Thoughts on Leadership

Ready Yourself for the Future

Leaders can make the future. Leaders can decide what kind of future they want to create and go for it.

GIVEN THE FUTURE FORCES of the next decade…

Here you can consider your own readiness for the future – given the forces of the next decade – as well as draw some conclusions about leadership in the years to come.

Leadership Questions to Ask Yourself

You now have an opportunity to assess your own readiness for the future. Use the questions below to spark your own thinking about leadership and how you might like to develop yourself as a leader in the future. You have to decide what kind of leader you will want to be, but challenges from the future can bring out more of your own innate leadership gifts. There will be many new skills for future leaders to learn.

Answer the questions below as candidly as you can. The questions are grouped around the ten future leadership skills. They are intended to help you personalize the ten future leadership skills and point to how they might apply to your own leadership development.

These are personal questions. Leadership begins from the inside, from your own values and point of view. Leaders can make a better world, but it will take an inner balance and personal discipline.

Please ponder these questions and think about them personally. These are meant to be discerning questions, but you need to decide what they mean for you.

1: DO YOU HAVE A MAKER INSTINCT?

2: DO YOU COMMUNICATE WITH CLARITY?

3: CAN YOU FLIP DILEMMAS?

4: DO YOU HAVE AN IMMERSIVE LEARNING ABILITY?

5: DO YOU HAVE BIO-EMPATHY?

6: CAN YOU CONSTRUCTIVELY DEPOLARIZE A SITUATION?

7: DO YOU HAVE QUIET TRANSPARENCY?

8: CAN YOU DO RAPID PROTOTYPING?
