Like Sands Through the Hourglass...

A note from Eric Lanke:

When 2011 comes to an end I'm going to stop posting here on The Hourglass Blog. I started this adventure almost three years ago with the intention of exploring the impact of generational shift on the leadership of our organizations and, while I have certainly done that, I have explored a number of other topics as well. These topics have been of great interest to me, but they have clearly been outside the scope of the original manifesto.

Because of this, and because of my desire to continue to explore the ideas that interest me most, I have decided to set-up shop at a new blog, one molded around all of my interests rather than one narrow subset of them. The new blog, at, is up and running now. If you've enjoyed what you've read here, I would encourage you to read, subscribe or otherwise follow my activities there. Until the end of 2011, I'll be posting jointly in both places, but I expect all the sand will run out of this Hourglass by the end of December.
