Companies have new demands caused by the speed that technology imposes and their managers have to be prepared for these transformations. Therefore, they must develop agile leadership and understand that areas such as human resources and logistics, for example, cannot do without technological knowledge.
Leading people promotes important changes for a company and for society. In the work environment, leadership is a necessary skill because it is the one that ensures the unity of teams, focused and motivated with a focus on the objectives set.
It takes persistence, commitment and discipline to become a leader. It is only through constancy and motivation to grow and overcome that leadership emerges.
Six out of ten selectors who command the hiring in the largest companies in the world consider that the degree of innovation and leadership of the candidates is very important. The conclusion is in a survey by United HR (Executive search and outplacement consultancy), carried out with 1000 executives – responsible for hiring leadership positions. When the survey questioned their opinion on this topic, 55% responded that the candidates’ degree of innovation and leadership is “low” and another 7% answered “very low”; 36% said “neither high nor low” and only 2% classified it as “high”.
Márcio Miranda, Latam CEO of United HR (coach consultancy for executives and outplacement), says that the leader is not expected to have technical knowledge, but rather that he knows how to recognize the solutions that will transform his business and that can make a critical analysis of it. You must be very close to the technologies to know what will bring more efficiency, speed and you no longer have the possibility to leave this matter to the IT professional.
