Will the leader of the next decade be that different than the leader of today? And if so, how? These were the two questions that Jacob sought out to explore in his groundbreaking new book The Future Leader.
To answer these questions, Jacob personally interviewed over 140 CEOs globally from companies like Unilever, Audi, Mastercard, Best Buy, Oracle, Verizon, and many others. Jacob also teamed up with LinkedIn to survey almost 14,000 members around the world. This allowed for an accurate, global picture of leadership as well as a shocking comparison across seniority levels.
Unlike other leadership books which focus on current trends, this valuable resource is backed by extensive, never-before-seen research, direct quotes, and insights from the world's top business leaders.
The result? A range of insights and advice leaders can use now to prepare for the coming decade and beyond, including the fact that leaders around the world believe they are far better prepared for the future than they really are.
What are the top trends shaping the future of leadership? What are the greatest challenges that leaders must be prepared to overcome? What skills and mindsets must leaders of the future possess to be successful? What steps should one take to become a future-ready leader? The Future Leader answers all of these questions and more.
Industries, markets, and businesses are changing more rapidly now than ever before. This means that over the next decade, our organizations will look fundamentally different than they do today. As a result, we need a new type of leader at the helm. Today's leaders must become tomorrow's leaders, and this book will show you how to do just that.
Success today doesn't guarantee success tomorrow. Only preparation can do that. Many leaders have already noticed the signs of the times. They understand the importance of preparing for disruption, but how do they do that? This book will ensure you're ready to guide your organization in an age of change. Are you ready to become The Future Leader?

Morgan certainly beats the drum for the ‘entitled millennial.’ A lot of his suggestions seem to pivot around the mindset that businesses owe it to young workers to turn them into leaders. Vast majorities of young workers want to be leaders and businesses aren’t helping them grow, blah, blah, boo hoo. Well, statistically speaking, not everyone is going to be a leader. If we’re all leaders, who is following? Nobody WANTS to be a janitor, but somebody’s got to scoop up vomit in elementary schools, right? There’s always going to be low-level, hands-on, dirty jobs that aren’t going to necessitate that everyone doing them needs to be a leader someday.
Some of the big catchwords throughout are “inclusivity,” and “genuineness.” But to me, promises of corporate inclusivity are evolving into necessary marketing gimmicks and vapid ones at that. While the emergence of a genuine individual (let alone a “leader”) seems impossible in a culture so ensconced in social media, one of the least genuine forms of communication.
Some examples come across as contradictory. Praising Facebook for striving to be inclusive but forgetting that they’re just as money-hungry as the rest of corporate America – selling user data, etc. Then saying current leadership methods are archaic and need to evolve, but using a short film from the 1970’s (Powers of Ten) to illustrate that point.
For all my nit-picking, however, I think the future of leadership is an interesting topic to tackle. I certainly find Morgan’s book one that can get us thinking, talking, planning.
According to the author great leaders should have the "ability to engage, empower, and inspire who they work with and lead". While each person’s leadership style may differ, the above qualities are necessary to gain the confidence of employees and help them possibly become leaders themselves. Motivating others may be challenging, but by using many of the skills and mindsets mentioned in this book, leaders may gain a great deal of inspired and enthusiastic employees.
Morgan demonstrates in detail that technology is something that cannot be ignored when it comes to running a business or organization. Though it should not take the place of being a leader who shows humility and a desire to mentor those who work with and for them and using their strengths to grow further. Another strong point he makes is building a culture of diversity and inclusion. As the world becomes more open to change, so should leaders and the businesses they run. Just as the book title suggests, futuristic thinking and planning must be applied to every entity of leadership while learning from the past and applying new concepts in order to succeed in the future.
