From Military to Digital Leadership Styles

🔥NEW About 100 years back, business management schools borrowed their concepts of leadership/management in armed forces. The mindset of an officer in the armed forces is very different from the mindset needed in continuous, infinite competitive, ever changing business operations.
More so, in the present high-speed digital era with tech-savvy business teams, I think it is time to rethink the concepts and assumptions behind the traditional thinking of leadership with a digital (hybrid) business context.
