10 traits of the digital leader

Workshop | Spanish

Did you know that 50% of  what you will be using in 10 years’ time has yet to be invented?

According to Google, interest in digital transformation has increased by 2000% in the last four years. If you are reading this, you are probably one of the people interested in it. This is not a new concept – since being applied on a massive scale in companies way back in the 1970s, the aim of information systems has been to transform business processes. The exponential impact of said transformation is now so great that every single company takes it into account. But whilst focussing on the impact, technology, processes, products and customers, one very important aspect is often overlooked: the impact on leadership.

If some one asked you to look back 15 years and think about what the world was like and how you worked, we would all agree that everything has changed – including leadership styles. ESADE Alumni Careers invites you to a new flash session entitled “The ten traits of an e-leader”, which will examine what a leader in this context should be like. We will consider the ten traits needed not only to survive this revolution but to become successful managers.
