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

We are living through a time of unprecedented global change. Like it or not, huge changes are taking place in 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 next, where, or when. But it is clear that the world is becoming more complex and unpredictable, not less. And over the next 12 months the rate of change is set to increase, not decrease.

But this time of Churning won’t last forever — it is a transitional phase to something better, as you will understand by the time you have finished this book.

Because this time of change is forcing us to learn new frameworks and new tools for leading ourselves through change: for learning how to become antifragile so that we can use change to become stronger.

This is Inner Leadership

Is the rate of change in your life today higher, lower, or the same as it was five years ago? Over the next 12 months, do you expect that rate of change to decrease or increase? Would it be useful to start learning now, ways lead yourself and others better through this time of increased change?


Adapted from Inner Leadership: a framework and tools for building inspiration in times of change.
