It is a core responsibility of current and future leaders to become better educated about the challenges they face and how they can become more effective at leading in a time of significant disruption.

As the world moves toward 2050, contexts and conditions will emerge that create challenges that are beyond the abilities of most leaders or any single nation to manage. This contextual shift—a time of great stress and constraint—has the potential to drive a new, more complex stage of human culture and consciousness to meet these challenges. Leadership matters. It is a core responsibility of current and future leaders to become better educated about the challenges they face and how they can become more effective at leading in a time of significant disruption. Today’s leaders must develop to manage higher levels of complexity, think longer term and demonstrate more emotional intelligence. A new level of leadership savvy is needed to affect how these changes play out in the world.

Sayre talked about his keys to success, and about being an executive and growing his current company, NexDefense. In an environment where cybersecurity is a hot topic, his company is positioned to help resolve one of the biggest risks. Mazzocco spoke about his success, candidly discussing insights and details about his growth path as both a CIO and CEO/President. He spoke about his fears and motivations for growth in a manner executives rarely share.

Both are true thought leaders in their fields. They are role models for developing innovative solutions within their industries and taking innovative approaches to leadership.

The interviews aired November 24 and December 1, and are available for download.

The NexDefense article, Looking to 2016: Trends, Challenges and Opportunities in Industrial Control Systems Cybersecurity, is also available on the Metcalf & Associates blog.
