Changing Mindsets
in Organizations

Technology is bringing us a world environment that most of us would not want to lose. Life without our smartphones may increase our time to ‘stop and stare’ and think and reflect, and that would be good; but I doubt many of us would welcome not being able to have their other many benefits for long. So we are torn between a Luddite longing for a quieter more pedestrian age, and the connected, fast-paced, knowledge-filled one we have in our pockets.

For leaders there seems to be a real question around AI, the answer to which we are only likely to know as it evolves. For the last decade the central mantra for leaders has been ‘authenticity’. Being authentic means being true-to-yourself, the proposition being that people respond better to authentic, if occasionally flawed or contradictory, personalities than highly polished, perfected ones.

Issue 26 has insights on and around these and other leadership issues from Ashridge Executive Education, Bath School of Management, CCL, Cranfield School of Management, HEC Paris, Oxford Saïd, UNC Kenan-Flagler and others
