An educational, learning perspective on Leadership Step by Step from the Better Leadership Better Schools podcast

on February 8, 2017 in Education, Leadership

Daniel Bauer of the Better Leaders Better Schools podcast interviewed me and posted it today. As Daniel helps develop school leaders, mainly K-12, he approached Leadership Step by Step and my work from a more learning and educational perspective than most of the business and personal development approaches of other interviews. It’s a natural perspective since I’m teaching, so I’m glad he did. The interview touched on a lot of[…] Keep reading →

My courses will lead students to leave traditional, lecture-based universities — to greater success and reward

on March 30, 2016 in Choosing/Decision-Making, Education, Entrepreneurship, Leadership

I loved university. Studying physics, universities are about the only places to learn it. I value university for many things. They do a lot of valuable things better than any other institution or alternatives—the hard sciences, for example. It’s not right for everyone and it does some things terribly. Places other than universities do some non-academic activities so much better than school. Experiential learning—how I teach leadership, entrepreneurship, sales, and[…] Keep reading →

Leadership-based thoughts on economic and energy growth and limits

on April 26, 2012 in Awareness, Blog, Leadership, Nature

My closing paragraphs on yesterday’s post, anticipating people’s reaction, got me thinking about Marshall Goldsmith, one of today’s top business thinkers (and a friend). I wrote the following: By now, many of you are probably thinking “we’ve solved all the problems so far, we’ll solve the ones to come” “since before Malthus scientists project doomsday and they never happen, we can ignore this” or “this won’t affect me” If so,[…] Keep reading →

The Ethicist: Can a Doctor Refuse to Treat a Patient Who Takes Cannabis?

on February 10, 2019 in Blog, Ethicist

My series answering the New York Times’ Ethicist column with an active, leadership approach instead of an analytical, philosophical perspective continues with “Can a Doctor Refuse to Treat a Patient Who Takes Cannabis?”. A friend was recently diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a cancer of a type of white blood cell called plasma cells. There is often significant pain associated with this condition, and my friend has been treated with high[…] Keep reading →

115: Sandy Reisky, part 2: A Superbowl Ad to reduce consumption (transcript)

on January 8, 2019 in Podcast

Sandy’s first conversation got a lot of extra lessons because, drum roll please, Leonardo Di Caprio’s foundation tweeted about it. So we’re getting a lot more attention, especially Sandy. Please watch the video if you haven’t watch it from the first one of The New Face of Clean Energy that Sandy and his non-profit made. And we talk about the origin of the video. It’s a new way of looking[…] Keep reading →

114: Dave Asprey: Leading with love (transcript)

on January 7, 2019 in Podcast

If you’re like me, you’ve heard of Bulletproof Coffee. I don’t drink coffee so I didn’t really think much of it. Not drinking coffee since I’ve heard about it so much. Actually, I hear a lot about people losing weight with it. People say they have lots of energy with it. Still I figured it must be some guy who’s really good at internet marketing behind it. I’d heard Dave[…] Keep reading →

110: Geoffrey West, part 3: Using science to create a vision for the future (transcript)

on December 26, 2018 in Podcast

I think of Jeffrey’s research as particularly valuable since it comes from different directions and draws from many different sources than most environmental approaches do. He takes a different approach to technology and innovation. He’s not so big on technology. I mean he’s big on it but he recognizes its limitations and its potential for harm. Rarely do I hear of scientists saying that their research points to leadership. In[…] Keep reading →
