The energy sector needs conscious leadership.

Leaders who strike a balance between environment and economics.

‘Carbon footprint’ is no longer a fashionable term, but a harsh reality.…

As governments become more environmentally conscious and put greater emphasis on energy efficiency and conservation, industries too need to follow suit, and create a balance between the economics of their business and its ecological impact.

Hence, finding alternative energy solutions is the need of the hour.

But, many companies have already invested heavily in traditional oil and gas exploration, production and distribution. Herein lies the dilemma for leaders in the energy sector, who need to mitigate potential risks, as they devise solutions for the future.

Add to that, the diversity of the energy market, which changes from almost one state to another, makes this sector a complex and dynamic one for leaders to navigate.

This puts heavy demands on leadership in the energy sector.

They require a comprehensive skill set like technical, analytical, problem-solving, collaboration skills, stakeholder management skills as well as a visionary approach. They need to balance opportunities and risks, as they articulate strategy for execution and drive people together with shared purpose and aligned values.

Moreover, in the energy sector, the costs of delays lend a heavy blow to the profit margins. So, while technical competencies are important, quintessential leadership and management skills also become crucial.

Additionally, leaders have to factor in governmental regulations, and a conscious mindset that strikes a balance between environment and economics. They need to proactively think about conservation and sustainability.

Thus, energy leaders need to be open to absorbing the complexity of the field...

Their attributes should be that of curiosity to learn, and courage to manage the risks and responsibilities the sector holds.

Finding the right fit for a company thus requires recruiters to have in-depth knowledge of the sector and the candidate.
