How Uber and Airbnb Will Change The Face Of Leadership

In a world where customers and service providers can now rate each other, could this situation be extrapolated to the corporate landscape?

Uber, Airbnb and many other service providers allow us to rate the service we receive and in turn, the service provider is asked to rate the guest.

What if employees could compare leaders based on their personalities, behaviors, decisions and leadership styles. What if it was up to the leader to compete for talent in the public marketplace and to meet the wants of employees? I recently read an article by a colleague on LinkedIn that had me contemplate a new corporate concept and in turn the implications of what this could mean for leaders of the 21st century.

So how would this scenario impact you as a woman in leadership?

  • If you are aspiring to a leadership role, you need to invest in your leadership skills so that you attract team leaders and peers to you. By refining your skills you'll you'll always be ready for the next big opportunity.

  • I have no doubt that more and more leaders are looking for team members that have solid values and display those through every aspect of their role. Team members and team leaders seek greater fulfillment and purpose from their work. Being fully aware of what drives your motivation will put you in a place of securing a role that serves you well beyond the financial returns.

  • We are on display now more than ever. We now compete in a global marketplace. Understanding who you are, what you do, how you do it and why you do it will help you articulate your value both internally and externally. 

  • Leaders, in this world, have to model the behaviors they seek. If you want to attract talent to your team or organisation you must lead yourself first before asking others to lead with you. 

So if today you were competing for talent, how would others view and rate you and your leadership skills? Would they want to be led by you?

Now is your time to drive your success as a leader.  The world is finally ready for empowered women.
