Emmanuel Gobillot visits Google's headquarters in Mountain View, CA, to discuss his book "The Connected Leader". This event took place June 20, 2008, as a part of the [email protected] series. For more information about Emmanuel, please visit http://www.emmanuelgobillot.com/ "The Connected Leader" is described by one reviewer as the first leadership book for the MySpace generation. Prior to setting up his own consultancy, Emmanuel was Director of Leadership Services at Global consultancy Hay Group where he also led the consumer sector practice. For the last 10 years he has worked globally with clients ranging from Fortune 500 executives to United Nation's leaders helping them develop their impact. In the first decade of this new millennium, business is no longer hierarchical (as it still remains in many organizations today) nor personal (as we were keen to suggest in the 90s). In this googled world of networks, business is now social. In this world of mass collaboration, business is now communal. Leadership is no longer attached to a role; therefore it becomes everyone's responsibility. In an economy in which no one has to follow you, what makes anyone want to do so? In this fast paced, engaging and participative talk Emmanuel will help you answer the two critical questions of 21st century leadership: 'Am I worth following?' and 'Am I easy to follow?'. When the answer to both of these questions becomes yes, anything becomes possible.
