Great graphic summary Daniel. Brands we love - don't care about marketshare; they pursue heartshare deliberately and strategically. They understand a biological; not ideological truth. If you don't capture the heart; you don't have a shot at their brains of business.
Awesome stuff-excited to share!

@LisaPetrilli Courageous indeed. I am so grateful the Universe brought us together, and will never forget the time we spent at SOBCon; it was life changing for me. I learned first hand how people you have never met or only meet for a short time can forever change your heart and mind. So blessed to have you in my life!

@PaulBiedermann@BruceSallan Awhhh! You guys rock!! Thank you!! :-) It was an honor and incredible experience to have a chance at TED!
@douglaserice Join the club! Do you have the TED app- anywhere, anytime---feed that addiction for genius! Went to put Seth on the list several times, but we have access to his genius in so many other ways- wanted to make room for these voices! No doubt- Seth is up there!
@BethGrangerSays Yes Beth it is so easy to get hooked, but this is one addiction that is good for you!! What is your favorite talk?
You need to speak at TED my friend! You inspire me everyday!
@rackerly YES YES! Love Ken Robinson- feel so blessed to be living my element! My wish for every adult and child!

@tomaplomb Well...just because you asked. In a few months it will be ready! Here is a bit of background! http://bit.ly/qGcVi4 cc @danielnewmanUV
@danielnewmanUV Here Here! Thank you for pushing my thinking and wondering about students and leadership. I learn from you daily!
@GaryLoper You are right on my friend! The questions we ask, or rather the questions we have the courage to pursue the answers to define our learning,life, and legacy! We need to wonder freely and carefully. Thank you for the questions you inspire me to pursue! #youmatter
@shawmu You are the best my friend! Questions are the windows to the soul and the road to possibility! I learn to ask the best questions from hanging around with five year olds! Sometimes it is adults that need reminders!
@JayCollier@rackerly Thank you for sharing this! Can not wait to take a look! Can not get enough of TED! What an inspiring message to pass on!
@JayCollier Right on Jay! Another way to phrase- What is something you feel you MUST do well or or driven to do well? We have got to uncover the passions and tap into that energy!
@BruceSallan Absolutely! I knew you were a master learner by the genius questions I see you asking! I love how your questions engage me, challenge me, and make me want to be smarter! Thank you my friend!
And to answer your questions - Absolutely!

I presented this message to educators today,and they are ready to bring these leadership conversations into their classrooms today! This makes me even more excited about the work ahead!
You bring the much needed perspective and the story of what is possible to the education community.
This is a project of passion, and as you so elequntly said- no matter where this goes; lives will be changed and leaders will be developed by these conversations.
Thank you, partner!

Great stuff Daniel. It is hard to "sell yourself" without sounding or acting boastful and arrogant. These are great tips to share with future learners and leaders as they seek to make their mark in the world and make their "presence" known. I see a few #LeadershipHabitudes lessons in the making! Get writing partner!!

Great post Dan!
I think there is a distinct difference (that is very transparent over time) with individuals who are truly trying to deepen the discourse by providing alternative views and those that simply want to be a voice of unreason. It has been my experience that most in the social media space are there to learn, grow, and deepen their understanding. They come to chats, read blogs, engage in Twitter to be challenge, pushed, and inspired. There is no time to waste on individuals who thrive on negativity and insult. Or as you have so eloquently said, we just don't need any more stinkin' negativity!
Love this post!

@deleted_91832_Sean McGinnis I suspected that! The people that I work and learn from at work and on the web, do this for me everyday! They are universal needs for anyone big or small! Thanks for that perspective.
@davidmcgraw David, thanks so much for sharing the post. We hire educators on how well know and can delver their content, but not often based on the qualification you spoke about in "Are We Teachable?".
I think the really hard part about being a parent is when what we want-- teachers to know and notice our kids, is not always what we get.
Would love your thoughts on this topic: http://bit.ly/fYQzNB
Thanks for taking the time to have the conversation David! So appreciate your insight!

@douglaserice Doug, that makes me so sad, and this is exactly the message I wanted to come forth in the post. We remember forever the teachers that cared about us, and noticed the amazing regardless of the content they taught. Thank you for reminding us that the impact is long lasting.
@QuincyTutoring Thanks Quincy! I think this question is a great way to start the day in the classroom and in the boardroom! Glad you liked the post!
@MaryAnnReilly You are so welcome MaryAnne. I agree, 12 is the ultimate act of education and leadership; when you say to a learner I believe in you, I know you are capable, and I trust you to be great!
@SteveLeBlanc Hi Steve! Wow- thank you so much for your comment. I so hope it motivates us all, teachers, parents, leaders...to ask better questions of one another. Amazing things happen when the people we are with know someone is listening. You just asked a rockstar question- I love this , and can not wait to share! Thank you!
@BalancingGoddess Now that is just about the most beautiful comment I have ever received on a post. You just made my day! If even one fraction of one request was met everyday for every child- we will have succeeded! Thank you so much for reminding us!
@BruceSallan That is my favorite part of hanging out with kids. They pull no punches, there are no politics, not facades...just pure, simple truth! Adults can learn a lot from!
@samfiorella Sam, I do not believe that for a second! Kids at school are very different from kids at home; especially if they are teenagers! I will need to add- let me eat my lunch when I am hungry to the list...lots of merit to that one young and old!
Thanks Daniel for this post- these are important dots for leaders to connect especially for leaders that are looking to improve themselves. There is a wealth of information and learning opportunity on the web, but this is where Social Media really shines.
It is a leadership imperative to facilitate this spirit of genuine concern and support for individuals and organization working to help others accomplish their dreams. It not only defines our influence, but it defines our legacy.
