In this 21st century, businesses need well-grounded leaders who have multiple intelligences. First of all, they are expected to showcase a diverse set of talents to survive in the quickly changing global marketplace. And finally, to succeed, they must have a firm grasp of analytical and strategic thinking and the ability to use their intuition and interpersonal skills effectively.

In short, now is the time for renaissance leaders who can challenge established beliefs, develop their abilities, and make the seemingly impossible possible. They have to perfect the art of balancing their mind and heart and get the best done for themselves and their organization. It's a huge concept coming up in businesses today, and there's a lot to learn about it- from this podcast!

We are now being forced to adjust our workplace models according to the current disruptive environment and circumstances. This big reset calls for the importance of renaissance leaders who are willing to ask, recognize, collaborate, act, and magnify their team members.

Jean discusses all the attributes that characterize a renaissance leader in this podcast. It contains her advice on how renaissance leaders may find latent talent in their workforce. They should, she says, ask the questions no one else is asking and establish new connections that lead to unique ideas benefiting the organization. Instead of working in our cocoons, renaissance leaders value diverse talents coming together to discover new ideas across multiple disciplines. Towards the end of the conversation, Jean also share some practical leadership advice that can be usefully applied in these disruptive times and will always be relevant.
