RSA Animate: Dan Airely - The Truth About Dishonesty

A new RSA Animate, this one built on Dan Airely's RSA talk on "the truth about dishonesty."

RSA Animate: Dan Airely - The Truth About Dishonesty

Are you more honest than a banker? Under what circumstances would you lie, or cheat, and what effect does your deception have on society at large? Dan Ariely, one of the world's leading voices on human motivation and behaviour is the latest big thinker to get the RSA Animate treatment.

Taken from a lecture given at the RSA in July 2012 . Watch the longer talk here.

**'The Olympics offered us a glimpse of the integral wisdom of ‘Clumsy’ leadership' (article)**

Hi William,

OK, this is not about the RSA's latest RSAnimate, but about the RSA Chief Executive's Annual Lecture on Wednesday - which is very relevant for integral folks. (I'd love to hear your thoughts one what I have written).

I've written a long online post titled 'The Olympics offered us a glimpse of the integral wisdom of ‘Clumsy’ leadership - but how can we turn it from a 1% rarity into a commonplace inspiration?'

It's here:

I thought you might find it interesting. Feel free to comment :-)

As you'll notice, it's really an unofficial/personal response to Wednesday's well-received annual lecture by the Chief Executive of the Royal Society of Arts, Matthew Taylor, in London (where I now work).

I focused on Cultural Theory, as that was his focus - but brought in Robert Kegan's work in particular, as Matthew Taylor seems particularly receptive to that, unlike many other developmental models. It's also striking how similarly the Cultural Theory folks and the Spiral Dynamics folks often sound...

I suppose I'm really just trying to tell Matthew Taylor, if you're serious that 'Clumsy' (integral?) leadership is the key to solving the world's most pressing 'Wicked' problems - then how are we going to increase the number of post-conventional leaders out in the world, how are you going to encourage post-conventional practice (even inside your own organisation

Yes, I know the title's too long, the article's too long etc - but I didn't have enough time to write something short... ;-)

I'd love to hear any feedback you may have.
