Do you have what it takes to be a leader in the future?
Organizations are facing tough challenges because of the global megatrends, the digital age, and a new set of demands from employees, especially from the millennials. These megatrends are driving business forward, and forcing new behavior into organizations, leaders, and employees.
- Holism – A new holistic approach to strategy, leadership, and people, with an updated mindset and skill-set for you and your leaders.
- Responsiveness – Trimming and redefining your organization and culture to respond fast enough.
- Entrepreneurship – A redesign of the way you organize work, constant innovation, internal startups, and a portfolio approach
Are you unsure of your skills?
This tool provides an assessment of such leadership skills. The tool consists of a feedback form, based on the behavior and role, that a leader in the Future of Work should master.
The assessment has three steps:
- Get familiar with the behavior and role, that a leader should master
- Take the assessment, either alone (if you’re assessing yourself) or in a group (if your team is assessing you)
- Evaluate the result, and make a direction for your development
1: Get familiar with the behavior and role, that a leader should master

The tool consists of 11 areas, each with a rating scale for the strength of the area, and with a comment field for specific examples. (By the way, contact us if you need the PowerPoint version of these documents.)
You can use it personally for self-assessment, or in a group for getting feedback to you from each team member in your team … or in other ways that fit your agenda and intention.
Typically it takes 30 minutes for a good introduction to Future Of Work and the role of a leader, and another 30 minutes for a team to fill in the template. We normally facilitate this by introducing each topic one at a time with explanations, and then leaving 2-3 minutes to the team members for evaluating, prior to moving to the next topic.
3: Evaluate the result, and make a direction for your development
Look at the result. If you also have gathered feedback from your team, look at that too.
