Change is all around us. Bestselling author Mark C. Thompson says the only way we grow is when we start to be willing to embrace those changes, and that usually creates a little bit of struggle. When we think about change, we have the resources and we have the means to change within our hearts and souls and our own experience. Mark talks about the growth mindset, team engagement, and driving change in order to accelerate the leadership journey and grow faster.
Leadership has always been integrally related with culture in that leaders create cultures, but then cultures are what determine what kinds of leadership are acceptable. That leads to why Edgar and Peter Schein wrote Humble Leadership. Edgar is a former professor at MIT and he created a model of organizational culture that identifies distinct levels of culture. Peter is the Co-Founder and COO for Organizational Culture and Leadership Institute providing OD and leadership consulting and coaching services. They discuss how leadership has to change as the world has changed towards complexity, more teamwork, and more collaboration.
