Leadership is Human-Centred

By | September 24th, 2016|Blog Challenge, Future, Leadership|

BONUS DAY 22 ReWrite the World Blog Challenge I imagine a world in which leadership is human-centred. So that.... Acts of leadership speak louder than positions of leadership. Those we work for care about our wellbeing more than the bottom line. Those who represent us in government are there to serve more than seek power and play political games. Leadership skills are taught in schools to empower children to be sovereign over their own existence and to hold the collective well-being as paramount in decision making. Today, leadership is as much a learned skill as it is a bestowed title. [...]

Business Solves Today’s Problems

By | September 9th, 2016|Blog Challenge, Future, Leadership|

I imagine a world in which business solves today’s problems. So that... We use some of the significant wealth and resources in the business world to address issues like poverty and inequality, environmental degradation, and enables conflict resolution to prevent wars. The demonisation of business is replaced with respect because industry has earned the public's trust back. Today, business is seen as running in spite of people’s needs and oblivious to the limits of natural resources, with no regard to long-term sustainability. Commercial institutions are regarded as short-sighted, and uncaring entities that flog their widgets regardless of if they are actually needed or useful for [...]

Empathy is Ubiquitous

By | September 8th, 2016|Blog Challenge, Emotional Intelligence, Future, Leadership|

reWrite the World Blog Challenge Day 20 I imagine a world in which empathy is ubiquitous so that... Emotions are met with openness, curiosity and compassion. Concerns and misgivings are aired and dealt with in an openhearted manner. Edge dwellers are accepted for their eccentricity without judgement or social isolation. Today we judge before seeking to understand. Many of our emotions go unexpressed and are associated with shame and fear. Our emotionally phobic culture validates our tendency to squelch our emotions and perpetuates social isolation, enforcing a rigid scope of 'normalcy'.  Our frayed social fabric is marked by disconnection. [...]

Creative Expression brings Everyday Inspiration

By | September 7th, 2016|Blog Challenge, Future, Leadership|

reWrite the World Blog Challenge Day 19 I imagine a world in which creative expression brings everyday inspiration. So that... Children keep their creativity after age 12 and into the rest of their lives. Those of us who live outside the lines or on the edges of ‘normal’ can live long, healthy, happy and fulfilling lives. The arts are valued for the important role they play in society and our artists are thriving members of our communities. Today, between age 9 and 12 children begin to loose touch with their creative selves and learn to conform and ‘fit in’ to society. This is a tragic loss of creativity [...]

Personal Responsibility is Common Practice

By | September 6th, 2016|Blog Challenge, Future, Leadership|

reWrite the World Blog Challenge Day 18 I imagine a world in which personal responsibility is common practice, so that... Integrity is routine and a choice rather than an obligation Transgressions are fleeting because they’re dealt with promptly Parliamentary sessions discuss political matters respectfully and gain a deeper understanding of issues Today our culture is rife with finger pointing, blame and deflection of responsibility. Our political leaders, celebrities and even our justice system have questionable morality the way 'being responsible' is modelled for society. According to Billboard Magazine, “It wasn’t me” by Shaggy was the first #1 song of [...]
