Session: Change Management - Decoding leadership skills & styles for driving digital transformation
In the rapidly changing world, organizations need to do things differently to be successful. As per my work experience, organizations are often hooked up in hiring change leaders instead of building middle managers as influential leaders. To be an effective leader, the individual must have many strengths such as communication skills, motivation, etc.
A leader should have more qualities such as social skills, team player, coach, etc. To influence own people & follow him, be good a team player, and guide in achieving goals that tie to change management strategy.
From my experience, I have seen that an effective change leader will be a person who does a lot of self-reflection, which will help improve their efficiency & overall team effectiveness. A leader can only achieve what he wants from his team. Here I will share my learning and experience within our space to build these skills & style within middle manager inclusive women to be part of digital transformation journey. Theses skills & style are not only in align with management but also embracing technology upskilling .
