A horizon beckoning
Much as we try, we can only peer a very short distance into the future, and even then the unfolding of sudden unforeseen events can crack open what we imagined to be immutable. The very ground we stand on is fissured and moving.
Any profound disruption to the status quo, whether crisis or otherwise, will inevitably offer the opportunity to see and act anew. Now is the time to pause, take a breath, and see what was always available but so very rarely appreciated. These deeply troubled times could birth an entirely new definition and practice of how we live, work, and find meaning in the 21st Century. What are humans if bereft of humanity? How might our businesses change if guided by the determination to serve and contribute? How might the people within organisations act differently if, beyond doubt, they knew that their work was contributing to the sum of human happiness? What could ensue if, like the lion in The Wizard of Oz, we found our courage?
This talk invites a radical re-imagining of the story that has brought us thus far. It is a horizon beckoning.
Three main points or learning outcomes:
- The realisation that we stand in front of a mirror and that it reflects truly – without distortion and without judgement.
- The knowledge that our children, indeed the young of all kinds, will collectively inherit the outcomes of our choices.
- The understanding that first and foremost this is a personal choice and not contingent on what others may or may not do.
