In the modern era, leadership has moved beyond the professional running of an organization. In today’s volatile, chaotic, complex, and networked society, where external business partners are growing and gradually outnumbering internal employees, leaders should bring new levels of expertise, credibility, trust, and values that go toward strengthening professional human relationships. Modern leadership demands a broader appreciation that we are part of a complicated interconnected “network age” that needs increased interdependence among individuals, organizations, and nations.

As a consequence of this enhanced interdependence, individuals and organizations will naturally compete with one another. Modern leadership recognizes the need for rivals to move beyond competition and actively cooperate with others, whether as members of teams or as parties to strategic alliances. The trend towards forming strategic alliances is increasingly seen, especially in global industries such as airline, automotive manufacturing, telecommunications, and pharmaceuticals.

By believing in goals that benefit not only themselves but also others, visionary leaders can create such an atmosphere of cooperation. People want to work for a cause, not just for a living, which implies that our existence, work or otherwise, serves a useful purpose, and has value. Hence, the first question a leader should ask, in consultation with  stakeholders, is “Who do we intend to be?” and not “What are we going to do?”
