In-Sites

The purpose of this page is to provide a list of websites that support the mission of this blog site.  Actually, I don’t remember stating a mission for this blog.

12 Manage contains summaries of just about any management method or model you can think of, and probably many you couldn’t think of.  So next time you’re in a conversation and someone drops a term that you have never heard of,  go to 12Manage.

ChangingMinds.org contains over 5,000 pages of information.  They promote themselves as the largest site in the world on all aspects of how we change what others think, believe, feel and do.  While the  tag-line feels a bit manipulative to me, I think it’s a good site to help understand why and how others think, believe, feel and do.

The Management Innovation Exchange (MIX) is a relatively new site “that is an open innovation project aimed at reinventing management for the 21st century. The premise: while “modern” management is one of humankind’s most important inventions, it is now a mature technology that must be reinvented for a new age.”  The folks leading the conversations include some of the world’s most celebrated management thinkers and progressive practitioners such as Gary Hamel, John Mackey,

If you need some innovation, cross pollination inspiration, PhysOrg is a news site that includes the latest developments in science and technology.  Scan a few of the articles and see what connections you can make to your own profession.  Even the sciences have some of their own “connect effects” such as Secrets of water bug wings shed light on heart beats.

The Parody Motivator Generator One of my favorite in-sites has been Despair.com.  It had its origins as a parody site focusing on demotivation. While it has evolved into primarily a merchandising site, at least for now, it still offers a free service that enables you to create your our motivational or inciteful posters.   If you really like your creation, for a reasonable price, they will professionally print it for you .  Check it out and give it a try. I have no affiliate relationship with them.

I believe the name of this site is Time Life Navigation, but I’m not sure.  I’m also not quite sure how to describe it or the experience of navigating it.  It’s sort of like traveling inside someone’s brain, following apparently random neural pathways. It must have some form of order though because someone created it. It contains a wealth of information, including lessons from Peter Drucker and Edward de Bono.
