- What are the qualities of leadership that are most optimally suited to a world of increasing volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity?
- How can we develop the wisdom, caring, creativity, intuition, and social intelligence necessary to look deeply into the nature of our lives and world and continually evolve and develop ourselves?
- How can we best inspire andnurture the development of the people, communities and organizations that we share our lives with?
