The pervasive turbulence in today’s global business environment can knock even savvy leaders off balance. Facing a world in constant change requires perpetual innovation to stay ahead of the unpredictability. 

To succeed in this environment, leaders must constantly renew their own energy while helping others recharge themselves in order for their organization to stay aligned and act in concert. When this shared energy approach is adopted, the entire organization benefits individually and as a whole. We emphasize this approach in our roles as mentors and coaches to the International Fellows at the MIT Legatum School of Entrepreneurship. Today’s effective leaders accelerate the abilities of those around them to continuously move forward. As they shift mindsets and create larger worldview, leaders must be prepared to adopt new skills and knowledge, change their attitudes and beliefs while helping others around them do the same.
