Why do successful leaders value wisdom?
Learn the practices and qualities of wise organizations and their leaders.
A wisdom worker can see beyond knowledge and numbers to understand what is truly essential. A wise leader doesn’t just learn from their mistakes. They assure their mistakes (which lead to wisdom) serve a social good. Wise leaders have strong pattern recognition, adopt the curiosity of a long-life learner and have ceased needing to impress or prove themselves. They adopt a certain unvarnished yet polished authenticity in their behaviour and have the empathic capacity to tune into virtually any frequency, offering psychological safety for their teams.
