The 21 Principles of 21st Century Leadership: Core Principles
Leadership is a skill that can be learned by anyone. Nobody knows how to drive, cook or build a house when they are born; these are skills that are learned over time. In the same way, leadership is a skill that you learn, not something that you are born with. Leadership is relevant in all areas of Human activity, from family to community to business, politics and education. If there are people who need to work together to achieve a common goal and cope with challenging change then leaders are needed. One of the key challenges of today is the way that leaders lead needs to change. Leaders need to move away from the traditional ideas of reductionism, linear processes and hierarchy and move towards systems thinking, coping with uncertainty and using networks to organize people.
