Leadership Global Summit
“The Future of Leadership”
June 15, 2016
With the contributions of international academics and experts from the corporate world, institutions and sport, the Summit illustrated the tools and skills leaders require to continue to lead their own teams successfully. The reference context will in fact become increasingly erratic, multicultural and international and technological innovation will render the boundaries of organizations much more permeable.
The Summit especially examined the following challenges:
- How to choose and support a leader?
- How to measure the team’s efficacy?
- How to take decisions and manage conflicts?
- How to manage the changes, in an increasingly more complex world?
The replies provided by the speakers were unconventional:
- Managerless Organizations: it is not possible to respond to volatility with even more bureaucracy. The winners will be those organizations that are simple and agile, with fast, flexible leaders.
- Flexible Work Arrangements: once targets have been set, individuals will work when and where they want, leaders will learn to live with this new complexity
- Third Metric: success no longer coincides with just money and power
- Timeless Leadership: even if the speed at which changes occur is increasing exponentially, the fundamental principles of leadership remain unchanged.
