Quality feedback which empowers positive performance improvements should consist of six elements: 1) The positive aspects of the employee’s performance and the degree to which they (he/she) have made progress in their areas of weakness; 2) The areas of their performance that need improvement; 3) Advice and recommendations on how the worker can improve their performance; 4) The answering of...  Read More

The willingness to make very difficult and risky decisions, when necessary, is one thing which distinguishes leaders from managers. This willingness became readily apparent in the years preceding World War II and in the “blood, sweat, and tears” shed in Britain during the War years. Neville Chamberlain served as Britain’s Prime Minister 1937-1940 and was much more of a national manager than he...  Read More

People in any organization most especially resist change when it is brought about precipitously at the last minute without giving employees the opportunity to give their input concerning the change. This has quite often been the case with large corporations, over the past few years, who have laid people off, with little or no notice, which has proved devastating to not only those laid off but...  Read More

Some 35-years ago the professorial missionary couple, Drs. Tom and Sue Brewster, of the U.S. Center for World Mission, in Pasadena, wrote a highly practical book entitled Language Acquisition Made Practical , or LAMP, which argues that the effective learning of a second or foreign language is primarily a social rather than an academic function. While not denying that formal language training, in...  Read More

(Note--Dave Morse lived for about a year in Liberia as a younger man) Liberia Remains Deeply Divided Though it has changed somewhat over the years, Liberia has been deeply divided between Americo-Liberians who have traditionally been the ruling class and indigenous Liberians who have historically been subservient to Americo-Liberians and have served as the country's laboring class....  Read More

In reality, there’s no such thing as a one-person team as no matter how gifted, creative, and diligent a person may be they (he/she) do not have all the answers and they have areas of weakness and knowledge which only other people on a team can compensate for and complement with strengths in those areas of weakness. While it is true that there are people who have consummate athletic ability or...  Read More

The generous giving of our time, talent, or money at any time would do much to unshrivel the penury of our soul and could prove transformational to the lives of others in ways that we may not be able to imagine. An hour or two a week spent in assisting a child who struggles with reading could give him or her an insatiable appetite for learning that could change their (his or her) life forever....  Read More

Presidential use of power and influence has manifested itself in many ways during the course of U.S. history. Some presidents have shown consummate attention to detail whereas others have exercised a much more panoramic or macroscopic style of leadership. Jimmy Carter, for example, has a very keen mind but became overly focused on the minutiae of the Presidency and, unfortunately, became a...  Read More

BestThinking.com to Shut Down Permanently on December 31, 2017

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at support@thinkermedia.com only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
