21st Century Leadership with David Pendleton

David makes the provocative point that most of the ideas about great leadership were created in the last century; and yet things are very different now.  With characteristic energy, and enjoyable debate, David will explore what it takes to lead in the 21st century. Look out for the idea of being an “incomplete leader”!

Most current ideas about leadership have their origins in the 19th and 20th centuries when the world was a very different place.  Huge changes in technology, geo-politics, demography and business have rendered many ideas obsolete or irrelevant.

This session focuses on ideas created in and for the 21st century where the world is moving at pace and in unpredictable directions.  It explains the Primary Colours Approach to leadership on which David wrote the book.

It describes the need for complete leadership but embraces the notion of incomplete leaders, demonstrating why this is inevitable and working with its consequences. It distinguishes between natural strengths, potential strengths, fragile strengths and resistant limitations, challenging participants to be realistic about the capabilities they bring to leadership and those on which they depend on others, making a virtue of openness.  Its implications make us rethink how 21st century leadership needs to function and to be developed: in teams.
