The past couple of years have impacted the global economy in unprecedented ways. The pandemic, a raging war, an uncertain political climate, and inflation at large have brought more volatility and uncertainty into the business world.
CEOs and senior leaders cope with unprecedented demands, being forced to make decisions about uncharted territory, leading in times of crisis. Leaders are no longer simply accountable for financial performance or creating shareholder value but report to a rising number of stakeholders. Their role has also become more public-facing with the rise of social media and PR.
This is a tall order to navigate and it means reimagining senior leadership roles in the wake of these expectations. Senior leaders have to gain a global perspective, redefine their critical thinking abilities, embrace digital transformation trends, and wear multiple hats successfully to battle disruption and innovate at the pace of change.
