The 21st Century Leader

Leadership in the 21st century is more challenging and demanding than ever before. Incessant change, fierce competitiveness, and daunting complexities in a topsy turvy world easily chew up would-be leaders. It takes a whole and integrated person who can communicate and team-build, who knows the formula for getting results, is change-able, and understands the sustainable principles of growth.

We don’t go anywhere these days without a GPS.  We’ve even mapped the moon, the ocean bottom, Mars, but what about ourselves?  In these fast-changing times, we need a human roadmap more than ever so that we know our center, who we are, where we are in consciousness, how and when to tap which inner resources, how to manage blocks and detours, where to go within ourselves to achieve our goals, and what are your life-destinations, anyway? Otherwise, we are lost in choices, distractions, influences, overload, compressed time.  What does our inner compass say, but what compass?

In the old days without much change and complexity, following the roadmap of how to live  according to one’s parents, family and tradition was simple.  And the ancients had astrology, the I Ching, palm readers, oracles, and the like; however, these maps and mediums are too antiquated for our new world of daunting complexity, speed, ambiguity, diversity and constant change.

Some old roadmaps still work today because they present universal, primordial, cross-cultural truths that are a priori to human existence. Personality archetypes found in the myths of yesteryear are still applicable. Mythic stories can still guide us. The story that I have chosen as my life guide is found within the esoteric hermetic tradition of the Fool on the quest to wholeness, represented by Fortune. We all still desire this state of well-being and in fact, we “want it all” (to be sustainably healthy, wealthy, happy, holy, free, at peace, in loving relationships, and more). And we are still Fools, like what do we know anyway? We simply trust the life force and put one foot in front of the other, trusting that we are making progress and attaining our visions and dreams.
