The leaders of tomorrow are not necessarily going to be the ones with the most impressive technical knowledge or skills, but rather the ones that can innovate, predict, and adapt fast in a rapidly changing world.
In essence, the future of leadership is three-fold.
A growth mindset.
Investment in their development and growth. A focus on goal setting, cultivating, and optimizing employee performance.
An emphasis on vision and focus.
They’ll be able to influence and connect at all levels of a company. In the future (and now) when major technology trends are identified, it will be critical for CEOs to make it clear what their vision is to their teams.
They need to define their vision and communicate it to the business and its employees. They need to hire and grow leaders that can help get the right team together to deliver on that vision, and then communicate their vision effectively to all employees.
They’ll be better at building a culture of trust and empathy.
An aptitude for Innovation.
Leaders of tomorrow will need to be able to innovate quickly and adapt on the fly.
To meet the speed of change, leaders must create the environment for staff to innovate.
Also, new leaders will need to be agile, turning their vision into reality while other leaders stay calm and informed.
The leader of tomorrow is a combination of vision, speed, innovation and people.
