countering populism

Harold Jarche

She addressed these tribes not by creating a new tribe, but by discounting the tribal perspective and focusing on the population’s common humanity instead. I would say that populism is the first refuge of a scoundrel and a literate, engaged, and networked citizenry gives no such refuge.

If a leader discounts that there are letters toward the bottom of the eye chart, no doubt it will become a recipe for employee disengagement. If you look at this graphic I mashed up long enough, it begins to make sense.

Feel the Fear

John Hagel

First, we tend to become more risk averse – we emphasize the risk of action and discount the rewards that can come from action. I perceive that fear is becoming pervasive and increasingly intense around the world. When I share this perception with others, I often get the response: “What fear? I don’t know many people who are afraid.”. That’s part of the problem. The fear is often not visible unless we know where and how to look for it. Why is that the case?

The DOL study under Labor Secretary Hilda Solis takes into account women’s role in family, child care and health duties.

John Hagel

  In times of high uncertainty, we all have a natural tendency to magnify risk and discount reward. And time becomes much too uncertain when risk and return perceptions magnify risk and discount returns.   They lead us to further magnify risk and discount potential rewards.   Rather than magnifying risk and discounting rewards, opportunity based narratives help to make long-term rewards more tangible.

Infomediaries - A Significant Untapped Opportunity

John Hagel

Second, as the trusted advisor/infomediaries scale, they also have the potential to provide additional value to customers by bargaining for volume discounts given the amount of business they could potentially bring. Of course, this involves a balancing act to make sure that the infomediaries are connecting their customers with the products and services that are most relevant to them, even if they cannot obtain a deeper discount.
