#LiDE is a series of webinars that aim at equipping leaders in microfinance institutions with the necessary skills and understanding of tools to effectively lead a team in digital world.
The idea was developed based on lessons learnt from the Digital Literacy Bootcamp devoted to digital transformation in microfinance.
Digitalize or die – offering services online is no longer an alternative for MFIs; it is the way as people all over the world change their preferences towards any type of brand and sector. However, today’s leaders must manage not only an organization that undergoes a digital transformation.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic boosted the fact that more and more employees work remotely. They have been suddenly forced to deal with work challenges in a time of volatility, anxiety, fast changing circumstances and many uncontrolled risks. Thus, the leaders manage people that live in a VUCA world (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous). They manage virtual teams that often consist of three generations (X, Y, Z) with varying skills and attitudes.
This requires leaders to make sure they improve skills like emotional intelligence, managing generational differences, and building an organizational culture that embraces fast changing consumers’ preferences and fashion, driven by accelerating technology.
The webinars help microfinance leaders in building the always winning team, by:
[Track 1] Leadership in digital era: leadership skills and agile mindset for digital transformation
[Track 2] Digital teams: managing, motivating, monitoring and communicating with teams working from home
[Track 3] Talent digital development: online recruitment and training
We are coming back with new webinars in Autumn. For now, check out the 2021 recordings below.
