Leading in the 21st century requires an artful blend of “same as it ever was” and “you’ve never seen this before.” As a leader, you must master the emotional intelligence, decision-making, and risk analysis skills that have always been critical to success—but do so in an environment of constant change and frequent turbulence. Those you lead will be more geographically, socially, and generationally diverse than at any other time in the workforce. And yet accountability and expectations have never been higher. Eric McNulty shares his extensive experience and proven techniques for instituting effective leadership.
