President Bill Clinton riveted the crowd with a keynote covering a broad swath of problems. His solutions include systems thinking and positive dialog. Engaging and powerful.
[…] President Clinton Keynote Mindmap-Â Clark Quinn, November 7, 2011 […]
Nancy White says
When and where was the speech? Context? Did you make the map? Curious minds want to know (and give credit when I amplify!)

Interesting mindmap: Clinton has effectively summarised the world’s problems with the 3Us, but not having heard this speech yet, did he provide any clear strategy as to how to address the issue of being unsustainable? With an ever-increasing world population, subsequent decreasing essential resources and world powers who appear to have ‘lost interest’ in sustainability, recycling and reduction of waste in the last 2 or 3 years, a change must happen…
Nancy, it was a keynote at Learning 2011. I made the map while listening.
Liz, Clinton’s solutions were that we had to move beyond confrontation and get into collaboration. We also needed to use science and systems thinking. It was largely apolitical in principle, but illustrated with what could be considered to be political points. And that the US had to reinvent itself.
Thanks for the feedback!

Thanks Craig –
Just posted your mindmap (with attribution) and some discussion of Clinton’s speech on our blog http://www.MentorResources.com/blog
Of course, my comments were aimed at Talent Management/Leadership Development professionals – so I tilted my interpretation of his comments to trends in in-sourcing with American workers.
Thank you for the beautiful mindmap.
