Via this blog posting, I came across this white paper about the changing nature of leadership.
I learned that approaches focusing on flexibility, collaboration, crossing boundaries and collective leadership are expected to become a high priority. The job of today’s leader is to create space for other people – a space in which people can generate new and different ideas; a space where seemingly disparate departments and people in the organization come together and have a meaningful conversation; a space in which people can be more effective, more agile, and more prepared to respond to complex challenges.
Reading the white paper, I also learned that each population’s leadership approach must be developed based on economic, political, and geographic needs. Good leadership is perceived differently across the world.
