Ethical Leadership and…a Global Society

Are We Moving Toward a “Global Society”?

To imagine the world as a global society we must look at the issue from a view that is many levels above our day-to-day routines and our sometimes mechanical responses to our day-to-day challenges.

When we see the world as a global society, we see that we need to act as if what happens to others, even people we may never meet, matters. We all share space, food and natural resources. We also share international communication and transportation systems and a global economy.

Thinking about our planet as home to a global society, it is clear that we must act as if what happens to the environment matters. Our survival is dependent on the limited resources we have available and how responsibly we use them.

Trends in A Global Context  

Our collective thinking is evolving. There are currently movements toward

  • random acts of kindness
  • collaboration
  • ethical consumerism
  • sustainable business
  • sharing information to help others

and movements away from

  • tolerance for greed
  • tolerance for harm
  • tolerance for disrespect
  • tolerance for angry behavior
  • tolerance for environmental destruction

Does this mean that we are finally beginning to think and act like a global society?
