Welcome to the Nu Leadership Revolution! This blog explores the changing workforce and social environment as it relates to emerging leaders. The status quo will not do! “Nu” represents a change from the old ways of doing things at least for emerging leaders.
Our lives continue to unravel as things we believe in disintegrate before our eyes. Institutions are failing. Personal conduct is at an all time low. Wall Street continues to prosper as Main Street bears the financial hardship for our country.
Everyone is impacted–from the executive to the factory worker. According to the Conference Board research group, only 45% of Americans are satisfied with their work. This was the lowest level ever recorded by this group over 22 years of researching this area. One major reason cited was that workers do not find their jobs interesting. In order to be more competitive, organizations need to retool and inspire workers to new levels of performance. Clearly, organizations need good leadership.
What is needed, however, is a different kind of leader during these times of uncertainty. How can you become a stronger, more effective leader? I feel this revolution will start with a fresh, positive outlook from a new kind of engaging leader. Kevin Kelly, who helped launched Wired Magazine, noted,
“Wealth in the new regime flows directly from innovation, not optimization; that is, wealth is not gained by perfecting the known, but by imperfectly seizing the unknown.”
