How is it that as our access to information dramatically increases, our views appear to become more narrow? In reading General Martin Dempsey's and Ori Brafman's chapter on the digital echo, I felt I finally had the language and a tool kit to be able to think about how and why we seem to be experiencing a time of such radical polarization -- a time when it appears we have lost our ability to converse calmly, debate rationally, listen empathetically and hear divergent points of view.
For example, while talking about the "fog of war," Dempsey and Brafman present us with a powerful question: "What if the fog not only denied you access to the facts, but actually convinced you of the validity of erroneous data?" They go on to write that they predict "there soon will come a time when, despite using all the resources available to us, we will simply not be able to tell what is actually true."
Unfortunately, I am afraid they are right. I worry that in this age of highly filtered, information overload, we are losing (or have already lost) our ability to research unbiased information and expand rather than narrow our world views. Radical Inclusion seems to me to have as good of a chance as any at reversing these alarming trends. Now that's writing worth reading. Thank you both!
"As the digital echo spreads, as complex issues multiply, as uncertainty increases, as technology exponentially changes, and as risk rises, it seems reasonable that we should seek to lead by sharing our challenges rather than owning them outright," -- Martin Dempsey and Ori Brafman, Radical Inclusion: What the Post-9/11 World Should Have Taught Us about Leadership.
Of note is that the authors refer to another book by Mr. Brafman titled, The Spider and the Starfish. The leadership principles described here have a foundation in Mr. Brafman’s previous book and are supported by examples from General Dempsey’s career. For example, he describes a meeting with a Captain at a forward operating base in Afghanistan. The captain argues that the US military needs to adapt its fighting objectives to more effectively combat decentralized organizations like the Taliban. Decentralized organizations are resilient because they are inherently inclusive. The Captain then makes reference to the author’s successful use of inclusiveness in a previous legal fight with McDonalds over veganism.
Bottom line: The authors did an excellent job of describing the effectiveness of being inclusive. It is a leadership principle that every manager should practice. The book is a quick read at only 176 pages and anyone who is a leader, will get something from it.

Addresses the dichotomy between our evolved culture and our revolutionary technology.
Only downside where some rather tritely worded stories. Great to learn from a 4stars experience. But they felt a bit forced in wording
