The American Humanist Association defines humanism as a progressive philosophy of life that, without theism or other supernatural beliefs, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good.
As the world continues to evolve at warp speed, the responsibilities of running a business have become increasingly complex. It goes without saying that companies must be profitable to remain relevant. However, a company cannot exist without people to drive it. CEOs must acknowledge the humanity of employees in tandem with their unique talents and contributions.
Humanists take responsibility for their own lives and relish the adventure of being part of new discoveries, seeking new knowledge, exploring new options. Instead of finding solace in prefabricated answers to the great questions of life, humanists enjoy the open-endedness of a quest and the freedom of discovery that this entails. They affirm that individuals have the freedom to give meaning, value, and purpose to their lives by their own independent thought, free inquiry, and responsible, creative activity.
The most effective CEOs pass along these philosophies to their people, encouraging everyone to pursue freedom of expression while discovering innovative solutions to business challenges. This approach fosters personal fulfillment as opposed to singular emphasis on profit and performance above all else.
