To get to the fast changing future is going to require a whole lot of willingness to hear things we might not want to hear. Future of work needs leaders who can give candid feedback.
I remember in my early banking career I had been through a series of bank robberies and my boss told me ‘you are a lousy leader’. Perhaps her words were a little harsh but I can tell you it was excellent feedback at the time. I thought that because I handled myself well under pressure that I was a great leader. Carol pointed out to me that ‘one skill’ does not make a master leader that a master leader transfers skills and helps people go beyond the leader.
