Secretary of State John Kerry on the Future of Civilization

At the recently concluded World Economic Forum in Davos, Secretary of State John Kerry stated that the major challenge we face is between "civilization"and "barbarism".

I would add that the best strategy for eliminating barbarism is for our civilization to consciously and overtly work to become one in which we all (the entire "human family") learn to live in harmony.

How to do that?  Start with studying the pioneering management work of Dr. W. Edwards Deming and the science-based, scenario planning work of Dr. R. Buckminster Fuller.  Then find a vehicle for introducing this pathbreaking vision into your company.

That's what I'm here to do.  If you want your company to offer both your current and future customers (and ultimately the public-at-large) an aspirational road map to a much better future, contact me.

Here is a taste of their work:

Dr. Deming on a transformed world in which "everyone wins". (4:19)

Dr. Fuller on an economic system based on abundance rather than scarcity. (2:21)

Getting Back In The Game

While one's personal and professional life may have it's ups and downs, the challenge of creating a more sustainable and prosperous world for all remains.

I have been on a break since late 2013 to get past a particularly bumpy part of the roller coast ride of life but am now getting back in the game.

I invite you all to read about the new Global Commission on Business and Sustainable Development, which had its public launch at the World Economic Forum in Davos this month.

Why does the CSR movement need another organization? Good question!  But with anything new comes new opportunities for fresh thinking.  I'll be reporting on what new thinking might be going on and what new thinking "could" go on soon.

Thanks for your interest!

"Stay tuned..."
