  • To close out today…we want to tell you more about the Leader Lens series — and specifically: Our next Leader Lens. First — Leader Lens is a monthly audiocast series that – beginning with the next one on May 26th – is a format of 30-minute interviews with leading thinkers across a wide spectrum and I will speaking to them about their passions and the future of leadership. We’re calling Leader Lens a dial-in and listen series – a half-hour with each month’s guest– and all you need to do is dial in and listen. We’ll also be taping these sessions for podcasting on InteractionAssociates.com May 26: Our first guest will be David McConville — to talk about immersive and transformational learning and specifically how that applies to developing leaders today. David is a man of many talents: a leading business thinker, inventor, futurist of-sorts, — and widely known as creator of the GeoDome. The GeoDome is an innovative immersive environment that advances transformational learning by powerfully visualizing complex data and trends. Trends such as water scarcity, population expansion, etc. David’s going to talk to us about systemic thinking – and looking at trends holistically. We’re excited to have David lined up – and promise an invigorating half-hour into the world as he’s helping people see it. I hope you will join us.

  • And to wrap up today– I’d like to point to the Harvard Business Review…and a recent HBR article titled Why Sustainability is the Key Driver of Innovation. The piece was written by the great business strategist and author, C.K. Pra-ha(accent)-lad — who sadly died last week. He argued that the current economic system has placed enormous pressures on our planet while catering to the needs of only about a quarter of the ppl in the world. That traditional approaches to business will collapse, and companies will have to develop innovative solutions” He said – “This will happen only when executives recognize a simple truth – Sustainability = Innovation”. I’d like to end there. We look forward to having you at our next Leader Lens on May 26 with David McConville. Thanks for joining us – and I’ll turn this back to Michael Tirrell
