In today’s digital world, as technology evolves, so does business. Due to this, the challenges faced by top leaders in a company have also become dynamic. A good way to gauge the leadership challenges in the 21st century would be to conduct a survey amongst leaders from different countries.
The Center for Creative Leadership* did exactly this. They conducted a survey on 763 leaders from various countries such as India, China, United Kingdom, Egypt, Spain, Singapore, and United States. After diligently completing the survey, they identified the leadership challenges. Here is the essence of the survey.Team building: Most of the leaders find it difficult to steer their team in the direction of success.
Encouraging employees: Developing one’s subordinates to put in more effort and improve their skill set is a common challenge.Change Management: Leaders, today find it difficult to adapt to new changes and also motivate their employees to adapt to the same.
Internal politics: The leaders who were surveyed admitted that it was not easy to cope with internal politics and get the work done in most scenarios.
Job-satisfaction: In a tense environment, it is as task to inspire employees to work harder and also to ensure they are satisfied with the job at hand.
Managerial efficiency: As mentioned earlier, keeping up with the ever-evolving scenario can be difficult. Even leaders at top positions can fail to cope up with it. Updating skills in terms of time management, prioritization, and decision-making were the key areas that leaders found difficult to manage.
Leaders understand that there is a problem and realize that they need to fix it at the earliest in order to avoid a corporate catastrophe. There are many ways to do this:
1) Enroll for a leadership development program
2) Hire a mentor
For many companies, the former option is more feasible than the latter. Hence, in order to help leaders cope with the leadership challenges at the workplace and to help upcoming leaders who are new to the role, WeSchool Bangalore has launched the Leadership Development Program specially suited for corporate and business leaders. All the different problem-solving techniques, innovative thinking, leadership styles, skills and the qualities of a leader are mastered and developed in this course.

Most of the popular MNCs trust WeSchool for their corporate training in Bangalore and also encourage their employees to join the leadership development program in Bangalore.
