Unfortunately, too many executives underestimate the risk of their leadership capabilities not keeping pace with these seismic shifts, a 2017 report by Deloitte found*.
Its survey of 800 global business executives found 90% are redesigning their organisations to be more dynamic and agile, yet they underestimate the crucial demand for “a completely different type of leader “.
