While the incumbent establishment fears and resists change, the insurgent embraces change, because change means opportunity.
By Scott Miller, CEO, Core Strategy Group, USA
To know is to change. To know more is to change more. To know instantly and everywhere is to change fundamentally.
Insurgent leadership, revolutionaries in their fields of interest
The digital information revolution has created the turbulent change environment in which we all live and work globally.
In this situation traditional forms of power are turned on their head; incumbents, who have depended on size, scope and tradition for power, are at a disadvantage to insurgents, who depend on speed, mobility and imagination.
Today, as never before in history, underdogs hold the cards. Insurgent candidates disrupt global politics; insurgent brands disrupt global markets; and insurgent tactics have been adopted by even the most powerful military forces.
Insurgent leadership is change-leadership
While the incumbent establishment fears and resists change, the insurgent embraces change, because change means opportunity. It is no surprise that our Tällberg-SNF-Eliasson Global Leaders are revolutionaries in their own fields of interest.
They are true insurgents and change-leaders. They have thrived in this new environment and made impressive progress against the most stubborn challenges and most resistant establishment conventions and institutions.
The core meaning of the Tällberg Foundation is to start, encourage and extend the most interesting and important conversation in the world. Our Tällberg Leaders are an essential part of that conversation.
