'IF 'BLEEDING HEART LIBERALS' WERE ONCE A POLITICAL CARICATURE, ACCUSED OF TOO MUCH COMPASSION AND WANTING TO GIVE TOO MUCH AWAY, TODAY THE CARICATURE MIGHT BE 'BLEEDING ULCER CONSERVATIVES', WHO SUFFER FROM TOO MUCH BILE BECAUSE OF THINGS THEY HATE"
Join a lively and thought provoking discussion with the foremost expert in creating change and building effective group collaboration, Dr, Rosabeth Moss Kanter; New York Times best selling author, distinguished Harvard Professor, previous editor of the Harvard Business Review, consultant to world-wide organizations, named to lists of the "50 most powerful women in the world" (Times of London), and the "50 most influential business thinkers in the world" (Accenture and Thinkers 50 research). Dr. Kanter now turns her extensive knowledge and experience to creating a much needed revitalization of America, based on real founding principles ... know-how...and with special role for grassroots. Dr. Kanter not only discusses what must be done but HOW to proceed.
She is truly a Change Master and helps people understand what change is really about ... what works & why...as well as how to deal with resistance.
"Change itself is a Process
It is the Ability to
Conceive
Construct
&
Convert
Into Behavior
A New View of ..Reality"
Dr.Kanter will explain what this means ... how it can be done by grassroots' organizations... what is most critical...how to engage others in your efforts. Dr. Kanter's challenge outlined in her new book "America the Principled" will provide you with a unique oversight as well as tools to help truly make the USA a Nation united in a shared higher Vision and Can Do attitude once again. Dr. Kanter will discuss what citizens need to know to help bring needed change in our communities as well as Country.
"Opportunity is a great motivator. People put in effort because it leads somewhere...helps them get closer to their dreams. Expectation of open doors..during darkest hours keep people going. But closed doors and limited opportunities depress aspirations. Without opportunity people cannot prosper. When people close their minds , fearing the future, thy fail to learn how to Master the New Challenges."
"Closed doors also allow mischief to take place behind them, that can distort results and when countries as well as companies alike simultaneously close their doors, they erect barriers to problem solving and allow a few to succeed at the expense of the many."
"Once widely admired as the land of opportunity, America could instead be closing its' doors...unless WE create a positive agenda to renew the American Spirit"
"Americans were once known as a people who responded to circumstances, however seemingly adverse" by saying "Yes, WE Can!' The grim years of the twenty first century, however have become the winter of America's discontent. when anxieties are so chilling, stresses so burdensome, and major institutions so discredited that it is tempting to retreat behind closed doors. Terrorism, economic recession, corporate scandals, and war have dampened the national mood".
  • "For all the talk about the centrality of innovation to the economy, science has been under political attack (Whether the issue is biology or global warming) and forced to compete with religious ideology
  • For many middle class families the burdens of daily life seem more onerous and even well educated professionals struggle with issues of work and family, loss of job security (they are not the unemployed but the 'uneasily employed')
  • Corporate financial scandals ...wrongdoing...top executive pay has swelled many hundreds of times
  • Mistrust of government is at all time high and unfortunately contempt for government or subversion of its powers is prevalent at the highest levels
  • Prevailing political ideology that opened the twenty first century is xenophobic and isolationist, viewing other countries as threats, failing to maximize the value of our national diversity as a nation of immigrants in forging connections to competitive nations and missing opportunities to cultivate new kinds of leaders who invest in their people
  • As Americans separate into antagonistic, ideological camps, we struggle to find common grounds and the sense of community that once made 'one nation' the strongest country (and opportunity) on earth"
WE NEED A NEW VISION FOR AMERICA ...A RETURN TO OPEN-SOCIETY PRINCIPLES
"Invest in People and new ideas...Reward talent and hard work...Value dialogue and learn from dissent...Operate from Highest Standards with Transparent Information...Looks for a Common ground...See problems as opportunities for creative change....Encourages those who are more fortunate to help others get the same chance...service is {one of } the highest ideals.With such standards in mind, America the Beautiful can return to its role as America the Principled..... Enduring American Principles can help a divided country, and it is hoped, heal a troubled world. "
This will require work, especially at the grass roots level ..involvement... working with and demanding our representatives act on making the American Vision a reality again...open the doors! It also requires "a new commitment to government as an instrument of public interest, replacing contempt with competence" Additionally We the People must take more responsibility especially in rebuilding community and include service to unite people behind common purposes... to regain our rights, power and action to create needed change.
After Dr. Kanter, John Gideon, Executive Director of Voters Unite will provide a report on key breaking voting news, with commentary followed by a discussion of Dr. Kanter's suggestions and change principles by host, Mary Ann Gould and commentator, Jim Strait.
Biography: Dr. Rosabeth M. Kanter

