Alex Benay “Everything’s Changed: Leadership In The Digital Age” | NSB Engage Virtual Webinar

How you manage your teams, organizations or projects has been fundamentally upended over the past decade.  Has your leadership style evolved?  The digital revolution has taken a mere decade to creep into every aspect of our lives, and things are now different, forever.  One cannot manage today like we managed in the past.  COVID-19 has only expedited and made these changes more acute.

Alex Benay will go over what has actually happened to the workplace during the digital economic transition of the past 5-10 years, and how it changes everything.  He will highlight what assumptions you are most likely guilty of as a leader, and what new leadership traits must emerge in order to compete and win in this new digital reality, leaving a top 10 traits of a digital leader for the audience to take home and action.  

Key highlights from this presentation include:

  • The power of radical transparency
  • Why delegation is dead
  • How a transformation mindset stalls progress
