We are millions of S-T Leaders (Innovators, Actualizers) over 35+ (entrepreneurs, SMBs owners, managers, venture capitalists, manufacturers, educators, intellectuals, philosophers, poets, writers, coaches, trainers and others), feeling inspired by the quest for self-transcendence (peak experience, the values of Being, the beauty of life, flow, unitive ideas, experience of a communion beyond the boundaries of self, and other life-altering moments in personal and business life).
We are optimistic in the long run, intellectual, creative, open to change, sophisticated leaders with wide intellectual interests.
We like personal and business challenges, problem solving, relatively independent and self-defined intellectual tasks, discovering new and analyzing the big picture from a different perspective to be in charge and on the move.
And we are also more than this...
It is obvious, that...
- The forces of globalization and technology have complicated the competitive
arena, creating a need for self-transcended leaders who can respond differently
to a changing world and who can focus not only on results but on the good they,
their products, and their organizations can do to the world around them (
- Self-transcendence, peak experience, a person's ability to obtain a unitive
consciousness, the values of Being among businessmen, managers, educators,
intellectuals and others who are supposed to be self- transcenders are their main, most important motivations and meta need (Abraham Maslow)
- Whats needed next: A culture of candor: the change from an exclusive focus on WHAT is earned to include HOW it is earned (O Toole, J&Bennis, 2009, June,
Harvard Business Review 54-61)
