Tomorrow's Leaders: #WeAreOpen to Change

That's the leadership we need.  The leadership we have, by and large, sadly, is moving in the opposite direction.

They aren't interested in being aware - that's too much like committing sociology.

Trust isn't something they feel the need to earn - they figure it'd owed them by virtue of being in charge.

Credibility, character, integrity are seen as buzz words to be spun, not values to be lived.

Fortunately, this isn't the whole story.

There are a ton of people out there who aren't leaders, in the traditional sense (big titles, lots of brand) but are leaders in the truest sense of the word.  Right now, they're out there trying to engage, empower and support the next generation of leaders who will, ideally, be hybrids - brand-savvy but wholly committed to growing their communities.

Polling keeps telling us that we, the people, are open to change and not overly fond of the different shades of status-quo currently on the menu.

Something for tomorrow's leaders and the people looking to support them should keep in mind.
