The world of work is changing.
It is becoming more virtual, diverse, and dispersed, with an ever-greater need for improved leadership capability. The World Economic Forum predicts that 42% of current core skills will be outdated by 2022, and that, ‘Emotional Intelligence (EI), leadership, and social influence will see an outsized increase in demand'.
According to a management survey by the Roffey Park Institute, there is a leadership gap at work, with organizations falling short in meeting their present and future leadership needs.
For example, less than one-fifth of managers (17%) report that their organization has the leadership and people skills to take advantage of AI (Artificial Intelligence); nearly one in three managers (31%) do not believe that their leaders and managers are able to engage and facilitate collaboration across generations; and almost half (49%) do not believe that the management in their organization has the skills needed to effectively manage virtual teams.
