Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 2, 2013 11:48 AM

The opening lines are about traditional versus collaborative leaders. I think there has always been collaborative leadership. Great leaders through history surrounded themselves not with sycophants but with those who came with questions. Community emerged, trust revealed, and greatness shone through. We need to believe we are not reinventing the wheel. It exists and needs to be dusted off.

DPG plc's curator insight, March 16, 2013 7:08 PM

love this - where do you sit?

Damarque's comment, April 16, 2013 11:05 AM
Ivon makes a good point. Is this not true however for most 'new' business and leaderships ideas. Even with (internet) technology as major disruptor in many industries, the fundamentals of value creation (management/leadership and innovation) have not changed. At the root of all value creation (which is the purpose of business) lies collaboration. The more unique the players in the collaboration game, the more value can be created, provided the game is played according to some key rules of engagement. Yes, collaboration as a powerful concept is not new. Facilitating productive collaboration is a whole different story. Perhaps that is where the challenges and opportunities for new leadership lie.

wanderingsalsero's curator insight, March 27, 2013 4:51 AM

I haven't read this article but I knew right away, when I saw the title, that it was a valuable subject.  I think that if more business people knew who much curation helps their 'don't have time' problem, they'd really be enthusiastic about it. 

 

There's a tendancy, I believe, among business owners to think that people who read their blog, or website (or any other content) expect it to be Pulitzer Prize quality.  I don't think that's true at all.  Nor do customers expect a LOT of content.  They just want to know what the business owner thinks and (in many cases) what they're 'up to'.

 

Curation makes it so easy for business owners to give them that info.

wanderingsalsero's curator insight, April 6, 2013 7:43 PM

Add curation in with mobile video and travel blogging and I think you've got a winning combination.
