Leadership Essentials: Future Readiness
A future-ready organisation reviews and adapts its business models, skillset and processes to stay ahead of the competition in all aspects of its business. Leaders need to develop new skills to deal with the uncertainty and ambiguity inherent in today’s business environment as a result of, for example, emerging trends, new ways of working, disruptive new technologies, and threats which are not yet quantified or even apparent on the horizon.
‘Leadership Essentials: Future Readiness’ provides an overview of why future readiness is essential for leadership capability and includes ‘Top Tips’ on how future readiness can help you become a better leader.
The Essentials leaflet is supported by three Spotlights that look at future readiness in more detail to help you improve your leadership skills:
- Digital Leadership
- Scenario Planning
"Today’s leaders need to be obsessed with finding the absolute best technology to keep their customers happy and engaged. They need to be constantly considering how to answer customer demands before they even ask."
Daniel Newman CEO, Broadsuite Media Group
"Missing market shifts and misreading important trends can be career-limiting. Blackberry’s co-CEOs misread the iPhone, dismissing it as a niche product. Kodak invented the digital camera but stood by as it unravelled the company’s business model."
Robert B. Tucker (2016)
"Think of scenarios as different hands of cards you might be dealt; think of strategies as the way you would play those cards."
Jay Ogilvy (2015)
