Because of this widespread transparency, processes and approaches to project management, innovation, and product development are becoming more and more universal, both interdepartmentally and regionally.

Not literally, of course. That would be ridiculous. But if you’re like most people, you’re wearing mental blinders that limit your ability to think, create and problem solve effectively. Your field of vision has been narrowed. You’ve lost sight of the big picture. Here’s the amazing part:…

The feedback model I’ve used over the years is called the SBI Feedback Model.  SBI stands for “Situation – Behavior – Impact”.  This model allows you to give feedback in a way that allows others to hear you more clearly.  Giving feedback does not have to be an emotionally charged experience.  It can be given in a calm, constructive manner. To deliver feedback effectively, use the following mindmap…

It's interesting because it shows the creative process of a great writer.

I did read ‘Look Homeward Angel,’ but somehow I recall the evocative title of his other book, something I always remember for some reason since living abroad for the past 12 years.  Somehow the phrase evokes meaning;  one cannot go back to a previous life after being away for some time.  There is a passage in Wikipedia from the novel that evokes that feeling:"You can't go back home to your family, back home to your childhood ... back home to a young man's dreams of glory and…
