Leadership In The World Today II:

Webinar

Cowboy Cottage, East Napa, California, USA

July 13, 2017



"The one thing which I would say is most missing, and if provided would make the biggest difference in having a workable world, is if we had a breakthrough, a transformation in what it is to be a human being. And that's my whole story."
... 
answering the question "As you observe and assess the challenges of leadership in the world today, what one thing would you say is most missing - and if provided, would make the biggest difference to having a workable world?"
This essay, Leadership In The World Today II: Webinar, is the sequel to Leadership In The World Today.

I am indebted to Josh Cohen who contributed material for this conversation.




Work in progress.

In my conversations with delighted webinarians (I just made that word up - I borrowed from "seminarians") following the webinar, people are lavish in their appreciation of the value of what Werner speaks to - in this case, leadership, and specifically leadership in the world today.

For what it's worth (and this is my opinion only) it's not so much what he speaks "to" which is valuable (and it is): it's what (or where)  he speaks "from". He comes from (and so he bringsforth) who he is / who you are in every word of his speaking.

So it's just possible he could speak on any  topic, both those he's expert at, as well as those he isn't, and in the case of the latter, still create value for people, not because of what he knows, but because of where he speaks from. And as we all know in correct English, "to" and "from" aren't interchangeable.
