2) Being Connected to an idea or goal
Leaders who understands both where they want to go and why have a purpose for their leadership. Having a purpose helps maintain a direction, as long as that purpose does not turn into a myopic and single minded pursuit
3) Being Connected to people
A connected leader sees him/herself as a representative of other people. An effective leader today is not seeking to push his/her agenda to stand out and steer the ship. The connected leader is connected to the why of leadership as it pertains to delivery of something for or two people. The leader with an ability to broker relationships among these clusters can often lead to business success.
4) Being Connected to the Moment
Agility is required in a constantly shifting marketplace. Being connected to self, ideas and people works best if a leader recognizes the opportunity or lack of opportunity in a given moment. A mindful leader can put aside expectations and focus on the moment can see opportunities to make connection within cluster or between.
Stability and homogeneity may have lead to past success for some people but diversity and fluidity make life interesting and can create opportunities for success for people who may have been shut out in a homogenous market. Looking for opportunities to connect widely, with new and diverse people and opportunities and to broker opportunities for others to connect can allow your business to stay agile during shifting times.
