Great Leaders are First Great Human Beings… I admit it.

Great Leaders are First Great Human Beings…

I still make New Year’s Resolutions. Some of them I even follow through on. Those who can look deeply into themselves develop the eyes of wisdom to see not just what is directly in front of them, but also what lies on the road ahead. " (Keishu Shinso Ito) For instance, one year I pledged to quit my cushy VP job, go back to University and get a Master’s of Education in Sustainability so I could start a sustainability learning centre.

But there are other resolutions, ones that I faithfully make over and over again each year, but seemingly make little progress. We all understand the urgent need for tranformational change. “Great leaders are first and foremost great human beings in touch with their inner selves; their humanity.” Our children and future generations are caught in the cross fire of changing systems. So this year I am going to get serious. That is when I came across Dana Pearlman, Christophen Baan and Phil Long’s research on authentic leadership for sustainability.

The processes of social innovation. This week’s innovation conversation is more closely aligned to the original notion of RSA-style interdisciplinary conversations. We initially framed this discussion around social enterprise, then social design, finally the broader notion of social innovation. Last weeks technology innovation conversation surprisingly concluded that it was creating new relationships that matter in technology adoption and we find some similar themes emerging here; the importance of the social context, how to enable the social processes of innovation, whilst not forgetting practical business examples already being implemented. In terms of social context Nick Jankel comments that RSA fellows in the 18 th Century had “the temporal and emotional freedom to think, meet, talk and co-create The Enlightenment.” However it now seems that you need to be an institutional ‘maverick’ to become innovation.

An interview with Stephen Friend about using using open source to encourage collaboration and share health information.

An Open Source Approach to Medical Research (October 3, 2011)

This is the second in a series of interviews where we speak with leading innovators who are appropriating lessons from open source thinking—once purely the domain of the software engineer—for social change. Stephen Friend is an Ashoka Fellow in the United States working to transform the culture and practice of closed information systems present in biomedical research to align with and support health outcomes by establishing a commons.

He is president of Sage Bionetworks. Roshan Paul and Alexa Clay: What is the problem with the current health care research and development (R&D) community, and how are you addressing it? Stephen Friend: The medical information system is closed. At Sage Bionetworks, we are building a system where molecular knowledge about diseases can be pooled together from patients, scientists, and physicians. Q.

Le Jeu Symbolik - Act One

Fruit de 5 ans de réflexion et de travail, il s’inspire des tarots divinatoires pour transformer des symboles universels en sources d’idées. En décryptant le contenu de plus de 200 ensembles d’arcanes, les alphabets symboliques formant la base des tarots, nous avons établi une liste de 50 symboles universels, présents dans une large diversité de cultures mondiales et qui ont efficacement résisté à l’épreuve du temps. Chacun de ces symboles est représenté au sein du jeu Symbolik© par une illustration et trois concepts clés, qui sont des interprétations initiales destinées à faciliter la compréhension de la carte et son utilisation dans un environnement professionnel. Le jeu est composé de cinquante cartes et d’un plateau de jeu. Chaque carte comporte plusieurs niveaux de représentation en partant du centre : Le plateau de jeu peut accueillir quatre cartes Symbolik.
