I was inspired by the talkings and writings of Jamie Wheal and Adam Curtis on this subject recently. Describing the collapse of what we perceive to be benign authority – religious, political and corporate.
Scandals that have rocked our trust. Our privacy being used and abused. The giants dodging Corporation Tax. The manufacturers skipping on Compliance. Questioning motive. Being emotive therefore. The list goes on.
In some cases we can vote, maybe with our feet. But what does this call for? Simple, a greater emphasis on self leadership. Being authentic. Author. Authority. Give ourselves permission.
