The Mexican presidential election is set to take place this July and all signs point to a victory for veteran politician Andrés Manuel López Obrador. However, this election is not really one for Obrador to win—it is for the other candidates to lose. By using ineffective campaign techniques and strategies, opposition candidates and their parties are contributing to both Obrador's success and their own demise. With some quick action and modifications to their strategies, campaigns still have a chance to turn things around. The major political...

What do Uber, Wells Fargo, Ford, Fidelity, Volkswagen, and dozens of other companies around the globe have in common? They have all faced serious blow-back in recent months over organizational issues stemming from toxic corporate cultures that result in adverse media attention, negative public sentiment, online protests, ousted executives, reduced sales, and damaged company reputations.

It’s time for a new approach that emphasizes politicians’ willingness to “listen,” which aligns candidates and constituents. The political landscape has changed dramatically over the past decade. Communications technology has...

Companies need an advertising overhaul. One-way messaging, from companies to consumers, no longer sells. Online, television, radio, and print media advertisements are developed in vacuums, which often times result in marketing faux pas that incite significant backlash. Consumers want an interactive dialogue in today’s increasingly connected world fueled by social media and companies need an updated marketing approach to address consumer engagement challenges. The sharp rise in marketing failures proves that companies are out of touch with consumers. Pepsi’s #blacklivesmatter commercial, featuring Kendall Jenner, is one...

There is no single solution to stop “lone wolf” attacks. However, recent incidents in Texas and NYC and last year’s violence in Orlando and San Bernardino reveal important information about both the individual perpetrators and the paths that led to their rampage. Attackers are deranged individuals with deep-seated personal, political, or ideological grievances, who are driven towards violence and provide little or no warning before killing innocent people. The majority of lone wolf attacks are committed by U.S. citizens or immigrants who purchase weapons legally. These...
