The only constant regarding current and future challenges faced by managers is change. Globalization and technological advances have increased knowledge and intensified product cycles, resulting in completely new business models and products. New competitors are emerging and the base of former global players is eroding. In addition, individual customer needs are becoming increasingly important. The war for talents is in full swing, corporate cultures are democratizing themselves and the demands of their own teams are growing. Emails, apps and gadgets have found their way into our daily lives and many of us lose focus more easily. Our world is rapidly warming up, and as a response to legal and social pressures, businesses need to develop innovative and cost-effective ways to limit their adverse effects on climate change.
The servant leader, who is able to lead either authoritarian or cooperative / coaching depending on the situation, is in our opinion the answer to future challenges. The Digital Leader Academy provides your managers with all the knowledge and methods that a modern leader needs for the new world of work (VUCA World). We introduce the new work tools of startups and link those with the processes established in your organization. Furthermore we prepare for a mindset which supports the corporate sustainability strategy.
Over a period of up to 12 months, your managers and leaders will begin to reflect more and welcome the continuous change. Your teams will practice the meaningful use of digital media. They will live your corporate vision and values. They will lead self-directed teams with visible results in a healthy and experimental culture. They keep mother nature in mind with their holistic approach.
