Generation Leadership > From 'Thought Leadership' to 'Upstreaming Conversations' | Stuart ...
[Stuart Henshall] Jim McGee writes that Thought Leadership risks becoming an empty marketing phrase just when it is becoming essential to longer term success. He concludes that organizations need to rely on a steady stream of new ideas, and need a foundation of explicit reflection to continuously build and test mini-theories on how their actions lead to outcomes.
[The FASTForward Blog] The FASTForward Blog » Rethinking thought leadership as an ...: Changing the culture to incorporate time for reflection is a better approach, as the Canadian Army has learned – “When they are out in the field and return from a patrol, the exhausted soldiers relax together in small, tightly-knit groups - [Professor] Irwin calls them “nesting circles” - and recount the events of the day or the mission.”
[Tuned In] The LOST Finale and Season 6, Reconsidered - Tuned In - TIME.com: The biggest problem is that, knowing that these are our characters in the afterlife (or in their last pre-death moments of consciousness, as Juliet's dying words might indicate), their various stories and alternative realities”Jack as a dad, Ben as a teacher, &c.”read as a way of working through their problems and correcting the mistakes of their past. But I, at least, had spent five years thinking of the Island as a place where the characters tried to achieve redemption and correct the mistakes of their past.
[The Oil Drum - Discussions about Energy and Our Future] The Oil Drum: Campfire | Fibber McGee, Molly, and Your Energy Future: During the 1973 and later in the 1979 energy crisis, there were still many men who were still relatively young that served in WWII, both in the coast guard, the U.S. Navy, and other branches of the U.S. military (and by relatively young, I mean still working, about the age the last baby boomers are now.) The war effort did indeed consume a considerable amount of oil, but not nearly as much as could be saved by rationing of the entire civilian population. The rationing allowed for the average user to have the 4 gallons per week discussed in the radio program (the so called "A" stamp) The "B" stamp allowed 8 gallons, and was for people critical to the war effort, war plant workers, Red 'C' stickers indicated physicians, ministers, mail carriers and railroad workers, "T" for truckers, and a rare set of "X" stickers went to members of Congress and "other VIP" persons needing to travel, and was the absolute status item of the day.
[Naperville Potluck] Are you worried about swine flu - Naperville Potluck: If I'm wrong and people are dropping like flies a week from now, or two weeks from now, I'll be happy to admit that I was wrong and will never question anyone for jumping on the bandwagon like this again - will anyone who is crying about how Obama isn't protecting this country from this horrible threat do the same thing? Sadly, I doubt it - most likely they will be on to the next conspiracy theory, or back to screaming socialism, or (insert fear of the week here).
[News] Pope accepts Bishop John Magee's resignation. Will Cardinal Sean ...: It was the steely resolve to confront the evils he found when he became Pope, including the large numbers of freemasons in the Vatican, many of them linked to the now-notorious secret lodge run by Licio Gelli, P2, that was not spotted by some of those who elected him, thinking it would be business as usual, that this kindly, mild-mannered bishop was highly unlikely to prove a problem to them. In fact they needed him dead within 33 days.

Remember this team won 29 games it is not like the playoffs were in “jeopardy”.
[Television Tropes & Idioms - Recent Changes] NCIS - Television Tropes & Idioms: It's worth noting that Gibbs had just congratulated Abby with his customary kiss on the cheek and a "well done, Abbs," as is typical, and Palmer then leaned forward as if expecting the same. What exactly the implications of this are, this Troper will not speculate upon, but it's worth noting nontheless.
[Cricketdiane's Weblog] Strange Conspiracy in a Land of Freedom, Honor and Integrity 3 ...: The 9/11 Commission Report evaluated such so-called Wag the Dog theories (the strikes being motivated to deflect attention from domestic, political troubles), and found no reason to believe them, nor disbelieve the testimony and assertions of former President Clinton, former Vice President Gore, CIA Chief Tenet, nor former security advisors Berger and Clarke that the destruction of Al Shifa was still, as of 2004, a justifible national security target.
