If there is one thing that CEO's tell me they are looking for right now its great leaders.
An IBM survey in 2012 stated that companies main focus is technology. With the increase on focus on technology there is an increased need for extraordinary leadership. Leaders who can skillfully maneuver the fast paced change of technology AND have increased agility in leading change and influencing teams to greater results is increasingly hard to find. Why?
In my research and focus groups on what makes a great leader it seems that the skills of what USED to constitute a great leader have not been upgraded.
With the influx of technology there is a whole bunch of leaders using outdated skills - all leaders need to upgrade the leadership OS in order to be a GREAT leader in today's reality.
What does that mean and what will it take to find the great leaders that are out there?
