The Pope really hit the nail on the head in his address to the leaders of the Roman Curia when he outlined the diseases that ail Leadership in general. Gary Hamel in his article in HBR The 15 Diseases of Leadership, According to Pope Francis translated Pope’s message of last year to corporate speak for the benefit of leaders outside of the Roman Curia.
Some of those stood out as common diseases visible all over:
A) Sense of being indispensable
B) “Leadership Alzheimer’s disease”
C) The disease of hoarding, which I would like to broaden the scope of to include the disease of Silos and lack of information sharing
D) The disease of poor coordination- building on Mr. Hamel’s thoughts I believe this disease has its roots in the ‘better than the pack’ mindset
Definitely a great read by two stalwarts in their own fields! Enjoy!
Have been a fan of Carol Dweck’s work from the time of my graduate studies, and an equal fan of the book Talent is Overrated. Enjoyed many a runs marvelling at the beauty of Hopkinton, and the information in this book.

Impressions from Rupalli Thacker-
To be expected, right? I predict that many other LMS providers will start adding capabilities that enable delivery of MOOCs. This will in turn increase uptake by corporations. It is just a matter of time before LMS providers also enable efficient and effective tracking mechanisms for all the learning objects that complete a MOOC experience ( experience API should help). #MOOC #blended #distance learning
Coursera is bringing MOOCs to China.
