Super wicked problems as well as the globalization are making our world increasingly interdependent – fluidity is the name of the game and uncertainty is guaranteed. New technologies are challenging the command-and-control systems and are supporting organic networks. Swarm intelligence and open sourcing platforms are beginning to allow a shift from “control at the centre” to “creativity at the periphery”. Demographic and societal shifts are creating a generational gap challenging the leader to motivate and inspire in new ways.
As a consequence we will be seeing a new leadership model emerge where the sustainable success of a leader will be subject to the leader’s ability to reflect, be mindfull and inclusive.
I would like to invite you to start a discussion on this blog about the new requirements of leadership as well as about how all of us can support the transition.
