We have built a world in which competition rules but it's time to pay more attention to the art of collective leadership, says Petra Kuenkel...
In a Guardian article in June, George Monbiot stated poignantly that Rio 2012 was "perhaps, the greatest failure of collective leadership since the first world war." He goes on to explain that leaders support the paradigm of growth and competition that has led to were we are today.
We have built a world in which silos – nations, companies, people – compete with each other and world leaders and many of their followers act accordingly. But what did Monbiot mean when he talked about a "collective leadership"?
