In his opening keynote to young global leaders, at the World Economic Forum on Latin America in Mexico, Professor Klaus Schwab (founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum) referred to his blog “The end of capitalism…what’s next ?” and restated his conviction: “it is fair to say that capital is losing its status as the most important factor of production in our economic system. As I outlined in my opening address in Davos, capital is being superseded by creativity and the ability to innovate — and therefore by human talents — as the most important factors of production. If talent is becoming the decisive competitive factor, we can be confident in stating that capitalism is being replaced by “talentism.” Just as capital replaced manual trades during the process of industrialization, capital is now giving way to human talent.” More at the following link: http://www2.alcatel-lucent.com/blogs/corporate/2012/04/the-new-era-of-talentism/

What is Transformational Coaching?

Transformational Coaching works from the inside out. Transformational coaching works at an individual level and since companies consist of individuals it works for any business/organization. The work of transformation includes the following impacts:

  • Having individuals/businesses always be at the source of and, therefore, having complete power with their current circumstances and their future
  • Ability to identify and STOP being run by past patterns that have dictated how life/business has gone and therefore, remove barriers that have shown up
  • Creation of new patterns that will produce consistent desired results
  • Removal of drama, conflict and upsets
  • Relationships that are juicy and fulfilling beyond belief 24/7 in every area of your life/business
  • Recognition that anything can be created and accomplished beginning NOW
  • Mastery over yourself as THE ONE who gets to say how it goes for your entire life/business
  • Having life/business be a very clear series of quantum leaps vs. gradual improvements
  • Dispelling boring, unfulfilling problems and having a life/business that is filled with intentions worth living/working for

Transforming education

Often the rhetoric concerning higher education reform is so heated that it becomes unhealthy. After all, there’s a lot of money riding on the outcome.

But for those who want a thoughtful, reasoned—even gentle—approach to the extraordinary opportunities (and massive problems) facing higher education, there’s Clayton Christensen and Henry Eyring’s new book, The Innovative University.

I’ve had the honor of knowing Clay—one of the finest business minds since Peter Drucker—through serving on various Harvard Business School committees and boards for the last sixteen years. Clay’s simply one the finest, most inspiring people I’ve ever known, as both a scholar and a human being. I’ve only known of Henry Eyring through his work with former Harvard Dean and now BYU-Idaho President Kim Clark. But what I do know is that both Henry and Kim are extraordinary leaders, and have worked wonders at BYU-I.

The Innovative University is beautifully written, and based on Clay’s work ondisruptive innovation. Any serious follower of the modern university who reads this book will realize that the status quo is in deep trouble.

Sadly, I predict that few traditional universities will be bold enough to seize the opportunities Clay and Henry describe. The incumbents in an industry usually cling to their failing paradigm all the way to collapse, a tragedy described years ago by my former professor (and the world’s best Socratic teacher) Ben Shapiro in Why Bad things Happen to Good Companies.

My guess is that academia will face an even darker future than other disrupted industries, simply because of its governance problems. It’s as if US Steel, when trying to respond to the disruptive threat of mini-mills, not only had to face its unions, but had to contend with management at all levels elected by the unions—just as the tenured faculty effectively elect its Department Heads, Deans, and Presidents.
