Proactive Leadership

From the new era’s challenges in corporate management …

To successfully lead an organization in the Knowledge Economy and Digital Age is increasingly challenging. The unpredictable, risky and complex Fourth Industrial Revolution has substantially impacted corporate structures in both breadth and depth. This reality compels today’s leaders to develop new competencies to foresee, lead and create strategic changes in management and leadership approach in their organizations. 

Whether an organization can become successful and sustain its success depends first on the “proactive leadership” of its top leader and leadership team. That explains why every leader is searching for the solutions to the two dilemmas: 

  • What is the right leadership spirit which I should have in this era? 
  • How to spread out that spirit in my entire organization? 

To answer these two crucial questions, we need to find out the solutions to the two chronic challenges of today’s leaders: (1) They have not fully been aware of and able to unleash their own leadership talents. (2) They tend to control their team members instead of empowering their employees to lead themselves and maximize their potential. 

The underlying cause of these two chronic leadership challenges is the leader’s unawareness of the Whole-Person Paradigm to unleash the internal strength of each individual in their organization, which will result in a highly effective team. Accordingly, the leader must see the organization as an “ecosystem” rather than “machine” and individuals as a whole person with “Body, Mind, Heart, Spirit” rather than “a tool”. 

Especially in the context of the Knowledge Economy and Digital Age, the greatest asset of a business is not technology or finance but the potential and strength of teams, the role of the leader thus becomes clearer and more important than ever! 

The leaders of the 4.0 Era need to redefine the concept of leadership, rethink the leadership spirit, and be well-equipped with new models, mindsets, skillsets and toolsets to pioneer in creating an organization with the capacity ready to win. 

… To the “proactive leadership” solution

In this new era and with the new “Whole-person Paradigm”, the world is shifting to a new management approach, namely “Management by Self-management”, “Management by Culture” or “Management without Control”. And this new management approach is the future of management and the key solution to the chronic challenges of today's leaders. 

Taking the new situation into account and deeply beware of the “management trend of the future”, FranklinCovey - the world's leading organization in helping its partners achieve greatness and results - has designed the special training program “PROACTIVE LEADERHIP”.
