Alec Baldwin channeled an out of his depth Donald Trump on his post-election return to “ Saturday Night Live .” The actor as the President-elect met with Kate McKinnon playing his bewildered campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, a military chief and an unemployed coal worker excited about Trump’s promises of getting his job back for the skit. But each time they asked the future POTUS a question, he really didn’t know how to respond.

Life is My Writing Prompt

17Nov

Before I launched my 365-Day writing project , I came up with a 13-page (10 point font, 1.5-spaced) list of ideas. In the early days of the project, this numbered list guided me; I’d even used the strikethrough feature to cross out the topics I wrote about. As the year progressed and the calendar pages flipped faster than the leaves fell off the trees, I couldn’t keep up with the old stories on the list because new narratives were consistently presenting themselves for write-ups It was easier to write about something which happened today than to dig deep into my subconscious to recall a story from childhood or adolescence; something which helped define me, shape me, or gave me membership into a “life club.” Whatever crazy shit happens to us as humans, the “life club” concept is designed to help us feel like we’re not alone; we can always find someone who can relate, no matter how ludicrous our situation or experience may seem

“All men of sense,” one of America’s most imaginative founding fathers Alexander Hamilton once said, “will agree in the necessity of an energetic executive.” Rodrigo Duterte, the Philippines’ most popular mayor, was just elected to the presidency with the highest number of votes in the Southeast Asian country’s history. And his legions of supporters — who relish the provincial mayor’s off-the-cuff honesty and celebrate his unmatched bravado against the establishment — fervently believe that they may have elected not only the country’s first president from the southern island of Mindanao, but also, perhaps, its most energetic so far.

Echoing a line from his hit Broadway musical “Hamilton,” Lin-Manuel Miranda on Monday condemned presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s nativist ideology, reminding the graduating class of the University of Pennsylvania of the stories and contributions of immigrants to America. “In a year when politicians traffic in anti-immigrant rhetoric,” he said, “there is also a Broadway musical reminding us that a broke, orphan immigrant from the West Indies built our financial system, a story that reminds us that since the beginning of the great, unfinished symphony that is our American experiment, time and time again, immigrants get the job done.” More…

Twelve Keys to the Workplace of the Future

14Ago

by Doug Kirkpatrick As companies flatten hierarchy and the taxonomy of futurework expands, it seems clear that organizational effectiveness will necessarily depend, as always, on the choices of individuals. Individual effectiveness will ultimately dictate organizational results whether the governance system of choice is holacracy, teleocracy, sociocracy, workplace democracy, ROWE, agile management, horizontal management, self-management, wiki management, radical management, lattice management or any other approach. The workplace of the future will demand many individual competencies (effective communication, for example), but there are other crucial, and often less visible competencies that will impact one’s ability to navigate and perform well in a highly autonomous environment.
