“Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked;
leadership is defined by results not attributes.” ~Peter Drucker

United States leadership, policies and strategies must be forthcoming not only to renew the American Economy, but eliminate uncertainties in our country that has hindered our economic restart. America needs to examine the major national security issues, provide opportunities to domestic and global challenges, apply pro-US foreign policy and applying sage policies supporting Sustainability facing the United States in global marketplace.

The Real Challenges to Growth by Michael Spence looks at many of these issues and asks what could be addressed in a increasing competitive global marketplace that would also lay the underpinnings for future prosperity and influence.

Michael Spence is a Nobel laureate in economics, is professor of economics at NYU’s Stern School of Business, and a distinguished visiting fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations: http://blogs.cfr.org/renewing-america/2014/01/23/the-real-challenges-to-growth/

  • Natural curiosity is a catalyst, curiosity propels us to seek knowledge.
  • Being informed, individuals are then willing to experiment.
  • Engagement within the community and align individual values with other people and organizations that have a like mindset.

How do we become sustainable? Leaders of the 21st century will be responsible of planetary stewardship for our Earth. This means laying the foundation, which the entire Earth community is secure, managed, and prosperous.  Stewardship is based on these five key principles:

So, where can that behavior be focused? On a personal level, each of us can be responsible for Stewardship in our own lives. Here are examples:

  • recycle daily waste, recycle old clothing, furniture, books,
