On this episode I chat to Leadership and Culture expert Brad Raynor. Brad chats about the key differences between 21st century leadership and the old way to lead. We also delve into what allows a CEO to be successful in the modern age. Leaders need to demonstrate that they are leading by example in the modern age and ensuring our ‘Shadow Leadership’ is in line with our leadership objectives.
Technologies may change in an organisation, but people will always require leadership that makes them feel empowered. This way, no matter how tough things get or how the landscape changes, organisations can continue to build that transition to a more ‘tech’ driven & agile culture.
We also chat about how to develop future leaders within your organisation, and that promoting experts in a field of profession doesn’t always translate to successful leaders! We need to clearly define the boundaries between ‘Middle’ management & ‘Micromanagement’.
Ultimately we want a customer centric culture within our companies, which involves tech companies needing to attract the right talent, building the importance of ‘why’ whilst adapting for agility & change.
