Five reflections for modern leaders
The world is constantly changing. We are finding out that "tried and tested" ways of the past are no longer fit for what lays ahead. The journey is challenging and fun and each one of us has to discover it for ourselves. I have had the good fortune to work with many who inspired my growth. Now I want to share with you the five reflections, five transitions, that were particularly helpful for me, so you don't have to start from scratch. It may be challenging, we may disagree and you may learn something new. Be ready to shift your perspective.
"The best a leader can do is understand the conditions creating a climate of growth and do everything possible to irrigate."
