With the latest Facebook scandal I am even more urgent about our use of neuroscience for leadership - not just sales. Deeply concerned that we need to strengthen our internal resolve in the midst of all the analytics & marketing. I hope this curation of #influence contributes to your longview imprint. Afterall, every "like" every RT is autobiographical.

With so many options and such little friction - I am deeply concerned with how discernment or critical thinking skills are being taught in US high school and colleges. What are some great ideas, programs, examples lest I loose hope?

I believe our ability to collaborate is our steepest learning curve – especially for American’s as we have been raised and fostered as individuals. Seeking to be experts and self sufficient is in the breast milk I have been raised on. I am finding a limit to the nourishment this model provides in a global emergent market.

In a “sharing economy,” the hardest part is having to trust that you will get the acknowledgement you need and most of all, will not be left out as your trade hands, improve and take on a life of their own. Just like a child grows independently, so do ideas, and the same psychological individuation is required.

Perhaps this is why I think we need to do a better job of supporting, acknowledging and affirming one another. If more people feel “safer” in sharing their ideas, I think we will get a lot more brilliance from everyone around us.

Believe me, knowing this intellectually, doesn’t mean I don’t have a lot of insecurity in my bones.

Perhaps in this writing, I will find more courage to honor and release the wonderful ideas that have somehow decided to land in my life.

Having insight isn’t so much about being intelligent as it is about being present. Here are my best resources on #collaboration.

Walking bravely forward,
Jennifer

 How many people do you know that can eat at a buffet and eat only the right food choices and the right food amounts? Not I.

Everywhere I turn there are mental buffets full of options. We have too many choices.

The rub today is “to decide.” As you know “decide” comes from the Latin root that means “to cut.” When you choose you “cut” away all possibility.

I am writing this post today to support our ability to strengthen our #discernment.

Nietzsche reminds us that “we only hear those questions for which we are in a position to find answers.”

“When [what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine] come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

@Rdigital Life Interview with Ramona Pringle

Idea Mash Up with Tom Rand

Here are some themes that define my coaching/consulting practice:

The most competitive skill for the 21st century is agility which we define as resilience, responsiveness & reflection.

Too many people are associating innovation with clever or intelligent; innovation also comes from authentic curiosity and deep pain. 

We have to get better at suspending our need for immediate gratification so we can critically think things through for longer time horizon.

It is not about competition, it is about being in great condition.

This is not the age of information. 
This is not the age of information. 
This is the age of resonance.

Heroism masks design.

The most important app is your awareness as that informs the utilization of every other app.

Your competitive advantage is not where you work or what you do. Your competitive advantage comes from the accuracy of your interpretation of reality and the way you articulate your life experience.

You are not a node; you are a frequency. 

The soul of your business is the collective awareness & articulation of the individuals that make up the entire enterprise ecosystem.

If you want to change the world, change your life. 
Micro-shifts create macro-impact.

In all things circulation is much more vital than possession. Seek to be a conduit.

Knowledge has emerged from a solid > to liquid > to a gas. Our role as curators has merged from containing content to actually becoming the container.

We have come from a time of "think = learn" to a time where "feel = learn."

It is no longer country v. country or city v. city; today ideas are countries. 

My true north:
We have an imperfect but positive duty to seek our own perfection and the happiness of others.
Immanuel Kant

Favorite quotes:
We have an imperfect, positive duty to seek our own perfection and the happiness of others ~ Immanuel Kant

Life of a frontrunner is hard one; he/she will suffer & many of these injuries will not be accidental ~ Pele

People know what they do; frequently they know why they do what they do; what they don't know is what what they do does ~ Michel Foucault

"The best thing for being sad," replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, "is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.” 
― T.H. White, The Once and Future King


Don't get involved in partial problems, take flight to view over whole problem, even if view is still not a clear one ~ Wittgenstein 

The important thing is this: to be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.
Charles Dubois

It would be difficult to exaggerate the degree to which we are influenced by those we influence. 
Eric Hoffer

Wind extinguishes a candle and energizes fire; be the fire and wish for the wind.
Nicholas Nassim Taleb

Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world. 
Archimedes

Society needs visionaries of means not dreamers of ends. Once we have the means the ends will reveal themselves. 
David R. Hawkins

A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us. 
John Steinbeck

A culture is made -- or destroyed -- by its articulate voices. 
Ayn Rand


Favorite quotes from my friends:

Your ability to release the potential brilliance of the community depends to a large extend on the quality of interaction between individuals.

Mickey Connolly


Some people think you have to have a conversation to get work done; however, the conversation is the work. 
David Whyte

Now is the time to move from focusing on the dots to actually connecting the dots. 
Ned Kumar

Because learning is such a vital part of organizational survival, the CEO of the company needs to become the Chief Learning Officer. 
David Hodgson

Because resonance causes reverberation, alignment is occurring. 
Sandy Maxey

The faster change is taking place the more important it is we scope out the future.  
Nigel Cameron

"Mommy, does your heart remote control people?" Griffin Sertl (4)

(While I was putting on make-up) "Don't worry, Mom,   beauty will find you." 
Hannah Sertl (10)

We can never know everything in ourselves or others.
