How is the success of people, organisations and societies actually measured?
We live in a time in which we (especially here in the west) tend to measure success mainly from a social-financial-economic perspective. Fears of shortages are fed, fed by world leaders, spiritual leaders, banks, health insurers. Money, influence and efficiency often shift from being preconditions to becoming goals in themselves. This time calls for a letting go of old paradigms to make a transition to paradigms where human values are central. Compassion plays a major role in this. Our position is that compassionate leadership contributes to a humane society. Who is already doing that? Of course compassion is age-old, but is increasingly referred to as a value response to stagnated development.
Can we move along with the current change?
