“What man is he has become through that cause which he has made his own” Karl Jaspers 1883-1969.
Corporate Social Responsibility
These are the skills that transfer the ability for employees to take action in a way that protects and improves the welfare of society and the interests of their organization and “a good reputation is more valuable than money” Publilius Syrus – 1st Century BC.
CSR is not philanthropy. It is about social partnership. However, donors are starting to see philanthropy differently.
- Some are not planning on giving like they used to.
- Their reasons are that it’s too abstract, too distant, too detached when just writing a cheque.
- Adopting an active partnership approach where their people or they decide on partners means they “feel” it as a result.
- People want a voice. In work “Let us know why we are here”? “If you truly value us don’t tell us who to support, let us tell you”?
- The need to feel valued as a human being not as a human resource or a pay limitation equals greater engagement.
- They want reasons and meaning not causes and effect. This is Self Transcendence not Self Actualization.

We offer Diversity Skills
These skills transfer the ability to establish and maintain an organizational workforce that represents a combination of human characteristics appropriate for achieving organizational success. I would change what Nelson Mandela has said in the quote opposite from “learn to hate” to “choose to hate”. Aggression in the workplace is not a human phenomenon, unlike love or hate that are be-cause they are intentional. I have a reason to hate something or a reason to love somebody. On the other hand aggression is due to causes be they of a psychological or physiological nature. Cause and reason are not the same.
