Comments04/12/2016 #28 Sara Jacobovici#25 The beauty of your comment @CityVP Manjit for me is that the discussion can go on like the layers of an onion. There is the discussion in science as to the influence of the observer. As well, I have heard those who discuss reaching a point of observing their own meditation. This discussion expands into an area of doing which is beyond the physical. In my buzz, I make the following statement: Whereas animals act in a way that demonstrates what they know in the real world, humans also know without necessarily exerting the effort of doing what they know; the knowing remains in an abstract sense.04/12/2016 #25 CityVP Manjit#23 In terms of action and meditation - to do and observe is a doing - but not to do and observe is observation, then one is not shaping observation with one's doing, but observing in the fullness - that is what meaningful meditation is, otherwise we engage in a doing called meditation.04/12/2016 #24 Mohammed Sultan#20 What I really meant is that integration of both quant+ qualit research methods(inputs) may yield unified results and clear cut evidence(ouputs) and lead to one action(decision),while, the same method of integrated quant+qual research on different research area my lead to multiple actions or multiple decisions .I wish it would satisfy your need.04/12/2016 #23 Sara Jacobovici#22 Thank you @CityVP Manjit, for your comment, perspective and share. I can relate to everything you write. I have one question; how do you see "action and meditation" as distinct from "action and doing"? From my perspective, there is no difference between "movement as it relates to heart, lung and spine" and "sitting with the conception and allowing it to wash over one's mind."04/12/2016 #22 CityVP ManjitI love the distinction here between action and doing. It further emphasizes for me the distinction between action learning and learning. The biggest challenge I have is in understanding and translating information through a mathematical lens and that simply underscores why mathematics should be taught far more differently to the young - not at all the way it was taught to me.
So even conceptually created formula's are challenging for me whereas visual representations of the same thing make things far more accessible for me and so the idea of movement as it relates to heart, lung and spine was meaningful.
The value however in conceptual formula (and this is opposite to a formulaic response) is sitting with the conception and allowing it to wash over one's mind. The link then between action and meditation becomes vitally important, even more important than the distinction between action and doing.04/12/2016 #20 Sara Jacobovici#18 I respectfully suggest @Mohammed Sultan that perhaps it is not the "integration of the input" that led to a separation of the output and yielded to actions but to the "separation of the reasons". I can only assume that the actions occurring at this stage are isolated from the task at hand.04/12/2016 #18 Mohammed Sultan#15 The question "Why" always reveal an integration of the both approaches qual+quant by giving more insights and sometimes also lead to to clear separation between what are findings and what's interpretation.An example of using the question why or what are the reasons ;Why our brand has been eroded by a new start up in a particular area ? the answer to the question help us to have an integrated idea and understanding of both the dynamics and psychology of this marketplace .And can also lead to a clear separation of the reasons as it may be because a lack of demand or a lack of advertising support.In the first example we may need one solid decision to solve the problem of brand eroding and in the second example we may need two separate decisions; economic and advertising decisions.For the first we may need to understand the trend of Per Capita and for the second we may need to increase the advertising budget.The integration of the input have led to a separation of the output and yielded to actions.04/12/2016 #15 Sara Jacobovici#13 As always @Mohammed Sultan, your wise, insightful comments and experience provides a great contribution to the discussion. For me, the best remark you can offer me is the times you refer to integration, for that is my aim. I am relieved to hear from you that the integration occurred.04/12/2016 #13 Mohammed Sultan@ Sara Jacobovici.It's really a great post.At least if we couldn't absorb your wisdom because it goes beyond our knowledge ,we can enjoy your logic.The sign of intelligence is to bear two opposing processes in mind and still functioning well.You took us "both ways" to reach the "action" stage without seeing any red lights.From a quantitative process to a qualitative conclusion,to reaching results and taking actions,and the other way round from qualitative insights to quantitative measures that may also have more appeal to some people.I am really moved by your way of thinking, when you also integrated both qualitative and quantitative processes,not only to stretch our thinking beyond logic and norms by asking ",why" but also make our journey with your way of thinking more enjoyable.These are the types of questions which are put to our qualitative methods ,questions which demand an explanation and understanding of behavior ,rather than simply a description and enumeration of it.I am sure that the value of integrating both processes provides not only insights and understanding to our strategic decisions ,but also add an extra dimension to the type of information provided for an effective plan with feeling.04/12/2016 #10 Ali AnaniDear @Sara Jacobovici- his is a brilliant buzz, which I shared proudly. I am equally proud that I have a mention in this post. I am very grateful to your addition of the flow chart because this reflects my understanding of your buzz. That you summed so many ideas in such a flow is admirable. You put the pieces together and knitted a great weave. To explain so many concepts in such a flowing manner is truly admirable. I am sure many people will use this buzz as a reference to many definitions. Surely Iam, and I find this work outstanding. It is so clear that you leave out no voids to fill. I look forward to reading the second part of it. Congratulations04/12/2016 #9 Sara Jacobovici#7 That is shear poetry @Mohammed A. Jawad. Thank you very much. Much insight can be found in your 2 lines. I break your whole into quarters of pairs and highlight 3/4: "we cancel ignorance and embrace true illumination", "closer to flawless truths and realities"; "adhere to those truths and take initiatives for realistic action". Thank you.04/12/2016 #8 Max Carter#6 You might want to check out the piece I wrote earlier today called Emotional Intelligence = Empathic Intuition, It might give you some ideas and I am curious as to your thoughts on it.

