Bullet Brain, Liquid Soul: A new metaphor and a strategy for empowering your humanity and improving your results
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 [...]
One of firefighting’s greatest leaders ever —Chief Alan Brunacini— gives ‘power goofers’ a good hosing.
When I first met Alan Brunacini, I had no idea that he was a prototype of what I would come to call “the dolphin thinker.” He was simply a super-nice guy, who was already being steadily promoted by his employer, the Phoenix (Ariz.) Fire Department. I was a reporter for the local newspaper. A few [...]
Visiting the reject pile: Some things I said, and don’t mind saying again, that were left out of LEAP!
I never write “a” book. In the two years or so I’m at the task of producing a new work, I write the equivalent of several books. Write and cull, write and cull. The false starts and other anomalies that don’t seem to get me where I want to go at the time are cut [...]
Because life runs up, not down, syntropy is a cosmic kitchen, not a cosmic wrecking yard. But we have to scramble to keep up.
At this hour, the world now stands on the verge of yet another great technological revolution. It has been mainly been gathering steam since the 1980s. Each day brings us closer to a time when a Star Trek-like economy may be possible. In fact, as the days go by and the breakthroughs and advances pile [...]
I’ve been known to speak of the dolphinthinker’s iron fin.
This is sometime confused with the dolphinthinker’s “iron fist,” but they are not the same. That iron fist is the dolphinthinker’s unmistakable resolve and demand to be noticed and be heeded without further ado (e.g., in life-threatening moments). The iron fin is the dolphinthinker’s audacious, [...]
A New Look for Brain Technologies
at Home. And Reports on Numerous Innovative Activities by Our Talented “FOBTCs” (Friends of BTC)
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 [...]
THE LATE INSOO KIM BERG WAS A DOLPHINTHINKER’S DOLPHIN. ABOVE ALL, SHE WANTED REAL SOLUTIONS FOR HER THERAPY CLIENTS, AND SHE WANTED THEM NOW
The therapist was a tiny woman with dark, closely cropped hair, magnetic eyes and a ready, inviting smile. Her name was Insoo Kim Berg. She was born in Korea, came to the U.S. in 1957 to study and stayed.
The person closest to her was her husband, a jazz-musician-turned-psychotherapist named Steve de Shazer. She persuaded [...]
AND SELF-LEARNING APPROACHES
AT BANGKOK’S ASSUMPTION UNIVERSITY OFFER NEW MODELS FOR GRADUATE BUSINESS EDUCATION
It probably isn’t a subject that graduate business students arriving at the Hua Mak Campus of Bangkok’s Assumption University normally expect to tackle. But when their experiences using Brain Technologies’ change tools and models are complete, few other aspects of their studies are likely to have a more lasting influence on their lives and careers.
ONE OF OUR READERS TAKES THE PLUNGE AND INVITES US TO JOIN HIS LEAP CHEERING SQUAD. (IF YOU’VE ALREADY DECIDED JIM DUFFY IS A CHARACTER, YOU’RE PROBABLY RIGHT!)
Occasionally, characters appear amongst us. We nearly always stop and drink in the scenes and story lines they create because of their very oddnesses. And we may even come to treasure these individuals because they help us see the world in useful and/or intriguing ways outside the boundaries of normality. Or we may not. We [...]
