Becoming Business Leader Future
One reader (Thanks, Alex!) asked about what kinds of opportunities would help us develop the skills referred to in Business Leader Future.
I recommend that we continue to look for opportunities to:
- Increase our thinking complexity
- Broaden our ethical awareness
- Learn to collaborate using today’s tools
- Treat others with care
- Understand global expectations for ethical business and leadership
- Learn to communicate using the new social channels
- Use systems thinking and mind mapping for solving complex problems
- Continually learn and adapt as the world changes
- Learn (and teach others) how to respect each other and our differences
- Learn across disciplines to get the complete picture
