One of the profiles that is changing the most is the manager. So much so that only a third of these professionals have the skills and competencies needed to meet the challenges of the next decade. This is established by the Human Resources consultant, People Excellence. From this organization, they point out the fundamental pillars on which the management of the future will be supported:
New business and professional relationships require remote connections. Therefore, tomorrow's managers must be able to lead teams delocalized in the distance. Delegation, responsibility and commitment become the basis of management. All this implies the implementation of new tools and strategies that facilitate and promote the development of human teams. Mastering digital spaces and environments, as well as becoming aware of the multicultural elements of the organization, is a must in leadership.
Current and methodologies such as self-learning or collaborative learning have become possible thanks to new technologies. Access to information and knowledge must be immediate and encouraged by managers. Tomorrow's leaders must be able to meet the training needs of their employees and ensure opportunities for professional and personal growth. This will guarantee the loyalty and trust of the worker in the organization.
Over the next decade, managers must effectively manage the different generations that will form their organizations. The reality is that tomorrow's accountability positions will be occupied by today's millenials. This generation, hyperformed and native digital, is deeply influenced and driven by the philosophy and values of "worklife balance", with a particular vision of commitment, responsibility and professional success. Knowing how to find balance and harmony between the different generations, making the most of each one's talent, will be one of the great challenges of business management.
The traditional business culture historically imparted in senior management seminars, based on hierarchy and rank, replaced a new approach based on the influence of the leader and the orientation towards the joint strategy. The workplace of managers must pass from the office to any point in the organization to acquire a 360º vision and anticipate the response of the market.
