I was thrilled to be a contributor to this article with an interactive platformm for 20 Questions for Business Leaders.  
The history of business is the story of entrepreneurs, executives, leaders, and employees, all of whom along the way add to the theory of management. For the 20th anniversary of strategy+business, we, the editors, decided to track the milestones of management history. This interactive catalog is the result.

1st Lt. Shaye Haver, 25, and Capt. Kristen Griest, 26, received their Ranger tabs Friday, becoming the first women ever to successfully complete the U.S. Army's Ranger School at Fort Benning, Ga. — a grueling course that puts a premium on physical strength and endurance.

“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.” ― Ernst F. Schumacher

I am thrilled to have contributed to this project:

About “20 Questions for Business Leaders”

For the 20th anniversary of strategy+business,  the editors and staff of Strategy & Business Magazine celebrated this grand story of management thinking by holding, in effect, a grand party. We’d invite all the luminaries of management thought, from antiquity to today, to join us in spirit. Or at least to have their ideas in the room. And you’re invited too.
This catalog will give you an initial taste of the result: a browsable, ever-increasing compilation of management ideas, recast and reframed as we think only s+b can do it. We published only a small portion of it in print, of course. This is the rest of the catalog, in its evolving complexity. It’s a kind of genealogy chart of management ideas, showing their sources, their influences, and a little bit about how they are put into practice.
We started this catalog with a simple but grandiose idea: We’d celebrate our magazine’s history by tracking the most influential business ideas throughout history. We invited some of the most insightful business historians and observers we know to a workshop. Participants came prepared with lists of what they considered the milestones of management history. We spent the day posting ideas on a conference room wall, grouping them, and trying to get to the heart of each with an incisive phrase or reference.
We ended up with about 400 entries, more or less organized by theme. Then we refined them to the version you see here. We found that each group of ideas could be fairly well summed up in a single question and there happened to be about 20 of them — 20 questions for 20 years of s+b, a heartening coincidence.
Of course, this catalog of management thinking isn’t the last word. There never will be a last word with practical philosophy; there is always more coming, because the problems are never fully solved. But that means there will always be another chapter, another issue. As we mark our 80th issue, we hope strategy+business will continue to be one of the primary places to find that next great management idea, and understand what it could mean for you and your organization.
Our outcome was a treasure trove of resources - we put our focus on the questions and added resources that have informed our thinking.

@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)

We can never know everything in ourselves or others.
