Is the Social Age Killing Top Down Leadership?
On Monday, the #SocialLeader community once again met on Twitter to talk about an important aspect of modern leadership: Can – and does – leadership now come at us from different directions and in a variety of shapes and sizes? Are we seeing the last of one-size-fits-all, top down leadership?
Over the course of an hour, we discovered:
- Many of us “Blue Unicorns” (what we call the truly social leader) are leading without the customary titles – and even without permission
- In a collaborative environment , we often prefer informal leadership versus the autocratic managers we’ve become accustomed to
- That if our existing leaders – those who certainly have the title and permission – aren’t going to lead us into the Social Age… we’ll take on that responsibility ourselves
- And much more!
Take a look at the recap below. We’re sure you’ll enjoy the insights provided by the members of the #SocialLeader community…
Please join us on Monday, May 4th at 8pm ET for our next in-depth discussion on social leadership: “Horrible Bosses: How to Help the Anti-Social Leader.” See you there!
