Leadership is "a process of social influence in which one person can enlist the aid and support of others in the accomplishment of a common task." - Wikipedia

We can be catalysts who accelerate trust among players or we can hobble ourselves. If we wake our senses and work with others, we can embody the paradigm shift that enriches our lives and others. Upgrading our world is not only technical but social. If you want to live an enriched life you cannot control information.

High trust is a dividend, low trust is a tax

Quick question -- are we prepared to see other succeed?

Leaders have a choice -- to lead from a place of love and good faith or from a place of fear and jealousy. Principle-centered leadership embraces experiential learning and sustainable practice. This is no time for business as usual which local divisions are exacerbated in a low trust environment.

Leadership Competencies

The Most Important Leadership Competencies, According to Leaders Around the World


You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.
– Ken Kesey


You cannot be afraid of what others think of you. You cannot control your story, but you can influence how your story is told.

Toward Community

Community means wanting to have success for your neighbors.

Childhood development goes from dependence to independence in a blink of an eye. The next stage: interdependence. How do we collaborate? How do we interact with the local and global community?

Social media means shifting the perception from 'what can i get' or 'what can i broadcast' to 'how can i enrich another's experience.'

If places wish to mature as tourism destinations, the players need to take community binding agents seriously. The proverbial stone in the road is the problem that the 'development' and 'marketing' agents are often not on the same page.

Leadership requires us to pay attention and focus.

We have to grow the pie higher.

tipping point is when you gain critical mass

point of no return - when you get back to the tipping point and when people embody that responsibility, if they don't act on higher knowledge that deeper knowwledge they know they are a fraud if you do not embody that , there will always be that disconnect



Recommended Listening
What makes a great political speech? - There's not much that political commentators agree on but here's one point on which they're united: very few modern day politicians know how to give a great speech. Extend the field to local politics, or to any public ceremony and you'll find the same problem where people drone on for hours, without ever really saying anything. Dennis Glover, former Labor speechwriter, thinks it's vital for our democracy that our politicians learn how to speak properly.
