Unlearning and Leadership

Unlearning is more important than learning for modern leaders. Leaders can have no appreciation of understanding the situations of the 21st century without full control on unlearning. Unlearning has to be made integral part of decision making for leaders.
Most people have grown in the last few decades through suitable education, good opportunities, hard work and acquiring wisdom. The decisions have to be made from mind and logic rather than heart. And that is the core of the information age.
In spite of learning, changing places, new professions, astronomical growth, etc individuals will be able to manage their present, and plan their future, through systematic unlearning only.
