The 15-Second “Pep talk”(And more)

Mié, 17/06/2015 - 22:33

Summary to a colleague of my recent 15-minute speech ("pep talk"): Don't worry about '21st century leadership' (my assigned topic).

The (REAL) Story on Management

Mar, 17/03/2015 - 17:36

What follows is the byproduct of an enhanced (>140 characters) twitter discussion in February 2015 at @tom_peters: TP: "Management" is a dreary/misleading word. E.g., mgt/standard usage = shouting (or whispering, if you're a "Theory Y" aficionado) orders in the slave galley. Consider, please, a more encompassing/more accurate definition: "'Management' is the arrangement of human affairs […]
