The Future of Leadership with Adam Kingl
Written by Jamie Hunter
October 14, 2021
Today’s global workforce is made up of 50% millennials, and in just a few short years that number is projected to balloon to 75%! And although the approach to leadership is changing, it’s not changing fast enough — what we deem important and how we lead needs to catch up.
“The number one complaint that I hear from CEOs is that our organization isn’t nearly as innovative, adaptable, and inspirational as it needs to be,” said Adam Kingl, leadership expert, speaker and author, on the Leading With Nice Interview Series. “And the reason has to do with the fact that we are still adhering to management processes and philosophies of 160 years ago. We still run our organizations as if they are 18th-century military campaigns.”
Adam’s career spans an impressive range of industries including entertainment, consulting and education, and he has spent decades working in innovation, strategy, culture and leadership. He is a highly respected expert on generational paradigms in the workplace, creativity, strategic and management innovation, the future of work, leadership, empowerment, culture and fulfilling organizational and personal purpose. In 2020, Adam’s book, Next Generation Leadership: How To Ensure Young Talent Will Thrive With Your Organization, was published by HarperCollins Leadership.
Check out the episode below to hear why Adam believes that organizations must adapt to the expectations of younger generations in order to thrive, and so much more. You don’t want to miss this one!
Resilience in a post-pandemic world
Resilience has long been a staple of leadership development, but through the current global crisis, this quality has come to define successful individuals, leaders and organisations. Through conversations with leading thinkers, practitioners and development experts, Headspring has had access to multiple perspectives on the resilience topic. In this episode, we collect some of the insights shared with us over the past few months distilling key lessons about the roots of resilience, how to foster it, and what leaders need to become more resilient in an uncertain future.
Includes leading-edge contributions from Marieluise Maiwald, Sudhanshu Palsule, Claire Dale, Patricia Peyton, Adam Kingl, Vlatka Hlupic, Stephen Frost, Jim Lawless, Nick van Dam, Jacquiline Brassey, Alex Edmans, and Alan Watkins.
OK Snowflake – Deconstructing generational mistrust
Published: Apr 16 2021
The harm goes beyond Twitter snark and Facebook memes. Our current cultural dialogue is a distractor that pits generations against each other rather than help us identify real problems and solutions.
In this episode, we explore the future of work and the lived values of Generation Y and deconstruct the tensions that cause intergenerational communication to break down.
How Generation Y spells the end of ‘sit down, shut up’ culture
Future Thinking, Season 2, Episode 2
Millennials expert Adam Kingl on the gig economy, multiple bosses and how mental health has reached a turning point.
Millennials – or Generation Y, if you prefer – have never had so many bosses, more flexible hours or more of a focus on what a company can do for them, as much as what they think they can do for it.
The rise of a more me-first mentality is likely to clash with older generations who valued an approach more focused on ‘sit down, shut up’ then self-starting, according to author and academic Adam Kingl.
In the latest episode of Future Thinking, Kingl, who spoke recently at Citywire’s World of Boutiques Europe event, outlines how millennials will fit into the modern workforce and what that means for increasingly important topics, such as mental health awareness.

Episode 007: Excite The Cynical: Leading Generation Y
Talent is the lifeblood of any organisation. How we attract and engage Generation Y (those born between 1982-2004) may be the differentiator. They are likely to make up 75% of the global workforce by 2025, so this is serious!
I talk to Adam Kingl, global educator and author of the book “Next Generation Leadership” about how leaders can spot the signals and get ahead of the war for talent.
In this episode Adam will reveal some of the results of his research including the top three things that Generation Y look for in a working environment.
We also explore the importance of thinking expansively, how shared behaviours (culture) can make or break your recruitment of great talent and how the term ‘work life balance’ will make some people hurl and others genuinely excited about the future of work.

A company’s trajectory is the result of key decisions that are taken. But not everyone feels comfortable making decisions, let alone knowing how to make good ones.

Recorded in June 2020.
Webinar: The Future of Work
Generation Y (Millennials) have very different views about work, life, careers and leadership that are wholly unfamiliar to older generations. The recession of a decade ago taught us that the selective hiring and generous development of key talent was one of the most effective responses to the crisis. Amidst COVID today, therefore, it’s necessary to leverage talent strategies that work for Gen Y, who compose half the global workforce. Understanding Gen Y also offers a profound perspective on how the practice of ‘work’ will change in the future. Author, educator, keynote speaker and advisor Adam Kingl has been researching this topic for a decade, which has just culminated in a book, Next Generation Leadership. In this webinar, he will share some of the more surprising findings and peer into the future to answer: If Gen Y have very different paradigms than those who came before, then what will our companies look like when the Ys start to lead?
