The old leadership model is giving way to a new twenty-first-century paradigm for navigating in an age of uncertainty, complexity, interdependency, globalization, and accelerating change. Drawing from chaos theory, nonlinear dynamics, quantum mechanics, and other disciplines, the author sees the emergence of three new creative roles for leaders—social artist, spiritual visionary, and cultural innovator—which call for a new leadership mindset, and for tapping the powers of the heart. A new holistic skill set with eleven domains encompasses the values, perspectives, and competencies needed to lead organizations and employees to their full potential in the new century.
