"Thanks for your feedback, David. I agree with your comments regarding the precarious state of the U.S., economy at that time. Canadians, too, are cavalier in their attitude towards their country's economy and banking system. While our big five…"

"Jim, I am so glad you wrote this!  Tim Geithner is a hero, as in Ben Bernanke and those who worked with them. Bernanke, being THE world-leading expert on the Great Depression, said this was worse. He said that on one day of September 2008, 12…"

Stress Test: Leadership through Integrity and Humility

I never liked Timothy Geithner from the start when his tight-lipped, grim face began appearing regularly on the nightly news during the 2007-2008 financial meltdown and the ensuing Great Recession. Although he was the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and subsequently Treasury Secretary, he came across in the media as shifty, arrogant and a man not to be trusted. That perception held until…See More

Lead Through Mutual Commitment, Not Compliance

I was a young greenhorn economist with just a tad of related work experience. I’d worked in consumer lending after college for two years, but had grown disgusted with the countless hours I had to spend collecting loan arrears, knocking on doors and harassing single moms. So it was back to university for two years, all the while our first born was still in diapers.So I thought I’d hit the jackpot…See More

Crisis Leadership: Clarifying What Needs to be Done

Think of a time when you were under a lot of pressure with a very short deadline. I don’t mean being at Starbucks trying to decide on which decadent coffee you were debating on ordering. I mean serious pressure–and it doesn’t have to be necessarily work related. It could have been dealing with a medical decision relating to an ageing parent, a child or spouse.What went through your mind at…See More

Do It with People, Not To Them: Share the Power

It seems like almost yesterday when organizations in both the public and private sectors were pumped with such concepts as servant leadership, values and ethics, and shared (distributed) leadership. Indeed, your correspondent did his Master’s thesis in 1999 on shared leadership. Dateline: the Nineties, when a wide variety of leadership thinkers and practitioners advocated the integration…See More

Will Gen Z be the Disruptive Generation?

The media loves hyperbole. If there’s a way to spin a story or add drama to it, whether needlessly or not, the media has perfected the art. Examples abound so I won’t waste your time reciting well known instances.There’s a new storyline being developed now, but one that will take years to play out to validate the excitement that the media is attempting to stir up: Generation Z, and how it will…See More

Do No Harm: 5 Leadership Lessons to Live By

The bangs were incredibly loud. Across the street the shoppers at the liquor store and grocery store plaza were startled. The nearby homeowners called 911. And the staff at the elementary school down the street (which my two oldest granddaughters attend) were alarmed.“Don’t worry, you won’t even know we’re here,” explained a member of the Ottawa Police Service (OPS) to local residents and business owners in…See More

Discover Your Leadership Trail

400th Post on Wordpress! We’re living in a technological age where almost any type of work can be outsourced to far-away countries, where labor market skill needs of employers are out of balance with the supply (what people have to offer) and where instantaneity and multi-tasking are robbing us of the down-time so important to personal reflection, inquiry and learning. And it’s having dire…See More

Leadership and Three Success Keys for the City of the Future

Cities come in all shapes and sizes. Trying to rank cities by size gets rather difficult because of municipal boundaries. What’s relevant is using accepted urban boundaries to define a city. In other words, a common labor market is the key driver in determining a “city” and its socio-economic composition.In North America, the largest cities (urban areas ) in descending order are New York City (20.6…See More

An Ageing Population in All Its Glory

Turn on the TV news, read your favorite newspaper or magazine, or go online to read the news, and you’ll probably encounter a story about our ageing population, or at least a story linked to it.Most Western countries are facing long-term problems because of a greying population. But so, too, are Japan and South Korea, to name just two. Canada and the U.S. are among the more fortunate because…See More
