If a large organization like the Army which is so renowned for the quality and caliber of its leadership and integrity as difficulties with different levels of command and leaders telling the truth to each other, how much of an unseen force is the lack of candor in commercially-based organizations where there is more self-interest among individuals?
How important is it to the culture of the organization that people can tell the truth without fear of repercussions? If that’s not one of the cultural values of the organization, what are the implications going to be for large-scale transformations that require honest and open communication?
How do we break that political and cultural barrier?

I definitely think the two best teams in the tournament made the finals. Nice work with Netherlands completing their tournament with the professional and thorough defeat of Brazil. I would like to see Roberto Martinez coach Brazil’s national team, I think his commentary throughout the World Cup has been phenomenal and inspirational. I really admire his love and understanding of the game. He’s the kind of coach the players want to play for
