A Common Vision
I wrote A Common Vision with the intent that it could benefit, directly or indirectly, many people. Among other topics, it emphasizes mutual respect for all, regardless of origin, wealth, entitlement, or status. It delves into various aspects of life with special emphasis on business leadership, management, and other entities. We must realize that continuous personal and leadership improvements are critical factors for current and future success. Denying these basic factors should not be an option.
The suggestions offered here are the result of my many years of diverse experience during various modes of survival. I draw from experiences in a third-world country to involvements in corporate business management and a host of additional scholastic and practical life experiences.
This writing touches on integrity, ethics, dignity, and spirituality and on the awakenings of morality, with subtle denouncements of global immoralities. It addresses some key business and leadership principles, which are broken into twelve sections. Each section addresses the layers of business structures and the vari ous processes in global business management. In this book, I humbly yet emphatically suggest additional and alternative methods of business operations and further discuss efficiency and waste reduction issues. The intent of this book is to encourage people in businesses to
reflect on their daily operations and to honestly compare their methods of operation to those of an imaginary ideal company. Further, all people should take inventory of themselves, sincerely judge their respective behaviors in all categories, and decide for themselves who they really are, how they are perceived by others, and the legacies they will leave of their earthly existences. The book includes secular, political, social, corporate, spiritual, cultural, and other aspects of human life and people’s associations with their daily environments.
