Passion , inspiration , zeal ,dedication , these are few of the words we often use to describe leadership. All the great leaders of the 20th century, such as Sir Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela. They all are perfect examples to justify this.
However , does the 21st century call for the same kind of leadership that we had witnessed during the 20th ? Every era is believed to have its own set of attributes and challenges . So how is the 21st century leadership different ?
The 21st century encounters opportunities and difficulties the world has never seen before. Today's dynamic society demands for more leaders. Gone are those days where a mob was merely led by a leader,where the leadership was run on shear autocratic and directive leadership.
The current scenario pushes for leaders to in turn create more leaders, to inspire them , to lead them into believing that they can be more , do more and achieve more. This is the phenomenon of Activating Leadership – a value that AIESEC believes and lives by.
NEXUS – Hyderabad’s Annual Stakeholder’s summit, with its theme as ‘21st Century Leadership’, has taken up the initiative to spread awareness about the current ideology of leadership and the ways in which it can be evolved to create better leaders.
