"Sustainable Strategy" - Big Ideas - Changing the World Today - What is Wisdom? - Colin Coyne

My greatest take away from this presentation was this equation presented on a slide.

I have never seen such a clear understanding of Wisdom.

This explains why we have such great synergy when we are able to work in groups in a positive, honest, and objective way.

So simple! So awesome! So powerful! ...

It seems if everyone understood this, and practiced it, we could fix most problems of the world, in a better way... Monte Hines
