Leadership Trends to Watch
The 2020 Talent Predictions white paper from the Institute for Corporate Productivity says 2020 is shaping up to be an exciting year, according to thought leaders and executives from IBM, Microsoft, Starbucks and others.
I4cp asked the question, “What's the single most important practice or initiative that organizations must pursue in the year ahead in order to best meet their future talent imperatives?
The response from Sanyin Siang, Professor and Executive Director for Leadership & Ethics at Duke University, emphasizes essential interdependencies:
“1. We must shift our development framework from focus on a singular leader to a team of leaders. The development isn't just about the one individual—it's about how each individual's development impacts the whole. Resilience in an ecosystem results from teamwork.
2. We must find a way to reward and promote those whose contributions are not
always visible but just as vital. When we view an organization through the lens of an ecosystem, we will see there are members whose roles may not have a direct first-order effect but who all contribute to the overall success of the community.”