Comments04/12/2016 #4 Max Carter#3 For most people I would agree @Franci Eugenia Hoffman however currently at least 10% of our population could considered Empath and it is a born skill that only gets sharper with age. I was able to hone in on other peoples emotions accurately as a child and my mother was often surprised by this.
For an Empath they do it as matter of breathing as it is a born trait that has no off switch. For an Empath it's more about learning to manage it as they are always engaged and when when engaged with an Empath who is focused on you solely they are reading the totality of your emotional self in the moment.
I go over this in greater detail in this Buzz
I had to republish it as for some reason I could not find it in my backlog.04/12/2016 #3 Franci Eugenia HoffmanNice piece, Max. I believe we must be open and honest with ourselves in order to understand others. What we sense in ourselves makes us aware of what to look for in others. Looking through the eyes of another has to be a honed skill because you have to completely forget about self to do so.04/12/2016 #2 Max Carter#1 Thank you @Sara Jacobovici I undertook the unthinkable task of destroying my identity or ego living in the egoless state for a few years in order understand the concepts I write about. Everything I write unless otherwise stated is based in experience and a few years of field research.
The bulk of my work has been with people who have been told they are mentally ill when in fact they possess one or more pronounced natural born ability to read far beyond what the text have been telling us for far too many years and many people have been made to suffer for this ignorance.
In fact we are evolving as a people and these pronounced traits of Empath Telepath and Medium and others are showing in greater numbers because the species is evolving to this.
I myself am all 3 and evolution and genetics is the only explanation that makes sense after studying over 100,000 people.04/12/2016 #1 Sara JacoboviciThank you for bringing my attention to your post @Max Carter. I very much appreciate your perspective here and the work you're doing; "assisting people in opening up to their intuitive self and assisting them in becoming more accurate in their reading of emotion". I find it crucial to be open and aware of all aspects of ourselves and reconnect with those parts that have been covered up over the years with layers of learning that doesn't integrate all of our innate abilities. As our well, your discussion about emotions and wisdom reminded me of one of my favorite expressions; a wise heart.

Comments03/12/2016 #3 David B. GrinbergExcellent points and wonderful images, Ben. I agree that brevity is key in today's frenetically paced mobile, digital and virtual Information Age. Let's also recall that the average attention span of most people is less than that of a goldfish, at least according to one recent study. Moreover, information overload online and off is fast becoming the rule, rather than the exception.
Thus, distilling any information, especially sales pitches, to a clear and concise statement is critically important. Thanks for the good advice, which I'm sharing on three hives.

It feels good to know you liked the post as well as it's an Inspiring one sharing my gratitude. Hope your comment will help many to find their path or find a mentor to follow ahead.04/12/2016 #13 Dean OwenLeaders 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.04/12/2016 #10 Franci Eugenia HoffmanI 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.04/12/2016 #9 Mohammed Sultan@ 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.03/12/2016 #8 Max Carter#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.03/12/2016 #7 Sushmita Thakare Jain#6 @Max Carter agree with you on this, nowadays Leadership is all about the authoritative function one receives in an organization or within the society. You are on the right path when saying 'leadership has nothing to do with title or function and is a mode of living'
Let's hope it changes in the coming time!03/12/2016 #6 Max Carter#3 @Sushmita Thankare Jain that quote you shared is why I say leadership has nothing to do with title or function and is a mode of living. Most people that actually live leadership have no title that we mistakenly associate as leadership when what we are really talking about is authoritative function.03/12/2016 #3 Sushmita Thakare Jain#1 @Max Carter your shared views reminded me of a quote ' Great leaders don't set out to be a leader! They set out to make a difference, for them it is never about the role it is always about the goal.'
Appreciate you sharing your views about Leadership. 👍
'It is by the example that is set by the leader that the people follow.' as a leader always leads by example and not by force.03/12/2016 #2 David B. GrinbergThank you, Sushmita, for such a wonderful read. Your words of wisdom about leadership really resonated with me. You offer excellent examples and terrific tips. I'm sharing this buzz in three hives: "Business" and "Leadership" and "Inspiration." Keep buzzing!
cc: @Javier beBee @John White, MBA03/12/2016 #1 Max CarterI 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.

My hometown used to be known as the "Screw Capital of the World," built under the direction of progressive family ownership near the turn of the last century.
However, they grew complacent while the revenue flowed without having to change anything, making many of them multi-millionaire captains of industry.

Comments02/12/2016 #3 Renée CormierIt's funny you should post this today. This morning I was thinking about someone I know (and I have met many others like this) who has a wealth of opportunity before him that could easily be turned into something very profitable, but somehow this person can't get out of his own way to make anything happen. I don't know if it is fear of failure, failure to clearly see the vision or just plain laziness, but people like that frustrate me. It seems to me that the holy trinity of success consists of idea, opportunity and drive (idea + opportunity + drive = success). The three must work together and drive is the most important factor of all. It makes me crazy to see people deny the great gifts of opportunity and creative ideas.
