The Minds of Future Leaders

What do you need from the emerging leaders on your team? Author and professor Howard Gardner has identified five minds that must be mastered to meet future demands:

The Disciplined Mind – mastery of an applied discipline (such as marketing) and the underpinnings of that discipline (such as psychology)

The Synthesizing Mind the ability to organize and integrate extensive and varied information

The Creating Mind – the drive to ask ‘what if’ questions, and take action to explore the possible

The Respectful Mind – understanding, appreciating and working effectively with diverse individuals 

The Ethical Mind – a sense of obligation to act as a responsible worker, colleague and citizen

To successfully deal with increasingly complex environments and challenges, these are the minds you should test for and select for.
