Kindness needs to be embraced as a leadership principle. It is not about being weak. It is about strength in empathy and in civility. Millennial leaders get this, and we need to learn from them.

Once we accept Dwight D. Eisenhower’s sage advice that “Plans are useless, but planning is everything,” we will be ready to adapt to whatever curveballs the twenty-first century sees fit to throw.

Maya Mathias's curator insight, February 2, 2013 3:01 PM

Plan, then experiment and be fluid to changing course.  Adaptive strategy is THE way to succeed in the 21st Century economy.  Thoughts?

Renee Stuart's curator insight, February 14, 2013 10:34 PM

Lose the assumptions...  Love it!
