Environment predicts behaviour and the challenge with trying to transform the world is that we’re still operating in a culture of ‘Dominance Hierarchy’.
As Anand Giridharadas notes in his book: ‘Winners Take All’ the elites begin to lead social change only to let their own bias for power and control, restrict any useful transformation.
The challenge with inequality and hierarchy is that it encourages the ‘Four Horses of the Apocalypse’ i.e. Psychopathology, Narcissism, Machiavellianism and Sadism.
We’ve seen no end of this in world leaders, yet we still wait for them to make the world a better place for us?
Make your organisations egalitarian, which requires a different leadership skill set than is usually taught and also the language changes too. From Employee to collaborator.
