In the post-pandemic world, leaders have been tested like never before. The fundamental skills and attributes they previously required, developed in the context of having predominantly face-to-face contact with their workforce, have changed. New expectations might not come naturally: virtually communicating the culture of their organization, being sensitive to the excess of emotional stress their workforce is under. At a time when people are more reliant on them, it’s important for leaders to focus on themselves – how can they gain confidence when faced with setbacks? How do they build resilience amid mounting pressure? What skills are required to lead into the Future of Work?
