With the increase in change and the rapid growth in complexity, to prepare yourself for the 21st century, you will need to be continually learning and reinventing yourself again and again. You will have to develop and have mental flexibility, accepting that change is your only certainty. Those who thrive will need to be able to learn new things and be able to comfortably maintain a supportive mental balance.
Simply put, you will have to get to know yourself and be upgrading you operating system so that you are using technology rather than the algorithms of technology using you. This is immensely important if you are to have authority over your own life and direction.
There are four main pillars of competency that support you to thrive in this 21st Century world.
The Four C’s
Critical Thinking: The result of developing integrated, whole brain thinking.
Communication: This is not the old fear-based, self-centered communication to get what you want and need, but open hearted, supportive communication that expresses empathy and compassion and ways to bring out the best in all involved.
Collaboration: This evolves from being open to feedback and letting others know they are a vital part of what is being created as well as the bigger picture mission of an organization or on a societal level. In essence, you relate to your team in such a way that they know they are wanted, they are needed, they belong, and we are fulfilling this meaningful mission together.
Creativity: Enhanced and empowering creativity comes first from integrated, whole brain thinking, but is taken to entirely new levels of genius with access to higher-mind or Big Mind connection.
This new educational model is precisely what is available to you in the leadership programs I offer. As your transformational guide, I support you in upgrading your mind, expanding your consciousness to become that conscious leader, and creating a fulfilled and inspired life. This is what is required for us to create an environmentally and socially supportive environment. One where we can not only survive, but also where the world and its inhabitants holistically prosper and thrive.
