Once upon a time, in a certain country, I was invited by GlaxoSmithKline to conduct leadership training for their management team. On that note, I walked into a meeting with the HR manager (we had never met). The first thing she said to me was, “You’re young!” She was surprised. I replied, “Yes, I’m young! This is the new face of leadership”.
The leader has changed.
This is an era where leadership comes from anywhere. From singer Justin Bieber, to designer, Jonathan Ive, to Brazilian celebrity chef, Alex Atala. It’s not just the bald president or business executive with years of experience. It’s different now.
We need solutions that work. Anyone with an answer can lead. You don’t need a title, position or ages of experience. Just do your thing and those seeking what you have will acknowledge your skill.
Leadership is YOU. The world is waiting for you to step out and take the initiative to provide solutions. You don’t need approval. Just lead!
