Where the mind does not work
Hindu Business Line
Talking on the cell phone while driving, eating and reading, or my personal favourite — chatting with wife and continuing to work — are all examples of divided attention.
Bill Palladino - MLUI's insight:

My first question to her these days, when I call my wife, is "are you driving?"  If so, I immediately hang up.  I don't talk on the phone when I drive, and I'd prefer she didn't.  So I'd agree with this.

Bill Palladino - MLUI's insight:

12 Signs of Cowardly Leadership - Forbes

12 Signs of Cowardly Leadership - Forbes | Whole Brain Leadership | Scoop.it
Courageous leadership. You hear that term a lot these days. It is a call to commit and act; to make hard choices and take risks; and to do what’s unpopular and right. Language can be a funny thing though.
Bill Palladino - MLUI's insight:

I would agree whole-heartedly with this article.  Especially like #3 "evade hard choices" and #5 "afraid to discipline."  I've seen these pieces in particular create havoc in otherwise well-running companies.

“Special Forces” Innovation: How DARPA Attacks Problems

“Special Forces” Innovation: How DARPA Attacks Problems | Whole Brain Leadership | Scoop.it

Over the past 50 years, the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has produced an unparalleled number of breakthroughs. Arguably, it has the longest-standing, most consistent track record of radical invention in history. Its innovations include the internet; RISC computing; global positioning satellites; stealth technology; unmanned aerial vehicles, or “drones”; and micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), which are now used in everything from air bags to ink-jet printers to video games like the Wii. Though the U.S. military was the original customer for DARPA’s applications, the agency’s advances have played a central role in creating a host of multibillion-dollar industries.

Bill Palladino - MLUI's insight:
