It’s in our nature to memorialise: a side effect of the social urge, is an urge to remember, to remember the purpose and bonds that we once held true.

But monuments are not eternal: they crumble to dust, as did the social structures and norms that built them.

Our discipline, as Social Leaders, is to take note, to be the honest chroniclers of our time. Are our organisations unified with shared purpose, or are they memorialising the greatness of a receding past?

Time flows: sheer mass and density will not resist the ravages of relevance. Only diversified strength, dynamic change, and humility, will allow us to persist.
