Metamodern Leadership: A History of the Seven Values That Will Change the World
Metamodern Leadership outlines the seven values that identify the character of our future leaders based on the circumstances that make the Millennial Generation who they are. It is at once an attempt to implore youth to seize their potential by tying their values to ancient wisdom, as well as a warning to everyone else to understand the impacts of disregarding the inevitable tendencies of a very distinct new demographic. This is the untold story of the personal responsibility required of the Millennial Generation, against the messaging and memes that portray them as entitled and lazy. It is an optimistic and pragmatic interpretation on the leadership mandates in the near future. The ancient virtue of leadership required broad knowledge as the basis for critical thinking and self-examination. The late twentieth century required myopic versions of leadership, which neglected the truths of centuries of wisdom. Our younger generations will lead and follow based on new foundations that seem counterintuitive to most yet will be the status quo within a decade. This distinction will lead to pragmatism and problem solving for the future rather than the dogma and gridlock of today. We will require a generation of leaders who can once again link the complexities of the future with the ancient wisdom of progress.
