Creativity and Innovation Lessons from Musician George Clinton

He loved The Beatles Sargent Pepper and could not see why this could not be fitted into soul and funk music.

Unlike so many musicians that sit inside a genre, Clinton has been a fearless boundary crosser…. Read More»

What Actually Makes You Seem Likeable?

When I was an “on-air talent” on an NBC show, one of the first things they tested before I was hired was my likeability, what the TV industry and others dub the “Q” factor. Even though I tested high on that range I was keenly aware that it mattered more than my journalism experience, smarts, willingness to work hard or aptitude for this job.

In business, this could mean missing sales quota, missing project delivery dates, or simply missing company objectives. On a much larger scale this can look like a full-scale business failure, layoffs, or bankruptcy. So why is failure important?… Read More»

5 Lessons from the “Corner” Office

More and more offices exist at the corner, situated in the messy confluences of cultures and technologies and in the borderlands of traditional disciplines. As a millennial leader myself, I see the ways our generation’s coming of age in the workforce has primed us to lead from these spaces, to support a more inclusive and empathetic framework, and, ultimately, to embrace failure as an inevitable process towards achievement….
