Thoughtful Thursday: how well is the world doing by this measure of leadership?

I suppose it depends on what “making everyone else better” means to each of us. Maybe thinking in terms of how we’re doing in protecting our planet, fighting racism, and overcoming inequality?! What works for you?

    I tried hard to live this at work and my volunteer life. Building people up is so much better than a negative world.

  2. I’m not seeing a lot of great leadership in too many countries in the world. I see far more great leadership among grassroots people who come together to solve problems, like the recent flooding in BC.

  3. Roy McCarthy says:

    Enabling others to be the best version of themselves.

  4. Thanks for a mind stimulating piece and certainly the leaders Deb mentioned get good grades and I think Biden may also make it into that group but unfortunately I believe we are seriously lacking here except for Singh?

    • Jane Fritz says:

      Thanks, Wayne. I don’t disagree that Biden’s heart is in the right place, but a leader is someone who has followers, and Biden doesn’t have enough of them. I think Singh is a good example.

  5. That is, indeed, the question!

  6. Love the leadership quote! I believe in servant leadership and tried to always walk the talk when I was managing.

    I don’t think I need to say how well leadership is going in the UK 😦 The single highlight I’ve seen this year is the current health secretary persuading a journalist to go get his booster right there & then before they filmed the piece he was there for. If that hadn’t happened last week, I’d have nothing for you from this side of the pond.

    Nicola Sturgeon in Scotland, Angela Merkel in Germany and Jacinta Arden in NZ get seriously honourable mentions and their populations get looks of envy from me.
