As a complex networked society, there is an advantage to becoming 'we' rather than 'me' oriented. The presentation covers a journey froma 'me' mind-set to a 'we' mind-set in educational leadership. Enabling others' capacities and capabilities, future proofing, and change resilience, is not an easy or simple task - but the effort is worthwhile.

What the Social Progress Index can reveal about your country

What the Social Progress Index can reveal about your country | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
The term Gross Domestic Product is often talked about as if it were “handed down from god on tablets of stone.” But this concept was invented by an economist in the 1930s. We need a more effective measurement tool to match 21st century needs, says Michael Green: the Social Progress Index. With charm and wit, he shows how this tool measures societies across the three dimensions that actually matter. And reveals the dramatic reordering of nations that occurs when you use it.
