Abstract

The article is based on the book “EmpowerUs: From Crisis to Strategic Harmony” [Kaufman I, Srića V. (2020)].1 It discusses the Strategic Harmony as a new mindset or a mental framework for dealing with the main global problems and issues. In other words, it is a “fix society” model based on transformative leadership. It starts with an attempt to rediscover the core values that should drive leader's behavior and lead to better outcomes. We call them the TEST values (Trust, Empathy, Sustainability and Transparency). They should be combined with Transformative Love as a tool to overcome any discord, organizational conflict or other source of broken institutions, and relationships involving humans. Also, the TEST values should be applied together with Transformative Power, the passion and commitment to one's values that potentiates and increases the potential for transformation that leads to Strategic Harmony. Global transformation starts as self-reflection aimed to find innovative ways to unify around completing goals and achieving Strategic Harmony. A new generation of leaders driven by TEST values and transformative love and power could serve as catalyzers of needed global changes.
