LEADERSHIP – What successful leaders do to foster employee connection and spur innovation

today 2022.10.26.my_locationOnline



Leading in unprecedented times requires unprecedented leadership abilities and the past two years has certainly kept senior executives on their toes!

Leading a remote/hybrid team, managing crisis, delivering customer value during disruption, developing agile recognition and motivation strategies or crisis-proofing talent processes are just some of the challenges leaders have been facing. Consequently, leaders have had no choice but to quickly develop new skills to weather the storm.

Working remotely and even now, in the times of hybrid working, leaders need to consider the wellbeing of their people more than ever before. Leaders are required to rethink their approach about how to engage, connect and align their team with a particular focus on how to actually lead and foster innovation in this new era. The power has shifted to the people and the “old leadership tactics” of leading by fear in the hierarchy of power in a corporate environment simply don’t work anymore (and probably never really did!).

Consequently, as we emerge from the pandemic, to drive success and market share, leaders need to be at the top of their game by ensuring they are more purposeful, empathetic, calm, action-orientated and resilient than ever.

With many leaders still struggling to get back to ‘business as usual’ others are now thriving through fostering employee connection, spurring innovation and driving new growth opportunities through inspirational leadership.

But what does great leadership actually look like in 2022 and how will it develop going forward? How can leaders truly connect employees in the new world of work and how can they drive innovation even in a remote work setting? How can leaders use recognition effectively and how can they rethink their wellbeing initiatives in the face of increased anxieties?
