Leadership effectiveness is based on the breadth of expertise and depth of impact.

The substances of leadership are all about vision, change, influence, fairness, and progression. Leadership is a continuous journey of professional development, it develops daily, not in a day. In fact, the most critical and yet overlooked foundation to being a real leader is in choosing a destination that creates a better world!

Inclusiveness: Digital workforce today is multigenerational, multicultural, and multi-devicing. Inclusiveness nowadays is an essential policy for any global organization, which enhances the team with various and different aspects and traits. Hyper-diversity should refer to the cognitive difference, culture intelligence, talent versatility. Innovation is the differentiated business competency organizations intend to develop. In such a global climate, those businesses that are unwilling to genuinely embrace diversity, are unable to know how to tap their diverse resources, spur creativity and drive transformative changes.

Leaders should always look for the capabilities and skills that they don't have so that they can build a high-competitive team and complement each other’s capabilities and personalities. In fact, diversity and inclusion are strongly supported by management teams, all levels in the organization can reap the benefits of personal and professional growth, collective creativity and complementary skill sets. Inclusive leaders orient people and making them aware of the diversity in the organization, help them understand the value of harnessing the differences, and then giving them the tools and experience of how to effectively communicate for building trust, provide richness in ideas, opinions, , activities, etc, for building a high-innovative and high-performance workforce.

Interdisciplinary leadership
: The geographical, functional, organizational, and industrial borders are blurred, the maturity of digital leadership depends on a number of factors such as the purpose to lead, vision to inspire, multidimensional intelligence, and interdisciplinary knowledge and experience, etc. The rapid change, abundant knowledge, and diversified global society requires more advanced mindsets and paradigms such as accepting that leadership influence is attainable, but control is not. Interdisciplinary leaders have a unique insight to bridge the multitude of gaps and demonstrate the ability to learn and lead innovatively by inspiring team members to create a portfolio of new ideas, concepts, and scenarios, and coaching team members on innovation management practices to achieve innovation success.

In reality, people create conflicts between different groups that have their own senses of belief, reality, strength and weakness, disagreements and antagonisms arise between those groups. Often it may cause individuals or the group of people to rationalize their own sense of reality by disempowering or ignoring others’ viewpoints. It requires interdisciplinary leaders to break down conventional thinking boxes, bridge a variety of differences, update old rules, clarify communication by paying attention to context, context, and style, harmonize professional relationships, enhance trust and collaboration. Great leaders have an open mind, know how to share their vision and carry themselves in most contexts, present transdisciplinary knowledge and cross-functional experiences to connect unconventional dots, show flexibility, develop world-class insight and foresight and build global cognizance.

Interface leadership:
As both the natural world and human world are so dynamic with balance of energy, running an advanced organization or society is to enhance balance cycle and growth cycle with continuum. The growth of information is exponential and the speed of change is accelerated. In reality though, much of the prevailing conceptual content in our cognitive interpretive interface is received from previous generations or eras when the integration of our experiences is not adequately advanced and the world is not so hyper-connected and interdependent. Thus, interfacing leadership is in a strong demand as a balancing force of scientific & artistic, strategic and tactical; local and global, standardizing & personalizing views, knowledges, and disciplines to facilitate peer to peer communication and open dialogues, lead transformative changes, and orchestrate digital paradigm shifts.

Leadership is philosophy and a set of practices. Global interface leadership have sensitivity to emergent trends and risks; unify differences, gain an in-depth understanding of the values of the audience, abstract various perspectives into world class insight based on an updated global perception, develop vision, empathy, cohesion, and strategic alliance across boundaries to address rising complexity and cross-boundary interdependencies, encourage diversity, enhance coordination across business entities and borders , cultivate the next gen of leaders and professionals with open-mindedness, learning agility and professional competency. 

Leadership is about setting directions, mentoring, harmonizing, making positive influences and inspiring progression. Leadership effectiveness is based on the breadth of expertise and depth of impact. It’s a psychological phenomenon and interdisciplinary practice. It needs to integrate lots of great ingredients, with a “big picture” in mind for harnessing collaboration and enhancing unification.
