In the Future, We Will All Have the Chance to be Leaders


Share on LinkedIn

I was asked recently to comment on the suggestion that organisations are becoming more social in terms of their structure and what this might mean for leadership development. I believe the move to flatter, less hierarchical, more project based organisational structures, where individual contribution is sought out by project teams looking for relevant experience and expertise, and where the ability to collaborate at all levels is critical to success, is slowly gathering momentum. Some of our clients are thinking about moving ‘beyond the matrix’ and starting to de-layer and considering about how to incentivise matrix contribution. It’s an interesting approach and I wanted to share some of my thoughts and the implications for leaders that I considered in my response.

What do you see as the implications for leaders as your organisations become more social? Are they ready to succeed in this emerging world?
