Worried about becoming obsolete, being disrupted?
In Australia we’re seeing an interesting picture emerge – the combination of the manic rate of change and the introduction of new technologies and digitisation are transforming the world as we know it. Technical skills are necessary but no longer sufficient to sustain positive business growth and most of our leaders are not equipped with the skills required to stay ahead of the game and risk becoming obsolete, To stay in the game leaders will have no choice but to adapt. Agile, people-focussed leadership and the ability to innovate are paramount to success, or risk being left behind.
So just what are the skills we need our leaders to demonstrate? Some of the top 10 skills leaders need by 2020 are strong visionary leadership, courage to challenge the status quo and take risks, creativity, cognitive flexibility, emotional intelligence and the ability to collaborate.
Don’t get left behind.
