The Moral Leader

I used some work for the very first time today, work considering the ‘moral’ leader. It’s very fragmented, just some questions really so far, but it concerns the imperfection of our actions, our context, and our ‘self’. In essence it is an enquiry framework to consider how the ‘self’ operates within the system, and just how much agency we have as we do so.

There are four sections to this work: 

  • The Map, which asks how we understand the landscape we inhabit, how we learn what is ‘right’, and whether we ever get lost.
  • The Community, which looks at the people we travel with, how our values are found, and how (or rather whether) we make each other better.
  • The Compass, which is really at the heart of this work, considering how we choose our direction, what guides our actions, and whether we hold independence, or are heavily influenced.
  • The Journey, which is about how we are accountable, to whom, and whether we drift away from our intended direction.

I’m not sure i like the title: i switched it to ‘Imperfect Leadership’ at one stage, but now it’s back to the ‘moral’ one.

As i say, it’s early stage. I know there is something here i want to explore.

So i will see where the conversation takes me, and then decide whether to carry it further, or leave it behind.
