In many parts of Asia, we expect a "good" boss to have all the answers for us. We categorize bosses by how much they know, and are often disdainful of the ones who have less experience than we do.
In the new reality of exponential change in business and social environments due to new technologies, disruptive innovations and novel business models, it would not be realistic to expect anyone to have all the answers. In fact, things are changing so fast that even the experts do not always know which are the right questions to ask.
So what can we do to prepare for the new landscapes of work and social change? Instead of looking to the boss flor answers, we need to develop new skills and the mindset to learn and implement new knowledge while working with our teams to explore and disrupt our own business before we get disrupted by others.
We can't wait for the boss to tell us what to do. We need to transform the way bosses and teams work together and adapt to change.
