Mostafa Sayyadi, Author, Transformational Leadership: How To Prosper as a Leader In Today's Hypercompetitive Environment

“A leader. . .is like a shepherd. He stays behind the flock, letting the most nimble go out ahead, whereupon the others follow, not realizing that all along they are being directed from behind.”

— Nelson Mandela

The business environment is constantly changing as organizations are increasingly participating in global markets. Hypercompetition has become the norm. Organizations compete globally but must think locally if they expect to exceed. These new and improved globalized markets place demands on the roles of leaders in organizations operating in this modern environment. Leaders are, in fact, faced with challenging economic conditions today with global competition increasing and the need to be number one or two in an industry or fail to keep up with the market place.

With new sexual harassment scandals being uncovered almost every day, it seems an uncomfortable workplace has become the norm.

A 2016 study by the US Equal Opportunity Commission found that between 25% to 85% of American women reported having experienced sexual harassment in the workplace. If there's an even more sobering statistic than a minimum 1/4 of women experiencing workplace harassment, it might be this one: 75% of employees who spoke out against mistreatment faced retaliation afterwards.

At this year’s Super Bowl, for many fans and sports pundits, the unthinkable happened. Nick Foles, the Eagles back-up quarter back, led his team to victory over the most decorated quarterback in NFL history. And he played knowing that even with an historic win, his position was not secured long term as Carson Wentz continues to recuperate from his season-ending injury.

Building a successful, Purpose led business is probably the one thing that will make the difference between dying a slow death and building a thriving company in the decades to come. Empowered consumers, radical transparency across value chains and a generation of consumers that breath technology like air are just a few factors that underpin the changes ahead.

It is not surprising that most CEOs and other senior leaders put a brake on their personal development as a leader once they are in that position. First, they got to where they are by being who they are! Who can argue with that? And second, the job as a CEO can often be overwhelming, time-limiting and lonely. And there is so much more operational stuff to learn, in areas where they are not experts.  Hardly surprising that they tend to feel “There is just no time for continuing to develop as a leader”.
