The principle of good faith
Most people, in most situations, are actually of good faith, have good intentions and moral conscience, from their perspective.
Unfortunately, the impact of their actions on work systems is, however, much more complicated, different from intention, or detrimental to the interests of others.
The clarification of intentions but also the difference from all their real consequences, help to define the optimal actions needed in groups, to fulfill common interests.
The principle of mediocrity*
The controversy is whether we are unique, privileged, or not, either as Planet Earth in the Universe or as the human species in the Earth’s ecosystem.
However, it seems that the role of the human species in the climate system of the planet is incomparably more destructive than of any other known species, “inferior” to the human one. So, is the human species really “superior”? Does it assume the proper role within the biosphere?
Organizations are systems in which large groups of different individuals generate value for society, which no one could create alone. To create value, the individual roles and the correlations between them are strictly necessary, and each one has a specific and needed contribution to the final result. The functions are not superior nor inferior; the performance of the organization is decisively determined by the performance of the majority, not of the exceptions.
* Mediocrity meaning: ordinariness, commonplaceness, adequacy, moderate.