There is a wealth of information that will help leaders grow to become more successful and in turn help the businesses they own or work for have a promising future. The author also includes a link to two websites where leaders can learn more. This book is a must who are presently leaders as well as future leaders of the world.Essential tools to become a successful leader of the future
The Future Leader: 9 Skills and Mindsets to Succeed in the Next Decade by Jacob Morgan presents to CEO’s, managers, and small business owners insight on how to thrive as a leader in the coming years. The author begins discussing what he defines as the “Notable Nines” which include four mindsets and five skills said to be crucial for future leaders. Morgan interviewed successful leaders across the world with a set of questions to evaluate their leadership styles and concepts about what it means to be a leader. The first question he asks each person was what is a leader and who is a leader. Their answers are central to the layout of the book.

The author taps CEOs, managers, and business owners from a range of industries to offer their input about what it takes to be a great leader, and what will be required in the future. Mindset and skills are the focus, and successful leaders (men and women) provided their insights. At the most basic level Morgan wanted to know what makes a person a leader? Morgan states that exceptional leaders have the "ability to engage, empower, and inspire who they work with and lead." The key is to motivate and inspire employees, and this book points to the way leaders can utilize mindset and develop the skills necessary to do so. Mentorship is also critically important, as the author implies that many companies are not adequately preparing individuals to be great leaders, and if changes are not put into place the workplace will be lacking excellent leadership in the future.
The author also focuses on the importance of technology and the central role it plays in organizations. Technology, however, cannot replace strong leaders. Change, flexibility, diversity, and inclusion are also emphasized, and examples are used to illustrate how organizations can best implement what is necessary to move into the future and thrive. Successful leaders will adapt, grow, and cultivate the skills required - while learning from past mistakes.
This book offers so many great tips and pointers, and anyone in leadership or management positions to read this book! All leaders have the potential to grow into more successful leaders, and they can not only support their organizations to effectively move into the future, but they can also mentor and guide future leaders. Morgan offers additional tools and resources beyond this book. Overall, I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the concept of leadership.
The book is divided into five major sections – five sections that govern the development of a future leader. Each section then delves further into the topic at hand. Also in each area are highlighted portions that contain thoughts and ideas directly quoted from the CEOs of major companies and corporations whom Mr. Morgan interviewed for the material in his book. I found this presentation to be unique as well as insightful. Getting this perceptivity on leadership directly from the heads of companies as they are navigating their way through their careers is what stands out in this book.
I viewed the book as an invaluable reference dealing with the myriad aspects of being a leader in any regard. From the role of the leader (which is in itself never cut and dry) to responsibilities and trends of leaders in the future, this book never disappoints with the invaluable lessons and details. The book contains a link to a survey that is fun to take and helps to determine if you are on the right path to be ready for leadership in the future decade. This is the part of the book that peaked my interest the most – Morgan's attention to the changes the future will hold and the skill set necessary keep pace with modern technologies in the workplace. I know that I have worked for companies where the leadership was greatly lacking. This book has helped me to pinpoint where that lack stemmed from and how it had a trickle-down affect on me – the employee. I do not want to make the same mistakes when I take over the helm of a company someday. Jacob Morgan has written an accessible book that provides insight and guidance for the future leaders to come.
I loved all of the information and awesome tips that came from CEOS of huge and viable companies, and the information on how to shift your leadership skills into the modern age. There is a lot that we don’t really think about when it comes to the different changes that are coming about and the future of both customers and workers that need a little more focus than they have had in the past. The workforce is becoming more open to teamwork, change and livability and this book really goes far to mention all of these upcoming shifts and how to keep up with them.
I also really liked the collection of graphs and tip lists that added a little more to what I was reading. Having a visual to come back to when you need it is really important here if you choose to take what is here and apply it to your every day life.
Another thing I loved about the ease of finding what you needed for reference was the light-houses, pointing out where different CEO’s had given some information. Originally, I found it a little childish, but after further thinking (and surprisingly more use of the book as reference) I found myself instead searching for the information that I needed.
