We are in the 21st Century – The Digital Age. We know that by 2025 Millennials and GenZers will be 75% of the global workforce. However, many organizations are still operating using a 20th Century Industrial age leadership. Hierarchy, power, control, and fear are out of step with the complexities of our times and the workforce is demanding something different. To move into the 21st century, we need to transform the way we lead and manage our organizations. We need a personal connection. We need to be empathetic. When we can understand the circumstances our team is facing, we become more trustworthy and credible. Dr. Edward Marshall suggests this leads to success in the workplace. He is the author of Leadership’s 4th Evolution: Collaboration for the 21st Century. Kevin and Dr. Marshall discuss this 4th evolution of leadership—Collaboration—for the 21st Century leadership—based on trust, ownership, and psychological safety to motivate the workforce. As the world continues to shift, leaders will need to reshape their workplace and redefine their business model. They need to engage their workforce to take a seat at the table and make contributions.
