Leadership moment from Blue Ocean Brain

The number one skill a leader can have in a digital world is versatility—the ability to assess a situation and then respond to it quickly and effectively. Leaders can’t predict the challenges their organizations may face, but they can cultivate the ability to pivot quickly depending on the circumstances. But while many leaders possess the ability to assess the situation, some do not have that complementary skill of being able to respond quickly. 
So how do leaders increase their capacity to adjust the sails when the winds change?
Tip #1: Learn from a variety of sources. The more diverse your career path and the more varied your work experience, the more likely you are to be able to react effectively to an unknown. Prepare in advance to have a broad skill set so you can display versatility when a challenge arises.Tip #2: Build a diverse team. One person can’t do it all. Be aware of your weaknesses and potential blind spots, and surround yourself with people who have different backgrounds, experiences, and viewpoints than your own.Tip #3: Implement a system for feedback. Versatile leaders respond well to new circumstances because they are able to learn from past experiences. Ensure that you are getting feedback from the people around you, both during a challenge and after it has passed. The more systematic your approach is to learning your strengths and weaknesses, the more likely you will be to learn something new and implement it in the future.Tip #4: Embrace continuing education. The best leaders never stop learning. Always be searching to gain new skills and awareness of those you are lacking. The most versatile leaders are also the most well-rounded!

Watch: For more discussion on the key attributes the versatile leaders of tomorrow should have, check out this video with Rob Kaiser, president at Kaiser Leadership Solutions.
