By Floyd Carlson (USA)

The shift that is driving leaders to become more impactful is that we all desire more consciousness and connection in our lives, and especially from our leaders. We are yearning to feel inspired, but are often surrounded by poor examples of leadership. We see everything from leaders leaving a legacy of long lasting emotional scars to many leaders being average at best and being unmemorable. When I ask the question, what percentage of the leaders in your career, would you want to work for again, I get less than 27%.
