The increasing imperativeness of technology in leadership.

Meetings are part and parcel of any kind of industry across the globe. They are vital in terms of the decision-making process for a company, plan, and procedure execution in a company, so on and so forth. For the longest time, the conduction of meetings and the leadership qualities involved in it were not as technologically impacted as they are now (MacNeil, J. R., et. al., 2015). And the introduction of various kinds of technology has helped the meetings and their effectiveness in various ways. Technological advancement has also helped leadership qualities as now people can easily convey and project their ideas and notes before the members of the meeting.  Numerous examples could be observed of technological advancements such as Webcams, Projectors, Conferencing software.

Leadership plays a significant role in everyone’s life, not only at a professional level but on a personal level as well.

This is why leadership training should be made an integral part of the education system, so it becomes mandatory for students to learn about leadership qualities and develop their mental faculties reading the subject.
