The current economy needs a new breed of leaders and to remain competitive organisations need to revamp their internal leadership programmes to build new leaders that have interdisciplinary skills, with an understanding of different business functions, industries, and technologies.
Leadership is about mindset and I truly believe that leadership is something that can be taught and cultivated and is within reach of everyone no matter what background or title you carry. If you look at the most impactful leaders around the world, most of them have been self-selected and self-made. They share an active curiosity, intelligence and the ability to learn from experience. They are people that are extremely self-aware and understand how to dream, empower others and make it happen.
