Characteristics of a Next-Generation Leader

Next-generation leadership. It’s more than just a catchphrase, it’s a foundation for better workplaces, relationships, and individual and collective well-being.

‘We’re living in unprecedented times’! 

This statement has become the catchcry of the last couple of years, constantly heard in conversations around the world; a world in which we are increasingly dealing with unforeseen, untested and unknown circumstances.

In the midst of all this turmoil, we are seeing a new type of leader coming to the fore during this time of adversity: the next-generation leader.

What is a Next Generation Leader?

However, this is not a new phenomenon.

The framework of leadership has evolved over the last couple of decades, to become a much more collaborative affair. So how do we define a next-generation leader?

The Queensland University of Technology describes them as leaders who are equipped in strategic thinking, leading change, building a culture of performance and strengthening of personal responsibility and accountability.

Here are just some of the characteristics that set a next-generation leader apart:

1. Adaptable and Agile

Even before the pandemic, the one certainty in our world was changed. The leaders of today need to be adaptable to constant disruption, focused on making a positive difference and not driven by results. What sets a next-generation leader apart is that they have learned to master change, and are able to negotiate outcomes in a climate of instability.

2. Emotionally Intelligent

This is a key to success both personally and professionally. Being able to control and manage your own emotions necessarily provides empathy to support and overcome workplace challenges.

3. Collaborative

A key facet of a next-generation leader is the ability to understand that the best results come when the work is not demanded by those in power, but rather driven by a team of enthusiastic problem solvers.

4. Authentic Communicators

These are leaders who listen more than they speak. They encourage open and honest conversation which in turn cultivates fresh perspectives and ideas.

5. Prioritise Wellbeing

A next-generation leader understands that they cannot pour from an empty cup. They don’t just pay lip service to self-care, but rather have made nurturing their physical, emotional and mental wellbeing a priority.

Next-generation leadership. It’s more than just a catchphrase, it’s a foundation for better workplaces, relationships, and individual and collective well-being.
