Be a Leader of the Future — Today

Maybe it's just me, but do you ever grow weary of yet another list of top traits, behaviors, and tasks for effective leadership?

Is it different from the dozens or hundreds of other articles and lists you've read over the last many years?

Leadership gets a lot of attention these days, but everyone is saying the same thing at some level, and not much changes.

There's a lot of focus on leadership traits, behaviors, and things for leaders to do, but one critical piece has been missing:

"It's about making a better person of self," says the late Dee Hock, founder and CEO emeritus of Visa.

In today's world, effective leadership has more to do with who you are than what you do.

The first necessary step in making ourselves better leaders begins by learning how to lead ourselves and be better people. And we do that by starting the journey inside.

In Be a Forward Thinking Leader of the Future — Today, I explain why and how to take the journey inside.

I believe there are five key things to understand and address to build new structures for effective leadership in the 21st century:

1. Recognize the Real Problem

We’ve become very good at learning new things, but how do we unlearn? We’ve been unknowingly programmed by over 400 years of Industrial Age thinking and practices.

2. Look, Listen Within

Today's always-on and fast-paced world drowns out our inner voice. How do we turn off the noise, so we begin to listen and access our own greater wisdom?

3. Create a Better Self

We are highly skilled at being more productive and getting things done, but what about our integrity, character, ethics, and state of being?

4. See the Boundaries

Our perception of the world changes when we become more aware of our boundaries. We become less limited by our previous understanding.

5. End the Dysfunction

Humanity faces enormous challenges that threaten life as we know it today. Our current level of consciousness allows these issues to persist.
