Leading in Disruptive Times: The challenges faced by leaders
Today’s current disruptive economic environment poses daily challenges to people in leadership positions that can be complex and difficult to navigate. Some challenges are relatively straightforward and simple to overcome whereas others are far more complex.
These challenges may arise internally within an organisation or be thrust on the business by external forces. For example, internal forces may arise from the sudden loss of a key member/s of staff, or they may be external such as a cyber hacking attack.
In addition to these type of challenges, leaders now also have to contend with a workforce that is reportedly largely disengaged from corporate objectives. The workforce dynamics have also altered quite radically over the years: the workplace is now more multigenerational, multi-cultural and diverse in every respect than it traditionally has been.
Some reports state that in the fast-paced society within which we live, we are now required to make hundreds of decisions throughout each day. In addition, increased use of technology has added to this situation and has apparently raised the levels of stress and anxiety in the workplace. This has, in turn, placed added load on leaders as their staff turn to them for solutions to this situation on an ever-increasing scale.
