What's keeping 2023 CEOs awake at night?
I recently came across this very interesting Global Leadership Forecast 2023 from DDI | Development Dimensions International on what keeps CEOs up at night (here)... and it is all about Talent!
#𝟭 𝗮𝘁𝘁𝗿𝗮𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗿𝗲𝘁𝗮𝗶𝗻𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘁𝗼𝗽 𝗧𝗮𝗹𝗲𝗻𝘁🌟
#𝟮 𝗱𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗹𝗼𝗽𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗻𝗲𝘅𝘁 𝗴𝗲𝗻𝗲𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗼𝗳 𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗲𝗿𝘀⏭️
#𝟯 𝗺𝗮𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗮𝗶𝗻𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮𝗻 𝗲𝗻𝗴𝗮𝗴𝗲𝗱 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗸𝘀𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗰𝗲🙋
Then come topics around economic, innovation and product challenges.
Talent challenges are critical, in a professional environment that we already know being complex, constantly changing, where skilled leaders and experts can easily find another job. A professional environment also where younger generations' expectations revolve around flexibility, holistic development and diverse experiences.
𝗧𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝘄𝗵𝘆 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗶𝘀 𝘀𝗼 𝗶𝗺𝗽𝗼𝗿𝘁𝗮𝗻𝘁 𝘁𝗼:
- Advocate for the right culture ... and walk the talk at all levels of the organization!
- Seriously develop your leaders and individual contributors on soft skills (from collaboration, deep listening to problem solving and effective communication... to name a few).
- Incorporate regular feedback to constantly look for ways to improve and adapt (and not only look for people who will tell you that you do great!).
Showing you care and your organization cares, for real, not only gives you a real competitive advantage, but makes working with you an experience your teams will want to prolong, while being encouraged to give their best.
Something that should help leaders and CEOs have a better sleep :) 🌃
