Business must lead the way
Business must lead the way. That sounds ridiculous. It is not business that will lead, business will follow the people. The people that will be followed are those individuals with the vivid vision of the future. Not the future of next quarter, or next year, but the next 10, 15 or 30 years.
Those individuals that will lead are those with resources available to actualize their visions. Those people are business leaders. Those business leaders that carry the vision of a future where people breathe clean air, and drink clean water, where the poor are considered poor because they don’t own the luxuries such as platinum plated dimonds, but still have access to healthcare, good food and shelter and education will be the leading the businesses that succeed. Because of the growing access to information, and the growing global conversation, people are gaining the power to influence those that oppose the progress to a beautiful future.
The business leaders of the future are now used to the global conversation, and embrace it fully. They recognize the value of human life, and the dignity of nature. They understand that humans and nature are not seperate competing entitites, that we are children of nature, and that whatever we do is natural. Yet as children of nature we must face the consequences of our actions.
