Traditional leadership has been about taking a one-size-fits all approach to get things done. For ages, leadership practices have been passed down through generations with the idea that these basic principles can never be waivered. Even if the age-old theory of “Leaders are born” is correct, only the one who adapts can survive and succeed.
In the last decade, the business world has seen seismic shifts and the year 2020 added an additional transformational wave impelling leaders to alter their traditional practices. In this context, leveraging the “wirearchies” (a term coined by Jon Husband in 1999) within the organization, living up to the expectations of new age employees while playing an active role in their development, and continuously upskilling oneself seems like the only route to successful adaptation for leaders.
Easier said than done, how can this be achieved? What skills do leaders need to develop in these rapidly changing times? How can leaders live up to the expectations of new age employees? What steps can leaders take to revamp their learning strategies?
Whether you are leading a business or driving the learning strategy in your organization, these questions certainly cross your mind. Join the speakers to reflect on and discuss similar emerging questions associated with rapid evolution of the leadership context.
