To lead change in a complex, fast moving business environment, Pulse Leaders know that it’s essential to establish the right values around how they want to behave. Self-aware leadership is all about the way each of us look at the world.
So what are some of the new values emerging in organisations?
I see a more Visioning versus Commercial approach emerge. It’s not just enough anymore to push for profit, it is essential that the organisation has a deep purpose at its core.
- Why do we do what we do?
- What is the short, medium and long term impact?
The second value that is important is Open versus Closed.
Ask yourself, do you currently have an open or a closed culture?
I see a huge shift happening across organisations where people value and want to create Kinetic Cultures of openness, transparency and open floor plans. The age of the closed departments with lots of silos is over.
Leaders must embrace the digital age of transparency. The risks are higher yet the rewards are greater.
