    @CityVP Manjit- theory is something and practicing it can be another thing. Leaders should be great listeners, but how often we notice a self-acclaimed leaders talks and rarely listens. It is like somebody swimming in a small and shallow pond and claiming h/s is a great leader. I second the comment of @Franci Eugenia Hoffman

    Outstanding read, @CityVP Manjit - I am especially fond of this statement ""Best Practices" is not practice - that is simply imitation of leadership practices of the fake it till you make it kind. This brings me back to what the LEAD is in leadership. Best practice is not leadership, it is followership. The leader is the person/group whose practice was emulated and vaunted as a best practice."

    Fun article @Paul Walters. I myself have scowled at the introduction of 'foam' and 'deconstructed' meals. However, that all said the fact that chefs take pride in the visual element of your meal shouldn't really come as a shock. Unbeknown to most consumers the eating experience really is gauged as much smell and visual as it is taste. Presentation is a huge part of our food and drink culture and I see little harm in it regardless of the size of the meal... Well unless it's foam....

    "Now why did I think of the Wall Street /government relationship when I read this: :-)
    "Now, when there is a pack chasing the future, and everyone is feeding off each other’s energy, it usually seems like the squirrel will be caught. Then, the pack gets impatient. Some of the chasers stop, and some take detours when they see a slower squirrel. The chasers are bound and determined to catch a squirrel, and soon even the guides are allowing them to take complete and unobstructed control."

    An excellent analogy Ray. I've always seemed to become involved in process or reporting improvement projects in my jobs. Can't help it, if I find a better way to do something; I will. The problem; Those confounded squirrels dangling from the limbs. The leader dogs get all excited, lose focus, and start jumping up and down wanting to try for different squirrels.
    In the case of choosing some BI software, and after 3 false starts, I finally said; "I don't care what package you pick, just pick one and I'll make it work, I swear I will, if you'll just pick one!".

    'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
    And grace my fears relieved
    How precious did that grace appear
    The hour I first believed

    When we've been there ten thousand years
    Bright shining as the sun
    We've no less days to sing God's praise
    Than when we first begun

    #5 Well said @Kevin Pashuk. It is true, grace is often misunderstood within the church walls. And I agree, grace and love is something that is quite personal and may have nothing whatsoever to do with religious or church affiliation. (FYI: I was blessed to be able to visit Zanzibar and walk that slave route and visited the old dungeons where those slaves were held. It was chilling.)

    #2 #3 Thanks for including me in on this John and Irene. You've picked two hymns that are special to me, and I regularly play contemporary versions of them.

    The power in the words demonstrate a faith that transcends religion, In the case of John Newton, a complete turn around and repentance from his life as a slave trader, and in the case of Horatio Spafford, a deep trust in God despite an incomprehensible loss. Interestingly enough, Spafford's church relegated the tragedy to judgement... showing that even back then the concept of grace and love were misunderstood by organized religion of the day. (Don't get me wrong... I do attend church, but one that understands the concept that judgement is not our job)

    What I love about beBee is different about what I disliked about Facebook and LinkedIn. I hated Facebook from the start because I saw it as a huge marketing machine that showed a remarkably cavalier attitude against privacy - over time Facebook had to reel in its practices to create protections around privacy, all the while as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg found himself back in the center of the privacy debate with his "privacy is dead" meme spreading. http://www.nbcnews.com/id/34825225/ns/technology_and_science-tech_and_gadgets/t/privacy-dead-facebook-get-over-it/ - what Zuckerberg was trying to say is that privacy is no longer a social norm, which is really incredulous when it is new players Facebook who set these new social norms.

    LinkedIn however did improve and I quite like LinkedIn - what I love about LinkedIn is that there is still a lot of bright people who use that platform. When I look at what LinkedIn founders are engaging in areas of lecturing at places like Stanford University - so I am not saying that their lectures on blitzscaling were brilliant, I am saying that Reid Hoffman and his cohorts from Greylock Ventures lectures on technology are fucking brilliant - and I don't want to use the "f" word online unless I am emphasizing amazing rather than as attacking.

    It is only because of my college students use Facebook that I finally rolled back years of distrust and recently joined Facebook - and to my surprise there are certain features of it which have proven useful and it actually is far more than a marketing machine.

    What I love about beBee is that it offers me far greater living learning space. If you want to sell me, you cannot but learning, yes.

    Leaders come in all shapes and forms. There are clearly plenty of successful leaders who do not have the traits you mention. I was thinking about narcissism today and whether leaders should be somewhat narcissistic. It certainly works for the likes of Branson and Trump, two ends of the extreme, one caring, and the other, not so much. In the end, I figure there is no clear recipe of traits for successful leadership.

