In an Increasingly Globalized World, Cooperation is an
Imperative, says CEO & International Speaker
Whether we like it or not as Americans, the world is changing. Berny Dohrmann, an entrepreneur and international speaker, says we should like it.
“Embracing change is at the heart of the spirit of cooperation, which I believe to be at the heart of a solution to the problems plaguing humanity,” says Dohrmann, chairman and founder of CEO Space International, and author of “Redemption: The Cooperation Revolution,” (www.ceospaceinternational.com
“Many of us have been taught that competition is the primary feature of our economic system; however, the most salient common denominator for all successful human interaction features is just the opposite – it is cooperation.”
Removing competitive thinking and replacing it with cooperative thinking opens us up to developing alliances that elevate what we do, rather than strategies that aim to take down our competitors, Dohrmann says.
“Cooperative thinking is the ultimate virus-removal program for the mind,” he says. “Cooperative action helps resolve individual problems and, in the long run, can resolve the problems of the entire world.”
Dohrmann describes some issues we face that would benefit from cooperative thinking:
“This is a staggering dynamic of stupidity in our society,” he says. “Whether we like it or not, humans have taken chemicals to alter their experience since recorded history; it’s like we’ve declared war on human nature. There is certainly a better cooperative solution to this problem, and others.”
