“I Could See So Far Because……

I stood on the shoulders of giants.”   – Isaac Newton

This week the Greater Iowa City Area Chamber of Commerce kicks of its 22nrd year of their Community Leadership Program.

One of the operating assumptions of this year long program is that “Knowing is pre-eminent.” To become a leader you need to be well informed, to stand on the shoulders of others’ knowledge, to perceive the greater pespective.  Hence a multiple day program that examines the major facets of the greater community.

Fundamental to this understanding is an awareness of how the workplace and workers are changing.  It is clear that all advanced societies are moving work away from manual to mental, the “knowledge worker” Drucker described so cogently.  Understanding how to manage and motivate the contemporary worker is an interesting challenge.

Beyond Luck is now an e-book on Amazon.  At $6.95 it’s a great deal.
