Trump Effect. Time Magazine's Person of the Year, an old dying influence measure if there ever was one, will be announced this morning. It has to be President-Elect Trump, right? Who else could it be? Your call, but for house money, it could easily be a hybrid figure of all races, genders and titles named Sir/Madame Disruption. If you haven't met this person, you will sometime.
Truth remains stranger than fiction. With due respect to great journalists, such as David Ignatius, https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/global-opinions/in-todays-world-the-truth-is-losing/2016/11/29/3f685cd2-b680-11e6-b8df-600bd9d38a02_story.html?utm_term=.b8df407442a9&wpisrc=nl_pdrainbow&wpmm=1, what is post-truth, or what so many are writing and talking about since the election?
At a more down here on Earth level, who can we believe anymore? Government? No. Monolithic Media? No. You? Maybe. Me? Sure, why not? Google? Facebook? Uh, if you answered the latter, then please sit down and gather your own thoughts -- should any still exist.
Dead broke. Media and pollsters proved on Election Night that the election industrial complex is dead broke, but similar to previous cycles, what's emerged remains a hodge podge mess of stuff that's discovered on-line now more than ever. Despite this confusing emerging model, leaders are supposed to initiate truth so please spend some time forming a better process in your sphere of influence. Initiating truth may be the new George Patton mandate: Lead, follow or get out of the way. First step: Know the truth, or at least be committed to searching.
