We’re in the midst of a most challenging time for leaders in businesses of all types – small businesses, divisions, companies, multi-nationals, and everything in between. It’s a “perfect storm” of leadership demands.

Leaders of organization’s today are faced not only with evolving performance requirements with aggressive global competitors but with generations with widely differing preferences, including older workers keeping their jobs longer and working alongside Gen-Z employees . . . remote contributors with team members working from all corners of the globe . . . technological advances and imperatives that don’t always work as designed . . . social media’s immediacy . . . differing spiritual beliefs . . . differing lifestyles . . . and more.

Managing one or two of these demands is doable for a talented business team and a competent, inspiring leader.

Managing ALL of these powerful and divergent demands – at the same time – is beyond the experience, skills, and confidence of most teams and most leaders today.

In this perfect storm, the demands on leaders are rapidly changing – but the mindset and skillset of leaders has not shifted or adapted to these new requirements.

In today’s three-minute episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, I specify what leaders must become – what they must evolve into – in order to serve well in the future of work.

My Culture Leadership Charge series features short (two-to-three-minute) videos that describe proven culture leadership and servant leadership practices that boost engagement, service, and results across your work teams, departments, regions, and even your entire company.

Each episode’s “charge” is a challenge for everyone in your organization – not just leaders – to refine their behaviors and ensure everyone is treated respectfully at all times.
