The new signposts for leaders
The World Economic Forum 2018 has just come to a close in Davos and if we judge the scope and potential impact of the event by its headlines then I think there’s much reason to be encouraged.
Whether it is talk of the need for a new vision for Europe, all female panels with some pretty impressive participants, the call for a code of ethics for Artificial Intelligence and Science, or Jack Ma reminding us that in the age of rampant technology, the IQ of love is actually the thing we need to develop more than anything.
Perhaps the consciousness is increasing and by that I mean we are really lifting our collective heads up and out toward the greater challenges and opportunities facing humanity. We are maybe starting to explore, examine and consider fundamental issues from the place of Unity in diversity. I know that may seem overly hopeful or perhaps even naive but without hope what do we have?
Personally I feel encouraged. And yet it’s not enough for the people on the stage to be talking about these things and for us to sit back and wait for them to take action. Everyone, and especially each and every leader, has the responsibility to consider all of these issues within their own sphere of influence. Responsibility for developing a vision for the greater good, embracing truly ethical behaviour in all things, committing to a lived commitment to equality and diversity and underpinning and informing all of that, cultivating a culture and behaviours that are informed by love. Love for each and every living thing.
Too much of a stretch? I think not.
