    You definitely don’t want to be a mediocre leader but do you know how to avoid it? This article offers great insight in how to stay the leadership course.


    In today’s complex world, leaders are being asked to step up in dynamic and unexpected ways.

    Unfortunately, many of them are not equipped with the tools they need to lead under pressure. As a result, they fail to serve themselves and their employees effectively, and put the future of their entire organization at risk.

    Today’s infographic from Vince Molinaro’s Accountable Leaders reveals the common behaviors that can result in leaders becoming mediocre due to mounting day-to-day pressures.

    Have we been underestimating humility as a key trait in leadership?


    It’s more than two millennia since the philosopher Socrates argued that humility is the greatest of all virtues. His timeless observation was that the wisest people are the first to admit how little they really know.

    Science has been slow to catch up to this argument, but the last decade has offered a spate of new studies examining this trait and its effects on our thinking and reasoning. According to this research, people with greater humility are better learners, decision-makers and problem solvers. One study even found that someone’s humility could trump actual IQ in predicting their performance.

    The latest findings suggest that the trait is especially important for leaders, with evidence that displays of humility can improve strategic thinking and boost the performance of colleagues across an organisation.

    Congratulations to the PIEoneer Awards 2020 finalists! There are so many wonderful organizations and institutions included in this list. 

    The PIEoneer Awards are the only global awards that celebrate innovation and achievement across the whole of the international education industry.

    From our advocate and volunteer, Malaika Serrano of Worldstrides/ISA:

    Dear @GlobalLeadershipLeague members and advocates:

    Like so many of you, I am heartbroken, outraged, and traumatized by the repeated acts of violence against unarmed Black men and women. And yet everyday, I get up, check on my children and start another work day...on the outside, I may look calm and collected but honestly, I'm emotionally exhausted.

    This timely and thought-provoking read by McKinsey and Co. on why "Diversity Still Matters" underscores why organizations cannot turn their backs on diversity, equity and inclusion.

    As an equity-minded practitioner, the central messages of the article ring true and align with our work - ignite change across the global education field by empowering, connecting, and training leaders, who actively create spaces for inclusion and belonging in the workplace.

    We warmly welcome your feedback and reflections.

    With love,
    Malaika Serrano
