Profound leaders and professionals are open and deep, able to apply multiple thinking processes to expand their perspective of circumstances, and leverage nonlinear logic in dealing with varying situations wisely.

Back to the root of the word “profundity,” it means insightful understanding; it requires a person's ability to grasp or comprehend information, be able to see beyond the obvious, look around the corner, dig into the root cause of the problems, and climb the knowledge-insight-wisdom pyramid step-wisely in order to solve problems thoroughly. The gap between knowledge and insight is about the depth of understanding.

They are at the transition stage from operating a mechanical organization to running a dynamic digital living business. Digital organizations are the mixed bag of something old and new; physical building and virtual platform, with a diverse workforce working in different functions running varying speeds. A digital workplace encompasses so much that it's hard to isolate it from other dimensions of the enterprise. What is the logical scenario to overcome challenges and revitalize the digital workforce to be future-ready?

Innovativerenewal Organizations become over-complex, uncertain, and ambiguous, they are like the living thing with the ability to continually change, renew as the world changes and evolves with an intersecting and interacting business ecosystem constantly.
