Revenge of the Right Brain
Logical and precise, left-brain thinking gave us the Information Age. Now comes the Conceptual Age - ruled by artistry, empathy, and emotion.

When I was a kid - growing up in a middle-class family, in the middle of America, in the middle of the 1970s - parents dished out a familiar plate of advice to their children: Get good grades, go to college, and pursue a profession that offers a decent standard of living and perhaps a dollop of prestige. If you were good at math and science, become a doctor. If you were better at Eng ... read more

KIND- HEARTED PEOPLE
He almost didn’t see the old lady, stranded on the side of the road. But even in the dim light of day, he could see she needed help.
So he pulled up in front of her Mercedes and got out. His Pontiac was still sputtering when he approached her.
Even with the smile on his face, she was worried. No one had stopped to help for the last hour or so. Was he going to hurt her?
He didn’t look safe; he looked poor and hungry. He could see that she was frightened, standing out there in the cold. He knew
how she felt. It was that chill which only fear can put in y ... read more

THE MYTH OF DAEDALUS & ICARUS
Daedalus was a highly respected and talented Athenian artisan descendent from the royal family of Cecrops, the mythical first king of Athens. He was known for his skill as an architect, sculpture, and inventor, and he produced many famous works. Despite his self-confidence, Daedalus once committed a crime of envy against Talus, his nephew and apprentice. Talus, who seemed destined to become as great an artisan as his uncle Daedalus, was inspired one day to invent the saw after having seen the way a snake used its jaws. Daedalus, momentarily ... read more

The Overthrow of the Coperian Theory
” The original ark the earth does not move” Such a radical assertion illustrates well the radical nature of Husserl’s thought. He suggests in these notes that there is a profound instability in the worldview resulting from the continual clash between our scientific convictions and our spontaneous experience. After the investigations of Copernius, Keppler, Galileo, the sun came to be conceived as the center of the phenomineous world. Yet this conception simply did not agree with our spontaneous sensory perception, which remained the experience ... read more

What is Leadership? How do leaders manifest
Supporting And Inspiring
When we call someone a leader, what we sometimes mean is that they are the best in their particular field; they are inspiring because of how much they accomplish. To be highly accomplished is impressive, but that isn’t what leadership is about. True leaders are not just high achievers; they also support the people around them to achieve, and, in certain cases, to become leaders themselves. In other words, true leaders do not create a static group of followers. Rather, they create an environment in which everyone can develop their potenti ... read more
