I was privileged to hear Don Tapscott speak some years ago in London – and this TED talk he delivered last year is truly inspiring. The question I hear most organisations ask today is around how to engage and motivate young people, who quite clearly think differently (their neural pathways are different) to us oldies! This video; Four Principles for the open world, is well worth the almost 18 minutes of time well spent… And if this inspires you, his e-book Radical Openness, co-authored with Anthony Williams will certainly further your knowledge and insight.

About Radical Openness: “All over the world, the way people connect and collaborate is undergoing an astonishing transformation as a result of one idea: radical openness. Smart organizations are shunning their old, secretive practices and embracing transparency, widely sharing intellectual property and collaborating on an astronomical scale. And movements for freedom and justice are exploding everywhere as organizations like Wikileaks spread information faster than ever before.
In their compelling new book Radical Openness: Four Unexpected Principles for Success, Don Tapscott and Anthony Williams show how this revolutionary new philosophy is affecting every facet of our society, from the way we do business to whom we choose to govern us.
But while radical openness promises many exciting transformations, it also comes with new risks and responsibilities. Tapscott and Williams ask: How much information should we share and with whom? And what are the consequences of disclosing the intimate, unvarnished details of our professional and personal lives?”
