A dandy on tap as we visit with best selling author Kona Lowell to dscuss collectivism vs. individualism. Feel free to join the conversation as all perspectives are welcomed, REALLY!
You've heard the expressions "it's lonely at the top," or "I don't want to go if they can't all come with me," or "not caring what they think of me seems impossible." But think of it this way friends, only you can think your thoughts, feel your emotions and look at things through your own prespective. No one else can create your reality for you. When you realize this, and begin to deliberately create your reality by constructing your thoughts toward the fun, abundant, exciting, free life, then you are living the joyfilled life you intended.
Now more than ever, America needs more open and inclusive conversations about the stereotypes on police protection, police brutality, crime, civil liberties, public safety, and social justice in the context of race.
After many years of dissecting the driving factors on the issue of fragmentation and cohesion in American society, many of the same tragedies of error we've seen for years on race controversies continues to pervades the society. Race discussions, debate on race, or even race analysis are the so called inequality taboo topic of conversation in America. Silence on the issue of race only increases suspicions and erratic responses.
We are indeed in a delicate time.
In any democracy, the government belongs to the people, and the police, which exist within the executive branch – enforcing the law, essentially serve as a buffer of balance between individuals and between people -- maintaining law, order, safety and most importantly peace. If a police error results in a tragedy, the police should be the first to demonstrate contrition, not defense of erratic positions. Otherwise, the society is at risk of an increasing political totalitarianism. It is unimaginable for any cultural group to live inequitably compared to the rest of its pairs in the same country, especially one that promises individualism, equal rights before the law, and the four freedoms. And just as one group should not be a burden to another, so should none be sustained at the expense of the other.

I'm not a PHD! All I want is a chance to be a successful and happy musician. I think I have a great opportunity and I feel I can be whatever I want in America. I appreciate the fact that there are programs that will help me and others when we're down on our luck,(a lot of times due to our own decisions in life). I agree there is racism and prejudice etc. But that is not my number 1 obstacle. Capitalism says, hey create your opportunity, I'm an individual, I can be a star! Work hard, be flexible, win some battles, lose some battles! I can make it! Communism says we're all one, collectively we are whatever the collective or state says we are.I'm sure there's still racism and prejudice and only the state and who runs the state is the boss. Socialism is similar in practice if not the same idea. As I said, I'm just a regular guy, stimulating the thought process. So let's listen to a song and talk about it.

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, November 12, 2014, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT).
Last week we talked about productivity and e-mail excellence, and this week we’re going to talk about how global megatrends impact engagement strategy.
For better or for worse, mind you. Consider the fact that the world is undergoing unprecedented change, driven by six global megatrends: Individualism, Digitization, Technological Convergence, Demographic Change, Globalization 2.0, and the Environmental Crisis.
And while economies around the world continue to bounce back from the financial crisis, millions of people are thinking about their next career moves. Not just thinking either — Hay Group research forecasts that almost a quarter of employees worldwide will change jobs by 2018.
These megatrends come with profound implications for how companies will be organized and led. But if leaders don’t adjust their approaches to employee engagement now, they will be unable to attract and retain talent through these major shifts.
Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about how global megatrends impact engagement strategy with this week’s guest: Mark Royal, Senior Principal at Hay Group who organizations design and implement employee engagement strategies.
Thank you to our sponsors and partners: SAP/SuccessFactors, Dice, RIVS, GreatRated! of Great Place to Work, IBM Smarter Workforce, CareerBuilder, PeopleFluent, Fisher Vista and HRmarketer Insight.
