Leadership Is Evolving
If you want to improve your work environment so that people feel safer, more relevant, and unified, you need to practice leadership in a new way.
Near the end of the 20th Century, authors and researchers started shifting how they think about leadership. Within the past decade, this shift has evolved radically.
Unfortunately, few professionals know about how leadership principles, beliefs, and practices have changed. Many still operate from traditional leadership assumptions that can cause more harm than good.
Leadership development also is changing
Despite the fact that surveys continue to reflect how leadership development is one of the highest priorities for human capital management, studies show how ineffective many leadership development programs are. Whether because designers don’t know what works or are hesitant to change from what they are comfortable with doing, leadership development teams need to do more or something different to meet organizational and cultural needs.
Solutions for how to change aren’t documented well, but there have been some interesting advancements with leveraging cloud-based big data to accelerate the positive development of organizational culture.
Find out the latest critiques of leadership programs and how some have leveraged big data to improve their workforce’s leadership capacity.
