New Paradigm Leadership - Part of BK Way?

I love the way that these two simple pages on New Paradigm Leadership shows both the Top-10 old-school and Top-10 new-school ways of thinking about and building leadership for the 21st century. I'm proud that BK is a social pioneer in fostering this updated worldview on leadership. I count 83 titles that Berrett-Koehler published supporting these ten New Paradigm Leadership themes from 2011 to 2015: 

  1. Organization as Network
  2. Everyone Is a Leader
  3. Collaboration
  4. Meaning/Purpose Driven
  5. Service
  6. Loving/Caring
  7. Diversity/Inclusion
  8. Egalitarian Structures
  9. Information Shared
  10. Whole-Systems Change

Much appreciation to the Annie-Rose London and the BK Foundation in focusing on Young Leadership in building this new framing and to Steve Piersanti in synthesizing this new paradigm model based on wisdom from hundreds of BK Business authors.
