The Leader of Tomorrow: Nowadays, social policies have been rendered of secondary importance. The socioeconomic state of European countries calls for a new form of leadership: one which will give rise to economic development and progress and drive individuals and organisations to a dignified place. Through proper allocation and management of available resources, the word ‘abundance’ might eventually regain its initial meaning and become part of our everyday vocabulary.
Biased views by mass media, demoralized governments and organisations, as well as bureaucracy and financial irresolution are only a few of the features comprising today’s reality.
It is a challenge that contemporary leaders must rise up to.
Whether we are gradually moving towards new forms of leadership by individuals who are treating society in the same way they used to manage their organisations, and whether success will eventually come are questions yet to be answered. The fact remains that many political leaders have failed.
Indeed, this does not imply that successful managers or individuals who effectively resolve challenging issues should be deemed as heroes; neither does it mean that successful organisations/businesses should be compared to political governments, since management of a country is far more complex than that of an organisation.
The leaders of tomorrow are envisaged as some sort of heroes who are expected to effectively overcome anything that stands in the way of progress.
It is hard to think of how societies will look like in 10-15 years‘ time and what models will be adopted by given leaders. One thing is for sure. Various backgrounds (political leadership, sports, art) give rise to different leadership models and what is likely to prevail in the end is whatever makes people happy and less stressed about survival.
Is this possible? No one knows. Is it unrealistic? Probably. Somehow too Christianity-oriented? Maybe.
In any case, things can only get better