    I must say this is one of the best posts I have read about leadership. So many articles I've read offer cookie cutter advice. Your statement "Nobody is perfect most leaders take responsibility for training themselves to be effective. Whether they may learn from the wisdom of others or get insights from their personal experience or use both, becoming a more effective leader is about what one does, rather than what they know." is spot on. I also agree with Max about being titled a leader doesn't make it so.

    @ Suschmita Thakare Jain .Inspiring article.Leaders are "twice" born, once when they have an idea and then when they turn the idea into success.The true leaders bear the dignity and history of their organisation making the best of their people.They always achieve unprecedented success not because of their skills or experience ,but because they have the passion ,the will and the motivation to keep going and not to regress to mediocrity.Leadership for some means visioning but for many it means inspiring.They lead with passion and energize with focus,and focus with clarity.They provide the followers with the fuel for a long journey and with integrity that keeps them humor,honest and credible.Leaders vocabularies include endless positive words like;trust,authenticity,diversity,determination,love ,fun,creativity,empathy,sharing,daring and risk taking..etc.The most gratifying thing about leaders who lead by example is that they can quickly surface people with exceptional informal leadership to replace them.

    #7 @Sushmita Thakare Jain I agree with the hope for it changing however the only it will is when we stop associating. leadership with title and function and call it what it is. It means having to have the many people who write on the subject stop referring to positions as positions of leadership and call them authoritative positions or something.

    As long the market is flooded with the idea of leadership being tied to title and function it will not change.

    I always felt this summed up leadership.

    There are traits that define a leader and they are traits that are visible in the actions and attitudes of any true leader.

    It begins with the acknowledgment that a leader’s first duty is to identify the needs of the people and serve those needs until the goal is accomplished.

    There are times that a leader will need to make sacrifices in order to meet the needs of the people who are taking care of the greater needs.

    It is by the example that is set by the leader that the people follow.

    Every true leader understands that not even the King or the Queen is above the law, they exemplify it.

    No one ever has to question what a leader is doing, they see it in their actions and their attitudes and they operate with transparency.

    A leader has nothing to hide and everything to share in order to provide for the greater needs. The key word for me when thinking about leadership is “need.”

    To understand leadership one must understand the difference between need and desire or want. One must be willing to give up want or desire in favor of need.

    One must allow for want and desire to be fulfilled, but never at the expense of the needs of others.

    I don't know Jim if it is so much tied to fame as it is to riches. One of the problems with social media, news media, and reality bullsh** television is these idiots are getting rich. The public never sees the millions that lose everything trying for that get rich quick crapola. Everyone thinks; that being like trump (I love that spelling corrector doesn't ask me to capitalize that name) will somehow win you the get rich lottery, that he gives two hoots in hell whether others get rich, that he actually cares about this country, (e.g. will be splitting his time between running the country and still running his businesses, but then he's so brilliant, or so he thinks, he can do both, where every other president aged considerably in the office). This nation has given him what he wanted, the title; The most powerful man in the world. Isn't that what has been assigned to the u.s. presidents in the past? I stick by my support of a recent post here on beBee; "How stupid are we?". (Dang, I wish I could remember the name of the Bee who wrote that!).
    So many believe the uproar will die down, that we'll will calmly walk into the sunset and accept this nightmare that has been foisted upon us.
    On my commute home this week I passed by a church that always has encouraging and sometimes really thought provoking messages on their sign. Since the election there have been 3 words: "Pray for Courage".
    Those three words have stuck with me because I know We The People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union; are going to need the courage of a Lion, and the equally stubborn will of this jackass to endure what is to come.

    Funny, after reading this buzz, I can claim that you and I agree - you simply phrase it a bit differently. For example, You say: "I have come to believe that the percentage of the idiot to non-idiot out there is actually very small." Agreed! (And thanks for making me laugh out-loud after reading that line!) You say: "the perception that is created regarding idiots tends to make the idiot population look much larger than it actually is." Agreed! This has always been true of the media, it is no different today than it ever was. However, the volume to which we are exposed has increased exponentially - and that is disturbing. You say: "I hate to say it, but the best way to keep from becoming victimized by all this is to dial up your cynicism a bit." With this I basically agree, but I do not see it as 'cynicism' - and perhaps it's a matter of semantics - but I see it more as common sense awareness. We must teach our children 'awareness' of the truth about how media works, this goes for marketing in general. News, for instance is a product, that is being marketed and sold to the masses - it is not necessarily the truth. Media & Marketing too much of the time lacks integrity and thus, I am always skeptical of its claims. Is that cynicism or common sense? Hmm - if it is cynicism, perhaps I'm simply an 'ole Beezer' too!

