Moral Leadership

I am tremendously fascinated by how decisions are made, and how they impact the decision maker themselves, other people, and organisations. Too often we judge a decision by the immediate results -  i.e. did it work? - rather than considering the merits of the decision itself and the wider outcomes. I believe that it is possible to act morally and achieve excellent outcomes for a business/organisation,  that moral leadership is habitual and thus can be trained and nurtured, and that the…

#Cyberpeacefare #Dwight Eisenhower Quote

"The peace we seek is nothing less than the fulfillment of our whole faith among ourselves and in our dealings with others.  This signifies more than the stilling of guns, easing the sorrow of war. More than an escape from death, it is a way of life.  More than a haven for the weary,it is the hope for the brave." 

(Need faith in what unites us all: love and respect - common aspirations - pursuit of happiness - common good…

Gene Editing Governance & Dr. He Jiankui, with Jeffrey Kahn

Jeffrey Kahn, director of the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute for Bioethics, discusses the many governance issues connected to gene editing. Plus, he gives a first-hand account of an historic conference in Hong Kong last year in which Dr. He Jiankui shared his research on the birth of the world's first germline genetically engineered babies. What's the future of the governance of this emerging technology?

Trump is the Symptom, Not the Problem

Astute observers of U.S. foreign policy have been making the case, as we move into the 2020 elections, not to see the interruptions in the flow of U.S. foreign policy solely as a result of the personality and foibles of the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, writes Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev. Ian Bremmer and Colin Dueck expand on this thought.

Gene Editing: Overview, Ethics, & the Near Future, with Robert Klitzman

In the first in a series of podcasts on gene editing, Columbia's Dr. Robert Klitzman provides an overview of the technology, ethical and governance issues, and where it could all go in the near future. Plus he explains why the birth of genetically engineered twins in China last year was a "seismic" event. How could gene editing lead to more inequality? What could be some of unintended consequences?
