Summer, 2020
Dear Friends,

I hope this mid-summer greeting finds you well on all fronts. Although the last three months have been challenging on so many levels, let us resolve to use this time to build our leadership clarity and capacity to be positive role models for all those around us.

Please stay safe and stay healthy,

The State of Leadership Influence
Back in the fall of 2018, I first started thinking about what leadership would look like in 2020. Although the new decade of leadership was months away, I had a strong sense that it would bring many new challenges for leaders everywhere. My curiosity stemmed from my interest in providing leaders with a 2019 roadmap that would help them to be well prepared for whatever leadership challenges 2020 might bring.
To be sure, I could not have imagined the full magnitude of leadership challenges we face today, but I was certain that leaders would be ill prepared for the new decade of leadership if they did not re-examine and even challenge some of their popular notions about leadership.
