Every fortnight I curate some of the observations and insights that were shared on social media. I call these Friday’s Finds.
“We should discriminate in the sharpest way between fortunes well won and fortunes ill won; between those gained as an incident to performing great services to the community as a whole and those gained in evil fashion by keeping just within the limits of mere law honesty. Of course, no amount of charity in spending such fortunes in any way compensates for misconduct in making them.” – Theodore Roosevelt, 1906
“I’m also not suggesting that marketing, advertising and branding are the core of the problem. I’ve long had a passion for those disciplines and have pushed myself and others to help in their reform. The fact remains that these disciplines effectively help mask the realities of what these companies do and how they operate, and that is completely unacceptable, and has been for a very long time.”
“I am convinced that any corporate culture must place value on informal learning and reward informal learning achievements. Knowledge sharing is vital to the success of any company. It’s alarming that Fortune 500 companies squander nearly $32 billion per year by not sharing knowledge adequately. In a global business environment filled with rapid technology change, hyper-competition and turbulence, such a number is unacceptable.” – Karl Mehta
