Nexus throughout the ages. PART 2

21st Century leadership

The philosophy of leadership implicit in leadership development programs of the past is no longer adequate for dealing with the complex problems inherent in communities and organizations today. This implicit philosophy assumes that leadership rests in individuals who must be capable of inspiring and influencing others to solve problems and achieve goals.

Leadership as relationship, revolves around the idea of a network of fluid relationships and is built on the concepts of empowerment, participation, partnership, and service.
A 21st century leader incurs integrity;builds culture, values and internal and external relationships in order to get focused and innovative results.  

21st century leadership is a lot about personal branding. For a 21st century leader, it calls for their character and not the status or position. They have to be genuine and innovative in whatever aspects they choose.

AIESEC is a non governmental, not-for-profit, youth run organization present in 125 countries. It’s vision is “Peace and fulfilment of Humankind’s potential”. AIESEC provides experiential Leadership Experiences through international internships and youth forums. It has been there in Hyderabad since the last 28 years. Two years back AIESEC in Hyderabad started holding the annual stakeholders’ summit, inviting all the stakeholders and clients, 200 in number and giving the corporates and itself an elite platform of networking, hence calling it NEXUS. In 2014, NEXUS took place in AVASA themed as “21st Century leadership.”

This year it is scheduled to take place in ITC Kakatiya on 18th of April, with the theme of “The Corporate Pledge”.
