Mon, 2016-05-30 13:02

At the core of our existence is a common pool of energy, a deep well of creative capacity which we access whenever we share a sense of belonging to and caring for something larger than ourselves.

As Henry Mintzberg argued, we need to shift our focus from leadership to what he termed ‘communityship’ in order to build greater organizational creativity for the future.

Mon, 2016-05-30 11:36

Joanne Liu does not have much time to sit around watching Netflix, but on vacation recently, she caught a series that has captured her imagination:Homeland, the acclaimed political thriller about the fevered plots of U.S. spies and their terrorist enemies. The show stresses the intelligence community’s fallible humanity, but also its brutal comfort with collateral damage. Watching it, Dr. Liu says, “You start thinking, ‘How could Kunduz be a mistake?’”
