As the workplace and the global economy evolve, leaders will need new skills and new management styles, writes Alan Murray. The best leaders will be those who stay flexible, plan ahead and proactively seek out new strategies and new ways of thinking about the world around them. "Managers will not be able to assume they know the answer -- because more often than not, they won't," Murray writes. "You'll need to be willing to hear hard truths from your employees, your customers, your suppliers and anyone else closer to a changing marketplace than you are."
