I'm excited to announce that I will be teaching a course entitled
Becoming a Digital Leader
this November in Sydney and Melbourne, Australia. Co-hosted by
, the course is a first-of-its-kind offering designed to help current and aspiring leaders at all levels better prepare themselves for today's digital realities and our digital future. If you are in or near either of those cities,
please check the course out
and register! And of course I appreciate your help spreading the word to folks who are based in the area.
I was also recently invited by GAIA Insights to contribute to a proposal for an Executive Education program being developed for leaders of a global pharmaceutical company. They have identified "tech savvy" as a core element of leadership development, and GAIA's Managing Director thought I was an excellent choice to meet their needs.
Could these opportunities be an indication that we're finally approaching a digital literacy tipping point? Are organizations recognizing that the Digital Era requires digitally sophisticated leaders at all levels and in all functional areas? Are they willing to devote resources to ensuring their leaders have the necessary capabilities to pursue the opportunities and tackle the challenges that social and digital technologies present? Time will tell, of course, but I'd love to think we're getting there. I still believe it's a question of when, not if, and I know that sooner is better than later.
