We are now living in a VUCA world – one of Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity. Change is all around us. The boundaries between our private and professional lives are blurred - and balancing both is increasingly challenging. Combine this with the many changes affecting companies on a day to day basis, increased expectations from clients, the community and employees, it is easy to understand why leadership has never been more challenging. We need to place greater emphasis on individual accountability and performance at every level and reduce the layers of management to create better, faster and more efficient responses to customer need. These changes mean many people will need to significantly change the way the work.

They include the need to:

  • Work more autonomously to produce greater results
  • Collaborate more effectively with peers and diverse stakeholders
  • Develop new skills, behaviours and mindsets
  • Assume greater personal responsibility
  • Work effectively across multiple specialisations
  • Create and innovate to keep up with change
  • Manage stress and mental health issues
  • Be more socially and emotionally intelligent

In short, people will need to step up to take a greater responsibility for their self-leadership.

In this presentation, Grant Herbert, CEO of People Builders, will show you what behaviours to focus on and why.
