Welcome to emotionalINTELLIGENCE, a collection of observations at the intersection of business innovation, culture, finance, leadership and political economy. I have considered writing on these topics for some time. Thanks to creative new thinking about communication, design, borders and business models, old boundaries are dissolving. Leaders in corporations, non-profits, civic and global communities recognize that their organizations can be meaningfully improved by learning from others' successes and cooperating across sectors. People are talking more. Exciting products, programs, organizations and ways of doing business are emerging as a result.

I am powerfully optimistic about these changes. A few publications, news shows, commentators and websites focus on discussion of the positive trends. But too many continue to practice dumbing down the news, rehashing problems over and over and over again. emotionalINTELLIGENCE is my answer to those old-school commentators.

You can learn more about me here. I look forward to getting to know you.
