2012 Cultural Review Hola amigos, Last year’s cultural review proved so popular that I decided to put together another volume for 2012. Enjoy... MUSIC Scottish folk trio Lau were phenomenal at Kings Place in London and clear winners for my gig of the year. For home listening, it was the usual mix of classical, ambient and electronic. I listened to Tycho and Fennesz a lot this year, but my discovery of the year was German pianist/producer Nils Frahm. Caribou (as Daphni), Locsil, Four Tet and Eat Lights Become Lights all released good albums. SHOWS On the dance front, I loved the new productions by Ockham’s Razor (Arts Depot) and Akram Khan (Sadler's Wells). The British Museum’s exhibition of Spanish drawings was fantastic, alongside the spectacularly gruesome and splendidly-named ‘Death’ at the Wellcome Collection. Papier-mâché skulls are obviously the way forward. Make yours tomorrow. FILMS Of the major releases, I enjoyed Up in the Air, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Hugo, Skyfall and The Life of ...

The Biggest Mistake a Leader Can Make - Harvard Business Review. Femi Fortune-Idowu comment (opinion) : The biggest mistake leaders make may be trace to FEAR. All other mistakes leaders can make are embedded in FEAR. The fear of failure, the fear of insecurty, the fear of losing a position, fear of people and acquiring material things, fear of death, fear of results & consequences...This is also the sources of corruption, war and economic problems the world is facing today. A leader withouth INTEGRITY is soaked in FEAR. Fear not...a compassionate leader lead the battle focusing on affecting lives and solving problems not for people but with people. Fear limits the inbuilt capacity of a leader and flexibility. The moment Fear is activated, failure is set in. The foundation of every leaders mistakes/problems is FEAR of circumstances that may arise as a result of their leadership strategies and their actions.

“Australia ranks in the top 10 of 183 world economies in terms of starting a new business, getting credit, and ease of doing business.” WORLD BANK ...the key element of entrepreneurial success is “guts”, the courage to initiate, endure and evolve around an idea.

The New Diagnostic Scan for Alzheimer’s Disease Posted on November 26, 2012 by crobertson The New York Times brings us an interesting story about a new brain scan technology that allows the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease. Below the fold, I sketch a few interesting themes for health law, including the FDA’s authority over the practice of medicine, the use of blinding to improve clinical decision making, the value of a clinical diagnosis for an untreatable condition, and the problems of pre-existing conditions clauses in long-term care insurance. First, the FDA has required that doctors using the scan for diagnosis to pass objective tests of their proficiency in doing so. This is interesting in the light of the old-fashioned idea that the regulation of the practice of medicine is exclusively the business of the states, a principle reflected in 21 U.S.C. § 396, which says that “nothing in this [Act] shall be construed to limit or interfere with the authority of a health care practitioner to prescr ...

Be a part of the answer...so many great things happening out there. Second Mile wants to be part of the solution, as well. Another face of Pakistan (Dichter) Posted: 05 Dec 2012 02:00 AM PST I had the chance to spend last week in Karachi for the final round selection for the inaugural class of Acumen’s new Pakistan Fellows program. From more than 500 applicants from all corners of this country of 175 million people, we had winnowed the group down to just 40 finalists and had, in the course of a day, to select 20 people as our first Acumen Pakistan Fellows. The program begins in early 2013. The images the world (and Americans in particular) sees of Pakistan are difficult ones.

Here's a wakeup call for someone who focuses on issues, strategies, and solutions. This month's Harvard Business Review has an article by Jeff Kehoe about the importance of personality in leadership success, inspired by current movies/books about past presidents: "good leadership is ultimately defined by a strong personality matched to a particular circumstance which results in the effective use of power." More on influencing people: "the power not of command and control, but of sensibility and influence, and of personal relationships carefully and cannily gauged and leveraged." and "instead of ...judg(ing) leaders solely on their positions and strategies (which will always change), we should...ask ourselves, Who has the right personality for the job?"

Encourage Decisiveness at Your Next Meeting Meetings without outcomes are a waste of time. Yet, many meetings fail to produce results because the conversation circles around the issues rather than focuses on them. To make sure decisions happen and people take action, you need to have a productive dialogue. Here are four things every meeting should be: Open. The outcomes of your meeting should not be predetermined. Questions like, "What are we missing?" signal honest searching for alternative perspectives. Candid. Encourage people to air conflicts. When people express their real opinions, productivity increases. Informal. Keep it loose. Conversations should be unscripted with honest questions and spontaneity. Conclusive. Everyone should leave knowing exactly what they are expected to do. Today's Management Tip was adapted from Harvard Business Review on Making Smart Decisions.

Just attended 90th anniversary of Harvard Business Review. Angela Ahrendts, CEO of Burberry and a panelist at the event, said that when she passes young employees with three or four screens open on their computers she's delighted -- evidence of how tuned in they are to social media. I think she's nuts. The cost of this sort of distracted attention -- to productivity, to depth and to quality -- is immense. Sure there are times when it's fine to be flitting between screens -- and there's no doubt every Millenial alive does it -- but for my money, it's evidence of everything that's wrong with the way we're paying attention. -Tony Schwartz

Great opportunity to spread the word about 2020 Women on Boards! Great quote from June 2011 Harvard Business Review, "“There’s little correlation between a group’s collective intelligence and the IQs of its individual members. But if a group includes more women, its collective intelligence rises.”
Harvard Business Review was launched in 1922 by a Harvard Business School dean who wanted to equip managers-in-training with better tools of the trade. In Inventing HBR, Julia Kirby, an editor at large for HBR, traces the magazine’s history from the Roaring Twenties to the present day.

We're about to get our Sunday show rolling, and we'll begin (and end) in foreign territory. Since foreign policy will dominate the final presidential debate tomorrow night -- special coverage tomorrow on msnbc starts Monday at 5pm ET -- we'll start with a look at the policies of the two candidates, as well as breaking news about Iran. In light of a new NBC News poll showing President Obama's advantage with women voters as small as it's ever been, we'll remind folks what Mitt Romney's real plans are for women's rights and reproductive freedoms. We'll also have big updates about Malala Yousafzai and the voter fraud billboards in Cleveland, and a Footnote directly related to the video you see below. We'll also welcome the two people behind the new book, "Gather at the Table": Tom DeWolf and Sharon Morgan. He is the descendant of (respectively) the largest slave-trading family in U.S. history; she of at least twelve slaves. Melissa will talk to them about how they came to meet in 2009, and their amazing story ...

In an interview with Harvard Business Review, when asked: "You've been described as bossy and demanding. How do you respond to that?", Barbra Streisand replied: "Those words would never be applied to a man... A man is commanding; a woman is demanding. A man is forceful; a woman is pushy. He's assertive; she manipulates. He shows leadership; she's controlling. He's committed; she is obsessed. He's persevering; she's relentless. A man is a perfectionist; a woman is a pain in .''
