They were certainly not perceived as leaders. Indeed, it seems as though most leaders are extroverts or at least manage to act like an extrovert. But to be an effective leader we extroverts must learn to work more effectively with introverts.

Jeremy Lewis's curator insight, July 31, 2013 3:21 PM

Leading in a complex world a leader must consider immersing him or herself into the environment, study it and then aggressively impliment solution sets that are flexible.  An agile leader then understands the ever changing system and has the speed and flexibility to move in order to remain in front of the changing system.  The leader does this through artful planning and offensive execution that propels an organization through the waves of complexity and onward to success.
