One of the major changes that senior leaders need to start embracing, as a consequence of digital playing a much larger role in our lives, is the loss of control.
Traditionally, leaders wanted to have their boundaries of control very well-defined. This is the message we put out to our consumers. This is how we expect our consumers to behave. This is what we expect our employees to behave like.
