As the pace of business and competition increase, leaders need to respond in kind; learning how to surf instead of trying to control the waves. The future of leadership lies in collaboratively cultivating ecosystems that allow emergence and growth to thrive. Modern leaders need to facilitate continuous change by seeing their organization as a system while simultaneously embracing uncertainty.
