Five Leadership Qualities Great Executives Must Have | #Communication | Scoop.it
For reasons that aren’t exactly clear to me, there’s a powerful tendency to overcomplicate the whole notion of leadership: what it is, why it matters, and how it manifests itself.I’m not saying it’s
Alfred Hankell's insight:

The real challenge of leadership: the ability to push aside anything that’s not directly tied to setting a great strategy, executing upon it brilliantly, and putting terrific people in the right positions.

Michael Britt's comment, April 16, 9:11 AM
Here's one thing that I think is not addressed well in this video or indeed on other resources that address curation: the Explain part of her FACETS acronym. I agree that ideally the curator should explain why any particular item of the collection is included in the curation, but also I think it's important to explain how one item relates to another. I don't see how this can be done with any of the curation tools I have seen. How can the curator effectively explain to the visitor what the relationship is between different items in the collection in a way that's easy for the visitor to follow? Right now it seems to me that the curator would have to say in his/her notes, "This item is similar to the one I added to the collection back in January....take a look at...go back to..." etc. That's awkward and clumsy. Any solutions to this?
