Fields Wicker-Miurin: Learning from leadership’s “missing manual”

[ted id=692 width=560 height=315]

Leadership doesn’t have a user’s manual, but Fields Wicker-Miurin says stories of remarkable, local leaders are the next best thing. At a TED salon in London, she shares three.

Fields Wicker-Miurin wants to improve the quality and impact of leadership worldwide by discovering leaders in unique, local settings and connecting them with one another.

Why you should listen to her:

Fields Wicker-Miurin is co-founder of Leaders’ Quest, an organization that brings together leaders from around the world to learn about key trends in their regions, and to explore their role as leaders. Through regional “Quests,” leaders learn how their efforts are interconnected and have the potential to improve the world at the global level, too. Leaders’ Quest is cross-cultural, interdisciplinary, and multi-generational.

Wicker-Miurin is also a director of CDC Group, a UK development finance institution, and Savills, an international property advisory company. She frequently speaks and writes about 21st-century leadership issues, and is a Governor of King’s College London.
