GROPING OUR WAY TOWARD “DOLPHIN NORMAL”:  A PROCESS WE HUMANS IGNORE AT OUR LOSS AND MAYBE OUR PERIL

In my dolphinthinker-themed writings, I’ve sought to place a premium on taking care of the needs of our bodies, minds and spirits. Of taking care of our close-in communities and being good stewards of our shared world overall.
It’s a pretty tall order. That’s why the principles of dolphinthinking are intended to help equip those [...]

FROM DOLPHINTHINKER WATERS: A SPLENDIDLY SUPPORTIVE BOOK REVIEW, A BRAINMAP(r) REDOUBT ON THE HIGH PLAINS, THE IRISH POET WHO SWIMS LIKE A DOLPHIN

HOW DO YOU SPELL “FORTUITOUS”? G-A-R-F-I-N-K-E-L
Sometimes, really neat things just fall into your lap. This happy circumstance can happen to writers of books when their material strikes a ready nerve with a reader. That’s pretty much the story line for what I’m about to recount. A San Francisco-based marketing consultant, writing coach and former bureau [...]

BREAKING NEWS!
“UNDER30CEO” WEBZINE INTRODUCES DOLPHINTHINKING AND MAKING THE LEAP TO YOUNG EXECUTIVES!

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 [...]

TRUSTING MOST FORECASTERS
AND MOST FORECASTING TODAY IS LIKE BELIEVING IN THE TOOTH FAIRY

The dolphinthinker understands that humans sail highest and farthest under the flag of abundance even though, for many, scarcity is too often the transport du jour. For this reason alone, it has never more important to find out what isn’t working, fix what is broken and opt for the solutions, conditions, synergies and alliances that [...]

THIS WORLD-CLASS DUST-UP IN ECONOMICS IS A CLASSIC ‘ABUNDANCE VERSUS SCARCITY’ CASE STUDY. NOT TO MENTION A SOBERING WINDOW ON BRAIN BIAS

Ask admirers of the dolphin strategy what they like about it best, and a lot of folks will say its views on abundance versus scarcity.
About how—or so many of these readers will describe it—this view of things characterizes dolphinthinkers as always championing abundance and sharkthinkers (carpthinkers, too) as always promoting scarcity.
I’d agree that this [...]

THE BIRTH OF A METAPHOR:
HOW THE DOLPHIN AND ITS SISTER PSYCHOLOGICAL CONCEPTS
HAPPENED TO SHOW UP

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 [...]

IF YOU’VE GOT A DOLPHIN SMILE AND A DOLPHIN IDEA, WITH A LITTLE DOLPHIN ENTERPRISE, YOU CAN GET SOME GOOD MEDIA EXPOSURE

You can see how it’s done if you’ll go here. One of our favorite dolphinthinkers, Carlos Salum, founder of Salum International Resources (SIR), a management consulting firm based in Huntersville, NC, has a knack for providing authoritative answers to questions from reporters. Do it once and you’ll likely get to do it again. Carlos has [...]

DOLPHINTHINKERS LEAVE CLUES.
HERE’S A RUNDOWN IN CASE YOU THINK YOU SEE ONE SWIMMING TOWARD YOU OR STARING BACK AT YOU IN THE MIRROR

Not many commentators, and certainly not the author of LEAP!, would argue that actor Harrison Ford’s revered “Indiana Jones” character is a great role model for dolphin-thinking traits.
But who could forget that landmark scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark when Marion has been captured by the Nazis and Indy is rushing to save [...]
