If you understand leadership and have been dubbed a great leader in the past, do you believe that you will remain the successful captain of your business using the methods you learnt at college, from your handed down manuals, your emulation of your predecessors who led the organization for years and many other sources/methods that were used by great leaders to achieve results?
According to the Economic World Forum article by Paolo Gallo 04/2019 6th edition" Disruption in technology is not only here to stay but is moving faster than we thought." The real question is whether leadership is also adapting to this new business environment at the same pace?
- Rapid technology evolution – adoption of new technologies requiring new ways of working (AI, Robotics, blockchain etc)
- Changes in employee expectations – millennials, Diversity & Inclusion, Pandemics with Working From Home (WFH); reluctance to return to the office
- Socio-economic issues – shifting demographics, urbanisation, organisational culture dynamics
- Individualism – job security, flexibility, global remote working

Agility is the new deal breaker in leadership as leaders have to embrace and celebrate change. Successful leaders in the 4th Industrial revolution must see change as an opportunity to grow their businesses and innovate not as a burden, and the successful leaders will have to have the right Leadership DNA that will set them apart from the rest.
