After reaching the very top of one’s profession, it is a common human trait to lose all humility or even display unethical behaviour. However, on closer scrutiny it appears that many remain rooted and these are the kind of leaders, professionals prefer to have besides them. Some leadership lessons have been compiled together, starting with humility being preferred over charisma. One needs to remain steady and dependable. Modesty remains the best policy even today. While deep business analysis is a forte to be mastered, it has to be backed up by supporting action and not merely talk. One needs to remain vigilant about the aspects mentioned. This is because the vulnerability towards weaknesses gets stronger over time.

In the digital age, a leader can only survive and thrive further if he/she is a willing learner. This is due to the constant changes induced by technology, which means that all leaders these days must work with an agile approach. Leaders willing to transform do not ask where to learn from, but instead the topics where they are lacking so need to brush up. Agile learners tend to make more informed decisions take calculated risks and set challenging goals for themselves as well as their team. This learning can take place with three approaches. To start with looking back is about conducting thorough business analysis on what went write and what didn’t to not repeat those mistakes in the future. Looking around is the process of observing how others work, to glean useful business insights from them. And looking ahead is all about forming the right corporate strategy to take on the future.

Whether one is looking to enhance one’s own employability or looking at recruitment for the company itself, there is no denying that the future of work involves a hybrid of the human and technology. For humans to thus remain effective and innovative in this present digital age, leaders are needed who have a human approach and understand the bigger picture of the corporate strategy. This will enable people to easily adapt to newer roles curated. Sometimes leaders also need to take a hands-off approach because innovation is best crafted in a collaborative atmosphere sans the boss. Such a person is gifted at coaching or at least facilitates management training sessions for employees to learn at work and reskill. An entrepreneur who is a role model must drive in deep values among the employees through sheer conviction of work. That person needs to show ample amounts of empathy, emotional integrity, creative energy and fearless purposefulness. There are seven leadership roles which are self-explanatory by name. These roles are of the Explorer, Inquirer, Pioneer, Cultivator, Convincer, Co-creator and Connector.

There exist a whole range of advice on leadership. One of those gaining traction these days is the belief that good leaders start off as good followers themselves. This is because the leaders are only as effective as how well they can engage their followers. An experiment was conducted on a group of elite Royal Marines. It emerged that those who considered themselves as natural leaders ended up the exercise not managing to exert their authority in comparison to those who didn’t rate their own leadership capabilities. The latter group was seen as “working for us” and not “working for them”. Thus, management training programmes aimed at creating leaders at the micro-level need to consider the fact that distancing oneself from a group does not elevate their levels, but merely accentuates a diffidence.
