SELLING OUT FREEDOM

SELLING OUT FREEDOM
Oct 17, 2019 by Kevin D. Hancock
I was scanning the news on my phone when the reality struck me. The next cold war has already begun. But this one is different, harder to detect, because it’s being waged with money not guns and the adversary is the Chinese Communist Party.  

What organization inadvertently shined a light on this new cold war? Unexpectedly, it was the National Basketball Association. 

On October 4, the Houston Rockets GM, Daryl Morey tweeted, ‘FIGHT FOR FREEDOM.  STAND WITH HONG KONG.’  I was happy to see this. All fall I have been saddened by how little moral support these brave pro-democracy protestors have received from leaders in the United States. The protesters most aggressive demand for Hong Kong?  They want to be able to elect their leaders – which the Chinese Communist Party does not allow (In China the Party picks your leaders).  The very fact that they need masks to protest tells you everything you need to know about the Chinese government.  You don’t need a mask in America to disagree with your government. 

So why have they not received more encouragement? The answer, it turns out, is money.

DO MORE GOOD by Kevin Hancock

“There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about.”- Margaret J. Wheatley

May 18, 2019: This past Friday I spoke in Lincoln, Nebraska at the DO MORE GOOD conference.  Don’t you love that title, DO MORE GOOD?!

Do More Good conference stage at the University of Nebraska Innovation Campus

The conference was held at the University of Nebraska Innovation Campus in the shadows of the giant Cornhusker football stadium.  It was an exciting opportunity for me because the event brought in some top business speakers from around the country.  Jay Cohen Gilbert, founder of the B Corporation movement, spoke.  So, too, did Rand Stagen, co-founder of the Conscious Capitalism movement.

The conference was a...

The Consequences of Overreaching

Mar 25, 2019 by Kevin D. Hancock
The Wall Street Journal recently published this article titled, Fast-Tracked Aircraft Certification, Pushed by Boeing, Comes Under the Spotlight

My next book is about, in part, OVERREACHING, and how leaders often go too far and take too much…

One of the common paths of overreaching, I have concluded, is GOING TOO FAST…and cutting corners in the ZEST to get there.

Nearly every book on Custer’s last stand indicates that he was in a hurry for a victory because he wanted the news to reach the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia before it ended.  His rush for glory led him to attack before he KNEW the situation he was entering. 

“We scouts thought there were too many Indians for Custer to fight…It was the biggest...
