Announcement: HOLISTIC

See things as related and even greater than its parts. Understand patterns and interdependencies.

The HOLISTIC view identifies points of intersection. It makes connections and cohesive groupings. It is the overarching umbrella—the super structure—that links and orchestrates the individual pieces into one.

When observing the world through the HOLISTIC lens, something diverse, yet unified appears. These formations are vast. And the resulting synergies help achieve desired goals and visions.

That said, to THINK HOLISTIC is the platform for capitalizing on the first half of THAP. It figuratively and literally is the means to move forward.

Making this a reality requires organizations to refocus their approach to the C-Suite. New titles for CXOs such as chief of reason, chief resilience officer, and chief rouser will open the door to innovation like never before.

The world is changing faster now than ever before, and if companies don’t react quickly and effectively to those changes, they’re destined to fall by the wayside. One way corporations can keep ahead of the curve is by installing a Chief Reason Officer (CRO), or so says Luis Gallardo, a global brand and marketing leader and author of the just-published book Brands and Rousers.

Luis Gallardo, Author of Brands & Rousers.The Holistic System to Foster High-Performing Businesses, Brands and Careers.

 

Previously posted @ Employer Branding Revolution

 

In recent decades, several themes have shaped business life as a whole and executives’ thinking in particular. These issues include the rise of technology and its impact both on what customers want and what business can achieve. Interestingly, history suggests that the impact of technology is often over-estimated in the short-term and under-estimated in the long-term.

Leading in Turbulent Times. Where is the full picture?

 

Luis Gallardo, Author of Brands & Rousers. The Holistic System to Foster High-Performing Businesses, Brands and Careers.

 

 

There are two things we can say for certain about the future: it will be different, and it will surprise. Given the competitiveness of global and local markets, the pace of change in business and the sudden emergence of unprecedented challenges and opportunities, there is an overriding need for leadership that is flexible, capable, and dynamic. If there is one lesson for organizations from the events of the late 20th Century and the first decade of the 21st it is this: it is not simply what we know that matters, but how we react to what we do not know.

Searching for Happiness. Higher average incomes do not necessarily improve average well-being

Edited by John Helliwell, Richard Layard and Jeffrey Sachs, World Happiness Report, The Earth Institute, Columbia University

 

Happiness isn’t easy to quantify, but a lot of people have tried: Bhutan has its Gross National Happiness survey, global research company Ipsos has its annual world happiness poll, and now Columbia University’s Earth Institute has put out the first World Happiness Report, which has the ambitious goal of surveying the state of happiness in the world today and looking at how the science of happiness plays into it.

Stepping up corporate citizenship for better days

Dr. Willem Smit is an affiliated IMD Research Fellow currently stationed in Singapore.

 

Volatility may be good for day traders on Wall Street but uncertainty is definitely not good for business on Main Street. It is difficult to ignore the fact that consumer sentiments in many markets remain low and that projects a bad omen.

 

The Occupy Movement is a reflection of a wider-shared feeling that something in many societies is not right and fair. What we have is an environment not favorable to conducting business.

 

Although comfortably protected by brand equity, big brands may soon be affected. Due to their reach and geographic exposure, big brands may be disproportionally harmed with the recession being global. With that in mind, some brands are taking a unique proactive strategy. They are using their strong images to, against all of the world’s disastrous negativism, send out constructive positive signals.

Shaping the Future You Want: Four Accelerating Global Challenges

Tracey Keys, Director of Strategy Dynamics Global Limited, publisher of www.globaltrends.com

 

2011 is one of those noteworthy years where events have unfolded which will have far-reaching consequences in the years and decades ahead; events of such a profound nature that any one of these events would have been more than enough for the world to cope with alone, from the devastating tsunami and nuclear disaster in Japan to the popular revolutions of the Arab Spring to the deepening financial crisis over sovereign debt. Together they have stretched our resources and ability to respond, individually and collectively.
