“Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.”Stephen R. Covey
As enterprises in Singapore evolve, many organisations are faced with a more complex and interconnected world. Because of social, economical, political and technological changes, Singapore enterprises including the Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) are realizing the need to develop their managers to lead a new generation of employees.
The command and control culture of the 20th century which many of the traditional SME owners and senior leaders in large organisations have employed may not be relevant. The 21st century leader need to deal with the complexity of today’s world. it requires leaders who can stimulate discussion, create innovative solutions, inspire a more diversified and dynamic workforce, manage conflicts and collaborate with all stakeholders. As a management consultant and professor aptly puts it:
“In our global highly complex world, the heroic leadership figure has increasingly become a relic.”Manfred Kets De Vries
Leaders in enterprises need to collaborate among themselves as well as with their team. They need to develop the necessary leadership soft skills to inspire their team to be more innovative, resourceful and accountable. The organization would also need to implement performance management systems to drive team performance.
