It's got to be about Why, not How: How Great Leaders Inspire Action, Simon Sinek

"Why FIRST:  Communication and the Golden Circle:  Why, How, What?  Inspire where others do not.  Profit is JUST a result NOT a reason for existing."

 

Simon's examples include Apple (why so innovative?), Martin Luther King (lead major change, Civil Rights movement), and the Wright brothers (controlled powered manned flight that others did not achieve, tho' were working on.)

Apple:  NOT, What we do, great computers.  Want to buy one?

RATHER:  Everything we do, we believe in challenging the status quo, we believe thinking differently. The way we challenge the status quo is making products that are beautifully designed, simple to use & user friendly.  We happen to make computers.  Want to buy one?

Why You Need To Find Your Purpose | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

It’s time to create fulfillment, meaning, satisfaction and freedom in your life. It’s time to discover your purpose. By far the greatest way to create meaning in your life is to fulfill your deepest inner drive; your purpose.

Leading Blog: A Leadership Blog: The Twelve Absolutes of Leadership | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Gary Burnison considers leadership to be a privilege. Most people like the idea of leadership but few count the cost. He says, “To lead is to be all in, transparent and accessible, calm in the face of upset and even crisis, and always mindful that you are a steward of something bigger than yourself.”

Juan Enriquez: Your online life, permanent as a tattoo | Video on TED.com

What if Andy Warhol had it wrong, and instead of being famous for 15 minutes, we’re only anonymous for that long? In this short talk, Juan Enriquez looks at the surprisingly permanent effects of digital sharing on our personal privacy.

Annette Schmeling's curator insight, May 2, 2013 10:18 AM

Your reputation is now threatened by immortality. How do you want to be remembered? 

Dennis T OConnor's comment, May 2, 2013 11:01 AM
What do you think of the speaker's recommendation that we don't look to deeply into the past of those we love? Is the Electronic Tatoo a curse we all have to live with beyond forever? Or is awareness of our permanent online footprint enough to flip the technology and allow us to build an electronic reputation to be proud of?
Homeschool FL's curator insight, May 3, 2013 6:59 AM

Our children are growing up in a digital world that is completely foreign to how we grew up. We didn't have the Internet as a ubiquitous prescence in our lives. To make things worse, the landscape keeps changing on us, the parents, and the children. It is now, more than ever, crucial to teach our children how to be more than "street smart."

 

It used to be that having street smarts was helpful, because that way you could protect yourself from being taken advantage of. It carries an element of shrewdness, for one's own protection this is a good thing. Nowadays we need to apply that online.

This video is short, but it makes a powerful illustration. Juan Enriquez likens our online activity to an electronic tattoo, virtually permanent. Something we adults need to learn also, but moreover our children, as they grow up in the Internet jungle. And it is a jungle.
