I am thrilled to be part of this year´s Thinkers50 Radar list of the 30 management thinkers. It is wonderful to join a truly global community which values business ideas that can improve the world around us. It is my hope that together we can shape the future of how organizations are managed in order to improve both business outcomes and individuals´ wellbeing.

In 2017, for the first time, the Radar includes more women than men. It is important to note the rise of influential women who voice their unique ideas and serve as role models for future generations. It is a privilege to join these incredible thinkers. I will do my best to contribute with my forthcoming book to understand the shifting nature of authenticity in leadership roles.

Thanks to Thinkers50 for their inspiration and for creating a platform where ideas can be developed and exchanged. Here is their vision for the future of management thinking:

“What is interesting is that ideas and thinkers are increasingly difficult to pigeon-hole into traditional categories like leadership and strategy. These thinkers are truly independent minded. They are driven by curiosity and innovation. In addition, their work shows broad global ambition. When we started the Thinkers50 in 2001 the emphasis was on improving corporate performance and profitability. The next generation of thinkers wants to make the world a better place. We are optimistic that their ideas will indeed make a difference.”
