100% de acuerdo con las competencias que expone (aunque personalmente algunas ya las englobaría dentro de metacompetencias y una en valores):

 

1. Análisis de futuro, estrategia y entorno (y ser capaz de transmitirlo al equipo)

2. Asertividad

3. Proactividad

4. Empatía

5. Ética y credibilidad

6. Capacidad de comunicación (y transmisión)

7. Creador de equipos orientados a (soluciones) y resultados

8. Creativo, soñador, con ideas

9. Flexibilidad y gestión de errores

10. Motivación

 

Lo cierto es que, si una persona las desarrolla y las pone en marcha conseguirá que su equipo le siga y asegurara su competencia y consecución de resultados.

This is a long overdue and meaningful change. Am very much looking forward to it.

John Michel's curator insight, May 27, 2013 10:36 AM

Organisations must also accommodate the different work attitudes and motivations of the generations, moving if necessary to a flatter organisational structure and providing opportunities for freer movement.

Deborah Long's curator insight, May 27, 2013 9:58 PM

An organizational shift and transition will occur in the work place as Generations X and Y inherit leadership roles once held by retiring Baby Boomers. Guided by a different set of values than Boomers, Gen X and Y will likely redefine leadership in years to come.
