Is It Just Me, Or Have You Noticed…?

Naked Leader Week 1019 – 17 April 2023
…That more people are asking different questions these days?
Deeper, more personal, spiritual even?
I am noticing this at events, online and even in conversations on the London tube!
“Who am I, really?” Demonstrated by the huge interest in identity.
“Why am I here?” Often expressed as “What’s the point?” or “What’s the meaning of life?”
And in leadership – phrases that used to be considered weak, now seen as brave and strong:
“I was wrong”
“I don’t know”
“It’s my fault”
So, if this seeming rise in more private, honest and emotional questions and admissions is indeed happening, then why?
Could it be because of increasing conflicts in the world, leading to more awareness of love, of our mortality, and of each other?
Perhaps the rise in interest in AI has sparked discussions and debates about the implications of advanced technology for humanity?
Or of organisations realising that potential customers care as much, if not more, why they do something over what they do?
Whatever it is, I find it very exciting, and giving each of us more hope, awareness and certainty, in an increasingly uncertain world.
What do you think?
With my love and best wishes to you all
Nope. Definitely not just you. And IF it is because of the above reasons, then I congratulate the human species… But sadly, I notice more and more that many are saying those sentences because their PR people are telling them to. It sounds good. It’s ‘in with the times’… Makes you sound humble and ‘human’. Emotionally intelligent. Because those are the latest things to be in the corporate world and in the world, in general…
Which really makes a bit of a mockery of those marvellous people who actually say those things genuinely.
But this is a positive place… I will take my cynical view away . And continue to try and keep the faith in humanity!
You could never be cynical Diana! x
