LEADING THE YOUNG - New leadership paradigm for the "industrialization hangover".
The world of work is changing. The creative class is increasingly important for the success of organizations as more and more work is being done with innovative brain power in the industrialized countries. The young generations and digital natives have changing expectations for organizations, and they expect individual leadership in exchange for their commitment. Increasingly the young professionals opt to work outside big organizations and become self-employed or join small start-ups.
The leadership models of the industrial era are becoming obsolete in this "industrialization hangover" and a new paradigm of leadership is emerging. The models previously employed in the arts sector have a lot to contribute in this change. The ways to balance freedom and control, letting visions emerge rather than dictate them, and "leading without leading" in order to fully engage employees are the way forward. This presentation explores these dopics and proposes a new way of leading the creative class and the innovative young generations.
