The digital age is transforming our work and our personal life. However, digital change must be accompanied by the ability of leaders, at all levels of the organization, to lead their teams in a difficult and uncertain future. This course proposes a new mindset by teaching five skill sets necessary for success in the digital age.
Being a leader in the digital age means developing a new mindset and five skills.
- Ability to lead beyond the boundaries of the leader's unity, organization, geography and formal authority.
- Competence in building relationships based on trust: in the digital age, trust definitively replaces formal authority as a tool for leadership.
- Ability to train and lead virtual teams that can compete and outperform traditional teams.
- Ability to collaborate and co-create the future with customers and other stakeholders.
- Learn dynamically: the competitive advantage in the digital age is the ability to learn and adapt in an "emerging" way, faster and better than your competitors.
The goal of this course is to help you immediately apply what you learn regardless of your situation or your level or position in your organization.
