Información general

The Digital Age is here. It is enabling the most comprehensive transformation of our work and personal life in history. The Digital Age promises a more prosperous and fulfilling life for everyone globally. But that promise is only as good as the capability of leaders at all levels of the organization to lead their units to success in a challenging and uncertain future. 

Leading in the Digital Age develops a new mindset and five Skill Sets needed for success in the Digital Age:
  1. Leading Beyond the Edges of the leader’s unit, organization, geography, and formal authority, enabled by Digital Age tools, to provide innovative solutions to customers and other stakeholders.
  2. Building Deep Trust Relationships: In the Digital Age, trust replaces formal authority as the basis for leadership.
  3. Forming and Leading Virtual Teams: The Digital Age relentlessly shrinks time space.  Properly formed and led, virtual teams turn this challenge into an advantage over traditional teams.
  4. Collaborating and Co-Creating the Future with customers and other stakeholders. Multi-organizational value networks formed from a portfolio of relationships are replacing single-company-owned, linear value chains.  Leading in this new business model requires a “co-creation skill set.”
  5. Learning Dynamically: The only sustainable competitive advantage in the Digital Age is the capability to learn, adapt, implement, and learn as you go, faster and better than your competitors.
Leading in the Digital Age uses interactive tools to help you apply in real time what you learn from the content, other participants, and your own experience, to dynamically lead continuous innovation and change.
