Philosophy

I believe in the power of human potential. 

 
 
 
 

Betterness Manifesto:

To put people at the heart of our future, to help them find the freedom of personal expression, cultural freedom, economic freedom and social freedom.

To create a society motivated by the growth of human connection, community and sustainability, rather than just capital.

The Four Freedoms®

Identity, Culture, Economics, Ecosystem

 
 
 

I have developed the four freedoms as a framework to enable people and organisations to be more HUMAN in an increasingly digital and technological world. To recognise that your greatest asset is your ability to make choices, to understand your individual and collective value and to adapt their behaviours to create sustainable and impactful change.

 

Personal expression

Transformation begins by examining and understanding the why, who, what, where, when and how of ones identity and values. The labels one choses to accept, wear or reject. Bridging the gap between internal beliefs and external narratives enables people to bring their full-selves to each environment.

To be unapologetically themselves.

To be human.

Cultural freedom

Inclusive cultures, systems and structures (technological, social, business, economic, political) empower individuals to flourish leading to an organic paradigm shift in beliefs, values and behaviours.

Inclusivity is more transformational than diversity.

Economic freedom

Numbers count, and yet they only tell part of the story. Human measures such as passion and impact have a greater bearing on motivation, happiness, innovation and sustainable financial growth.

Social freedom

Creativity and innovation flourish in organic ecosystems, where there is an appreciation of the value, contribution and impact of every human in the system. 

Social freedom occurs (or is enhanced) when people or organisations are in a state of flow; when the previous three freedoms (personal expression, culture and economics) are addressed and introduced, moving it from one of surviving to thriving.

Welcome to a conscious Anthropocene - the age of conscious humans.
