Social Business – Rethinking Innovation, Organization and Leadership Over the course of the last few weeks I have been engaging on a good number of conversations around the subject of Leadership (Which I am hoping to be talking about plenty more very soon, by the way, once a publication makes it out there in the next couple of weeks…), and how social networking is changing the way we view traditional management / leadership moving along from a command-and-control attitude into one of leaders as servants, which clearly comes to define, in my opinion, the next generation of leaders 2.0 for the 21st century. But, I am sure you may be wondering, what would it look like, right? How do we identify those new, emerging leaders both within the workplace, as well as in our own societies?
