Yolanda Cuba Vice President Southern & East Africa, MTN Group
Leading teams and organisations today versus our pre Covid 19 reality requires a completely different skill set. Emphasis needs to be placed on outcomes achieved and trust rather than hours worked and constant monitoring. One thing is for sure we are jointly writing a new standard operating procedure (SOP) as we go. Executives that are effectively navigating today’s reality will help shape the future work environment.
We have already learnt so much in terms of what does and doesn’t work but we are far from achieving the perfect balance with leaders and employees all currently experiencing numerous teething problems.
Yolanda Cuba is inspiring, honest and authentic. I have watched this interview many times and yet every time i take away more nuggets that I can use in my own work reality. This is the first in a series of such conversations and I hope it will inspire you to be brave and above all dare you to do things differently. Today doesn’t require yesterday’s thinking.
