It showed a picture of some of the delegates on the steps of Freedom Hall Khartoum and an invitation on the reverse to submit comments and reflections.

What follows is her candid account of how…

Widening the social circle and trust building

As detailed in Chapter 5 of my free eBook titled “Knowledge Transfer for the Military Leader” one of the major impediments to knowledge transfer is lack of trust combined with a tendency on the part of many individuals toward maintaining too small a social circle.

Trust building is very important in what we do. Why? The more trust a person has in another individual the smoother and more spontaneous the flow off knowledge and experience between them will be over time. People tend to…
