I can't remember a time when so many business people were anxious to learn exactly who will be president of the United States for the next four years. Perhaps because of the tough economic climate we've all been fighting through for the past four years, it seems many business leaders yearn for the certainty of knowing exactly how government policies, regulations and tax frameworks will impact them and their enterprises moving forward so they can effectively plan for the future.

"I believe strongly that leadership is much more than managing well," Gates told the audience at the recent World Business Forum in New York. "Real leadership is a rare commodity."

 



Finding new ways to do business is always a challenge, but for success in an ever-changing world, business leaders today must be willing to try new things and remain extremely flexible. Read what some of the world's greatest innovators had to say in this ExecuNet exclusive.
