Leaders in Digital Era

Welcome to our new webinar series aiming at equipping leaders in microfinance institutions with the necessary skills and understanding of tools to effectively lead a team in digital world.

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.

MFC has been providing basic rules and principles of digitalizing microfinance in its Digital Literacy Bootcamp.

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.

In this series of webinars, we aim at helping leaders in building the always winning team, by:

  • Empowering responsibility of employees
  • Adopting agile work style
  • Taming online office work

We will touch upon such topics as: top leadership skills, engaging human capital of staff, partners and suppliers, motivating people working from home, communicating online and many more.
