What essential leadership traits are needed post-pandemic? Time:2021/06/15 00:00:00 Hit:56


Through in depth-research, Harvard Business Review has identified the skills leaders need to succeed in an increasingly complex world.

The research, conducted on more than a dozen companies that have positioned themselves for success after COVID-19, found leaders at these companies were proficient across a broad set of characteristics instead of relying solely on their areas of strength. For example, they learned how to work effectively across cultures and different ways of thinking and built collaborative teams.

Following are the characteristics leaders need to thrive in a post-pandemic world.

1.The strategic executor: These leaders can step back from the daily routine to see where the world is headed; translate strategy into specific steps; and see execution through to the end. They can make rapid operational decisions that help deliver a path to the future.
2.The humble hero: Leaders should be willing to make bold moves while being great listeners and champions of inclusivity. Great listeners understand new technologies and new ways of doing things. They also have the humility to know what they do not know.
3.The tech-savvy humanist: With technology being essential for companies, these leaders know what technology can do for their business while acknowledging it can take time for employees to learn it and embrace it.
4.The innovator: These leaders preserve the mission and purpose of their companies while pushing innovation consistent with the company’s purpose. They have the courage to fail and allow others to fail, as well.
5.The high integrity politician: These leaders know the ability to form partnerships through compromise is essential, but it must be done from a foundation of trust and integrity. They make deliberate choices and follow through with their actions and words.
6.The global minded localist: These leaders think and engage globally, with a deep awareness of the preferences of individuals and communities. They have a new way of thinking about work and engage with people from throughout the world.
