WikiLeaks Firestorm – a different perspective…

WikiLeaks – firestorm of the week. Our hero, Nicholas Kristof, reminds us to view crisis situations from various perspectives. Part of the DSRP metacognition training I went through last month…

Have a happy weekend everyone – Martin Fox with the Center for Global Leadership – accelerating the global ripple.

The most common reaction I get from foreigners about the WikiLeaks cables is: “Wow — your diplomats are smarter than they look!” Sure, the leaks are embarrassing, but they also reveal consistently shrewd analysis. And although clientitis is always a problem in the State Dept, it seems less of an issue than it has been in the past. So, congrats to State on the revelation that it’s pretty good at what it does!
