Sandra Rupp's Davos Diary: The Yin & Yang of Leadership

Archive for the ‘Leadership’ Category

Sandra Rupp is delighted to launch her 5 QUESTIONS for CEOs & Leaders SERIES on with IMRAN KHAN, one of the most influential people in the world per Time Magazine and the Asia Society. 

Sandra “unveils” her 5 Questions for the Oxford-educate Pakistan politician, friend of the late Princess Diana, and retired cricket sportsman. Special Welcome to her new Pakistani, Indian, Saudi & Muslim followers around the globe. If YouTube is blocked in your country, click here to Daily Motion

 IMRAN KHAN most recently conducted the AZADI (Freedom) MARCH, the largest peaceful protest for Democracy for what he calls the creation of Naya Pakistan (new Pakistan). Citing a need for Electoral Reform, it lasted over 100 Days. Through his dharnas (peaceful demonstrations) Imran drew very large crowds (over 40,000 people attended on November 30th), as he raises global awareness of poverty, sustainability and peaceful resolutions to war. Imran has had dharnas for Women, Young People and People with Disabilities. He has four sisters, and he is putting the same skills he had for building his Cancer hospitals, IK Foundation and College (click to read more) to work to wipe out an overwhelming poverty rate.

Did you know about 28% of the world is currently Muslim? Sandra believes it is important to build a bridge with Muslims to create better relations between the West and all Muslims. Sandra knows democracy: she is an 11th Great Great Granddaughter of Reverend William Brewster the Mayflower Pilgrim and like Imran spent time studying at Oxford.   To see more videos of Imran and Sandra click this Playlist  Sandra was placed on the THINKERS 50 Guru Radar list for her Thought Leadership on “The Yin & Yang of Leadership.” She aims to interview him on behalf of Western Media. She also asks Imran to unblock YouTube, and she has tweeted Pope Francis @Pontifex, @DalaiLama & @JohnKerry to meet with her as well.

LEADERS I have now officially entered the Gates Foundation CANNES CHIMERA challenge via Cannes Lions and The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. I spent all of my September weekends working on it. I am delighted to submit an entry via Parthenon Advisors (inspired by Athena, the helper of heroes & heroines). I look forward to the possibility of working with the CANNES CHIMERA and the GATES FOUNDATION to make poverty a problem of the past. My idea involves eliminating extreme poverty & growing the economy at the same time. I have included a VERY SPECIAL idea for @BillGates @MelindaGates & @WarrenBuffett in my two page proposal. While I can’t reveal the details, I wanted to share this important project with all of you. You can now subscribe on computer, mobile & Smart TV at YouTube Channel and click here to view my favorite video interview of Melinda Gates by CBS.

LEADERS I have two important things to announce. First I have been very busy the last three weekends working on my CANNES CHIMERA entry for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. I am honored to be a part of this challenge around eliminating extreme poverty off the planet by 2030. Did you know there are 1 Billion who still live on less than $1.25 a day? Learn more here by watching one of my favorite interviews of Melinda Gates by CBS. Did you know even in the US a recent study found that 50% of Women in the US fear falling into poverty. The volatility and bubbles in the economy have impacted everyone, and my view is that we need more stability everywhere. On that note, I believe I have a very good answer for The Gates Foundation, Bill, Melinda and Warren Buffett. I hope they will pick my entry (watch more details in my next post). I would love to work with the talented 2013 Cannes Chimera team of Executive & Chief Creative Directors. Indeed Yin + Yang = Feminine + Masculine Leadership = 21st Century Success.

I wanted to also announce that my YouTube Channel is now on SMART TV – just go to www.youtube.com/CareerExpert. YoutubeimagesRVSP now and Subscribe on your computer or mobile device. Just click & subscribe, and I will keep you posted on future developments. Indeed LEADERSHIP CAN LOOK LIKE THIS…STAY TUNED With warm regards, Sandra www.parthenonadvisors.com www.sandrarupp.com

Sandra Rupp is delighted to share her THINKERS 50 message for 2013 including highlights of the last two years: Did you know her Myers Briggs Type is a combination of Albert Einstein & Princess Diana?

