The Future of Leadership

Five key megatrends to watch and prepare for. Attend our Leadership Lab March 19-20, 2015 to continue the conversation.

1

Individualization

Leaders will increasingly need to balance individual and organizational needs in an era of a Do It Yourself (DIY) ethos, mass customization, and the convergence between work and private life.

2

Transition to Flexibility

Frequent reconfiguration of working arrangements and social networks create a need for more flexibility in organizational design and processes—things like virtual teams and technology convergence.

3

Demography

There are cultural challenges that come with changes in demographics, such as the generational shift in my own office or intercultural differences introduced by globally distributed employees. Women’s participation in organizations—especially in leadership roles—are part of this megatrend as well.

4

Rapid social and economic change.

This highlights the effects of globalization, especially relevant to intercultural understanding and leading cross-cultural teams.

5

Social responsibility and Sustainability

Leaders have an increasingly important role in securing sustainable economic and social growth.
