Staying relevant involves:
- Being aware of changes in one’s environment, industry or situation.
- Being alert to resulting threats or opportunities.
- Being ready to take action to avoid loss or make gains.
Constituents put their trust in leaders whom they feel can navigate the changes, challenges and choices facing their family, community or organization. For this reason, today’s leader must actively work at staying relevant – through education, experience, open mindedness and being nimble.
For this reason I’ve chosen Stay Relevant as Rich’s Rule #5.
