"Today, the defining skills of the previous era — the ‘left brain’ capabilities that powered the Information Age — are necessary but no longer sufficient. And the capabilities we once disdained or thought frivolous —
the ‘right brain’ qualities of inventiveness, empathy, joyfulness, and meaning —
increasingly will determine who flourishes and who flounders."
- Daniel Pink

"An organization’s success is dependent upon true leadership, not just efficient management. The emerging workplace is more uncertain; change has sped up; and customers have become notoriously fickle because they have frictionless access to a wealth of shared information, reviews, and ratings.
This increased volatility requires companies to become more agile in running their entire business enterprise. This in turn necessitates leadership that can change direction and operations quicker than the competition, management that is just as agile, and creative catalysts that stay well ahead of the curve."
