SKOLKOVO asked HR, T&D, L&D managers and CEO of major Russian corporations about the current needs in executive education.
What will corporations teach their leaders in 2021?
“One of the findings of the study that has most impressed me is the focus on team value, rather than on individual results. According to the HR community, the most demanded competencies for 2021 are those linked to building high-performing teams and cross-functional interactions. Trying to meet the challenges of uncertainty, organisations are doing their best to break down barriers between functional units and to operate more flexibly. We expect 2021 to be the year of cross-functional teams and agile organisations.”
