DDIntel - Leadership in the Digital Age

DDIntel - Leadership in the Digital Age
By DataDrivenInvestor • Issue #25 • View online
Leadership is a vital part of any business and organization. Since the beginning of the civilized age, leaders have been at the forefront of societies, shaping how we view and see our world through business-driven decisions. There is always a leader pulling the strings from governments to conglomerates. 
Along the way, there have been bad leaders as well as some remarkable ones. In politics, leaders such as Winston Churchill and US President Franklin D Roosevelt have stood the test of time as some all-time greats. In business, leaders mobilize resources and inspire long term changes in our values, culture and habits. Some plan to take us to other planets, while others want us to extend our destinies into vast digital confines.
In this issue of DDIntel, we dive into leadership. We tackle tough questions about whether great leaders are born or made, alongside what it takes to be a leader in the digital world. Similarly, we examine whether the term “fake it to you make it” is justified when climbing the career ladder alongside other insightful topics.
