Decade of Courage Manifesto. Season 2

18 October 2021 by Alison Newman

Following the publication of the first Decade of Courage Manifesto, Decade of Courage Manifesto: Season 2 – The year of change that matters takes us from what was ‘essential’ in 2020, to what really ‘matters’ to us now.

As we move from pandemic to endemic, now is the time to collectively ask: ‘What kind of world of work do we want?’; and to craft a new vision for the decade ahead. In this highly-anticipated follow on, Paul Miller, CEO and Founder of DWG, sets out his thinking on how we can make the most of this opportunity for change, with seven reflections for a workplace that matters.

This second instalment retains the key elements from the first Manifesto:

  • Courage – as the central player that can feed us all
  • Manifesto – a playbook with guidelines
  • Examples – stories that teach us lessons

while also introducing some new ones:

  • Hybrid leadership – how leaders could/should evolve in the endemic era
  • Stockholm Workplace Syndrome – what happens when we fall in love with our captors?
  • What’s on the beach when the waves disappear – what happens when work itself is in the spotlight?
  • Rites of passage – why organizations need to acknowledge what has been lost in order to move on creatively.

This is not a decade for the faint of heart; it is proving to be very much the Decade of Courage.
