The world has changed from one of relative stability, order, and predictability to one of radical change, increased complexity, ambiguity, and expanding seamlessness, and leaders must navigate this complex landscape. Because of the disruptive changes caused by technological advancements, which have resulted in a global downturn, a new approach to leadership development is required.

New ideas and concepts are constantly thrown at leaders. The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), Industry 4.0 and 5.0, working remotely and how to manage it, data as our most valuable asset, my business model being outdated, crowd-funding, sustainability, work becoming more meaningful and purposeful, and employee happiness are all buzzwords these days.

To that end, now more than ever, leaders must prioritise the adoption of tools and insights that will help them navigate the changing world of work. Fundamental shifts and efforts to improve skills for the future workplace must be accelerated to ensure the growth of an inclusive economy and build capabilities.
