Effective leadership is constantly evolving. To mitigate the impact of the Great Resignation, leaders need to self-reflect on their own style and determine what needs to change in real time. Employees are re-evaluating their options when it comes to deciding where to work, and for whom.
The enlightened leader is always seeking fresh ideas, new approaches, and divergent opinions. Your current and future workforce comprises free-thinkers, freelancers, and entrepreneurs who expect to be engaged in and contribute to your leadership conversations, so it is important to ensure that their intellect and ingenuity are genuinely appreciated and included when planning the future direction of your organization
