Leaders-Teachers Do Not Transform People!
Instead leaders-mentors-teachers (1) provide a
context which is marked by (2) access to a
luxuriant portfolio of meaningful opportunities
(projects) which (3) allow people to fully (and
safely, mostlycaveat they dont engage unless
theyre mad about something) express their
innate curiosity and (4) engage in a vigorous
discovery voyage (alone and in small teams,
assisted by an extensive self-constructed
network) by which those people (5) go to-create
places they (and their mentors-teachers-leaders)
had never dreamed existedand then the
leaders-mentors-teachers (6) applaud like hell,
stage photo-ops, and ring the church bells 100
times to commemorate the bravery of their
followers explorations!

gained in other markets to enforce their
standard.Seth Godin, Zooming

Good management was the most powerful reason
leading firms failed to stay atop their
industries. Precisely because these firms
listened to their customers, invested
aggressively in technologies that would provide
their customers more and better products of the
sort they wanted, and because they carefully
studied market trends and systematically
allocated investment capital to innovations that
promised the best returns, they lost their
positions of leadership.Clayton Christensen,
The Innovators Dilemma

are inheriting the earth. Mixing is the new norm.
Mixing trumps isolation. It spawns creativity,
nourishes the human spirit, spurs economic
growth and empowers nations.G. Pascal

believe impossible things. I daresay you
havent had much practice, said the Queen. When

WebWorld Everything Web as a way to run your
business innardsWeb as connector for your
entire supply-demand chain Web as spiders web
which re-conceives the industryWeb/B2B as
ultimate wake-up call to commodity
producersWeb as the scourge of slack,
inefficiency, sloth, bureaucracy, poor customer
dataWeb as an Encompassing Way of LifeWeb

any size, to Worlds Best at Everything as next
door neighbor

B2B or Internet-supply chain strategy in a
low-trust, bottlenecked-communication, six-layer
organization.
106
Ebusiness is about rebuilding the organization
from the ground up. Most companies today are not
built to exploit the Internet. Their business

the number of people they employ all of that is
wrong for running an ebusiness.Ray Lane,

  • It was much later that I realized Dads secret.
    He gained respect by giving it. He talked and
    listened to the fourth-grade kids in Spring
    Valley who shined shoes the same way he talked
    and listened to a bishop or a college president.
    He was seriously interested in who you were and
    what you had to say.
  • Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot, Respect

Individuals (would-be leaders) cannot engage in a
liberating mutual discovery process unless they
are comfortable with their own skin. (Leaders
who are not comfortable with themselves become
petty control freaks.)
137
