Changing the world for the better is, in my estimation, the core and ultimate objective of the Extreme Leader. I’ve often said that we can look at that as “W”orld (as in the whole world) or “w”orld (as in the smaller worlds—family, company, team, community, etc.) that we participate in every day.
Well…here’s your chance to take on the Whole Enchilada. My friend, Ron Schultz, is, along with me and a few other people, the co-founding director of The Center for Social Profit Leadership. He and Stephen Jacobs of Legacy XXI Institute are unabashedly starting a movement. They’ve crafted a Declaration of Human Equality and a blog site to go along with it. This small excerpt captures the spirit and intent behind the effort:
“As our legacy to our children, and to our generations to come, we have a choice to continue in the direction we have been heading, or to alter our pattern of behavior to co-create a world without deceit, hopelessness and despair, a world of human equality.”
What they’re proposing is not a methodology, nor is it a political or religious agenda; rather, it’s a movement based on the commonality of intent to the shift human experience away from its current destructive trend.
I’d put that in the category of Extreme Leadership, wouldn’t you?
