If the recent disruption experienced by businesses teaches us anything about how to prepare for the future, it is that we must put leadership development and effective learning at the top of our agenda, in order to prepare the next generation of business leaders for an unpredictable and volatile world.
A recent Deloitte study revealed that 63% of US millennials feel their leadership skills are not being sufficiently developed. This not only creates uncertainty in the future of the business world, but spells disaster for talent retention in the short them.
But what are the skills we should be nourishing in our leaders, both present and future? Increasingly, traditional notions of what makes a great leader have come into question, with ‘soft skills’, such as communication and creativity, coming to the fore.
How do you create a culture that values and inspires these traits? When you can help people tap into their passions and talents, it can inspire greatness in your organisation and prepare your employees to face uncertainty with conviction.
