The program is based on the international best-selling book "Complex Adaptive Leadership – Embracing paradox and uncertainty" (CAL) published in Chinese as "Future Leadership". The program introduces Leadership 4.0, a new approach for leadership for a new age based on a new science.

该项目基于一本国际畅销书《Complex Adaptive Leadership – Embracing paradox and uncertainty 》,中文版书名是《未来领导力---成为VUCA时代的复合型高适领导者》。 该项目介绍了领导力4.0,这是一种基于新科学的领导力新方法,适用于当今的新时代.

Leadership 1.0– The assumption for most development (leadership is done by leaders, downwards) is still necessary, but no longer sufficient.


Leadership 2.0– The increasing organizational reality, needing more cross-boundary working and leadership going sideways and outwards as well.

领导力2.0 – 这是组织日益增强的现实需求–组织需要更多的跨界协作,需要发挥横向的领导力 ,也需要组织由内而外地发挥领导力。

Leadership 3.0 The problem – as the world becomes more complex and uncertain, leaders no longer know the answers – so leadership also needs to go upwards from where the answers are, and leaders also need to lead when they do not know the solutions.


Leadership 4.0 The solution – combining leaderships 1.0 and 2.0 and 3.0 in a dynamic, based on a new science for a new age – complexity science.

领导力4.0 –这是组织的解决方案–把领导力1.0、2.0、3.0动态结合起来,基础是适合于这个新时代的一门新科学–复杂性科学

This program gets proven result. An analysis of some 700 managers from around the world has shown that the program offers two key benefits: enabling more TIME to do more valuable things with reduced stress, and better TEAM motivation, empowerment and results. 

有证据表明该项目能够给学习者带来诸多好处。 一项针对世界各地约700名学习过复合型高适领导力项目的管理人员的分析表明,该项目给学习者带来的主要好处体现在时间与团队管理两方面:让学习者有更多的时间做更有价值的事情,而且压力更小,让学习者所在的团队更积极主动,赋能效果更好,团队绩效更好。
