While the massive technology disruption and the rise of the fourth industrial revolution has given way for new possibilities over the last decade, leadership development has conspicuously remained stagnant. The training and leadership development strategies have largely been the same for many years. Latest reports show that most leadership programs prefer static training models that give little attention to the current market dynamics and leadership requirements. Adding to the woes, inadequate feedback fails to deliver the insights required for fostering leadership skills.
What is needed today is an open mind at the top management level to embrace transformations in all aspects of training and leadership development. The new-age leaders must meet the unique requirements of the modern-day workplace environment. In addition, they need new competencies to pursue transitional business goals and lead with agility, among others. Another factor that is expected to have a significant impact on shaping workplace environments in the coming years is the emergence of an alternate workforce such as freelance employees, gig workers, and contract workers. These type of workers have become crucial, especially at a time when the world is battling against the novel coronavirus pandemic. Moreover, technological advancements, such as AI and automation, will continue to reduce the need for mundane and repetitive jobs at workplaces. AI can be expected to become an integral part of leadership development.