LEADERS Many of you helped place me on the THINKERS50 GURU RADAR list for the world’s Top Business Thinkers in 2011. From Davos to Augusta to Cannes Lions to NACD and the Conference Board, I have spread the message of “The Yin & Yang of Leadership” ~ Feminine Leadership + Masculine Leadership = 21st Century Success. My videos have been Top Videos on Twitter & YouTube during these events thanks to many of you. I took this honor very seriously and for the last two years have worked diligently on Executive Coaching, Videos, Speaking & Social Media. WHY? Because status quo thinking about Women & Leadership (including books encouraging them to be more like men) is not working & will never work for the majority of women. That is why I have CHOSEN to take my thinking to VIDEOS & Multimedia. Indeed we must invest in women & men for who they are & embrace The Feminine Leadership Style in all its glory. My goal is to change the LOOK & FEEL of LEADERSHIP.

I believe that The Yin & Yang of Leadership is one of THE MOST IMPORTANT additions to Management Thinking in decades. Feminine Leadership + Masculine Leadership = 21st Century Success. I am honored that THINKERS 50 chose me for their Guru Radar list for the world’s top business thinkers from 2011-2013. I am so touched by all your notes & votes. Many thanks to fellow thinkers Don Tapscott, Bill George & Tom Peters for their support in the last two years! Yin + Yang.
With warm regards & gratitude from Sandra Rupp.

I am delighted to share the details of this challenge with you and with five of my FAVORITE DAVOS CEOs: Paul Polman of Unilever, Sir Martin Sorrell of WPP Group, Michael Corbat of Citigroup, Muhtar Kent of Coca Cola, and Michael Dell of Dell.

Here I invite the CEOs to contact me to schedule an on camera interview. I have handpicked five CEOs to lead the way on getting 30% Women to Davos. As the winds blow cold in Davos, we will be plotting a strategy here in Florida to make all CEOs worthy of their Catalyst Awards, the McKinsey research Women Matter, and the other awards they are picking up. The percent of women at Davos (just 17%!) remained flat this year, but we have a master plan to fix that. With the CEOs’ permission, we want to film a portion of the meetings to help lead the way for all their female customers. I am confident these five CEOs & their CHROs will understand the importance of my plan which was inspired by Warren Buffett among others. Contact: www.parthenonadvisors.com

happyvalentinedavos20131.jpg

Leaders I want to share a Special Valentine Message this year. I would like to welcome Davos Men to the Largest Economic Opportunity Worldwide. Did you know that women are the largest consumer market and an increasing percentage of business purchasing? Did you know that just 7% of people worldwide have a college degree (about 30% of people in Western countries) but women currently make up 60% of college graduates in the US ? Did you know that just about 8% of people in Western countries have a post-graduate degree but that my MBA class was 40% Women two decades ago? Unfortunately 90% of the Angel Investor & VC Money is still going to men! Yet women in their 40s and 50s are starting more new companies than any other demographic sector but many have to use a personal credit card (with high interest rates) to start one. Banks: how are you doing on Small Business Lending?…Companies: Why are we stuck at just 16% Women Board Members for the last ten years in countries without a Quota? What does Leadership Look Like to YOU?…Meantime only 3% of Creative Heads at the major Ad Agencies are Women??…Looking at many of the Super Bowl Ads, the gentlemen need some help! (Calgon, take me away… :-))

