Leadership is the ability to translate vision into reality. – Warren Bennis
e-leaders encourage successful digital transformation and innovation, using advanced information and communication technologies. Their e-leadership skills are essential because they stimulate economic growth and create new jobs, thanks to the full use of new, innovative technologies.
E-leadership skills refer to competencies that enable individuals to initiate and direct digital innovations at all levels of business – from startups to the largest corporations; both in private companies and in public companies. e-leaders possess business and digital skills, but also the ability to lead strategically.
One of the main challenges facing EU member states today is the large gap between academia and industry in terms of e-leadership skills. Through the eSkills for Jobs initiative, the EU proposed an education model that would enable students to acquire general, broad e-skills, but also more thorough knowledge in a specific field. The result is summarized in a T display of e-leadship skills where the horizontal line (the “top” of the letter T) represents general skills, while the vertical line of the letter T represents more detailed knowledge.
