Changing leadership approaches to meet the demands of a fast-changing, unpredictable world is inevitable. Traditional ‘command-and-control’ styles are outdated, while more agile and collaborative processes are accepted today.

Sharing everyday human experiences, bringing down defensive walls, and showing you are a real person make you seem more approachable.

Furthermore, experts believe that how you handle failure speaks a lot about your leadership skills. Taking responsibility for any part you played in missing a goal and exploring what went wrong with your team demonstrates what great a leader you are.
