Leadership is the biggest shortage that organizations are currently facing and will continue to face in the foreseeable future. This talent is of utmost importance for organizations, yet, there is a short supply of leaders in today’s business world. In a scenario such as this, what do farsighted organizations do? They start mentoring for future leadership roles right away.
They foresee the role of leadership in the organization many years and decades down the line and start the process of mentoring leaders in their organization. Smart organizations that have a long-term vision of their aims and objectives don’t wait for things to happen. They make things happen. They do not swing into action when they are forced to, but do so far in advance of a crisis. Thinking ahead and taking early actions help them to blunt the effects of a crisis. This is the distinguishing feature between average and extraordinary organizations.
