We’ve been hard at work studying what’s required from the modern leader to be successful. Through 35,000 assessments and hundreds of interviews, we discovered the most important job a leader has today is to elevate others. To do so requires the simultaneous use of high levels of love and discipline. From our research, we created the EO Framework designed around 16 proven competencies (8 love and 8 discipline). John Eades, LearnLoft CEO and host of the Follow My Lead Podcast, has turned our research into a book, Elevate Others: The New Model to Successfully Lead Today set to be released in 2019. The only way to get the EO Framework before then and gain access to our EOCs (Elevating Others Coaches) is to partner with us to create a EO Leadership Development Program at your company or attend the Ultimate Leadership Academy for individuals.

Let's say, for example, on Massive Open Online Courses platforms, such as Coursera and edX, they start offering VR classrooms. When you connect to the classroom, you would be able to see other students around you and chat with them in natural languages and hear them in the natural languages; as a plus, there could be a prompt translator to support cross-cultural communication.
