Naked Leader Week – 82 (w/c Monday 6 December 2004)
Just three more Naked Weeks and we move into the big launches – of The Metanet – the first leadership portal on the web, more on that, next week. In two weeks I will be previewing The Next Business Age, a blueprint for the enlightened organisation in the 21st Century, drawn up by business and spiritual leaders throughout the world, including many of you, and in three weeks, after receiving hundreds of e-mails, for Christmas week, I will be previewing how we can all, together, at last awaken the forces of good in the world, in 2005.
hese three, plus continuing thoughts and contributions from you, making the Global Top 50 Leaders a more regular feature, and extracts from The Naked Leader Adventure, will be the basis of A Naked Week in 2005.
For the Metanet please send in the books and “gurus” you most admire – together we will have the definitive ongoing top 21. For now, here are mine.
With love to you wherever you are
