2020 Leader: Leadership in the New World

Radiocasts | April 29, 2014 by Bonnie D. Graham

The buzz: Leaders.

The workplace of the future is already being shaped by breakthrough technologies, the entry of the millennial generation and the impending departure of baby boomers. The convergence of these realities is forcing businesses to rethink their talent management and leadership approaches.

Does your company have a plan yet for this brave new world? If not, what are you waiting for?

The experts speak.

Ravin Jesuthasan, Towers Watson:“The future of work will place different requirements on the next generation of leaders: new skills, agility, ability to balance competing objectives like never before, and a greatly heightened tolerance for ambiguity and risk.”

David Learmond, The Conference Board:“’Business needs a leadership correction.’ This is the key message from over 100 companies the Conference Board surveyed in Asia, Europe and North America.” (‘Go Where There be Dragons. Leadership Essentials for 2020’)

Niki Ernst, TEDx: “If you want to achieve something big, focus on little things with great passion” (Eckhart Tolle).

Karie Willyerd, SAP: “Millennials will make up half the workplace in a few years, largely due to the unprecedented exit of Baby Boomers. In the US, 10,000 people a day turn 65. Few workplaces have planned well for this exit, and for what it will take to lead the next generation of employees.”
