We are entering a new economy and a wholly new age. With technology sweeping us along, our relationship to everything around us is changing. Our engagements -- from employment to politics to the marketplace -- are being disintermediated by strange and new players. Thousands of books and articles continue to be written about leadership, but are their authors looking in the wrong directions? As the world around us continues to change profoundly, what will leadership mean? What will it become? And why will it matter?
