A New Paradigm of Leadership –What is Needed Now and in the Future

Leading during times of unprecented change and upheaval is challenging leaders from every imaginable field. 

An increasing remote work force puts additional strain on organizations. Leaders of both small business and large organizations are being challenged on a multitude of fronts. 

As always, with change and upheaval comes opportunity. 

This presentation will look at leadership principals required to effectively lead organizations now and in the future. 

The role of EQ 

  • How does the concept of leadership change from Gen Y and Gen Z? 

We will look at generational cohort research to how different generations view leadership, their roles in organizations and their view of the nature of work.  

  • How does the changing face of leadership (leaders are increasingly representative of prior underrepresented groups) change the nature of it? 

This presentation will also look at research done by google and others on the nature of teams and to effectively create and lead teams to desired outcomes.