I have quite a bit of managerial experience, and even ran my own tiny company for a little while, but with the uncertainty of the economy right now, I do find myself open to learning a little more about managerial styles that could be of aid in the future. This book really helped to keep me grounded in looking to the future (even after a grueling and horrible job interview that set me to wanting to give up on trying) and focusing on becoming the greatest leader I could be, and hopefully mold a few amazing leaders in the future.
The beginning of this book was very clarifying in regards to my husband's struggle. The author, states in the begining of, The Future Leader: 9 Skills and Mindsets to Succeed in the Next Decade, "80% of employees say they can do their jobs without their managers and actually think that their managers are not necessary." Sadly, this is probably the mindset for many employees. The employees continue to grow and learn throughout their career but have a leader that doesn't acknowledge their growth therefore the employee ends up feeling under valued or taken for granted. Another quote from Barrie Rafferty states, "If you want to attract and keep top talent, then you need to make sure to invest in their experience. Employees have more power and this will only continue to increase. We have to build organizations with our people, not for them. Leaders must understand that they and their organizations are nothing without the people who work there." This is probably the best advice I have heard in regards to valuing employees. They are the back bone, heart, and lungs of a business. If only more employers would take the time to read this book and really absorb the information, people like my husband might actually be valued and used as a true asset to the company instead of forcing them to stay within the borders of their position. Allow people to move up, expand, and use what they have learned or the skills they have acquired to improve the business itself.
The author, Jacob Morgan is well spoken with a intelligent approach to the leadership skills and qualities that are needed for success. He has taken the wisdom from successful CEO's and put it together with research, real numbers, and solid advice.
Jacob Morgan does a great job of pulling this book together, providing insight from high profile business leaders, making great points of how leaders need to lead in today’s business, while making this book a pleasant read and not just bullet point how to guide.
I do recommend being prepared to take notes as you read through this book. There were many quotes and references to which I found myself having to go back and read again.
I found in humorous when the author broke down how some large company leaders placed themselves as being closely connected and in tune with their employees vs how those employees rated those leaders. It just goes to prove the truth of how being a leader means you should be a servant to those you lead. Working on the human factor of creating leaders, not just workers.
I really enjoyed how the book explained how becoming a “Global Citizen” is important, and that the Explorer mentality is needed so survive in the current economy. You can’t be timid as a leader and survive in today’s world with the speed of change we are constantly seeing.
I found a lot of great information in this book. Some of the things mentioned are those which I practice, and many of them are skills I must work to attain. I love books like this which not only remind me of what I am doing well, but also highlight that which I need to improve.
The first part of the book is very enlightening as it discusses why many become frustrated with their jobs. It really hit home and gave me a new perspective on my current job that should serve me well going forward as I look for ways to improve and move up in the organization. Some simple insights worked as a powerful catalyst in changing the way I think about the work I do.
If that’s all this book did, I would have been very happy with this purchase. However, Mr. Morgan continues and discusses many aspects of what will be required to be successful in the future, how to build strong and loyal employees, and how to be a better trainer and leader and not just a manager (or worse, a micromanager).
He draws on experiences of top business leaders and provides clear examples that are helpful and applicable to just about anyone. Like many books, a lot of it appears to be feel-good anecdotal stories that are hard to apply in real-life. However, Mr. Morgan quickly moves beyond that and gives solid, implementable practices. The stories bolster the principles rather than having the stories stand alone as some kind of amorphous, unattainable, philosophical guidepost.
Overall, I would highly recommend this book. It will prove useful to just about anyone interested in leadership of any kind and will help change your perspective on your life and the role work plays in it.
Throughout the books two hundred eighty pages Morgan interviews and discusses leadership with current leaders. The primary thrust of the book is to present a “Notable Nine.” Morgan posits that there are four mindsets and five skills that future leaders must have to be successful.
Several things resonated with me. In the first part of the book, Morgan notes that today’s leaders are struggling. He asserts, “most of our leaders are, bluntly speaking, not good.” He’s not talking about their character, but the methodology they follow and espouse as leaders. Morgan’s definition of a leader in the second chapter is thought-provoking and challenging. Chapter eight’s discussion of ethics and morals was fascinating and led to the challenge about how leaders need to practice reflection. The first two parts of the book were foundational.
