"We live in an extremely polarised world where people, ideas, and organisations are quickly judged and either passionately loved or hated. As if the world has turned black and white and lost all its nuances. Nuances can be found in the subtle differences in our views or to hold space that allows us to hear each other through the innate power of conversations.
When we see the world as only black and white – this breeds idealised solutions rooted in all forms of extremism, populism and totalitarianism. These idealised solutions we seemingly resonate with do not drive regeneration or move the needle on creating real change. We, human beings live in a paradox. (Eg: the same person demonstrating against climate change might take a plane tomorrow to go on a holiday.) In short, the regeneration journey starts with ourselves, individuals.
At Earthworm, we live between two worlds: we work with people in companies and people in NGOs. With CEOs of large corporations and with farmers. With agricultural businesses leaders and communities. The bottom line, they rely on each other. In the end, it is their voice, carrying their decisions, motivated by their values, that makes a difference in our world. And that is leadership.
Leading to Impact is a video series that aims to share the voice of those leaders. We want to share what their journey looks like. Their challenges, struggles and aspirations, so they can inspire you, or others, to speak up and act. We hope you’ll like it."
