“Leading yourself and others is always both challenging and rewarding, but a leader’s true mettle is tested in dynamic and disruptive conditions. When uncertainty is high and the ground is shifting under your feet, an adaptive mindset is vital.” - Dr. Trish Gorman, Managing Director of the Goff Strategic Leadership Centre
Leading in Disruptive Times may sound like a special case of leadership, but to many of you it is ‘just another Tuesday.’ For industries ranging from medical devices to automobiles and from legal services to home security management, Dr. Gorman highlights that we have seen new entrants and new technologies, often from unexpected quarters disturbing the established order and posing unique and serious challenges for leaders.
For example: For players in the health diagnostics and monitoring business, the feature on Fitbit or Apple Watch providing feedback on sleep quality was an early warning. To be able to detect anomalies in heart function took the threat up a level. The as-yet-unknown potential to monitor blood sugars for diabetics, hydration for athletes, or hormones during pregnancy opens up new avenues for value creation by the disruptors in wearable monitors. Along with the gains for these innovators and for their customers comes the loss of business for the incumbents providing health care in traditional hospitals and doctors’ offices.