Having set the stage for the discussion, in part three Morgan identified the four mindsets. He explains The Explorer; The Chef; The Servant; and The Global Citizen. All are well-described, but I found “The Servant” and the concept of “servant-leadership” most interesting.
Parts four and five, as I read it, were a bit more academic. In part four, Morgan discusses in detail the five skills of the notable nine. All of them were well-written, but I found the description of “The Coach” to resonate. Morgan’s assertion, “You can motivate people unless you understand what they care about and value” was, in my view, spot on and helpful. Part five was the challenge to be the best future leader. The book’s theme is probably this; “Leaders who are able to master these Notable Nine and help others around them master them as well will be the most successful and so will their organizations.” This book will add much to the discussion leadership in the future.
Currently in the U.S., there are roughly 1 supervisor to every 6 workers and 80% of these workers when surveyed, say that they can perform their jobs without having a supervisor. This survey shows that some supervisors or managers are better leaders than others. This is where the author asks the important question, “What is Leadership?”. After interviewing many CEO's of various companies for research, he found that they all had slightly different descriptions of leadership.
Morgan believes that having a clear definition of leadership is important to the success of a company. It was after researching that he found nine characteristics of a good leader which he calls the “Notable Nine”. The Notable Nine includes 4 mindsets and 5 skills that a leader needs to succeed in a future business.
There are comparisons between good and bad leaders. Bad or toxic leaders cause a lot of stress to their employees and are the reason most people look for other jobs. On the other hand, good leaders encourage their employees and let them know they are valued.
This is a good book for anyone who aspires to be a supervisor of any company, because leaders of the future will face an ever changing work environment in the next decade. It explains that it is important for future leaders to be ethical, have a diverse workforce and embrace new technology which can increase production and provide the tools that help leaders make better decisions. Overall, a very informative book.
At this time while the country is experiencing another national hardship, this book came in a clutch for me because I love learning about self-improvement. As businesses are lucking out on the opportunity for sales, the individuals are grasping at options that they can survive on. This book is the clarity everyone needs to step up to the plate and offer guidance to individuals amongst your team. We should be aiming to be a better community and company, which starts by leading by example. I recommend everyone to take a moment to read this book, it is both encouraging and inspiring to fulfill the current gaps that leaders struggle to fill.
I liked how the book is like a blueprint or a guide to leadership over the next decade. After all, what worked in the 1950s, or even the 2000s will be very different for what works for optimal leadership for the 2030s and beyond.
I liked how the book is set up, how the author, Morgan, put little markers throughout the book, like a lighthouse when Morgan has quotes from CEOs, and oftentimes little bullet point summaries at the end of chapters. I was pleasantly surprised by how many female CEOs the author interviewed and was able to use for the book.
I really liked the section entitled “A Family of Super Perpetual Learners” in chapter 12. It shows the seriousness his family took to learning English, and what lengths they took to learn about pronunciation and culture, especially in a time before the Internet. They thought it was important and really made it into a lifestyle, it wasn’t a 5 minute a day box to check off. Much like how the work environment isn’t so much a know it all experience, but a learn it all experience.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who works in any position of authority, a manager, a supervisor, or whatever it may be. It’s a pleasant eye opener.
This wasn't the easiest read, but I think that if you are business minded, it will be very helpful to you. There are explanations in this book for what good and bad leadership looks like and if you are in a leadership role, you can learn how to become a better leader through this book. The book breaks down why we do get frustrated with out jobs and if we can change our mindset about our job. This was a good part for me to take into perspective and try to change the way I look at things.
The author shares his experiences as well as gives great ideas from CEOs of other companies. The great thing about this book and the tips in it are that they can actually be used in real life, unlike a lot of the other self-help books that I have read.
I would 100% recommend this book to anyone who wants to change their mindset about their job and the people that they are currently working with and for.