    Nothing wrong with a spoonful of cynicism, my friend. @Jim Murray rants are the spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down, IMHO. A recent Netflix binge on Oliver Stone's "Untold History of the United States" has given me hope that we've survived levels of stupidity I didn't know existed (those that started the nuclear arms race, Cold War, etc.). There will seemingly always be a new idiocy fad, but it too shall pass (if only to make way for another).

    If it is on TV, it was written, produced and broadcast with an agenda and tied prerequisite money consideration - At nowhere in this process is TRUTH alive nor considered. The BBC has famously let slip that their programming is not important to be accurate, but entertaining and "relevant". The other networks are no better. They are all lying whores, the only difference is for whom and how much - signed just another f*cking cynic.

    ...but the founders ideas have a habit of cropping up in other places...I mean --if you look at Ancient Greece, for example --you can still go there (physically) ...the ideas moved elsewhere...
    ...hell there's still a place called England that used to be an extremely oppressive empire that ruled my current physical location...but by the time I was a "tween"; all was forgiven...I got to watch the Stones on the "Dean Martin Variety Hour", etc.

    Let me place four points as a compass - OBSERVING - THINKING - WRITING - APPLYING then the compass of Lada Prkic is not who follows because in this life we do not know who it is we really touch. A simple exchange that happened in one day could be a life changer and yet having 10,000 followers can become a life accumulation and collecting people has an economic value for those that slice and dice in follower value. In observing I love people who are different from me because we can learn from people who are different from us. In thinking I love thinkers, people who are thinking because they want to learn. In writing it is about flow - how much the writer is in flow, not how many followers a writer has. I love flow not followers. In applying, this learning goes back to one's home for me and home is not a global village, it is the people you love, the center where one hopefully is fully present. If work is what we applying then that changes our compass, so find that True North. Best part of all this is my learning.

    #40 Surprise was the prevalent reaction with most of my peers also, Claire.

    #38 Awareness of our subconscious biases is certainly essential, Kev, if we are to benefit from diversity in the workforce. The IAT is certainly an essential tool in this respect and is not by any means a Character assessment tool. But with this knowledge comes the challenge of constantly reminding ourselves and bringing on board the tools and aids to look at the world of diversity. The lenses we wear don't always have to be convergent.

    Thanks for the tag Ken... This is an area where I tend to have some opinions... but I'll spare you. In my work I've been subjected to almost any personality profiling tool that is/was out there. All of them basically certify me as nuts... oh, wait, that was the test where I asked my wife if she thought I was 'normal'.

    On the subject of bias... we all look at life through lenses, but they don't have to control us (i.e. allow us to excuse our behaviour). Being aware of how we are wired is usually a good step toward doing something about the shoddy areas.

    #19 That is what learning is - a very long ladder in a snakes and ladder board of a life-time of experiences. Soul searching arises when reality throws up a dish we didn't think we would be served. I do think that it is the sheer weight of recent shifts of the populous that have shaken up people who had embraced 21st Century living, only to realize that evolution is operating from the century people are still living in, rather than the chronological century.

    The value of soul searching is an essential transition in our own growth and it is absolutely healthy - so long as we keep our own focus on the health. Soul searching is best an opening up of our lives and not a withdrawal back. How that expresses itself in my own life is that I have to step out of what I think am in, rather than get deeper into the weeds of my own introspection that effect my inner biology.

    It is the flow of our inner life - the cortisol, adrelanin, dopamine and serotonin reactions within us that are linked to our own mindfulness - never mind the inner psychological. What is happening to us is what is happening to the world - and that is why I welcome this conversation on bias, and later today will follow up on the link @Dean Owen provided on prejudice.

    I am here to change the one thing that I know I can change in this world, which is me. I call this my learning journey but I also view the learning journey of others of people who I don't want to actually change, but simply appreciate. Our bodies are whole systems and bias is simply a small line item in the challenge of "know thyself". When I reframe meaning that way I begin to see wisdom.

If I have biases I'm not aware of, I'd like to know! My ultimate goal (well one of my goals) is to get to know more people across the globe and vice versa.. I'd like them to get to know me, the human behind a label we all get, "White, black, American, Australian," and on the list goes.

    A Bias is an inevitable block we face at many points in our life dear Ken! Racial, gender, caste, culture, political, professional, economic...it is a divide in the mind! I guess one of the many struggles in life involves dealing with and demystifying these biases that crop up at key moments in life. A refinement of perspective is nothing but the shedding away of biases I feel.

