Leadership in a complex world
The contemporary world is highly interconnected and interdependent.
This complexity leads each of us to constantly face compromises…, unexpected events, ambiguities and paradoxes. And our choices can have systemic effects for the entire community in which we operate and potentially global consequences.
Expressing leadership in the digital age means developing an awareness of the context in which we operate, thus being able to interpret reality, observe it from multiple points of view and minimize the negative effects of our actions on the system.
In short, leadership means above all “thinking well” and “acting for the common good”.
“Thinking and acting well” is the basis of the concept of wisdom. *
It means using intelligence, creativity, and knowledge to achieve a common goal by balancing personal, interpersonal, and extra-personal interests.
It means governing the short- and long-term effects, adapting to the environment and modifying it to make it more favourable to the desired result.
