The world is changing, towards ever increasing levels of globalization and interconnection. This isn’t a scoop for the new generations since for them it is simply part of their everyday lives. This isn’t a scoop either for many start-ups, who design themselves around the unsatisfied needs of individuals or organizations. On the other hand, it is a (r-)evolution for traditional businesses, since what may have brought them success yesterday could be their downfall tomorrow. In general, the business world owes itself to progress.

The world is changing, and so are leaders; the all-powerful leader, who dictates from his ivory tower is no more, or rather should not be; The risks of disconnection with today’s world are too great. This also impacts the behavior needed to mobilize a team. Influence on the establishment and the ability to listen and constantly question ideas are essential to adapt to ever-changing economic models.
