  • States were like billiard balls. We tried to prevent them from crashing into each other. We did not, however, look inside them. We did not think we could change what happened inside them, The 2013 world is multi-polar A second rebalancing of power in the world over the past three or four decades has been a shift in power from governments to social actors.Both co-exist but need different kinds of leadership and diplomacy
  • States come apart in Lego world The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Justice and Treasury departments network with their counterparts in other countries. They can network or partner or make an alliance with social actors. Governments can be taken apart, put together with corporations, foundations, NGOs, church groups, universities, or any number of social actors in any number of different coalitions.
  • Power and leadership Traditionally we think of power in hierarchies and power is by command, by controlling agendas and structuring options or preferences. The Lego world is a networked world, a horizontal world. It is a web. Power is exercised from the center, not the top. – you cannot command, so you mobilize – the most connected person is the person who can mobilize everybody else Leadership in the Lego world follows a “connect and orchestrate” model.
