On July 1st, 2018, Mexican citizens will head to the polls. Expect chaos! Mexico’s last two Presidential elections were beset by irregularities, ballot tampering, and voter intimidation – and this one is unlikely to be much different. At stake is the presidency, the entire federal Senate and Chamber of Deputies, nine governorships, and hundreds of state and municipal seats. “In total, more than 3,000 elected positions are up for grabs, making the 2018 election unprecedented in its scope and impact on Mexico’s political landscape.” Three months...

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.

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. The importance of a healthy corporate culture is no secret among executives. Companies with highly developed corporate cultures spend, on average, $350 million less annually fixing embarrassing mistakes and playing public...

“Guatemala’s upcoming Attorney General Appointment will be a defining moment for the future of the country.” Despite enormous strides towards democracy in the past few decades, Guatemala’s corrupt politicians and tainted judiciary are eroding democratic institutions and weakening rule of law, while ordinary citizens, eager for better lives and greater justice, are denied any voice. Meanwhile, endemic corruption and impunity perpetuate Guatemala’s economic stagnation, which further increases social tensions and ultimately leads to greater instability. The appointment of Guatemala’s new Attorney General, which will occur in May...
