'A leader with a narrow worldview has a very short shelf life,' says Mal Fletcher.
In a new leadership editorial published on this site, Mal writes: 'In an age of increasingly rapid change, professional qualifications and an impressive resume are no longer enough to guarantee longevity of tenure, or enduring influence.'
'People in industry, as in life generally, are looking for information that has been processed through the filter of a wide band of knowledge and wisdom, so that it can be applied constructively and quickly.'
'The wider your knowledge base as a leader, the greater is your capacity to interpret new technologies and ideas and turn them into something useful.'
Mal adds: 'As I travel the world speaking to civic, business, media and community leaders, I'm constantly surprised at how limited is the worldview of so many who hold positions of influence.'
'This limits their ability to make sense of change on behalf of others, which is a key requirement of leadership today.'
This article is a MUST READ for all leaders and people of influence.

Mal, you've totally inspired me to be more active about the media world I'm in. I'm trying to find more ways to use my media skills to help people meet God. It's people like you that have been the spark to start this explosion. Thank you, I'm in ranks with you... Isaac, United Kingdom
I really appreciate this ministry! I think you are a very important tool in the world today & for Christians. I'm so encouraged by the teaching!! Jonas Päivärinta
I've been listening to a lot of the EDGES shows online and find them highly intellectual and factual and extremely interesting. They're so useful in building my understanding of real issues seen from Christian eyes... I love it! Thanks. Joel, UK
