Leaders of organizations are often keeping their eyes tuned in to the best leadership books or business world trends. I’m a big fan of both of those sources as key for leading in today’s world. But don’t stop there. Many of the changes taking place today aren’t addressed directly by the ‘typical’ conversation partners. And there are small, but significant changes taking place which are changing the fabric of society. And while we don’t yet know the impact of these changes, we do need to be attentive to them.

Check out his list. What are your thoughts? Have you seen the impact of these trends in your ministry? What do these trends mean about shifts in life patterns? What, if anything, would you add?
