“When you look around the world right now, you see an amazing number of leaders, with very high IQs, making terrible decisions,” says Huffington Post Media Group Chairwoman, President and Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington. “The problem is not that they are not smart. The problem is they are not wise. What we are lacking right now is not intelligence, but wisdom.”
Leadership has been a “key theme” in all of Huffington’s work, and while certain principles have remained the same, the idea of partnerships is more important now than ever, she says. We’re moving from a world of competition to collaboration, where companies must not just survive, but thrive.
