Seeing with 20/20 vision is a good thing. As we welcome 2020, and a new decade, it’s also a good idea for leadership development directors to have a vision for the future of their department. We’re in the midst of a Fourth Industrial Revolution, yet over the last decade or more, most of leadership development has remained stagnant.
