My Thoughts on Selecting World Leaders

I feel a Global Governing Body might become necessary if the earth is to survive rogue nations and address things such as a changing environment, economic inequality, world population explosion, national border issues, and even the threat of future pandemics. These challenges are as complex as they are widespread and yet affect us all.

Here are my ideas regarding a difficult question: Who would be qualified to serve on a “World Governance Body?” Consider the following as a “brainstorming” session with myself.

One of the necessary attributes is the quality of their relationships with their key people and others. This should be evaluated over at least 25 years of working with others as a leader. Over time, They would have created several Inner Circles, building them to the point that the people who make up their present Inner Circle can effectively problem-solve and lead as required. In other words, a highly effective group of individuals who can work together as one body.

Financial success is not a qualification that should be considered. I think a candidate’s attitude and behavior towards people are paramount. Are they noteworthy leaders adept at nurturing and growing others? Do they earnestly seek growth and are willing and able to provide the necessary environment for this to happen? Their history provides the answers.

I believe that the selection of those who would serve be from among the few leaders that have, for at least 25 years, given themselves to people and not to financial accumulation. While both achievements are possible, I’m not sure they’re compatible. While many of the world’s population might feel that those who are immensely successful, powerful, or charismatic are the most attractive candidates for a position in a world government, the best qualification must be years upon years of growing and caring for people. Financial success must have no hand in this.

Sy Ogulnick received a BA from UCLA, Teacher’s Credential from Los Angeles Board of Education and completed phase I (Master’s portion) in a Doctor of Behavioral Science program at California Coast University. Sy leased and operated a summer day camp in LA. He and his wife then purchased virgin wilderness land in Northern CA, where they built and operated a coed summer camp. They moved to Las Vegas, NV, and purchased, built and operated a community children’s program for families staying in a major resort casino in Las Vegas. They have created programs for children nationwide that employed many people and in the process developed successful training programs for personnel. This led Sy to lecture on how to train staff and the creating of community within the workplace. Sy was then invited to speak at professional conferences on how best to hire and train employees, which led to his becoming a consultant in the art of improving relationships in a work environment and eventually to his epiphany that “Leaders are the primary problem and the answer to the personnel issues that arise in the workplace.” Sy has written numerous papers on the subject of interpersonal relationships, leadership and power. He has lectured throughout the United States, has been interviewed by the media and has appeared on many radio and TV talk shows
