The future? Transformational leadership with broad-spectrum distributed skills

The skills of the effective leader in the age of artificial intelligence are a unique and constantly evolving mix.
The fundamental point is the acquisition and development, by the leader, of a broad spectrum or "range" of skills, from the more technical and "hard" ones, such as specialist skills, decision-making ability and the ability to deal with tasks with a focus also on the short and long term, on the "transversal" ones such as humility, adaptability and the ability to create vision and engagement and, no less important, the ethical rigor essential in the times of exhaustive use of data by of artificial intelligence.
The leader must also be able to accompany growth and take care of the psychological safety of his collaborators, acting as a real "coach".
In this context, through its ability to identify the necessary changes, it will have to be able to involve collaborators in the implementation process, better organizing the hybrid work and providing constant feedback and forwards.

Agostino Santoni and Maurizio Stirpe: “Drawing a vision, active labor policies”

“Managers must have the ambition to work on what I define as 'modern leadership'...", explains Agostino Santoni to Filippo Poletti in the book.
“‘Modern leadership’ must have the ability to design a vision, a strategy and a plan, it must bring people on board and it must communicate internally and externally to the company. The 'command and control' model has been over for a long time. There are two key words that represent the guiding star of this vision: the first is transparency, the second is trust".
And the inspiration dedicated to training also comes from Santoni.
“We must increase digital skills even among the most disadvantaged categories, promoting social inclusion: either we make digital a subject of study in primary school, secondary school and university or we will not be a more competitive country”.
On the topic of enhancing human capital, the vice president of Confindustria Maurizio Stirpe indicates the need “to have active labor policies that are able to address the issues posed by the digital and green transition. Once upon a time, you were born into a company and spent 35 years in the same company before retiring. Today you risk changing jobs at least four or five times in your working career. This can of course be done if there is a mechanism for relocating people. The central theme is to move protection from the individual workplace to that of the worker and, therefore, to adopt active policies".
