There are multiple factors that necessitate a higher order of leadership. Some of them are:
86% of respondents to a recent 2016 World Economic Forum Survey think that there is
leadership crisis in the world today, and many companies are worried about their bench
The other factor that is driving change, is that over the next 10 years, millennials
will double as the proportion of the workforce.
In many of our leadership workshops, when we ask the question –
“how many of you consider yourself a leader?”, less than 10% of the hands go up!
All of the above only demonstrates the need to transcend to a higher level of awareness and
capability, in our current and future leaders. What should be different, better or new?
