transition table

Is this proposal just another utopic worldview or is really feasible ? Can we do it ? Look into the table ! Take a minute and think about !

Can humanity understands the need of a social change to enable worldwide collaboration for a better living place for all ?!

 

Remember the song „Imagine” of John Lenon:

….

Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will lïve as one

 

Gravesian Theory – it’s all about the people !

When we speak about people and their social and cultural behaviours, we need to analyze the underlying values.

Spiral dynamics

In English, „value” has its root in past participle of Lat. „Valare” with the meaning of being healthy, strong, of worth („Vale !” was a common greeting for romans).  „But where do values come from? Values spring from worldviews. To effectively work with values means understanding worldviews – how people think, and why people adopt specific values.”

Leadership – to go forth or to die ?

Today everybody talks about leadership ! It’s everyone dream to be a leader, having in mind the social personal benefits ! Few exceptions from this rule, just validate it !

leader The word has its origin in Sanskrit word „leit” with two meanings: to go forth or to die, transferred in Germanic „laidjan” and later in Old English „laedan „, in modern English being „lead”.

Leadership being a buzz word nowadays, we are just wondering how to evaluate the results of any leadership. Our global and national leadership in economics, politics, social areas is a moving forward action for Humanity or is its dead end ? Looking on actual results of leadership, we can conclude that in near future it will have the meaning of a human societaty dying process ! May be the ancient world and its languages like Sanskrit knew better what is all about the leadership, that’s why they allowed two meanings for the same word ! Concluding, leadership, as a social paradigm for go forth, is just dying !

We need new social structures, which should make the transition from actual ego-centrism paradigm to socio-centrism paradigm in our society. Not individuals will find a magic solution for our survival, but we all together can find better ways to adapt our Humanity to new global challenges and local environment conditions.

Diesel cars examined released over 10 times more NOx than revealed by existing EU tests. We urgently need to reform !!

New diesel cars from Renault, Nissan, Hyundai, Citroen, Fiat, Volvo and other manufacturers have all been found to emit substantially higher levels of pollution when tested in more realistic driving conditions, according to new data seen by the Guardian.
“We urgently need to reform. This is not just about customers being misled, it is about the thousands of premature deaths due to air pollution each year.” – Catherine Bearder, who is a lead negotiator in the European parliament on the EU’s new air quality law.

 

Theory U

Using his experience working with some of the world’s most accomplished leaders and innovators, Otto Scharmer shows in Theory U how groups and organizations can develop seven leadership capacities in order to create a future that would not otherwise be possible.

Since it emerged around 2006, Theory U has come to be understood in three primary ways: first as a framework; second, as a method for leading profound change; and third, as a way of being – connecting to the more authentic of higher aspects of our self.Social_spaces

Men are on twitter, while women are on Facebook !

Here is a snapshot of the basic demographics:

    • Facebook skews female at 76 percent of users; fastest growing demographic is adults aged 65+; 77 percent of users earn less than $30,000/year
    • Twitter skews primarily male; 36 percent of users engage multiple times daily; and 27 percent of users earn more than $50,000/year
    • LinkedIn is more popular than Twitter among adults; accounts for 50 percent of college-educated internet users; only 13 percent of users engage daily and those users tend to be executive level
    • Pinterest is dominated by women; most active users are aged 18–29; income levels are split between limited and affluent

Based on those statistics, LinkedIn is a natural fit for a leadership expert because of the direct access to managers and C-suite executives. Those same managers and executives probably aren’t browsing Pinterest, so spending valuable time and resources developing that platform may not be necessary.
