Growing Leaders who Thrive in the Digital Age

Organizations are being disrupted by digital business models. According to an MIT study, 70% of leaders lack the skills to transform their organization to be digitally enabled. This deficiency puts firms at a significant disadvantage. Digitally mature companies are estimated to be 26% more profitable than their industry competitors. Human Capital Growth has had the privilege of assessing leaders who are at the bleeding edge of digitization or have been champions of digital transformation. In this webinar, we look at the characteristics and the competencies required to lead in the digital age. We will address to what extent these capabilities are similar and different from those needed in the past. Participants will leave with a framework for conceptualizing leadership in the context of a digital business.
