With globalization, technological invention, and the increasing number of associations among people, activities, and events, today’s tempo of change is never-ending. We live in a world run by the commercial and technological revolution. With the change, leaders need to be both attuned to the impact of technology on their business and highly flexible as a result.

In these volatile, unpredictable, and continually controversial times, effective leadership is crucial. As Harvard’s John Kotter observed: “Leadership is very much related to change. As the pace of change accelerates, there is naturally a greater need for effective leadership.

Emerging Leadership Trends To Look Out For In 2022

In 2022, I believe that this year will bring a major change in how the brand market and the product. And  Leadership trends will emerge. Leadership is the art of attracting people to follow your lead, willingly. If no one is following you then you aren't a leader. Just a dictator going for a walk, on your own. Leaders use influence, not coercion to change the mindsets of people. Leaders are both visionaries and missionaries. They see in their mind a better business, community or situation and try to communicate how much better it can be but often without success. Their influence and confidence inspire followers or by the leader's confidence, they are allowed to act on their vision to see if it can be achieved. Often the followers are in doubt about whether the better outcome or vision of the leader is true but they follow them for their confidence and passion. A leader is always being judged by their outcomes, not the title.

Habits are overlearned modes of behaviour. When someone starts giving the same response to some stimuli over some time, they form a habit.
