12 Learning the Ten Future Leadership Skills Yourself
It is often the statement made with an eye to the future that is most suspect. JULIAN BARNES IN THE SENSE OF AN ENDING
I WANT TO END this second edition with a focus on what you can do to prepare yourself for the VUCA World of the future—even if you don’t have a progressive leadership development program to attend. Many people asked me after the first edition: “What can I do to develop my own future leadership skills?” This chapter is my response to that question. Leaders can make the future if they have the right skills. Leaders can even win over skeptics who view these statements about the future as suspect. Making the future is much better—and often easier—than talking about it.
