The Future of Leadership for Independent Agents

Future of Leadership for Insurance Agents

As workplaces have changed, so too have the people inside them.

The next generation of workers are likely to change jobs more often than previous generations. They will often need to upskill and reskill to continue growing in their careers. And they value different things in work than previous generations.

Agency leaders may need to shift their approaches to help foster leadership at all levels within their agencies. That may look like allowing more flexibility, investing in training or mentorship programs to help employees grow, or making more space for non-traditional roles.

Top things agencies can do to prepare for the future of work

  • Get comfortable with hybrid
  • Invest in technology
  • Lead with empathy
  • Invest in DE&I

Tyler's Open Letter

The leaders of tomorrow will look different and value very different things than their predecessors.

Embracing the new era of work also means embracing this new generation of leaders.

Not all leaders necessarily have the title to match their potential—or at least not yet. Leaders can emerge from any level, and fostering the qualities of leadership within all employees, independent of title, will allow you to grow talent from within.
