Navigate the New Corporate Climate and Succeed with Unmasking Leadership: What They Don’t Tell You
CEO, Jesus Eddie Campa of Leading Through Adversity (LTA) created LTA as a leadership development program for up-and-coming visionary leaders and senior leaders. His book Unmasking Leadership: What They Don’t Tell You is meant to assist executives trying to navigate the ever-changing corporate world and excel in their careers. LTA also offers an array of classes, seminars, and coaching for businesses that need assistance in developing leaders.
Campa states, “Today’s leaders face complicated challenges, mounting scrutiny, flatter organizations, and a future that guarantees more of each. As a result, those who aspire to take on leadership roles will need to employ a unique combination of intellectual and emotional strengths.”
“The leadership model of the future is predicted to have fewer managers, fewer levels, and a more collaborative environment,” according to expert forecasters Jesus Eddie Campa, Marvin J. Cetron, and Owen Davies. “There is evidence of this in Fortune 100 companies, where the proportion of executives in both the top and middle tiers dropped about five percentage points between 2000 and 2021, while the proportion in the bottom tier rose from 7.1% to 17.8%, according to a study of each firm’s top 10 executives,” says leadership expert Campa.
LTA points out that in addition to this changing structure, the business environment demands higher ethical behavior, accountability, and strategic execution. Campa shares, “Characteristics that will help leaders succeed in such an environment are being described with terms such as courage, confidence, and spirituality while left-brain competencies are often called into play in this fast-paced global environment, it may well be the emotionally based right-brain competencies such as intuition and reflection that give the edge to future leaders.”
This program encourages innovation, collaboration, diversity, and multinational problem-solving techniques that help build a stronger presence, inquisitiveness, and willingness to question the status quo. The leadership expert states, “Never underestimate the aptitudes, creativity, and change-management maturity that proven leaders in one industry can bring to another industry if you set them loose and let them help formulate their vision of what your organization could be.”
Leading Through Adversity improves corporate and public sector productivity through a combination of research, community engagement activities, and strategic planning focused on human capital leadership. With over 30 years of experience in leadership and leadership development, LTA has developed some of the best strategic plans for the future which have identified and analyzed the upcoming major issues and future trends expected to influence workforce productivity.
“The focus on leadership development is vitally important for another reason. The economic data estimates a shortage of 9.3 million workers by the end of 2021,” LTA states. They explain that this adds a sense of urgency to the need to develop new leadership talent. “Organizations have already begun looking outside their companies and, indeed, outside their industries for leadership talent, which is a great thing for leaders in one industry looking to shift gears to another industry,” LTA claims.
Executives are facing unprecedented pressures with global competition, limited resources, and an increased emphasis on delivering results which have contributed to the rising focus on developing leaders. Leading through Adversity and Unmasking Leadership: What They Don’t Tell You can help with the continuing changes and challenges leaders will undoubtedly need assistance within the coming future.
