The future of work requires nimble leadership

The future of work requires nimble leadership

Successfully leading a company into the future is no longer relying on command-and-control leadership. Instead, the emphasis is on distributed leadership - giving people autonomy to innovate and working in flexible teams so that companies can respond to technology and external risks.

Top leaders are flipping their hierarchy. Their job is not to have all the answers but to help people contribute the best of their expertise, knowledge, skills, and ideas.

Distributed leadership fare better

Research judged the success and challenges of two firms based on four key capabilities.

  • Relating: Seeing the environment through others’ perspectives
  • Sensemaking: Creating and updating maps of a complex environment to engage more effectively in it.
  • Visioning: Aligning the leader's vision with the organisation's goal.
  • Inventing: Creating new structures or processes.

The company that enacted distributed leadership fared better than the one with a command-and-control leadership model.

Moving to a distributed leadership model

  • Let those at lower levels who have vetted and tested ideas participate in leading the change process.
  • Give people a say in matching themselves with roles.
  • Have an honest conversation with potential team members about their capacity to implement and commit.
  • Senior leaders still facilitate and enable entrepreneurial activity.
  • The change will require some combination of command-and-control and cultivate-and-coordinate styles.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug
