In our global world with an increasing number of cross-cultural and counter-cultural contacts, leaders and organizations face constantly changing cultures and values coming from other countries, their own country, and even from within their own organization. How can today’s leaders prepare their organizations for continuity through whatever the unknown future brings? This paper examines(write in present tense and use future-tense for what the reader will do after reading the document) that question through Peter’s first letter to the culturally buffeted believers in the first century.
Drawing from 1 Peter, this paper presents foundational creative and innovative leadership principles to take an organization through turbulence to survive and thrive. To aid us in ferreting out the principles, we will use Robbins’ sacred texture analysis which encompasses social, cultural, and psychological textural lenses. We will also learn from a number of authors to gain insights into the times. From our effort and resources, this paper will posit three creative and innovative principles useful to twenty-first century leaders to prepare and lead today’s organizations through current turbulent times to survive and thrive.
The principles on which we will focus are:
Finally, this paper challenges organizational leaders to take the lessons learned from Peter and leverage them into creative and innovative organizations able to adapt to the future emerging world.
