The challenge of developing new leadership in the early 21st century to lead transformative change is critical.. It is critical that leaders and followers alike understand and master purposefulness in new leadership development and its application in the global systems environment. This paper considers what is necessary in learning application for new leadership in a world fraught with little understood transformative change, and in an environment of accelerating change, increasing uncertainty, and growing complexity. This paper shows the importance of intentionality in deepening purposefulness and in the development of common will as key indicators of positive movement in transformative change. It concludes with implications for the future to do exceptionally well by intentionally doing better.
