The workplace on all levels is more complicated today, and the level of complexity is steadily increasing every year.
Consider: the global economy, increased competition, shortage of skilled labor, continual technological and organizational change, the weak economy, near-constant legislative changes, and workplace diversity - just to name a few.
Therefore, today, leaders must be contemporary leaders who know how to navigate and drive organizational change - and do it through building relationships.
Without a good balance between technical skills and people skills (balance of IQ and EQ) leaders will only achieve marginal success.
Let’s face it—technical skills only take a leader so far. And, today leaders must have a solid understanding of how to manage within the boundaries of the law to avoid creating a hostile work environment or inviting claims of harassment, discrimination, or retaliation.Learning Objectives
