  34. 34. Leadership  – traditional  thinking A  leader’s  job  is  to  anticipate  the  future,  to  identify  the   trends  that  will  affect  their  organization,  and  to  guide  and   inspire  people  to  move  toward  a  better  reality.   Today  more  than  ever,  this  job  requires  leaders  to  grasp  the   rapid  rate  of  change  in  the  business  world  and  to  build  an   organisationthat’s  capable  of  continually  adapting. -­‐ Nancy  Duarte  &  Patti  Sanchez,  Duarte  Inc.  17  Feb,  2016 “
  35. 35. Leadership  – the  reality • Self  leadership   • Decentralised /  distributed   • Agile  /  Adaptable • Facilitator  /  enabler • Co-­‐creator  /  ideator • Collaborative  /  Interactive • Organism  mindset  /  Ecosystem  mindset
  36. 36. New  Leadership  Mindset OLD Organisation = organism  mindset • Network  is  inside  the  building • Siloed,  non-­‐questioning • Slow  to  adopt,  no  adaptation NEW Organisation =  ecosystem   mindset • Network  is  outside  the  building   • Interactive,  always  asking  “is   our  network  working?” • Fast  to  adopt  and  adapt

  40. 40. Collaboration
  41. 41. Collaboration Collaboration  is  important  not  just  because  it's  a  better  way   to  learn.  The  spirit  of  collaboration  is  penetrating  every   institution  and  all  of  our  lives.   So  learning  to  collaborate  is  part  of  equipping  yourself  for   effectiveness,  problem  solving,  innovation  and  life-­‐long   learning  in  an  ever-­‐changing  networked  economy.   Don  Tapscott “
