  • Introduction

    Wherever your organization is on the spectrum of the digital transformation journey, the fundamentals of cognitive learning based operational leadership do not change, whether you apply Blake & Mouton's Leadership Grid Model or any other contemporary operational leadership model. However, leaders need to realign their Mindset as well as develop certain knowledge and skill-based competencies to navigate smoothly through the whole ecosystem of today's Digital Era. This will help in equipping them to effectively lead their teams and to make their organisations thrive in a digital world while effectively dealing with the volatility, uncertainty and the disruption-based change that is pervasive today and is here to stay.

    This one-day program focuses on creating awareness about the new ways of connecting, communicating and collaborating by understanding the associated elements of Leadership Behaviors in the digital world.

    In order to achieve the above learning agenda, the program uses a four-element based cognitive framework of DIGITAL ACUMEN, DIGITAL ADAPTABILITY, DIGITAL AGILITY and DIGITAL ANALYTICS, and through an approach of self-discovery, awareness is created for leaders to be more effective as what we call a Digital Era Leader.

    Participants will also develop an action oriented developmental plan based on the findings of their self-analysis and gap analysis around the above Leadership Competency based framework.
