Daring, Bold & Different – Virtual Leadership beyond COVID-19 by Professor Martin Roll, IE Associate
Leadership in the 21st century is influenced by constant change. Next generation leadership will have to deal with multiple demanding global challenges spanning from geopolitical volatility, technological disruptions, economic and political uncertainty, the rise of new challengers and shifting demographics.
On top of an already challenging world comes the Covid-19 pandemic, forcing an unwilling pit-stop for the world. This crisis creates opportunities, and in the next 6-12 months the world will see a re-balance of winners and losers.
Question is: How do leaders cope?
Implications Next Generation Virtual Leaders are how to balance their short- and long-term lens, building resilience and character, how to keep a horizontal and vertical outlook, balance global perspectives & local insights, and how to lead from a strong strategic compass.
Martin Roll will demonstrate how successful Next Generation Virtual Leaders develop and employ 6 important strategic skills and personal traits which will help them to lead with clarity through turbulent times: Purpose, Resilience, Networks, Long-term lens, Adaptation & Agility, and People & Culture.
The success of Next Generation Virtual Leaders will be defined by their ability and willingness to drive a powerful transformation agenda: Daring, Bold & Different.
