Re-Branding Our Species: A Leadership Challenge For All Of Us
By Alexander Laszlo, Green MBA Mentor
To do this, we first have to abandon our ego-centric conceptions of self. We can no longer look out at the world through the eyes of strident individual self-interest. And above all, we must be ready to repudiate our gladiatorial existence and learn how to be communal beings. To commune with ourselves, with each other, with nature, with past and future possibilities.
This is no mere poetic flight of fancy. It is the survival imperative of our times. Beyond re-branding ourselves in this way, the true challenge lies in leadership for holistic thrivability. And we cannot meet this challenge alone.
