Many years ago, good leadership meant empathy, respect, openness and listening. 

This has not changed to this day.

 

What is new are the diverse transformation processes and the constant change in requirements and circumstances. These take place at a rapid pace and pose new challenges for managers.

 

Participation, trust and innovation shape the corporate culture. This means that corporate values are created in an appreciative, employee-oriented climate. In this sense, digitization is not just a technological leap forward.

 

It is the engine of cultural change.

 

It requires a new understanding of leadership. Managers are called upon to shape and accompany the digital transformation in which they:

 

  • Dissolve power-oriented hierarchies and build up network structures

  • Trust in the commitment of their employees

  • Motivate instead of control

  • Passing on knowledge instead of hoarding it

  • Taking oneself back to give space to others

  • Recognizing the well-being of the team and employees as more important than one's own ego

Managers are required to adapt the values in the companies to the new challenges on the market.

 

 

Agile leadership culture means:

 

• Focusing on customers and employees

• Customer-oriented organizational structure

• Organized self-responsibility

• Agile mindset

 

Ask yourself: Do you have an agile corporate culture?

 

As a manager or entrepreneur, it is important to constantly question one's own management style and working methods. What is a good way today may not necessarily be the right way tomorrow.

 

Ultimately, the right mindset,  in other words, cultural change, is crucial.

 

With our many years experience, we support you in bringing people in line with the rapidly changing environment and technological advancement, and further develop your organization.