    #22 Thank you for sharing your student marking experience, Vincent. We discussed some similar examples in our workshop, from which I have concluded that it is very difficult for most of us to detach ourselves from our prejudices without guidance. Incidentally, perhaps we are so enticed by television programmes such as The Voice (with its Blind Auditions) because prejudice and bias (certainly associated with age and race) are removed from the initial selection process.

    I did a small 'marking' experiment this year. I decided to ask my students to type out their essays using the same conventions in terms of font, size, alignment, and even the same colour of paper used BUT to leave out their names. When they handed their papers in, I asked that they submit not to me directly but to leave on the desk in the classroom while I stood a distance away. When I started reading their work, I had no idea (and I mean I had absolutely no idea) who wrote what. I tried to attribute a particular style of writing to a particular student but I thought I was just speculating and that would not be helpful. So I went for the content, the quality of the writing and with the help of a rubric went about the task. What I found surprised me. The top three students in the class in their term examinations were no where near the top in that particular assignment. The top in the assignment were students who achieved Cs in their exams. That got me thinking. Was I biased in my marking? Did the top three take the assignment seriously? Consistently in marking is so important these days and what the small experiment demonstrated to me was the importance of detaching myself from the student who wrote it and to focus on the merits of the writing. Not easy!

    The city scene in the clip from Koyaanisqatsi [Hopi word for life out of balance or crazy life] does not play on the logical but the emotional, emphasized by the great music of Philip Glass. To look for evidence of fractal emotions we need to observe our own emotions in relationship and interaction with the individual observations of other human beings

    Koyaanisqatsi - City Scene
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNzH59-juFM

    The emotional fractal in Koyaanisqatsi is how it is we as human beings notice patterns. Yet this is at the higher order of thinking. Patterns are also noticed at the lowest order of thinking, which is what led to the formation of religious belief and interpreting cosmology and linking it a greater divine order - all of this the emotional fractal in operation.

    That we don't see it is simply when we have eyes but do not see, that we don't hear it likewise with our ears. People have a hard time in understanding what fractal geometry is, so the challenge of seeing emotional fractals becomes exponentially more challenging - but the patterns are there - even in architecture and the pattern recognition Christopher Alexandra noticed - but first it takes time to notice new patterns and then the patience to convert those new patterns into new ways of thinking and acting.

    intriguing post indeed sir @Ali Anani! i recently came across in a publication, where it has been expressed that the volume of water in human body is sharply decreasing! the external material we intake and its chemical effect can lead to produce excess alcohol as well other toxins in our body, causing detriment to our body politic, where i guess, we are becoming a softest victims, as our food habit as well the constituents in the food has largely changed. consequently our behavioral pattern also making an unpredictable gesture too! our bile duct, responsible for HCL containment is eventually causing toxic impact too and perhaps for the modern food and lifestyle making a large impact on us, sometimes even initiating carcinogenic growth in our body. even it can tend to make us pretty weird in terms of our attributions! however, great post sir. enjoyed read. thank you very much for the share.

    Dear @Mohammed Sultan- like almost no two fingerprints are identical I dare say the same to fractals. No human fractals are exactly of the same structure. Just like trees no trees are identical, even though structurally they look the same. Are human fractals the new fingerprints?
    For emotions are molecules with different charges. The more crowded we are with emotions, we notice the crowdedness effect observed in labs by bacterial cells. It leads eventually to self-organizing in the form of fractals. Now, which emotions are charged with, the interactions of these molecular emotions shall be. If negative emotions prevail with high intensity they shall give a structurally different fractal from that of say "balanced emotions".
    I thank you for crowing my mind with your revealing comment. You, too, provoke my mind.

    Dear @ Ali Anani PhD .Your posts always provoke positive fractal emotions in side us and give us the motive to respond.The provoked fractals of emotions always lead to fractal of motivations and fractals of decisions,the more focused on purpose,the less fractal emotions we will have.The sort of fractal emotions also influences the kind of decisions we take.We provoke quicker and intensive fractal emotions when we are driven by fear rather than by gain.Everybody has a lot of fractal emotions and no body has the same structure and also they vary from time for the same person.Change of the mix and intensity of fractal emotions can also lead to change in behavior or motive.The intensity of these fractals can drive some people to regress to negative emotions,and some followers to become more jealous toward the leader.Their direct their fractals and so their decisions to adopt me-too strategies because they become more jealous toward the leader .Followers who are driven by fear of losing their market share always have more fractals than the leader who has the focus and fuel to innovate or change or even retaliate.People of more emotional fractals who are driven by fear either adopt me-too strategies or resort to their status quo .
