#thought-leadership

  • Wanted to become an alternative ‘organisation’ but with carbon copy aspirations and game-plans to the traditional enterprises of the world. So I left them.
  • Tried to set up my own alternative community-based enterprise. But people didn’t want to play actively like that and many were happy it was a cosy echo-chamber of like-minded types.
  • Were alternative enterprises but impossible to get into; with their own quirky systems and ways (including even their own internal ‘currency’ which was ‘spent’ by each other but worthless anywhere else).
  • Were networks and collections that eventually became playthings for the founders whose egos ballooned in the adulation adorned on them by the group members.
  • And large-scale networks which were so chaotic once the initial buzz dissipated somewhat, their lack of doing ultimately led to their de-magnetism and they withered and died.
  1. The thinking or thought-leadership isn’t powerful enough to actually entice people to act;
  2. It is about things that are very complex and people lose interest because they can’t see what they should or could do to advance the thought-leadership into action.
