Devin C. Hughes


Leaders are judged and valued according to the performance of the entire team, not just on their own merits. They are facing increasing pressures. Some are dealing with meeting short-term goals, while others are struggling with integrating innovation into the fabric of their organization. At the same time, trust in leaders is at an old time low. As a result, we need a new generation of leaders who are ready for the 21st century.

How do you transition from top-down hierarchical structure to one based on shared purpose? Devin shares the characteristics of the 21st century leader and how to clear the way for new ideas about what leadership can and should be in the "new normal."
