when schools integrate social-emotional learning (SEL) into the curriculum, academic achievement increases an average of 11 percentile points.
Do we make it easy for kids to be kind in schools? The internationally growing trend of kindness meters might have the power to promote the spread of kindness in schools. What would that be like? I recently read an article about kindness meters popping up around North County San Diego, Calif.

If the U.B.I. comes to be seen as a kind of insurance against a radically changing job market, rather than simply as a handout, the politics around it will change.
Experiments with guaranteed income have shown resoundingly positive results. All that’s stopping us is politics.

Find the right balance to inspire your audience.
Showing emotion can be a good thing, but you still want to come across as focused, not frazzled.

“Learning about the social world is a really important task of adolescence.”
Getting a lot of “likes” on social media triggers the same reward center in the brain as thoughts of sex, money or ice cream.

What’s our biggest risk in this, and what’s your fallback position?
The best leaders don’t engage in monologues; they stimulate conversations. They understand conversations are not competitions to be won, but opportunities to enrich, inspire, challenge, illuminate and learn. So, what makes for great dialog? Great questions. I’ve always said, a leader’s job is not to leverage their people, but to create [...]

If you are not genuinely curious about what can be discovered, what others can contribute, you can’t fake it.
Curiosity is a main motivator for a leader -- both personal curiosity and that inspired and encouraged in others, not the intrusive curiosity of the voyeur, snoop, busybody or idle prying peson. It is curiosity that is the gateway to opportunity. It is the curiosity that celebrates unfolding ...

The mediocrity principle, devised by the 16th century mathematician Copernicus, suggests there’s nothing unusual or special about Earth, humanity, and our place in the cosmos, and that if anything we’re actually quite banal in large scheme of things.
The disturbing Fermi Paradox suggests we should have made contact with an extraterrestrial civilization by now, yet we haven’t. By applying a 500-year-old philosophical principle, a Cornell University researcher has shown that the Great Silence is not unexpected—we just need to give it more time.

Two different kinds of insights lead to category creation. One is a technology insight, which is the invention of a new technology that needs to find a market; the other is a market insight, which identifies a new opportunity that could be met by building a new technology.

Corporations are weighed down by the deep, constant pull toward running the existing business, and it can make them blind to their own technology insights.
A new book looks at how category creation has enabled Corning to thrive since 1865, most recently with category king Gorilla Glass, used in most smartphones.

As we get older, we start to get rigid.
One of the most common questions we receive, unsurprisingly, is along the lines of What one piece of advice would you recommend to become a better thinker? The question is kind of cheating. There is, of course, no one thing, and if Farnam Street is a testament to any idea, it’s that you must pull from …

You have to speak up in meetings. That was an important turning point to me. I had thought that unless I say something brilliant, I shouldn’t say anything. Three quarters of the other people were saying stupid stuff.
The former chief executive officer of eBay and HP, Whitman talks about speaking up, why a fast no is better than a slow yes and what advice she’d give to her 20-year-old self.

Learning to do better things better.
Introduction

I work with customers and partners to create and deliver innovative solutions to business problems. My experience with companies of all sizes provides a unique and varied perspective that allows me to collaborate with business leaders and uncover details that might be otherwise overlooked.  I work with clients on initiatives involving global delivery teams and that are aimed at significant productivity and financial improvement.

 Having managed consulting offices for Coopers & Lybrand and ACT, I understand and have dealt with staff retention issues, project management and P&L responsibility. With Perot Systems and Litton Enterprise Solutions, I led large outsourcing sales efforts to successful completion. I sold application performance management (APM) solutions for CA, and at Sybase, I worked closely with many of Wall Street's large financial firms on Database, Replication and Disaster Recovery initiatives. Now at Symphony Teleca, I am directly involved in offshore outsourcing engagements and lead a key account in establishing a new model for global relationship management.

 I have a bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from St. Anselm College (NH), and also studied at Trinity College (CT) and Schiller College in Heidelberg, Germany. I live in CT with my wife and two youngest children, and enjoy reading, running, soccer and darts.
