Human-Centered Leadership and its Impact on the Future of Leadership
Human-centered leadership has transformed the face of leadership in the ongoing global health crisis.
Most leading organisations across industries have embraced agility and empathy in leveraging employee empowerment, innovation, and cross-functional ways of working.
Conversely, this is a new world for many traditional managers as they are used to managing stable environments wherein the outcome can be easily predicted and controlled.
You cannot control a BANI environment, but as an organisation, you can prepare to respond fast, seamlessly, and adapt to the changes as they come. Here is where human-centered leadership comes in.
Human-centered leadership is a form of leadership that puts employees first and foremost when setting organisational strategic objectives and in decision-making. It seeks to ensure that people understand the vision and purpose of the organisation and how they can contribute to the shared vision and business objectives.
Although many companies have robust strategic visions, development programs, and processes, developing a solid people-centric leadership culture eludes many.
Developing the right leadership ethos that puts people at the heart of strategy while reflecting the company values and vision takes time, and is central to the future of leadership.
Why You Should Embrace Change
I have been quiet on my social media platforms for a while now, stuck in a bubble, fighting change instead of embracing it.
Since I always want to walk my talk, I unplugged because while in the bubble, I didn’t feel as if I was able to.
How My Diversity Made Me A Better Leader
As a woman, I am aware of the times my voice has been diminished because of my gender. I am aware of the times I have had to fight to be heard because I am a woman in leadership, and I am aware of the times my voice has not mattered because I am Black.
Yet I understand that we all have advantages, and disadvantages because of some aspect of our identities. My stories of pain do not preclude me from having privilege. My diversity has also brought me advantages along the way.
Over the years, I have come to understand that diversity cannot be defined by endless slides of multicultural hands in the air holding a globe or by people who look and talk differently.

Avoid These Mistakes and Keep Your Teams Inspired
As a leader, whether you are running your own business or holding a leadership position in an organisation, your employees are your most important asset and biggest resource.
Without them, the business cannot function and your vision and mission will remain a marketing promise. It is essential that they feel encouraged and inspired on a daily basis so that they can focus on your business.
