Here you have it: “Four Leadership Mindsets Driving the New Economy.” Producers. Investors. Connectors. Explorers. Make of it what you will.
In Roman times, before you got to be a Senator, first you had to do a stint as an officer in the army.

That also means it’s not just about you. If you want to build a successful organization, you have to build an organization of leaders.
Leaders, leading. That’s what it’s all about. That’s what the game is.
And you’re either doing it or you’re not.
