Never in the modern history has anyone witnessed or imagined people being locked inside their homes, curb travel, and maintain physical distance to safeguard the health of families and others around them. And never has anyone experienced this massive job insecurity that has been observed in the last 20 months as a consequence of Covid-19; nor the threat of economic distress loom so large.

In this unprecedented reality, things are steadily marching towards better and also witnessing the beginnings of a dramatic restructuring at the workplaces. Amidst this, it would not be wrong to say that the business world is rapidly changing with multiple forces reshaping how organizations function. Emerging technologies, evolving business needs, growing talent market and greater employee expectations are all a part of this list.

As new technologies continue to emerge and new talent brings new expectations and skills, the primary functioning of organizations is being upended. In order to take on these organizational assumptions, leaders are re-looking at technology not only as a way to replace human power but also as a way to allow the potential of leaders and individuals and ecosystems to positively impact society. Employees need to unlearn the mechanistic view of organizations that has dominated in the past and re-look at the future of organizations as something that is still robust yet organic and evolving. To enable a smooth facilitation of this, there are various domestic and international players in the market that are offering innovative leadership programs to not only benefit the individual employees but also the organizations at large.
