  Leadership as 'the Norm, Not the Exception.
  Gone is the day of the old command-and-control environment, the climb-the-ladder model, in which the employee kept quiet and didn't say too much, certainly not much beyond what was asked and tasked.
  Leadership needs to be "flat" today.
  No longer is leadership about a few exceptional leaders at the top of the organization. Rather, the future is about exceptional teams and the leaders within those teams who can out-maneuver, out-manage and out-innovate their competition.
  Leaders do not like surprises, not even good surprises.
  No ostriches no elephant.
