5 Things People Must Change About The Way They Lead

Written by Gianfranco D'Aversa.

Leadership is about sharing, giving – making those around you better. Leadership is about uniting and inspiring teams to optimally perform. Leadership is caring about a societal cause that the business can influence. This is what most businesses refer to as corporate social responsibility. Leadership is indeed a social responsibility, yet many people are out of touch with how to be an effective leader. Many people believe that because they carry an important title or have tenure within the organization, others will automatically follow them.

Why We Need to Reform Education Now

Written by Gianfranco D'Aversa.

What should America do about its disastrous high school dropout rate? That's the focus of TEDTalks Education, the first ever TED/PBS television special, hosted by John Legend, the award-winning musician. The program looks not only at what's going wrong in high schools, but how to put it right. As it happens, the solution is not a mystery; but putting it into practice will involve a major shift in current policies. In 1970, the U.S. had the highest rates of high school graduation in the world, now it has one of the lowest. According to the OECD, the overall U.S. graduation rate is now around 75 percent, which puts America 23rd out of 28 countries surveyed.
