Leadership 2012

2011 has been a tumultuous year where we have had the Arab Spring (ongoing), Eurozone crisis (ongoing) Fukushima (ongoing), not to mention riots on the streets of several UK cities, the end of several despots and far too many disasters, the impacts of which are still also ongoing*

2012 is likely to be equally challenging. As this is the time of year when people assemble lists - here is my list for what public service and business leaders need to be focussing on over the next 12 months:
  • Innovate, create, do something different
  • Take risks, be bold, encourage others to do likewise
  • Get involved in social media
  • Delight in diversity - in all of its diversity
  • Harness transparency
  • Expect compliance to come from the inside
  • Lead the future
What would be your top seven?
