CEO Conclave 2022
Leadership before pandemic and after the pandemic has evolved to newer levels. The pandemic has resulted in a cascading effect across industries, making corporate leaders acknowledge the importance for upskilling and reskilling to stay competitive whilst engaging with unpredictable market uncertainties. Technological disruption has become the norm, and the pivot towards digitisation of businesses calls for companies to redefine how leadership must function in the post-pandemic world.
In a survey of CEOs by Fortune magazine, only 7% of CEOs believed their companies were building effective global leaders. Such a paradigm underscores the need for upskilling leaders. With automation and big data taking over the world, the leaders of tomorrow need to improve their technical abilities and data proficiency while also developing soft skills such as effective communication, team-building, strategic thinking, creativity, innovation, and empathy.
