What will Leadership of the Future Look Like - What do we Need to do to Address the Challenges - Are the Current Leadership Models Outmoded
Many of the problems in the world today are caused by a lack of strong leadership. The sources of these problems aren’t straightforward: a complex web of aged institutional practice, siloed thinking and the outdated policies of current and former generations of leaders have resulted in leadership based on unsustainable principles and outmoded practises. The current practice of leadership is defined by the same principles and thinking that has brought about these practises. New generations of emerging leaders is defying the traditional reins.
There is a widening gap in how current leaders and the youth understand the world. Youth movements are calling for 21st century solutions like micro-commerce, deep democracy and value creation that goes beyond the simple measurement of GDP; while global leaders continue to work with 20th century policy tools.
In this session then, our guest panelists consider whether the current leadership models are appropriate for today, whether a radical change is required or whether we are worrying too much about leadership and it is not the problem.
Panelists will include a number of the executive management listed above.
