The Uniter vs The Divider As Hillary Clinton learns to tell her story, and for the first time generates genuine enthusiasm among her supporters, she also runs the risk of being seen as "the divider". Meanwhile if Barack Obama is to continue to be seen as "the uniter", he must learn to tell a wider set of stories, including those of gun owners and small-town America.

The Nature of Plagiarism The Clinton campaign's accusation of plagiarism is without foundation, as is their argument about "words versus solutions". Instead, Clinton needs to make the substantive case what she has to offer as president that is different from and better than what Obama offers. Otherwise, she risks being seen herself as a plagiarist.

Obama Speaks The Language of Leadership There's nothing mysterious or devious or cult-like about what Obama is doing to inspire extraordinary enthusiasm in his audiences: he is using well-known principles of the language of leadership to reach people's hearts and change people's minds through the skilful use of narrative.

Clarity in Iraq: the war on terror When you've got yourself into a goddamned mess and you're trying to figure out how to get yourself out of it, it usually isn't very helpful to spend your time trying to find someone to blame. What makes more sense is to figure what intellectual errors led you there in the first place, so that you can find the right way forward. Nowhere is this truer in thinking about Iraq and the war on terror.

We need leaders, not managers As both Democrats and Republicans gear up for the current political campaign with the inevitable spate of labeling and name-calling, it needs to be recalled that people can smell the truth when they encounter it. What both Republicans and Democrats need is leaders who can speak it.

The Difference Between Leaders and Managers Think of Political leadership as you read the book review for RESONANT LEADERSHIP;: this book confuses leadership with managership, barely mentioning the principal tools by which leaders inspire action without hierarchical power-- narrative and storytelling. It almost totally neglects the central challenge of genuine leadership, namely, what one says and does to catalyze change.

Making The Workplace Worthwhile Steve Denning reviews David Whyte’s book, Crossing the Unknown Sea and finds that it is a timeless meditation on the meaning of the modern workplace. It recognizes the forces that are darkening the heart and offers a pathway from all that is deadening, de-energizing in modern work. It is a book that lifts the spirit, gleams in the sunlight, breathing life and spirit into our lives.

Conversation The Most Delightful Activity Of Our Lives Steve Denning reviews Conversation, a book by Stephen Miller, and finds that while it sheds light on “the most delightful activity in our lives”, it falls short of revealing what a world of genuine conversation would sound like, or how we might move from our current context of mean-spirited abstract arguments to a world of open-minded, jovial, spirited exchange of narratives.
