Characteristics of Needed Leaders: Views as a Young Global Leader

Posted by jembendell on March 12, 2012

Here’s a clip of an interview I did at the World Economic Forum when accepting being made a 2012 Young Global Leader. I was asked about characteristics or attributes of needed leaders today.

For my views on the dimensions of leadership, i.e. the skills, processes and relationships of good leadership, rather than the leaders, see my blog from last year: “Leadership beyond Leaders”

Information on why Im a YGL and what it means is in Lifeworth’s announcement on the subject.

    I’m not sure that trauma leads to open-mindedness. In my experience it has a lot more to do with curiosity, a certain zest for knowledge and embracing diversity, understanding that different is good, different is not a threat, it does not undermine who we are or what we are. And, of course, understanding that, at the end of the day, there is no point in being right.
