A Guide To Problems and Skills in Leadership At Any Age



Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other - John F. Kennedy.

A great leader, whether born or made is one who inspre the team to achieve a common goal.


The need for ongoing learning and development is greater at any previous point in history. In fact, 38% of CEOs believe a shortage of key skills is the top people-related threat to growth, according to a study conducted by PwC. With this in mind, it’s no surprise that building a culture of continuous learning is currently a priority for Learning and Development (L&D) leaders.


We are all a work in progress. With the rapidly changing world, we have to be future-ready (relevant, efficient, adaptable, agile, forward-looking, talent- focused and client-centric). Transformation requires continuous learning and customized co-created interventions to keep leaders abreast of the happenings in their chosen fields. There is no other way to address the problems we face in this VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous) world... You can find more details on our website on this topic.


In our journey of exploring how we can help more leaders and organizations to stay relevant and lead effectively in the next normal. We have organized several interventions from research/conversations, masterclasses, masterminds, summit, gamification/simulations and live interviews. All these with the hope to inspire while reminding leaders what are the common problems, important leadership capabilities/skills and some suggestions to address the current challenges leaders do face in ever-challenging times.


In our introduction we highlighted the following common issues leaders are facing:

  • Don’t know how to stay relevant and adapt to the next normal?

  • Do you find it stressful to lead and ensure performance of a remote team?

  • Afraid that you can't keep your team and business?


Here are some of the answers we got from the leaders we interviewed in terms of the top problems:

  1. Lack of Leadership Skills

  2. Sustaining Business Growth

  3. Staying Relevant
