In this digital and VUCA age, information is easily accessible. Thus, a leader needs to distinguish between an informed or resourceful person and an intelligent person.

At times, a person who occupies a high position in the organization hierarchy may have access to ‘privileged’ information about the company’s medium to long-term strategic plans. He may then use this information to impress his subordinates and thus, make himself appear to be intelligent. Is he really intelligent or is he merely more informed due to his position in the organization?

An adaptive leader in VUCA era should be able to tell the difference between intelligence and being informed or resourceful. 

What practices have you implemented to be resourceful leader?
