"Power of Pull" Ch 7 and Wrap-Up

Thanks again to Don Bolen and Steve Maul for the questions, and to everyone who participated in this book chat. I thought we had a volunteer to lead the next one but appear to have been wrong about that. These tend to pop up in serendipitous ways when we have a confluence of facilitator and book interest, so stay tuned for news of future chats.  

Remember to visit to participate. Click the 'hoots' tab to see all the questions.

Q19  (Chapter 7) How do you address the "not invented here" mindset? How can you "foster a learning disposition?" loc 3749

QWrap1 (let's abbreviate QW1) We've heard few dissenting voices in this chat. Any criticisms/concerns about the ideas we've seen? 

QWrap2 (QW2) What elements of push in your world do you find hardest to overcome? Has book given you any ideas? (ex: continuing investment in knowledge stocks = constrains agility)

QWrap3  (QW3) What will you do do differently now? How can you live "Power of Pull" in your life/work? 

QWrap4 (QW4) Access/attraction/achievement: What skills do you/we need to build?
