According to a new report from Horton International, the key leadership skills that will be crucial for a post-pandemic world will be agility, data-driven decision making, and perhaps most importantly, empathy. “Integrating these into your leadership role will be vital and will help get the most out of your team,” said the report.
COVID-19 has forced a need for quick thinking and on-the-fly adjustments. “Business models of the past have been flung out the window in favor of something much more malleable,” said the report. “Where before we ran our work lives by a rigid structure, now external forces must be considered more than ever. Unfortunately, this caused many businesses to quickly crumble under the weight of the pandemic.”
