The most important leadership challenge of twenty-first century is stepping up your organization’s capacity to rapidly respond to accelerating change. Meeting this challenge requires leaders who have the skills to quickly transform existing business models while creating new, and sometimes radically different, models to keep pace with fast-changing markets. The days where leaders took charge,” crafted a plan, and extracted compliance are fading fast as a new breed of leaders are redefining the critical skills to steer successful organizations in world of relentless change. Today’s best leaders are sense-makers who are capable of responding to fast-changing developments because they have the ability to rapidly aggregate and leverage the collective intelligence distributed across their organizations. What separates this new breed from traditional leaders is their competency at building and leading highly resilient peer-to-peer networks that are flexible, agile and innovative in their mission to continually delight their customers.
