AFTER TEACHING TRADITIONAL CHEN STYLE TAI CHI FOR OVER 20 YEARS, I WAS CALLED TO CREATE A BRAND NEW TRAINING SYSTEM DESIGNED TO OVERCOME THE CHALLENGES WE ALL FACE TODAY.
Business is one of the most powerful forces on our planet. At its best it encourages collaboration, innovation and mutual well-being - helping us to live more vibrant and fulfilling lives. However, at its worst it can cause significant social and environmental damage.
Growing up I was led to believe that the goal of business was simply to be profitable. However, this belief limits our imagination and the ability to reach our full potential as human beings. Instead of focusing on the 'bottom line', leaders must lift their heads and aim a little higher.
As we enter this new technological era, business leaders will be expected to build organisations that seamlessly combine high growth with high impact, where businesses don’t only make money but also make difference in the world too. This is no longer altruistic, but a growing expectation. Unless we commit to creating a better business for our workers, our community and for our planet - then there may not be a bottom line.
We're no longer competing with others to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world.
