What kind of leaders do you have in your organisation?

For the past 100 years, leadership has not changed much. Most companies still offer a high percentage of decision-making power to a select few. Leaders still call the shots of what their teams work on, how they work, and when and where they work. Many leaders tend to micromanage instead of inspire their people. They act as gatekeepers, rather than advocates, for career development.

Leaders are critical to building top-notch employee experiences and thriving workplace cultures. Research shows leaders influence the most important aspects of the workplace for employees: purpose, opportunity, wellbeing, appreciation, and success. And yet as the modern workplace has developed and evolved, traditional leadership styles have not. What worked for factories in the 1900’s no longer applies to today’s mobile, deskless, and autonomous workforce. Traditional leadership has become outdated, with Millennials and Gen-Zers rejecting traditional leadership practices. Traditional leadership, as we’ve known it, is dying.