DAVOS CEOs IN EVERY INDUSTRY: You NEED 30%+ WOMEN on your Boards & Executive Teams today following McKinsey’s research that 30%+ Women on your teams is good for business. Otherwise you are not investing in the largest economic opportunity worldwide. Executive women don’t need Sponsorship which to me is an outdated patriarchical word; they need to be appointed to your Leadership Team & recognized as the strong FEMININE LEADERS THEY ALREADY ARE. Can’t find them in your company? I can. I was a Global Executive Search Consultant for many years. Angel Investors: if you are not investing in Women & Minorities, you are missing out on a huge portion of leaders needed to reboot the Western & global economies. And WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM with your support & the help of Davos Men like @DTapscott, @Bill_George, @Paul1Polman @BillGates @MartinSorrell @Wunderman29 @RichardBranson @MichaelDell @Nouriel and others, I WILL GET 30% WOMEN AT DAVOS including 2 delegates for strategic partners….because leadership now comes in a lot of different forms & fashions: indeed LEADERSHIP CAN LOOK LIKE THIS> And once I get DAVOS MEN TO UNDERSTAND THIS, we will GET THIS ECONOMY ROLLING AGAIN because Yin + Yang = 21st Century Success. STAY TUNED.

FAVORITE QUOTE: “Great necessities call forth great leaders.” ~ ABIGAIL ADAMS

(Note: This post has been updated with a new video.) As we get ready to cover The World Economic Forum’s annual meeting at Davos, I wanted to introduce an important NEW TOPIC: THE HIGHLY SENSITIVE LEADERS : Leaders for the 21st Century. Did you know between 15 and 20% of people have a gene for being Highly Sensitive (HSPs)? For more on that topic check out the wonderful research and book by Dr. Elaine Aron. I am happy to share that I am an HSP. In this video I also discuss the HSS High Sensation Seeker and how some leaders are both HSS and HSP (that makes for a very interesting leader). Now I am currently working on a special video series to introduce the topic of THE HIGHLY SENSITIVE LEADERS, because I have coached and advised many people who fit this profile. Many Highly Sensitive Leaders are introverts on the Myers Briggs Test, however at least 30% are extroverted. They include both men and women. They are often intelligent, intuitive and creative. All are very important to Leadership in the 21st Century. Indeed our very survival will depend upon The HIGHLY SENSITIVE LEADERS. Interestingly they may not fit a 20th century style of Leadership, but they are increasingly leading 21st century companies. Two are my favorite billionaires, and many are the CEOs, Entrepreneurs and Leaders I most admire. It turns out Sensitivity is a good thing in Leaders. STAY TUNED for Davos 2013. The theme this year is RESILIENT DYNAMISM. To achieve this, I believe it will take some Highly Sensitive Leaders to get us through the challenges ahead, and I look forward to working with them this year.

FAVORITE QUOTE: “Like a French poem is life; being only perfect in structure when with the masculine rhymes mingled with the feminine are.”  HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW

I am very touched by those who have launched me into the THINKERS 50 competition. What a great way to advance The Yin & Yang of Leadership to help this economy.  Yin + Yang = Masculine Leadership + Feminine Leadership = 21st century Economic Growth. I started this year communicating my thoughts via a Davos Debates Video (Investing in The Feminine Leadership Style, a 7 Step Plan)I then shared The Yin & Yang of Leadership with the NACD (National Association of Corporate Directors). Next I communicated it to the United Nations through the Citizen Ambassadors video as a way to help achieve the eight Millennium Development Goals more quickly. This year THINKERS 50 has specifically requested more female nominees. To add your vote of support, please vote by October 14thMany thanks with a special video message. Best wishes from Sandra Rupp.

If you had 30 Seconds to pitch one World Changing Idea to the United Nations, what would it be? I participated in the Citizen Ambassador Video Contest to share my message of The Yin & Yang of Leadership and express support for the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Here is a link summarizing all eight of the MDGs . The requirement for the video was that your answer be no more than 30 seconds & that you start your pitch with the words “Excuse Me, Mr. Secretary-General.” Watch below:

Can we end poverty one day? By working together and thinking creatively, I believe so. Many thanks to Mr. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon & the United Nations for their hard work & dedication on the MDGs.  Having been lucky enough to work with people from many parts of the world, I have learned that there is a place we are very similar: our hearts and a place we are complementary: our minds. Call or email me to discuss how I can help you, your company or your organization as a Brand Ambassador for Conscious Capitalism, Sustainability & Inclusion. Best wishes from Sandra Rupp. Contact: www.parthenonadvisors.com www.sandrarupp.com
