In the world of reskilling, it is better to be acting in service and letting the group of employees do their own thing. Being a facilitator and an enabler, while having an empathic attitude will help employees successfully make the transition as leaders in the organization's new way of thinking.
It is important to instil the workforce with the right mindset and to make sure that the leaders are putting human values at their core.
Executive Summary If organizations want their investment in leadership development to more fully pay off, it is essential that they prioritize mindset development - specifically by targeting growth, learning, deliberative, and promotion leader mindsets. As mindsets shift and develop, leaders' thinking, learning, and behaviors will naturally improve because they are seeing an interpreting their situations more effectively.
In business today, there's a growing trend toward agile leadership: a focus on fast decision making, short-term goals, and the empowerment of individuals. What began as a leadership approach confined to IT departments-business units that must respond quickly to rapidly changing technology-has become a way of life for leaders generally.
Leadership development continues to be a significant challenge for companies around the world, as the transition to the new digital organization creates even larger leadership gaps. High-performing leaders today need different skills and expertise than in generations past, yet most organizations have not moved rapidly enough to develop digital leaders, promote young leaders, and build new leadership models.
