Leadership 1.0 was about searching for right answers to tell the employees. Leadership 2.0 is about searching for right questions to ask the employees.
Leadership 1.0 was all about Tell & Do. Leadership 2.0 is about Ask & Listen.
Leadership 1.0 was all about extracting work ‘from’ the employees. Leadership 2.0 is all about empowering, experimenting & exploring ‘with’ the employees. Leadership 1.0 was all about ‘Doing’. Leadership 2.0 is all about ‘Being’.
Leadership 1.0 was all about Projects, Deadlines (interesting word isnt it), Costs, Revenues and Employee was just a ‘resource’ in that land. Projects, Timelines, Costs, Revenues, Profits are still relevant and important but in the land of Leadership 2.0, employee is treated as a ‘human being’ not as a ‘human doing’.
