Heroic leadership is over and team leadership has set in. Leadership is less about creating followers toward the change than it is about influencing the conversation and driving the collaboration toward the common goal. The definition for leadership has changed. Leadership can and should be encouraged to emerge at all levels in an organization regardless of role or title. This self-driven, self-initiating capacity has substantial implications for how leaders are identified, assessed and developed.
Social leading is what leaders are capable of today. This means they are effective in understanding traditional work of leadership while at the same time are capable of bridging the gap to the less formal social structure of an organization – the place where the conversations are happening, where collaboration is taking place, where communities (divisions, work groups, project teams) are connecting, where decision making lives in the moment. It is precisely this bridge that brings agility to an organization in times of adaptability and fast change.
“At the moment, few organizations have enough talented leaders in place…and the issue for organizations worldwide is that leadership development efforts are not paying off. The capability gap is widening and leadership pipelines are reportedly weak across all sectors and industries…Capable leadership talent is very rare.”
– Bersin by Deloitte 2016 *High Impact Leadership Study

Focus on the Leadership Team
Business challenges continue to grow exponentially in terms of complexity, interconnectedness, the speed of change, and there is more to come. No single leader can effectively meet all the demands placed on them. More brains working to create solutions, generate ideas, create strategies have always been better than one.
