Global Sense Of Worth

Posted in Educational Leadership, Global Leadership, Leadership, Leadership Development by Dr. Byron L. Ernest on April 29, 2021

I am an eager student of Edgar H. Schein and am reading his book, Humble Consulting: How To Provide Real Help Faster, right now. Something I just read really stuck out to me, “Treat each other as persons instead of their roles.” This is about “doing” not “espousing” (too many leaders think that doing the right thing applies to everyone, but them). Truly respecting is having admiration and esteem for others, and dignity is the belief that all humans have inherent worth and deserve basic rights and equitable treatment.

Everyone has potential and should be inherently valued regardless of title, status, or situation. This is really a global sense of worth. As humans, we are multifaceted and cannot be fit into the box that many would like to crop us into. I believe we need to have everyone showing us their potential and worth by putting it all out there like the inflatable “air dancers.” These powerful advertising tools get our attention by their free uninhibited motion. That motions causes distraction and we pay attention. We need to be watching for the potential and value in others and pay attention.
