7 Summary

This week, you have learned that the future of leadership involves significant change. This is inevitable, given our increasingly collaborative global focus, the technological disruptions on the horizon and changing generational attitudes. You have also seen that leaders are capable of rising to the challenge, and that many researchers and experts are already investigating and discussing what will happen next.

You should now feel that you can:

  • describe how global change might impact on leadership styles of the future
  • describe newly defined leadership styles
  • identify sources of information to keep you up to date with future leadership trends.

In your final week, you’ll be able to reflect on your own leadership experience and start to identify areas for development.
