I don’t like to think of myself as lazy, but when I came across the ideas that inspired this post that suggested being lazy and clever could make you an excellent leader, I was a little less inclined to shrug off the label.
Networks can defeat the tyranny of geography. Unfortunately, there are major unintended consequences. Among the most severe problem is the faulty approach to collaboration. People use technology when face-to-face is required.
