"The 21st century leader is working in an environment that is more racially, ethnically and gender diverse than ever before. For the first time in history, the 21st century leader oversees a workforce consisting of five generations. Add to the aforementioned milieu a similarly diverse external environment and rapidly advancing technology, the challenges for today's leaders are manifold and require an approach to leadership that is in stark contrast to 20th century practice."
Mr. Ben Gray | President of the Omaha City Council
"To put it simply, leadership, in my judgement is 50 percent listening to all sides of an issue, 30 percent doing your own research on the issue and 20 percent taking the necessary action on that issue recognizing that you will never please everyone."
