An Innovative Way to Improve Behavior

By Josh Linkner
Early education in high-risk urban areas is a complex and seemingly overwhelming challenge. Often dubbed the "school to prison pipeline," kids in troubled classrooms with negative peer influences and little family support too often end up incarcerated or repeating the cycle of poverty.

Typically, when young kids get in trouble, they are sent to detention where they ...

Leadership Lessons from the FIFA 2019 World Cup

By Ivan Joseph
I must admit it is with mixed emotions that I have been watching the FIFA Women's World Cup. After getting knocked at the CONCACAF Qualifiers last June, it is hard not to be a little envious of the teams that made it there and feel like we should have been there.

Daily Inspiration: "It's your future. Take it into your own hands!"

By Jim Carroll
"It's your future. Take it into your own hands!" - Futurist Jim Carroll It's your future. No one is going to hand it to you on a silver platter. You've got to figure it out and direct how it will unfold. That means taking personal responsibility and ownership for the decisions that you'll make along the way.

Today’s CTO: The Chief Transformation Officer- Daniel Burrus

By Daniel Burrus
In the past, I suggested that the role of the CIO needs to shift from that of a Chief Information Officer to a Chief Innovation Officer, largely due to the rapid, multiple technology-driven transformations that are always occurring. But just as the CIO's role needs to change, so too does the CTO's role-from Chief Technology Officer to Chief Transformation Officer. This shift is necessary in order to maintain and elevate the position's relevance within the organization. There ...
