Useful reminder that depression can be experienced as a breakdown in your sense of self and purpose and that finding a true purpose can help you deal with depression and make substantial shifts in your life.

Reminds me that 'competitive advantage' by its nature involves doing something differently to other businesses in the same area. Therefore strategic leaders also need to be doing something that is different. Problem is of course as soon as you have nailed it down, then it is available to all and no longer a competitive advantage. However these tips will keep you ahead of the game at least for a while.

Think about your role as a librarian and aim to develop these habits. It will keep us on the cutting edge of transformation.
Often times we are faced with the temptation to reach for a fast (and potentially wrongheaded) solution. However, a good strategic leader holds steady, synthesizing information from many sources before developing a viewpoint. If your leader lacks some level of peripheral vision, it can leave your company vulnerable to rivals who detect and act on ambiguous signals. We need strategic leaders who will foster open dialogue, build trust and engage key stakeholders, especially when views diverge. Find out how to become the strategic leader your company needs!
It’s a question that’s perplexed philosophers for centuries and scientists for decades: Where does consciousness come from? We know it exists, at least in ourselves. But how it arises from chemistry and electricity in our brains is an unsolved mystery.
Neuroscientist Christof Koch, chief scientific officer at the Allen Institute for Brain Science, thinks he might know the answer. According to Koch, consciousness arises within any sufficiently complex, information-processing system. All animals, from humans on down to earthworms, are conscious; even the internet could be. That’s just the way the universe works.
“The electric charge of an electron doesn’t arise out of more elemental properties. It simply has a charge,” says Koch. “Likewise, I argue that we live in a universe of space, time, mass, energy, and consciousness arising out of complex systems.”
Great to find a leading scientist - Christof Koch - consider other animals have consciousness and even considering complex systems may also have consciousness.
Do we live in a universe where, for reasons we don’t understand, quantum physics simply is the reigning explanation?

Good insight on how you can manage fear
Although fear can feel overwhelming, and defeats more people than any other force in the world, it’s not as powerful as it seems. Fear is only as deep as your mind allows. You are still in control. The key is to acknowledge your fear and directly address it. You must step right up and confront it face to face. This tactic robs fear of its power, instead of fear robbing YOU of…

What a great article this is that is all about listening, continuous conversation, and storytelling. Written by Vick Vaishnavi, it goes way beyond what other posts on listening cover. Yeah!
I like that the author distinguishes between hearing and listening in customer relationships -- and what listening to customers really looks like as a business activity that moves the organization forward.
The quality of your listening with customers, the quality of your ongoing dialogue, will determine how fast you will grow, but also your ability to be sustainable. Ultimately what Vaishnavi is talking about is having dialogue and storytelling as a core competence.
Now in fairness, he never mentions storytelling. But it makes total sense that when in dialogue with customers you want to consciously evoke stories so you can understand their authentic experiences.
And as the author points out, dialogue is a two-way street just like storytelling is. That means shifting your interactions with customers from a "I'll listen to you and take your info back to the org" to "I'll listen to your experience and share in return."
The author does not mention exactly what to say in these customer interactions but here we can take some steps from the storytelling playbook:
Listening, dialogue, storytelling -- these will all bring great benefits to your business!
