A vital leadership model for today’s business environment would be one based on trust and transparency that can weather the storms of outsourcing, downsizing and any “unpredictables.” It would create a compelling vision that captures the hearts and souls of those engaged in the pursuit of the organization’s goals, and generate mutual benefit for employer and employee.
