Five Archetypes of Organisations

An alternative way to think about organisations and their archetypes depends on the way the core resources are allocated, i.e. internally or externally. There are five archetypes of organisations that can be identified if we classify them based on the resource consumption and utilisation pattern viewpoint.

L: Loss and Capacity for Change

It seems unthinkable to link loss and change. But it is one of those peculiar paradoxes we reflect on when we undergo our dark night of the soul and are scathed. Yet somehow, somehow, an emergence from it can happen if we are fortunate, bearing our wounds and scathing with fortitude, courage, forbearance –

Fear of Women Without Guilt

We are in the midst of a transition. The old patriarchal world, which I call analog, is a world in which Newton mechanics have prevailed, through the invention of fire, and the first and second industrial revolutions. In this old world, nations were constructed within the framework of social orders that were subjugated by religions and diverse ideologies.
Except for the matriarchal order, which is buried in the depths of history, all the old world orders have one common factor: men, who compose half of the world’s population, do not share power with women, who make up the other half of the world. Women have been governed through being silenced, oppressed and forced into passivity. This treatment, in spite of some exceptions, has never changed. I wonder why it is so.

Election 2016: Is There an Adult in the Room?

“Here we follow, quite naturally, the principle of non-resistance to all superior forces, up to a certain individual limit, beyond which the most peaceful citizen becomes a bloody revolutionary.”

Second Lieutenant Robert M. Christian, Jr., USMC: A Very Personal Sacrifice

Most think of a sacrifice in wartime as something heroic on the field of battle. Bob Christian died on the field of battle on April 11, 1969, but his sacrifice for me came months earlier, when we were both in training as Infantry Officers at The Basic School of the United States Marine Corps. Every Marine Ground Officer is an Infantry Officer first, so every newly minted Second Lieutenant attends The Basic School to learn the tools of the warrior’s trade.

No one can say why a man sacrifices his life for another. At the time it didn’t seem that was happening, but in the fullness of time I have come to see it that way. As a result of his sacrifice, we have three daughters and seven grandchildren. From my way of thinking, all of us, and all of our progeny forever after, owe our lives to 2nd Lieutenant Robert M. Christian, Jr., USMC.

“Everybody Wants Some”: Lesser Linklater

There is safety from the responsibility and the harsher realities of adulthood. But it robs us of seeing deeper into that fertile period between childhood and adulthood. I understand that “everybody wants some” . . . and what I want is to see beneath and beyond this façade.

“Marguerite”: Bad Singer, Great Movie!

Marguerite is director Xavier Giannoli’s exquisite film tribute to the strange, wonderful spirit of would be diva Florence Foster Jenkins. The film is a broad, but nuanced, direct but complex study of character, passion and culture.

Eye in the Sky: An Eye for an Eye

The contrast between the well-appointed board rooms and the dusty slums controlled by Al-Shabaab reminds us that when geopolitical imbalance reaches a certain level, life and death decisions can be made as easily in one venue as another.
