Charles Ives Holiday Symphony
Coming of age at the dawn of the twentieth century, Charles Ives saw the halcyon days of his youth fading fast. Not willing to let them go, he invented a striking new musical language to enshrine the feelings and ideals of a simpler time. But many, shocked by passages like the “fireworks” in ‘Fourth of July,’ found his new-fangled methods at odds with the memories he was trying to preserve. Did Ives go too far? Or did he succeed in turning his memories into music?

2.1 The development of gender identity

In this section we are going to look at where we come from in terms of childhood experience and the development of gender identities in childhood. Gender identity involves the construction and use of gender categories. Children's gender categories are at first rather simplistic; but, as we shall see, children refine their categories so that they become more reliable and useful for their social lives. Studying the development of gender identity in children reveals that this is a story of a sea

Surviving turbulence: the creative brilliance of crowds - Ashridge Journal Article
In harsh economic times, according to business mythology, senior leaders need to know the right path; to show the steady hand of experience. They need to get back to basics.

In our experience, fully engaged participation offers the most potent way to build on the collective intelligence and insight of all your staff whilst at the same
