Leadership and Friendship?
October 4, 2019
Hosted by Dr. Matthew Allen Woolsey
We live in a time of great loneliness, inequality, hatred, conflict, and disconnect. But we are not the first. Pretty much every civilisation in the last five and half thousand years has grappled to come to terms with the same fundamental troubles we experience now. We keep making the same mistakes over and over, struggling to find lasting peace, safety, and security for our families and ourselves. I believe the key to getting off this crazy, destructive, merry-go-round can be found in better understanding the fundamental drives in every human being. Among them, recognising the role of friendship in our transition from being tribal hunter-gatherers to farmers and how this changed our priorities. In our hearts we can identify we are a tribal people, but we are missing the deep connection we once had as tribal friends. I believe the life we have been longing for is at fingertips. Friendship, broken down into ten practical components can be applied to virtually every aspect of our lives.
