Fit For the Future
Leaders need followers, and followers are crying out for strong leaders. But the best people only follow you if you can give them work with meaning, energy, and purpose. And you can only do that if you yourself have meaning, energy, and purpose - in other words, you bring passion to your work. Leadership expert Charles Kovess explains what this means - not just in high-level language, but with practical, easy-to-implement ideas.
Find Clarity In Uncertainty
In uncertainty and chaos, your people feel unsettled and insecure. You can’t promise them certainty and safety – nobody can – but you can give them greater clarity.In this episode of the Fit For The Future podcast, we explore the three essential parts of creating clarity:Reality (What is): The world has changed, and the first step is to accept that new reality so you can understand how it operates now (and will operate in the future).Possibility (What could be):The people who thrive in change are the possibility thinkers, who look at the big picture and see opportunities created by the change.Priority (What matters):It’s impossible to do everything that’s possible, so become clear about which things to focus on and which you can safely ignore or defer.
Reimagining the Workplace
A year after the mad scramble to get office workers working from home, organisations are grappling with the challenge of understanding the workplace of the future. As restrictions ease and offices become safer workplaces again, there's a strong push by employers to get people back into the office as soon as possible. But it would be a pity if we missed the opportunity to reimagine the future of work and the workplace of the future.https://gihanperera.com
Let's Get Digital!
According to KPMG, digital transformation is the biggest challenge facing leaders in Australia. The pandemic didn't change that - if anything, it accelerated digital transformation by 5-6 years.And yet, McKinsey says 70% of digital transformation efforts fail. Why? Because too many leaders and teams get it wrong. Don’t be digital just for digital’s sake. Do it to better serve your customers, employees, suppliers, investors, and other stakeholders.https://gihanperera.com
