Sociological study demonstrates that any societal collective, whether large or small, is an evolving entity subject to the forces of change. Given the interdependency of industry and cultural convention, it's imperative that business strategies within a defined societal structure keep pace with technological advances and cultural shifts within the community. Over the course of time, societal constructs evolved to support and regulate environmental conditions and the interactions of people within the workplace. While some business leaders advance in real time with shifting conditions and cultural movements, many do not.

This chapter examines a new leadership paradigm intended to promote workplace democracy in an empathetic environment based on inclusion, individual growth, and opportunity for all.
