This week’s focus point: I was in London just before the referendum on independence for Scotland. I find it ironic that many entities are seeking more tribalization in a world where communities will dominate. Globalization is not a vague term, but an indicator that success and power rest on an interacting world. (My extreme way of looking at it is that there are six billion potential retail customers out there!) Europe is trying to achieve community in order to continue to compete economically on the world stage. The U.S. has long been referred to as a “melting pot” or “mosaic” where diverse people can maintain their identity while working within a common set of community values. Many of you reading this work alone, or with small groups. Affiliation needs are important, be they with family, colleagues, clients, or others. I always thought it was a negative to be “voted off the island” on Survivor!
