Universal Truth: Fact or Myth?
      
There seems to be a lot of angst these days over "fake" news. In our American culture, news (as presented to us by our media outlets) is presumed to be "true."
 
So let's examine truth. Oxford's web dictionary even seems to be a little unclear. Consider these two definitions:  
 
  1. That which is true or in accordance with fact or reality.
  2. A fact or belief that is accepted as true.
 
The first definition is either circular (truth is what's true?) or very clear: "reality."
 
The second appears to me to be significantly less clear: "accepted as true."

Altruism

According to Scott Farrell, MD, altruism is " the belief in or practice of disinterested and selfless concern for the wellbeing of others." 
 
In contrast, egoism (a.k.a., egotism) is "an ethical theory that treats self-interest as the foundation of morality." 
 
These two terms are about as polar opposite as two words can be. Black/white. Good/evil. Angel/devil. Altrusim/egoism.
 
Not to be a pessimist, but I believe I see the world that I know gravitating FROM altruism TOWARD egoism.  (Read more).....

A note from the author:

Trust.

Understanding.

Camaraderie.

Three foundations of successful teams.

It has dawned on me that when working with management teams of highly productive executives, the most progress made is with the individual.  After all, it's the individuals who develop these three conditions....or do not.

They may be a part of a team.  They may even lead that team.  They are first and foremost individuals.  People who came to this position with Knower/Judger ramifications that can both serve the mission well and cause it to stumble.  Serve the individual's life well, or cause it to stumble as well.

So it is clearly with the individual I work.  It is even more fun when I work with multiple interacting individuals, and I can watch interpersonal wellness enhance performance and productivity.

Most managers and executives I have had the pleasure of Coaching report benefits not only in their professional world, but in their personal and recreational worlds as well.  The tools are Universal.

If you want to explore expanding potential, enriching relationships, and accelerating performance....anywhere in your world, drop me a line or give me a call.  Curiosity is a wonderful teacher.

...and....it's Time to Learn.
"There is a clear and present danger.....when you are neither clear nor present."
