We need leadership that understands the importance of the pedagogical journey you have to do to lead a person from today to tomorrow. So, even if it’s a technical revolution, if you want to be great at digitalization, you need to be good at transformation and in return leadership 🤩
We are misled in today’s digitalization to focus on the technology instead of the value it brings, focus on the processes instead of the people, and we all often miss out on how it actually affects people in everyday life. We focus on the things, and not the people. That is why so many organizations fail at digitalization and what we established in our last blog and vlog, that leadership is a key ingredient in succeeding with digitalization.
We all need to be leaders to make this huge change happen, and that’s when we come to the next hurdle. Educating a few in a classical hierachal setup is only expanding the gap in the society and in the organization. And we do this mistake all the time. We want a self-governed and self-motivated people, but only educate a few, usually managers. Instead of realising that we need to educate everyone.
You need to train everyone to be a leader to succeed as an organization today.
We do the same thing in sales and selling. We want a “selling organization”, yet only educate the people already working in sales even more in sales – instead of training everyone.
You need to train everyone to be a leader to succeed as an organization today. Independent if it’s about digitalization, leadership or creating a great place to work at.
If you want fundamental change, you need to stop the classical ways of training your organization by only educating a few.
Leadership is no longer an ability that will be important for the members of the hierarchy, but something that is equally important for everyone.
So it’s time to step up. If you want fundamental change, you need to stop the classical ways of training your organization by only educating a few.
What do you think about this? What do you believe is the secret ingredient in digitalization? How can we change the classical way of training an organization?
