 "If you want your leaders to be awesome, be awesome yourself!" - Marshall Goldsmith

The Global Leader of TODAY: New Competencies for A New Era

In 2009, Marshall Goldsmith conducted groundbreaking research. Instead of surveying the current leaders about the future, he went straight to the emerging leaders and rising stars in leadership. What he discovered was quite surprising. While the essential qualities like vision, integrity, and results still matter for leaders, 5 unexpecting key factors emerged: 

1. Thinking Globally

Even when operating in a local or regional environment, global issues can impact your people and your bottom line. Leaders today must adapt to an increasingly competitive landscape with diverse stakeholders worldwide. 

Great leaders master the economic, legal, and political aspects of operating in a global environment.

2. Appreciating Cultural Diversity

Today’s workforce is more diverse (and sensitive) than ever before. Actions that motivate in one culture might offend in another, and cultural acceptance is critical for advancement and retention. 

Great Leaders openly embrace cultural differences and are students of human behavior to fill cultural gaps.


3. Demonstrating Technological Savvy

Technology is a critical component of every business. It impacts process, dollars and people. A leader without tech understanding will miss opportunities, frustrate their team and create unnecessary complexity. 

Great Leaders aren’t necessarily tech experts, but they are tech savvy so they can build tech-savvy teams, manage resources, and inspire others to incorporate technology for company benefit.

4. Building alliances and partnerships

Business today is a team sport. Not just internally but externally as well. To be successful, companies need strategic alliances to compensate for weaknesses and leverage. Alliances with various stakeholders, including customers, suppliers, and even competitors are required to achieve exponential growth. 

Great leaders master the skill of negotiating complex partnerships and managing alliance networks.

5. Sharing Leadership

 In a changing world where leading within a flexible network may outweigh leading from a traditional hierarchy, sharing leadership isn't just an option, it's essential. Telling people what to do and how to do it is often cumbersome and ineffective. 

Great leaders must ask, listen, and learn, especially when working with knowledge workers who often possess expertise beyond their managers.

All of these 5 key factors point to one thing – leaders of today must lead an ever-evolving life, in congruence with our ever-changing world.

Fast forward 14 years to 2023, and here we are in that future. These 5 key factors continue to differentiate a merely adequate leader from an exceptional leader, who can mobilize their teams and effectively navigate the growing complexity and pressures of dynamic market environments.

Moving forward, one needs to evaluate:

Are the current and emerging leaders in your company ready and capable of navigating this new world? 
Do they have the competencies that are required today to lead us into a new era of work and growth?
Are people in your organization growing? 

If you are hedging on “No” to these questions. And are ready to grow yourself and others within your organization, sign up for this upcoming Master Business Course with Marshall. 

Each week, you will unlock a new level of leadership greatness, learn to master the art of leadership in a dynamic world, become the leader of leaders, and help your team rise to the challenge. 

Marshall believes leadership should be fun, not boring. 

Anyone at any level could do it. Yes, anyone at any age, from children to grandparents, as long as they have a willingness to be coached. 

Don’t believe us?

Here’s Grandpa Marshall and his grandchildren practicing FeedForward and having a blast!

Sin título (500 × 500 px)-8

This course is highly recommended for all team leaders, especially those on the executive team and emerging leaders. It is also beneficial for hiring managers, aspiring leaders, and young talents.

This is a highly interactive course. It touches upon many aspects of interpersonal behaviors. We recommend taking this course with a peer or with a team. This collaborative approach enhances your learning through peer-reflection and direct feedback from trusted team members who are growing alongside you.

For the company, this fosters a more collaborative and cohesive team environment, reducing interpersonal dramas while scaling.

For the executive team, this hits on the #1 thing on the Scaling Up Checklist “The Executive Team is healthy and aligned as they understand each other’s differences, priorities, and styles.”

You will also be supported by a cohort of like-minded leaders within the Growth Institute community. 

Who Is This Course NOT For?

Sin título (500 × 500 px)-10

The ones who aren’t interested in changing. This successful adult’s behavior is working fine for them. They have absolutely no interest in changing and don’t perceive a problem. If they don’t care to grow and change their interpersonal behavior, taking this course will be a waste of everyone’s time.

Sin título (500 × 500 px)-10

The ones who are pursuing the wrong strategy for the organization. 

If this person is already going in the wrong direction, all this course will do is help them get there faster, derailing the organization sooner.

Sin título (500 × 500 px)-10

The ones who are in the wrong job. Sometimes, people believe their skills are being misused or underused. For these people, simply ask "If we closed the company today, would you feel relieved, surprised, or sad?" If they say "relieved," it's a sign this course will not work for them. We can't change the behavior of unhappy people so they become happy. We can only help them fix behavior that makes people around them unhappy.

Sin título (500 × 500 px)-10

The ones who think everyone else is the problem. A long time ago, Marshall received a call from an executive, who after a few high-profile employee departures, was concerned about employee morale. After gathering and reporting the feedback from key employees to the client, Marshall was surprised to realize that the executive hadn't called Marshall to help him change; he wanted Marshall to fix his employees.

Sin título (500 × 500 px)-10

This course will not work for those executives who want to change others without improving themselves. As Marshall wisely put it: “It's hard to help people who don't think they have a problem. It's impossible to fix people who think someone else is the problem.”
