The Center for Creative Leadership recently completed a large survey to assess the leadership competencies need for success, both now and in the future.
One of the skills that I highly regard is resourcefulness, the ability to deal skillfully and promptly with unexpected challenges, etc. Interestingly, resourcefulness was the only skill that is in the Top 10 of existing skills. All of the others that are needed for success in the future are NOT skills that leaders have mastered.
This leads to a pretty big Leadership Gap, according to this survey. It might be a good time to take a personal inventory of your leadership skills and make sure you’re doing everything you can to develop the skills that will be needed.
