The twilight of the leaders

What role will organizational leaders play in the future? They won’t go away, but some believe the charismatic-type company executive will see his role diminish as power, authority, and responsibility gets distributed among largely self-governing groups. Consequently, leaders will have to learn to live without some of the privileges to which they have grown accustomed.

They teach us that a significant role in the transformation of an organization is played by clearly defined business goals, the relationship of a leader with people and well-chosen communication tools. And although I subscribe to this approach, I personally emphasize something else - individual experiences.

Blockchain has earned admiration. Now is the time for trust

Blockchain has captured the attention of the financial sector because it handles high-volume transactions wonderfully. It is ideal in situations where settlements need to be instant and systems exceptionally efficient, and it has been proposed as a way to secure states against cyberattacks. In sum, blockchain is considered one of the most innovative and potentially useful technologies around.

Transformational leadership: Bringing order to chaos

The men and women leading the change need to be brave, aware of market trends and able to select the right people to help them. Even in an age of hyper-specialization, the leader’s versatility is the ultimate key to success.

Consequently, leaders will have to learn to live without some of the privileges to which they have grown accustomed.

Over the past few decades, the group has become the corporate model for accomplishing work, but the perception of leadership has not changed much; they have been (and are still) seen as powerful individuals who form and direct those groups. Even as late as the

The power of collective leadership

New leadership paradigm should be conceived as a continuous and collective process taking place within a network of employees and managers.
