Looking forward to the new book, Bob! The first book gave me license to talk about assholes in my classes - I can show my students it's a real technical term that has to do with how people abuse others with the use of power. Bet this would make a great TEDx talk. If interested, know you have an open invitation to our next TEDxUniversityofNevada on Jan 27, 2018. We now have a live audience approaching 1500 and our videos are reaching millions with ideas worth spreading.
This would make a great TEDx talk....

Just FYI, Ed, Colin has a management degree from my department at The University of Nevada. I never had him in class, but my colleagues speak extremely highly of him.

Love it, Bob. Wish we could get B-school deans to think this way.
Great stuff, Ed. The FAE is powerful and pervasive. Even when you understand what it is, it's hard to avoid falling victim to this bias. On your point about responsibility - I teach my students to learn to see the systemic forces that shape their behavior and the behavior of those around them and assume responsibility for changing them. As Senge stated, there is no one to blame, but don't wait for others or permission to assume responsibility for improving crappy systems (via another Stanford guy, Bob Sutton).
Hi Ed, once again great advice. I'm not a coach, nor have I ever been coached, but it's something I am interested in. thanks, Bret

Love trust, Ed. You are right on that the most important thing people look for when deciding how trustworthy we are is our motive, intentions. I've always considered trust more of an attitude than an emotion. As an attitude, it has an affective component, but the cognitive and behavioral intention aspects are just as important. Good stuff.

Excellent, Ed. When I am home, I rarely talk about work - good or bad. I have a different role at home, and to do that role well requires me to step out of the other one. Same is true at work. Oddly enough, I think struggles away from work affect my work more than the other way around. I take that as a sign that my roles outside of work take priority in my life.
