New research suggests that we use situational ambiguity to justify lies and deceptions. Experts discovered that we tend to lie and cheat only to the extent that we can justify our transgressions. Viewing an issue in shades of gray appears to relax our...

For any organization to be successful, it has to continually innovate and evolve. This is one of the great business lessons that have withstood the test of time.
In his book, True Alignment: Linking Company Culture with Customer Needs for Extraordinary Results, author Edgar Papke notes that one of the keys to organizational success – especially in the area of innovation – is its employees’ ability to openly and confidently express their ideas.
The free flow of new ideas is essential for keeping an organization competitive, and is at the heart of building employee buy-in and getting them to take ownership of both their own work and the company’s objectives.
The human ingenuity within any organisation are it's greatest competitive advantage. Yet according to the latest statistics, over half of todays workers are disengaged .

“Let’s approach this with an open mind.”
“I would definitely describe myself as someone with an open mind.”

I expect that, like me, you have heard it countless times, used by countless people, in countless settings. Add to this the number of occasions when the words were used, and we didn’t even notice.

What mindsets, values and actions make you feel you are living your life with an open mind?
Advancement in digital technologies has disrupted everything, including leadership styles.
Employees want more ownership rather than to follow instruction; customers want to participate in the marketing and development process; and leaders are finding that open and agile organizations are able to maneuver more effectively than organizations where all insight and direction comes from the top. In short, the autocratic Commander, whether brilliant or misguided, just won’t cut it anymore.
