Effective leaders know that the first essential step to changing people's behavior is to understand ..read more

It is a place you bring yourself and others to mentally. It is defined by Admiral and former Navy SEAL Bob Harward in The Gouge!, as “the contract we all have with humanity, sharing the best of everyone for the collective well-being of all.

IDEAS shared have the power to expand perspectives, change thinking, and move lives. Here are two ideas for the curious mind to engage with: I. Peter Block on freedom and accountability : “Freedom being the choice to be a creator of our own experience and accept the unbearable responsibility that goes with that. Out of this insight grows the idea that perhaps the real task of leadership is to confront people with their freedom. This may be the ultimate act of love that is called for from those who hold power over others. Choosing our freedom is also the source of our willingness to choose to ..read more

IDEAS shared have the power to expand perspectives, change thinking, and move lives. Here are two ideas for the curious mind to engage with: I. Professor L.A. Paul on how to think about important life choices: “As we live our lives, we find ourselves confronted with a brute fact about how little we can know about our futures—just when it is most important to us that we do know.

What would change if you began to think of that person as your customer? It’s a question most people never consider. How does the ..read more

IDEAS shared have the power to expand perspectives, change thinking, and move lives. Here are two ideas for the curious mind to engage with: I. Michel de Montaigne on safeguards: “The infancies of all things are feeble and weak.

Martyn Newman on self-reliance: “Being self-reliant does not mean that you just go out and do your own thing. It means being secure enough in yourself to turn ..read more
