How Emotional Intelligence Became a Key Leadership Skill

The most effective leaders are all alike in one crucial way: they all have a high degree of what has come to be known as emotional intelligence. It’s not that IQ and technical skills are irrelevant. They do matter, but…they are the entry-level requirements for executive positions.

The Shift: A Force of Change in the New World of Work

Whether it’s big data, the cloud, the Internet of things, robots, automation, video, collaboration platforms, supply chains analytics, etc., each interview tends to lead us down the path of how technology is driving transformational change in organizations.

What’s interesting though is that despite the fact that every day we’re exposed to more information talking about our networked world of work, what’s often not talked about in the media and rarely brought up in interviews is the fact that the structures and more importantly the culture of the hierarchy still exist in our organizations today. And the truth is, these two worlds, “the hierarchy” and what I’ll call “the network”, are at a battle with each other and most of us are completely unaware of it.

Big Data-As-A-Service Is Next Big Thing

It might not be a term you’re familiar with yet, but it suitably describes a fast-growing new market. In the last few years many businesses have sprung up offering cloud-based Big Data services to help other companies and organizations solve their data dilemmas.
