“Leadership will be faced with hunter gatherer mentality coupled with our ability to control our environment through technologies that we generally don’t have the ability to comprehend as a population. ”

 

“Invest in people who invest in themselves and you don’t have to worry about if your investment is going to be returned to you.

Invest in people with a reward to get them to do something you want and they will learn to withhold that behavior until you reward them.

Invest in people because you want them to feel gratitude, and you will engender resentment and a sense of obligation.”
