leadershiplanguageThe evolution of leadership from autocratic to inclusive is a journey that many leaders are still looking to master. Making the change from a mindset of authority and power towards a mindset of sharing successes and equalization of power is a big one. One of the key ingredients of leading change is the ability to lead with the new leadership language that is required to inspire and engage today's workforce and to set the tone for the future workplace.  
hbrcoverleaders If there is one thing that CEO's tell me they are looking for right now its great leaders. An IBM survey in 2012 stated that companies main focus is technology. With the increase on focus on technology there is an increased need for extraordinary leadership. Leaders who can skillfully maneuver the fast paced change of technology AND have increased agility in leading change and influencing teams to greater results is increasingly hard to find. Why? In my research and focus groups on what makes a great leader it seems that the skills of what USED to constitute a great leader have not been upgraded. With the influx of technology there is a whole bunch of leaders using outdated skills - all leaders need to upgrade the leadership OS in order to be a GREAT leader in today's reality. What does that mean and what will it take to find the great leaders that are out there?
consciousbusiness The concept of conscious business has been around for a while. Many believe that Anita Roddick pioneered the conscious business movement with her company, The Body Shop in 1976. This company has been an environmental leader, and worked to support various activist causes including putting an end to animal testing, and defending human rights. An overwhelming amount of conscious businesses can be found in the health food industry as well as the LOHAS (lifestyles of health and sustainability) market. However, today conscious businesses can be found emerging in almost all aspects of the business world.
2014 has been a year of technological innovations, increasing speed of change and leaders working to stay abreast of changes while innovating, engaging teams and growing the business. The biggest shift for businesses from 2014 to 2015 is a shift to doing business in a new way, an evolutionary way that includes upgrading the leadership OS.
