New Blogging Series: “New Leadership in the New Economy: Diversity Matters”


Leadership is no longer defined by years spent in the industry, seniority with the company or the number of gray hairs on our heads. Innovation and social strategies play an increasing role in who wins – and who gets left behind. Often by necessity, leadership is getting younger, stronger and more diverse

Switch and Shift is dedicated to starting dialogue around the human side of business: engagement, culture, service as a differentiator and, of course, leadership.

Starting today, we’ll focus exclusively on this new brand of leaders in a blogging series titled “New Leadership in the New Economy: Diversity Matters”. Topics will include (but, as they say, are not limited to):

  • Millennials in Leadership Roles
  • Cross-generational Leadership Teams
  • Leadership Diversity
  • Social Leadership
  • Virtual Leadership

Reflecting the title of our series, our diverse group of contributors includes authors, thought leaders, influencers and rebel heretics such as Irene Becker, Josh Allan Dykstra, Kayla Cruz, Angela Maiers, and our own Ted Coine, Shawn Murphy and Mark Babbitt. Each post will be independent by design, yet collaborate in nature. Our goal is to serve one purpose: to make us better thinkers… and leaders.

We hope you’ll come back often through May 18th to read this important blogging series – and to comment, share and join in the conversation!

    There’s a more human way to do business.

    In the Social Age, it’s how we engage with customers, collaborators and strategic partners that matters; it’s how we create workplace optimism that sets us apart; it’s how we recruit, retain (and repel) employees that becomes our differentiator. This isn’t a “people first, profits second” movement, but a “profits as a direct result of putting people first” movement.
