Its frequent use, however, screams loudly that we are witness to fundamental changes in our business models.
Those who have recognized the changes afoot and have chosen to talk about them do so with a less than hidden dis-ease about how to handle them ... and for good reason. The enormity and pace of change, challenge and risk are real. One of the questions being asked is: "What kind of person can best lead in this environment?"
The answer to that question is depends on what you want to accomplish. But one thing is clear: traditional roles and views of how things are, or could be, need to be revisited.
We are increasingly becoming more diverse nationally and internationally. Our future success will be more and more dependent on our abilities to work effectively within diverse, cross-cultural and cross-national systems with very different regulations, expectations and mores.
In their new book, Optimizing Talent: What Every Leader and Manager Needs to Know to Sustain the Ultimate Workforce, Linda Sharkey and Paul Eccher, both PhDs, have put together a Talent Optimization Framework(tm) that shows how a company can go about preparing itself and assessing/developing its leaders to lead them through current and future challenges.
The book talks about the need, the commitment needed to succeed, the talent optimization process itself and the results that can be expected.
It has ample examples of "how to do it" in the appendices and is full of common sense practical advice and wisdom.
