In this third phase of my working life I want to share the insights I've gained being a leader in a variety of settings over the last 38 years. I intend to first talk briefly about a framework for leadership in general and then talk about what I think is different in a global context. Along the way it will be necessary to spend a little time on cultural awareness and how that affects leader behavior. I'll also talk about Diversity and Inclusion, what those concepts mean to a leader of a global team and why I think it's important. I'll share some of my own lessons learned and my personal "Top 20" leadership rules of thumb. I will try to stay on topic but may drift into the broader learning space, energy policy or other topics as they arise, but I intend to always return to this global leadership topic. I also expect to publish a book review about once a week. I look forward to hearing from you all and exchanging views on this important topic.
