwit Rivals and Get More Fruit.

Getting business advice from Richard Branson is equivalent to getting advice on picking winning lottery numbers from someone who won the lottery, twice.
Chances are, you've heard from various business "experts" about leadership and turbulence. I've already addressed The Leadership Scam. In this post, I want to talk about turbulence and other analogies that are leading businesses into the tar pits of obscurity. One True AnalogyIn business, executives set strategy, managers work with budgets, real workers do the hard job of serving customers, and the consultants are in charge of PowerPoint presenta...

Judith Rodin, president of the Rockefeller Foundation, describes how to build the capacity to survive disastrous events in her book: The Resilience Dividend. 

In the book, Rodin outlines a framework for achieving resilience, the mind-set needed to implement and utilize it, and practices that support it.

Introduction
I am dedicated to improving the quality of leadership in the 21st century by influencing how leaders think, learn, behave and impact society. 

I help leaders rethink, redefine and reshape their organizations and better prepare themselves for new futures. 

I believe that clarity, mastery, creativity, relevance and agility are essential to grow responsive and purpose driven organizations that are capable of adapting to the major shifts happening in society. 

I live in more than one world. This qualifies me to wear different hats as a thinker, leadership advisor, speaker, learning strategist, writer and curator. My careers are linked by curiosity and a passion for people and ideas that can't be confined in boxes. What drives me is pattern recognition, combinatorial creativity, cross-pollination and integrative thinking.

On Twitter people list me in groups like: Visionaries, New Era Leaders, Master Minds, Foresighters, Strategy and Innovation, Future of Work, Leadership Development, Game Changing People, and my favorite: "Twitters who talk about things that interests me." 

My previous work has featured in esteemed media like Harvard Business Review, Financial Times, The Economist, CNN, The Wall Street Journal, BBC, Forbes, Management Today, The Sunday Times, The Globe and Mail, Developing Leaders, Global Focus, China Economic Review, Personnel Today, Emerald Insight, Training and Development, Strategic Direction, The National, La Depeche, Management Issues, and all major Scandinavian media outlets. 

Currently I am working on a book, with Richard Martin, exploring the importance of generalism in the modern organization.
