One of the most exciting things — and sometimes the most daunting things — about the world is that it’s always continuously changing especially new generation leaders.
The skills that were crucial yesterday might not be quite as important tomorrow. That’s because the assets and motivations that drive companies are changing more than ever before.
The practices of the 1950s might have been effective then, but they would likely be more or less useful when trying to tackle the demands of the 2020s.
What Change is Needed?
So what are these changes that leaders need to respond to? While there are many things, perhaps the one that’s difficult to pin down is the vast amounts of information and data at an organization’s disposal.
How to utilize, curate, and store this data can be a problematic point for companies, and that’s where leaders coming to prominence in this era (and in the future) will need to know how to adapt their skills to meet these demands.
Difference between Now and Then
Historically, leadership has been all about the people that are being led — it’s about building a team, solving problems, communicating ideas, and so on.
In the digital age, it’s less personal, more analytical. Leaders must know how to curate information and preserve that data so that it’s easily accessible (and of use) to the organization.
