We are entering a new age of empowerment. Leadership at all levels can become the reality many have been striving for. We must unleash the inner CEO within our people and create the conditions where everyone has the opportunity to contribute beyond their job role, more strategically across the broader organisation.
In his groundbreaking book and associated learning solutions, author and business transformation expert Jeremy Blain sets out exactly how to achieve this reality.
Unleashing leadership at all levels and creating in-role CEOs drives a more collective and collaborative approach to organisational growth, while releasing executive leaders, non-executive directors and boards to focus on navigating an increasingly uncertain future.
The Inner CEO: Unleashing leaders at all levels will arm executive leaders with the steps to make this a reality in their organisation, as well as supporting individuals who are ready to step up as unleashed in-role CEOs.
The rise of the independent workforce, being most recently fuelled by a mass Gen X influx, is the human capital trend for the 2020s as digital nomads and other contingent workers become a more formalised part of the workforce.
Corporate enterprise needs to mobilise and define new rules of the road for human capital management. We call it ‘GigHR©’.
GigHR© is the continuous adaptation, leveraging, and application of Organisational Development and HR management practices to an increasingly diverse and blended workforce, to achieve optimum results for organisations and their stakeholders (Haynes and Blain, 2020)
A Step-by-Step Model
The Digital Leadership Playbook is designed for you to understand how to successfully digitally transform your organization and to guide your organization through the transformation by answering pivotal questions and adopting the Ticking Clock© model.
The Playbook discusses:
1. Strategic Positioning
One of the first challenges is to recognize the role digital plays in the organization’s strategy. It is not about creating a digital strategy but having a strategy to compete in a digital world. This Playbook addresses your strategic positioning around Future Thinking, Centricity and being Future Ready.
2. Operational Transformation
Leaders now recognize that digital transformation is about the whole business transformation. It is not only about automating backend processes or creating new apps. This includes customer centricity, empowering employees, culture shift, and building core technology platform.
