Trust. Probably the most commonly spoken word on the premiere of the book The AEIOU of leadership. Undress, sincerely present everything, even not so shiny facets of the success stories, requires great confidence in the capability of people and also trust in the ability of space to accept all entrusted with respect. The leaders who shared their stories, have this trust.
Respect was probably the second most commonly spoken word, especially in the combination of the respect of the past. The host Janez Škrabec invited us among his ancestors, to the homestaed of the linguist Pater Stanislav Škrabec, who researched vowels. He suggested a vowel system with short and long vowels, and consistently demanded separation in the quality of accented and unagrogenic vowels.
Vowels, who gave the name of the book The AEIOU of LEADERSHIP, are the initials of the words Aroha, Eb, Ikigai, Oikos and Ubuntu. Words stem from indigenous peoples with five continents. The indigenous people were people of nature, consciously linked to their environment and aligned with the rhythms of nature and cosmos. The timeless wisdom given to us by symbols and words carry the knowledge to develop conscius leaders.
