The title you see for this LEAP!psych item is the one I used for an article that appeared in the January, 2016 (Vol. 3, No. 1), edition of Assumption University of Thailand (Bangkok) business school’s ODI Journal.
I used the much appreciated invitation by the journal’s editors to talk about how new ways of tracking changes [...]
If you’ve never scouted up a copy of my book, The Mother of All Minds: Leaping Free of an Outdated Human Nature, here is how it begins:
Without the ”I,” there would be few books. And certainly not this book. The ”I,” of course, is all about the ego. As you are about to discover, I [...]
On a fall day in 1961, in his classroom at Union College in Schenectady, New York, the late Dr. Clare W. Graves hurried to a blackboard. Writing as fast as he could, he jotted down the rudiments of an explanation both for conundrums that had been plaguing his own research and for the fundamental confusions [...]
I have a set of bowl-like items—some plastic, some metal, some actually food bowls from the kitchen—that I’ve taken with me all over the world.
Customs officials have looked at me strangely but have never asked why I carry around the basins or what they are used for. I think they may assume that I’m [...]
If you came into this website through the back door, you may not have noticed this change right off, if at all. But the navbar on this page isn’t where it used to be.
As you no doubt know, the navbar is a generalized list of contents on a website. On this particular page, it used [...]

If you didn’t see our e-mail announcements of this activity, we’ve made it easy to arrange for purchase on any of the major [...]
Here’s how the webzine’s article begins:
“The waters of our business practices are as bloody as ever. And bloody waters make for muddy waters, contributing to costly blunders, wasted motion, nonproductive expenditures and other dispiriting outcomes. How best to change this? Think like a dolphin, not a shark.”
You can read the entire commentary by LEAP!psych’s editor [...]
I’ve been asked more than a few times where the idea of the carp-shark-NoQuiff-dolphin mindset and worldview model came from. The story takes some telling because this was one of those “one thing led to another, and another, and another” kinds of developments.
A critical component of the “a-ha!” that led to the model’s materialization [...]
The healthy human brain is no dummy. By the time it reaches adulthood, it knows a lot about what works and what doesn’t work. Where it gets in trouble is when things that it thought worked no longer do so, at least not well enough.
When that brain was much younger and in the body of [...]
Friends of ours told us the other night about their grandson, now 7, who lives just down the street from them. That means he spends a lot of nights at their place, school nights included. And that means either his grandmother or his granddad (but usually his grandmother) is freighted with the task of rousting [...]
