Future Leadership skill requirement

The old axiom that there are two certainties in life, death and taxes, has been expanded by a third certainty: change.

Should this third certainty have an impact on the nature of leadership in the future?

My view, Absolutely!.

In uncertain environments, a core skill has to be the management of ambiguity, and so it is reasonable to expect leaders of the future to be good at receiving, processing and articulating inconclusive, ambiguous, and often contradictory information, in a way that offers a sense of certainty and security to those being led.
