Kate Sweetman

Author & Business Strategist and Leadership Authority

Kate Sweetman believes that the world is overdue for a major leadership upgrade: full stop. Too many companies are relying on old "software" as they try to incorporate new technologies, business models, and, yes, millennials. Her research shows a new way forward.

"Companies are trying to succeed in the 4th Industrial Revolution with 1.0 cultural software."
