In this talk, Simon zeroes in on an often overlooked aspect of leadership: safety.Simon recounts the story of an ambush and its powerful lesson. When Army Captain William Swenson and his men were under heavy fire in Afghanistan, it was all caught on camera. As Swenson is seen helping an injured soldier onto a helicopter, you see Swenson lean over and kiss the injured soldier’s forehead before running back into a battle.Build a Culture That Encourages SelflessnessWhy did he do this? Sinek’s first hypothesis was that the military somehow attracted selfless people. After further investigation, Sinek concluded it was the environment that elevated behavior. The culture and values of the organization were strong enough to encourage selflessness. continue reading »last_img read more


first_imgThe factory sentiment data shows how the virus is rippling through the region, disrupting supply chains and depressing demand. Travel restrictions are rampant, schools and businesses in pockets of the region are shuttered and governments are scrambling to provide stimulus to shore up their economies.China’s official PMI plunged in February to a record-low 35.7 from 50 at the start of the year, according to data released Saturday. The big decline signals a worse-than-expected first-quarter contraction, with Nomura Holdings Inc. economists led by Lu Ting projecting the economy shrank 2.5 percent in the first three months of the year from the previous period.Global markets have been roiled by virus fears, with equities and bond yields sliding on Monday as investors digested the PMI data. Japanese stocks opened 1.3 percent lower, and S&P 500 futures slumped over 1 percent, with a signal from the Federal Reserve Friday that it’s open to easing policy providing little comfort.Read also: Asian stock markets reverse losses on global policy stimulus hopes Asia’s factories took a tumble in February under the weight of the rapidly spreading coronavirus outbreak, with a severe plunge in activity in China driving down output across the region.South Korea and Japan, where confirmed cases of the virus have accelerated recently, showed sharp declines in production, according to purchasing manager surveys released by IHS Markit on Monday. South Korea’s PMI, a critical bellwether of global demand, dropped to a four-month low of 48.7 from 49.8 in January, while the Jibun Bank Japan index declined to 47.8, the lowest reading since May 2016.Taiwan dropped below 50, the dividing line between expansion and contraction, while Thailand and Malaysia stayed in that territory. Vietnam’s PMI fell to a more than six-year low of 49. Indonesia was a lone bright spot in the regional data, seeing its PMI gauge rise to 51.9, its first reading in expansion since June. Southeast Asia’s biggest economy has registered no official coronavirus cases amid concern that testing hasn’t been vigorous enough.Disruption to manufacturing has been evident across the region as companies take steps to stop the virus from spreading.A Hyundai Motor Co. plant in South Korea last week halted operations after a worker was confirmed to have been infected. Samsung Electronics Co. also temporarily stopped output at one its plants last month after an employee tested positive for the disease.China’s economy is gradually returning to work with activity likely running at 60 percent to 70 percent capacity last week, according to a Bloomberg Economics report, up from about 50 percent two weeks ago.South Korea has been particularly hard-hit over the past two weeks as virus cases surged above 3,500.The Bank of Korea refrained from cutting interest rates when it met last week, opting instead to extend inexpensive loans to small businesses and leaving it for the government to take broader action.South Korea’s manufacturers and exporters will likely remain under pressure, said Joe Hayes, an economist at IHS Markit.“Even if demand does recover, day-to-day operations are likely to suffer as firms seek alternative suppliers or operate below capacity until normality across supply chains is restored,” he said.Topics :last_img read more

