Highly Effective Digital Leaders

In this week’s episode,  my guest is Kate Thomas, Founder of Leadership Effectiveness company, NewlandRock.


We discuss ‘Highly effective digital leaders’


In particular the challenges digital leaders face in companies today and what defines the most effective individuals.


We also explore what companies are increasingly looking for as digital leadership qualities and how they can assess for this.


Furthermore, we discuss:

• Talent is the differentiating asset in any organisation and the best product doesn’t equate to the best results

• Headline leadership characteristics that companies are looking for in digital executives today

• The common themes that digital leaders are grappling with – especially those managing digital transformation

• Defining the agile digital leader and an agile organisation


My thanks to Kate for being part of Digital Careers.
