thanks for dropping a line. I am happy to hear so many lively remarks on the things “leadership” from you. I will pick on the most general one: if one sees from close up how poor those leadership skills sometimes are, even when they are according to the book on the surface, than it is no wander we were lead into such a mess in which our economies are now. Instead of focusing on broad interest and change management we were lead into short term shareholders and even individual interest directions. Substituting corruption for competence in so many economies also brought poor results. Defending vested interests is one of the worse things one can do in the times when generating and facilitating change should be a priority. Of course I agree that there is a lot of growth potential for coaching and leadership training.
On the ADR side, one development I would like to mention is that I am teaching now Conflict management and Negotiations at the American College of Management and Technology in Dubrovnik, a Rochester Institute of Technology school, as an adjunct professor. I never thought it will be Prof. Vukmir, due to the ADR involvement! I am listening to a lot of music, a lot of Sixties and Seventies plus contemporary stuff, somewhat less jazz this year. I also wish you have a great 2012 and I hope to see you soon.
Best regards, Mladen
