The first part of the trilogy – ‘Digital Transformation – Leadership with Dr. Paul J. Bailo’ has just been released. In this part of the podcast, Dr. Paul J. Bailo shares his views about the importance of leadership in digital transformation. He also stressed on the key reasons why it has become imperative for organizations to focus on creating a digital model during the global health crisis and have to forcibly operate within restricted space.
“I don’t see how any organization in this current world could survive without a true digital leadership model,” says Dr. Paul J. Bailo, Executive, Digital Strategy, Data & Innovation. “The leadership model of the physical world is in the past. The forefront and cornerstone of every business must be digital from here on if they want to survive and become successful.”
Paul has a string of achievements to his credit and it includes empowering the expansion processes of multinationals, mentoring top performers, coordinating strategic planning, comprehensive handling of P&L budget, and, building significant market partnerships.
The reputed digital thought leader opines that with the coronavirus forcing nearly everyone to work from home, there is a pressing need to follow a true digital leadership model.
Paul says a real digital leader is one with a vision and the knowledge of bringing together people, and processes and making the best use of them even during the restraining challenges imposed byCovid-19.
Companies are suddenly waking up to the reality that their digital model is not current. While the experienced digital leaders are aware of the need to improve upon the digital model, the execution part poses the biggest challenge.
A digital leader must not remain in their comfort zone. They must break out of their shells, network, and build relationships, outside their domain. This can help them make the brain work differently so that perfect business management solutions can be quickly crafted.
Paul says that the organization leadership must have the enthusiasm to put the various components of the digital framework together to move ahead. This cannot be achieved without collaboration.
Companies going digital need new talent, new models, and new leadership skills. These are not easy to find. Even the implementation of digital processes requires a different mindset which can be extremely difficult for most people.
A good digital leader must –
Be humane and speak the truth
Have a vision that people can understand and connect with
Be curious about tech, developments in other fields and other things in general
A good digital leader must also know to fine-tune their skill, must be passionate about tech, and most importantly, loves people.
