Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, February 9, 2013 11:14 AM

Leadership is fluid and is never outdated. What I am not seeing is the shift from management to leadership. It certainly is not happening where I work and live. The trust question and answer is revealing. He does not use the word narcissism, but it is in evidence and growing. What will that do for the next generation?

 

Tom Hood's comment, February 10, 2013 8:05 AM
Love the curator insights (Amy & donhornsby) "I think this is the greatest sentence ever written on leadership: “The task of a leader is not to put greatness into people, but to draw it out, because the greatness is there already.” That’s what a true leader thinks. We have a responsibility to the world to play a leading part in growing and developing good leaders and leaders for good." and (From the article): Half the world’s population is 25 years or under, so we have an immense job of sowing the seeds for the next generation of leaders.-
John Adair - Thanks!
Tom Hood's curator insight, February 10, 2013 8:16 AM

In our five years working with the CPA Profession's best and brightest young leaders (AICPA, MACPA, UACPA, LSCPA Leadership Academies), I worry that many of our current leaders are not taking the responsibility to develop new leaders fast enough. Yet when you get these young leaders in a room, it is easy to pull their greatness out of them.


What can we do to develop more leaders fast enough as two baby boomers will retire for every Gen-Xer available to replace them?


Love the curator insights:
