The key to individual differentiation is personalized learning, resulting from self-development. The ingredients for this include agility, visibility, curiosity and innovation, self-leadership, being proactive and personal commitment to continuous learning.
The greatest challenge of today’s leaders is the need to better prepare, train and inspire themselves and their followers in successful self-directed learning programs to meet emerging challenges.
This personal development in terms of knowledge and skill acquisition to better empower and increase output should be encouraged, recognized and rewarded.
This is because today’s business environment is controlled by accelerated pace of change which controls products, customer-mix, market size, profitability, growth and return on investment.
The relevance of a leader in the modern world will be their point of difference from another in terms of deliverables.
