New Era Leaders
The print era valued the intellectual leader; broadcast valued the motivational leader. As we transition into and through the digital era the impartational leader will value transpropositional communication, intimacy, example, and time above proclamation and exhortation in the transformation process. In this way we loop back to the oral era’s apprenticeship model where the follower absorbs character and identity through vital mentoring relationship. This, in and of itself, is a paradigm shift where leaders/mentors become significant to a few rather than continue to be marginal to many.
