As I reflect back on Doug and the phenomenal, quiet influence he had on our discussions, I believe he embodies what Daniel Pink is talking about: the whole-brained leader - that rare alchemy of linear analysis and intuition; someone who cracks the code of possibility because knowledge IQ and emotional IQ are working in tandem. Cognition. Imagination. Compassion. Care. Uplift.
I want to be this kind of leader: the kind of leadership that seems to claim no gender, no race, no limitation. If we're truly in Act III on this planet, what does that mean for you, wherever you are leading, in the workplace, at home, in ministry, as an entrepreneur?
For me, it means a whole lot of hope - and that there's a brand new adventure I get to go on. Sign me up!
