What does it take to be a great leader?

This is such a tired question, but stick with me.  The follow up questions posed by Roselinde Torres, BCG in her TED Talk stopped me.  I absolutely love what she challenges us to consider:

  1. Where are you looking to anticipate the next change to your business model or your life?
  2. What is the diversity measure of your personal and professional stakeholder network?
  3. Are you courageous enough to abandon a practice that has made you successful in the past?

Imagine what we could accomplish if we spent more time exploring these questions. What could your organization achieve if you were surrounded by people “preparing themselves not for the comfortable predictability of yesterday, but also for the realities of today and all the unknown possibilities of tomorrow”?
