Identifying and developing leadership that is aligned for challenges of the digital era is critical for most organizations today. With continuous change in the profile and priorities of the human capital over the years, the nature and style of leadership has no option but to adapt to ensure there is equal focus on revenue as well as employee satisfaction. The intense open market competition and technological revolutions, apart from putting a tremendous work pressure on the leaders and managers, has also created a requirement of conceptualizing and designing a new set of modern practices in practically every aspect of work place. In today’s context of people’s demographics, automated processes, a connected world and changed aspirations, the previous management literature, practices, tools and techniques need a complete revamp. There is a clear felt need of redefining the concept, and its practice to deal with the new set of challenges due to digitization and massive disruption arising out of it.
This course from IIM Lucknow is conceptualized to address this critical need of leaders and managers who are ready to take on the challenge of not only to make the organizations survive but to make it grow manifold. This course will offer insights into theories and application of leadership with an emphasis on learning knowledge, skills and values. The course intends to be participative with a lot of reflections/assessments into one’s own style of leadership. Thus, providing opportunities to identify specific areas of improvement.
