Why we need a new approach to leadership in a time of change

We are living through a time of unprecedented global change. Like it or not, huge changes are happening in our politics, the economy, technology, society, and of course the environment.

Ten years ago most of these changes were barely on our radars. Now they are the new normal.

We can’t predict exactly what will happen, where, or when. But it is clear that the world is becoming more complex and more unpredictable, not less so. And the rate of that change is increasing, not decreasing.

But this time of Churning is bringing us an opportunity to learn new frameworks and tools for leading ourselves and each other through change: learning how to become antifragile and use change to become stronger. This is Inner Leadership.

And the faster we learn these new tools, the sooner this time of Churning will become a transitional phase to something better — as you will understand by the time you have finished the book.

Is the rate of change in your life today higher, lower, or the same as it was five years ago? Over the next 6 months, do you expect that rate of change to decrease or increase? Would it be useful to start learning new ways lead yourself and others better through this time of increased change?
