2020 was the year of disruption. Unlike other crises in recent history, COVID-19 directly or indirectly affected almost every individual in the world. Economies, communities and livelihoods were upended, and the business world witnessed immense change in all its corners.
Future leaders have a tough job to do. Along with steering their organisation, they must also unite, engage and inspire a weary workforce in order to yield sustainable business outcomes. The best way to do this is by investing in human capital and considering employees holistically.
The concept of leadership as we know it is in a state of flux; what constitutes “good leadership” evolves with each passing year and this has only accelerated under COVID-19. The difference between leaders who will “succeed” vs. those who will “fail” depends, to a large extent, on the willingness and capability of HR to identify and develop these skills.