first_img Published on September 19, 2014 at 12:30 am Contact Jacob: [email protected] | @Jacob_Klinger_ Facebook Twitter Google+ Maryland fits in with Florida State and Clemson in Chuck Bullough’s mind — in team speed.“Those are legitimate NFL-talent kind of guys,” the Syracuse defensive coordinator said.The athletic advantages SU’s defense used to win its first game, and dominated its second with, are gone. A week after the Orange (2-0) held an opponent to three points, parts of the SU defense see themselves as underdogs against the unranked Terrapins they’ll host at 12:30 p.m. in the Carrier Dome on Saturday. Syracuse has watched a Maryland (2-1) team that both makes and extends plays, scrambles assignments and runs past less gifted opponents.SU is out to prove it’s not one of those teams; or that if it is, it doesn’t matter.“We have the speed, we have the ability, we have the talent to match up with anybody,” junior cornerback Julian Whigham said. “And we’ll prove that this Saturday.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textEven if Syracuse covers Maryland’s receivers, most notably Stefon Diggs and Deon Long, through the end of their routes, the play is far from over. The running ability of Terrapins quarterback C.J. Brown gives his receivers the chance to break off plays and find their own space.Villanova quarterback John Robertson’s scrambling brought SU within a 25-yard field goal of losing its season opener. Robertson didn’t have Brown’s options, though.“We know that they’re great players, we know that they can run, we know that they can run routes but we’re on scholarship too,” Whigham said. “And we can play and we expect to play with these guys.”The 5-foot-7 Poppy Livers was Villanova’s top receiving threat. Brown has the second-best receiver in the Class of 2012 in Diggs in the slot and Deon Long — who Whigham said he will cover — out wide, with Whigham and Long both standing 6 feet tall. Who covers Diggs will shift based on the Orange’s coverages, but the SU pass rush that wreaked havoc against an immobile Central Michigan team will look to make any matchup irrelevant.A defensive line that’s growing to include Wayne Williams and Ryan Sloan allows Ron Thompson, who made five sacks against the Chippewas last Saturday, to play outside more. The Orange can pressure Brown, but catching him requires setting an edge to his pocket.Senior linebacker Cameron Lynch points to the approximately 10 40-yard sprints Syracuse runs at the end of each practice as the base for SU’s ability to hurry Brown and Maryland out of Saturday’s game.“We’ve played fast,” Lynch said. “We’ve played athletes from West Virginia, we’ve played athletes from Florida State. We’ve seen the fastest of the fastest.”Whigham said the secondary carries an underdog outlook into Saturday’s game, partly from hype surrounding Maryland, but also from watching the Terrapins’ stars on game film.It leaves him and the rest of the Orange defense with a point to prove in their first full-field athletic test of the season. He and the other defensive backs do have to worry about the deep ball, and the SU pass rush will pursue a quarterback that can evade it and find an open receiver.The Syracuse defenders said they think they have enough speed to shut down Maryland’s high-speed weapons. But safety Durell Eskridge said that Syracuse also saw the best way forward as hitting the Terrapins before they can run by them.Said Eskridge: “Put our hands on them. Just watching them, I think they don’t like to really be touched.” Commentslast_img read more


first_imgSA Football Association (Safa) president Danny Jordaan promised on Monday a new era for Bafana Bafana that will see a new name, new technical staff and a new technical sponsor.Jordaan said this was not a witchhunt because Bafana lost to Nigeria in the African Nations Championship (Chan) tournament on Sunday, but was part of a process he began when he was elected president late last year.“I am fully aware that the national team needs urgent attention and we are dealing with the situation,” Jordaan said in a statement.“We have a meeting already scheduled in early February where the team name, technical staff and technical sponsorship will be addressed.“Big changes are underway at Safa, not just at the national team level but at grassroots.”He said if the country wanted to build a winning team for the future, efficient structures should be in place from school level. Jordaan said he understood the criticism that Bafana and Safa were receiving about the loss to Nigeria, but said many of the country’s top players had not been allowed to take part in the tournament.“Chan rules restrict the competition to home-based players, and some teams refused to release the players who might have made a difference to the result,” he said.“This is not an excuse, it is the reality of the situation. We could not field our best team because of restrictions.”Jordaan said he had carried out a sweeping review of all Safa management since his appointment.“Things will change, and sooner rather than later. We are going to create a new era where South Africa takes its rightful place as a top African football nation and one that is respected in world football,” he said. “This is the task I have undertaken, and I will not rest until we can hold our heads up in pride.” – Sapalast_img read more
