Congratulations! We’ve made it more than halfway through 2019. It’s a great time to reflect on the first 7 months of the year, as you start your push for the finish line. I remember an online article that I ran across on Inc.com at the end of 2018 that outlined 5 leadership trends to which executives will be paying attention in 2019. The article was very short and to the point (much appreciated), but discusses these very important themes:
- Learn to lead several generations.
- Welcome female leadership.
- Time to pick up the pace.
- Emphasize accountability.
- Embrace continuing education.
While all 5 trends offer great insight and perspective, the first Learn to lead several generations resonates with me, because this will always be a moving target. More so, the leadership principals necessary to lead a workforce combination of generation types (Baby Boomers, Gen X, Y, Z, Millennials, and whatever comes next) will always be a moving target.
How many of these have you already spent energy and focus in 2019?
What is your plan to increase your attention to these throughout the rest of the year?
