Command-and-control leadership is losing its grip. A new way of thinking is emerging: leadership that embraces change as constant, encourages individual thought, relies on intuition more than data, fluidity more than hierarchy, trust more than fear, and the common good more than profit.
I act as sounding board, coach and strategic advisor to a select number of executives, founders, and companies around the world. Together we are pioneering new territory: not just in business leadership, but in leadership itself.
How can we lead societies with differing politics, languages, and customs? Together we can lead the world in a unified way with dignity and freedom for all.
Can you see your way through to your full potential? What’s beyond the horizon of your business, your career, your identity?
I want to help the leaders of today fulfill that promise tomorrow. Seriously, starting next Monday.
“Tom is at his best one-on-one, in conversation, where he is an excellent listener, keen to understand what I am saying behind the words. He is sensitive to emotions and motivations, connecting personal journeys with the aspiration of the overall business. I always have the sense that Tom has time to care and that my opinion matters, which is a rare talent in such a busy world!”
“Tom has been a mentor and a great source of support and inspiration to me for over a decade. Always willing to share his insight, perspective and wealth of experience, he has always challenged me to do better. Work with him if you get the chance!”
I like to say that people are my library, and my daily writing practice is a way to discover what’s in it: new ideas, inspiration, wisdom, and a little fun for good measure. As your humble librarian, I invite you to check out a new idea every day. No late fees ever. Enjoy.
