A Social Movement

Just a quiet reflection tonight: in was pleased to complete the first draft of ‘The humble leader’ yesterday, but feel quite uncertain about it. I’m unclear if this was the thing bubbling away in my head, or if this is just a step towards the thing. I’m ok with that uncertainty: for me, writing is a reflective, almost meditative, activity, and if something feels ‘stuck’, then that’s because it’s not yet ready to come out!

The Humble Leader

Sharing the essay yesterday left me feeling vulnerable: this is often the case when my work diverges, when i move into new areas. But it feels like a drawing together of a few threads. At least it’s clear in my head, if not my writing. We face challenges that will only be met through a social movement. A change in mindset: to build the organisations that we need, to be governed in ways that are inclusive and fair, to reduce inequality. Bold ambitions, but we can achieve these things if we evolve our mindset of competition and gain. We can all win.