Ernest L. Arbuckle Professor of Business Administration

Rosabeth Moss Kanter holds the Ernest L. Arbuckle Professorship at Harvard Business School, where she specializes in strategy, innovation, and leadership for change. Her strategic and practical insights have guided leaders of large and small organizations worldwide for over 25 years, through teaching, writing, and direct consultation to major corporations and governments. The former Editor of Harvard Business Review (1989-1992), Professor Kanter has been named to lists of the "50 most powerful women in the world" (Times of London), and the "50 most influential business thinkers in the world" (Accenture and Thinkers 50 research). In 2001, she received the Academy of Management's Distinguished Career Award for her scholarly contributions to management knowledge, and in 2002 was named "Intelligent Community Visionary of the Year" by the World Teleport Association.

Professor Kanter is the author or co-author of 17 books, which have been translated into 17 languages. Her latest book, America the Principled: 6 Opportunities for Becoming a Can-Do Nation Once Again (published on October 23, 2007), offers a positive agenda for the nation, focused on innovation and education, a new workplace social contract, values-based corporate conduct, competent government, positive international relations through citizen diplomacy and business networks, and national and community service.

Her previous book, Confidence: How Winning Streaks & Losing Streaks Begin & End (a New York Times business and #1 Business Week bestseller), describes the culture and dynamics of high-performance organizations as compared with those in decline, and shows how to lead turnarounds, whether in businesses, hospitals, schools, sports teams, community organizations, or countries. Her classic prizewinning book, Men & Women of the Corporation (C. Wright Mills award winner for the year's best book on social issues) offered insight to countless individuals and organizations about corporate careers and the individual and organizational factors that promote success; a spin-off video, A Tale of ‘O': On Being Different, is among the world's most widely-used diversity tools; and a related book, Work & Family in the United States, set a policy agenda (in 2001, a coalition of university centers created the Rosabeth Moss Kanter Award in her honor for the best research on work/family issues). Another award-winning book, When Giants Learn to Dance, showed how to master the new terms of competition at the dawn of the global information age. World Class: Thriving Locally in the Global Economy identified the rise of new business networks and analyzed the benefits and tensions of globalization.

She has received 22 honorary doctoral degrees, as well as numerous leadership awards and prizes for her books and articles; for example, her book The Change Masters was named one of the most influential business books of the 20th century (Financial Times). Through Goodmeasure Inc., the consulting group she co-founded, she has partnered with IBM to bring her leadership tools, originally developed for businesses, to public education as part of IBM's award-winning Reinventing Education initiative and she is a Senior Advisor for IBM's Global Citizenship portfolio.. She advises CEOs of large and small companies, has served on numerous business and non-profit boards and national or regional commissions, and speaks widely, often sharing the platform with Presidents, Prime Ministers, and CEOs at national and international events, such as the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Before joining the Harvard Business School faculty, she held tenured professorships at Yale University and Brandeis University and was a Fellow at Harvard Law School, simultaneously holding a Guggenheim Fellowship.

She chairs a Harvard University group creating an innovative initiative on advanced leadership, to help successful leaders at the top of their professions apply their skills not only to managing their own enterprises but also to addressing challenging national and global problems.
