The Achuar Dream Culture and My Mother’s Death Process

Sunset in the Jungle

It was my second week living in the Ecuadorian Amazon. I travelled by a 4-person Cessna 40 minutes into the first community, and then another 30-minute jungle flight into a second community.

Five Good Ideas

We are in an era of tremendous change, where everything is being disrupted: governments, institutions, personal lives and the workplace. Innovation expert John Seely Brown calls it the Cambrian Moment. Things are thrown up but they eventually settle down. It is during that time of settling when small moves -- smartly and intentionally made -- can make a big difference. Hamlin Grange believes this is the Cambrian Moment of diversity and inclusion. We need to rethink our positions and attitudes about old concepts and approaches to create more inclusive workplaces, livable and workable cities and productive and relevant institutions. It's a time when we need to stop asking old questions to new audiences. Leaders must be more inclusive, individuals must get out of their comfort zones, and we all must become more interculturally competent. Five Good Ideas 1. Take an integrated approach to diversity and inclusion 2. Become more interculturally competent 3. Culture trumps strategy 4. Nurture Tempered Radicals 5. Lean into your discomforts
