The upper right quadrant deals with what people actually do - their actions, performance and achievements. We’ve illustrated this domain with an image of a female acrobat during mid-routine high above an admiring audience. The insert is of an ancient marble panel from the Acropolis in Athens depicting a contest between man and centaur. The image is ambiguous because, on the one hand, it illustrates a peak of cultural achievement in Greece. On the other, it depicts the theme of continuing conflict that remains all-too-evident today. The two sources behind this image are Clive Hamilton’s perceptive Requiem for a Species and Richard Hames book on The Five Literacies of Global Leadership. Both deal with different aspects of human action in the current context.
