There is sufficient evidence to conclude that entrepreneurs are redefining leadership in their own way.

The New Style

  • Anticipatory leadership - leaders who demonstrate the skill to anticipate what may come down the line
  • They developed “Slow thinking”
    • Studies show this skill enhances one’s ability to impact future outcomes

Recommendations

  1. Allocate more time within self-managed teams to think more about future directions
  2. Question intuition often by means of slow, strategic thinking
  3. Refine referent power in a continuous improvement fashion in order to perfect intuition over time
  4. Adopt a digital tool to capture and nurture ideas across the LMAX environment for better decision making
  5. Conduct more research on the impact of LMAX in the context of Anticipatory leadership

Risk

  • Anticipatory leaders are highly self-driven risk-takers with a cognitive bias towards optimism
  • Self-awareness is vital for Anticipatory leaders

The Future

  • The world will witness further evolution of Anticipatory leaders
    • Opportunities are presenting faster but only open for short periods of time
