Join a LEx GlobalCircle

Screen_Shot_2019-07-03_at_4_36_42_PM.png

We all share three realities. We all live somewhere that we call home. We all share a passion (often, more than one). And we all share the future.

With LEx LocalCircles, we provide the instruments to impact the breadth, scale and scope of our communities. With LEx GlobalCircles (LEx GC’s), we provide the scaffolding to nurture and leverage our passions to impact 15 spheres-of-impact that in turn define the human experience. Together, they are the means by which we will assure the future.

Like LocalCircles, a foundational element of GlobalCircles is to CONNECT accomplished people in a global community, and then EMPOWER those people to MOBILIZE and TRANSFORM leadership narratives, cultures and practices consistent with the spirit and substance of the LEx Tenets.

And in the same way that LocalCircles are more than just venues for professional networking and furthering members’ personal and enterprise success by developing and managing Projects, GlobalCircles will create, nurture and support Missions that advance the LEx community and leadership initiatives consistent with the LEx Tenets. The difference is that LEx GCs will function primarily online and the Missions undertaken will fall into one or more of 15 spheres-of-impact. Self-organized and volunteer-run, each LEx GC will be nominally led by a recognized Thought-Leader-in-Residence (TLiR).

The 15 LEx GlobalCircles are:

There are those amongst us who seek to illustrate, challenge and in the process, shape the human narrative. These people are by their nature leaders - in their sharing and provocation willing to risk all and change the world. Are you one of these?

GC Business & Social Economy  

Host Pro Tem: @Lenna Lou  Circle Development Coordinator: @David Janzen 
Today the wealth of the poorest half of the world's population is equal to that of the richest 62 individuals, down from 388 as recently as 2010. And over 800 million jobs may be lost over the next 12 years to the pervasive adoption of AI and robotics technologies. These sobering realities have proven fertile ground for the rise of populist fortunes around the world.

Be it the censure of best-selling rapper Drakes’ behaviour at NBA games, the NFL’s Colin Kaepernick bending the knee in protest of systemic racism, Alyssa Milano’s popularization of the #MeToo hashtag or Coldplay’s Chris Martin donating 10% of his annual income to charity, the power of celebrity has never been greater or more impactful – for good and for bad.

GC Governance & Public Policy  

Host Pro Tem: @John Keller  Circle Development Coordinator: @David Janzen 
From neighbourhood activists to municipal, regional and federal politicians to the leaders of transnational actors, it is increasingly clear that a new cohort of political leaders needs to be connected, empowered and then mobilized that is powerful enough to define and provide leadership and leadership solutions consistent with the LEx Tenets.

Whether the challenge is to make access to healthcare more equitable, to explore options to evidence-based medicine, or to manage the inevitable augmentation of man with machine, there has never been a greater need for enlightened, thoughtful leadership.

GC Human Development  

Host Pro Tem: @Bob Westrope  Circle Development Coordinator: @David Janzen 
There is a space between faith, culture, ideology and the ubiquitous striving to be ones impossible best that is being defined by exponential advances in science and technology and the new realms they make possible. The very definition of what it means to be Human is now open to question. How then do we make sense of the reality we face today, and the unknown that we know we will face tomorrow?

GC Journalism & News Media  

Host Pro Tem: @Daniel Mollenkamp  Circle Development Coordinator: @David Janzen 
FAKE NEWS! THE REAL ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE! These are phrases that have recently joined the lexicon in too many countries. They reflect in part the diminishing of the contract between the Fifth Estate and the citizenry. In the age in which social media is ascendant, it very clearly has reframed that contract with profound consequences – almost certainly determining the material outcome of elections around the world.

GC Law & Social Justice  

Circle Development Coordinator: @David Janzen 
Few if any social-impact organizations are focused on addressing the root-cause that creates the context for their need – an insufficiency of leadership that is systemic and global. Imagine the power of harnessing the aggregate potential of these organizations and their leaders to reframe and empower their relationship with lawmakers and other key stakeholders.

GC Leadership Development & Coaching  

Circle Development Coordinator: @David Janzen 
On Amazon.com there are today over 60,000 titles on leadership, over 60,000 on self-improvement and over 40,000 on coaching (life, performance, executive etc.) – with something like 4 new additions every hour. It follows that with so many contributions, so many ‘3, 5 and 10 step programs to success, wealth, fame and fortune’ that there is no single answer or approach to finding and realizing our full potential.

GC Learning & Education  

Circle Development Coordinator: @David Janzen 
In this Age of Abundance, exponential advances of technology are today transforming the process and structure of education, while the societies they are empowering are themselves being remade – from preparing youth for a world of ‘fake news’ and MOOCs to preparing workers for the inevitable job losses brought about by the disruptive adoption of AI and robotics.

GC National Security & Public Safety  

Circle Development Coordinator: @David Janzen 
Humanity remains existentially challenged by violence and insecurity – from the threat of nuclear Armageddon to the insidious evil implicit in China’s Social Credit program. And though not existential threats, terrorism, regional conflict and domestic violence combine to provide fertile ground for the mis-use of technologies such as AI, robotics and miniaturization.

GC Philanthropy & Social Responsibility  

Host Pro Tem: @Manny Makia  Circle Development Coordinator: @David Janzen
“We live in an Age of Abundance”. This is how the first of our Core Values starts. Through the long march of human progress and the evolution of civil society, there has simply not been enough resource – money, food, water, infrastructure – to go around. At the beginning of this century that changed. With new technologies and the unprecedented accumulation of post-war wealth, we can address virtually every want or need. Which means that It is human factors, not scarcity that constrain us. What then, In this new Age of Abundance, is the role of the citizen, the corporation and the charity/non-profit organization?

GC Science & Technology  

Host Pro Tem: @Darren Harnett Circle Development Coordinator: @David Janzen
Ray Kurzweil’s Law of Accelerating Returns posits that exponential advances in science and technology are reshaping the context for human potential in literally unimagined ways, enabling for the first time in human history, solutions to the most intractable of issues – all in the next 20 years. But are we up to the challenge of leveraging these awesome advances for good?

GC Spirituality & Religion  

Circle Development Coordinator: @David Janzen 
There are no existential issues being addressed by humanity that are not powerfully impacted - even determined - by one's faith, be it in a deity or in man. Indeed, technology will continue to push the limits of what it means to be human, inevitably reframing ones relationship to his or her creator.
