Using leadership to accelerate growth

The last article was about the power of trust. Today, we will focus on leadership.
The world of work is changing fast. For your company to be successful, it is crucial that leadership changes too.
Dr. Heike Bruch is professor of Leadership and director of the Institute for Leadership and Personnel Management at the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland. She spoke recently at our Business Transformation Summit about how traditional management styles are no longer fit for purpose.
When the hierarchical system of management is applied, she argues, you risk destroying passion and enthusiasm within your business. Instead, managers should work more creatively, mixing goal-oriented management with a quest for inspiration.
According to Dr. Bruch, there are three essential considerations for modern leadership:
- How do they consume energy?
- What style of leadership do they have?
- How do they steer teamwork?
With the right elements in place, your business has a good chance of sustainable growth.
