It’s A Question Of Balance ® radio show balances the intellectual with the creative, exploring whether we have more in common than divides us through thought-provoking conversations – out and about with people on the street on different topics, and in the studio with inspiring guests from the arts. Balance is not a compromise. Balance is truth distilled from many places creating cohesive understanding.

Topic: Out And About – Conversations on the Street about Questions That Matter: ‘What Qualities Do You Want In A World Leader?’

Collage110616WorldLeader

Dwight D. Eisenhower said “The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity.” John F. Kennedy stated that “Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.” Jack Welch from GE advised “Keep learning; don’t be arrogant by assuming that you know it all, that you have a monopoly on the truth; always assume that you can learn something from someone else.” What qualities do you want in a world leader? Historically we seemed to have valued more the ‘hard’ qualities of leadership, for example strength and control, but perhaps today we prefer a less paternalistic and more partnership approach. So do world leaders today need different qualities than they did in the past? Henry Ford stated “working together is success”. Perhaps consensus-building could provide more solutions or is ‘might is right’ still the best way forward? Are different qualities needed to be the leader of the United States than other countries? Is there still resistance in the US to having a woman as leader?
