    ArticlePower and Values: Confessions of a Former Smoker

    My interest in the intersection of people in positions to impact the world through their decisions and the values they use to make decisions is rooted in my own personal history as a former smoker.   As I was growing up cigarette smoking was an integral part of the American culture.  As I look back even to the pop-culture... more...

    My interest in the intersection of people in positions to impact the world through their decisions and the values they use to make decisions is rooted in my own personal history as a former smoker.

    ArticleNative Americans and 9/11

    Last night at the American Indian Cultural House, I had an opportunity to experience a profoundly symbolic expression of hope and healing.

    ArticleWhat Would Jesus Cut

    “What would Jesus cut?” is the title of an op-ed piece in the Washington Post on Friday, August 4, by Michael Gerson.  It seems to be prompted by the advocacy campaigns of two different coalitions, the “Circle of Protection”, which is a broad group of Christian organizations, including the Reformed Church in... more...

    ArticleWhat Would Your Ribbon Say?

    In a few short weeks, people everywhere will commemorate the tenth anniversary of September 11, 2001.

    ArticleThe Power of Leverage & The Limits of Technology

    The opinion pages of newspapers and the blogosphere are awash in analysis and reactions to what just happened in America, economically and politically. Everyone from Secretary Geithner himself, George Will, Paul Krugman, Roger (No Relation) Simon of Politico and everyone else, it seems, has something to say. I have been trying to think... more...

    ArticleYou have to be carefully taught

    "You've got to be perfectly taught" are lyrics in a song from the movie and musical South Pacific. These words refer to the fact that children must be taught to hate, distrust and fear another. It is not an instinct that they adapt on their own, they learn this behavior most often from an adult, often from a parent or other... more...

    ArticleIraqi Interpreters and Artists: Endangered...

    With the looming withdrawal of all American forces from Iraq by the end of this year, the political indecision of the Iraqi government to request the presence of a residual U.S. force will put the lives of many Iraqis at risk. If the Iraqi government asks Americans to stay, it will put them at odds with a large segment of Iraqis who view... more...

    I have come to know and admire my friend Carol Hexner, who is a very active and key member of the Values and Leadership Roundtable. An extremely talented executive coach, Carol is also a person of deep inner faith and consciousness.  She has become a valued colleague and mentor to me in our work at Intersections on Power and Values... more...

    As we begin the summer, I am particularly excited at how different religious communities are adapting to the changing times in their efforts to advocate for a greater understanding of all people and peace in the world. Just yesterday from Vatican City, His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI tweeted the launch of the Holy See’s information... more...
