As the Program Coordinator for Royal Roads University's Global Leadership programs, I travelled with students to Ecuador for an experiential element of their global studies. We were privileged to form the relationships that allowed us to visit Afro-Ecuadorian communities and experience their culture, challenges, and leadership. Afro-Ecuadorians primarily live in a small community north of Quito and a small community near Esmeraldas.
How can we increase our leadership productivity at a time we seem to have fewer hours in the day? Our workplaces, our lives, and the larger global context are moving at much faster paces where minutes have become essentially nanoseconds. For French philosopher Michel Onfray (2015), this context of our modern time is a result of virtual reality.
