Leadership Trends

As we turn the page on another new year tradition dictates that we take a collective peek into our crystal balls to prognosticate on trends and predictions to give our best guess on what will come in year.leadershiptrends

Trends come and go; we have seen trends in the use of technology in how we manage others and form our opinions of leaders. Social media has played a pivotal role on how we shape our conversations on leadership. We have seen cultural shifts in the definition of what it means to be a leader. Buzzwords have been used to describe leadership and other types of trendy topics on leadership have taken over as well. However, what never goes out of style are the core tenets of how to be a leader. Leadership is not purchased it comes from within each of us. Leadership is not a brand, it’s not product – it is a way of life.

Founder and CEO at BEALEADER
Over the course of my career, I have been sought after by numerous organizations to bring my talents in the arenas of sales, marketing and business development. As the Founder and Director of Business BEALEADER, I bring my experience to the table to expand the knowledge base for those seeking to find their own leader within. In 2011, I created BEALEADER to be a platform for individuals to share their expertise and leadership to make others better by being a resource of business, career and marketing solutions for those who are just starting out or maybe have a “few” years under their belt and need keep their skills fresh. In addition to the BEALEADER platform, I have developed the business units BEALEADER Business Services, which provides marketing, business development and human resource management services and BEALEADER Executive Coaching Services, which provides one on one and group coaching services to executives and individuals. These business units expand our ability and brand to make others better as we reach out to our audience with these unique product offerings. In 2014, I was named to the Inc.com list of Top 101 Leadership Speakers and I have written for several publications such as Yahoo! Small Business, Business 2 Community and others. I have also co-hosted several podcasts and in 2015 will be hosting the BEALEADER podcast for our audience as well.
