逆. Change the Rules.

The tittle "逆 (ni). Change the Rules." plays a pun on 你 (ni) meaning 'you' change the rules. Albeit a defiant connotative element (逆 is converse), this film ... Another look on imitation. Good for reflection. - What's your opinion?

Die Zahl der Frauen in den Vorstandsetagen der weltweit größten Unternehmen ist einer US-Studie zufolge in den vergangenen Jahren leicht gestiegen.

Breaking Free: How Nitish Kumar Turned Bihar Into a Model of Indian Reform

Breaking Free: How Nitish Kumar Turned Bihar Into a Model of Indian Reform | Global Revolutions | Scoop.it

An example for effective leadership for change and the power of one single person:

 

For decades Bihar was an Indian byword for poverty, violence and corruption. But that was before Nitish Kumar became chief minister in late 2005. Achieving double-digit economic growth was never his goal. When he first ran for chief-minister job in 2005, he was a single-issue candidate. "I didn't say much", he tells TIME. "I said rule of law will be established."... Hope once seemed unimaginable in Bihar. Now, it has reached even the most remote corner of the state.

Cultural Creatives - The (R)evolution Movie

Cultural Creatives - The (R)evolution Movie | Global Revolutions | Scoop.it

Cultural Cratives will change the world: Featuring many key figures from Europe and the U.S., this is the first documentary film to look with scientific thoroughness at the world of Cultural Creatives. It shows that a great mass of people think differently from the way propagated by the media and promoted by the establishment. By the end of the film it becomes evident that this huge mass, were it to become aware of its power, could change the world. Because Cultural Creatives are unstoppable and their number is continuously rising, the values they champion could soon become core values for human civilization generally... Frigyes Fogel will be speaking at the TedX Pannonia event on 11/11/11. check out the evnt-site: http://www.tedxpannonia.com/tedxpannonia-2011/

The Thiel Foundation - fostering revolutions in science and technology | Global Revolutions | Scoop.it

The Thiel Foundation was founded by Peter Thiel, an investor whithout whom most probably n Facebook Story would be to tell today.

 

“Some of the world’s most important technologies were created by independent minds working long nights in garage labs,” said Thiel. “But when their ideas are too new, unproven, or unpopular, these visionaries can find it difficult to obtain support. Through Breakout Labs, we’re going to create opportunities for revolutionary science by cultivating an entrepreneurial research model that prizes extreme creativity and bold thinking.”

Può un leader carismatico salvare il mondo? Il potere e il pericolo del carisma | Business Church Blog

Può un leader carismatico salvare il mondo? Il potere e il pericolo del carisma | Business Church Blog | Global Revolutions | Scoop.it

In questo momento vediamo dei governi "esperti" prendere le redini del potere nei vari stati d'Europa. Sembra come l'aurora di un nuovo "Secolo dell'Illuminismo". Frustrati dalla pessima gestione e dalla corruzione dei leader politici sembra esistere nessun'altra via fuori dalla miseria che con delle persone focalizzate esclusivamente sulla loro perizia.

 

Questo è senz'altro la soluzione più razionale nel vero e proprio senso della parola. Il problema è solo che l'azione priva di emozioni non è l'espressione vera della "conditio humana" e i messaggi portati dalla frustrazione non sono quelli che ispirano la gente di combattere per una causa comune.

Verschiedene Weisen zu sterben

Verschiedene Weisen zu sterben | Global Revolutions | Scoop.it

Auf meiner Suche nach den großen und kleinen Revolutionen in dieser Welt, kam mir heute eine Geschichte ganz unerwarteter Natur unter:

 

"Verschiedene Weisen zu sterben" von Ruth Zenkert, "Mutter" hunderter Straßenkinder in Rumänien: "... Kann der Mensch mitbestimmen, wie er stirbt? Die Weise, wie ich sterben will, sollte mein Leben prägen. Meine Arbeit, meine Beziehungen, meine Großzügigkeit, mein Lebensanliegen bestimmen, wie ich sterbe."

 

Vielleicht hilft die Frage nach dem Tod tatsächlich manchmal, um zu entscheiden, ob man die eigene, kleine Revolution anzetteln will...

LEADERSHIT - it's a book and a project | Global Revolutions | Scoop.it

A very disrespectful title for an incredibly respectful project: to re-think leadership or to abandon it at all, spreading into the world from a quite probable (as well as improbable) starting point: Italy. And how could itbe otherwise than very much focussed on the feminine side of business in particular and of the future in general.

Occupy Wall Street | September 17th | #OCCUPYWALLSTREET | Adbusters Culturejammer Headquarters | Global Revolutions | Scoop.it

A grassroot revolution spreading throughout the world. How is a leader-less revolution actually possible? Does that mean that leadership is obsolete or does it mean that the people who are nurturing this revolution have nothing better to do? (= means: in business, where everybody has always something to do, this kind of self-organisation would not be possible)?
