At present, most companies, if not all, are immersed in a process of change and transformation. Digitization is changing traditional products and services, erasing the traditional sectoral boundaries that divided the business fabric and changing the ways of consumption. All this has a direct impact on the culture and organization of companies and the team leader stands as a key figure of change. Managers from Adecco Group, CNP Partners, Dealz Spain, Ferrovial, Sanitas, Sacyr and SAP debated the «Challenges of Cultural and Organizational Transformation» at Talent Breakfast sponsored by Transform Action and Talentoo. Digital transformation has changed the way companies do business and get closer to their customers. A change that has also translated into a deep internal transformation of organizations and their way of working. Given the great cultural diversity and professional profiles of Sanitas, the company created a few months ago the Department of Digital Talent and Culture, led by Bea Makowka, «I like to talk about transformation starting the word in trans and train. That is, transforming forming. Each person has a different need in this transformation and for me it is a great opportunity to adjust the change to the need of each one. » The need for new leadership. In this process of transformation that affects the organization and culture of companies, the manager and his style of leadership play a key role. As Transform Action’s founding partner, Hector Infer comments, «the selection model is influenced by elevating expert leaders, ie technical leaders who have a personal ambition to achieve results and who adapt to the organization, but the profile that we are looking for is a leader capable of assuming personal responsibility, that manages diversity, able to play as a team, a leader who has more questions than answers. He is an excellent conductor who allows the talent of each player to be expressed and, from there, is able to share information and generously create a spirit of community, contribute value, use empathy and put all this to the service of the sustainability of the company «. This is a vision that Helena Valderas agrees with, Head of Engagement & Diversity of Ferrovial, adding that «we must promote leaders who humanize the work spaces from the generation of values. Nowadays we all have access to knowledge and we do not seek cognitive leaders, we look for leaders who really lead, who generate engagement and who make employees not only fans of the company but also of the project. «. For his part, the director of Innovation and Development of Human Resources of Sacyr, Gerardo Lara, believes that values ​​are key in leadership. «We work for our company to be a leader and for this we focus on Sacyr being a company that cares about the environment, which guarantees long-term economic and financial stability, etc. That is, a company that generates a series of values. If we are able to create that organizational space, I am sure that leaders and professionals will live the company, while people who do not share these values ​​will not have the leadership we seek and possibly will end up going. » The manager and generational diversity. For Nuria Esparza, of Adecco Group, the generational coexistence «will lead to a transformation in the way of working and organizations will have to help managers to have a constant change mentality.» At this point, Helena Valderas, of Ferrovial, wanted to break a spear in favor of senior talent that brings together the key knowledge of organizations. «Of course we have to train and develop the new generations that come in to be the leaders of tomorrow, but we also have to be able to generate synergies between the senior and the junior. Gabriela Infer Arrom, manager of Transform Action, added that «a culture of inclusion encourages teamwork. The tools are vehicles, but we have to implement in organizations a culture of inclusion that has to do with respecting the wisdom of the elders. » In this sense, Gabriela said that «we need a facilitator leader, a mentor leader who develops the potential, but at the same time is an inclusive leader.» Read the full interview.
