My latest comment...about Colombia and its amazing turnaround over the past decade.
Imagine a country plagued by extremely high murder rates, rampant violence, widespread smuggling and corruption, and organized crime networks that rival the government for authority in many regions of the country. The country is home to the most dangerous city in the world. And last but not least, the country is suffering a civil war that has been raging for decades.   When I’ve described this scenario to friends and colleagues, the two most comm...

My latest post -- about passion and outrage (and the lack thereof)
As the Business Ethics class I teach at Yale concluded this semester, I asked my students to watch the 2012 Wellesley High School graduation speech delivered by David McCullough, Jr. titled “You’re Not Special” (click HERE). I did so to remind them that purpose and impact should be more important than mantel-filling accomplishments. I wanted them to help homeless veterans not to buff up their Rhodes or Fulbright applications but instead to help h...

My latest comment explores the need for us to focus on diversity of experience!
Last week, I attended a seminar run by the National Association of Corporate Directors. Over the course of the many sessions, I heard about everything from cyber-risk management to talent development. Most of the sessions were interesting and informative. One of the discussions about board composition got me thinking about our misplaced need to categorize individuals into particular boxes.Because many corporate boards use recruiters to identify c...

My weekly comment.  would love feedback!
As the U.S. stock markets race to new highs, there has been increasing chatter about a forthcoming correction. Economic chaos reigns in Europe with constant debates about austerity and bailouts, and China seems destined to slow further as its credit-fueled investment boom ends. Commodity markets have tumbled, threatening the economies of Australia, South Africa, and Brazil, to name a few. In short, the economic horizon is cloudy – at best. There ...

My latest comment is about professional happiness...
I had the most fascinating interaction I’ve had with an unknown person this week while boarding a flight from Calgary to Toronto. It was unexpected, confusing, and got me thinking. Here’s what happened:As I was boarding my flight, the gate clerk smiled at me and said, “Have a nice flight, Mr. Happy-Face.” I immediately stopped, creating a traffic jam for the large crowd of Boarding Zone 2 passengers that were behind me. “Excuse me? Did you just c...
