Successful leadership in today’s world of hybrid work requires a reset in how we manage and empower our teams. What we have lost to remote work – those watercooler moments – must be reinstated. Leaders should focus on facilitating social connections and creating a fertile breeding ground for innovation by establishing the structures for employees to network and collaborate across boundaries.
Businesses that lead their market sectors all have one thing in common: they all practice diversity. Diversity is not merely based on gender, but also personality and participation. A diverse workforce equals agility, productivity and innovation. Anna Budde discusses how you could practise diversity in all its forms and transform your organisation into a leading company that understands the human element in success.
