I read an interesting article earlier this morning in the Harvard Business Review. It was entitled, “Self-Disrupt or Be Disrupted” by Korn Ferry, a global organizational consulting firm. The gist of the article focused on how leaders in the future need to prepare today to address the competition and challenges they will face. Or as Korn Ferry writes:
“Competitive advantage will come with leaders who can connect resources and people adeptly to build an innovation ecosystem.”
They write that in order to do this, leaders and companies must start the process of disrupting leadership development now or find themselves behind the pack. They briefly touch on 5 core qualities in this new leadership skillset.

Why come to First Fridays Fort Wayne?
I’ve had this asked of me many times. I typically ask this question as part of my response:
Many (most?) leaders believe in leadership development. In some companies, they intentionally develop the leaders within their organization. But that is rare these days. So individual leaders are left to find opportunities to develop themselves.
First Fridays Fort Wayne is a fantastic opportunity for you to receive high quality leadership development each month. And the only invest you need to make is time.
One of our “regulars” at First Fridays Fort Wayne has told me and has also written this on LinkedIn, “why would you miss the chance to hear outstanding leaders and be exposed to excellent leadership content?”
Months ago, I was stopped downtown by another “regular” who told me, “Thank you to you and your brother for creating First Fridays. I’ve grown so much. I’ve never been around so many like-minded people before. It’s great.”
It has been said many times “you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” If that concerns you, invest your time with area leaders who attend First Fridays. You will have the chance to build lasting relationships. You will be challenged by outstanding leaders our area has been blessed with. You will help other businesses grow while your own business will grow – referrals are a natural by-product of First Fridays!
We are wrapping up Season 2. We will kick-off Season 3 on September 6. We hope to have our speaker roster posted soon. If you have yet to attend a First Fridays Fort Wayne event, our next events are:
