 Insightful leaders can bring their learning, best practices and working knowledge of past transformations into newer initiatives to lead changes and advance human society.

Contemporary organizations and societies have their own sophistication with silo functions, the sea of information, and the pool of talent. 

Are we reaching the inflection point at which people are able to work collaboratively to create the new chapter of the economy; taking an evolutionary path of pursuing the next level of societal maturity and collective human progress via empowerment, digitalization and personalization?

Leadership influence: We live in a complex, hyper-connected and dynamic society in which a variety of people think, work and live in their own style. Leadership is the capacity to influence others through inspiration, motivated by a passion, generated by a vision, birthed by a conviction of a sense of purpose. Running an “ultra-modern” organization and society starts with the advanced thinking of today’s digital leaders; seeks the justification of leadership via virtuous qualities, takes work and a level of credibility to roll the vision into reality.

Top leaders are change agents, they are quite eager and enthusiastic to lead an organization into good practices effectively, drive transformative change confidently. They need to deal with constant uncertainty and ambiguity, naturally gravitate to a leadership role when things are unknown, things will change, technology is involved, a tough problem has to be solved, etc. They should demonstrate the right amount of humility, embrace the diversity of thoughts and pursue the outliner’s viewpoint, make effective decisions consistently and strike the right balance of change and stability.

Common belief:
To lead and make sustainable change, we need to believe in ourselves, believe in others, also set common beliefs to develop positive attitude, guide stepwise actions and encourage desired behaviors. Keep in mind, the common belief in your local community is not the same as the global common belief, there is discrepancy in various conventional wisdom. To advance our human society, people should practice critical thinking skills to break down certain outdated beliefs, traditions, and envision a better future. Otherwise, outdated knowledge or rules could create silos, stimulate negative emotions, stifle changes, encourage mediocrity.

As most beliefs are learned and ingrained in our minds at a very young age, some are general knowledge, some are conventional wisdom, some are developed through our personal experience and subjective perception. Thus, to change your belief, you need to change your thinking in pursuit of progression. It is the collective mindset that can think forward, creatively and positively to envision a more advanced world. By holding the right set of common beliefs, either individually or collectively, we could gain empathy, build confidence, improve learning agility, make effective decisions, and take wise actions steadfastly.

Information technology: The modern society always has some connotation with the advanced technologies, which bring quality, convenience and make a significant impact on our working and living. Information Technology should be an integral part of any organization and infrastructural backbone of modern society. At a higher level of maturity, IT is the key differentiator, value creator, rule co-maker, and innovation driver. Organizational leaders need to develop IT fluency, identify and blend the ways that information and technology can assist and shape modern business by linking all digital aspects together to enforce the value creation; these are then mixed with other ingredients to create customized products and solutions which generate differentiated value for long-term growth.

Information based foresight broadens our perspective on leading transformative changes; software applications bring unprecedented convenience for us to learn, grow, communicate and innovate. From a management perspective, “simplexity” is the theme. Good business sense suggests that knowing an application's utilization and resource, IT needs to continue fine-tuning its own infrastructure, applications, and services via consolidation, modernization, integration, optimization, innovation, develop intelligence; design intuitive interfaces and improve people-centricity.

Process integration
: Effective processes improve organizational competency; efficient processes accelerate organizational speed; people-centric processes harness innovation. Business leaders should have a process-oriented perspective, seize the opportunity to take a fresh look at the processes as they underpin enterprise capabilities and build business competency. Those organizations that have optimized process management with better integration maturity outperform their competitors and tend to be more responsive to increasing pace of changes and develop long-term business competency.

The goal of process management is to consolidate, modernize, automate for improving organizational effectiveness and efficiency; to integrate for increasing management agility, coherence and creating business synergy; to optimize and innovate for enforcing collaboration and catalyzing business growth continually. Fine-tuned lightweight business processes allow information and ideas to flow fricitionlessly, harness cross-functional communication and create multifaceted business value continually.

People empowerment
: From agricultural, industrial society to knowledge and creative economy, people are always the center of changes. High-innovative organizations should understand their talent via the digital lens, encourage creativity, develop an inspiring and engaging culture based on egalitarianism to unleash collective human potential. Individually, being who you are is the prerequisite for stepping into the right game to fit your strength. Collectively, building competitive teams with complementary mindsets, experiences, talents are great to solve complex problems. Management can give full empowerment to a matured team, but not to a team that is reactive, homogeneous, complacent.

Organizational culture affects the manner by which people and groups interact with each other. In order for change to be effectively implemented within an organization, it needs to navigate through the various cultural filters that will interpret or misinterpret its intent, impact, and methodology. If culture-collective mindset or attitude stifle progressive changes. Identify all the interferences that are in the way of attaining the new culture and look at all the possible ways of overcoming them, select the best solutions and implement them. The organizations with the culture of empowerment will reap the benefits of knowledge.

Insightful leaders can bring their learning, best practices and working knowledge of past transformations into newer initiatives to lead changes and advance human society. Real societal progress is made through the work of progressive and foreseeable leaders and business professionals who can figure out how to trend the future, discover the great opportunities to unleash collective human potential, and build a highly adaptive, intelligent and innovative society.
