Audvisor: A Cool Friend’s Cool New Project

Vie, 20/03/2015 - 16:42

When we interviewed Rajesh Setty for our Cool Friends collection, he described himself as a serial entrepreneur. Since then, he's skipped from one good idea to another, always with the the same goal, the tag line for his blog, "Bringing Ideas to Life, With Love!" Tom participated in a recent project, Audvisor. In Setty's words: […]

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 […]

Tweetstream:Leadership, Cognitive Biases, Etc.

Lun, 09/03/2015 - 15:32

FYI: TP: Every day for every one of us—teen and octogenarian alike—offers numerous leadership opportunities. What are you waiting for? TP: Leadership's Big Four: Enthusiasm. Acknowledgement/intense listening. Helping others when you haven't got the time. Reading/learning. Michael St. Lawrence: Bonus Fifth: Lead to somewhere interesting and worthwhile. TP/My #5: "Be playful." I never trust anyone […]

Profit Through Putting People First(“Good Guys”) Business Book Club

Mié, 04/03/2015 - 18:43

Most business books focus on what's broken. This selection focuses on organizations that work & shine—by (actually, far beyond lip service) "Putting People First." Why not a book club? I've known organizations where such groups had very high impact. Nice Companies Finish First: Why Cutthroat Management Is Over—and Collaboration Is In, by Peter Shankman with […]

Getting Things (That Matter) Done

Jue, 26/02/2015 - 21:03

In 2013 I wrote a paper titled "Getting Things (THAT MATTER) Done Against the Odds and in the Inky-black Shadow Cast by the Guardians of the Status Quo." It is based on my personal experience with big change projects such as the McKinsey project that led to In Search of Excellence, which "rebranded McKinsey" according […]

Resurrection(And Irritation)(And Bewilderment)(And Fervent Belief)(And Fervent Belief)(And Prayer)

Mar, 24/02/2015 - 01:07

I can hardly complain about my book sales—from 1982 to the present. But there is one of my books that has, in my opinion, been wildly under-appreciated. Namely my 1999 The Professional Service Firm50. It was part of a 3-book series that we called "The Work Matters": The Professional Service Firm50: Fifty Ways to Transform […]

Muffed Answer Leads to Rethink

Vie, 20/02/2015 - 17:45

After a recent presentation at the Auckland Business School, I was asked a pointed question—and flubbed the answer. I was asked if my emphasis on "people-development-first" amounted to keeping unnecessary workers on the payroll. I said of course not—and stopped there. Whoops. But that stopping point (no "make work") has in fact been my starting […]

Auckland Business School

Vie, 13/02/2015 - 13:55

Taking a break from his New Zealand "timeout on the beach" (TP: “Sorry! What else can I say to my VERY snowed-in New England neighbors and colleagues?”), Tom is spending two days at the Auckland Business School. Among other things, he is giving two formal lectures. The first—titled "Necessary Revolution: Re-Imagine EXCELLENCE!"—is to alums and […]

Coppins Para Sea Anchors

Jue, 12/02/2015 - 00:33

Bill and Ryan Coppins with Tom The Coppins Para Sea Anchors story is one of Tom's favorite Mittelstand models. Founded by W.A. Coppins in 1928, the company has a contract with no less than the U.S. Navy as well as the Norwegian Coastal Administration (Coast Guard). Being located close to Tom's winter haven, they invited […]

Thought Leaders 2014

Mié, 04/02/2015 - 18:52

GDI/Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute, a Swiss think tank, and MIT teamed up to create "Thought Leaders 2014: The Most Influential Thinkers," a just-released, algorithmically determined list of "Who is influencing what we think today? Whose ideas are influencing oursEngagement in the "blogosphere," "twittersphere," and Wikipedia page citations across languages were among the many variables considered. Nos. […]

An Effective “Brand You”

Jue, 08/01/2015 - 15:45

This, from a brief tweetstream ... An effective "Brand You" is not a "marketing promise," it is a track record of demonstrated/sustained excellence. An effective "Brand You" is marked by understatement, not overstatement. An effective brand you is not about solos, it's about the power of your peer network. An effective brand you is 10% […]

Here are a couple of recent tweetstreams perhaps worth your time and attention ... BRAND YOU MISUNDERSTOOD Many get the "Brand You" idea ass-backwards; they see it as selfish/solo/ego-driven. But effective brand you is skill and network driven; that is, it is by and large selfless. An effective Brand You learns constantly and delivers stellar […]

Surprise, Transformation & Excellence through “Spontaneous Discovery”:A Personal Saga

Vie, 12/12/2014 - 18:23

FYI, this is a revision of an antique—but arguably more relevant than ever (PDF version also available): "Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self-conscious and anything self-conscious is lousy. You simply must ... Do things."—Ray Bradbury "By indirection direction find."—Hamlet, II. I "To be playful is to allow for unlimited possibility."—James Carse "No one […]

Herein the outline of my presentation to PAI Market Partners Conference on 05 December in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic: 1. "Software is eating the world."—Marc Andreessen.
