The modern business world still seems to glorify the “independent genius” leader. But is that really the way to look at effective leadership? We don’t think so.
This episode is not only our first, but it sets the stage for what is to come in future episodes as we unpack why we believe the Body of Christ is the emergent – and superior – image of business management and leadership.
In this podcast we discuss personal and professional examples that explore the topic of connectedness and how we’re “better together”. We also discuss the biblical foundation of this found in Acts 2 and Romans 12.
We explore modern-day examples of how the “collective” is coming to life in our lives such as Zooniverse (crowdsourced science discovery!) as well as how a Wiki can help organizations solve problems faster and more effectively. We also give a shout out to our friend Gary Hamel, and his book “What Matters Now”, for his “top 12 work-relevant characteristics of the social web” and how the “Facebook generation” has turned leadership expectations upside down (in a great way).
