Issue four is dedicated to the death of the ‘long-line’ philosophy and to the birth of a new type of leadership which understands that A plus B does not always equal C, that sometimes the solutions to our problems lie in unexpected places, and that understanding our inner selves is the key to it all. We trust this issue will encourage and equip you to flourish without fear of expectation, champion others without comparison, and to find people with complementary skills to join you in pursuing a mission that becomes bigger than yourself.
