Maureen Metcalf, Forbes Magazine Counsel Member, understands that disruption is the best avenue into opportunity. Projecting leadership trends in 2021, she wrote an article on after reviewing the work she did for clients in 2020 and conducting 50 interviews with executives, thought leaders and academics.

Each trend reflects a variety of U.S. circumstances and global events that have occurred throughout 2020, and points towards creating a new and improved future within the business landscape.  According to Metcalf, “We are living at a fantastic time in history. We have the opportunity to plot a future that is unlike our past. We can leave a legacy where future generations look back and see this time as a renaissance — when the foundation was laid to create a future better than many people living could imagine.”
