A crucial leadership challenge after the US Presidential Election
So far, there have been two main storylines emanating from US President Barack Obama’s surprisingly comfortable re-election on November 6.
The first is that President Obama won not so much because of his policies but because of organization and demographics, with his highly functioning “ground game” galvanizing a broad coalition of “diverse” Americans to come out to vote for their multicultural leader.
The second is that the Republicans failed to recognize and embrace this social and demographic change and must now revamp their party’s focus and platform to be able to come back in from the electoral wilderness in two years time.
But there is a third narrative that has not been explored so much as yet and it relates to this blogger’s personal diversity journey.
