THE 4 TYPES OF LEADER WHO WILL THRIVE IN THE FOURTH INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION
The skills challenge has become clearer. The breadth of the skills gap is more evident to leaders, as is a sobering awareness that current education systems will be inadequate to meet the challenge. Nearly twice as many leaders said their organizations will strive to train existing employees rather than look to hire new ones. But research from Deloitte’s annual Millennial Survey suggests that leaders and young employees differ on which skills are most needed and who is responsible for developing them.
With those findings as context, we found some leaders are making better progress than others in dealing with challenges within the areas of society, strategy, technology, and talent. We grouped the leaders who seem to be getting it right into four personas:
- Social Supers.
- Data-Driven Decisives.
- Disruption Drivers.
- Talent Champions.
