Our world we live in

by Richard Bellars

Where is our world today? Where do we go from here?Blind curve

We are living in a world of unprecedented, constant and rapidly increasing change.  It brings uncertainty and fear – realised as anger, poor decisions, and stress.

Now more than ever, emerging leaders need to be equipped to move beyond their concerns to consistently learn, evolve, perform and inspire.

To do this, leaders need to learn, practise and evolve to know and to trust who they are.

This is their foundation and their core – empowering them to go beyond what they do and have done in the past to inspire, create and deliver a better tomorrow today.

Answering the call

This is a call for those who know they have something more to offer and are itching to create meaningful impact and positive influence.

For individuals, this is an opportunity to ease that niggle, answer that call and give it meaning through learning and action.

For successful organisations, talent must be nurtured.  To do otherwise is to stagnate, with cost of recruitment and staff turnover the least of the issues to face.

Why leave your legacy ‘some day’ when you can live your legend today?

Whether in business or politics, voluntary or paid, local or global, our world (and it is for all of “us”) needs leaders at all levels who can courageously step forward to be and do what they were always meant to be and do. I like the words (paraphrased) of Richard Barrett, Founder of the Barrett Values Centre and Architect of The New Leadership Paradigm: “We need leaders who recognize that to get the best business results, it is no longer about being the best in the world, but about being the best for the world”.
