Leadership in the workplace has undergone significant change in the last few decades. Not that long ago, autocratic leadership was the norm in businesses around the world. Senior managers made important decisions without the input of employees.
As global business continues to be shaped by technical and commercial innovation, employers rely on their employees to be engaged and creative while they work. Building a strong organisational culture has been key to this. Leadership has become more people oriented and collaborative. Employers realise that employee experience is critical to happiness at work which in turn leads to improved engagement and lower turnover.
We have already looked at how to be a better leader at work from an expat perspective, but today’s question is how do we encourage others by fostering leadership in the international workplace?. Modern leadership is about empowering others to be the best versions of themselves while they work. Your businesses diversity and inclusion practices are going to play a role in this but so does your leadership style.
