Leadership: An Evolving Definition

Posted: 05.31.13 | Category: TCG Solutions

At TCG Talent Solutions, we know the importance of leadership. We also know that leadership practices and roles must change with the ever-evolving times. This means taking a step back to see how the workplace has changed and reevaluating how this affects leadership roles. In an interesting article, Forbes sheds light on three new leadership “rules.”

“Understand and master the borderless future world of work.”
It is important to change with technology. Embrace new technology and social media in order to better the relationship between your organization and its stakeholders.

“Talent is priceless.”
Like we discussed in previous postings, don’t “cage” innovation (link to earlier post: Is Your Organization Suffering from Leadership Dysfunction?). It is increasingly important to embrace creative talent and job flexibility. Otherwise, you will lose talented employees to competitors.

“Embrace emerging markets.”
The article tells us that it’s important to keep an open mind and relationship with other world markets like India, China and Brazil. Understand the economies and engage them.

What different leadership skills do young leaders bring to the table?

Posted: 09.14.12 | Category: TCG Solutions

In today’s workplace CEOs and managerial ranks are being filled with younger leaders.  This trend is progressing and it begs the question, “”what different leadership skills do young leaders bring to the table and how might current leadership best develop their skills?””  According to an article from Chief Learning Officer, “”Younger leaders seem more able to switch gears and let go of old routines or good ideas that didn’t work out.  Teaching these leadership traits burdens the chief learning officer (CLO) with the responsibility of understanding what kinds of learning programs will best align with the demands of a younger workforce.  Heavy doses of experiential learning are best for younger leaders – not classroom instruction”” according to David DeLong, author of The Executive Guide to High-Impact Talent Management:  Powerful Tools for Leveraging a Changing Workforce.””   Read more of this article at:

This article communicates that young people don’t benefit from being lectured.  Young leaders need a strong framework for development.  They succeed by learning from new experiences and being engaged in real-time critical thinking activities.  Young leaders are likely to embrace an environment that intertwines social learning and the use of technology.

TCG eLearning is an interactive and engaging learning program that recognizes everyone has a different learning style.  We recognize this difference by offering over 130 courses in a variety of media, including audio, interactive and video.  Don’t burden yourself with the responsibility of discovering what kinds of learning programs are the best fit for your leadership and management training!  Sign up for a free TCG CHEX eLearning demo and/or Contact us to learn how TCG CHEX eLearning can meet your needs!  Contact us here.
