U.S. Government It’s Time to Show Some Leadership

This blog was originally posted at’s-time-to-show-some-leadership/.

It’s not a secret. We’ve seen it happen continuously for centuries. Innovation, the big, bold future changing innovation, is driven by limitation. Almost always. When Steve Jobs went maniac to create the ipod in about nine months, he insisted it fit easily in a pocket, it looked… Continue

Are Fortune’s Most Admired Companies Really Admired?

Fortune magazine just announced its annual list of most admired companies. Apple was number one. No surprise there. But what is absolutely amazing is that Goldman Sachs was number 8. Huh.

The results of defining business as solely materialistic have created an inherently exploitative system only seeking to maximize short-term profit while minimizing corporate social responsibility and… Continue

Wisdom: We Need More Leadership Like This

Posted on January 22, 2010 at 12:23pm 0 Comments

This blog was originally posted at the Thought Rocket blog, The Greatest Thing.

It’s easy to be outraged at the incompetence and greed apparent in business leadership. Titanic ethical failures like Enron, failures in judgment by General Motors and greed-induced insanity by our major financial institutions have caused millions to suffer. Leadership failure is so bad the Economist magazine reports that only 2% of… Continue
