Had a blast speaking this week at two Athena awards events (chambers of commerce recognizing a great female leader). The courage of women leading is fascinating to me. Because I am the (slightly) above average man behind a great woman – who is work with a majority of male leaders – I have a curious vantage point on men and women leading. Audiences seem to love it. I’d love to speak to men too, because we are also leading in a whole new world – at home – and need to talk about it more. Thoughts? Opportunities?
The other speech that has been very popular lately is “leading through sustained crisis.” We know a lot about that in Michigan and in manufacturing. But dramatic changes are affecting schools, the recording business, and how about the impact on newspapers!!! This new circumstance requires a different kind of leadership.
