(Editor's note: This post is part of a six-week blog series on how leadership might look in the future. The conversations generated by these posts will help shape the agenda of a symposium on the topic in June 2010, hosted by HBS's Nitin Nohria, Rakesh Khurana, and Scott Snook. This week's focus: leadership development.) 
One of the more puzzling aspects of our current discourse on leadership is how little it has been affected by a century's deepening realization of the impact of our nonconscious processes on our behavior and decision-making. A student of the leadership literature would never suspect that at ...
Shirley Sherrod Resigns After Racist Remarks | Right Wing News
after publicly admitting she didn't help a white man trying to save his farm to the "full force" of her power and instead referred him to "own of his own." Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said he had accepted Shirley Sherrod's resignation, saying there was "zero tolerance for discrimination at USDA." Of course, Sherrod and other liberals are saying it was all taken out of context . If so, why did she resign? And why so darned quick? Anyhow, the NAACP actually did jump in and denounce her blatant racism , whether because they truly believe it, or for political appearances, we do not know market research, surveys and trends

Town Hall Meetings Generate Interest, Some Sympathy
PRINCETON, NJ -- More than two-thirds of Americans (69%) are closely following news accounts of town hall meetings on healthcare reform, and while 34% say the protests make them more sympathetic to the protestors' viewpoints and 21% say the protests make them less sympathetic, almost half either say the protests haven't affected their views either way or have no opinion. Video clips of angry protestors speaking up at various town hall meetings held by members of Congress and senators on proposed healthcare reform legislation across the country have dominated news coverage of healthcare reform in recent days.

Trends « Sponsorship and Sports Marketing News and Jobs
Over the years there have been countless headlines of risky rights for brands to sponsor.  Athletes have always been seen as risky.  For example, the poster child of the 2004 Olympic Games, Katarina Thanou, failed a drugs test before the games that year causing huge embarrassment for Adidas, who had committed heaps of money to a huge marketing campaign.  Also, Tiger Woods, branded from head to toe by AT&T, Nike, Accenture and Gatorade, caused uproar with his exploits and also tainted the images of many of his sponsors. But can the same be said for brands?  Do rights holders see some brands as risky? And, should a rights holder ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Is Phil Angelides Enabling the Pillaging of Veterans' Pensions?
Phil Angelides serves as chairman of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission appointed by the leadership of the House and Senate. I informed him June 8th of evidence confirming the presence of organized crime in looting the nation’s pension plans. As Senate Finance Committee counsel, 1980-87, the pension area was a central focus of my work. I was also familiar with his role, while State Treasurer of California (elected in 1998 and again in 2002), as an  ex officio member of the board of the nation’s first and third largest public pension plans, both in California. The vice-chairman is Bill Thomas, a former Congressman and ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Grass looks greener to one third of Australian workers
This finding comes as further confirmation of employee dissatisfaction after a Drake International report from February 2010 found that as much as fifty per cent of Australian workers are thinking about changing their jobs. During the economic downturn employees gritted their teeth and bore the brunt of more arduous conditions, thankful to have jobs at all. But the backlash has begun and the natives are getting restless. With more jobs opening up, workers are starting to think of getting to a better place in their careers � especially if the companies they work for haven�t done enough to take care of them during the tough times. market trends, news research and surveys resources

Co-worker Backlash and Support: Responses to Work-Family Policies ...
In this entry, we describe the impact of co-workers on the work-family (W-F) interface, including the positive and negative impacts that co-workers have on their fellow workers. Specifically, the purpose of this entry is to describe what is known about co-worker support for W-F issues and backlash against the use of W-F policies and practices. A great deal of research has been dedicated to exploring the effects of W-F conflict on organizations and individuals (see Korabik, Lero, & Whitehead, 2008).  However, the primary focus in this literature has been on the support provided by organizations and supervisors to help ...
where can i watch the nba playoffs in london?
LONDON -- If you were an NBA fan growing up in Italy a quarter of a century ago, you had to wait until the game tapes were flown in from New York before you could watch Larry Bird and Magic Johnson battling it out in postseason play. Today, millions of basketball fans across Europe have a wide range of ways in which they can watch their heroes and favorite teams competing live at the business end of the season -- even if there is always the curse of time difference to overcome. But, however difficult it is for the Euro fan to keep track of the NBA playoffs in 2007, technology has certainly come a long way since the early 1980s ...
What are the 5 key steps an organisation should take to create a ...
Hamsaz, I recently read the quote “Culture eats strategy” and thought that there is a lot of truth behind the stateme. Culture can either kill a strategy or enable it to be realized. To create a sustainable high performing company, you need to have a culture that supports the performance required by the strategy. I find that there are generically four culture types (defined by Cameron, K. S., & Quinn) • Collaborative (Clan): an organization that concentrates on internal maintenance with flexibility, concern for people, and sensitivity for customers. Disney is a good example of a company who embrace ...
