Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk recently made headlines after giving his employees a unique piece of advice to improve productivity: “Walk out of a meeting or drop off a call as soon as it becomes obvious you aren’t adding value. It is not rude to leave, it is rude to make someone stay and waste their time.” Musk’s comments raised eyebrows – but the billionaire has a point. Modern corporate culture is beset with inefficiency, often with damaging consequences. Poor company culture presents itself in...

Without realizing it, people constantly provide companies insights into their beliefs, behaviors, and identities through their online activities. Digital footprints are built with billions of online clicks. They reveal aspects of our personal lives, which are collected, packaged, and sold to companies that want to better understand their markets, influence their consumers, and increase their profits. Political organizations are no different. The pressure for election victory requires campaigns to explore every competitive advantage. Campaign teams are just starting to realize the power of data, but have...

Over the past six months, media outlets have been flooded by allegations of sexual misconduct. Men in nearly every sector, from government to entertainment, banking to journalism, and sports to charity, have been accused of harassment or abuse.

Immediately after the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke, thousands of women across the country stepped forward and spoke...

On July 1st, 2018, Mexican citizens will head to the polls. Expect chaos!

In our last blog about “Fake Experts” we examined “social influencers” who peddle their largely uninformed opinions as expert advice to thousands of followers for their own personal gain – often with serious consequences. Now we’re taking on a more traditional brand of “experts” – academics, journalists, former politicians, and retired military officials. We assume these individuals have something special to offer, given their popularity, experiences and credentials. Some of these traditional experts do have real experience and knowledge, however, their advice is often accepted as...

In the world of fake news and disinformation, everyone is a self-proclaimed expert. Popularity and self-promotion have replaced knowledge and experience as indicators of expertise. As a result, people peddle their personal opinions as expert advice in all areas, from foreign policy and finance to sports, beauty, and entertainment. We can’t deny it: social media has made the fake news and disinformation problem significantly worse. Sites like LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter, are great at making voices heard – but lack a filter for distinguishing...
