Is Harvard University Professor, Michael Sandel, just a Dreamer?

Thursday October 14th, 2021 0 comments

Many of you reported their interest in Michael Sandel’s TED talk, mentioned in my last article. And, if a part were enjoying the ideas put forward by Professor Sandel, they also regretted, in advance, that these could be too idealistic. For those of you who never heard about him, Michael Sandel is an American Political Philosopher, teaching at Harvard University…

A New Way of Thinking for the Disruption Economy

Tuesday October 5th, 2021 0 comments

We have all seen where a wonderful idea such as Facebook (from creating a platform where people living far apart from each other could reconnect with each other, to becoming a major tool of misinformation at the service of dictatorships or haters) went through time or how polarization and exclusion ideas have allowed divisive leaders to gain elections by spreading…

Tuesday September 21st, 2021 0 comments

I often quote the work of Babson Professor, Jay Rao, on this blog. I like his down to Earth, thought provoking and unorthodox approach to things. Like many of you know, Nick McRoberts is one of my closest Business Partner but he is also a conductor and composer in classical music. We both invited Prof. Rao for a fascinating conversation…

It takes more than words to become a “Disruptive Leader”

Friday July 23rd, 2021 0 comments

I am interested in football and ice hockey as I believe that they can learn a lot from Business Teams Dynamics whilst inspiring them, in return, from a metaphorical perspective. And results come faster in sports: the next quarter’s results are the next game for sports’ coaches. So the time lag to measure the impact of strategic, cultural, tactical or…

Brain-fog and the Pandemic Brain

Friday July 2nd, 2021 0 comments

I usually write about Disruption Economy, Leadership and Transformation. Once, back in 2019, I made an exception, quoting a very interesting TED talk by one of the specialists of sleep, Matt Walker (see article). I did that because I consider my mission to be to support leaders, particularly during the disruptive times we are called to live. And today’s post…

Romans and Revolutions

Thursday June 24th, 2021 0 comments

Have you noticed how a radical diet (here speaks a specialist😉) creates a (sometimes) healthy shock in our constitution (two years ago, I lost 15kg by stopping to eat during 15 days, my blood pressure was back to where it should be, my glycaemia level was under control) but if the mindset does not change, sooner or later the pendulum…

Saturday June 12th, 2021 2 comments

Think back to leadership in the prehistorical tribes, then in the various first great civilizations, Sumerians, Egyptians, Sabaeans, Harappans, Chinese, Indians, Olmecs, Caralians, followed by the Romans, the Middle Age, the Renaissance, the industrial revolution or now, Toffler’s announced third wave… Did the paradigms on which leaders based their “license to operate” widely differ? In all those Worlds anchored into…

We need 30 seconds of your time to support us…

Saturday June 5th, 2021 3 comments

Dear Readers, dear Friends, As you may know by now, Nick McRoberts and I have decided to write a second book, triggered by what we see as the biggest decision Mankind has to take about its fate: How will we decide to invest the trillions of you-name-the currency, that governments have pledged, to reset the Economy? Will we haste backwards…

Science sans conscience n’est que ruine de l’âme

Friday May 28th, 2021 0 comments

“Science without consciousness, will lead to the ruining of our souls” used to warn the 16th century French advanced thinker, Rabelais. Alvin Toffler, the famous Futurist, who passed away in 2016, was warning in his 1970 book, the Future Shock, that “too much change in too short a period of time” would cause unsuspected wounds and grief amongst ordinary people.…
