Sharing a Resource: Korn Ferry

I read an interesting article earlier this morning in the Harvard Business Review.  It was entitled, “Self-Disrupt or Be Disrupted” by Korn Ferry, a global organizational consulting firm.  The gist of the article focused on how leaders in the future need to prepare today to address the competition and challenges they will face.  Or as Korn Ferry writes:

“Competitive advantage will come with leaders who can connect resources and people adeptly to build an innovation ecosystem.”  

They write that in order to do this, leaders and companies must start the process of disrupting leadership development now or find themselves behind the pack.  They briefly touch on 5 core qualities in this new leadership skillset.

Leaders need the ability to:

  1. Anticipate changes
  2. Drive themselves and the company to flex to answer the changes
  3. Accelerate toward the change vs waiting to see what everyone does
  4. Partner with those that are kindred spirits in the challenges of change
  5. Trust leaders and processes that will pave the path to sucess
